Chrome Punk is a new Fortnite Battle Royale skin that will be obtainable very soon. Many players are excited about it because this will be a free skin.
The free skin was added with the release of the v22.20 update on Tuesday, October 20. Data miners and reputable leakers revealed that it would be free, yet the skin hasn’t come out yet.
Many Fortnite players started thinking that the skin will not come out. However, this article will reveal everything you need to know about it, its potential release date, and other details.
If you want to know how to earn the free Fortnite skin and when you will be able to do so, keep reading.
Why hasn’t free Fortnite skin come out yet?
It’s important to clarify that Epic Games adds a lot of new skins with every major Fortnite update. These skins are simply added to the game data and then used for the Item Shop, events, and so on.
The Chrome Punk skin was found in the game data but hasn’t been released to the game yet. This is simply because there are a lot of free cosmetics that are currently available and Epic Games will release the skin soon.
Chrome Punk is a perfect skin for the current event and the current season of the game. Considering that the Fortnite Halloween event was released just a few days ago, a character with a pumpkin head sounds like a perfect addition.
Furthermore, the season is all about Chrome and its expansion, and the free Fortnite skin has a Chrome theme as well.
If you want to see this skin live in the game, head over to Flutter Barn and find the Chrome Punk character. He sells a Chrome Splash, Zero Point Pretzels, and the Pumpkin Launcher.
Chrome Punk release date
Considering that the free Fortnite skin was added with the v22.20 update, we expect it to come out before Tuesday, November 1. At this date, Epic Games will release the v22.30 update, which will add a lot of new content to the game.
The Fortnite Halloween event will also end on November 1. Since the skin has a Halloween theme, it will most likely be released within the next 10 days.
Epic Games is having a special event on Saturday, October 22. The event is called “Spooky Night” and no one knows what it will be about.
However, there is a good chance that the new event will bring Chrome Punk. So far, the event has been revealed by Fortnite’s international Twitter pages.
How to earn Chrome Punk skin?
The Chrome Punk skin will come with two other cosmetic items. Besides the skin, you will be able to earn a special back bling, as well as a loading screen.
These cosmetic items will be part of the new promotion by Epic Games. The promotion uses the same strings as the Reboot Rally event, which means that you will most likely have to recruit your friends in order to earn the skin.
To unlock the back bling, you will have to level up 10 times, while the loading screen will require 25 levels. Finally, the Chrome Punk skin will be obtainable after earning 50 levels in total.
It’s important to note that these are account levels, not Battle Pass levels. Due to this, we believe that the skin will be obtainable throughout multiple seasons.
Xander, another free Fortnite skin that requires account levels, was released during Chapter 3 – Season 3 and will be obtainable through Chapter 3 – Season 5.
