Over the years Epic Games have made it a point to bring popular figures from all factions of the world to Fortnite. These collabs and crossovers are oftentimes in co-promotion of an upcoming release, like the Spider-Man gear that dropped ahead of the latest Marvel movie.
Another of the major collabs Fortnite has become famous for is the Icon Series, featuring some of the world's biggest stars. Past Icon Series crossovers have seen Ninja, Harry Kane, and more.
The next set of icons is set to drop as the Fortnite Silk Sonic Duo is on the way. Here's how to get Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak in Fortnite Chapter 3.
How to get Bruno Mars & Anderson .Paak in Fortnite
The Fortnite Silk Sonic set will be arriving in-game on Thursday, 10th February at 7 pm ET (12 am GMT). Both the Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak outfits will be available for purchase in the item shop and feature some dynamic Pickaxe/Back Bling gear.
Players who purchase the Bruno Mars outfit will also unlock the Sound Scepter Pickaxe (sold with the Outfit) which converts to Back Bling when not in Pickaxe-use. The Anderson .Paak outfit does not appear to contain a dynamic Pickaxe/Back Bling as both the Sonic Snare Back Bling (sold with the Outfit) and Boom Bap Pickaxe are listed.
Both the Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak Outfits come with alternative Styles as well as the default style, including a reactive Style for each Fortnite Icon.
