Epic Games have been the kings of crossover events since the ramping-up of Fortnite two years ago. We’ve seen several Marvel and DC characters come to the game along with others from popular film franchises, TV shows, and even real life.
The past two seasons of Fortnite have focused on adding superheroes to the game. Deadpool and Aquaman have been the two “secret” skins, and Epic released an official Captain America outfit for the Fourth of July.
Epic is back at it again with another Marvel crossover – this time, promoting the new Marvel’s Avengers video game that is set to officially release in September. Those who play during the many closed and open betas will be able to complete HARM challenges to unlock the new Hulk Smasher Pickaxe with Hulkbuster style.
There will be a few different phases of the beta and they’ll all be exclusive to PS4 and Xbox One. PC players will need to log onto a console if they want to receive their free reward. According to the Epic Games website, the beta schedule is as follows:
- August 7-9: PlayStation 4 Pre-Order Beta
- Marvel Avengers PlayStation 4 pre-order players only
- August 14-16: PlayStation 4 Open Beta
- August 14-16: Xbox One Pre-Order Beta
- Marvel Avengers Xbox One pre-order players only
- August 21-23: Open Beta on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One
Marvel’s Avengers costs $60 USD for the full game, although the open beta should be free for console players. Ironically enough, the game appears to be available on Steam but not on the Epic Games store.
We don’t know what these HARM challenges entail and if they have any relation to Fortnite. We’ll update this post when the beta begins and we learn more about the challenges and rewards.
For now, you should make sure that your Epic Games account is attached to your PlayStation or Microsoft account. Then, you’ll need to visit the Square Enix website, create an account, and link it with Epic Games.
PC players and those who don’t want to participate in the Avengers beta will still have access to this unique pickaxe through the in-game store, although you’ll likely have to wait until the beta ends. Let’s get smashing!
Every Batman x Fortnite: Zero Point comic reward revealed
Epic Games has finally revealed all six cosmetic bonuses for those who purchase each issue of Batman/Fortnite: Zero Poin
Epic Games has finally revealed the rest of the exclusive rewards that come with each issue of the Batman x Fortnite: Zero Point comics.
A crossover between Epic Games and DC Comics was announced on April 14. The collaboration would be similar to that of Fortnite and Marvel from Chapter 2 Season 4. A limited series of comics titled Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point would feature characters from both DC and Fortnite as they attempt to solve the mystery behind the Zero Point.
To encourage comic sales, Epic Games also announced that each issue would come with a code for an exclusive cosmetic item. These items would range from a new skin, gliders, backblings, and pickaxes. However, only the first and last rewards were revealed at the start.
Every Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point reward
After the release of issue #2, Epic Games revealed all six of the comic rewards as well as multiple upcoming DC skins. Listed below are the release dates of each issue, the cosmetic that comes with it, and the DC skin that will be sold alongside that issue’s release.
|Issue #||Release Date||Comic Cosmetic||Item Shop Cosmetic|
|1||April 20||Rebirth Harley Quinn Skin||NA|
|2||May 4||Batman Zero Wing Glider||Batman Zero Set|
|3||May 18||Catwoman’s Grappling Claw Pickaxe||Catwoman Zero Set|
|4||June 1||Deathstroke Destroyer Glider||Deathstroke Zero Set|
|5||June 15||Harley Quinn’s Revenge Back Bling||Rebirth Harley Quinn Set|
|6||July 6||Batarang Axe Pickaxe||Armored Batman Zero Set|
Along with these six cosmetics, players who use all six of the codes will earn the Armored Batman skin as a bonus. Each of the cosmetic items that players get from the comics will also be available to purchase in the Item Shop.
Each set will be sold as a bundle, but the items can be purchased individually. If a player redeems a comic code, the cosmetic bundle that the item belongs to will receive a greater discount. Regardless, none of the comic codes will net players with an exclusive cosmetic. All of the cosmetic items will be available to all players one way or another.
