Fortnite Season 5 is all about two things: hunting, and multi-verse-timey-wimey shenanigans. Last week we got the god-slayer Kratos, and yesterday, at the Game Awards, the next legendary hunter was revealed: The Master Chief gets his very own Fortnite skin!

Over the course of Fortnite Season 5, several world-famous hunters have and will make their way to the popular Battle Royale Island. Due to Zero Point, portals have opened up and the new characters are coming to Fortnite from other worlds as a result of... blah, blah, blah... Look, we're not here for lore, but for the cool skins and items! A bunch of them were announced yesterday at the Game Awards. Most notably, a familiar big green warrior was revealed: the Master Chief from Halo!

The Master Chief is in Fortnite Season 5! As you can see, his iconic power armor has been recreated to perfection, and looks really bloody cool. We are sure that you will cut a fantastic figure as the legendary Spartan, and will blast your opponents to Infinity (pun intended)...

Master Chief will be accompanied by a dizzying assortment of new associated items, modeled after familiar elements from Halo! Chief's Gravity Hammer, for example, serves as the equivalent of a pickaxe. The UNSC Pelican troop carrier, one of the most iconic vehicles in Halo, will be joined by the legendary Warthog, and so on... The UNSC carrier will be present in Fortnite Season 5 as a glider skin and the latter as an extremely amusing emote, in which your character jets around on a mini-Warthog.

As usual, this new package also came in the form of a fun announcement trailer, which you can watch here!

As always, the Master Chief skin costs 1,500 V-Bucks, the hammer 800, the Pelican glider 1,200, and the Warthog Junior emote costs 500 V-Bucks. But you can also buy all items in one package for 2,600 V-Bucks!
