Spider-Man’s arch-nemesis Green Goblin is making his way to The Island. Here show you can get this villainous skin.

One of the most exciting crossovers in Fortnite history is the Spider-Man skins and web shooter. Fortnite has been littered with Marvel crossovers in the past, but this one is a fan favorite.

And in classic Fortnite fashion, just one skin from the Spider-Man series was not going to be enough. Outside of the MCU Spider-Man and the Zendaya MJ skins, Fortnite is also adding the Green Goblin.

As for how you get the Green Goblin, that’s going to cost players some money. Yes, Green Goblin will be available in the Item Shop.

Like other Marvel skins, Green Goblin will likely cost the player 1,500 V-Bucks. He will probably come with a rideable glider and pickaxe.

Timothee Chalamet and Zendaya are coming to Fortnite as their characters from the new Sci-fi action flick Dune.

Fortnite has become known for its numerous crossovers. Ranging from all-out seasons to small easter eggs, it’s become the norm for popular media to be featured in Fortnite.

And the source materials notoriety doesn’t limit its crossover potential with Fortnite. Epic Games has hosted industry titans such as Marvel, as well as novels like the Mistborn series.

Fortnite has now made it pretty common to feature characters in upcoming films. This includes the new sci-fi movie Dune. Players will soon be able to play as Timothée Chalamet and Zendaya in Fortnite.

How to get Timothée Chalamet and Zendaya Dune skins

Of course, players won’t be playing as Timothée Chalamet and Zendaya the actors. Instead, they will be playing as their characters in Dune. However, Epic Games modeled the skins to look like the actors.

The Zendaya and Timothée Chalamet Dune skins will appear in the Fortnite Item Shop sometime this week. Dune releases in theaters on October 22, and Fortnite usually releases crossover skins alongside the movie.

According to HYPEX, the Dune cosmetics will be sold in two bundles. The first bundle includes both skins and a loading screen. The second bundle includes all do the pickaxes, emotes, and a glider.

In addition to the Timothée Chalamet and Zendaya Fortnite skins, Fortnite is releasing two different harvesting tools. The Ornithopter glider and Sand Walk emote are also part of the set. Players can purchase each item individually or as part of a discounted bundle.

It’s hard to say how long the skins will be in the Item Shop. Some crossover skins stay in the shop a week, while others are around for a few days. It’s also impossible to tell when the skins will return.

Players should take the opportunity while they can to purchase the skins. It may be the only chance to play as Timothée Chalamet and Zendaya in Fortnite. For more Fortnite, check out how to refund items you purchased with V-Bucks, and stay tuned for more news and guides.

The top 10 sweatiest cosmetics in Fortnite (2021)

Fortnite sweats love to use a particular set of cosmetics for aesthetic or advantage. Here are the top 10 sweatiest cosmetics in Fortnite.

Published

fortnite sweatiest skins

Here are the top 10 sweatiest cosmetics in Fortnite. If you see a player wearing any of these, it might be best to avoid them at all costs.

Last year, we completed a list of the top-ten sweatiest skins in the game. Many of those skins have retained their “sweaty” status, but we’ve seen a lot of Item Shop updates since then.

As most players know, a Fortnite sweat isn’t only distinguishable by their skin. Their pickaxe and back bling also tell a story, which is why we’re opening this list to include additional sweaty Fortnite cosmetics.

As we said, a lot of the skins from last year are still drenched in sweat, and you’ll see a lot of them on this list. However, as players evolve and more skins are released, we will continue to update this list with the sweatiest of skins. Here are the top 10 sweatiest cosmetics in Fortnite.

Recon Expert

In our first article, we listed the “OG Skins” as some of the sweatiest cosmetics in Fortnite. Let’s be real. A lot of the sweatiest players today weren’t playing when Renegade Raider and Black Knight were available. However, the “recent” release of a certain OG Skin has a lot of sweaty players pretending they were playing in 2017.

The Recon Expert was a rare skin, but new sweats were given the opportunity to purchase it after its re-release. Unlike Ghoul Trooper or Skull Trooper, OG owners weren’t given an exclusive style. Now, it’s impossible to discern an OG sweat from a wannabe.

