With Stranger Things Season 3 being released on July 4, Epic Games and Netflix have collaborated on this TV tie-in event that brings elements of the hit show to the battle royale game.

Much like other crossover events, such as the Avengers Endgame and John Wick 3 ones, there are a couple of outfits on offer to players to get. That is if you don’t get taken by anything from the Upside Down first.

You might be thinking that you have to complete some strange ⁠— pun intended ⁠— challenge or take part in an LTM to get those Fortnite x Stranger Things skins. Well, you don’t. The only thing you need to do is head to the item shop when the next update goes live.

We don’t know how many V-Bucks it will cost to buy the Jim Hopper or Demogorgon skins. We also aren’t aware if they will be available as a double pack or individually. We suspect the latter and, based on other special outfits that came to the store in recent months, they should cost a good chunk.

Skins can cost anywhere between 800 and 1600 V-Bucks based on their rarity. We imagine these two will be epic skins, so expect them to cost 1500 V-Bucks.