May 2021 Fortnite Crew pack includes Save The World and Spotify Premium
The May 2021 Fortnite Crew pack includes the exclusive Deimos skin set, the original Save The World mode, and three months of Spotify Premium.
Fortnite revealed the upcoming May 2021 Crew Pack which comes with a membership exclusive skin, the game’s original Save The World mode, and Spotify Premium.
Epic Games introduced the Fortnite Crew Subscription service during Chapter 2 Season 5. For $11.99 USD a month players would receive an exclusive skin set, 1,000 V-Bucks, and instant access to the current season’s Battle Pass.
As Fortnite has continued the service, it has also sweetened the deal by including memberships to other subscription services like Disney+. For the month of May, subscribers are being offered more for their money than ever before.
The May Fortnite Crew Pack will offer the Deimos skin set which comes with a pickaxe, back bling, and weapon wrap. This also includes Deimos’ green skin variants and a loading screen background. Fortnite’s Deimos is a modernized depiction of the Greek god of dread.
Deimos will also be introduced as a playable character in Fortnite’s original Save The World game mode. Fortnite launched in 2017 with only the Save The World mode but was popularized when the Battle Royale mode launched a few months later. May Fortnite Crew members will also gain permanent access to Save The World.
Subscribers are also being offered three months of Spotify Premium for free. However, this offer is only available to new Spotify Premium customers. Existing or previous customers will have to create a new account if they want to redeem this offer. The offer expires on June 30, 2021 at 8 p.m. EST.
The May Crew membership comes with the normal monthly benefits such as access to the Battle Pass and 1,000 V-Bucks. Epic Games stated that every Thursday during the month of May, Fortnite Crew members would receive special in-game bonuses.
While the weekly benefits remain a mystery, it will be interesting to see what Fortnite has in store for players. The May Fortnite Crew pack is offering the best deal yet and weekly challenges/rewards will only add more value. We’ll keep you posted about the weekly Crew bonuses whenever they’re announced.

How to Get new Justin Jefferson ‘Griddy dance’ NFL Fortnite emote
The Minnesota Vikings’ Justin Jefferson is the first NFL player to be featured in Fortnite with the Icon Series Get Griddy traversal emote.
Justin Jefferson will be the first-ever NFL player to be featured in Fortnite with the addition of his own Icon Series emote and Locker Bundle.
The Minnesota Vikings’ wide receiver Justin Jefferson is known for celebrating touchdowns with the iconic Griddy Dance. Fortnite players will be able to style on their opponents with the official emote. Fortnite has also taken this crossover one step further by giving Jefferson his own Locker Bundle.
Fortnite has a ton of emotes inspired by viral videos or online trends. There are also various emotes made in collaboration with internet personalities, movies, and other video games. However, specific athletic superstars are just now starting to be featured in Fortnite.
How to get Fortnite Justin Jefferson Griddy Dance emote
With the addition of pro footballer Neymar Jr., sports icons are finding their place in Fortnite. Now, American football player Justin Jefferson follows Neymar’s lead by blazing a trail for other athletes.
Fortnite announced Jefferson’s crossover emote alongside his official Locker Bundle, which comes with the emote. The bundle also includes the Hit Man outfit and back bling, Weathered Gold pickaxe, Arcade Kid wrap, and Signature Shuffle emote. The bundle and emote will land in Fortnite’s Item Shop on April 28 ahead of the NFL Draft.
The Get Griddy Fortnite emote is a traversal emote, meaning players will be able to move just like Justin Jefferson when he’s cruising into the end zone. It also features the song Right Foot Creep by YoungBoy Never Broke Again.
Despite this crossover featuring Justin Jefferson, Fortnite does note in an official release that the Griddy Dance was created in 2017 by Allen “Griddy” Davis, a former high school football player. Some fans are disappointed that long-time Fortnite fan and NFL wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster wasn’t chosen to be featured.
Regardless, the Justin Jefferson Get Griddy emote will be a very sporty addition to any player’s locker. Adding athletic superstars to Fortnite’s massive roster of crossovers pushes the game one step closer to becoming Donald Mustard’s metaverse.
