Snake Eyes from GI Joe will, reportedly, be coming to Fortnite Season 5 any day now.
Epic Games have ramped-up the crossovers in Fortnite season 5, with the introduction of the Gaming Legends series and the addition of more pop-culture crossovers.
During an interview back in October, Epic Games Creative Director Donald Mustard told fans that he hid some clues for future crossovers in the background. Fans were quick to see the GI Joe action figure of Snake Eyes – the most popular character in the franchise.
Fast-forward to today: Donald Mustard has tweeted another photo – this time showing him reading a comic book.
As you might expect, the book was from the GI Joe universe. Mustard, a big fan, can also be seen sporting a tattoo of the Arashikage Clan logo. He later changed his location on Twitter to “Arashikage Clan.”
All of this was enough to speculate about a GI Joe crossover on its own, but Fortnite soon tweeted a clip that all but confirmed it.
Agent Jones posted a reality log, referencing a new bounty hunter who has a crew. At the end of the transmission, he says, “Knowing is half the battle,” which is a famous line from a GI Joe PSA.
We can expect to see Snake Eyes from GI Joe enter Fortnite as soon as tonight when the Item Shop resets. Follow us on Twitter, @FortniteINTEL, for all of the latest developments on this and all other Fortnite Item Shop updates.
Epic Games have announced that they’re taking action on the ‘pay-to-win’ all-black and all-white superhero skins.

Fortnite players have been complaining about the “pay-to-win” superhero skins being difficult to see in certain situations. Finally, after months of complaints, Epic are making a change to these skins.
The customizable superhero skins were a huge hit when they first hit Fortnite in Season 4. They presented one of the best values we’ve ever seen in a Fortnite skin. You could have a virtually unlimited number of customization options in just one skin.
After a while, however, Fortnite players began to realize that there was an issue with these skins. The all-white and – even more – all-black variations were incredibly difficult to see in certain situations, leading players to call them “pay-to-win.”
Thankfully, unlike companies like Activision, Epic Games have an amazing track record when it comes to fixing pay-to-win cosmetics. They altered the Toy Trooper skin, Deep Dab emote, and Llamacorn glider after these cosmetics all garnered the same tag.
Epic promised to investigate the issue on Reddit, and later confirmed that they would fix the problem in a later patch.
“We’ve made some adjustments to the materials, and you will no longer be able to have white/white or black/black color combinations when selecting your primary and secondary colors,” They said in a statement. According to the post, this change will go into effect in v15.30.
Like all other skins that receive changes, players will be able to receive a refund without using a refund token – up to 30 days after the change takes effect.
v15.30 is expected to release next week, so you can keep an eye out for that. In the meantime, make sure to check your corners. Those all-black superhero skins are still lingering.

The Fortnite Crew subscription is the popular new way to get exclusive monthly cosmetics and the Battle Pass for one low price. If you don’t like the monthly offering, here’s how to easily cancel your subscription.
For all of their faults, Epic Games is one of the most player-friendly developers when it comes to microtransactions. They changed the meta of gaming monetization with the Battle Pass model, pushing other developers away from the loot box system that was popular at the time.
In 2021, Epic announced a new monetization system: the Fortnite Crew subscription. In January, with a new Battle Pass, the $11.99 price tag offered an amazing deal for the Battle Pass, a skin pack, and 1,000 V-Bucks.
The next couple of months offered new skin packs, but the Battle Pass offering didn’t present as attractive of a value for those who already owned it. If you don’t like the new skin pack, it probably wasn’t worth the price.
Thankfully, Epic makes it easy to cancel your subscription. Here’s what you need to do.
How to cancel your Fortnite Crew subscription
As we said, Epic is an extremely customer-friendly developer. They make canceling the Crew subscription as easy as possible. You don’t need to go to their website or even leave the game; it’s all right here.
Follow these steps to cancel your Fortnite Crew subscription:
- Navigate to the Item Shop tab
- Scroll down to the Crew section
- Click Cancellation Info
- Click Leave Fortnite Crew
Just like that, you’ll be out of the Crew subscription and won’t be charged when the new month begins. You can always rejoin at any time by going back to the Item Shop and signing up.
Most other games would likely force you to go to the website and enter your details before canceling – making it more difficult and easier for players to forget. As usual, Epic don’t use these predatory tactics.

If you were paying attention to the Fortnite Twitter account over the weekend, you probably noticed some strange behavior. The profile picture changed and the account began issuing a series of tweets, reading like a short story.
Like all Fortnite plotlines, the tweets were vague. They didn’t tell us much but made us aware that the Drift skins were likely a part of another faction on the island.
When the tweet-storm ended, it became clear that Epic were teasing the next Crew skin pack. On Monday, they confirmed as much.
How to get the exclusive February Fortnite Crew skin
This will be the third month of the Fortnite Crew subscription. Existing members won’t need to do anything to re-up their skin. All they need to do is log into Fortnite on February 1 and receive their rewards.
If you’re not a member and want to sign up, you’ll be prompted when you log in. The cost of a monthly membership is $11.99. It will grant you the Battle Pass, 1,000 V-Bucks, and the new Vi skin pack if you sign up in February. If you sign up before the new month, you’ll still be able to grab the Green Arrow skin pack.
February’s pack will include:
- Vi skin with two variants
- Drift Shift wrap
- Foxbow back bling
- Crooked Claw pickaxe
- a new loading screen
You can cancel the membership at any time by following the steps outlined here. If you were a fan of the past Crew packs and don’t like this one, cancelling the subscription is easy.
