How to get the X-23 skin in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 4

Logan aka Wolverine has been in Fortnite since Chapter 2 Season 4. This is an exclusive Battle Pass cosmetic. That said, he’s not the only version of the character in the game. Wolverine Zero was recently added to the game in Chapter 3 Season 3.

Now, MCU and Epic have decided to introduce another self-healing mutant into the game, who happens to be Wolverine’s daughter. X-23 will debut in Fortnite in a few hours and will be added to the Item Shop shortly after.

To cut to the chase, X-23 will primarily be available to players through the Item Shop. They will need to spend V-Bucks to get the skin and all associated cosmetics. According to leaks, the bundle will include a Back Bling, a Harvesting Tool, and a Wrap.

However, it looks like some content creators will get the skin for free a few hours before its release. This is done for promotional purposes so creators can get a head start on creating content using the new skin.

The skin is scheduled to go live on October 9, 2022. It will be added after the Item Shop refreshes at 8:00 PM ET on the given day. At the moment, there is no leaked image of the skin, so it is unknown which version of X-23 will be added to the game. Since the developers usually keep the skins faithful to their original representations in the MCU fans need not worry.


How much will the X-23 skin cost and will it be worth the price?

Based on past collaborations with MCU, the price of the X-23 skin with its cosmetics should drop to less than 2,000 V-Bucks. Cosmetic items may be split into two parts, depending on how many of them are included.

A part will only contain the main skin so that it can be purchased without the other items at a lower price than the full pack. However, since the related cosmetic items complete the set, it’s best to buy them all while they’re available in the Fortnite Item Shop.

Moving on to the value proposition of the bundle, it’s hard to say right now if it’ll be worth your V-bucks. However, since X-23 debuted alongside Wolverine in the 2017 film Loganfans already have a certain degree of attachment to the skin.

While it’s true that nothing concrete can be said about value until the cosmetics are cracked, diehard fans will no doubt want to round out their Marvel series collection by adding X-23 to their locker. The latest Marvel skins have been highly praised, so we can keep our hopes up even though we don’t have any visual aids or benchmarks for how the skin will look in-game yet.

Over the next few hours, leakers should decipher the skin and provide a first-hand look at X-23 in Fortnite.
