Fortnite is “centralizing” within it more and more particularly popular narrative universes. On the other hand, the title of Epic Games can afford to “make good and bad times” in the video game industry, given the enormous success achieved by its leading production (in May 2020, Fortnite exceeded 350 million registered users).
You too have noticed the “big additions” made recently in the game, and in this regard, you are wondering how to unlock the Loki skin on Fortnite since you have heard that it is possible to impersonate the iconic Marvel comic character during your own raids between Gattogrill and Holly Hedges (just to mention two well-known locations on the Epic Games title map)
If that’s the case, don’t worry: below you can find all the information you need. Among other things, I can assure you that achieving your goal will not take long. What do you say? Are you ready to become the God of Deception on Fortnite? Yup? Very well. You just have to continue reading the tutorial. Having said that, I just have to wish you good reading and have fun!
- Preliminary information
- How to unlock the Loki skin on Fortnite
- How to use Loki Laufeyson’s costume in Fortnite
Before going into the details of the procedure on how to unlock the Loki skin on Fortnite, I think it may interest you to know more about this possibility.
Well, the Loki skin was launched during Season 7 of Chapter 2 of Fortnite. To be clear, this is the same Season in which Rick Sanchez of Rick and Morty was also introduced. However, the latter arrived on June 8, 2021, while Loki is available within the Epic Games title from July 1, 2021.
All this after other excellent arrivals in Fortnite, which in Season 6 of Chapter 2 saw the debut of characters like Lara Croft from Tomb Raider and Neymar Jr, the famous Brazilian footballer. In short, between fictional and real characters, the title of Epic Games has several arrows in its bow.
As you may already know, the subtitle of Season 7 of Chapter 2 of Fortnite is Invasion, and it indicates the fact that the aliens have arrived in the world imagined by Epic Games to wreak havoc and show off their cutting-edge technologies: between flying saucers, laser and scanner reconnaissance users have many possibilities to explore in this regard.
In this context, you understand well that using a costume that of Loki can actually represent a good choice, since the God of Deception is well contextualized where there is “chaos”.
Net of this, the character of Loki, coming from the Marvel comics, in July 2021 is particularly the center of attention. In fact, he is also the protagonist of the homonymous TV series created exclusively for the Disney + streaming service. In short, the popularity of the character certainly cannot be questioned, and it is, therefore, clear why Epic Games is aiming in general at the Marvel Cinematic Universe (who said, Thanos?) And at the world of superheroes (among others, Wolverine. , Aquaman and Deadpool).
In any case, before starting with the directions to reach your goal, I want to clarify that the Loki skin will remain available on Fortnite for a limited time. In fact, returning to the Fortnite Crew of July 2021, presumably, it will be difficult to obtain the costume after this last month.
In this case, therefore, the “expiration date” is even more restricted than the end of Season 7 of Chapter 2, which is instead set for September 12, 2021. For this reason, be sure to follow the tutorial in the correct time frame, which is July 2021, to avoid any unwanted purchases.
How to unlock the Loki skin on Fortnite
As already mentioned in the preliminary chapter, Loki’s costume is available on Fortnite only through the July 2021 rewards of the Fortnite Crew subscription.
This means that you have to make this type of paid subscription to have access to the coveted skin. I remind you that the price of Fortnite Crew is set at 11.99 euros per month and that the subscription benefits include the Battle Pass of the current Season, 1,000 V-Bucks per month and a monthly bundle of exclusive items.
Just the latter in July 2021 presents the costume of Loki Laufeyson, the decorative back of Loki’s Cloak, the hang glider Carro Chitauri and the loading screen Welcome of Loki. Of course, if you decide to keep the subscription active, you will get other benefits in the following months.
In addition, the fact that the Battle Pass of the current Season is included in the Fortnite Crew subscription can allow you to access, if you have not already done so, to rewards such as the costume of the changed alien Kimera (just have the Battle Pass to get it) or Rick Sanchez from Rick and Morty (reaching page 10 of the Battle Pass via the stars and levels system and unlocking all rewards).
In short, Epic Games has set the Fortnite Crew subscription so that it actually represents a method to access a bit of all the exclusive costumes that are launched (excluding, for example, the Store bundles ).
If you are therefore interested in this possibility, which during Season 7 of Chapter 2 of the Epic Games title is in fact the only way to get the Loki skin, just start the game, enter the main menu of the Battle Royale mode and go to the STORE. Then, scroll down the page, select the Fortnite Crew box and press the JOIN THE CREW button (or similar, depending on the platform you are using).
In any case, I suggest you take a look at the indication in the lower left of the screen. In fact, here we read: “Have you already purchased your Season 7 Battle Pass? Retrieve 950 V-Buck with a new subscription. […] Valid only for ongoing Battle Passes not received by joining the Fortnite Crew, with a one-time refund of 950 V-Buck “ . Put simply, if you have already purchased the Battle Pass of the current Season, you will receive 950 V-Bucks as a “refund” by subscribing to the Fortnite Crew.
I remind you that the V- Bucks represent the currency used in the Fortnite Store. This means that through this refund you may be able to get other skins that you may have already had your eyes on for some time.
For the rest, the payment system related to the subscription varies according to the platform from which you are making the purchase (the procedure to follow is, in fact, the same on all the platforms on which Fortnite is available). However, you shouldn’t have any particular problems completing the transaction, as usually you just need to set up a valid payment method and confirm your intention.
For example, if you usually play from PS4, you may be interested in my tutorial on how to pay on the PlayStation Store, in which I have explained a little bit of everything you need to know about the payment methods allowed by the official digital store of Sony.
In case you are no longer interested in continuing your subscription after July 2021, you can instead refer to my tutorial on how to deactivate the Fortnite Crew.

How do you say? Did you understand how to get the Loki skin on Fortnite by following the instructions I provided in the previous chapter, but you don’t know how to set the costume of the God of Deception to use it in battle? No problem, I’ll explain how to do it right away!
In reality, the procedure to do this is very simple: once Fortnite is started, go to the main screen of the Battle Royale mode, press on the CABINET tab at the top and select the skin icon, which is the first one located at the top left.
