Do you like Fortnite? Do you like Marvel? Want some free Marvel cosmetics in Fortnite? Then keep reading.
One of the nicest elements of Fortnite is the endless collaborations. From music artists and WWE wrestlers to Naruto and Rick & Morty. The possibilities are truly endless. And of course we can’t forget about superheroes.
Fortnite X DC Comics
Two notable DC/Fortnite crossovers were released last year: Batman/Fortnite: Foundation, which delivered the fantastic Batman Who Laughs cosmetics, and Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point.
Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point was a special six-issue series where you could see Batman teaming up with Fishstick. You can purchase physical copies or read the series online at DC UNIVERSE INFINITE.
Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point gave Fortnite games a treat on every issue. Each number in the series contains a code. When redeemed, that code will unlock a DC themed cosmetic in Fortnite. Players will receive the following in-game items per release:
Issue #1: Rebirth Harley Quinn Outfit
Number 2: Batman Zero Wing Glider
Issue #3: Catwoman’s Grappling Claw Pickaxe
Issue #4: Deathstroke Destroyer Glider
Issue #5: Harley Quinn’s Revenge Back Bling
Issue #6: Batarang Ax Houweel
Whoever reads all six numbers and redeems all six codes will receive one last reward: the Batman Zero outfit.
Not one to let DC give them a hand, Marvel has joined the fun this year.
Enter Fortnite X Marvel: Zero War
Fortnite x Marvel: Zero War follows a similar formula to Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point. It is a five issue series featuring characters from the Fortnite universe who team up with Marvel heroes such as Spider-Man, Iron Man and Wolverine. The limited series came out in June and the last issue appeared on September 28. You can pick them up in person or read digital copies through Marvel Unlimited.
Each issue offers readers a free Marvel-themed Fortnite cosmetic.
Issue #1: Spider-Man Zero Outfit
Issue #2: Iron Man-based Wrap
Issue #3: Wolverine-Based Pickaxe
Issue #4: Spray based on Fortnite x Marvel: Zero War
Problem #5: Loading screen based on Fortnite x Marvel: Zero War
Whoever reads all five issues will receive a bonus: the Iron Man Zero bundle. Correct; not just the Iron Man Zero Outfit, but the entire kit and kaboodle. That includes the Repulsor Pack Back Bling, Bladed Gauntlet Pickaxe, Stark Seven Wrap, and a unique Iron Man reveal, Emote. The Iron Man Zero Outfit itself has three variants, two color schemes, and four different visors. You can also choose to put the helmet on or off.
But enough with the preamble. Let’s help you get all these items because this opportunity is only for a limited time.
How to get Fortnite X Marvel: Zero War Cosmetics for free
First, you need to sign up for Marvel Insider here:
Then you have to play a little. In particular, you have to play a little bit of Marvel: Contest of Champions.
After downloading Marvel: Contest of Champions, please create an account. If you go to the Activities tab on Marvel Insider and select Games, you will see that you will get 20,000 Marvel Insider points for this.
Next, you must complete the Normal Difficulty Event Quest for the first time. Do not worry; even for new players this is exceptionally easy. Look up some top tier MCOC YouTubers like KT1, ContestChampion and Seatin so you know to rank your 3-star Kitty Pryde instead of that 3-star Groot. Leveling up a strong champion makes it faster.
After completing normal mode, go back to the Games section in the “Activities” tab. At the bottom is the target for completing Normal Mode Event Quest in MCOC. Enter your in-game name and you’ll get 35,000 Marvel Insider Points.
From here you have two options:
- Complete Heroic Mode Event Quest once in MCOC to get 55,000 Marve Insider Points.
- Download Marvel Puzzle Quest, create an account and receive 20,000 Marvel Insider Points.
After you complete this you will be in the home game.
Visit the Comics section of the Rewards tab on Marvel Insider. At the bottom is the option to receive one month of free Marvel Unlimited for 75,000 Marvel Insider Points. Redeem this offer. You will receive a code in your registered email shortly. Use the link in the email to redeem the code for a free month of Marvel Unlimited. I recommend using Google Chrome for this. I was having trouble getting the link to work on OperaGX or Brave.
After you get in, just read the five issues of Fortnite X Marvel: Zero War. Marvel will send you a bonus code within 48 hours. Redeem this code through the Epic Games website or Epic Games Launcher. You have 90 days to redeem your code.
Congratulations! You just got 2500+ V Bucks worth of Fortnite X Marvel: Zero War cosmetics for free! Well, except for one.
Go to the Iron Man Zero Bundle to claim the remaining loading screen of Zero War Frontlines. You don’t have to pay V Bucks to claim it.
Before anyone asks, yes, you can get a 7-day free trial for Marvel Unlimited. But if you look at Epic Games’ official news release about Fortnite X Marvel: Zero War, you can not get these items during your free trial.
If you go that route, you’ll have to wait for the free trial to end, pay to continue the service, and only then will Marvel send you your bonus code within 48 hours. But this method works around payment.
You have until October 28 to do this, so don’t forget!
