One of the biggest differentiators of Fortnite is the partnerships with gigantic celebrities from around the world, such as singers, athletes and influencers to stimulate the community.
Over the years, and with the resounding success of the game, the number of these collaborations has increased. What brings from a skin to big live events and exclusive missions!
Now we will remember these incredible moments within Fortnite, just remember to comment here which is your favorite skin!
Let's start at the beginning, shall we? The first celebrity to appear in the game was DJ Marshmello.
The North American DJ held a live show on February 2, 2019, where he gathered more than 10 million concurrent players in the Epic Games Battle Royale, breaking the record at the time!
About 10 minutes long, the show included holograms and fireworks, surprising the community.
Marshmello also received a set consisting of his skin and other cosmetics, check it out:
Renowned actor Keanu Reeves came to Fortnite through the skin of John Wick. The partnership between Battle Royale and John Wick was to publicize the premiere of the third film in the franchise.
With that, a new temporary mode "Wick's Bounty" arrived in the game, along with a series of challenges that offered exclusive items to players.
Eventually, Epic Games releases skins of some Fortnite content creator, with their name and appearance. In a way, it's even a way of saying thank you to influencers who does an impressive job moving the community.
The first on that list was the world-renowned streamer “Ninja”. Next to him, we have “Bugha”, champion of the Fortnite World Cup in 2019, in addition to youtuber “Chica” and several others.
Recently, in December 2022, the Brazilian “Flakes Power” announced that he will also be part of this group, gaining his own in-game appearance.
For those who don't follow influencers, maybe it's not a big deal. But imagine a fan who can play with their favorite streamer – that's awesome!
Like DJ Marshmello, Travis Scott also hosted a live event in the game, which took place between April 23 and 25 in 2020.
Altogether, we had 5 shows, which followed this schedule pre-established by Epic Games.
With more than 12 million players connected simultaneously, the event broke the record previously held by DJ Marshmello.
Of course, in a huge event like this, we had quests that awarded cosmetic items, plus the Travis Scott skin along with some super cool outfits and styles.
One more singer to the list, but now a Latino.
On Halloween 2020 we had the event Fortnite: Afterlife Party , J Balvin had a special participation, doing a live show on October 31 of that year.
The show took place at Festa Royale and had some rebroadcasts on November 1st for those who missed the opportunity to follow it live.
Almost a year later, in August 2021, the Colombian artist had his Fortnite skin!
As well as influencers, Athletes also make some partnerships with Epic Games, having their appearances available in the item shop.
In football, we saw the arrival of Harry Kane, top scorer for the English national team, and Marco Reus, midfielder for the German national team.
Not to mention the Brazilian star Neymar Jr., who has also appeared and has his skin in Battle Royale.
Lebron James has arrived for basketball fans, one of the greatest players in history!

To close with a golden key, let's talk about MrBeast, the latest internet phenomenon.
