Fortnite: Epic has created a skin inspired by the famous Stonks Man

Fortnite: Epic has created a skin inspired by the famous Stonks Man

Fortnite

In the Fortnite Chapter 2 store, not only serious skins like those dedicated to the characters of the Marvel universe arrive, but from time to time the developers decide to have fun creating more particular costumes. This is the case of the skin that in Italian takes the name of Hanz Diamante, which is inspired by a very famous meme.

As you may have already guessed by looking at the image at the bottom of the news, the costume in question was created using the Stonks Man as a source of inspiration, the bizarre character represented in the images that have the stock market trend data in the background. Included with the skin, sold for the modest sum of 1,200 V-Bucks (about 10 euros in microtransactions), is also included a decorative back whose shape is almost identical to the orange arrow also present in the meme. Unlike what is present in the description of the object, it seems that the decorative back is reactive and at every kill carried out with the backpack on it is possible to hear a funny sound.

In short, even the battle royale celebrated in a way his April Fool by publishing a real skin that may never return to the item shop. Waiting to find out what will be the next package to debut in the store, we remind you that on our pages you will find the guide on how to collect Bouncy Eggs and unlock the Tactical Qua Qua pickaxe in Fortnite for free.





'Fortnite' Spring Breakout Cup Start Time and How to Get The Webster Skin Early

Fortnite © Epic Games 'Fortnite' hosts the Spring Breakout Cup April 2. Learn when it starts and how to get the Webster Outfit early. 'Fortnite' is available now on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Switch, PC and Android.

Fortnite's Spring Breakout Cup is set to begin April 2, offering skilled Duos a chance to unlock the Webster skin and Mecha-Feathers Back Bling a few days early. Do you want this robot chicken in your cosmetic locker? Here's everything you need to know to potentially get your hands on a free Webster.

What time is the Spring Breakout Cup in Fortnite?

Following the format of several previous skin-related tournaments, the Spring Breakout Cup is set to run between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. local time in the NA East and NA West regions.


Here's the full list of regional start times listed in EDT. While it is technically possible to compete in any region you wish, note that you can only play in one region over the course of the tournament. Given that competing outside your region typically introduces additional lag, we highly recommend sticking to your territory unless you're playing with someone over long distance.

  • NA East: 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. EDT
  • NA West 9 p.m. to 12 a.m. EDT
  • Europe: 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. EDT
  • Oceania: 3 a.m. to 6 a.m. EDT
  • Brazil: 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. EDT
  • Asia: 5 a.m. to 8 a.m. EDT
  • Middle East: 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. EDT
  • Participants must also have 2FA enabled on their Epic accounts as well. To learn more about that, read our dedicated Fortnite 2FA guide.

    How does scoring work in the Spring Breakout Cup?

    The Spring Breakout Cup is a Duos tournament where teams play up to 10 matches over the event's three-hour duration. Matches are scored using the following system:

  • Seventh: 27 Points
  • Eighth: 26 Points
  • Ninth: 25 Points
  • 10th: 24 Points
  • 11th: 23 Points
  • 12th: 22 Points
  • 13th: 21 Points
  • 14th: 20 Points
  • 15th: 19 Points
  • 16th: 18 Points
  • 17th: 17 Points
  • 18th: 16 Points
  • 19th: 15 Points

  • How to get the Webster Skin early

    Just like the previous tournaments in this ilk, Duos need to reach a certain leaderboard threshold in their respective server region to earn the Webster Outfit and Mecha-Feathers Back Bling. Here are the prizing thresholds for each region.

  • NA East: First-575th
  • NA West: First-250th
  • Europe: First-1,125th
  • Oceania: First-75th
  • Brazil: First-250th
  • Asia: First-125th
  • Middle East: First-100th
  • There are several ways one can check their position on the leaderboard as the action unfolds. To do so in-game, simply scroll over to the Competitive tab, select the tile for the Spring Breakout Cup and press the designated button to 'view leaderboard.' That method tends to be the most accurate, but, if it doesn't work, you can also use a third-party site like Fortnite Tracker as well. Just make sure you've selected the correct region to see the right results.


    If you don't happen to win today, the Webster skin is likely to be sold in the Item Shop over the next few days. An exact release date for the skin is not yet known, so you may want to keep an eye on the shop if you really want it. That's all there is to know about the Spring Breakout Cup in Fortnite.


    Fortnite is available now on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Switch, PC and Android.
