Finally, Miles Morales is swinging into the Item Shop as Fortnite‘s latest Spider-Man skin–and he’s bringing Miguel O’Hara, aka Spider-Man 2099, with him. But that’s not all. With the conclusion of the Star Wars-themed Find the Force event, battle royale will once again have a distinctly spider-y flavor with the return of the Web-Shooter mythic, which now looks like Miles’ black glove.
The Item Shop got an early morning reset to mark the start of this Spider-party. In the shop you’ll find two new Spider-Men that you can pick up: the Spider-Man (Miles Morales) skin and the Spider-Man 2099 skin. Like the Spider-Gwen skin from the Chapter 3 Season 4 battle pass, Miles comes with a mask-off style in addition to his standard Spider-Man look–sorry, no jacket-and-shorts style here. Miles’ back bling is the very trippy Spider-Verse Portal, and Spider-Ham’s Mallet is his pickaxe. And the Mallet comes with the Put ‘Er There emote, which lets you summon the Mallet regardless of what pickaxe you have equipped.

The Spider-Man 2099 skin, meanwhile, does not have an unmasked style, but he does come with the reactive 2099 Web Cape back bling, which does this cool shimmer effect when you get an elimination. The 2099 set also includes the 928 Axes dual-wielding pickaxe.
Looking to save a few V-Bucks when you pick up these Spider-Men? All the new Item Shop cosmetics mentioned above are available in the new Across the Spider-Verse Bundle for much cheaper than buying them separately. And remember, if you picked up Spider-Ham’s Mallet from quests this past weekend, you’ll get even bigger savings on this bundle.

This event, which is timed to the release of Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse on June 2, will take us to the end of Chapter 4 Season 2. The season is currently scheduled to end during the wee hours of June 9.
The Spider-Verse event in Battle Royale is a more standard affair compared with Find the Force, which added Clone Trooper camps and a Darth Vader boss to the map, along with lightsabers, Force powers and a new laser rifle. The only core gameplay change in Battle Royale for this event is the addition of the Spider-Verse Web-Shooters, which will appear as floor loot (meaning they will only spawn on the ground, and won’t pop out of chests) and are purchasable wherever you find Spider-Gwen.
There are quests, too, of course. This week’s season quests (Week 11) are Spider-Man-themed, and there’s one cosmetic reward: the Silk & Cologne (EI8HT version) Lobby Track from Across the Spider-Verse.
