The reason for this surprising turn of events is due to an error in Epic's communication during the release of the skin.
Originally, via Fortnite's official blog post regarding the skin, it was established that the Cyberdyne Salute Emote was a built-in item, meaning it could only be used with the outfits from the Terminator franchise.
As it turns out, the emote, which is a nice reference to Terminator 2's ending, can be used in combination with any skin in the game, with Epic Games quickly updating their post, confirming the free refund for those looking to get their money back.
"We have updated this blog to reflect that the Cyberdyne Salute Emote is not a built-in Emote included with the purchase of the T-800," the update reads

The refunds will be available next week with Epic Games promising a notification will pop in-game to let players know when they can start issuing their refunds.
