Fortnite’s Avengers: Endgame Crossover Adds Cool Black Widow Skin, But Only For Today

Fortnite’s 8.50 update is now live across PS4, Xbox One, PC, Switch, and mobile devices, kicking off the game’s highly anticipated Avengers: Endgame limited-time event. That isn’t the extent of the crossover, however. Epic has also introduced an assortment of new Avengers-inspired cosmetics to the battle royale game, including a cool skin based on Black Widow.

The Black Widow outfit, which you can see below, is available for purchase now from Fortnite’s in-game store. It costs 1,500 V-Bucks and comes in two variants: one with red hair, and one with blonde. It also includes a matching Back Bling. On top of that, Epic is selling a Widow’s Bite harvesting tool skin for 800 V-Bucks, as well as a Widow’s Pirouette emote for 200.

If you’re interested in adding the Black Widow outfit to your wardrobe, you’ll need to act quickly; the skin will only be available from the Fortnite store until 5 PM PT / 8 PM ET. There’s also no telling if it’ll cycle back in at some point in the future, so if you’d like it, you only have a few hours to pick it up. However, Epic has teased that there will be other Avengers outfits in the game, with the second set going on sale «early next week.»

Meanwhile, the Fortnite Endgame LTM will run through to the end of Season 8. This special mode has players either siding with Thanos and his Chitauri Invaders or the Heroes trying to stop them. Those on Team Thanos must find the six Infinity Stones scattered around the island in order to power up the mad titan, while players on the Heroes’ side will need to find the Avengers’ iconic weapons and wield them against the villains. There’s also a set of Fortnite Endgame challenges to complete, which will unlock more Avengers-inspired cosmetics.

On top of all that, Week 9’s challenges are also live in Fortnite, which means we’re quickly nearing the end of Season 8. That also means you only have a little more time to complete any outstanding challenges from this season and unlock the remaining Battle Pass rewards. If you need any help, we’ve rounded up tips for the trickier tasks in our complete Season 8 challenges guide.
