Rumors of New Wolverine Weapon X Skin Coming to Fortnite

Reliable insiders are reporting that Fortnite will soon introduce a new X-Men skin based on Wolverine’s iconic Weapon X appearance. Fortnite has a history of featuring special guest character skins and items from popular Disney franchises like Marvel and Star Wars. One of the latest crossovers includes Captain Jack Sparrow and other characters from Pirates of the Caribbean. Marvel characters have been a significant part of Fortnite since Season 8, which saw the introduction of Black Widow and Star-Lord.

Marvel Characters in Fortnite

Over the years, Fortnite has added numerous Marvel heroes and villains, with the X-Men getting considerable attention. Skins for characters like Gambit, Rogue, Mystique, and Magneto (in a new Wastelander costume) have been introduced. Wolverine, one of the most famous X-Men, was first brought into Fortnite during Chapter 2, Season 4, in 2020. He has several outfits available, including his classic yellow-and-blue and orange-and-brown costumes from the comics, a casual look with a white tank top and jeans from the Fox-produced X-Men movies, and the eye-patch-wearing, sword-wielding "Wolverine Zero" variant.

Upcoming Weapon X Skin

Recent rumors suggest that Epic Games is adding Wolverine’s infamous Weapon X outfit to its expanding list of Marvel skins. Prominent Fortnite leaker Shiina believes this new skin could arrive as early as July 5. The Weapon X skin is expected to be part of a set of five unlockable cosmetic items, though the specifics of the additional items remain unclear. Another leaker, HYPEX, suggests the Weapon X skin might be available even earlier, with potential release dates between June 28 and July 2.

Weapon X Wolverine Skin Possible Release Dates

The Weapon X outfit is one of Wolverine’s most notable looks, rooted in his origins as a government experiment designed to create the perfect killing machine with a skeleton infused with Adamantium and feral instincts. This storyline has been revisited in several movies and video games, and the look itself has appeared as an alternate costume in games like X-Men Legends and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3.

Future Crossovers

Shiina and HYPEX caution that the rumored release dates for the Wolverine Weapon X skin could change, but both believe it will be available early next month. Additionally, there are rumors of other Fortnite/Marvel crossovers, including the possible return of the planet-devouring Galactus in Chapter 5, Season 4. However, none of these details have been officially confirmed by Epic Games at this time.
