It’s not just Super Styles being released for the Battle Pass on June 23, as the Fortnite 21.10 update will also make way for loads more styles for the Snap skin, which is featured in the Battle Pass.

Just like with the previous Snap styles, you’ll need to find Tover Tokens hidden around the Island to unlock them all. Expect four heads, four arms, two legs, and a new torso style this time around.
