The highly anticipated Fortnite x Marvel: Zero War comics didn’t really get a warm welcome owing to Epic Games messing up a blog post. After all is said and done, players can now get the comic codes digitally, and here’s how.
It all started with loopers buying Marvel Unlimited subscription to get the first comic book code. Redeeming the code would have granted them the Spider-Man Zero outfit, but as it turns out, the digital versions of the comics don’t have one.
Here’s how Marvel Unlimited subscribers and other players in the community can get their hands on the comic codes without buying the comics physically.
How to get Fortnite x Marvel: Zero War Issue #1 redeem code digitally
Following the blog post controversy, Epic Games has stated that anyone who’s bought the first issue digitally via Marvel Comics can reach out to Marvel Customer Support. The designated officials will guide them to get the cosmetics after verifying the purchase.
Having said that, it seems like Marvel’s Customer Support hasn’t been able to solve all the queries so far. Many players have complained about late replies while some were outright rejected by comiXology.
Here are some examples:
On the other end of the spectrum, a few players were able to get the code successfully and they can now don the Spider-Man Zero outfit in Chapter 3 Season 3.
How Marvel Unlimited subscribers can redeem codes for free Fortnite cosmetics
Buying the Fortnite x Marvel: Zero War comics physically is the most foolproof way of getting the redeem codes.
However, starting September 28, 2022, Marvel Unlimited subscribers (paid, and not on free trial) with a registered account who read all five issues will get an email. It will include the redeem codes for the first five cosmetic items as well as the code for the bonus cosmetic item.
While there are limited ways to get the redeem codes, the same doesn’t apply to cosmetic items. Only the spray from the 4th comic issue and the loading screen from the 5th comic issue are comic-exclusive. In contrast, Spider-Man Zero, the Iron-Man-based wrap, Wolverine-based pickaxe, and the bonus outfit will be up for grabs in the Item Shop later.
Hence, players should not worry about missing the Spider-Man Zero outfit even if they’re not into Marvel comics. They can wait for the desired skins to arrive in the Item Shop. Their release date and price should be public soon.
