The Boys star Jack Quaid really wants to see his show represented in Fortnite with skins in the near future.

Fortnite has had an incredible amount of success with its crossover event skins ranging from Marvel and DC superheroes, Star Wars characters, and even Twitch streamers such as Tyler “Ninja” Blevins

However, not every superhero franchise has had its time to shine in Epic’s battle royale extravaganza yet, with Amazon’s The Boys still relatively new to the scene despite being extremely popular.

That could all change if Jack Quaid, who plays series protagonist Hughie Campbell, has any say in the matter.

Marvel superheroes have taken over Fortnite.

In an interview with Comicbook, the actor explained how he really wants to see The Boys skins in the game, but understood there are some legal matters that would need to be attended to.

“There are so many legal things to figure out with that, but I’ve been spending a lot of my time playing Fortnite with Jessie T Usher who plays A-Train, in quarantine,” he said. “And every time I play, I’m like, ‘This is perfect for our characters, just for skins.’”

“It just makes so much sense. It makes so much sense,” he added, further pushing the idea. “It needs to be a thing.”

This all said, even if The Boys skins don’t end up coming to Fortnite, he still thinks the franchise should be adapted into a video game.

“I think you could make many different games out of The Boys franchise, because there’s a game you can make it all about A-Train, you can make it all about The Boys and make it like a tactical, first-person shooter, third-person shooter type of thing,” he suggested.

Furthermore, he even pondered that Rocksteady Studios be the ones to make the game.

“I just think the different kinds of gameplay you could get from a video game would be really cool,” he added. “Get the guys that did Arkham Asylum, Arkham City, and all that stuff. Get them.”

Only time will tell what the future holds for The Boys and if there is a crossover with Fortnite, but as the show grows increasingly popular the odds of that happening seem ever more likely.

The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) is back for Chapter 2 Season 4, with a return to the beloved Trios format that fans have been clamoring to see make a return. With the action kicking off on October 9, here’s everything you need to know to make sure you catch all of the action.

FNCS is making its return to trios in Season 4 for the first time since the inaugural Season X event. While it’s been a pretty poorly kept secret, there are some changes to the format from when it last appeared in August 2019.

With qualifiers now completed, we’re heading into the main stage of the FNCS Season 4 event, with a full month of competitive Fortnite on the way featuring some of the biggest names in the game competing for their cut of the prize money.

FNCS Season 4 format

FNCS Season 4 returns to the Trios format that has been used in the past, and is arguably the most popular competitive format in the tournament’s history, with past events filled with massive plays and huge battles that make for the ultimate Fortnite viewing experience.

As always, FNCS runs on a points-based scoring system, with your final placement in matches contributing to your overall score at the end of the weekend. Those who manage to win a game will receive 25 points as their reward, with the values decreasing incrementally down to 17th place, with anyone finishing below that scoring nothing. There are points for finding eliminations though, so players will be on the lookout for enemies to wipe out and add to their tally.

FNCS scoring system

  • Victory Royale: 25 Points
  • 2nd: 20 Points
  • 3rd: 16 Points
  • 4th: 14 Points
  • 5th: 13 Points
  • 6th: 12 Points
  • 7th: 11 Points
  • 8th: 10 Points
  • 9th: 9 Points
  • 10th: 8 Points

FNCS will be running in all the same regions it has been for the last few seasons: NA-West, NA-East, South American, EU, Middle East, Asia, and OCE, with the competition running on PC and consoles.
