Even though many of Marvel’s iconic characters are in Fortnite, you can actually make your own unique superhero thanks to the item shop. Here’s what you need to know. 

When Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 4 kicked off, the battle royale became completely Marvel comics themed with the introduction of some new points of interest and even changes to the weapon pool.


Obviously, Epic Games haven’t missed a beat either with the ever-popular cosmetics. You can dress up as Iron Man, Thor, Storm, and even Wolverine. 

However, if you fancy yourself as a comic book character, or just want to have a unique skin that nobody else is likely to have, well you’re in luck as the developers have made it possible through the item shop.

How to customize superhero skins in Fortnite

With the recent V14.10 update, the devs added a customization option in the form of Become a Hero.’ This is somewhat similar to the customizable glider from Chapter 2, Season 3, but you don’t have to tick off a whole bunch of challenges. 

Instead, you just have to go into the Item Shop, purchase one of the customizable skin packs, and then you can let your imagination run pretty wild with changes. 

These skins cost 1800 V-Bucks and you’ll have to pick the style that you like but once you do, you can change the colors, tweak the pickaxe, and give yourself a logo that will be used on the front as well as a back bling. 

  1. Load up Fortnite
  2. Head into the Item Shop
  3. Purchase one of the customizable skins
  4. Head to the locker and customize your hero!

Obviously, you can choose one of the skins that are available now so that you can be guaranteed a hero, but as Epic keeps adding new cosmetics, something else might take your eye later down the line.

If you choose to purchase multiple customizable superhero skins, just follow the same steps are above and you’ll be able to customize them to your heart’s content.

Epic Games have had four of their upcoming Fortnite bundles leaked following the v14.30 update, but it’s unclear if this is all that’s coming with the Fortnitemares Halloween event. 

The game’s developers have arguably been a little slower than usual for rolling out new content in the battle royale title, yet we are quickly approaching a busy time of year for the game – the festive season.


In the weeks and months ahead, we can expect to see a full-blown Halloween event, coupled by their holiday challenges and updates.

For now, though, we’ll just have to settle for a few bundles here and there to keep the game ticking over. Some of them look impressive nonetheless.

Fortnite has been given a big shakeup in recent times, and more bundles are coming.

Fortnite leaked bundles from v14.30 update

Following the rollout of the game’s latest patch, which saw the introduction of a Rally Royale LTM and gave the Pump Shotgun a big buff, leakers were quickly hard at work finding unreleased content.

On October 13, ShiinaBR hit the jackpot with four different bundles – as seen below.

They include Daredevil’s red skin, as well as previously released Halloween skins that will likely return to the Item Shop.


The data miner didn’t put an expected release date on any of these bundles, or prices for that matter, but their introduction to the game files suggests players won’t have to wait long before they are made available to use in-game.

As mentioned earlier, Halloween is just around the corner for the community, so we should expect even more weird and wonderful skins to be released in the near future.

If it goes down anything like this patch, they will probably be leaked ahead of time as well – so keep your eyes peeled.
