Skins in Fortnite have always been an exciting part of the game for many players. We saw the Aquaman skin come in shortly followed by that of his nemesis, Black Manta. Captain America and his shield were available as well. And to add to that list, the new Galaxy scout by Samsung is debuting.


Fortnite announced major news for all android users a few days back, with the Galaxy Cup. Players on Android devices were set to compete and stood a chance to win the very same Galaxy Scout bundle.

For those worried about missing out on the bundle, happy news followed. Epic Games made sure not to disappoint anyone by announcing that the bundle would later be available for purchase in the item shop. Players who participated in a minimum of five games were awarded the Star Scout wrap.

Fortnite – Galaxy Scout bundle

Initially, there were some false rumors that the Galaxy Cup was exclusive to Samsung Galaxy users, but those were soon put to rest.

The Galaxy Scout bundle costs 2800 V-Bucks. However, the wrap is not in the bundle. The bundle includes:

Galaxy Scout Skin

Described as “discover victory in stars”, the Galaxy Scout Skin is of legendary rarity.

Nucleus Back Bling

Coming alongside the Galaxy Scout Skin, the Nucleus Back Bling is of the same legendary rarity.

Stardust Strikers

It would have been a bit of a disappointment if the bundle did not include any special weapons. The Stardust Strikers are pickaxes which you can use to “Hit’ em with star stuff”.

Celestia glider

This glider makes the skin look much more authentic being such an eye-catchy addition.

The last from the Galaxy cup, the Star Scout, is not available in the bundle. The weapon skin defines the whole point behind the galaxy bundle. Donning the wrap around the weapon is very appealing to look at.
