Leaked Samsung Galaxy Scout skin coming to Fortnite

Leaked Samsung Galaxy Scout skin coming to Fortnite
Leaks on the Samsung Health App have revealed a brand new Galaxy skin coming to Fortnite Season 3, as part of an upcoming tournament. Unfortunately, it’ll be as tough to get hold of as the original Galaxy skin. 

Fortnite has become well known in the gaming world for its lucrative crossovers with a host of the world’s biggest companies and brands. Among Star Wars and Marvel, Chapter One brought the stratospheric Galaxy skin into Fortnite.

Despite its awesome aesthetics and positive feedback, the skin was pretty rare in Fortnite. Players who wanted it had to have purchased a Samsung Galaxy mobile phone, hence its scarcity in the game. Unfortunately, this new skin will be equally tough to get hold of.

Despite its official name as ‘Galaxy Scout’, it has already been nicknamed the ‘Galaxy Girl’; a female twist on the original Samsung Skin added back in 2018.

How to get Samsung Galaxy Scout Skin in Fortnite

While the first Galaxy skin was only unlockable through the purchase of a Samsung Galaxy mobile, players can get their hands on this one by participating in the Fortnite Galaxy Cup. This in-game tournament will take place from July 25-26, with registration opening on July 20. 

The event is anticipated to be mobile-only, and registration is only open to players who already own the original Galaxy skin. Hence, this new skin is expected to only be available to players who have already bought a Samsung Galaxy.

However, the Galaxy tournament requirements are not yet finalized by Epic, so some players may receive surprise invitations. Until then, it looks like only Samsung owners will be able to get their hands on this skin.
