How to get the T-800 and Sarah Connor skins in Fortnite

The latest licensed characters to be implemented into Fortnite are Sarah Connor and the T-800 from The Terminator series. These characters have become available just shortly after the implementation of The Predator, which you can also acquire right now. Though, The Terminator skins are handled differently in terms of acquiring them in-game. With that in mind, you might be wondering how to get the new Sarah Connor and the T-800 character skins.

In this guide, we’ll show you everything you’ll need to know about obtaining the Sarah Connor and the T-800 skins and their cosmetics in Fortnite.

Unlike the recent Predator skin, the only way to obtain Sarah Connor and the T-800 cosmetics is to purchase them with V-bucks. Starting on January 21, 2021, the characters have been made available to buy from within Fortnite’s item shop. When you boot up the game, you’ll encounter a new Terminator-themed cutscene to celebrate the characters. These skins are only available for a limited time so act quickly if you want to get your hands on them. There are multiple Terminator bundles ranging from individual skins to Back Bling cosmetics and more.

Remember, V-bucks are the currency used in Fortnite and can be earned by leveling up the Battle Pass, or by purchasing with real money. If you still have V-bucks lying around from earlier in the season or from a previous one, you’ll be able to put them toward the purchase of the new Terminator skins. Otherwise, you’ll have to fork out real cash. Keep in mind, 1,000 V-bucks is equal to around $8.

Below are the various Terminator bundles you can buy.

Future War Bundle — 2,800 V-bucks

  • T-800 — Outfit
  • HK Skynet Uplink — Back Bling
  • Combat Knife — Harvesting Tool
  • Techno-Grip Axe — Harvesting Tool
  • Cyberdyne Salute — Emote

This bundle will give you the most bang for your buck and costs 2,800 V-bucks. It comes with everything available as part of the Terminator set, including both skins, Back Bling cosmetics, and Harvesting Tools. Though, if you’re only wanting one individual character, there are other options.

If you just want Sarah Connor, this is the least expensive option for you. It’ll come with Connor herself, a Back Bling, and Harvesting Tool for 1,800 V-bucks.

T-800 — 1,500 V-bucks

  • T-800 — Outfit
  • HK Skynet Uplink — Back Bling

The same goes for the T-800. This one is a little less expensive at 1,500 V-bucks since it only comes with the skin and a Back Bling.

Techno-Grip Axe — 800 V-bucks

  • Techno-Grip Axe — Harvesting Tool

Or if you just want the Techno-Grip Axe Harvesting Tool, this can be yours for 800 V-bucks.

Cyberdyne Salute — 300 V-bucks

  • Cyberdyne Salute — Emote

Finally, you can grab the stand-alone Cyberdyne Salute emote for 300 V-bucks.

As with most skins, these are only available for a limited time, and it’s unclear if they’ll make a reappearance like some skins have in the past. To be safe, it’s best to grab them while you can.

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.
