Fortnite's Red Knight Skin Coming to the Shop Today

Fortnite's Red Knight Skin Coming to the Shop Today

Epic revealed that one of the most popular skins in Fortnite will be making a return to the shop.

The Red Knight skin has always been one of the more popular, sought-after skins by the community within the Battle Royale game. As Epic announced just yesterday, the Red Knight skin will be available in the Fortnite shop today.

Some skins in Fortnite Battle Royale become insanely popular for no discernable reason. This was the case with the "John Wick" skin a few months back, and the Red Knight skin back in February. If you missed out on the Red Knight skin, you're in luck as Epic has teased that it will be coming back to the game today, on July 5.

At the time of writing, the Red Knight skin isn't actually available in the Fortnite shop. However we'll be keeping an eye on the game an updating this post whenever it's made available. There's no word on how many V-Bucks the Red Knight skin is going to cost when it does launch, but we'd imagine it'll set you back by at least 1,000 V-Bucks.

The Red Knight skin is, in our opinion, one of the best looking skins in Fortnite Battle Royale right now. For a full list of the top 15 cosmetics in the game, head over to our best Fortnite skins page.

Also today on July 5, the latest batch of Fortnite weekly challenges have gone live, marking the final round of challenges before Fortnite Season 5 launches next week. Head over to our Fortnite Week 10 Challenges guide for a complete walkthrough of how to complete all seven challenges.
