The Fortnite Raven Skin Looks Pretty Similar to Xur From Destiny 2

At a glance.

Fortnite players are really excited about the new Raven skin. And why shouldn't they be? It's a really cool looking skin that you can't really find anywhere else. Well, except maybe Destiny 2 where the Raven skin shares a glancing similarity to Xur, everyone's favorite arms dealer.

Twitter and social media is ablaze right now with comparisons between the Fortnite Raven skin and Xur, the merchant NPC from Destiny that shows up once a week with a rotating shop of special weapons and armor. Both designs share similar features such as the hood that covers so much of the face that only glowing pupils are visible, a tasteful overcoat that combines leather and some kind of fur/feather, and a general aesthetic that those in the gear community would call "tacticool"

While I personally see the resemblance, I'd probably liken the Raven design more to the arms dealer from Resident Evil 4, a character I'm fairly certain is the inspiration for Xur. I mean, the RE4 merchant is basically Xur and Raven without the fur/feather accessories.

What are you buying?

Still, this won't detract from how popular the Raven skin in Fortnite has become in such short amount of time. The skin was first leaked via some dataminers and recently just came out. Even we thought it was pretty cool looking in our ranking of the best Fortnite skins.
