The Walking Dead Joins Fortnite – Rick Grimes, Daryl and Michonne Skins

One of the best and most popular Fortnite skin collections and crossovers has been the Walking Dead crossover. This event brought three characters from the Walking Dead Universe into the Fortnite realm. The characters that were featured in this Fortnite crossover are Rick Grimes, Daryl Dixon, and Michonne. Each of these came with their unique back bling and pickaxe to match. Ever since the announcement and especially after the release these skins have been incredibly sought after.

Why Are These Skins So Popular?

One of the integral elements that aided the success of this crossover is the immense popularity of The Walking Dead. A television series based on a comic of the same name has been incredibly popular ever since 2010. The post-apocalyptic horror show follows a group of survivors as they navigate the world. The zombie setting is also a great nod towards the Fortnitemares event as well as the campaign of the game.

As the show is still running there are many fans to this day that are invested in the plot and characters. Fortnite through this collaboration has brought forward three of the most popular favorites from the television series. This lets fans of the show who have watched it for decades play with their favorite characters. Furthermore, even if you are not a fan of the show the skins look incredible in the game. Of all of them, Rick Grimes is by far the most popular being the main character for most of the show. 

Alongside Rick Grimes and the other skins Fortnite also released a limited-time event at the same time. This event mirrored the post-apocalyptic setting of The Walking Dead and allowed players to experience the game in a new way. This game mode is incredibly fin and can be played in the custom playlist to this day. Additionally, the addition of Rick Grimes and the party to Fortnite expanded the world and its story. The community immediately flocked to set up social media platforms ablaze with fan theories and excitement regarding the crossover. 

Will The Be Another The Walking Dead Crossover?

Fortnite is a very large game with a wide sea of possibilities for crossovers as they take almost any media and adapt it. That said there have been instances where the game has gone back to add more skins to one collection. This is a possibility if Epic Games decides to collaborate with The Walking Dead again.

If this would happen we speculate it would be during a phase where the TV show is very popular. This could be at the start of a new season or nearing the finale where all the excitement lies. As of now, there has been no information or leaks about another crossover. But who knows all we can do is stay hopeful and wait to see if we get more characters from our beloved show in Fortnite.

When Will Fortnite The Walking Dead Skins Return?

Due to the way the Fortnite item shop works, it can be quite difficult to get your favorite skin quickly. To do this you have to get quite lucky especially if you are looking for a rare skin such as these ones. 

To get your favorite skin in Fortnite you have only one thing to do, and that is to wait. While this is probably not what you want to hear it is sadly the only option. We recommend that you have either the V-Bucks handy or are prepared to get some once your skin comes up. Since the Fortnite shop resets daily you will have to check to see if your skin is inside it every day. This can be quite a hassle because you have to boot into the game every day. To avoid this and make your life easier simply utilize a third-party app or website that posts the item shop daily. Tools like fortnitetracker and others are amazing, quick, and very accurate. 

Now that you know how to get your skin we wish you the best of luck in your skin-hunting adventures.

When Was Fortnite Rick Grimes In Shop?

A good way to look when your skin should come to the shop is to check out their previous appearances. For example, let’s look at the most popular from the collection Rick Grimes. As it is a skin from a collection it always comes alongside the rest. This has happened multiple times across the two years it has been out. At the time of writing this article, the last appearance was on October 23. 2023. Depending on when you are reading this this date can be different as it might have come up in the rotation. 

With the current state of the rotation, the skin has been gone for about a month which means that you won’t have to wait too long hopefully. It takes skins usually around three months to rotate in the shop. In some extreme cases such as seasonal skins for Christmas or Halloween, you could wait much longer. Hopefully, we will see the The Walking Dead crossover set come back to the shop in the near future.
