As Fortnitemares 2023 unfolds, fans want to know how to get Jack Skellington in Fortnite.

Fortnitemares 2023 is Fortnite's annual Halloween celebration that turns the island into a spooky playground. With a new Battle Bus, themed quests, and Halloween-inspired weapons, like the Pumpkin Launcher, Epic Games' event brings the holiday straight to their Battle Royale.

The major update takes over the Item Shop as well. Some of the best Fortnitemares skins are back for another year, along with a few new options straight from the Fortnite universe. Plus, three new crossovers are coming soon, including Jack Skellington.

Here's how to get Jack Skellington in Fortnite.

How to Get Jack Skellington in Fortnite

To get Jack Skellington in Fortnite, players must purchase "The Pumpkin King" Bundle from the Item Shop once it releases.

The Bundle includes the following items:

  • Jack Skellington Skin
  • Santa Jack Alt Style
  • Zero Back Bling
  • Peppermint Parasol Pickaxe
  • Jack's Sled Glider
  • Jack's Scary Face Emote
  • Lock, Shock and Barrel's Tub Emote

"The Pumpkin King" Bundle is the only new Fortnitemares 2023 set that comes with two skins, so expect the price to be a bit higher than the Michael Myers and Alan Wake Bundles.

When is Jack Skellington Coming to Fortnite?

Jack Skellington is likely coming to Fortnite on Oct. 20, 2023. Although Epic Games has not confirmed the exact date just yet, we know the Jack Skellington skin will be the first available Halloween crossover skin in the Item Shop.

Fortnitemares 2023 has already been live for a week, so expect Epic Games to start dropping their highly anticipated skins as early as this Friday.

When Does Fortnitemares 2023 End?

Fortnitemares 2023 ends on Nov. 3, 2023, at 2 a.m. ET. Fans have the rest of October to get Jack Skellington, along with Michael Myers and Alan Wake, until they disappear from the Item Shop, likely until next Halloween.

The end of the Halloween event also marks the end of Chapter 4 Season 4. The next major Fortnite update will be Chapter 4 Season 5. What was once rumored to be a LEGO season is now all-but confirmed to feature a rotation of OG maps thanks to Kado Thorne's Time Machine.
