Starter packs have drastically evolved over the course of Fortnite. We started with the bot-friendly Rogue and Wingman starter packs before moving into the ‘sweaty’ category with Laguna and, most recently, Iris.
Fortnite data miners have found the next starter pack in the game files. This one will be called ‘Yellow Jacket’ and will feature a skin, pickaxe, and 600 V-Bucks. We will likely see a back bling for the skin as well.
We can’t be 100% sure without an official confirmation, but it’s safe to assume that the pack will cost $5 USD. You’ll be getting more than your money’s worth of V-Bucks along with a new skin.
The skin, itself, looks to become a popular one. The Pickaxe might not be as attractive as Iris’ pickaxe, but it will still be a staple of bargain-hunting ‘sweaty’ players.
We don’t have any news of when the Yellow Jacket set will come to the Item Shop, but it could be as early as May 6 – when the Star Wars pack leaves, once again.
Iris will likely leave the shop when Yellow Jacket enters, so make sure you pick her up if you’re interested. This skin has been one of the more common sights since its release, early in Season 2.
How to get the Fortnite soccer player skins
Fortnite’s soccer player skins are some of the most sought-after skins in the game, and here is how players can get them.
One of the most sought-after skins in Fortnite is also one that players relate to being sweaty. Regardless, here is how to get the Fortnite soccer player skins.
The soccer skins, or football skins for EU players, were first introduced in Chapter 1 Season 4. These skins quickly became some of the most used skins because of how customizable they are. They were the first skins that players could change the color and number to make it more personal.
Since their release, new soccer skins have been released. Fortnite has also released other sports-related skins such as the NBA and NFL skins. However, the soccer skins still remain the sweatiest of the sports skins. Here is how you can get the Fortnite soccer player skins and join the ranks of the sweats.
Getting the Fortnite soccer player skins
The soccer player skins rotate in and out of the shop almost every season. However, there’s no way to know beforehand when exactly the skins will return. They have generally cycled through the Item Shop at least two or three times a year. Players should have V-Bucks ready just in case they make a surprise appearance.
To get the soccer skins, players have to purchase them from the Item Shop. There are eight different models to choose from, and each one costs 1,200 V-Bucks. However, they may also be sold in a discounted bundle. Most players who use these skins will opt for female character models because of their lower profile.
Each skin can has 33 different customization options, each option representing another soccer/football club. Players can also change the color of their uniforms and the number on their jerseys. For 1,200 V-Bucks, these are the cheapest customizable skins in Fortnite.
Soccer skins are still used by professional Fortnite players today, but most pros opt for different customizable skins. The Boundless Superhero set is used quite frequently because of its mono-colored options. However, Boundless skins cost 2,000 V-Bucks making them much more expensive than soccer skins.
How to get Fortnite NBA The Crossover basketball skins
Fortnite and the NBA have teamed up to bring customizable basketball skins to players. Here’s how to get the Fortnite NBA basketball skins.
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.
How to get all seven Fortnite x Batman Zero Point cosmetics
The Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point cosmetics are easier to get than ever now that a hardcover collection can be preordered.
The Fortnite x Batman Zero Point cosmetics are highly sought after items that can only be obtained using special codes. These codes come with each issue of the Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point comics, but they can be difficult to get ahold of.
On April 14, 2021, Epic Games announced another crossover comic series featuring Fortnite characters, but this time it was with DC. Similar to the Season 4 crossover with Marvel, Fortnite Season 6 features a superhero crossover with DC’s Batman.
In the first issue was released on April 20 and introduced readers to Batman’s newest storyline. Trapped in the same loop as Fortnite’s inhabitants, Batman is forced to set up a temporary Bat Cave. However, Batman will have to solve the mystery of the Zero Point while time resets itself every 22 minutes.
How to get Batman Zero Point cosmetics
Epic Games revealed that every physical issue would come with a special code that unlocks an exclusive item in Fortnite. While the crossover storyline is a cool addition to the game, most players will be more interested in getting the cosmetics.
The other issues are scheduled to release on May 4, May 18, June 1, June 15, and July 6. Each issue will come with a code, and players who redeem all six codes will get a bonus cosmetic. The seventh being the Armored Batman skin. However, there is an easier way to get the codes rather than hunting for each individual issue.
A hardcover edition that includes every issue of the Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point series is for sale on Amazon. The downside is that it won’t release until September 7. While that may be two months after the final issue of the series releases, the hardcover comes with a single code that will unlock all seven DC-themed cosmetics.
The hardcover is $15.92 USD and is currently up for preorder. This also makes it much cheaper than buying all six issues individually. The cosmetic codes can also be obtained digitally by those who have a DC Universe Infinite subscription. Yet, that will still cost more than purchasing the hardcover book.
