How to unlock The Flash skin in Fortnite

Over the course of Fortnite‘s history, we’ve gotten numerous licensed characters across many different franchises, including the Ghostbusters, Deadpool, Kratos from God of War, Master Chief from Halo, and more. Recently, the Barry Allen version of The Flash was added to Fortnite, along with lots of different cosmetics to acquire. However, it might not be entirely clear how to get your hands on the new gear.

In this guide, we’ll show you everything you’ll need to know about The Flash in Fortnite, including how to get the latest set of cosmetics and items.

How to get The Flash skin in Fortnite

The main thing you need to know about The Flash items is that you must buy them in-game using V-bucks. That’s right, there isn’t a way to unlock them otherwise, so hopefully, you’ve got enough currency to purchase them. When you boot into the Item Shop on February 26, 2021, you’ll see a slew of The Flash items that can be purchased, so take a look! As is the case with most Fortnite skins, these will only be available for a limited time, so you’ll need to act fast.

You can earn V-bucks by leveling up your Battle Pass. Every few levels, you’ll get 100 V-bucks at no additional cost, so you might have some lying around already. If you’re out of V-bucks, you can purchase them using real money. As always, 1,000 V-bucks equals around $8. Head to the V-bucks tab from the main menu to see the various bundles you can buy, including the following:

  • 1,000 V-bucks — $8
  • 2,800 V-bucks — $20
  • 5,000 V-bucks — $32
  • 13,500 V-bucks — $80

The Flash Bundle — 2,200 V-bucks

  • The Flash: Outfit
  • Speed Force: Back Bling
  • Speed Force Slashers: Harvesting Tool
  • Quick Bite: Emote
  • My Name is Barry Allen: Loading Screen

This is the all-encompassing bundle, featuring all five Flash items, including the outfit, a Back Bling, and other cosmetics.

  • The Flash: Outfit
  • Speed Force: Back Bling

Though, if you’re only looking for the outfit itself, this will be the most affordable option. It also includes a Back Bling.

Quick Bite — 400 V-bucks

  • Quick Bite: Emote

You can also get just the Quick Bite emote.

Speed Force Slashers — 1,200 V-bucks

  • Speed Force Slashers: Harvesting Tool

Or if you only want the Harvesting Tool, you can grab that individually, as well.

It’s unclear if these cosmetics will make their return after they leave the store today. Typically, with Fortnite cosmetics, items are gone for good when they leave the store, though there are a few exceptions to this rule. To be safe, we recommend jumping in to grab these items today if you’re interested.

Sea of Thieves alliances guide: how to join and benefits
Two ships fighting in Sea of Thieves.

There are ways in which you could play as a solo pirate in Sea of Thieves, but adventuring is so much more fun and rewarding when you're part of a crew. Once you've gotten a handle on how to play the game, taking on voyages and attacking other players with fellow pirates is where the real fun begins. Alliances make it much easier to coordinate and team up with your fellow scallywags, but how you form them and all the benefits they can provide are somewhat obfuscated. It isn't as simple as joining a party through a menu like in other games, so follow our treasure map to learn all about how alliances work in Sea of Thieves.
How to join or start an alliance

Alliances aren't made in menus, but require you to do some work in-game. Just like real pirates, alliances are determined by what flag you're flying. When you're sailing near a ship you want to partner up with, climb up your crow's nest and interact with the flag box. Go to the Alliances tab and choose the Offer Alliance flag. If the other ship is also flying that flag, you can then change your flag to the Join Alliance flag to fully form the alliance. There is no limit on how many ships can be in an alliance at once in one game.

How to fast travel in V Rising
A vampire roams a town at night in V Rising.

One of the key features of vampires, at least in their original depiction, is their ability to take the form of a bat to quickly traverse the night. In V Rising, you technically can shapeshift but it won't make a big impact on your ability to travel. You have all the normal weaknesses of the mythical creature, such as aversion to sunlight and the need to suck blood in order to survive, but you must stick to normal methods of transportation most of the time. Getting on a horse certainly speeds up your traversal, but the map is quite large and sometimes you just want to get from one side to the other quickly.

Fast travel appears in V Rising in two different ways: Waygates and Cave Passages. Both of these have their own benefits, drawbacks, and ways to unlock them. However, as you grow in power, you will need to visit the far-reaching areas of the world much faster and much more often, making fast travel invaluable. Here's how both methods of fast travel work in V Rising and where you can find them.

All Incantations and how to unlock them in Hades 2
Melinoe fighting under a full moon in Hades 2.

You can't have a game where you play as a witch without a massive cauldron. Hades 2 places one front and center in the Crossroads, but it isn't just there for decorative purposes. Melinoë can use this big boiling pot of green liquid to bring new features into the game, whether it be between runs or during them, in exchange for various materials like Silver. You will only start out with a few Incantations, but doing more runs and getting further toward your goal of killing Chronos will gradually unlock more to create. There are far more than you might expect for an early access game. Here are all the Incantations and their recipes.
Every Incantation, effect, and recipe
The order in which you unlock Incantations in the menu can vary based on what you do and how you progress in Hades 2, so this list is in no particular order. Also, it is possible there are more we haven't been able to unlock yet, so we will update this list if we discover any more or if additional ones are added during early access.
