You can get Fortnite skins by buying Marvel comics

Fortnite and Marvel are no strangers to collaboration, so it comes as no surprise that the two properties are teaming up for a crossover comic series. What does come as a surprise is that you can get exclusive in-game cosmetics by buying issues, adding a little incentive for Fortnite players to venture into the world of comics.

FORTNITE X MARVEL: ZERO WAR #1 Trailer | Marvel Comics

Fortnite: Zero War is the new comic series that unites the worlds of Marvel and Fortnite, bringing the new cast of Fortnite‘s Chapter Three to Marvel’s comic book universe. Unlike the the in-game Fortnite crossovers where Marvel characters are thrown into the mix to become marketing icons, there’s an actual reason for the clash in the comics. But the companies haven’t left a lucrative marketing opportunity on the sidelines, as shown by the redeemable cosmetics.

All Fortnite: Zero War cosmetics:

#1 – Spider-Man-based Outfit
#2 – Iron Man-based Wrap
#3 – Wolverine-based Pickaxe
#4 – Spray based on Zero War
#5 – Loading Screen based on Zero War

The Spray and Loading Screen are exclusive to the comic. #Fortnite

By collecting first-print issues of this five-part comic series, players can redeem codes for various cosmetics that can be used in the game. These cosmetics include skins, sprays, pickaxes, loading screens, and more. There is also a final bonus outfit that comes from collecting all issues and redeeming all the previous cosmetics.

Marvel has confirmed that you don’t only have to buy physical paperback editions of the comics to unlock the exclusive cosmetics. Players can also go to the official Marvel Comics app to purchase issues of Fortnite: Zero War.

The series begins running in June and is set for monthly releases.Anyone wanting to chase down all the cosmetics within the pages should be on the lookout from then until October 2022.

Fortnite lawsuit: Are you eligible for a refund from Epic Games?

Fortnite developer Epic Games is being hit with $520 million in fines by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) for violating the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act and there's a chance that you could get a payout.

Out of that $520 million total, $245 million is set to be refunded to customers. Refunds are meant to go to those affected by the company's billing and refund practices -- mainly players (and parents of younger players) who were charged for unwanted cosmetics and were met with account locks if they tried to dispute the charges with their credit card companies.

You can still get a Thunder Shotgun in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2. Here’s how
Fortnite characters in a city.

Fortnite has received plenty of exciting new weapons in Chapter 4 Season 2, and in typical fashion, Epic has also vaulted some of last season's weapons to clean up the loot pool. Among the weapons vaulted for Season 2 is the Thunder Shotgun -- but weirdly, it can still be obtained, as it appears Epic possibly overlooked one NPC who drops it.

Anyone who wants to score the Thunder Shotgun in Season 2 can head over to Frenzy Fields and look for the NPC named Sunflower who walks around the farm. Simply eliminate her and pick up the weapon she drops. It's unclear if this is actually something Epic missed, or if the team just simply didn't want to bother changing up Sunflower's loot drops. Either way, it's currently the only way to obtain the Thunder Shotgun.
