Another brand new Marvel character, Daredevil, is making his way into Fortnite’s item shop, but there’s a way you can get your hands on the skin completely free of charge and ahead of everyone else.

This season of Fortnite has been a Marvel fan’s dream. Between skins for classic characters like Wolverine, to more niche characters like Blade, and even points of interest for Ant-Man, developer Epic Games has packed the past couple months with everything a Marvel fan could hope for.

Now, another major character is making his way into the game. Daredevil, otherwise known as the Man Without Fear, is coming to the Fortnite item shop sometime in the near future. Epic has also confirmed that players will be able to earn his skin completely free of charge and before everyone else. Here’s what you need to know about how to get him.

The new tournament will be the first of four, the rest of which will go on during the month of November.

How do I earn the Daredevil skin for free and early?

In order to get the Daredevil skin both free and early, fans must compete in The Daredevil Cup, which takes place on October 14. This tournament is the first of four that will be held over the next two months or so and will utilize the Marvel Knockout LTM.

For those that don’t know, this mode gives two teams the same super abilities and pits them against each other in a small area. The first team with more points wins the match.

In order to get the skin, you have to be a part of the top teams in each region, which means probably not a lot of people will get their hands on it for free. Still, if you’re able to complete this task, you’ll be able to redeem it and put it in your inventory before everyone else.

When will the Daredevil skin be available in the Item Shop?

Currently, it’s unknown when non-participants will be able to get their hands on the Daredevil skin, although Epic Games has confirmed that will come to the Item Shop at some point.

That could mean it’s getting added to the shop a few days after the cup itself, or even after all four cups are done with. At this point, it’s anyone’s guess, but we’ll be updating this article as we get more information.


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.
