The Fortnite Ghost Portal back bling is one hell of a badass looking item, that many players are sure to want to purchase/earn.

However, this is not the case, as the Ghost Portal simply rests on the shoulders of a player, looking cool without actually doing anything.

If this does turn out to be the case, players will need to drop a certain number of V-Bucks in order to unlock it. However, with Epic Games recently pushing event items with specific challenge unlocks, it’s possible that the Ghost Portal will be linked to an upcoming event. The word “ghost” could offer a hint at a potential Halloween event.

The Fortnite Ghost Portal back bling was leaked by, which also included the description: “I just got a chill.” This could well be another clue. Time will tell!
