Fortnite: How To Unlock The Flash Skin For Free

Fortnite is once again teaming up with DC following Batman, Aquaman and others with the arrival of the Flash skin this February. Before then, though, players have a chance to earn Flash for free.

Just like the Hearts Wild Cup, which takes place the day before, players will be able to compete to earn the Flash skin for free, along with another cosmetic, while playing as part of a duo three days before it’s available elsewhere.

Here’s everything you need to know about The Flash coming to Fortnite.


When Does The Flash Cup Take Place?

Fortnite’s Flash Cup takes place on February 10th, 2021. Be sure to check in on the Competitive section in-game on the day itself to check for start times as they are subject to change and vary per region. You must be playing with someone else as a duo to take part, just like the previous tournament.

Will The Flash Skin Come To The Item Shop?

Yes, February 13th at 7 PM ET, to be exact. Bit of a random date for them to arrive in the game considering it’s around Valentine’s Day, but Epic don’t tend to make conventional sense with these crossovers.

Here’s what in the Flash set in full:

– The Flash Outfit
– The Speed Force Slashers Pickaxe
– The Speed Force Back Bling
– The Quick Bite Emote

As for the cost, based on other superhero skins in the past, the actual Flash outfit will likely cost around 1,500 V-Bucks to purchase with a full bundle setting you back roughly 2,800 V-Bucks, Pickaxe, emote and pickaxe included.

Fortnite is free-to-play on PC via the Epic Games Store, PS5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Android.
