the most successful Fortnite event to date, the time 10 million people logged in at once to watch an EDM concert in a video game that was better than it had any right to be.
But a while ago, mobile players who had purchased the Marshmello skin found that couldn’t use it in the game. Epic had disabled it for a long stretch of time to fix an issue with it, though try as I might, I cannot figure out what the issue actually was.
Epic is never one to take something away, even temporarily, without giving something in return, so it’s been revealed that if you own the Marshmello skin and log in now, you will be rewarding a special bonus prize for your patience, a Marshmello wallpaper modeled after the concert sign for the event, an item that doesn’t exist anywhere else in the game.
To get this, you do not have to be a mobile player or have experienced the disabling glitch for yourself, you only need to own the Marshmello skin. But the other items, the pickaxe, glider, don’t count. Just the skin. If you didn’t own the skin ahead of this and are a heavy wallpaper collector, fortnite v bucks generator you might just be out of luck, as it’s unclear if anyone else will ever be able to get this wallpaper outside of this very specific situation.
It’s also not clear if the Marshmello skin will ever return. A sequel concert from the exact same artist does seem somewhat unlikely, so the Marshmello skin may actually make its way into the hall of fame as a rare skin that doesn’t rotate back around into the store, not even during specific holidays like we’re seeing with Sgt. Clover or Skull Trooper.
It’s not clear how long you have to claim this wallpaper. It’s possible it might be indefinitely, but if you want to be safe, I’d log in at least once this week to make sure you pick it up. As far as I can tell Epic hasn’t even made an official announcement about this yet, this is just something that players discovered when they logged in, so I figured I’d get the word out here if Epic doesn’t want to make a big deal about how they had to disable a skin for a stretch of time previously.
