The time that many players have been waiting for is finally nearing: a Venom skin in Fortnite. After weeks of playing with Venom’s Superpower in the Marvel-themed LTMs, we’re finally set to unlock the skin through the Item Shop or Marvel Knockout Super Series.
For those who don’t know, the Marvel Knockout Super Series is a weekly tournament series that uses the Marvel Knockout format. Winners of each stage of the tournament will qualify for the final event and will have a chance to earn real money for their placements.
The first stage of the tournament only offers skins as a reward, however, which is enough for a lot of players to compete. On November 16, Epic released a teaser for their next tournament: The Venom Cup.
We don’t have an official date at the time of writing, but common sense and past experience dictate that the Venom Cup will take place on Wednesday, November 18. We’re also expecting a patch this week, which should bring a leaked version of the Venom skin along with it.
You’ll need to place high enough within your region to earn the Venom skin. It’s a tough mark to hit, as only 800 players in Europe will earn the skin for free and only 700 players in North America can unlock it.
Here’s a breakdown of the scoring system and placement threshold for each region of the Venom Cup.
- 1st: 25 points
- 2nd: 10 points
- 3rd-4th: 5 points
- 5th-8th: 3 points
- 9th-16th: 1 point
Required Placement for free Venom skin
- Europe: 1st – 1,200th
- NA-East: 1st – 750th
- NA-West: 1st – 300th
- Brazil: 1st – 300th
- Asia: 1st – 150th
- Oceana: 1st – 150th
- Middle East: 1st – 150th
We don’t know what other cosmetics will come along with the Venom bundle, but fans are expecting a unique pickaxe that morphs into Venom’s arm. We can only hope that this one is available for use with other skins and isn’t locked to Venom like other cosmetics in the game.

Don’t worry if you’re eager to unlock Venom but don’t want to compete in the Venom Cup. He’ll be hitting the Item Shop after the tournament ends, just like the rest of the Marvel skins. You can expect to see him as early as this weekend.
How to get exclusive Harley Quinn & Armored Batman skins in Fortnite
The Batman Fortnite comic series release date has been announced, with an exclusive skin in each issue, the first being Rebirth Harley Quinn.
The Fortnite X Batman comic series has officially been announced, offering players a chance to earn limited-edition skins by purchasing the comics.
The Batman X Fortnite comic series has been teased for a while, with multiple releases bringing clarity to both the comic and the future of the map. So far, promotional material for the comic has led fans to speculate that we’ll see a Batcave POI in Fortnite along with a Deathstroke skin.
On April 14, Epic and DC finally announced that the comic series would begin releasing on April 20. The following four issues will be released twice a month in May and June, culminating in the final issue on July 6.
This limited-edition series will only be available for a short time and brings some in-game rewards along with it.
In the Epic Games announcement blog post, the team announced that, “Each print issue of Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point will include a redeemable code for bonus DC-themed Fortnite digital items inspired by the events in the comic.”
The first of these exclusive rewards will be the Rebirth Harley Quinn Outfit – a rework of the skin that many of us already have in our lockers. A lot of Fortnite players were asking for a re-release of this skin, and are now getting a new version, instead.
We got a look at an additional Batman X Fortnite skin in the trailer for the comics. Near the final frame, you can see an armored Batman skin leap into the air. This will, reportedly, be a reward for purchasing the sixth issue of the Batman Fortnite comic.
We don’t have any official information on when any of the other skins will be coming to the game, but we’ll update this article when we learn more.
Each issue will come with a cosmetic reward, which could be where the rumored Deathstroke skin comes in. All signs point to these cosmetics being exclusive to players who purchase the DC comics, so we don’t expect to see them in the Item Shop.
We’ll update this post when Epic announce the exclusive skin for future issues of the Batman X Fortnite comic. Until then, follow us on Twitter so you never miss out on any of the latest Fortnite news.

Fortnite X Horizon Zero Dawn skin & LTM coming soon
A new Fortnite leak reveals that Aloy from Horizon Zero Dawn will be coming to Fortnite Season 6. Here’s how to get the skin for free.
Fortnite is teaming up with Sony once again to bring another fan-favorite character to Fortnite: Aloy from Horizon Zero Dawn.
Epic Games have been turning up the crossovers for the past few seasons. They began focusing on crossovers in Season 4 with Marvel, then continued to expand the universe in Season 5. Now, we’re into Season 6, and nothing seems to be slowing down.
In the v16.20 patch, data miners found the next character that will be added to the Fortnite world: Aloy from Horizon Zero Dawn.
How to get the Aloy skin for free
Aloy will be available on all platforms when she comes to the Fortnite Item Shop, just as Master Chief and Kratos were available to everyone. PS4 and PS5 players will have a chance to earn the skin for free, however.
Sony and Epic are hosting an exclusive Aloy Cup for PlayStation players, with the top-performers earning the Aloy and Horizon Zero Dawn skin bundle for free. The tournament will take place on April 14. Aloy will likely come to the Item Shop soon after the tournament.
Team Up! Aloy & Lara LTM
Aloy will be teaming up with Lara Croft for an LTM when she enters the game. It will be a duos mode, and will mostly focus on the Bow and Dual Wield Pistols.

One player will be Aloy and the other will be Lara Croft. Naturally, Aloy will have a Primal Bow and Lara will have two pistols. This event will begin on April 16 and will run through April 18.
We’ll keep you posted if any other details come out about this crossover. Until then, make sure to follow us on Twitter, @FortniteINTEL.

As always, players need to complete Epic’s 2FA to compete in the event.
