Fortnite joins forces with the NFL for football-themed outfits

Fortnite joins forces with the NFL for football-themed outfits

While this seems like a great idea that would help Fortnite players on console, this concept for editing is created by a fan, and there are now no official plans for Epic Games to make any changes to the editing tool in the game.

The latest Fortnite patch notes are here for update 6.22 and we've got a new gun, two new Limited Time Modes and some other changes. It can be found as a Rare, Epic or Legendary variant and deals 44, 46 or 48 damage respectively. The teams must work to eliminate the opposition while monsters spawn throughout the map.

Aside from the first LTM, we can also spot the return of Blitz. What's more, the recently introduced balloons have had their spawn rate nerfed, dropped from 12.2% to just 2.3%. However, Cube Monsters make it a little more interesting - they'll drop weapons or ammo when killed, with Gold monsters and monster spawners awarding you with Legendary items. From the Battle Royale Item Shop, you can also pick up a referee outfit, gliders, emotes, and resource harvesting tools with a football theme. Two teams will battle it out as Cube Monsters join the fight.


NFL outfits are coming to Fortnite, thanks to a partnership of the football league and Epic Games, the developers of the game.

What could have been the next community obsession in Fortnite: Battle Royale didn't last long.

These new skins will be available as of November 9th, at 7 PM ET. Earlier this year, Pittsburgh Steelers WR Juju Smith-Schuster, one of the game's best-spoken advocates, played on one of Ninja's squads, which also featured Drake and Travis Scott.


Nightstalker - During Evening and Night, gain 25% bonus movement speed.

Uses Phase Shift to steal health from enemies.

Super Siphon - Increases the healing of Phase Siphon to 32 base health.


Although players can change numbers, they won't see names on the back of the jerseys, neither their own usernames nor the names of National Football League players.
