On August 22, Epic Games will begin a Fortnite collaboration with the EDM trio Major Lazer, following in the footsteps of previous events such as its Marshmello concert. The event will bring with it a special Major Lazer skin for Fortnite, and you’ll want to get your hands on it as soon as it is made available. Here is how to get the Major Lazer skin in Fortnite.
When can you get the skin?
The Fortnite item shop will update at 5 p.m PT/8 p.m ET on August 22, and this is when you can expect to be able to purchase the skin. It is always possible that Epic Games will opt to offer it sooner, but this has been the approach the company has been using thus far.
How much will it cost?
The highest-cost skin in the Fortnite shop currently costs 1,500 V-Bucks. It’s predicted that the Major Lazer skin will also cost this amount, which translates to about $15. V-Bucks can be purchased in packs of 1,000, meaning you’ll also have some left over to spend on other digital goodies. As we’ll discuss below, some of those for sale will likely be other Major Lazer digital items.
What will the skin look like?
The Major Lazer skin won’t be based directly on the members of the group, but rather an animated series they produced. With a beret and sunglasses, you’ll look like a warlord ready to kick some ass, with a few microphones strapped to your chest. It has an 80’s action movie vibe that we’re all about, and you can see a sneak peek in Epic Games’ tweet below.

What else will be available?
Data-miners have already uncovered a few other goodies you can get alongside the skin. This includes a dance emote, back bling, and a pickaxe. The dance can be seen below, and we’re not going to lie: It is pretty funky.

Naturally, you’ll need to get it all if you want to show your true Major Lazer fandom. The price of these could get pretty expensive, however, so make sure you have a surplus of V-Bucks if you plan on getting everything. You might even get special bonuses for free later on if the Marshmello skin is any indication.
