Fortnite is “centralizing” within it more and more narrative universes particularly popular. On the other hand, the Epic Games title can afford to “make the best of it” in the video game industry, given the enormous success achieved by its leading production (as of May 2020, Fortnite has exceeded 350 million registered users).
You’ve also noticed the “great additions” made recently in the game, and in this regard you’re wondering how to unlock the skin of Loki on Fortnite, since you’ve heard that you can impersonate the iconic character of the Marvel comics during their raids between Gattogrill and Holly Hedges (just to name two known locations of the map of the title of Epic Games).
If this is the case, do not worry: below you can find all the information you need. Among other things, I can assure you that reaching your goal will not take long. What do you say? Are you ready to become the God of Deception on Fortnite? Are you? Very well. You just have to continue reading the tutorial. With that said, all that remains is for me to wish you a good read and enjoy!

Before going into the details of the procedure on how to unlock the Loki skin on Fortnite, I think you might be interested to know more about this possibility.
Well, the Loki skin was launched during Season 7 of Fortnite Chapter 2. To be clear, this is the same Season in which Rick Sanchez from Rick and Morty was also introduced. However, the latter arrived on June 8, 2021, while Loki has been available within the Epic Games title since July 1, 2021.
All this after other excellent arrivals in Fortnite, which in Season 6 of Chapter 2 saw the debut of characters such as Lara Croft from Tomb Raider and Neymar Jr, the famous Brazilian footballer. In short, between fictional characters and really exist, the title of Epic Games has several arrows in his bow.
As you may already know, the subtitle of Season 7 of Chapter 2 of Fortnite is Invasion, and it indicates the fact that aliens have arrived in the world imagined by Epic Games to wreak havoc and show off their cutting-edge technologies: between flying saucers, lasers and scanners, users have many possibilities to explore in this sense.
In this context, you understand that using a costume that of Loki can actually be a good choice, since the God of Deception is contextualized well where there is “chaos”.
Net of this, the character of Loki, coming from the Marvel comics, in July 2021 is particularly in the spotlight. In fact, he is also the protagonist of the TV series of the same name made exclusively for the Disney+ streaming service. In short, the popularity of the character can certainly not be questioned, and it is therefore clear why Epic Games is pointing in general to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (who said Thanos?) and the world of superheroes (among others, Wolverine, Aquaman and Deadpool).
In any case, before leaving with the directions to achieve your goal, we would like to point out that the skin of Loki will remain available on Fortnite for a limited time. In fact, being part of the Fortnite Crew in July 2021, presumably it will be difficult to get the costume after this last month.
In this case, then, the “expiration date” is even narrower than the end of Season 7 Chapter 2, which is instead set for September 12, 2021. For this reason, make sure to follow the tutorial in the correct time frame, i.e. July 2021, in order to avoid any unwanted purchases.
How to unlock the Loki skin on Fortnite
As mentioned in the preliminary chapter, the Loki costume is only available on Fortnite through the July 2021 rewards of the Fortnite Crew subscription.
This means that you have to make this kind of paid subscription to get access to the much coveted skin. Let me remind you that Fortnite Crew is priced and that the benefits of the subscription include the Current Season Battle Pass, 1,000 V-Bucks per month and a monthly bundle of exclusive items.
Just the latter in July 2021 features Loki Laufeyson’s costume, Loki’s Mantle decorative back, the Chariot Chitauri hang glider and Loki’s Welcome loading screen. Of course, if you decide to keep your subscription active, you’ll get more benefits in the months to come.
In addition, the fact that the current Season’s Battle Pass is included in the Fortnite Crew subscription can give you access, if you haven’t already, to rewards like the mutated alien Kimera costume (just having the Battle Pass to get it) or Rick Sanchez from Rick and Morty (reaching page 10 of the Battle Pass via the star and level system and unlocking all rewards).
In short, Epic Games has set up Fortnite’s Crew membership in such a way that it actually represents a method of accessing a bit of all the exclusive costumes that are launched (excluding, for example, the Shop bundles).
If you’re interested in this possibility, which during Season 7 of Chapter 2 of the Epic Games title is in fact the only way to get the skin of Loki, just start the game, enter the main menu of the Battle Royale mode and go to the SHOP. After that, scroll down the page, select the Fortnite Crew box and press the JOIN THE CREW button (or similar, depending on the platform you’re using).
In any case, I recommend that you take a look at the indication at the bottom left of the screen. It reads: “Already purchased your Season 7 Battle Pass? Get 950 V-Bucks with a new subscription. […] Only valid for current Battle Passes not received by joining Fortnite Crew, with a one-time refund of 950 V-Bucks.” Simply put, if you’ve already purchased the current Season’s Battle Pass, you’ll receive 950 V-Bucks as a “refund” by subscribing to the Fortnite Crew.
Please note that V-Bucks represent the currency used in the Fortnite Store. This means that through this reimbursement you may be able to get other skins that you may have already had your eye on for some time.
For the rest, the payment system related to the subscription varies depending on the platform from which you are making the purchase (the procedure is, in fact, the same on all platforms on which Fortnite is available). In any case, you shouldn’t have any particular problems completing the transaction, as you usually only need to set a valid payment method and confirm your intention.
How to use the Loki Laufeyson costume on Fortnite
How do you say? You’ve figured out how to get the Loki skin on Fortnite by following the directions I provided in the previous chapter, but you don’t know how to set up the God of Deception costume to use it in battle? No problem, I’ll explain how to do it right now!
In fact, the procedure for doing this is very simple: once you start Fortnite, go to the main screen of the Battle Royale mode, press on the tab on top and select the icon of the skin, the first that is located in the upper left.
Perfect: now all you have to do is select the Loki costume you got earlier and press the SAVE AND EXIT button, in order to apply the changes. By doing so, the next time you play any Fortnite game you’ll be playing as the God of Deception.
In short, now you know everything you need to know about the possibility of getting Loki within the Epic Games title.
