Fortnite developer Epic Games officially revealed that a Green Arrow skin

Fortnite developer Epic Games officially revealed that a Green Arrow skin will join the popular free-to-play video game at the end of the month. The skin isn’t much of a surprise, however, as it previously leaked, but the fact that it is specifically part of the monthly Fortnite Crew subscription is truly news. It is also fairly interesting that, for the Green Arrow skin, the developer specifically went with the look most associated with The CW’s television show Arrow.

Fortnite Crew, if you are not familiar, is a relatively new monthly subscription service that Fortnite offers. Interested folks can sign up for $11.99 per month, and they receive a full Crew Pack for the month which includes a special Back Bling and Pickaxe themed appropriately to the month’s skin. Additionally, Fortnite Crew grants 1,000 V-Bucks per month and access to the current Battle Pass.

Never let the city down 🏹

The Arrow-inspired Green Arrow look is set to join the video game as part of January’s Fortnite Crew Pack on December 31st at 7PM ET/4PM PT. Fortnite itself recently launched Chapter 2 – Season 5 after a world-shaking Galactus live event at the end of the last season. The gameitself is currently available on most major platforms, but the iOS version, specifically, has hit a snag after Epic Games intentionally set off a chain of events that caused it to be removed from the App Store. The legal fight over that decision v bucks generator is ongoing, but the short version is: nobody’s playing Chapter 2 – Season 5 on an iPhone right now. Fortnite Chapter 2 – Season 5 is currently ongoing on the other platforms, however. You can check out all of our previous coverage of Fortnite right here.

How to get the Black Panther skin and others

We’re well into Fortnite season 5, and I thought we left all those Marvel characters behind. What a fool I was. New leaks from longtime Fortnite data miners like ShiinaBR and Guille_GAG show that Fortnite skins are coming for Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Green Arrow, Taskmaster, and possibly more.

ShiinaBR and Guille took to Twitter to show off the leaked skins.

Here’s Captain Marvel, looking appropriately heroic in a floating stance.

Here’s Green Arrow, who ended his run on CW early last year. According to ShiinaBR, Green Arrow is next month’s Fortnite Crew skin.RECOMMENDED VIDEOS FOR YOU…

Here’s Taskmaster, who’s featured as the main antagonist in the upcoming Black Widow movie, whenever that actually releases. They’re definitely a little more comic book-looking than their film counterpart.

According to ShiinaBR, all of these Marvel skins will be included in a bundle dubbed the “Marvel: Royalty and Warriors Pack.” The bundle will be accompanied by some text reading: “Warriors can be formed for any reason, whether it be a king’s responsibility, a soldier’s duty or a hired gun’s price.”

It’s pretty obvious why Epic v bucks generator decided to just now release the Black Panther skin. With actor Chadwick Boseman’s death last August, it obviously would have been inappropriate to sell a skin based on his character so soon. Epic opted for adding the “Panther’s Prowl” location, which features the immense panther statue from the film.

Judging from what we know so far, it appears the Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Taskmaster, and Green Arrow skins will be available for purchase in that “Royalty and Warriors” pack. It’s unclear just how much that will cost players, though.

It’s also unclear if any skins besides Green Arrow will be included in the Fortnite Crew subscription service. If you ask me, if Epic wanted to make a billion dollars in five minutes, all they’d need to do is add Black Panther to Fortnite Crew and watch the subscription money roll in.

Odds are though that most of these Marvel skins will also be available for individual purchase anyway. We’ll make sure to update this page as soon as more information drops.

Don’t forget to check out our other Fortnite guides and news for all the latest on season 5. Epic has recently added a new limited-time mode that’s totally an Among Us riff. You can also grab Master Chief or the upcoming Walking Dead skins, too.

The Dragon’s Breath is arguably the weakest shotgun in the game.

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 introduced many things into the game. However, players have been losing their minds over some of the new shotguns, and more specifically, what they’ve been able to do with them.

The Dragon’s Breath is arguably the weakest shotgun in the game. It’s technically a pistol that shoots like a double-barrel shotgun. It looks cool, deals decent damage, and has some interesting tricks, but the slow reload speed, and limited magazine size let it down. 

The Dub, on the other hand, v buck generator is a rework of an old classic. It’s a proper double-barrel shotgun with an impressive knockback effect. However, players won’t see too many of them anytime soon.

The Dragon’s Breath is one of the new weapons introduced in Fortnite Season 5.

The Dub is one of the new Exotic weapons that can only be bought from an NPC. It also has a high price. So, it’ll take some time before Fortnite players can actually afford it. But it’ll definitely be a popular choice, especially due to one incredible feature (or glitch).

The Dub is special in the sense that it isn’t affected by the shotgun cooldown timer. For those who don’t know, it was added early in Fortnite Chapter 1 to address the ‘Double Pump’ and ‘Pump-Tac’ meta.

It can be used alongside a Tac or Charge without affecting the delay. YouTubers like OramgeGuy have been using it to their heart’s desire. Here’s his quick explanation on how to do it.

It’s hard to tell whether it’s an intended feature or a glitch. The consensus leans towards the latter since it doesn’t happen with the Dragon’s Breath, even though it could really benefit from it.

Either way, Epic Games will probably address it sometime soon. If it’s a glitch, it’s only a matter of time before they fix it. 

However, if it’s an intended feature, they’ll surely talk about it in more detail.
