14/07/2022 The Shadow Strike Bundle is back in Fortnite and the text of this article has been updated to reflect that.
It’s that time once again! The Shadow Strike Fortnite skin bundle is back in the Item Shop after another month and a half out of rotation, and it can’t have come at a better time. Epic Games is always building up to something big in-game event wise and the Mecha Team Shadow outfit seems like the perfect skin for almost every occasion.
In the Shadow Strike Fortnite skin bundle, players can get their hands on three Fortnite skins – Mecha Team Shadow, Nite Gunner, and Shadow Archetype – alongside three Back Bling cosmetics. This is going to set you back 2,800 V-Bucks though, which is a fair few. However, buying the Shadow Strike Fortnite skin bundle rather than each skin individually is going to save you 1,700 V-Bucks as each skin costs 1,500 V-Bucks each!
If you’re looking to complete the look, players can also get their hands on the Shadow Caliper harvesting tool for 500 V-Bucks, or the Shadow Combo Cleavers harvesting tool for 800 V-Bucks.
Why do these skins come at the perfect time for Fortnite fans? Well, the last time they showed up we were not too far away from the Chapter 3 Season 2 live event start time and all the teasers we had seen prior to that appeared to confirm that the gigantic robotic bear – named officially as Mecha Team Leader – was going to return for the big moment.
This isn’t exactly the case this time around, but the skins in this bundle are some of the best out there – so it makes sense to pick them up. If not, there’s always the Summer Legends pack featuring an un-peeled Peely – make of that what you will.
With Fortine leaks suggesting that the battle royale will get four Dragon Ball Z skins and that the Indiana Jones challenges hide a secret door at Shuffled Shrines, there’s still plenty to look forward to in Fortnite at the moment.
