'Fortnite' Season 6 Battle Pass Skins, Emotes, Rewards: Worth the Price?
What does 950 V-Bucks get you this time?
Fortnite: Battle Royale Season 6 is here, and that means there’s a new Battle Pass with new skins, new emotes and a new cosmetic called “Pets” to unlock. But is the Fortnite Season 6 Battle Pass worth the price of admission? Here’s what you need to know.
Fortnite Season 6 Battle Pass Price
As always, the new Battle Pass costs 950 V-Bucks. That comes to roughly $10 in real-world currency, though if you’ve been playing regularly in Season 5 there’s a decent chance you have enough in-game cash saved up to cover the price.
Epic is also offering its usual Battle Bundle, which gets you the Battle Pass and unlocks the first 25 tiers of cosmetics, all for 2,800 V-Bucks. Then again, completing the challenges to unlock those skins and emotes is half the fun, right?
Fortnite Season 6 Battle Pass Skins
There are seven main character skins to unlock in Fortnite Season 6, and two of them unlock automatically as soon as you buy the Battle Pass: DJ Yonder (that robot llama thing from the teaser) and Calamity (a cowgirl-style character that you can upgrade over time as you progress through the season).
Next up is Giddy-Up, a hilarious skin that features a regular-looking Fortnite character straddling a giant inflatable llama. There’s even a pair of little inflatable legs to make it look like you’re floating while you go wading through Loot Lake.
Then there’s Fable, a Little Red Riding Hood-inspired skin complete with thigh-high boots and what looks like a corset made out of leather belts. After that is Dusk, a Halloween-themed skin that looks like it could be either a demon or just a goth.
Nightshade is an iteration on the popular Tomatohead skin, this time in a sleek leather outfit complete with leather hood. And finally, there’s Dire, a normal looking guy who transforms into a Werewolf as you make your way through the Battle Pass. You can even customize his colors.
Fortnite Season 6 Battle Pass Emotes, Pets, and More
Beyond new skins, there’s a ton to unlock in the Season 6 Battle Pass. That includes three pets (Bonesy the dog, Scales the dragon, and Camo the chameleon) that can sit on your back and react to what’s happening in the game.
There are also new Gliders, including a full picnic (pie included), a Gold Rush-era covered wagon, and a spooky swarm of bats. New contrails include jet engine exhaust, fireflies, bats, and a pair of flaming jack-o-lanterns, while new pickaxes let you wield a glowing axe and a DJ turntable.
There are also new emotes (you can do the running man!), sprays, and toys, plus a new option called Music Packs that lets you play music in the game. (We totally called that one, by the way.)
So is the Fortnite Season 6 Battle Pass worth it?
This might not be the most exciting Battle Pass we’ve seen so far (it’s tough to top the epicness that was Season 5), but Fortnite Season 6 is still pretty good.
If you know you’ll be playing a lot you might as well shell out for the Battle Pass, especially if you already have enough V-Bucks to do it. But if you’re not so sure you can commit to grinding out weekly challenges you might be better off spending your $10 elsewhere.
