There’s a brand new Fortnite Starter Pack releasing soon in-game. Named the Red Strike Pack, this bundle is perfect for players who don’t want to spend at least 1,000 V-Bucks for a single cosmetic. Included with the Red Strike Pack are a skin, back bling, and 600 V-Bucks.
We’ve seen a starter pack in Fortnite for multiple seasons. Usually releasing towards the middle of a season, these packs are more so catered to newer players. However, a solid amount of players, both casual and veteran, end up purchasing this bundle.
While nothing too flashy, these starter pack skins are usually well-designed. They often revolve around a particular color or theme and always include a back bling for the skin. Sometimes another cosmetic, such as a pickaxe or wrap, comes with it as well.
Although, according to ShiinaBR on Twitter, there won’t be any additional cosmetics in the Red Strike Pack. Here’s what the user detailed about the pack on Twitter.
There will be a new Starter Pack very soon! It's called "Red Strike Pack" and contains an Outfit, a Back Bling & 600 V-Bucks!

While we now know what will be included, we still need an image of the Red Strike skin. FNBRLeaks has us covered there.
The Red Strike skin is the front character in this screenshot. A very simplistic look, this skin pairs an assassin look with some red stripes across the outfit. Though not as intricately designed as some of the other starter packs, sometimes a simple approach is the better option.
While we have an image and description of the Red Strike Pack, we still don’t know when it will release. As mentioned above, Epic Games likes to release these starter packs during the middle of the season. However, with the files already in the game, our guess is we won’t have to wait much longer for this pack to become available.
In the past, starter packs could be purchased for $4.99. Though with the pack gifting you 600 V-Bucks, you’re earning more than you’re spending.
We will be sure to keep you updated on when this pack will release! Stay tuned to Daily Esports for all updates on the Red Strike Pack and Fortnite coverage.
