Batman skins in Fortnite

The Batman x Fortnite comic book run has tied in the DC Universe with the battle royale, and players can get their hands on some exclusive DC-themed skins, including Batman himself.

Epic Games have introduced various Fortnite crossovers with notable franchises like Terminator, as well as Rick and Morty. Season 7 even brought in some new DC character cosmetics like the Superman skin.

The Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point comic book crossover brought some cool Batman cosmetics to the game. Purchasing each book in the series will grant you special items like character skins.

Here’s how you can get them for yourself.

Issue #1 : Rebirth Harley Quinn Outfit

Rebirth Harley Quinn is the first DC outfit that becomes available to you after purchasing the Batman/Fortnite comic. It will be given as a prize to players who get their hands on Issue 1.

As you can gather from the name, this outfit is based on Harley’s appearance during the DC Rebirth run in the comics. She wears a red and black jacket, top, and shorts, alongside red and blue pigtails.

Even if you decide not to pick up the comic book for yourself, you’ll still be able to get your hands on this skin from the Fortnite Item Shop.

Issue #2: Batman’s Zero Wing Glider

Purchasing the second Issue of Batman x Fortnite: Zero Point will grant you a special code. This will allow you to get your hands on a brand new glider that’s themed after the world’s greatest detective.

At first, an image of the glider was uploaded to the official DC website but was immediately taken down. It was then finally released on May 4 along with the Batman Zero Outfit.

Issue #3: Catwoman’s Grappling Claw Pickaxe

Issue 3 of the Batman x Fortnite crossover brought Catwoman’s Grappling Claw to the Battle Royale on May 18. This item is a Harvesting Tool that you can use to collect materials from around Fortnite Island.

Match this item with the Catwoman skin from the Item Shop, and you’ll get to show off your skills as a sneaky cat-burglar.

Issue #4: Deathstroke’s Destroyer Glider

Issue 4 added another Glider on June 1. Players who grab this chapter will receive the Deathstroke Destroyer Glider as a reward.

It’s shaped like a triangle, with grey and orange accents to complete its design. The color scheme makes the Glider resemble Deathstroke’s costume.

Issue #5: Harley Quinn’s Revenge Back Bling

A new Back Bling is the reward for players that purchase Issue #5. This released on June 15, and the Revenge Back Bling became available along with the Rebirth Harley Quinn Outfit.

It has a countdown timer that ends with the Back Bling exploding in confetti. This is closely based on one of Harley’s actual gag weapons.

Issue #6: Batarang Axe Harvesting Tool

The final issue of the Batman x Fortnite crossover released on July 6. Players that purchase this issue will be able to redeem an exclusive code and receive another unique Harvesting Tool.

As the name implies, the Batarang Axe Harvesting Tool is a pickaxe with a Batarang at the end. Redeeming the code will also grant access to an exclusive Batman skin.

Bonus Armored Batman Zero Outfit

The Armored Zero Outfit for Batman can be seen in issue 2 of the Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point comic. If you want this item, you’ll have to purchase all six issues of the crossover book.

We got our first look at the suit in the comic’s official trailer, and it boasts a very different design from the traditional Batman look. As the name implies, the new Outfit features more armor with a sleeveless survival aesthetic.

That covers all the Fortnite Batman cosmetics that you can unlock. Also, check out when Fortnite Season 8 is expected to start.

Armored Walls in Fortnite Season 8

Fortnite Season 8 has included a brand-new Trap item to the game, with Armored Walls making your structures much more powerful. Here’s how to find and use this new defensive item.

Following the news that Fortnite will be crossing over with designer fashion house Balenciaga, Epic Games has brought even more content with the September 21 hotfix. In this small update, they’ve announced a Fourth Birthday event, given players the chance to unvault an item, and added a new Trap.

The Armored Walls Trap covers builds in thick metal plating, giving “any building piece a whole bunch more HP.”

Here’s how to find and use this powerful new item.

Armored Walls Trap in Fortnite Season 8

Creating a safe area to hold down is one of the most important strategies to winning a game of Fortnite. Maintaining the high ground and having solid cover is ever-important and now your defense can now be even stronger thanks to the new Armored Walls Trap.

These Armored Walls have arrived in Fortnite Battle Royale matches with the September 21 update. In the accompanying announcement, Epic Games revealed that Armored Walls can be found in Supply Boxes and on the ground. So, it shouldn’t be too difficult to find them, you just need to loot around.

How to use Armored Walls in Fortnite

Armored Walls are Uncommon Traps, so will go into the Trap inventory slot. Like placing the old Damage Traps or Bouncers, you just need to approach one of your own structures with Armor Plates in your inventory and press your Trap keybind, e.g T.

The wall will now become a thick metal structure with 2,500 HP, so the enemies will have an extremely hard time breaking through. However, it works both ways, so be careful you don’t box yourself in!

Here’s a quick summary:

  1. Build or approach one of your walls in Fortnite
  2. Have the Armored Walls trap at the ready
  3. Press your Trap button to apply it to the surface

And that’s how you can find and use Armored Walls in Fortnite Season 8! For more guides, check out how to level up the Fortnite Season 8 Battle Pass fast.

Fortnite birthday cake and present

It’s hard to believe that it’s been four years since Fortnite began taking over the gaming world, but it’s true. Once again, Epic is celebrating in style with a special in-game Fourth Fortnite Birthday event. We’ve got the lowdown right here.

Fortnite Season 8 is a throwback in many ways, mainly thanks to the return of Kevin and his fellow alien Cubes. That’s why it’s fitting that the new season coincides with the anniversary of the battle royale’s release.

Fortnite has evolved a lot in the last four years, popularising features like the Battle Pass along the way.

So, to celebrate, Epic is launching a Fourth Fortnite Birthday event for players to dive into, packed with plenty of Quests and rewards.

This special Fortnite Birthday event will kick off on September 24, 2021, at 6 AM PT / 9 AM ET / 2 PM BST, coming via an update that will be available to download on the day.

Fittingly, the Fortnite Birthday event festivities will last for four days, ending on September 28, 2021. The game’s official birthday is in the middle of the event on September 26.

Throughout the Fortnite Birthday event, players will be able to spot birthday cakes scattered around the island. Eating these baked goods will offer valuable health and shield boosts.

Birthday presents will also be returning from last year. These can be thrown onto the ground and contain rare loot.

Fourth Fortnite Birthday Quests & rewards

As part of the celebrations, players will have the chance to complete themed Quests to earn birthday rewards and XP.

These will also go live when the event starts, on September 24, 2021, at 6 AM PT / 9 AM ET / 2 PM BST.

Among the rewards will be the “4 Me???” Back Bling, “Hooplah Hammer Pickaxe, and “4? Score!” Emoticon.

Epic is yet to confirm what the birthday-themed Quests will entail, but be sure to check back here for the latest updates.
