Since its debut last February, the Red Knight skin has long been one of the rarest and most desired skins in Fortnite‘s free-to-play battle royale mode. However, months after its initial debut and departure from the game, and Epic has revived the Red Knight skin, which is available to purchase now for 2,000 V-Bucks.
Unfortunately, the Red Knight skin in Fortnite is missing its back bling Red Shield at the time of this writing, but Epic is aware of the issue and is working to fix it. In the meantime, players who want to complete their Red Knight outfit will need to shell out an additional 800 V-Bucks to get their hands on the Crimson Axe.
Bringing back the Red Knight skin to Fortnite appears to have been a controversial choice. Some fans are happy to finally have the chance to get it, but others feel that it should have stayed a rare skin. Regardless, it’s unclear how long the Red Knight skin will be in Fortnite this time around, so anyone who wants to add it to their collection should be sure to jump on the opportunity.
While some fans will appreciate the opportunity to add the Red Knight skin to their roster, other Fortnite players may want to save their V-Bucks for future skins that are being added to the mix. After all, season 5 of battle royale will kick off next week, on July 12, and is expected to bring with it a new theme and plenty of new cosmetic items.
As for what kind of skins players can expect from season 5 in Fortnite, that’s not entirely clear at this point. Season 3’s theme was space, whereas season 4’s theme is superheroes. There are some hints as to what season 5’s theme may be, but at the time of this writing, nothing official has been confirmed by Epic.
Luckily, fans shouldn’t have to wait too much longer to learn what season 5 of Fortnite will bring to the table, since it’s scheduled to kick off on July 12. In the meantime, Fortnite fans who want the Red Knight skin should be sure to add it to their collection now, just in case it’s removed in the next update.
