The next hero to join Fortnite’s massive roster of Marvel characters will be Ghost Rider, and based on a recent datamine, players now know that the new bundle will include his iconic chain whip as well as his burning motorcycle. Fortnite players will be able to equip themselves as Marvel’s bad boy antihero as soon as the Marvel Knockout Super Series is over.
Fortnite revealed that Ghost Rider will be the featured character for the next Marvel Knockout Super Series tournament. The second round of the championship started a few hours ago, and the top teams will receive early access to the Ghost Rider skin before it will be available in the in-game shop.
The Super Series is an exclusive format tournament in which teams of three fight against each other in the Marvel Knockout mode. The mode changes a player’s weapon with superhero abilities and the team with the most kill at the end of each round will progress to the next.

Similar to the Daredevil set that was launched alongside the Super Series’ first-round, fans guessed that the Ghost Rider skin will also be released along with his own pickaxe, glider, and back bling. Thanks to reputable Fortnite leaker and dataminer HYPEX, the Ghost Rider bundle has been located in the game’s recently updated files.
Along with the Ghost Rider skin, players can also avail of his iconic motorcycle glider and chain whip pickaxe. These items will obviously come together in a bundle that allows players to buy the entire set at a lower discounted price.
While Ghost Rider’s back bling is a bit larger than usual and is difficult to place in the hero’s fiction, the motorcycle and chain whip must have been a no-brainer for the game’s development team. It will be intriguing to witness how fans will utilize the Marvel superhero’s motorcycle. Will the glider come with its own unique animation letting players sit and grip the handlebars, or will it be another glider that makes use of the Silver Surfer’s animation?
Nonetheless, these new and upcoming cosmetics are some of the best to arrive in Fortnite in recent history. The motorcycle alone is worth buying even if players are not a fan of Ghost Rider. Although, no one could possibly resist the flaming skull and tight leather costume. If any Marvel character is worth buying in this season of Fortnite, it is absolutely Ghost Rider.
