How To Get The Synapse Skin

The Synapse Skin is back!

If you’ve been anticipating the return of the Synapse Skin in Fortnite, the wait is over! We’ve got everything you need to know about the fan favourite skin, including how you can get your hands on it today (March 12, 2021). 

The Synapse Skin hasn’t been available since 2019, and for that reason has become quite a ‘rare’ skin to see used. Many players that were already rocking the Synapse Skin likely won’t be happy about the return, as it diminishes the value of skin now that it’s available for everyone to use again.

How To Get The Synapse Skin

Unfortunately, the Synapse skin is only available for a limited amount of time, so you’ll have to be quick if you want to rock the classic skin in Fortnite. 

But how do you get it? Well, it’s quite simple. All you need to do is head to the Item Shop today (March 12, 2021) and you’ll see the Synapse Skin is available to purchase for 1,500 V-Bucks.

The skin isn’t part of a bundle so you won’t be getting any other cosmetic items with your purchase, but it is an Epic skin and a fan favourite within the community.

The Synapse Skin is part of a set, so if you see the following items appear in the Item Shop you’ll want to pick them up to have the full Synapse Set:

  • Holo-Pack (Back Bling) – Price Unknown
  • Hex Wave (Weapon Wrap) – 500 V-Bucks
