Marvel has well and truly taken over Fortnite in Season 4 and with iconic characters all over the map, there’s one key way you can stand out. Foil skin variants are in the game but extremely hard to come by, here’s what you need to know.

From Thor to Wolverine and plenty more, a number of Marvel’s most popular characters are making their presence felt in Fortnite. The Season 4 update introduced a ton of fresh content around these additions with plenty more coming as the season rolls on.


Eight unique skins can be claimed throughout the Season 4 Nexus War Battle Pass. However, if you’re looking for some additional flair, you’ll need to put in some work. Epic Games has introduced new variants for each of the new Marvel skins, but you won’t be seeing them in-game anytime soon.

Players will need to be extremely dedicated if they want to unlock all of the Silver, Gold, and Holo variants for their favorite skins. Here’s everything you need to know in order to map out your goals for the season.

Eight iconic Marvel heroes and villains have taken over Fortnite in Season 4.

The Season 4 Battle Pass comes boasting the standard 100 tiers to unlock. Players can earn experience to push through each tier, or they can pay to skip all 100 and rush through it immediately. While it might seem as though the rewards stop here, there’s actually more to do once you’ve ‘maxed out’ for the season.

You may remember the extraordinarily rare Golden Peely skin variant from Season 2. Epic is continuing that trend with three high-tier variants available for each Marvel character. Some can be unlocked quite easily, while others might take you until the final day of the season to earn.

The first unique variant is a Silver skin for Thor which can be unlocked at level 105. On the opposite end, the highest rarity item is Holographic foil for Wolverine. This can only be unlocked by reaching level 220, more than double the experience required to fill out the Battle Pass.


It’ll likely be a few weeks before you start seeing these skin variants in the wild. Wolverine’s highest tier might take well over a month for even the most dedicated players to reach. Here’s a breakdown of every Marvel skin variant in Fortnite Season 4.

Regular wins and a ton of eliminations will certainly help with experience gains. Your best bet if you want to reach these ultimate goals though is to complete challenges. Each week there’s a new set available that reward over 200,000XP.

Here’s how you can get through the first batch of challenges to be well on your way. Keep your eyes peeled for secret objectives as the season rolls on as well, as XP gains are often hidden away around the map.

The v14.30 update has finally been released for Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 4 and it has introduced some secret changes that Epic Games did not include in the latest set of patch notes.

Fortnite’s superhero-themed Season 4 is continuing to deliver fresh content, with even more characters like Daredevil soon to be released in-game, as part of the upcoming Marvel Knockout Super Series.


However, while Epic revealed that there were other tweaks, such as minor buffs for the Combat shotgun, there were a few secret changes that were not revealed in the latest patch notes. Here’s everything you need to know.

Galactus added to the Fortnite map

While there have been many Marvel heroes added to Fortnite in Season 4, it was also revealed that Galactus would appear in the battle royale as the villain, ahead of the Nexus War event.


It seems as if he has finally been added to the Fortnite map after some eagle-eyed Fortnite fans discovered a change in the map’s skyline, with a bizarre red dot now visible after the 14.30 patch.

Fortnite leaker iFireMonkey revealed that the “distant object” in the sky was Galactus and that he was on his way to the Fortnite island ahead of his showdown with the Avengers and other Marvel characters.

New Black Panther Mythic Ability

Fortnite’s Season 4 also saw the introduction of new Mythic Abilities that players can equip in-game and the latest update, on October 13, added a Black Panther ability called “Kinetic Armor.”


The new power works similarly to the character’s suit in the popular Marvel movies, allowing players to absorb more damage, run faster, and even deal damage to nearby opponents and structures, after it has been activated.

Fortnite YouTuber SypherPK shared gameplay of Black Panther’s Kinetic Armor and revealed that it can be found in the Stark Industries Supply Drones that are scattered across different points-of-interest on the Fortnite map.

Fortnite Holly Hedges map changes

There were also some secret map changes that were not mentioned in Fortnite’s recent patch notes and the v14.30 update saw tweaks to the Superstore near the Holly Hedges POI.


With some Halloween-themed changes expected to arrive in Fortnite in the coming weeks, Epic Games has redecorated the landmark and renamed it the “Hey Boo Megastore.”

While this is one of the first Halloween-based changes so far, it is likely that more will be on the way ahead of the upcoming Fortnitemares Halloween event.

Epic teases Midas’ return to Fortnite

Midas has been one of the biggest characters in Fortnite Chapter 2, but after his attempt to shake up the world in Season 2’s in-game event, he has completely disappeared from the battle royale.

While he was last seen being eaten by a shark in the Season 3 trailer, it seems the mysterious character could be set for a return in the upcoming Halloween event, with his golden chair now appearing in The Authority POI.

These are all of the secret changes that have been found so far after Fortnite’s 14.30 patch, but as it is still early we will be sure to update you with any new discoveries.
