Fortnite Fans Demand Change: Exclusive Collaboration Skins Leave Players Yearning for Accessibility Beyond Seasonal Limits

Some Fortnite enthusiasts are expressing frustration over a recurring issue involving collaboration skins that are exclusive to specific seasons. While Fortnite has continuously introduced battle passes packed with cosmetic items since its inception, players are calling for a significant change to address this particular concern.

Fortnite has always provided players with a diverse array of cosmetic items, allowing them to express their individuality. With each new season, the list of available items has grown substantially, featuring over 1,000 skins, along with numerous emotes, sprays, and weapon wraps. These items can be obtained using V-bucks in the Item Shop or earned by progressing through a Battle Pass to unlock season-exclusive gear. However, the time-limited nature of these items has left some players worried about missing out on certain collaboration skins.

A Reddit user, echoing the sentiments of other players, has raised concerns about the unavailability of specific skins. Notable characters such as Carnage, Darth Vader, Predator, and Wolverine are mentioned in their post. While collaborative skins like Batman from DC Comics, Kylo Ren from Star Wars, and Megatron from Transformers can be individually purchased, others from the same franchises are less accessible. This leaves players who did not participate in past battle passes without the chance to obtain iconic characters. While this exclusivity enhances the reward for dedicated players, those who join or return later are left without these coveted items, despite their willingness to pay for them.


The Reddit user's post includes a list of characters featured in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 4, which was dedicated to Marvel heroes. In addition to the characters mentioned earlier, the list includes Deadpool, Dr. Strange, Prowler, Spider-Man, Spider-Gwen, Aquaman, Raven, Superman, Rick Sanchez from Rick and Morty, Guggimon from Superplastic, Geralt of Rivia from The Witcher, Doom Slayer from Doom, Optimus Prime from Transformers, Eren Jaeger from Attack on Titan, and the Mandalorian from the Star Wars universe. These characters were available through various seasonal battle passes, making it necessary for players to participate in numerous seasons to collect them all.

Given Fortnite's history of breaking player records during Season OG, a significant portion of the community likely missed out on these collaboration skins. While the possibility of adding them to the shop individually seems unlikely, players speculate that Fortnite bundles or future battle passes might reintroduce these sought-after items in a new format. Despite the demand, it remains uncertain whether Epic Games plans to revisit previous Battle Pass skins.
