Fortnite Shredder Skin: Price, Release Date & What You Should Know (UPDATED)


While we’ve already seen those titular turtles from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in Fortnite during Chapter 5 – Season 1, it looks like we may be about to get their eternal enemy, Shredder, as well.

The big bad of the whole franchise, Shredder is an iconic villain who takes the form of a giant samurai with just the absolutely worst manners. He is regularly causing trouble around New York for the Turtles, and no matter how many times they defeat him, he always finds some way of coming back, having been featured in practically every single adaptation to date.

And now he’s making his way to Fortnite as a skin, too. Here’s everything you have to know about Shredder in Fortnite, including when he will release and for how much.

Shredder will be released as two different skins when he is finally added to the game, one that is more “normal” and one that is in a super form of him, Super Shredder, as you can see above. Both Shredder forms will be sold as part of the TMNT Event Pass, in which players will have to complete quests in order to unlock Super Shredder, and the regular Shredder is unlocked immediately after buying the Event Pass. Both skins will also be supported by their Lego forms.

As well as that, there will be other cosmetics in the set, including a rather sick Kang Back Bling, a guitar for Fortnite Festival, an emote and more.
