Fortnite, over time, has introduced a lot of DC characters to the game including Batman, Catwoman, Aquaman, The Joker, Harley Quinn, and more. And all these characters were well-received. Bloodsport will surely be a great addition to the list.

The skin looks menacing, capable, and deadly. The pickaxe people can see Bloodsport using in the attached video will probably also be available, as well as the container-type object on his back.

The devs have not yet disclosed how the skin will be priced. But, players expect it to be in the same ballpark as other comic-book skins.
