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:

  • 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.

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.

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.

Where to find Vendetta Flopper in Lego Fortnite
Characters fishing in LEGO Fortnite.

The fishing update to Lego Fortnite added, you guessed it, the ability to fish once you've made yourself a rod. Of course, since fish didn't exist in the game before this, an entire school of undersea life needed to be created. Every fish you can catch has a different benefit, from restoring a bunch of health when you eat it to giving you some kind of buff. The rarest and most useful fish is certainly the Vendetta Flopper, making it the most coveted catch in the game. While fishing is still heavily dependent on luck, you won't even have a chance at this fish unless you know where to cast your line.
Where to find the Vendetta Flopper

Before you even attempt to attempt this legendary catch, make sure you're ready with an Epic fishing rod and Epic Bait Bucket to give yourself the best chance at a rare catch. The nest step is to only cast into the glowing purple zones that indicate the presence of rare fish. Fishing in any other part of the water won't yield the Vendetta Flopper we're after.

All Charms and Trinkets in Lego Fortnite

Most things in Lego Fortnite are grounded in reality -- well, as much as they can be in a game where you are a little Lego man running around collecting resources and building entire villages by yourself. You slowly accumulate better gear as you craft new items and upgrade your existing facilities so you can venture further out and face tougher challenges.

There's some equipment that works a bit differently, namely your Trinkets and Charms. These little doodads can be crafted as you collect specific resources, they come in a range of rarities, and all of them give your character a specific buff that can be placed on your armor to add to your character. There's a lot of them out there to find and craft, so we've cataloged all the Charms and Trinkets in Lego Fortnite and what they do.
