How to unlock Green Arrow in Fortnite

A recent round of Fortnite leaks has revealed that several new superhero skins may be coming to the game. While a majority are Marvel characters, one mainstream DC hero appears set to join the growing roster. The Green Arrow (Oliver Queen) looks to be incoming, but how can players get the skilled bowman? Here’s the latest on how to unlock Green Arrow in Fortnite on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Android, and iOS.

The Green Arrow has grown in popularity over recent years, largely thanks to the acclaimed “Arrow” TV series. Having successfully transitioned from the pages of DC Comics to television screens, Fortnite fans may soon be able to control Oliver Queen in Epic Games’ battle royale title as well.

The Fortnite Green Arrow skin will be unlockable by spending V-Bucks in the Item Shop, or by completing a set of in-game challenges.

This is how players typically earn outfits in Fortnite, so it’s unlikely that the Green Arrow skin would break the mold. At the time of writing, however, Epic Games hasn’t officially announced the Green Arrow outfit or a method to unlock it.

Twitter user arusaurZ_YT first leaked the apparent existence of a Green Arrow skin in Fortnite (see below), and since then has shared gameplay of the outfit in action.

It looks legit, but until it’s made official, there is a small chance that this new Green Arrow Fortnite outfit might not make it into the game. Stay tuned for updates as and when any announcements are made.

When is the Green Arrow Fortnite release date?

Most likely, the Fortnite Green Arrow skin will release soon. If the leak is legitimate, the skin is already in a fully playable state and could arrive alongside the next patch. A Tuesday, December 22 Fortnite Green Arrow release date is possible as that’s the day of the week that new updates typically launch.

For more Fortnite, get the lowdown on the most recent patch. It introduced a couple of new guns and the Snowdown Shuffle playlist, which Epic has since had to remove. Additionally, leaks are indicating that planes might be making a comeback this Christmas.
