Fortnite item shop: The final Season 2 skin is basically Mysterio

The Fortnite Device event (AKA the Doomsday event that will lead us out of Season 2 and into Fortnite Season 3) is almost here, but Epic is giving us one last snazzy new look. The Cyclo skin is now available in the item shop, but will be gone soon. Here's a look.

I wouldn't blame you for thinking that Marvel scored another crossover deal with Fortnite. That skin looks mighty similar to the classic Spider-Man villain Mysterio, with the fishbowl mask and stuntman suit. Add a few bursts of electricity floating around its body and maybe it could even be a wonky Electro skin.

But it actually looks like the Cyclo skin was actually shown off weeks ago, when Fortnite data miners discovered a new loading screen. The image shows Midas looking wistfully at the same suit propped up in a glass case, the reflection of a woman (whose photo is on Midas' desk) appearing in the glass.

All in all, it looks like Midas will use this suit in some way to enact his doomsday device event coming up literally later today at 11am PT.

You can get your mitts on the Cyclo skin in the Fortnite item shop for a whopping 2,000 V-bucks, or roughly $18-$20 USD.

There's also a rad cape available for a separate purchase, but it looks like Epic has disabled it for now.

Make sure to stick around today for our coverage of the Fortnite Device event.
