How to Get the Fortnite Season 5 Alien Skins


Fortnite is no stranger to crossover events. It's arguably the game that has pulled the concept off the most successfully. As such, the Fortnite Season 5 Alien skins are just the latest in Epic Games' long line of crossover events with famous and iconic franchises.

Season 5 is arguably the most crossover-filled season of Fortnite yet, with Ripley and the Xenomorph making an appearance this time around.

Scroll down below to know more about how you can get your hands on your very own Xenomorph and Ellen Ripley skins.

Where Can You Get the Fortnite Season 5 Alien Skins?

Getting your hands on the Alien Skins made available in Season 5 of Fortnite is far easier than you'd expect.

There's no challenge or quest that you need to complete to get the skins whatsoever. You don't even have to own a Battle Pass, which is good news for those hesitating to get one. Instead, all you have to do now is to go to the Item Shop and buy the skins there yourself.

Ripley herself is available for purchase, including her Nostromo Crew Outfit variant and the Weyland-Yutani Cat Carries. Naturally, Jonesy the Cat came along for the ride as well. Meanwhile, the Xenomorph Skin comes complete with a Xenomorph Tail Back Bling and a Xeno Manace built-in emote.

Lastly, you can also purchase the Space Gear Bundle to get the P-500 Power Loader Arm Pickaxe, the Cheyenne Dropship Glider, and the Burst Case Scenario emote.

As always, Epic Games did the source material a huge service with the quality of their skins. The aesthetic is very reminiscent of that of the classic 1979 film, including the look of Ripley. It's only a bonus at this point that players can drop down from the party bus and roam all throughout the island as the terrifying Xenomorph.
