The Shadows Rising bundle is set to be available once again in Fortnite, so if you missed out first time around, you’ve got another chance. 

While most Fortnite players look to set themselves apart from the pack with their incredible building or shooting skills, there are others who bring a bit more swag to the battle royale. Yes, we’re talking about cosmetics.

These cosmetics range from character skins to pickaxes to emotes and even sprays, with some players having vast collections. Some skins are much, much rarer than others so if you get them, you can have bragging rights over your fellow players.

Owners of the Shadows Rising pack might have thought this was going to become another of the ultra-rare cosmetic sets, but they won’t be the case.

Where to buy Fortnite’s Shadows Rising bundle

Multiple leakers have noted that the cosmetic pack is set to be available once again in Fortnite almost a year after it first arrived.

Included in the bundle are three skins, three back blings, and a weapon wrap. Though, you won’t find this set in the Fortnite Item Shop. Instead, you’ll have to go to the part of the menu where you buy V-Bucks. There, it will appear as a bundle for the price of $19.99 (£15.99).

  1. Load up Fortnite and head into the battle royale menus
  2. Scroll all the way to the right until you find the V-Bucks section
  3. Click on the bundle and then hit purchase
  4. Confirm your purchase and you will own the bundle

You can, however, also find these bundles in the  Xbox and PlayStation digital stores. Simply head into your store of choice, search for Shadows Rising, and you’ll be able to buy it straight from there.

In the past, players have been able to pair the Shadows Rising skins with the Stark Splitter pickaxe for a pretty sweet combo, though, it isn’t included in the pack. You’ll have to hope that the Item Shop stocks it around the same time.

The bundle is currently available in New Zealand but as Fortnite continues to update around the globe, it will become available in different regions. So, you’ll just have to keep an eye on things.


Ali-A reveals unreleased Fortnite skin haunting Weeping Woods

Popular Fortnite YouTuber Ali-A has shown that the previously leaked Madcap skin looks to be coming soon as a mobile glitch has revealed a strange character ‘haunting’ Weeping Woods. 

Across the different Fortnite seasons and updates, Epic Games have released a vast amount of cosmetics – with fans picking out their favorites and donning them in-game. 

Typically, these skins are leaked ahead of time as leakers are able to decrypt games files that are added to the mix with each new update and patch. Some of these skins never see the light of day, or are held back for quite a while, despite being leaked following a patch. 

One of the skins that falls into this category is the Madcap – a glowing, purple, Mushroom-themed skin. It was leaked quite a while back, and while it hasn’t been available just yet, it looks like it will be pretty soon.

Each new Fortnite update leaks a whole host of skins.

Popular YouTuber Ali-A pointed out that some Fortnite mobile players on Android had spotted the outline of a skin sitting around in Weeping Woods. 

The character that seems to be ‘haunting’ the POI, is stood under a tree with their arms crossed. However, it’s not colorful. Instead, it’s a blacked-out silhouette – almost as if it’s going to be added soon, but is showing up as a visual glitch in-game. 

Ali-A noted that the character is most definitely Madcap because of the shape of the head, and given that he’s hanging around Weeping Woods, there might be a challenge or quest line involved with unlocking the skin.

Even though the YouTuber’s speculation seems pretty spot on, there’s no telling if he’s right just yet because Epic Games hasn’t announced anything. 

It could very well be that, as Fortnitemares unfolds, the skin will finally be available through the item shop and there are also challenges in Weeping Woods to unlock skin styles. Though, we’ll just have to wait and see.
