A Fortnite x TMNT Shredder skin leaked, hinting at the next mainstream collaboration coming to Epic Games' Battle Royale.
Fortnite Winterfest 2023 brought several holiday-themed cosmetics and items to Fortnite, but ironically, the best release of the event had nothing to do with the Christmas season. Instead, Epic Games finally added the highly anticipated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle skins to the Item Shop, giving fans the chance to purchase Leonardo, Raphael, Michelangelo, Donatello, and April O'Neil. Now, it looks like another crossover is in the works as new leaks revealed a Shredder skin.
Here's everything we know about the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Part 2 event in Fortnite, including our first look at the Shredder skin.
Fortnite x TMNT Shredder Skin Leaked
The Fortnite x TMNT Shredder skin leaked ahead of a rumored second collaboration in Epic Games' Battle Royale. Check out the first image of the skin posted by reliable Fortnite leaker, iFireMonkey, below.
Although the previous Fortnite x TMNT skins were all available for purchase in the Item Shop, new leaks suggest the Shredder skin could be part of a special TMNT Battle Pass. Fortnite leaker, ShiinaBR, revealed the upcoming crossover features an event tab, which typically comes with a limited-time Battle Pass, similar to the Jujutsu Kaisen Pass.
The leaker also claims the collaboration will have special quests, an in-game location, and TMNT weapons and Augments. Of course, Reality Augments have yet to make their Chapter 5 Season 1 debut, so the in-game perks could drop alongside the collaboration.
When is Shredder Coming to Fortnite?
Although Epic Games has not confirmed exactly when Shredder is coming to Fortnite, the iconic character will likely arrive in one of the remaining Chapter 5 Season 1 updates. According to ShiinaBR, the Fortnite Underground update schedule is as follows:
- v28.20: February 6
- v28.30: February 20
Therefore, fans can expect Shredder to launch in Fortnite within the next month. At the earliest, the in-game event will drop on Feb. 6, 2024.
