This is your ultimate guide on how to get the new Spider-Man skins in Fortnite.
When Did Fortnite Add the Spider-Man and MJ No Way Home Skins?
On December 16, 2021, Fortnite published a press release detailing its Winterfest 2021 event and the beginning of Season 3 of its in-game narrative. This is what the press release revealed, among other things:
With most of the Island a winter wonderland to kick off Chapter 3, there are few better times for the next Winterfest. Running from Dec. 16, 2021, at 9 AM ET to Jan. 6, 2022, at 9 AM ET, Sgt. Winter will give players 14 Presents — including two Outfits — over the course of Winterfest 2021! 🎁 There’s a third gift Outfit you can get another way too.
If you’re a new player who just joined with Chapter 3, this is the perfect opportunity to start your Fortnite journey with lots of Locker items. And if you’re a longtime player, this is the perfect opportunity to add to your collection. But the gifts are only one part of the festivities. Here’s everything the Sergeant has in store for Winterfest 2021, including a… “cozy” welcome to Spider-Man and MJ of the upcoming Spider-Man: No Way Home movie.
As you can see, the initial press release, which revealed a lot more about some in-game events, revealed the release of the No Way Home versions of Spider-Man and MJ as playable skins in Season 3. Not long after, a promotional Tweet offered more details about the specific release:
And with this, all was set for the skins’ release. In case you wanted to know, the Spider-Man: No Way Home bundle will go live in Fortnite’s Item Shop on December 16 at 4 PM PT / 7 PM ET / 12 AM GMT (December 17).
Why Did Fortnite Add Another Spider-Man Skin?
Well, the addition of this particular Spider-Man skin coincides with the beginning of a new narrative chapter in the Fortnite game, but why the developers opted for a specific Spider-Man skin when they already had one? Well, it coincided with the release of Spider-Man: No Way Home, Tom Holland’s third MCU/Sony solo movie.
The movie was projected to be a massive hit and this inclusion was certainly going to be a big marketing boost, since Fortnite is one of the biggest and most popular games today.
That is why Fortnite opted for a new Spider-Man skin.
How to Get the Spider-Man No Way Home Skin in Fortnite?
Now, the new Spider-Man bundle is a premium bundle. The developers have revealed that the bundle will be available for an in-game purchase. The exact price was not revealed, but knowing how this worked with earlier releases, we assume that the price will be somewhere between 1,500 and 2,500 V-Bucks, probably not lower than 1,800 V-Bucks, but one can be hopeful, right?
So, what will the bundle contain, anyway? As revealed by Twitter user @iFireMonkey, the bundle will contain more than just the two skins:
Now, as it seems, you’ll be getting some additional items along with the two skins and they are:
- Brooklyn Bookbag – Back Bling
- Spider-Man Icon – Backbling
- No Way Homerun Hitter – Harvesting Tool
The players will probably be able to buy some of these items separately, but as you know well, it’s always cheaper when you actually buy the whole bundle. So, in order to get it, just simply open your account, enter the in-game Item Shop, find the bundle and simply buy it with the V-Bucks you have.
We still don’t know how useful the whole thing is going to be in-game and how it will help you advance, but we’re hoping that it’s not just a simple marketing element to help boost the popularity of the No Way Home movie.
How to Get the MJ sSkin in Fortnite?
As far as the MJ skin is concerned, it will be available the same way as the Spider-Man skin. So, when the items become available in the Item Shop in the Fortnite game, you simply enter them and buy them.
We don’t know whether the MJ skin is going to be available as a separate item or just as part of the bundle, so you’ll have to see that for yourselves once the items actually arrive in the shop.
Again, we really don’t know how useful the MJ skin is going to be in-game and how it will help you advance your game and win against other players, but we’re hoping that it’s not just a simple marketing element to help boost the popularity of the No Way Home movie and that both skins, as well as the items, will have some role in the game.
