Fortnite Season 5 is introducing a new way to earn the next crossover skin. Here’s how to get the Flash skin bundle for free.
Epic’s upcoming bounty hunter is another crossover with the DC universe. This time, we’ll be getting Barry Allen AKA The Flash. The new Outfit, Back Bling, Pickaxe, and Emote will hit the Item Shop on February 13 at 7 PM EST.
Fortnite players have a chance to get the skin for free, however, by competing in the Flash Cup on February 10. Here’s everything you need to know about that event.
The Fortnite Flash Cup
The Flash Cup is a Duos tournament that gives players three hours or 10 matches to score as many points as they can. The top teams in each region will earn the Flash Outfit and Speed Force Back Bling for their efforts.
The number of winning players will depend on your region. Here’s a breakdown of where you need to place in the Flash Cup to earn Barry Allen and his Back Bling:
- Europe: 1st – 3,500th
- NA-East: 1st – 1,750th
- NA-West: 1st – 500th
- Brazil: 1st – 500th
- Asia: 1st – 250th
- Oceania: 1st – 250th
- Middle East: 1st – 250th
This tournament effectively doubles the winners from the Hearts Wild Cup, which means you’ll have a good chance of placing high enough to get a free skin. It’s worth a try if you’re a consistent competitive Fortnite player.
We’ll probably see another one or two tournament skins offered to players before Season 5 concludes, so stay tuned for more information on that front. Follow us on Twitter @FortniteINTEL so you never miss out on the latest Fortnite news.

On March 1, Epic Games and Lazarbeam announced that they Australian YouTube star would be the next creator to be included in the Fortnite Icon Series with a new skin bundle.
The Fortnite Icon Series gives creators a way to become immortalized in one of their favorite video games: Fortnite. This began with one of the pioneers of Fortnite, Ninja, and has since expanded to include Loserfruit, Lachlan, and TheGrefg.
It looks like popular Australian YouTuber and streamer, Lannan “Lazarbeam” Eacott will be the next creator featured in the series. He first teased the announcement with a scheduled video, then showcased his skin at 5:00 PM EST on March 1.
Lazarbeam Fortnite skin release date
Lazarbeam’s Fortnite Icon Series skin should hit the Item Shop on March 4. He also mentioned some giveaways, which could relate to his YouTube channel or a limited-time tournament, similar to TheGrefg’s Floor is Lava event.
The bundle will come with a skin, and additional variant, the Gingerbread construction worker Back Bling, a sledgehammer pickaxe and an emote that may or may not be built into the outfit.
We’ll update you when we get closer to the release date of Lazarbeam’s Fortnite skin. We should see some datamined images of the skin in the next Fortnite patch, so stay tuned for that as well.

New Fortnite portal points to Xenomorph from Alien
A new portal has opened in Fortnite, suggesting that Xenomorph from Alien will be the next hunter coming to Season 5.
The Fortnite Season 5 crossovers continue to roll in as a new portal has appeared on the map. A glimpse at the inside of the portal reveals an upcoming crossover with the Alien franchise.
This Fortnite season has been the most crossover-filled in the history of Fortnite. We’ve seen characters from Terminator, God of War, Halo, Predator, Street Fighter, and many other franchises come to the Fortnite Item Shop.
Recently, fans saw some leaks that led them to believe that Peter Griffin from Family Guy could be the next crossover skin. He still might be on his way, but we have someone else coming ahead of him: Xenomorph from the Alien franchise.
There’s still hope for Peter Griffin, but this could be the XL skin that data miners told us about. Xenomorph will likely resemble The Devourer skin, which is one of the bigger skins in the game.
These portals usually come to Fortnite a day or so before the skin comes to the Item Shop. We expect to see the Street Fighter skins leave the shop on February 25, ushering in a new trailer and skin set for the Alien Crossover.
Of course, the addition of Alien brings the Alien vs. Predator theme to Fortnite as well. It will be interesting to see if Epic do anything neat with the skin, like add him to the game as a boss. We’ll keep you posted when we learn more about the release date.
March 2021 Fortnite Crew membership pack revealed
The Crew pack for March 2021 and Fortnite Season 6 has been revealed, featuring the new Llambro skin and accompanying set.
The next Fortnite Crew membership pack has been revealed for March 2021, featuring the Llambro skin and accompanying cosmetic set.
In 2021, Epic introduced the Fortnite Crew subscription. This monthly pack gives players an exclusive cosmetic set, 1,000 V-Bucks, and access to the current Battle Pass for $11.99.
Since then, we’ve seen four skin packs enter the game, with a fifth on the way. Epic have confirmed leaks that point to the Llambro Outfit, Up North Back Bling, Puffcorn Pick Pickaxe, and The Llegend Wrap coming to the game in March 2021.
Since this pack will coincide with the start of Fortnite Season 6, players who subscribe to March’s Crew subscription will also receive access to the Battle Pass; making it an excellent deal for those who want the skin and don’t have enough V-Bucks for the Battle Pass.
If you subscribe now, you can also gain access to February’s skin pack, which features Vi. You can buy the subscription now, wait until the new season, and cancel it if you want to go that route. Doing this would grant you two skin sets, 1,000 V-Bucks, and the next Battle Pass for only $11.99.
There are only a few weeks left in Fortnite Season 5, and we’re excited to see what the next season will bring. Until then, you can prepare yourself by finishing the Battle Pass with the weekly challenges and grabbing the next Fortnite Crew Subscription.
We’ll be covering the new Fortnite season as soon as we hear any news, so make sure to follow us on Twitter @FortniteINTEL so you never miss out on any of the latest Fortnite updates.
