Epic Games provides players with a high degree of customisation in the famous Battle Royale, allowing players to rock their favourite style. You can customise nearly everything from your character skin, pickaxe, gliders, etc. Some of the most popular skins in the game include crossovers that Epic Games often does with other franchises.

Epic Games partnered up with Marvel Studios to release an Avengers set. The set included a skin for Captain America & Black Widow, alongside multiple smaller cosmetic items. The set was released as a promotional piece for Avengers: End Game in April 2019. The OG Black Widow Fortnite skin was last sold in Chapter 1, Season 8, and hasn’t seen a resurgence up until now. This made Black Widow skin among the rarest Fortnite skin.

OG Black Widow Fortnite Skin is now available in the Fortnite item store after 4 years

The OG Black Widow Fortnite Skin was last spotted in May 2019 after the promotional offer ended. It features two versions – a blonde and a redhead skin variant. This skin is not confused with the Black Widow Snow Suit released in 2020 alongside the Black Widow solo film. The OG Skin is an Avengers: Headhunter skin that was the rarest Marvel cosmetic and the second rarest shop outfit.

Epic Games has given players a pleasant surprise as they have re-introduced the skin in the shop. However, you must be quick with your purchase as the skin is only available in the shop for 24 hours. After that, who knows when fans will see the skin again. The Black Widow Fortnite skin can be purchased from the Fortnite store for 1,500 V-Bucks, the same price as before.

While many were happy to see the skin re-appear in the game, some collectors seem upset by the decision. By making older skins re-appear, Epic Games has severely dropped the value of the skin. It is no longer the game’s second-rarest shop item, replaced by the World Warrior outfit.
