How to get the Ghost Rider skin in Fortnite

Fortnite’s Marvel-themed season 4 is still ongoing, and Epic Games has just announced a new hero skin to get your hands on, joining the likes of Wolverine, Blade, Daredevil, Thor, and others. Starting on November 4, 2020, players will be able to gain access to a Ghost Rider skin, along with the vigilante’s gear for free. Much like the Daredevil skin before it, you’ll need to participate in a tournament while earning a certain amount of points during the Marvel Knockout trios mode to gain access to the skin.

In this guide, we’ll show you exactly what you need to do to obtain the Ghost Rider skin in Fortnite.

Beginning on November 4th at 6:00 p.m. EST, players will be able to participate in the Ghost Rider Cup, which pits players against one another in the Marvel Knockout trios mode. According to the event description, “top scoring players from each region will receive the Ghost Rider outfit before it arrives in the Item Shop,” meaning it will be awarded for free if you perform well enough. Your region will determine the rank you need to achieve to earn the skin. We’ll list some of them below, as noted by the official rules:

  • Europe — within top 800
  • NA East — within top 500
  • NA West — within top 200
  • Brazil — within top 200
  • Asia — within top 100
  • Oceania — within top 100
  • Middle East — within top 100

You’ll be awarded points based on your performance during the tournament. For example, those who reach first place in a match will be awarded 25 points, second place will earn 10 points, third and fourth place get you 5 points, fifth through eighth will grant you 3 points, and anyone who comes in between ninth and sixteenth will get 1 point.

Teams are able to participate in up to 10 matches during a session, which is expected to last three hours. Once the event ends at 9:00 p.m. EST, the tournament will be over and the ability to earn the Ghost Rider skin for free will be cut off. Keep in mind, you must have an account level of 30 to participate and must have two-factor authentication set up.

However, much like the Daredevil and Blade skins, you’ll be able to purchase the Ghost Rider skin and his cosmetics from the Item Shop — but only for a limited time. It’s unclear when the skin will be available, but it’ll likely be a day or two after the tournament has ended. Since we don’t know how much it’ll cost yet, many are predicting it’ll be around 2,000 V-bucks for the bundle that includes the Ghost Rider skin, Back Bling, glider, emote, and harvesting tool.

If the Daredevil skin is any indication, Ghost Rider won’t be available in the Item Shop for long — possibly around four or five days. So if you want the skin and don’t want to participate in the tournament, you should purchase it as soon as you can.

The best places to land in Fortnite right now
Character landing in Fortnite.

Survival is key in Fortnite, and it all starts by picking the best starting location. Even if you're an expert player, your likelihood of coming out on top is greatly diminished if you start off on the wrong foot -- whether it be at a barren location with no loot or a hot drop that could lead to a swift death. As part of Fortnite Chapter 4, Season 3, there's no shortage of fantastic landing spots, but which one you choose comes down to your skill and preference, and you're going to want to pick the right one if you want to win Fortnite. So join us as we show you the best Fortnite landing spots for veterans, beginners, and everyone in-between.
The best places to land in Fortnite

Before jumping into the list, it's important to be aware of what makes a good landing spot. Sure, any place with decent loot might serve you well, but there's more to consider than that. Does a spot have a consistent chest/loot spawn? Are there guaranteed materials? Is it close to other places of interest (POI)s? Is it out of the way? Of course, loot is the most important aspect, but it does you no good to have a stacked loadout if you're stuck in the storm. These recommended landing spots all have some degree of consistency and fantastic loot, and typically have some quirk that makes them effective depending on your playstyle.

Fortnite Reality Augments: full list 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 makes a huge difference when going for that elusive 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 a new perk system introduced into Fortnite. There are currently 20 augments in the game, but there are 32 total that cycle in and out with each Season. 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.

How many skins are in Fortnite?

With each new Fortnite season comes a slew of new cosmetics to earn through the Battle Pass or to purchase in the item shop. With the game being out for nearly six years, the number of skins in the game has grown to absurd levels. No longer will you run into a match of solo players wearing similar skins. Between regular releases of skins and special event skins involving IPs like Star Wars, Street Fighter, Marvel, and more, every player has a very unique locker full of cosmetics to bust out in a given match.

These days, it's almost more likely you'll run into a skin you've never seen before than a player using the same one as you!
