Fortnite Gingerbread Man: How to Get the Fortnite Merry Marauder Skin

The Fortnite Merry Marauder Skin is available via the in-game Item Shop rotation. Typically only available during Christmas seasons, it might just be coming back for a limited time. There are hundreds of Fortnite skins, emotes, and other cosmetic items available for purchase, and you want the one that looks like an angry Fortnite gingerbread man? Fair play.

Perhaps, and this is us guessing, the Merry Marauder skin will return as part of the rumored Christmas in July event?

How Do I Get the Fortnite Gingerbread Man Skin?

To download the Merry Marauder skin, all you need to do is head on into the Cash Shop. Buying the merry little outfit will set you back 1,500 V-Bucks. That’s a lot of (Christmas) cake. Not part of any set, putting down 1,500 V-Bucks nets you the Merry Marauder outfit and that’s it.

You can equip the Merry Marauder skin in the Locker screen before heading into any match.

What is the Fortnite Gingerbread Man Skin?

Fortnite Gingerbread Man

The Merry Marauder outfit essentially dresses your male Fortnite character up as a miserable gingerbread man. The brown military suit features a particularly grumpy gingerbread man mask. Bah humbug, indeed. Candy cane strap, a green bowtie, and icing put the, ahem, icing on the cake.

When Can I Buy the Fortnite Gingerbread Man skin?

You can buy the Merry Marauder gingerbread man skin whenever it reappears in the Cash Shop. As long as you have 1,500 V-Bucks, that is. The daily rotation item last appeared on January 31st, 2018, however. While we don’t know for sure when we’ll be seeing the Merry Marauder outfit again — Christmas time is as good a guess as any — we do have a hunch that we might be seeing a Christmas in July event at some point in the very near future.

For now, though, keep checking back on the daily Cash Shop rotation if you’re after the Merry Marauder outfit.
