After three years, the Plague Doc Skin has returned to Fortnite, and many believe that the Covid pandemic influenced its absence. If you have enjoyed the Fortnite version of Battle Royale, you will see this epic male player skin with the Scourge, which is the female version. The Plague Doc Skin can change the appearance of a player’s avatar but be realistic about the fact that you don’t get any added benefits or functions to the Plague outfit!
Initially, in 2018 it was released for the first time, and the skins gained popularity and, from time to time, went on sale – that was until the end of January 2020 when it made its last appearance. Since its return to Fortnite’s item shop, you can buy Plague and Scourge at 1500 V-Bucks each. Both styles are true to their ancestral beaked physicians from the 16th and 17th eras.
There is no introduction to Fortnite, but I will give you a short and sweet run down for those who might need to become more familiar with the game. You will find Fortnite’s free-to-play Battle Royale on almost any technology platform. It has gained popularity over the last few years as it supports crossplay over many modern media and continues to evolve with even more characters from franchises like Street Fighter, Dragonball Z, and Star Wars.
But with many buyable skins in the Fortnite item shop, it becomes challenging to return and rotate them as often as in the past. Another conundrum is when they don’t have enough V-Bucks and have to wait months for the return of their favorite skins. But this forms part of the excitement. If you are a Fortnite fan, you never know what you will find next in the item shop.
However, once the skins on the back burner for a long time get rotated again, it makes headlines in the Fortnite community. As the comeback or the Grim Medicine set has proven with the Plague Doc Skins. Some fans have waited impatiently for the spooky Fortnite skins to be back in the item shop for many months. Finally, Scourge and Plague have made their anticipated return after three years!
I don’t know why Epic Games have decided to add the Grim Medicine set at this point, but it most certainly has caused a joyous uproar in the Fortnite community. Perhaps it is Epic’s way of lifting player spirits after the unbalanced pandemic. Hopefully, with these skins back in the item shop, players can enjoy their avatars even more on the battlefield.
Whatever the return of the Plague Doc Skin is, one thing is for sure players will be able to embrace them and ensure their avatars look the part. I would, however, suggest running out of V-Bucks if you want to stay on top of the best skin.
