‘Fortnite’ and the Spider-Verse collide in new crossover
Fortnite‘s latest Spider-Verse crossover is here, introducing Miles Morales, Miguel O’Hara, web-shooters, and more.
Starting today (May 23), Fortnite players will be able to jump into the battle royale and take part in the Spidey-themed Week 11 Quests. These quests can be completed by using the newly added web-shooters, which can be picked up from the ground by exchanging Bars from Spider-Gwen.
Most of these Quests reward XP, while one of them rewards the Silk & Cologne (EI8HT version) Lobby Track. This Lobby Track features a song from the upcoming Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse film.

Players can also get their hands on the new Spider-Man (Miles Morales) and Spider-Man 2099 (Miguel O’Hara) skins from the Item Shop.
The two characters also have matching accessories, which can also be bought from the in-game store. The Spider-Man (Miles Morales) Outfit comes with the masked Earth 1610 alt Style and includes the Spider-Verse Portal Back Bling, as well as a pork chop with the Spider-Ham’s Mallet Pickaxe, which has the built-in Put ‘er There Emote.
Meanwhile, the 2099 Web Cape Back Bling comes with the Spider-Man 2099 skin, on top of the dual-wield 928 Axes Pickaxe. There’s also a special MEGA City Swing loading screen included in the new collection.
The crossover coincides with the upcoming release of Sony’s Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse film on June 2.
Epic Games recently announced that a ranked mode is coming to Fortnite, which will replace the battle royale’s Arena mode. The change has been implemented as of May 16, allowing players to rank up in Battle Royale and Zero Build.
