Fortnite Daredevil Skin Arrives as Part of the Marvel Knockout Series
Epic Games has finally made good on announcing more esports events for Fortnite players to compete in. The latest one is the Marvel Knockout Super Series that takes full advantage of the current season. As part of this, players will be able to get the new Fortnite Daredevil skin.
Fortnite Daredevil Skin Announced Alongside Marvel Knockout Super Series
The Fortnite Daredevil skin was announced recently by Epic Games alongside the esports tournament series Marvel Knockout, an interesting series of tournaments that we have never seen before in Fortnite.
That is because it is the first one we have ever seen where the entire series is based on a crossover event with another property. This tournament series focuses on Marvel, and the limited-time mode that Fortnite has that is focused on superheroes this season.
This is the first time we have seen such a major tournament series like the Marvel Knockout Super Series centered around a single game mode that isn’t even a permanent part of the lineup. This intriguing series will be unique and awesome for its rewards.
One major reward that is part of the Marvel Knockout Super Series is the new Fortnite Daredevil skin. Daredevil will make his long-awaited debut in the battle royale title in a unique way that we haven’t seen before as one of the rewards for the upcoming Marvel Knockout Super Series.
What the Marvel Knockout Super Series Is
But what is the new Marvel Knockout Super Series? It is a series of tournaments that will focus on the Marvel Knockout game mode in Fortnite right now. This is the limited-time game mode that will likely stick around until the end of the current Season 4.
For some reason, Epic Games is building an entire tournament series around this game mode in which players are put on teams of two or three and set in a tournament bracket. The teams will battle it out against one another, moving through the tournament ranks or getting eliminated depending on their performance.
The catch is that it is Marvel-themed like Season 4, so players will have access to the superhero powers that have been released in the game thus far. Now, the Marvel Knockout Super Series takes advantage of that game mode and makes a formal tournament out of it.
There will be four cups in the Super Series, leading up to a final $1 million tournament that will conclude the Super Series on Nov. 21. That is a lot of money for a random Marvel-themed tournament, so players might want to check it out.
How to Get the Fortnite Daredevil Skin
But the million dollars isn’t the only prize pool that is on the line as part of the Marvel Knockout Super Series. Each of the four cups will likely focus on a different superhero, with the first one this week and focusing on Daredevil. As part of the event, participants will be able to get the Fortnite Daredevil skin.
It will all begin with the Daredevil Cup this Wednesday, Oct. 14, where the top teams in each region will earn the Daredevil skin for free. It works because, in each region, only a certain number of teams will get the Daredevil skin for free.
It varies from region to region, but the European region will only give it out to the top 800 teams. Meanwhile, North America East will give it to the top 500 teams. The West will include only the top 200 teams. Brazil will also have only the top 200 teams.
For Asia, Oceania, and the Middle East, those three regions will only give it to the top 100 teams. So, if you are looking to get this new Fortnite Daredevil skin, you are going to have to place pretty high on the leaderboard for the upcoming Daredevil Cup.
Thankfully, this is only one way to get the new Fortnite Daredevil skin. The other way is to purchase it from the item shop. Though a date hasn’t been set, Epic Games noted that those top teams would access the skin before it launches in the item shop.
If you don’t want to participate in the event or don’t reach one of the top positions, you can buy it in the item shop in the future. Meanwhile, everyone who participates in the Marvel Knockout Super Series in all four events will receive the Nexus War glider.
As for the other three tournaments that will happen as part of this series, don’t expect them too soon. All three of them will happen in November, despite the finals being on Nov. 21. This tells us that they will likely be back-to-back in that month.
It remains to be seen if those three other tournaments will focus on Marvel superheroes as well. That could mean that three other superheroes will join the game as skins soon like the rumored Captain Marvel one. It could also mean that Season 4 will go past its original end date and last until at least Nov. 21.
That would put it in overtime once again after Season 3 came to a sudden end earlier this year. We are currently in Week 8 of Fortnite, so it should only have three weeks left, but this could mean that we are in for a bit of a longer season this time around.
