How to get the John Cena skins

To acquire the John Cena cosmetics in Fortnite, you’ll need to shell out your hard-earned V-bucks. Unfortunately, there isn’t a way to earn the skin by completing challenges, so hopefully you’ve got some extra currency lying around. If not, you’ll have to buy some with real money. To get the most expensive bundle, you’ll need 2,000 V-bucks, which is equal to around $14. Be sure to check out the V-bucks store to grab some extra currency if need be.

These are the John Cena bundle options:

  • John Cena — Outfit
  • WWE Championship Title — Back Bling
  • Five Digit Slapper — Harvesting Tool
  • U Can’t C Me — Emote

This is the main bundle that comes with all four John Cena cosmetics (along with two styles: Ring Gear and Entrance Gear). Buying the bundle does save you 700 V-bucks, so if you plan on purchasing all four items, this bundle is the way to go.

John Cena — 1,500 V-bucks

If you’re looking for the least-expensive option, the regular John Cena outfit will be up your alley. This is available for only 1,500 V-bucks and even comes with Cena’s WWE Championship Back Bling. You’ll miss out on the Five Digit Slapper Harvesting Tool and the U Can’t C Me Emote, but if you’re aiming to save money, this is the way to go.

Five Digit Slapper — 800 V-bucks

Perhaps you just want the Five Digit Slapper Harvesting Tool. If so, you only need to shell out 800 V-bucks to get your hands on it.

U Can’t See Me — 400 V-bucks

Likewise, the famous U Can’t C Me Emote is available standalone for 400 V-Bucks.

All of these John Cena cosmetics are available for a limited time, though it hasn’t been confirmed when the cosmetics will leave the Item Shop. Typically, popular skins like this one stick around for at least a week and even reappear in the Item Shop at a later date.

A list of all the Fortnite augments, and how to use them

Every new chapter of Fortnite is a massive event. While seasonal changes bring plenty of minor tweaks and additions, it's almost always when a new chapter rolls around that major overhauls or new mechanics are introduced. Fortnite Chapter 4 was no exception, and aside from the extreme changes the island underwent, it brought one very important change to gameplay that wmakes a huge difference when going for that illusive victory royal (it isn't easy to win Fortnite, after all).

Augments, well, augment the game. There are a few challenges that somewhat introduce what these are, but they leave out almost all the important details for you to find out on your own. Augments need to be considered, and deeply understood, not only for when you get them yourself but to know what new tricks your opponents could have up their sleeves. Before you get taken by surprise, here's a complete breakdown of how to unlock augments and how they work in Fortnite.
What are augments in Fortnite?
Augments, or Reality Augments, are essentially a new perk system introduced into Fortnite. There are currently 22 augments in the game, but with more to come in future updates. You can get access to multiple augments during a single match, but augments do not carry over after a match is finished, whether you win or lose. These perks can range from modifying certain weapon types to granting buffs for performing actions, and much more. There are no bad augments, so you will want to get as many as possible. Augments also have their own tab in your menu where you can see which ones you've had so far to track your progress using them all.

Surviving in Fortnite and securing a Victory Royale takes skill and luck. Getting better at Fortnite requires a knowledge of the playing field and a drive to outlast your opponents, but none of that matters if you aren't picking up the right weapons. Building a loadout that suits your playstyle and managing your inventory as the match progresses is key to snagging a win. You don't want to be caught in a long-range battle against someone on a mountaintop without a solid rifle on hand, and you certainly don't want to find yourself inside a close-quarters building without an SMG or shotgun.

Our guide to the best weapons in Fortnite breaks down rarity types and what they mean, the most effective arms in each weapon category, and tips for how to use them. Chapter 4, Season 2 brought a lengthy list of changes to the Fortnite arsenal -- including new weapons and the return of some fan favorites.
