PC players can get the free Splash Squadron exclusive cosmetics for a limited time by redeeming the Fortnite x Intel bundle.
Fortnite partners with a lot of different companies to provide its players with services and cosmetics. The most well-known partnerships are with companies like Disney, Microsoft, or Sony when a licensed character is added to the game. However, there are plenty of exclusive skins that aren’t as well-known.
Skins such as the Royale Bomber, Eon, or Double Helix are outfits that came exclusively with a console. Other skins such as Havoc or Sub Commander were given to Twitch Prime members. And perhaps the most notorious promotional skin is Galaxy which was given away during the first Samsung Galaxy promotion. Now, Epic Games is bringing players the Fortnite x Intel bundle.
How to Redeem Fortnite x Intel Bundle
The Splash Squadron Fortnite x Intel bundle is exclusive to those with a PC. Not just any PC will do as players will need to have a “newer” Intel CPU. Here is a list of qualifying CPUs that can redeem the bundle. If you have the proper CPU, follow the steps below:
- Sign-up or Login at softwareoffer.intel.com/bonus
- Click the blue “Redeem Offer” button
- When asked “Do you have a Master Key?” select “No”
- Select “Best Buy Canada” from the drop down list
- Select your CPU model from the drop down list
- Click “Continue”
- Click “Continue” Again
- After reading the EULA, click “Download and Scan”
- If your device qualifies, the Splash Squadron bundle will be added to your promotion dashboard
- Complete a short survey and select Fortnite
- Link your Epic Games account to your Intel account
- Next time you launch Fortnite you will receive the Splash Squadron cosmetics
Players will need to act quickly as the Fortnite x Intel bundle is only available until August 10th. Afterward, the bundle will be gone forever and players will miss out on their chance to get these exclusive cosmetics. The bundle comes with an exclusive skin, pickaxe, and glider.

World-renowned pop-star Ariana Grande is finally coming to Fortnite. Here is how you can get the Ariana Grande Fortnite skin.
Epic Games started to tease the upcoming Rift Tour event at the end of last week. The minimal info that Epic provided teased the appearance of a chart-topping musical guest that would put on an in-game concert like never before. It didn’t take long for fans to begin speculating who the mystery star could be, and most everyone guessed it would be Ariana Grande.
Fans have wanted Grande to come to Fortnite since the larger-than-life Travis Scott performance. One skin concept artist who has had multiple skins make it into the game had already designed an Ariana Grande Fortnite skin. With all of the hype surrounding her potential appearance, Epic had no choice but to add her to the game.
How to get the Ariana Grande skin
There are plenty of free cosmetics being given to players as a part of the Rift Tour event, but Ariana Grande isn’t one of them. Similar to the Travis Scott concert, the Ariana Grande Fortnite skin will cost V-Bucks. According to Epic Games, Grande will debut in the Item Shop at 8 PM EST on August 4th.
Two days before the Rift Tour begins, players will be able to purchase their own Ariana Grande Fortnite skin. However, we don’t know how much she will cost just yet. If her skin’s price is close to that of Travis Scott, she will cost 1,500 V-Bucks. Scott also had a bundle that included a second skin, but only one Ariana Grande skin has been revealed.
She will likely appear in the Item Shop for a few days until the event is over. If her appearance is anything like Scott’s or Marshmello’s, players won’t want to miss out on getting her. It could be a year or two before she returns.
For those who don’t feel like spending money on cosmetics, there are plenty of free goodies being given away. Players who attend the event get a free Rift Tour umbrella, and there are a few challenges to be completed before the event. As well, Fortnite Crew Pack members get even more free goodies just for playing.

A deadly member of the Suicide Squad is coming, and here is how you can get the Bloodsport Fortnite skin.
Another crossover character is making its way into Fortnite as a promotion for the upcoming Suicide Squad movie. While players may be more familiar with Deadshot, who was played by Will Smith in the Suicide Squad (2016), Bloodsport fills the same role in the upcoming film.
Epic Games teamed up with DC to give a preview of the skin before its release. Idris Elba, who plays Bloodsport in the film, appeared in the trailer to introduce his character. The Bloodsport Fortnite skin is an identical copy of the character that appears in the film.
How to get Bloodsport skin
Players won’t be able to get the Bloodsport Fortnite skin until August 3rd. Epic Games has announced that this is when the skin will release in the Item Shop. The store will reset at 8 p.m. EST, and the skin will likely stay in the shop for a few days.
We don’t know the specifics of how much Bloodsport will cost, but we can assume he will be around 1,500 V-Bucks. The trailer also shows him wielding a pickaxe and wearing a Back Bling that is a part of his set. These might be also be sold as a bundle for around 2,200 V-Bucks.
So the only way to obtain the Bloodsport Fortnite skin is by purchasing him using V-Bucks. Fortnite hasn’t announced any special tournaments that reward top-placing players with the skin. It’s safe to assume that they won’t be holding one this time around.
As for The Suicide Squad, the film releases in theaters on August 6th. This means players can get a taste of the action three days before the movie’s release. Teaming up with Harley Quinn will make players feel as if they’re in the film. Stay tuned as more information regarding the Bloodsport skin is released.

The August Fortnite Crew Pack has been revealed, and a fan-made concept is this month’s exclusive skin.
Fortnite Crew is a monthly subscription service that offers an exclusive skin that can’t be obtained anywhere else. As well as cosmetics, Epic Games often throws in a few other goodies. Free subscriptions to other services and access to the Save The World game mode have been part of the Crew Pack in the past.
However, the big-ticket items are exclusive cosmetics. Players have one month to subscribe before the skins, Back Blings, and pickaxes are gone forever. While some skins are a bit lackluster, the August Fortnite Crew Pack is one you won’t want to miss.
August Crew Pack features fan-made skin
The August Fortnite Crew pack skin is named Summer Skye, but it’s more than just a Sky variant. Summer Sky was designed by concept artist Nollobandz who has designed a couple of other skins that have made it into Fortnite.
Dark Rex, Lyra, and Eco are all skins that Nollobandz designed. They are one of many creators who have had their concepts become a reality. Summer Skye is an homage to all of the fan-made skins that have made it into Fortnite so far.
Summer Skye’s outfit is made up of different parts of other fan-made skins. Fortnite hints at this in its reveal tweet by listing all of the skins it references.
Summer Skye is coming to Fortnite on August 1 as a part of the August Fortnite Crew Pack. The skin comes with four styles, a Back Bling, one-handed pickaxe, and two wraps. When unequipped, the sword pickaxe will be sheathed in the Back Bling.
As well, the Fortnite Crew Pack will include 1,000 V-Bucks and season-long access to the Battle Pass. The subscription costs $11.99 USD.
