A skin based on the CW Flash is coming to Fortnite. This is how fans can get their hands on the Speedster cosmetic set.
Popular battle royale Fortnite little by little it has become one of the greatest pieces of cross media in history. There has been a steady stream of character-based skins from movies, video games, TV shows, and comics, and one of the most recent additions is The Predator. Marvel and DC characters have been one of the most frequent faces to appear in the game, making the next Flash addition to Fortnite a pleasant inevitability.
Like the Arrow skin, Fortnite‘s Flash is based on the CW Flash series, specifically the redesign of the fourth season of Barry Allen’s suit. The skin will be added to the Item Shop on February 13, but players can unlock the Flash skin earlier, as well as a pickaxe, back bling, and Flash-themed emote.

There will be two main ways for players to get their hands on the CW Flash skin. The first is to participate in the Flash Cup on February 10, which will give winners access to both the Flash mask and Speed Force cosmetic before its official launch. The Cup is a duos tournament, in which the team that performs best in a set of 10 matches receives the Flash mask and cosmetic. Each region will have its own group of winners.
Players must be level 30 or higher and have two-factor authentication enabled in order to compete in this limited-time tournament. The Flash Cup will only be live for three hours, with specific times for each time zone visible in the game. For those who missed the Flash Cup window to participate, the Flash skin can still be purchased from the Item Shop on February 13.
When added to the Item Shop, the skin will actually be part of a larger pack of Flash-themed items. As part of the Flash set, players can expect to get their hands on a Speed Force Slashers pickaxe and Quick Bite emote, as well as the Speed Force-themed back bling cosmetic. The pickaxe and back bling are styled after the Flash lightning bolt logo, and the emote sees the player use Speed Force to grab a snack.
Items in the flash set, like other sets, will be sold separately from each other. The prices of each of the items in the collection are currently unknown. Players can expect the skin to cost 1500 V-Bucks, which is the usual price for skins in Fortnitearticle Shop. Cosmetic items could cost anywhere from 500 to 800 V-Bucks, although exact prices will be available when the set officially launches on February 13.
