How to Unlock the Fortnite NBA Skins
A lot of cosmetics in Fortnite are available by purchasing and leveling up the season’s Battle Pass. The new NBA skins, however, are instead purchased from the game store. To find the store, tab over to the right four times from the Play menu to access the Item Shop.
Players should look for the “In the Paint” item set. This new collection of skins features 31 game uniforms, including one from each team in the NBA. It’s an impressive collection, and literally has something for every fan of the NBA. If accessories and emotes are more interesting, then make sure to pick up the “Shoot & Score Pack” to snag the Hookshot Emote and the Mini Hoop Back Bling. This special new back bling can be set to display the logo of any team in the NBA. It’s possible to buy the Dribblin’ traversal Emote as well. This emote has characters doing exactly what the name of the emote suggests.
Not long after the launch of all of this new themed content comes two special player lockers. Selected by Donovan Mitchell and Trae Young, these selections of cosmetics will show up in the item shop for players to enjoy. Each feature emotes, back bling, harvesting tools, and wraps, and give players a sense of the style of these two incredible basketball stars.
Fortnite has seen a lot of crossovers in its history. The NBA making an appearance feels right in line with Epic’s ability to tap into the exciting pop culture and sports trends that are driving the internet wild. With the NBA Playoffs right around the corner, there has never been a better time to introduce basketball to the wild world of Fortnite’s Battle Royale mode.
