Even though the initial response to the subscription was great, the latest Fortnite Crew pack has divided the community.

Should Fortnite Crew skins be based on collaborations?

Epic Games has a long history of collaborating with brands, artists, and games to provide Fortnite players with some unusual events and skins. Fortnite’s previous season, Chapter 2 Season 4, was a huge collaboration with Marvel. From Iron Man to Venom, the previous season had a bunch of skins based on Marvel characters.

Such collaborations clearly benefit the game, as they attract a larger audience towards it. Despite having a disappointing start to 2020, Fortnite managed to end the year on a progressive note, thanks to the Marvel-based season and big names like Travis Scott performing live in Party Royale.

Considering these factors, a collaboration with DC Comics for a Green Arrow skin shouldn’t have been a surprise for anyone.

However, it seems many members of the Fortnite crew weren’t expecting a collaboration skin for their $11.99. As advertised by the developers, these skins are exclusive for crew members and will never be sold to non-crew members. Accordingly, the former might have wanted the developers to put in more effort in these skins.

Just like Marvel, DC Comics has fans from around the world. There are a plethora of characters who have their separate fan-base, and Green Arrow is one such character. Naturally, a lot of his fans are happy to finally play as their favorite DC superhero in Fortnite.

Some players also claim that the Green Arrow looks great, regardless of him being a DC Comics character. Along with the outfit, the bundle also has a Tactical Quiver back bling and Boxing Glove Arrow harvesting tool.
