How To Unlock Spider-Man In Fortnite Chapter 2 - Season 4
Fortnite Chapter 2 - Season 4 revolves around the Nexus War. Galactus and the Black Winter threaten reality as we know it. In search of power, Galactus has invaded the Fortnite Universe in hopes of destroying our planet.
Every day more and more Marvel heroes flood in to join the fight. We'll need all the help we can get, and that now includes Peter Parker, better known as Spider-Man.
When Does The Spider-Man Skin Come Out?
Spider-Man is not yet available, but our spidey senses tell us that he'll be on his way to the Item Shop soon.
Reliable Fortnite leakers have uncovered information in the game files that pretty much confirms we'll be seeing Spider-Man in Fortnite later this season.
HYPEX, the leaker that first found out about Thor and Wolverine, discovered a Chapter 2 - Season 4 in-game achievement paired with a Spider-Man logo.
Another reputable Fortnite leaker, ShiinaBR, confirmed these findings. Not only did ShiinaBR find data suggesting Spider-Man’s arrival, but there’s also data relating to Spider-Man’s archrival, Carnage.
Spider-Man and Carnage may reunite in Fortnite.
How to Unlock Spider-Man
Unlike the other Marvel skins this season, Spider-Man will likely be an Item Shop exclusive. Spider-Man is not in the Battle Pass, and it's doubtful we'll be able to unlock him for free via gameplay or challenges. The most plausible route to unlocking Spider-Man will be spending V-Bucks.
A small number of V-Bucks are granted through both the free and the premium Battle Pass. Players not interested in spending additional money can work on saving these up. If you're in a rush, you'll have to purchase a bundle of V-Bucks from the in-game store. For those on a budget, consider buying the new Starter Pack. You'll get a bonus skin and 600 V-Bucks for just $4.
How Much Will Spider-Man Cost?
Based on Fortnite's Item Shop history, Spider-Man will probably be priced at 1,500 V-Bucks. The Silver Surfer, another featured Marvel skin, was just released in the Item Shop for this same price. Epic Games tend to follow the same pattern and keep its prices standardised. It's doubtful that Spider-Man will cost any more or less V-Bucks. This seems like a deal considering the icon that Spider-Man is.
Whenever Spider-Man does join us, it's unquestionable that he'll be available only for a limited time. Fortnite's store is constantly rotating, and these crossover skins don't receive any special treatment. The Silver Surfer Bundle was released on August 30, 2020, and has already left the Item Shop. Have your V-Bucks ready and don't hesitate if you truly desire this Scarlet Spider.
Spider-Man fans that miss out on purchasing Peter Parker's costume should not stress too much. These featured crossover skins always return at a later date. Epic Games would be tossing away money if they chose to lock them away after one appearance. The Avengers member will certainly be back. Toward the end of the season, Epic Games might even throw Spider-Man in with a bundle of other Marvel icons like the Silver Surfer. We've seen it before.
Will There be a Spider-Man Glider, Pickaxe, and Back Bling?
There has not yet been any information confirming any additional cosmetic accessories for Spider-Man. Nonetheless, there’s a very high probability that if we do get Spider-Man, he’ll have some accessories alongside him in the shop.
For now, all we can do is use our imagination. There is a lot of room for creativity when it comes to Spider-Man. Will we get a web glider? Just picture gliding through the air and shooting out webs as you transcend onto the Fortnite map.
Just like Spider-Man, the Spider-Man pickaxe, glider, and other accessories will most likely be Item Shop exclusives. Similar to the Silver Surfer and other crossover bundles, the cosmetic accessories will be purchasable separately or all together for a discounted price.
Based on what we’ve seen historically, Spider-Man’s glider and pickaxe will be purchasable individually for 800 V-Bucks each. Those interested in the whole set should opt for buying the bundle. It will cost more V-Bucks overall, but you end up saving V-Bucks in the long run.
Prepare to enter the Spider-Verse and join the other Marvel superheroes in defending the Fortnite Universe from the evil villain Galactus.
