Fortnite Ghostbusters skins arrive just in time for Halloween

Fortnite's Item Shop updated overnight and introduced some official Ghostbuster skins to the PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and Android game ahead of Halloween.

If you want to prove to other Fortnite players that you aren’t actually afraid of no ghost, then you can purchase the new cosmetic set in the game’s item shop. It should be noted that Epic Games appears to not have been able to get any of the Busters’ original likenesses, so you’ll just be buying the iconic Ghostbusters-themed jumpsuit pasted onto a generic body.

As well as the skins themselves, you can also acquire a new Ghostbusters-themed glider, harvesting tool, and back bling. The downside? The items are available via the Item Shop, and the Item Shop only.

If you’re in the mood for more spooky Fortnite skins, you shouldn’t have too long to wait. According to long-time leaker and dataminer ShiinaBR, a ‘Baba Yaga’ skin is set to arrive in-game on Monday, September 26.

If you’re planning on getting the new skins and want to go and show them off in-game, you’ll be pleased to know the Fortnitemares Halloween event is now live, and there’s a bunch of new challenges for you to complete.
Head over to our dedicated Fortnitemares Challenges guide at the link to learn more about the event, which runs from October 21 until November 3.
