Fortnite players are able to get some interesting DC skins thanks to 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 geared up for Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point, a full-blown comic book crossover.
As previously announced, fans who purchase each book in the series receive a special in-game item. Some are skins, others are Gliders, and we’ve got the full rundown on all there is to know.
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, it also became available to purchase within the Fortnite Item Shop 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 comes 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. It was officially released on May 4 along with the Batman Zero Outfit.

Issue #3 Item: Catwoman Grappling Claw Pickaxe
The third issue of the Batman x Fortnite crossover saw another new item added into the game on May 18. This time around, fans could grab Catwoman’s Grappling Claw as a unique Harvesting Tool.
This could work as a great pairing for the Catwoman skin if you’ve been able to get your hands on the rare Item Shop goodie.

Issue #4 Item: Deathstroke’s Destroyer Glider
The fourth issue delivered the second Batman crossover Glider on June 1. By purchasing the latest release, players could grab the Deathstroke Destroyer Glider. The design itself is relatively simple, featuring almost a triangle shape, 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.

Issue #5 Item: Harley Quinn’s Revenge Back Bling
Up next was some unique Back Bling available through Issue #5. By purchasing the latest release on June 15, players were able to access Harley Quinn’s Revenge Back Bling alongside the Rebirth Harley Quinn Outfit.
This Back Bling takes after one of Harley’s gag weapons, with a countdown timer exploding in confetti rather than actual dynamite.
Issue #6 Item: Batarang Axe Harvesting Tool
Last but not least, the final issue on July 6 brought another unique Harvesting Tool. This time around, players could redeem the exclusive code to secure the Batarang Axe Harvesting Tool.
Moreover, redeeming this final code also provided another special unlock. Complimenting the new Harvesting Tool, an exclusive Batman skin was also released on the same day.
Bonus Armored Batman Zero Outfit
Players who purchase all six issues of the comic 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 down the line.
However, given the fact that it’s a reward for buying all issues, it seems unlikely.
