Every Fortnite battle pass has added a number of new skins that come alongside an emote, back bling, glider, and other accessories that are unlocked as players level up. These additions could be used with any skin, but Season 4 introduced special versions of these items that were tied to specific characters. Players worry that these new cosmetic restrictions will continue into future seasons, limiting their ability to customize as they see fit.
This change was introduced with various Marvel characters. Thor’s hammer, Mjölnir could only be used by characters that were worthy like Captain America and Thor. Dr. Doom’s glider and emote, alongside a number of other items, were also tied to specific heroes.
“I get Marvel, but Mave’s glider is stupid,” said Redditor ExtraTime101. This change was believed to only apply to Marvel characters, but now it’s continued into Season 5. Mave, one of the hunters you can unlock, features a glider specifically made for her. It can’t be used on other characters.
