Fortnite Solid Snake Release Date, Metal Gear Update

When is Solid Snake Coming to Fortnite

According to the in-game countdown, the release of Solid Snake in Fortnite is going to be January 23rd, 2023, which means he’s coming some fifty days after after Chapter 5 Season 1 begins. Which would make sense, because the 23rd of January is a Tuesday, which is when Fortnite updates often drop. You’ll then be able to earn all that stuff until March 8th, barring any unforeseen circumstances. Naturally, all of the Metal Gear-themed items will be rewards in the battle pass. We don’t know which levels they will be on, so that remains to be seen. Speaking of the themed items, let’s cover what you’ll be able to earn.

Fortnite Solid Snake Rewards

Now that we’ve covered the released ate of the Metal Gear update, let’s talk about the Fortnite Solid Snake rewards. While not much is known 100% officially, we’re pretty confident that the list below is complete. We’re talking three different variations of the Solid Snake skin and new looks for your glider, backpack, pickaxe and wrap. Of course, you’ll also unlock other rewards for moving through the battle pass, but we’re only focusing on the Metal Gear stuff here. I’d imagine the rest will be the usual fare. With all of that said, here’s the list.

  • Solid Snake skin / outfit
  • Night Vision Solid Snake skin / outfit
  • Old Snake Solid Snake skin / outfit
  • Stun Knife pickaxe
  • Metal Gear wrap
  • Metal Gear Mk. II backpack / back bling
