It's time for another DC comics collaboration in Fortnite. Idris Elba's Bloodsport from the recently released Suicide Squad 2 will be has made an appearance in the popular battle royale as of August 4. Here are all the details
Suicide Squad 2 was released recently, and you know what that means – more DC Comics x Fortnite skins are coming. The next superhero coming to Fortnite will be no other than Bloodsport. The latter is played by Idris Elba in Suicide Squad 2 and the star actor was also the one to make the big reveal. The skin appeared in the Fortnite Item shop and now we see exactly how Bloodsport got the Fortnite treatment.
How do you get Idris Elba’s Bloodsport Skin in Fortnite
Simply open up your Fortnite Item Shop and use V-Bucks to buy the Bloodsport Bundle or you can pay 1500 V-Bucks for the skin alone.
Bloodsport is the next superhero outfit in Fortnite. It started when Suicide Squad 2 director, James Gunn, posted a short clip on Twitter. The latter featured Idris Elba and gave us a glimpse of Bloodsport in action.
The video is only 10-seconds long and shows the upcoming Bloodsport skin in Fortnite. If we had to guess, more members of Suicide Squad 2 will be making their way into Fortnite. John Cena played another character named Peacemaker, so that's a good possibility.

Wait, Who’s Bloodsport?
If you haven't watched the movie, and you're wondering who the hell Bloodsport is, worry not, you're not alone. Bloodsport is a villain from Superman's rogue gallery. He was a mercenary who got hired to put down the Man of Steel with a kryptonite bullet. Needless to say, he failed in his task and ended up in prison.

The plot of Suicide Squad 2 picks up from there, as Bloodsport gets hired to go on a suicide mission. Bloodsport doesn't actually have any superpowers but still possesses some abilities (according to ComicVine):
- Unarmed Combat
- Weapon Master
He doesn't actually teleport himself, only weapons when he needs some. There's no doubt that having Idris Elba play Bloodsport made the character a lot more interesting.
