After a litany of taunts that took place today on social media, Epic Games made things official and announced that Ant-Man is now available to buy at Fornite. The iconic Marvel superhero is one of the final characters to be added to Season 5 of the popular Battle Royale shooter, but he could also be one of the coolest.
As usual, Ant-Man isn’t the only thing that has come to Fortnite in this new drop of skin. While the character skin for the shrinking superhuman looks great in its own right, the accompanying gear is pretty great too. In addition to buying Ant-Man on your own, Fortnite Players can also snag a new pickaxe that is simply an oil on a toothpick. It’s a cute addition that fits Ant-Man’s smaller size. Lastly, a new glider has also been added which is of course just an ant.
I’m sorry I didn’t see you there Ant-Man.

As mentioned, Ant-Man will actually be one of the last new skins to be added to Fortnite here in Season 5. The game’s current Battle Pass is scheduled to end on March 15, which means Season 6 is right around the corner. And while we don’t know what Epic might have in store for this new season of content, it will surely see with it the addition of many more characters from popular media.
Once again, Ant-Man is available to buy this second in the Fortnite object shop. It doesn’t matter if you play on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch, PC, or mobile devices, you should be able to spend your own V-Bucks to grab the beloved superhero.
