More and more characters from series, films and other games appear as skins in Fortnite. So that you don't lose sight 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 Star Wars: Fennec Shand.
Fortnite Skin Fennec Shand
Fennec Shand is a fictional character from the Star Wars series. She was an elite female mercenary who worked as a bounty hunter for crime syndicates, including the Hutts. During the New Republic, her life was saved by bounty hunter Boba Fett, to whom she then offered her services. After rescuing the Force-sensitive Grogu from the clutches of Moff Gideon, Fennec Shand and Boba Fett took over Jabba's Tatooine palace.
Just recently, "The Book of Boba Fett" started on Disney+. To celebrate the series, Boba Fett finally made his way to Fortnite's item shop. He was later followed by two other galactic bounty hunters: Fennec Shand and Krrsantan.
How Do You Get The Fennec Shand Skin?
The Fennec Shand Skin was added as part of The Book of Boba Fett bundle in Chapter 3, Season 1 with Patch 19.20 on February 9, 2022. It is available from time to time in the Fortnite item shop and can only be purchased there.
How Much Does The Fennec Shand Skin Cost?
You can purchase the Fennec Shand skin individually from the Fortnite Item Shop for 1,500 V-Bucks. The skin is also available in the Bounty Hunter bundle with other cosmetics for 2,300 V-Bucks.
What Cosmetics Are In The Book of Boba Fett Bundle?
Fennec Shand is part of The Book of Boba Fett set in Fortnite. This includes the following cosmetics:
Outfit Fennec Shand
Don't even try to chase her.
Fennec Shand was an elite female mercenary who had worked as a bounty hunter and assassin for many crime syndicates throughout her life. During the New Republic, her life was saved by bounty hunter Boba Fett, to whom she then offered her services. Fennec can be purchased individually for 1,500 V-Bucks, or in sets for 2,300 V-Bucks.
Krrsantan is a giant black-furred Wookiee. He was once a gladiator and then became a bounty hunter.
This Wookiee is quite aggressive, but most people in The Book of Boba Fett took him to their hearts. So if you see him walking around Fortnite Island, you'll know who a real fan is.
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 isn't the first Star Wars character to appear in Fortnite. Also joining him in Fortnite are the Imperial Stormtrooper, Kylo Ren, Zorii Bliss, Finn, Rey, the Sith Trooper, and the Mandalorian. However, we are happy that Boba Fett has joined the troupe!
Gaffi Stick Pickaxe
The weapon used by 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 arm with a spike or blade at one end and some sort of percussion instrument at the other end. Perfect for hitting opponents with in Fortnite.
Z-6 Jetpack Back Bling
The jetpack of choice for Mandalorians.
The Z-6 Jetpack is a jetpack model favored by Mandalorian commandos across the galaxy, from the organized Death Watch to Mandalorians who operated on the fringes of society like Jango and recently, Boba Fett. Fast and agile, the Z-6 model can both maintain sustained flight and provide the wearer with short bursts of lift to gain a tactical advantage in combat. Doesn't that sound familiar in Fortnite too?
Targeting Computer Online Emote
Search the galaxy for your destination.
Targeting is important for Boba Fett. So Epic gave him a built-in emote that you can only use with the Boba Fett skin. With this emote, the targeting computer folds down from his helmet and analyzes the environment.
Boba Fett's Starship Glider
Boba Fett's well-known ship, which he inherited from his father, Jango Fett.
The Slave One is a modified patrol and assault ship used by the notorious Mandalorian bounty hunter Jango Fett before the Clone Wars. Boba later inherited it from his father.
Fennec’s Ship Glider
Just as dangerous as its owner.
A dangerous bounty hunter flies through the universe with the right glider, of course. It's available in the Bounty Hunter Pack, but you can also buy it individually in the item shop for 800 V-Bucks.
Mythosaur Signet Back Bling
A symbol of Mandalore and its people.
The Mythosaur Crest back bling is included with the Fennec Shand outfit. Even if you wear it with another skin, you will always prove your allegiance with it.
Hutt Clan Symbol Back Bling
Those belonging to the Hutt clan often wore this symbol.
The Hutt Clan Symbol back bling is included with the Krrsantan outfit. A Wookie never steps onto the battlefield without it.
This Is The Way Emote
A mantra of the Mandalorians.
Need some Mandalorian mantra inspiration during battle? Then pick up this emote for 200 V-Bucks in the item shop.
We're back next week with another cool collaboration in our Fortnite Skin Introductory Series. Until then, check out the other articles on Paul Atreides or MJ from No Way Home.
