The Shredder arrives in Fortnite soon … Are you ready?

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle's greatest adversary is coming to Fortnite. This legendary rivalry between the Turtles and Shredder dates back to the mid-80s, and the villain has become an icon across all media. Following Fortnite's successful Chapter 5 Season 1 launch, which featured a TMNT collaboration, it's fitting that the Shredder is next in line to become a Fortnite skin.

Today, we'll explain everything you need to know about the Shredder Fortnite skin, including when to expect to see and acquire it in-game.

When will the Shredder from TMNT arrive in Fortnite?

The Shredder arrives in Fortnite

Fortnite has been gearing up for the upcoming Ninja Turtles "Cowabunga" event following last week's teaser. Since then, various leaks in the scene have confirmed that the Shredder is part of this Fortnite TMNT collaboration. Based on the countdown, we have determined that the event will go live on Friday, February 9, at 9 a.m. ET.

When that time arrives, you can check the in-game Fortnite TMNT tab to see what the event offers. Based on the tab's layout, we expect to see Shredder as part of a separate TMNT Battle Pass. It's unclear whether you need to level through this Battle Pass to unlock the Shredder.

What does the Shredder skin look like?

The Shredder Fortnite skin leaked after the TMNT received their own in-game collection. As a result, most of those who frequent social media know what to expect. The leaked images indicate the Shredder will be one of the bulkier skins in the game. His helmet resembles Loki Laufeyson, but we won't know until the skin drops.

What else will be available as part of the TMNT Cowabunga event is a mystery, but eager fans are ready to see what Epic offers beyond the Shredder. We'll provide continuous updates as we move closer to the event start time on February 9. You can better prepare for the event and Shredder by completing the TMNT Fortnite Quests active in-game!
