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 up to date. Our weekly series returns with a really nice collaboration between Epic Games and the movie Dune: Chani!

Fortnite Skin Chani

The Fortnite Chani skin is based on a character from Dune, an American epic science fiction film set in 2021. Of course the film is based on the legendary sci-fi novels frist and foremost.

Set in the distant future, the film follows Paul Atreides as he and his family, the noble House Atreides, are drawn into a war over the dangerous desert planet of Arrakis between the native Fremen people and the enemy invaders, House Harkonnen. Visions of Chani keep appearing to Paul, even though he has never met her. Eventually Paul and his mother are forced to flee into the desert during the course of the film. Reluctantly, they are taken in by a tribe of native Fremen. There he first meets Chani, the Fremen woman who is to protect and guide Paul. Later, the two become lovers.

Inspired by this year's movie, Paul and Chani were put in Fortnite's item store along with more Dune gear. Chani is embodied by the American singer and actress Zendaya.

How do you get the Chani skin in Fortnite?

The Chani Skin was added to Fortnite on October 20, 2021 as part of the Dune set in Chapter 2, Season 8 with Patch 18.20 Fortnite. It is available every now and then in the Fortnite item store and can be purchased exclusively there.

How much does the Chani skin cost in Fortnite?

You can buy the Chani skin in the Fortnite Item Shop individually for 1,500 V-Bucks. The skin is also available within the Dune set with other Cosmetics for 2,000 V-Bucks. You can also get the Dune gear pack for 1,500 V-Bucks.

Which Cosmetics are included in the Dune Set?

Chani is part of the Dune set in Fortnite. The following Cosmetics are included in it:

Outfit Chani

Capable warrior and experienced survivor of the Fremen.

The skin Chani looks insanely similar to Zendaya. She wears the same outfit as in Dune. She has her hair tied up, always ready for a fight alongside Paul.

Beyond the fear, his destiny awaits.

Paul is the actual main character of Dune. In Fortnite, besides his normal style, he has another one where he wears his mask over his mouth. He also looks insanely similar to actor Timothee Chalamet.

Ornithopter Glider

Offensive flying machine with many wings.

The Ornithopter is perfect for flying over the deserts. There is only a very small desert section in Fortnite, but hey, if a sandstorm should ever come up, at least you're well equipped.

Back accessory Fremkit

Essential for survival in the harsh conditions of the desert planet Dune.

The back accessories from the Dune set are also very similar to the original. However, it is a bit large and we personally find the skins without almost nicer.

Back Accessory Chani's Equipment

Chani's own Fremkit.

We had to look twice to see the difference between Chani's kit and the Fremkit. Honestly, Epic could have tried a little harder on this one.

Emote Sand Walk

Walk like the natives of Arrakis.

The emote lets you carefully drag yourself across the desert. Or across the ground, depending on where you are. Admittedly not the coolest emote in Fortnite, but out of boredom you can use it once in a while.

Pickaxe Twin Daggers

The preferred weapon of the warriors of House Atreides.

Unlike the back accessories, the harvesting tools are a lot cooler. The twin daggers look good not only in the hands of Chani and Paul, but on almost every skin of Fortnite.

Pickaxe Bringer Hook

Hook of the Fremen for riding sandworms.

What's better than one good hook? That's right, two. This double harvesting tool is perfect for mining some materials in Fortnite. Now if you could also climb in Fortnite, we would have the ideal tool here as well.
