Solid Snake is the latest gaming icon to join Fortnite, bringing items and quests related to the Metal Gear Solid franchise.
Players can unlock Solid Snake through the Big Bang Battle Pass, which also grants access to various outfits, emotes, and loading screens.
The update also includes new weekly Fortnite quests, balance tweaks, and bug fixes.
Solid Snake is now the latest character to be added to the ever-expanding Fortnite universe. The massive battle royale is known for adding skins featuring characters and icons both from gaming and pop culture. Currently, there is a Fortnite and Family Guy crossover, which is just the latest in a long line of exciting collaborations. The newest update, however, finally introduces Solid Snake from the Metal Gear Solid franchise into Fortnite, along with some items and goodies fans of the acclaimed series are sure to appreciate.
Solid Snake is far from the first video game icon to join Fortnite. Kratos, Aloy, Master Chief, and Lara Croft, just to name a few, are all beloved gaming characters that were featured in previous seasons. Fortnite is not just relying on Family Guy and Metal Gear Solid to entice players, either. Right now, fans can still get their hands on My Hero Academia skins in Fortnite via the in-game store.
Family Guy Creator Explains Peter Griffin’s Buff Fortnite Skin
Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane explains why the Fortnite version of Peter Griffin is so swole, and how this collab happened in the first place.
Fortnite update v28.10 finally allows players to unlock Solid Snake via the Big Bang Battle Pass. With the update, Fortnite fans can now access the character as well as a slew of quests that are required to unlock various items, outfits, emotes, banner icons, and loading screens. The current Battle Pass is required to unlock Snake and his bevy of extras. The Big Bang Battle Pass for Chapter 5 – Season 1 can be purchased for 950 V-Bucks; 1,000 V-Bucks can be purchased from the in-game store for $8.99.
Solid Snake Unlockable Content in Fortnite
The latest Fortnite update features two pages of Battle Pass Quests that can be completed to unlock Snake-centric accessories. Completing tasks such as hiding in a cardboard box will unlock a new loading screen while knocking out entire pages will make new Solid Snake skins available. The various quests will remain open until March 8, 2024, at 2 AM ET, which likely marks the end of the current season.
In addition to Solid Snake’s inclusion, there have been several updates implemented as well as a handful of new weekly Fornite quests. Not to mention, the team has patched in some balance tweaks and bug fixes.
Also, Peter Griffin is still part of the current Battle Pass. Before his inclusion, the face of Family Guy had long been rumored to join Fortnite. Players looking to unlock the musclebound version of the adult animated comedy icon need to reach level 70. Gold-plated and fancy versions of the character can also be unlocked by completing bonus reward pages.

The Enforcer AR has received a slight increase in bullet speed, damage, and headshot damage (and a reduction in bullet drop). This AR was lagging and needed a boost to compete with other weapon options.
The Reaper Sniper Rifle has received a slight reduction in bullet speed (and an increase in bullet drop), as many Reaper snipes were too easy to land with little counterplay.
The Hyper SMG has received an increase in overall accuracy via tightened bullet spread. Like the Enforcer AR, this SMG was lagging and needed a boost to compete with other weapon options.
The Ballistic Shield has received a slight decrease in damage required to stagger the holder. This loadout option was often too powerful compared to others, especially in Zero Build.
Storm circle speed, sprint speed, and Energy regeneration have been reverted to match the same speed from Chapter 4. These reverted speeds better fit the current ideal pace of Fortnite BR.
The EMP Stealth Camo, Cardboard Boxes, and Anvil Rocket Launcher are not included in tournaments.
MAJOR BUG FIXES
Fixed an issue where players could sometimes be randomly eliminated in Snooty Steppes while walking along the cliffside.
Fixed an issue that could cause your crosshair to flick in another direction while you were sliding and aiming down sights with a scoped Sniper Rifle.
Fixed an issue where using the same Emote as a nearby player could result in you facing the wrong direction.
Fortnite is a massively popular game that has several modes, the most famous of which is the online battle royale mode. In this mode, players collect items, build structures, and battle it out to be the ultimate victor.
