Epic Games' hit battle royale title, Fortnite, has no issues when it comes to having fresh crossover skins up for sale on their Item Shop. Even so, there are some skins that are just so iconic that they warrant an occasional return.

A good example of this is the John Wick skin.

One of the most popular skins ever to win Fortnite, Epic has decided to bring back the John Wick skin and put it up for sale in the Fortnite Item Ship once again.

If you weren't able to get your hands on the John Wick skin before, now's your chance.

How to Get the Iconic John Wick Fortnite Skin

Epic Games took to Twitter to announce the return of the iconic Fortnite John Wick skin and fans couldn't be more pleased to hear its return. But, while John Wick is the main highlight for the collection, there are other cosmetics sold as well. This includes the Sofia skin, as well as other cosmetics like pickaxes, that also came to the Item Shop along with it.

Buying the John Wick skin will cost you 2,000 V-Bucks while the Sofia skin is cheaper and will only set you back 1,500 V-Bucks.

The iconic Fortnite John Wick skin also has one of the more unique stories in the game.

Earlier during Fortnite's life-cycle, there was already a knock-off of the assassin available as a skin in Fortnite known as "The Reaper". The said Legendary Outfit was made available during Season 3 of Chapter 1 of Fortnite. It was a Tier 100 reward for that season's Battle Pass.

Epic Games even made sure to acknowledge this. The two skins were featured in the "Fortnite x John Wick" trailer as opposing sides.

Technically though, one could argue that The Reaper is the better skin of the two. Because, while the John Wick skin has been made available for sale periodically, The Reaper is an exclusive skin that has not been available since.

The Return of the Baba Yaga

Unfortunately, John Wick's return to Fortnite won't come with a new game mode. Previously, Epic Games added the limited-time mode, "Wick's Bounty", to Fortnite, when they first added John Wick to the game as a skin.

In this limited-time mode, players had to eliminate their targets to claim Gold Tokens needed until they had enough Gold Tokens to win the match.

While the return of the John Wick skin is not accompanied by a related mode, there are a couple of new and fun things to do in Fortnite as of now.

Fortnite is currently in Season 6 of Chapter 2, which introduced new concepts like being able to craft weapons and armors, new locations, wild animals, new monsters to beat, as well as a single-player story campaign.
