G.I. Joe has dropped into Fortnite, with Snake Eyes joining the ever-growing roster of crossovers in Season 5. Here’s how you can unlock the new skin, and what other items are bundled into the set.
Real name? Classified. Ninja Master? Verified. G.I. Joe is now in Fortnite Season 5, although his arrival wasn’t as sneaky as the Ninja would have hoped.
The potential of the crossover has been known for a while, and devs have been fuelling the fire over the last week.
Epic Games’ Donald Mustard teased it in a series of cryptic tweets on January 28. He changed his Twitter bio location to “Arashikage Clan,” a reference to the home of Snake Eyes. He sent a photo of himself reading the G.I. Joe comics too.

That was on top of the official Fortnite account tweeting about a clan with the “best codenames” and an iconic phrase from the series — “Knowing is half the battle.”

Snake Eyes G.I. Joe Fortnite skin price
The Snake Eyes G.I. Joe bundle will set you back 1,800 V-Bucks in Fortnite. That’s quite a bit for a skin, but you’re not just getting the Snake Eyes skin.
You’re also getting his signature Katana in two different colors — a Black one as a Back Bling, and a Silver one as a Pickaxe. There’s no glider or emote bundled into the package, but if you’re a G.I. Joe fan, you can go around the Island swinging like it’s the 80s again.

The Snake Eyes bundle will only be in the Fortnite store for a limited time, and it may never return. You have to get in quick if you want to pick it up before the Ninja disappears yet again.
