The Batman Who Laughs Is the Creepiest Batman Skin in Fortnite Yet

by in Fortnite | Oct, 26th 2021

Fortnite is introducing a new skin for players to check out and it is yet another crossover one in the ever-growing line of Batman skins offered. The latest one is the Batman Who Laughs Fortnite skin, one of the most interesting and terrifying skins in the game ever.

The Batman Who Laughs Fortnite Skin Is Now Available

The Batman Who Laughs Fortnite skin is available right now by the time you are reading this and only for a limited time. There is only one way that players will be able to get this new skin and that is by making sure to hit up the item shop while it is still available in the battle royale game. 

Epic Games has not yet revealed how long the Batman Who Laughs Fortnite skin will be in the item shop, so it is highly recommended that any interested players check it out before the skin has a chance to leave the store. This latest crossover Batman character is also only available for purchase there outside of another method. 

You will need to spend some V-Bucks, or potentially real-world money if you are out of the Fortnite virtual currency if you would like to claim this latest DC Comics crossover character for your cosmetics locker. This is a great skin that looks quite a lot like its comic book counterpart. 

The popular and still relatively new comic book version of Batman is one of the most insane and horrifying to date. Without a doubt, far removed from the other Batman skins in Fortnite, this is one that collectors and Batman fans will likely want to check out and think about collecting. 

How to Get the Skin in the Item Shop

The Batman Who Laughs Fortnite skin is only available in the item shop and through a special promotion that is going on right now. If you opt for the item shop method, you will have the option to purchase the character in the game and start using them right away in matches. 

When it comes to buying the character in the item shop, you can get the Batman Who Laughs Fortnite skin on its own or a special bundle with some other items that are themed around the character, depending on your preference about the items. 

If you were to purchase the crossover Batman Who Laughs Fortnite skin in the item shop, you would be paying 1500 V-Bucks to get it. This is just the skin itself with the maniacal character in all of his glory, but you would not get any extra items that are part of the same set. 

In addition to the Batman Who Laughs Fortnite skin, players can also pick up the Wings of Madness glider that looks fantastic and the Death Metal Scythe pickaxe. These items are also available in the item shop right now for only 800 V-Bucks each, or 1600 altogether. 

That means that if you wanted all three items individually, you would be looking at around 3100 V-Bucks to purchase them all, which is quite expensive. Fortunately, the Batman Who Laughs Fortnite skin bundle comes with all three of them together for a much lower price. 

You can get the special Batman skin plus the glider and pickaxe for only 2200 V-Bucks, saving you a good bit of money. In all honesty, if you plan to get the new Batman crossover skin and even one of the other themed items, you might as well get the bundle at this point, in our opinion. 

How to Get the Skin Via the Comics

This is because it not only saves you a good bit of money in the long run, but it also comes with the special themed Batman back bling item too. There is an alternative way of getting the Batman Who Laughs Fortnite skin, though, and it has to do with some real-world actions. 

If you purchase the latest issue in the Fortnite and Batman crossover comic books, you will be able to receive a code for the new skin in the battle royale game that will save you money overall. Comic books are typically only a few dollars in price, so you get the skin and a nice story in a great deal. 

This latest issue is known as Fortnite: Foundation #1 and is the first copy that shows Batman from the DC Universe throwing hands with The Foundation, one of the original characters in the Fortnite lore who may or may not be the real world celebrity The Rock. 

Who Is The Batman Who Laughs?

The Batman Who Laughs is a version of Bruce Wayne from the Earth-22 universe first introduced in September 2017 in the Dark Days: The Casting #1 comic book issue. His origin is largely similar to the Batman we know and love, but with some twists. 

Essentially, in the craziness of the Joker of that universe, he was able to go after Batman, drive him mad, break him, and infect him with the same toxin that infected Joker, thus eventually creating a madman version of Batman, a hybrid between Batman and his most notable enemy. 

From there, the comics go wild with the Batman Who Laughs going on to do some horrific deeds that will certainly make even the Joker look like an innocent child in comparison. This culminated in a clash with Earth 0 and Earth superheroes that we know quite well in the comics. Over the last few years, this Batman version has become quite popular, making it no surprise that he is now in Fortnite, too.
