How to get the Mistborn Kelsier skin in Fortnite
Epic Games have added Kelsier from Brandon Sanderson’s Mistborn novels as a new skin in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 6. Here’s how you can get this neat cosmetic for yourself.
Fortnite Season 7 is just around the corner, so there’s speculation about what new content will be in the update. It seems that aliens will be arriving to abduct players in the next season, but fans are wondering about new skins are coming to the game.
Now, it’s been confirmed that Epic Games are planning a crossover with Brandon Sanderson’s Mistborn novels, and a new Mistborn Kelsier skin has been added to Season 6 as part of the Cosmere Castaway set.

This collaboration was first teased in a tweet in Fortnite’s official Twitter account, which referenced Kelsier from the fantasy epic Mistborn novels. This main character is known as the “Survivor of Hathsin.”
Brandon Sanderson then confirmed the crossover in a Reddit post. Kelsier is now available as an in-game skin in the Fortnite store until May 28, 2021. Simply head over there, and purchase it for 1,600 V-Bucks.
It comes with a masked “undercover” variant as well. You can also get the Hemalurgic Spikes Back Bling, Volcanic Glass Daggers Pickaxe, and a Kelsier-themed Loading Screen from the Item Shop.
Sanderson made it clear that this isn’t going to be a major event. “They’ll release more, but don’t expect a huge crossover event,” he wrote. Meaning that we can expect to see more characters join the fray eventually.
This is still exciting news for fans of both franchises, and it remains to be seen what other cosmetics will arrive from the Mistborn series.
With Fortnite Season 7 set to go live on June 8, you can try completing the new Foreshadowing Quests in the last weeks of Season 6. One of these requires you to investigate a downed Black Helicopter, while another one has you find and repair broken telescopes across the map.
