Epic Games has decided to add the default skins in Fortnite Chapter 2 - Season 4, and this has become instantly popular.

The Royale Originals bundle consists of four skins that reminds players of the early days of Fortnite Battle Royale. These four skins are The Headhunter Prime, Vintage Ramirez, Wildstreak One, and Vanguard Banshee.

Naturally, players ended up purchasing the Battle Classics bundle along with Rookie Spitfire Outfit. They then took to social media to put up enthusiastic posts about the "default" skins in Fortnite. The Battle Classics featured Jonesy, Hawk, Original Renegade, and Rookie Spitfire.

Popular streamers and players reacted passionately when these skins were added to the Fortnite Item Shop. The Royale Originals bundle and the Battle Classics bundle cost 2000 V-bucks each.

While several players and fans expressed how these bundles were a bit overpriced, most went on to purchase them. These packs have elements of nostalgia attached, and Fortnite players love the OG version of the game.

Fans posted clips with these default skins on Twitter and Reddit, showing how much they love this addition from Epic. In truth, the Fortnite community loves the old version of the game much more than the current one. The constant requests from pros and fans for the old map are quite prevalent on social media.

u/Jonathan287 posted a clip on Reddit showing the default emotes along with Rookie Spitfire. This was not all, as Epic decided to add the OG glider in the Item Shop as well.


Muselk, a popular Fortnite YouTuber, even made a video about the return of these default skins in Fortnite. He said:

"Ever since Fortnite Chapter 2 started, there's been something missing. Something about Fortnite that just didn't feel right. I'm talking about the OG default skins."

He added a hilarious touch by saying:

"The skins that we used to be able to use for free, now are like six bucks each. But the point is OGs are back; that's the most important thing to pay attention to."

Interestingly, in the old version of Fortnite, players could not choose which Default skin they got to play with. But Epic has now added a way for players to choose their favorite default skin.

Muselk noted that this was a significant improvement in Fortnite.

Fortnite is shifting to a winter theme

In an official statement, Epic Games mentioned the following:

"In the spirit of remembering the past while looking to the future, we're offering all Fortnite players β€” on all supported platforms β€” the free Throwback Axe Pickaxe. Starting 4th November 2020, this classic default Pickaxe from Fortnite Chapter 1 will be available through 15th January, 2021, for everyone both in-game and through the PlayStation Store."

It feels like Epic is determined to keep the Fortnite community happy with the onset of the winter season. As the leaks suggest, the Fortnite map will soon be taken over by a winter theme. This will mark the beginning of Winterfest 2020.

Fans and players are getting their hands on these default skins in Fortnite before Winterfest 2020 begins. Hopefully, Fortnite Chapter 2 - Season 4 Winterfest 2020 will be as successful as Fortnitemares was.
