Despite Epic Games confirming that the black and white superhero skins, which some had called “pay-to-win” due to their low visibility, would be fixed with the v15.30 update, there’s still a way to make your character look like they did before.

Ever since their release in-game, Fortnite fans have been complaining about the custom superhero skins as they gave the owners the ability to be completely black (or completely white), which in-turn caused visibility problems for enemy players.

Before the release of v15.30, Epic confirmed that they would be fixing the issue in that update, claiming that players would no longer be able to make their characters that way.

Now that the update is here, while the lighting has been changed around the map, some have already discovered a workaround in order to get your superhero skin how it was pre-patch.

The custom superhero skins were causing trouble for some players due to the fact that they were hardly visible.

How to use the all black and white OP superhero skins in Fortnite

Given the fact that it’s not supposed to work anymore, getting the skins to be all black or all white is a bit complicated now that update 15.30 is out in the wild. That being said, thanks to Twitter user GlitchKing15, we now know the steps you need to take in order to get it to work.

  1. Equip the Custom Superhero skin
  2. Select “Edit Style”
  3. Tab over to “Primary Suit Style”
  4. Select either Black or White
  5. Tab over to “Secondary Suit Style”
  6. Select the last color on the list that looks like an extremely dark blue
  7. Select “Save and Exit”
  8. Select “Edit Style” once again
  9. Tab over to “Secondary Suit Style”
  10. Select the Black or White color that has the “exclamation” sign over it.
  11. Tab back over to “Primary Suit Style” and repeat step 10.
  12. Select “Save and Exit” once more

Here’s a visual guide of the steps above, completed in-game:

Overall, the method is a bit complicated to pull off, especially compared to how it was before – now that you have to go back and forth between screens in order to do it, but it does seem to work.

It is worth pointing out that the skins are not supposed to operate this way and Epic will almost certainly be fixing this issue in the near future, so don’t be disappointed if this stops working after a while.

Until then, however, enjoy your OP skins.

The Storm Scout sniper is one of the most sought-after Exotic weapons in Fortnite right now. While the weapon’s been in the game for a while in certain forms, players can now get the rifle with Mave. Here’s how you can find the weapon and the NPC as of February 24.

It’s safe to say that the the Storm Scout is one of the most powerful weapons in Fortnite right now. While the actual damage that it outputs is impressive, it also shows exactly where the storm/circle will form in the future, giving a pretty notable advantage to those who use it.

While the weapon has been available in a variety of ways over the past couple years since it’s inclusion, Epic has now thrown players for a loop by changing up where it’s available.

Mave and Storm Scout sniper rifle location

The Storm Scout sniper can now be found with Mave after the latest update from Epic Games.

While the Storm Scout sniper was previously available via the Lexa NPC near Hunter’s Haven, this is no longer the case. Instead, players will now have to travel a little bit further east if they want to pick up the powerful weapon.

As of February 24, the Storm Scout sniper rifle is available via Mave, just east of Catty Corner. Funny enough, she’s is located almost in the same place as Cole, who once sold the Hop Rock Dualies, so if you know where he is, you’ll be able to find Mave with ease.

If you’re still confused about what to do, here’s a step-by-step guide to help you out:

  1. Land in the island and go to the location seen in the image above (it’s the cliffside southeast of Catty Corner, overlooking the ocean).
  2. Go up to Mave, who will be looking at a shine-like object on the cliffside.
  3. Interact with Mave and tab over to the Storm Scout sniper.
  4. Purchase the sniper.
  5. The weapon will automatically show up in your inventory after the leave the menu.

The Storm Scout sniper costs 500 gold from Mave.

Like most Exotic weapon being sold at NPCs, the Storm Scout sniper rifle will cost players 500 Gold, so if you want the ability to get the weapon, you’ll need to save up a bit.

And that’s it! After you complete the above tasks you’ll have a Storm Scout sniper at your disposal. Of course, given the fact that we’re so close to the launch of Season 6, there’s always a chance that the location will change again in a few weeks.

We’ll keep this article updated for any further developments or changes regarding the sniper’s location should they arise. Until then, keep it locked to Dexerto.
