DC’s mainstay Flash is coming to Fortnite, according to several data miners who recently dug up the information. I’m not quite sure how the Scarlet Speedster fits into the entire hunter aesthetic of season 5, but considering the Flash is like DC’s 10th mask (and God only knows how many Marvel skins we’ve been treated to), I’m not complaining. .
Take a look at the suit below, courtesy of HYPEX.
I’m by no means an expert on DC, but it seems like the Flash’s red suit is primarily inspired by the fourth season of the CW series, in which Barry Allen gets a pretty significant update on the older threads of him.
How to get the Flash Fortnite skin
Surprise, surprise, Epic will be holding a short competition for players to get the skin before it hits the item store, according to HYPEX.
Appropriately dubbed the “Flash Cup”, the tournament will be in duos format and will begin on February 10th. Here’s Epic’s official rules page for the event.
According to HYPEX twitter, the Flash skin will hit the Item Shop on February 13, just three days after the competition. Here’s a look at the Flash cosmetics, which appear to include an emoticon, an electric bolt, and tools for collecting ice with an electric bolt.