Pink Ghoul Trooper

This is an OG skin that has stood the test of time for many reasons. While original owners of the Skull Trooper and Ghoul Trooper were given exclusive styles, the Pink Ghoul Trooper is the only skin sweaty players still use.

For one, it proves that they were around during the early days of Fortnite. And two, it’s a female skin which many pro players prefer. It isn’t used in competitive play because of its vibrant colors, but sweaty players will show their dominance wearing the Pink Ghoul Trooper in Pubs.

Banner Brigade set

Banner Brigade may have overtaken the Soccer skins in terms of the sweatiest set in Fortnite. They offer substantial value for their price – only 800 V-Bucks with the ability to customize the style – but seem to be dominated by those at the top level.

We aren’t seeing as many Banner Brigade skins as we were last year, but the two back bling options are still very common. It’s easy to understand why. These are the only cosmetics that make your Banner mean something, and the customization options make them a good value.

Soccer Skins

Speaking of Soccer Skins, you didn’t really think they wouldn’t be on the list did you? These are iconic skins for sweaty players. Mainly younger players who had to coax their parents into buying them V-Bucks so they could buy their own customizable skin.

They aren’t nearly as popular now as many other skins on this list. That being said, you know you’re in for a fight if you see one. A sweat who continues to wear their soccer skin probably spends more time in creative courses than the actual game, and they are ready to taste blood.

Studded Axe

The Studded Axe is one of the sweatiest cosmetics in Fortnite due to its competitive advantage. This bad boy barely makes a sound when it’s harvesting mats, and its sleek design makes it harder to see.

It’s also in the Item Shop quite frequently, so wannabe pro-players have the opportunity to purchase it every month or so. There are other axes that are just as quiet but harder to obtain. That’s why you’ll run into a lot of sweaty players running the Studded Axe

Star Wand

Speaking of sweaty harvesting tools, the Star Wand is by far the sweatiest pickaxe in Fortnite. Why? We have no idea. A handful of pros use it. It makes minimal noise when swung. But it isn’t all that rare.

However, its sweatiness is undeniable. It’s a well-known meme in the Fortnite community that the Star Wand is used exclusively by sweats. Maybe players are hoping that the wand will be bugged again to deal 75 damage per swing. That likely won’t happen, but that won’t stop sweaty players from hoping

Sparkplug

Sparkplug, like a lot of skins on this list, is the skin of a Creative Warrior. It’s not as common as some of the others on the list, but it’s sweaty, nonetheless.

In my experience, a Sparkplug skin is often the real deal. You have a lot of pretenders wearing Soccer skins and Star Wands, but Sparkplug skins are killers; more often than not.

Aura

Aura was one of those skins that you knew would be ‘sweaty,’ and it didn’t disappoint. For some reason, Aura became the primary skin of several pro-Fortnite players and sweats across the world.

Why is this skin so sweaty? It’s hard to tell. All we know is that an Aura either means business or thinks that they’re better than they are.

Scarlet Commander

A new competitor for sweatiest skin in Fortnite has entered the chat, and their name is the Scarlet Commander. Go ahead and open Twitch right now or during a tournament. I guarantee one of the top Fortnite streamers is currently using this skin.

And it’s pretty obvious why. Since a certain skin that we will talk about next has been banned from comp, players are looking for a new skin that will give them an advantage. The Scarlet Commander is almost completely black with a few dark red accents and minimally exposed flesh. In dark areas and at night, Scarlet Commander is near invisible.

Superhero Skins

Against all odds, the superhero skins have become the sweatiest skins in the game. Even the male variants are usually worn by skilled players, which is rare.

The reason these skins were the sweatiest was because of the all-black and all-white styles. The superhero skins have been banned altogether in competitive play, but they still run rampant in pubs.

Before the ban, nearly every player in a competitive tourney was sporting one of these skins. It was all-black which was banned last year. After that ban, players switched to all-white. And now they aren’t allowed in comp play at all.

So, there you have it: the ten sweatiest cosmetics in Fortnite. It will be interesting to see which skins, pickaxes, back bling, and even gliders take over the throne over the course of the next year.

We’re sure that we missed a few cosmetics, as we only limited our list to ten. Let us know what we skipped on Twitter @FortniteINTEL.
