Fortnite and the NBA have teamed up to bring a large roster of customizable basketball players to the world’s most popular Battle Royale. Here is how players can get all of the Fortnite NBA Basketball skins.
Similar to how Fortnite teamed up with the NFL to bring American football skins to the game, now you can play as a member of your favorite basketball team. Epic Games launched a collaboration with the NBA to bring players The Crossover event. This event features a new Creative hub, special game mode, and new skins.
Fortnite has released basketball-themed skins in the past, but not to this extent. The NBA skins introduce ten new character models that can each be customized. Players can choose to rep any of the 30 NBA teams as well as a unique Fortnite jersey. They can also choose which number they want their character to wear.
How to get the Fortnite NBA basketball skins
The Fortnite NBA basketball skins were available at the start of The Crossover event on May 21. They have since left the Item Shop, but that doesn’t mean they won’t return. The sports-themed skins usually make a return once or twice a season. Season 6 saw the return of the customizable soccer skins as well as the NFL skins.
There are ten different NBA character models, and each one costs 1,500 V-Bucks. However, players could buy a bundle of five skins for 3,500 V-Bucks. The Shoot & Score pack will likely return when the player skins do. This 600 V-Buck bundle comes with the Mini Hoop back bling and Hookshot basketball toy.
It’s uncertain when the Fortnite NBA basketball skins will return, but it should be sometime during Season 7. At the latest, the NBA skins will return at the start or end of next season. The Crossover event was held to celebrate the NBA Playoffs, and the same or new versions of the skins could return next year.
Fortnite leaks reveal free Major Mancake skin coming in Chapter 3 Season 3
Fortnite leakers have just discovered a new Mancake skin in the files called Major Mancake that should be released in Chapter 3 Season 3.
Mancake, who is literally a man with a pancake head, is one of the most popular Fortnite characters. He is about to get a ‘Major’ upgrade in Chapter 3 Season 3.
Mancake and his unreal adventures in Butter Barn are quite famous among Fortnite players. The character has been on the island since Chapter 2 Season 5 and has played a significant role in the storyline repeatedly.
Here’s a preview of the upcoming Major Mancake skin in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3.
How to get Major Mancake skin in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3
To be fair, the Major Mancake skin isn’t a noteworthy upgrade to the original skin. There are minor differences in the the outfit’s color scheme and the head is now more pancake-like.
Here’s a comparison between the original Mancake skin and the leaked Major Mancake skin:
The decrypted Major Mancake set also has the following items:
- Stacked! spray
- Sweet Clementine pickaxe
- Stacked with Love emoticon
- Waffler backbling
Leakers have reported that the emoticon and the spray do not have a source, which hints at Major Mancake being a promotional cosmetic.
There will be five Crown Clash challenges and loopers will have to play a total of 100 Fall Guys shows to avail of all five free rewards.
Why Major Mancake could be a free Fortnite x Fall Guys reward
Leakers have discovered that the upcoming Fall Guys challenge will have five stages and the Major Mancake set comprises five cosmetics. These skins, sprays, and emoticons do not have Item Shop assets, and the pickaxe appears to have a Promo source.
Having said that, it doesn’t make a lot of sense for none of the Fall Guys x Fortnite rewards to be Fall Guys themed. Mancake is an original Fortnite character and has no relation with Mediatonic’s Battle Royale game.
We’ll make sure to update this article when Epic Games officially reveals Major Mancake and the procedure to get the skin.

As loopers saw some major changes arrive in the v21.10 update last week, Epic announced its July Crew Pack cosmetics which come with the usual combo but this time around, also comes with an exclusive Save The World access to subscribers.

Moreover, players who already own the Battle Pass, will be getting 950 V-Bucks back in addition to the 1000 V-Bucks as a Crew Pack Bonus. For $11.99, this crew pack offers a lot more than its value and is bang for the buck for those who want to purchase it or subscribe to it.
However, loopers can also subscribe to the current Mecha Strike Commander Crew Pack to get both the cosmetics of June’s as well as July’s crew packs right in their lockers, with the V-Bucks and Save The World access the latter promises.
