How to unlock Skellon Glider in Fortnite

Fortnite might’ve received it’s coolest Glider skin yet in the latest update, which introduced tons on new cosmetics to the popular battle royale game. The Skellon Glider Fortnite skin is a top-tier Legendary cosmetic that makes the boring old default Glider look like a skeletal gold dragon instead. It’s sure to strike fear into any player that drops into the action nearby, so here’s how you can secure it in-game and be the envy of all your friends and foes.

How to get the Fortnite Skellon Glider

Having just been introduced to the game, the Fortnite Skellon Glider should be added to the premium Item Shop rotation sooner rather than later. Due to the limited-time nature of the in-game storefront, it’s important to check back daily if you really don’t want to miss the chance to get your hands on the Legendary Skellon Glider.

When it does pop up, there may be two different means of getting your hands on the item. Many Legendary Gliders can be purchased individually for 1,500 or 2,000 V-Bucks — equating to $15 and $20, respectively — though you might want to hold off before taking the plunge. Whether it’ll be the case in this instance remains to be seen, but often Gliders are available as part of a complete set including other relevant items.

With the Radiant Mantle Back Bling and Oro Outfit being added alongside the Skellon Glider and clearly matching aesthetically, it’s possible that they’ll be purchasable in a set for a more attractive asking price.

While that remains to be seen, thanks to the efforts of @Lucas7yoshi we do know the in-game item description for the Fortnite Skellon Glider:

Nothing stops a dragon.

Gliding into battle on a golden dragon certainly seems like it’ll give players a confidence boost, though whether or not they’ll be unstoppable probably depends on the competition.
