After a year of anticipation, Fortnite has finally released the Shadow Midas skin. Players originally saw the character as the boss of Fortnitemares 2020, but were disappointed with Epic Games for delaying the skin's release.

He's been a shadow lurking for far too long. Finally he emerges— grab the Shadow Midas Outfit now!

In Fortnitemares 2021, players will be able to unlock the Shadow Midas skin. However, they might feel that the Halloween version of Midas is a little overpriced, and the article below explains why.

Shadow Midas skin in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8: Price, look, and more

The Shadow Midas skin is currently available in the Item Shop for 1,500 V-Bucks. Surprisingly, Fortnite doesn't have an added back bling with the skin and players only get the outfit for the price.

However, the Shadow Midas skin compensates for the lack of back bling with the Shadow Touch reactive effect. It grows with each elimination, and Midas turns more purple with it. Players can also turn the effect on or off.


Moreover, the Shadow Touch reactive effect applies the Midas' Shadow wrap to any equipped weapon. The wrap was initially available during Chapter 2 Season 4 as part of the Fortnitemares 2020 set.

Here are some cosmetic items that players can pair with Shadow Midas to make a sweaty combo:

  • Backblings- Ghost Portal (Purple), Dark Shield, Shackled Stone
  • Pickaxes- Dark Axe, Dread Oracle Axe, Moonrise
  • Gliders- Dark Glyph, Cube Cruiser, Wakandan Skyrider

Naturally, the majority of dark and purple themed skins match perfectly with the Shadow Midas skin.

Midas is one of the most popular Fortnite characters ever, and it comes as no surprise that the response towards the Shadow Midas skin has been overwhelmingly positive.
