The TMNT crossover in Fortnite continues today (Friday 9th February), with Shredder and Splinter skins being added to the game – following on from the introduction of everyone’s favourite heroes in a half-shell in December 2023.


Four new TMNT skins have been added since Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello and Raphael arrived — players can now also get April O'Neill, Shredder, Super Shredder and Splinter. And yep, they all have LEGO Fortnite versions, too.

We now know how to get all these new TMNT outfits, and the crossover isn’t stopping with just new skins.

New emotes, cosmetics, loading screens and much, much more is available as well (just look at the in-game TMNT tab, and the Item Shop, to find them all).

Read on to get your first look at Shredder and Splinter in Fortnite, and to find out how to unlock them. The cowabunga can never end.

When did Shredder come to Fortnite?

The time has come! Shredder is available in Fortnite now, having arrived on Friday 9th February at 2pm GMT.

The arrival of Shredder was heralded in a dedicated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles tab on the game's main menu, where a dramatic countdown was hosted, so this doesn't exactly come as a huge surprise.

With the countdown having ended, it's now true that Shredder, Splinter, Super Shredder, April O'Neill and the four turtles are all available now in Fortnite.

The Fortnite TMNT event, officially named Cowabunga, will end on Tuesday 27th February at 2pm GMT. The next Fortnite season will launch less than a week later. So don't miss your chance to get all these skins!

How can I get Fortnite's Shredder and Splinter skins?

To get the Shredder skin in Fortnite, you need to buy the Premium Reward track for 1,000 V-Bucks via the TMNT tab on the Fortnite main menu.

To get the Super Shredder skin in Fortnite, you need to complete the Premium Reward track, where Super Shredder is the very last reward unlockable on the list.

To get the Splinter skin in Fortnite, you need to head to the Item Shop and buy the iconic mentor for 1,500 V-Bucks.

To get the April O'Neill skin in Fortnite, you'll also need to visit the Item Shop and hand over 1,500 V-Bucks.

The turtles themselves — Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello and Raphael — are in the Item Shop too. They cost 1,600 V-Bucks each, or 3,400 V-Bucks as a bundle of four.

If you do decide to get involved with the TMNT Premium Reward track in Fortnite (which is the only way of getting Shredder skins at the moment), you'll have plenty to keep you busy.

You'll need to 'complete quests to find ooze', which will gradually enable you to move through 11 tiers of rewards. Note: there is a free rewards track, but that cheaper option does not earn you any skins.

Beyond the skins, there are emotes and items to earn. And in the Premium Reward track, you can also get a Krang back-bling that looks really cool.
