How to unlock the Daryl Dixon and Michonne skins in Fortnite

Over the course of its life cycle, Fortnite has been home to a wide variety of memorable characters, including Deadpool, Master Chief, and Kratos. Joining the impressive lineup are Daryl Dixon and Michonne from The Walking Dead. This duo of characters was originally announced during The Game Awards 2020, and are finally available to all players now.

However, it might not be entirely clear how to obtain them. Luckily, we’re here to help with that. In this guide, we’ll show you everything you’ll need to know about obtaining the Daryl Dixon and Michonne skins in Fortnite.

  • Daryl Dixon — Outfit
  • Hunting Quiver — Back Bling
  • Daryl’s Knives — Harvesting Tool

As with most Fortnite skins, you must purchase them using V-bucks, which serve as the game’s currency. Luckily, you can unlock V-bucks by leveling up your Battle Pass. Every six or seven levels, the game awards you with 100 V-bucks for free. Otherwise, if you don’t have enough, you’ll need to purchase V-bucks using real money. Remember, 2,800 V-bucks is equal to around $20.

In the case of Daryl Dixon and Michonne, the best option to acquire both of them is the Survivors in Arms bundle, which comes with both outfits, one additional style each, one Back Bling each, and both of the character’s Harvesting Tools. Based on the countdown timer, it appears like this set will only be available today, December 17, 2020, and might be the only chance you have to get them. Sometimes, however, at the end of a season, Epic Games re-releases characters that you can purchase if you might’ve missed them earlier on. That might be the case with these two skins, though it hasn’t been officially announced.

If you’re looking for just one or the other, you’ll want to purchase them individually for 1,800 V-bucks. Each will come with their Back Bling and Harvesting Tool, along with their additional style. Though, if you want both characters, you should just buy the bundle.

Michonne — 1,800 V-bucks

This pack is available for those who just want the Michonne skin.

Remember, these skins are simply cosmetic and have no impact on the gameplay. The same is true for the Back Bling and Harvesting Tool. Fortnite’s season 5 just started and has already included several iconic characters, leaving many to believe we’ll see even more later on. We got Master Chief from Halo representing Xbox, and Kratos from God of War representing PlayStation. Will we see a famous Nintendo character appear, as well?

All vehicle mods in Fortnite and how to use them
Madmax characters in Fortnite.

Vehicles have gotten a major upgrade in Fortnite with Chapter 5, Season 3. Instead of simply being a great way to get around the map faster, and occasionally run over an unlucky opponent, you can now add mods to your cars to turn them into deadly weapons. Since this season's entire theme is centered around vehicular combat, you will be left in the dust if you don't learn how to fully take advantage of all the new ways to kit out your ride. Thankfully, modifying your vehicle is much easier in Fortnite than in real life, so let us give you the rundown on all the vehicle mods and how they work.
All vehicle mods and how they work
Modding a vehicle in Fortnite is so simple you may even do it by accident the first time around. While you're driving around the map, keep your eyes peeled for the vehicle mod crates lying around. These will have some text above them telling you which mod they are. Once you spot one, simply run it over to install that mod on your current car. You can also pick them up on foot and throw them at a vehicle to equip them that way.

Each vehicle can only have one mod per slot, and not all vehicles have the same number of slots. The SUV, for example, can equip any mod, but a dirt bike obviously can't use one that uses the roof slot. Here are all the mods currently in Fortnite.

Fortnite Chapter 5, Season 3 is out now and offers way more Mad Max than Fallout

The new season of Fortnite has begun, bringing players to a Mad Max- and Fallout-style wasteland full of ridiculous vehicle features and new items, including a War Bus you can work to control.

The "story" of Fortnite Chapter 5, Season 3, which is out now, revolves around a huge sandstorm has swept over the battle royale island. This has ushered in the "Wasteland Warriors," who rode in with the storm and transformed the south of the map with new locations. One is the Brutal Beachhead, a beached ship with what looks like a huge bitemark in the front.

Epic Games just teased a Fallout and Fortnite crossover

With Fallout being everywhere right now, it's only fair that it joins Fortnite, too. Epic Games teased on X (formerly Twitter) on Friday that the iconic open-world RPG series will be coming to Fortnite.

While there aren't any public details yet on what will be offered during this collaboration, we can expect some Fallout-themed weapons and some skins. Maybe a vault dweller suit or some power armor? Since Epic put a thumbs-up emoji in the caption, it's safe to assume that Vault Boy will be involved.
