Fortnite players will be able to get some interesting DC skins during the course of the Batman x Fortnite comic book run, which combines the DC Universe together with the battle royale. Here’s everything you need to know about it.
DC and Fortnite’s official crossover has been a long time coming. The two originally collaborated on a Batman skin back a few years back and after a few more cosmetics from the comic book universe made their way into the game, the two franchises are gearing up for Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point, a full-blown comic book crossover.
As previously announced, fans who purchase each book in the series will receive a special in-game item. Some might be skins, but not all of them have been confirmed. Here’s what we know so far.
Issue #1 Item: Rebirth Harley Quinn Outfit
This is one that we’ve known for the longest time but it’s still nice to get a confirmation. Fans who purchase the first issue of the Batman/Fortnite comic book will receive the Rebirth Harkey Quinn Outfit.
This outfit is based, as the name suggests, on her look from the DC Rebirth run in the comics. It sports a red and black jacket, alongside her classic red and blue pigtails.
It’s a pretty interesting look and sets itself apart from the other Harley Quinn skins that have been featured in the game.
If you don’t want to pick up the comic book issue for yourself and get immediate access to the cosmetic, it’ll also be available to purchase within the Fortnite Item Shop sometime in June 2021.
Issue #2 Item: Batman Zero Wing Glider
Fans of the Caped Crusader himself will be glad to know that the second issue of Batman x Fortnite: Zero Point is rumored to come with a code for a brand new glider that’s themed after the iconic superhero.

Leakers previously reported that an image of the glider was uploaded to the official DC website, but swiftly taken down. We’ll have to wait and see if this is legit when the issue arrives on May 4, 2021.
Issue #3 Item: Catwoman Grappling Claw Pickaxe
The third issue of the Batman x Fortnite crossover will actually see another major pop culture icon brought into the mix: Snake-Eyes from G.I. Joe! The character previously got a Fortnite skin, and will now face off against Batman in the comic.

As for the free cosmetic, this week players will get a code for Catwoman’s Grappler pickaxe, which will pair up well with the Catwoman skin – if you managed to get your hands on it, that is, as it hasn’t been seen in the Item Shop since last year.
Issue #4 Item: Deathstroke’s Glider
While it hasn’t been officially confirmed by DC nor Epic Games yet, some notable leakers have figured out that Deathstroke’s Glider will be the reward for buying Issue #4 of the Batman/Fortnite comic book.

The design itself is relatively simple, featuring almost a triangle design, with grey and orange accents, mirroring Deathstroke’s color scheme.
While it’s not as cool as an actual skin for the character, it’s still a unique design and one that DC fans might be interested in.
Armored Batman Zero Outfit
Players who purchase all six issues of the comic will receive the special Armored Batman Zero Outfit. While the design of the skin was hinted at on one of the covers, during the Batman/Fortnite trailer, fans got their first official look at the skin.
The suit features a very different design from the classic Batman look that everyone knows and loves. The Armored Batman suit features, as one might imagine, more armor than the standard look, but it also looks more survival-esque as well.
As of the time of writing, neither DC or Epic Games have announced if fans will be able to get their hands on the skin through the Item Shop, however, given the fact that it’s a reward for buying all issues, it seems unlikely.
Of course, we’ll continue to update this article as new skins get revealed, including the Armored Batman Zero Outfit, so be sure to keep your eyes locked to Dexerto for all the latest info.
