After a recent update introducing a change to Fortnite’s NFL skins, Epic Games is giving players the chance to return them for a limited time, and we have all the info on how to do so.

Fortnite’s v14.30 update brought a change to the game’s NFL skins, removing the name and logo for the team formerly known as the Washington Redskins. 

After years of public backlash, the team removed their nickname and are now officially called the “Washington Football Team” while they work on getting a new trademark.

In-game, the team has been removed from the available options in their line of NFL skins. Now, when you visit the customization tab, Washington will be the last option with no logo. With this change, Epic is allowing players to return their purchase for a limited time – without using a refund token.

Washington’s NFL Fortnite skin will be this instead.

But this exchange isn’t as straightforward as you might think, and has led to some confusion amongst players trying to figure out how to do it.

Players who still have refund tokens should be able to navigate to the proper tab by going to Settings > Profile (far right) > Lifetime Return Requests > Submit a Request. There, you should see the NFL outfit listed as one of the items eligible for returns.

But, if you’ve already used all of your refund tokens, the “Submit a Request” Button won’t’ be active. Another problem you may run into is that your game didn’t update right away, making the NFL skin not show up as a return option – until it does update at least.

The good is that a fix for this is very simple: all you need to do is play a game or enter and leave Creative Mode. After that, you’ll see the prompt shown below and will be able to navigate to the Settings tab and issue a refund.

While the NFL skins were a fun addition to Fortnite for a lot of gamers, some players have found that they don’t use these skins as much as they did when they first came out. Trading one of these in will net you 1,500 V-Bucks as well, which could almost seem like an extra payday if you bought the skin a year or two ago.

Now that you’ve got an extra 1,500 V-Bucks burning a hole in your pocket, you can save them for later, or use them for one of the new skins that were leaked in the v14.30 update.

Fortnite leak reveals size of upcoming Venom skin and it’s scary

A Fortnite leak has revealed the size of the upcoming Venom skin, and it looks like it’s going to be pretty big.

Over the course of Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 4, some of the most well-known and much loved Marvel character have been available to purchase as a skin, or have had their abilities be playable in-game.

That includes the likes of Iron Man, Thor, and Groot, but there are still some characters that have been rumored, and even leaked, to be coming to the battle royale that still haven’t made an appearance. 

Venom, the adversary of Spider-Man, has been teased as a new skin given that his abilities have been seen in-game through the Marvel limited-time mode. Though, a first-look hasn’t been leaked just yet.

Season 4 has been all about Marvel, but that will change in Season 5.

Well, while leakers haven’t been able to show off the new skin just yet, they have been able to reveal just how big it’ll look in-game. 

“Venom is confirmed to be a skin and it’s supposed to be large like Brutus,” reliable leaker HYPEX tweeted on October 29. As anyone who has played the last few seasons of Fortnite knows, Brutus is one of the game’s bigger and bulky characters. 

So, it looks like Venom will be coming in his bigger than usual form – rather than fitting into a usually tiny frame like Jonesy or the other defaults. Though, some fans would also like to see a normal Eddie Brock skin, similar to how there’s also a Tony Stark skin. 

On top of the Venom confirmation, HYPEX also noted that fellow leaker intercelluar uncovered two other skins with the code names ‘PinkRaptor’ and ‘LunchBox’.

Given that Epic Games love to hide their skin behind these cryptic names, there’s no telling for sure as to what they could be, and we’ll just have to wait until a leaker manages to make them public.
