In each and every new season of Fortnite, players are given the chance to unlock some crossover characters from other popular series and franchises. With the release of Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1, players now have the chance to get their hands on Marcus Fenix and Kait Diaz from Gears of War fame, alongside Spider-Man. In this guide, we’ll explain everything you need to know to get these characters, as well as explain how to get those Fortnite Gears of War challenges.
Getting Marcus Fenix & Kait Diaz in Fortnite
Both the Marcus Fenix and Kait Diaz skins will be made available in the Fortnite Item Shop in the future.
At the time of writing, no official date for when they’ll hit the store has been provided. However, given The Game Awards are taking place this Thursday, we could see the two Gears of War characters get their own reveal trailer at the show, before going up for sale in the Item Shop later that day.
You’re likely looking around 1500-2000 V-Bucks for each skin. These may come with some additional Gears of War-themed cosmetics, but again at the time of writing, nothing has been confirmed. As soon as we know anything we’ll update this post and let you know.
All Gears of War Challenges
Upon purchasing either the Marcus Fenix or Kait Diaz skins from the Fortnite Store, you’ll then automatically receive the “Delta-One” questline, composed of five Gears of War-themed challenges. These are:
- Collect Three COG Tags
- Crouch Behind a Barrier
- Damage an Opponent with a Melee Attack
- Do Shotgun Damage to an Opponent
- Collect Three Thrashball Memorabilia
