Harley Quinn is now available in Fortnite as a skin and even has a set of challenges that can unlock an extra style, but beware of a bug that could steal your V-Bucks.

To coincide with the new film, Birds of Prey, Warner Bros and Epic Games have teamed up once again to bring an exclusive skin into Fortnite.

On February 6, Harley Quinn hit the item shop and came with a set of challenges for players to unlock her alternate style. Essentially, it could end up being two skins for the price of one.

However, several players are reporting bugs with these challenges. Upon completing them and unlocking the style, they discovered they could actually purchase the challenge bundle again from the store.

For the price of 400 V-Bucks, they’d presumably get the same set of challenges to complete which could be used to earn experience for their profile, perhaps as a way to get some extra XP before the season wraps up.

However, nothing actually happens when they purchase the bundle, but instead, the V-Bucks are lost to the void.

While 400 V-Bucks isn’t too much in the grand scheme of things, it’s disappointing to see them go to waste. Players immediately went to Reddit and explained the bug in an effort to warn others from making the same mistake.

Redditor CyberYeet-YT pointed out that the bundle will glitch upon completion and re-enter the shop for purchase again. Purchasing this bundle will take the currency but not reward you with another set of challenges.

If you complete Harley’s challenges, the bundle glitches and resells them for 400 Vbucks. It does take the vbucks,meaning you can lose them. Beware. from FortNiteBR

What are the Harley Quinn challenges?

The Harley Quinn skin will be in the item shop until February 17, so players have plenty of time to decide if it’s worth picking up. Upon purchase, you’ll discover the Always Fantabulous Harley skin style will be locked behind challenges.

To unlock it, players will be required to complete these objectives:

  • Place top 30, 20 and 10 in Solos, Duos or Squads (1)
  • Hit weak points (100)
  • Deal damage with pickaxes to opponents (100)

Once this is done, both styles will be yours. Just make sure you don’t purchase the bundle again in the shop!

How to return your Fortnite NFL skin without using a refund token

After a recent update introducing a change to Fortnite’s NFL skins, Epic Games is giving players the chance to return them for a limited time, and we have all the info on how to do so.

Fortnite’s v14.30 update brought a change to the game’s NFL skins, removing the name and logo for the team formerly known as the Washington Redskins.

After years of public backlash, the team removed their nickname and are now officially called the “Washington Football Team” while they work on getting a new trademark.

In-game, the team has been removed from the available options in their line of NFL skins. Now, when you visit the customization tab, Washington will be the last option with no logo. With this change, Epic is allowing players to return their purchase for a limited time – without using a refund token.

Washington’s NFL Fortnite skin will be this instead.

But this exchange isn’t as straightforward as you might think, and has led to some confusion amongst players trying to figure out how to do it.

Players who still have refund tokens should be able to navigate to the proper tab by going to Settings > Profile (far right) > Lifetime Return Requests > Submit a Request. There, you should see the NFL outfit listed as one of the items eligible for returns.

But, if you’ve already used all of your refund tokens, the “Submit a Request” Button won’t’ be active. Another problem you may run into is that your game didn’t update right away, making the NFL skin not show up as a return option – until it does update at least.

The good is that a fix for this is very simple: all you need to do is play a game or enter and leave Creative Mode. After that, you’ll see the prompt shown below and will be able to navigate to the Settings tab and issue a refund.

While the NFL skins were a fun addition to Fortnite for a lot of gamers, some players have found that they don’t use these skins as much as they did when they first came out. Trading one of these in will net you 1,500 V-Bucks as well, which could almost seem like an extra payday if you bought the skin a year or two ago.

Now that you’ve got an extra 1,500 V-Bucks burning a hole in your pocket, you can save them for later, or use them for one of the new skins that were leaked in the v14.30 update.
