One of Fortnite’s rarest skins has finally reappeared on the Item Shop after being missing for several Chapters.
The highly elusive Black Widow skin, considered one of the rarest in Fortnite’s history, has unexpectedly resurfaced in the Item Shop after an absence of over four and a half years.
Fortnite has accumulated an extensive array of skins through collaborations with various franchises and series over the years. While most of these skins make periodic appearances in the Item Shop, some have been consigned to the vault, seemingly never to return. Examples include the Trench Raider, Psycho Bandit, Kratos, John Wick, and Travis Scott skins.
Among these, the Black Widow skin stands out as an anomaly. Despite Fortnite’s numerous collaborations with Marvel, which introduced a multitude of heroes to The Island, the Black Widow skin, released in 2019, made only a handful of appearances in the Item Shop after its April debut. Subsequently, it remained absent from Fortnite for a staggering 1,668 days, unlike other Marvel skins that reappeared regularly.
The reasons behind the prolonged absence of the Black Widow skin, especially when its Snow Skin variant made multiple appearances during the same period, have never been entirely clear. However, the wait has finally come to an end, as the Black Widow skin has unexpectedly reemerged in the latest rotation of the Item Shop. This development not only resets the timer but also allows devoted fans of Natasha Romanoff to play as her non-Winter variant.
While the return of this rare skin is a cause for celebration among Fortnite enthusiasts, it is noteworthy that the reappearance is not entirely complete. iFireMonkey has pointed out that the Widow’s Bite pickaxe, missing for four and a half years, is absent from the bundle and is not part of the current Item Shop offering.
