More and more characters from series, movies, or other games appear as skins in Fortnite. To make sure you don't lose track of the story behind the characters, we'll keep you in the loop. Our weekly series returns with a really neat collaboration between Epic Games and Star Wars: Boba Fett from The Book of Boba Fett!
Fortnite Skin Boba Fett
Boba Fett is a fictional character from the Star Wars series. He is an armored bounty hunter who appears in both the original and prequel film trilogies. In the original Star Wars trilogy, he is a supporting character and was mainly portrayed by Jeremy Bulloch and voiced by Jason Wingreen. He is characterized by his stoic demeanor and the fact that he never removes his helmet. This skin appears both in The Empire Strikes Back and in Return of the Jedi in the service of the crime lord Jabba the Hutt. Although he was seemingly killed in Return of the Jedi after falling into a sandpit, he has since continued to appear in Star Wars, confirming his survival though not exactly explaining it.
Just before the new year, "The Book of Boba Fett" launched on Disney+. The plot of "The Book of Boba Fett" takes place parallel to "The Mandalorian." At the end of "The Mandalorian" Season 2, Boba, together with Fennec Shand, stormed Jabba's palace and killed Bib Fortuna, so he is now the leader of the Hutt crime syndicate. To coincide with the event, Epic Games announced an official Fortnite x Boba Fett crossover.
How To Get The Boba Fett Skin In Fortnite?
The Boba Fett Skin was added to Fortnite on December 25, 2021, as part of the "The Book of Boba Fett" set in Chapter 3, Season 1 with Patch 19.01 Fortnite. It is available occasionally in Fortnite's item store and can be purchased exclusively here.
How Much Does The Boba Fett Skin Cost In Fortnite?
You can buy the Boba Fett skin in the Fortnite item store individually for 1,500 V-Bucks. The skin is also available within the "The Book of Boba Fett" set with other cosmetics for 2,300 V-Bucks.
What Cosmetics Are Included In The "The Book of Boba Fett" Set?
Boba Fett is part of the "The Book of Boba Fett" set in Fortnite. The following cosmetics are included in it:
Outfit Boba Fett
A simple man making his way in the galaxy, just like his father before him.
He is logically the star of the crossover! However, Fett is not the first Star Wars character to appear in Fortnite. Besides him, the Imperial Stormtrooper, Kylo Ren, Zorii Bliss, Finn, Rey, the Sith Tropper, and the Mandalorian are also in Fortnite. However, we are happy to announce that Boba Fett has joined the force!
Harvest Tool Gaffi Lance
The weapon of the Sand People of Tatooine, where Boba spent a lot of time.
The Gaffi Lance was the traditional melee weapon of the Tusken Raiders of Tatooine. It was a pole weapon with a spike or blade on one end and some sort of striking instrument on the other. Perfect to use in Fortnite to pummel your opponents.
Back Bling Z-6 Jetpack
For Mandalorians, the jetpack of choice.
The Z-6 jetpack is a jetpack model favored by Mandalorian commands throughout the galaxy, from the organized Death Watch to Mandalorians who operated on the fringes of society, such as Jango and Boba Fett. The fast and agile Z-6 model can maintain sustained flight as well as give the carrier short bursts of lift to gain a tactical advantage in combat.
Targeting Computer Online Emote
Scan the horizon for your target.
For Boba Fett, it's important to have his target in your sights. So Epic gave him a built-in emote, which you can only use with the Boba Fett skin. With this, the targeting computer flips down from his helmet and analyzes the environment.
Boba Fett's Starship Hang Glider
Boba Fett's famous Firespray-class ship, which he inherited from his father Jango Fett.
The Slave One is a modified Firespray-31 class patrol and assault ship that was used by the infamous Mandalorian bounty hunter Jango Fett before the Clone Wars. Later, Boba inherited it from his father, which is why now he gets to fly it over Fortnite Island.
