Epic Games are set to add a brand new Harley Quinn bundle to the Fortnite Item Shop, but there’s one style that you can’t just purchase with V-Bucks. Here’s how to get the Always Fantabulous Harley skin style. 

The cosmetic pack, inspired by DC’s character, was previously leaked following the arrival of the 11.50 update on February 5. Now, though, the crossover has been confirmed by the game’s developers.

Announced in a blog post, just a day after the patch rolled out, Harley Quinn was confirmed as the next major addition to the Fortnite skin collection. The pack itself, which includes the Harley Quinn Outfit, Harley Hitter and Punchline Pickaxes, will be added to the Item Shop on February 6 and will 1,500 V-Bucks.

It won’t be there for long, though, as it’s only sticking around until February 17. One thing that it doesn’t include, however, is the character’s second skin style, so let’s take a look at how to get it.

How to get Harley Quinn’s ‘Always Fantabulous Harley’ skin style

Renowned leaker HYPEX previously shared a number of Harley Quinn challenges and they have since been confirmed. Owners of the bundle are going to need to complete three different challenges to unlock the extra Harley Quinn skin style.

The challenges are as follows:

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

By completing these three, you can unlock what appears to be a slightly shorter-haired Harley Quinn wearing alternate clothing, giving some variation to what other players might be wearing in-game.

These challenges look extremely easy and could all be completed in one game if you play your cards right, so there’s no need to stress over getting the extra style.

HYPEX followed up from his tweet shortly after with a closer look at both the regular and alternate skin styles, showing what they look like in the inventory with a full view of the entire skin.

People seem pretty impressed with it in the replies, saying they “need” the skin or that it is an “instant purchase.”

There’s no confirmed price point at the time of writing, but it seems some players already want to purchase the Harley Quinn skin, regardless of the cost — so this may prove to be a very popular one.

With the extra style so easy to unlock, it might not be quite the rare skin people would hope for, but it will still look great as you roam the map and earn a Victory Royale ahead of Birds of Prey’s official release.

SypherPK finds his own secret easter egg in Fortnite Season 5

Fortnite sensation SypherPK made a public request a few weeks back and Epic Games seem to have heard him loud and clear as the content creator was stunned by his very own secret easter egg in Season 5.

As one of the most popular Fortnite content creators, SypherPK has millions of fans that listen to his every word. As it turns out, a few developers are among those avid viewers. A request made on November 2 has finally made an impact, thanks to those at Epic Games who tuned into his video.

Members of his community were pleading for SypherPK to receive his own in-game reference. Whether it’s a small poster somewhere on the map, or even an entire Point of Interest referring back to his name. However, the YouTuber had something else in mind.

“We need something that’s very simple,” he said. “We want to add a book to Fortnite. A ‘How to Win’ book,” based on one of his most popular series. Well with the arrival of a brand new season, SypherPK’s wish has come true.

“They actually did it,” he shared on December 2. One of the first things he did in Season 5 was check the weather station. Even to his surprise, the developers had listened to his request and actually followed through.

“This is my creation,” he said in shock upon discovering a vibrant red book exactly where he requested one to be. While it doesn’t reference the ‘How to Win’ series in any way, Sypher was overjoyed at the fact his community had “added something to the game.”

There’s now a physical item in-game thanks to a video he made back in November. Not only that, but the book has been special in a few ways. For starters, physics are applied to the object, so it properly bounces around and moves as you’d expect it to. The book is also invincible, meaning players can’t go about destroying Sypher’s unique creation.

It’s one of the more subtle easter eggs in Fortnite. If you weren’t an active fan of Sypher before Season 5, you wouldn’t be aware of this secret at all. But for those in the know, it’s a special little reference just for his community.

Obviously, the easter egg has no real influence on the game, so don’t track it down expecting some kind of buff or secret item to come along with it. But it’s clearly a sign that developers are always keeping tabs on the biggest content creators.
