Looking to celebrate Argentina's 2022 World Cup win in Fortnite? You might be wondering if there's a Messi skin up for grabs.

Lionel Messi has cemented himself as one of the greatest footballers of all time, highlighted particularly by Argentina's win at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. Having been a staple addition to FIFA games for almost two decades, the Argentine footballer has even made the crossover into other titles. Most recently, Messi received his own skin in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2.

But what about Fortnite? A game that has become synonymous with pop culture crossovers and skins.

How to Get Messi in Fortnite

Surprisingly, Lionel Messi does not currently have a skin in Fortnite. However, the game does have a number of football and World Cup-themed Outfits and cosmetics in the Item Shop, including:

  • Top Trophy Back Bling - 400 V-Bucks
  • Mighty Midfielder Outfit - 1,500 V-Bucks
  • Fan Fervor Emote - 200 V-Bucks
  • Champions of the Pitch Bundle - 2,500 V-Bucks

Other class-A footballers have received skins in the past, including Brazilian football player Neymar Jr, England's Harry Kane and Germany's Marco Reus.

While Messi might be missing from the Fortnite island for now, it wouldn't be too far-fetched to expect Epic Games to consider it in the future.
