Only one true Solid Snake variant will be added as part of the Fortnite X Metal gear intersection. Old Snake can be earned, which fans will know is mainly featured Metal Gear Solid4. There are minor variations where you can add or take away Snake’s binoculars, but that’s it for now.

Fortnite is set to add Solid Snake from the Metal gear series. He is the bonus skin this season and brings with him a whole host of espionage-oriented items. As with most bonus skins, Solid Snake was not available at first Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1, instead of unlocking mid-season. We have to wait a little longer, but luckily not too long.

The current season of Fortnite has added weapon attachments to the ongoing Battle Royale shooter. Not only that, but Peter Griffin from the TV show Family man has joined the fun, appearing as one of many mini-bosses each holding a shield-regenerating medallion. Solid Snake will be available soon, along with a very cool skin variant.
