  1. i wanna get this skin

  2. This skin is overpowerd

  3. I wanna date this dude

  4. This is my favorite skin

  5. When is summer drift leaving the item shop please thanks

    1. I get kinda flirty when I see summer drift

      1. Well guess what i look exactly like him xD no joke

    2. The summer skins have stayed in for a few days, so that would be my guess, but we don’t know when it’ll leave for sure.

  6. He is sooooooooo hot.

    1. ive said it once and ill say it again….. i look just like him

  7. I will buy the whole set and this is the only summer set i buy but its gonna be expensive

    1. So do you think it will drop this month?

      1. I dont know man it seems not😕

        1. I think not because I remember when there dropt this one last year people where complaining about it because it basically the same as the season 5 skin. I have it. But don’t know or there bring it back

  8. When will drift come to top secret chapter2 season 2

  9. In summer 2020 I hope they do a swimsuit outfit for catalyst as well

    1. I am imagining that right now

  10. i wait 2 months for this skin…
    Epic plz show up in shop again ;-;

  11. Should I get Summer Drift if it comes back out? I couldn’t get the original Drift because I joined in season six and I couldn’t get Catalyst because I took a break from the game in season ten.

  12. Do you think this skin and other summer skins will come in summer 2020 i really wanna buy his wrap and dual edges i have the normal drift but i like summer drift more tbh i don’t really mind this isn’t a style for normal drift

    1. All those skins could show up again whenever. This was in the shop again recently.

  13. i tought it was an awesome skin at first cause i like drift but now i regret buying him so much i would rather buy the starfish skin its amazing. like why would i buy summer drift while i have the original omggggg :(((

  14. I want the summer drift skin to come back on Fortnite in the item shop

  15. They should make like a event where the original drift will come back…
    I’m quite upset that its not the same. I was ripped off for that, I liked the old drift better.. I’m picky with my fortnite things.. and I just think that the new drift looks very… Off :/ I want old drift back :c

    1. All battle pass skins won’t ever be released again so sorry 🙁
      I got the s5 battle pass so I have him

  16. Hi I was absent the day of the drift skin. Do you have any idea if it’s gonna come back this year?? Please respond even if you don’t know.

    1. Yes, it will probably return for at least a day.

  17. Will summer drift come out again

    1. Most likely.

  18. Honestly, I don’t think Epic Games made this free for Drift owners because some people weren’t able to buy the Season 5 Battle Pass, so they wanted to make it available for everyone. Summer Drift is just a casual reskin of Drift. I don’t see why so many people with the Season 5 Battle Pass are so mad, this skin is just for people who want Drift but don’t have him.

  19. It would be cool if it was a selectable style for drift but you would have to do challenges and there would be a time limit until season 9 ends. Or maybe they could’ve just released the summer drift skin but it was the one with the shirt and the one without the shirt would be a free style.

    1. I know if they are gonna re-release him the least they could do was give the OG drifts a style. im pretty upset…

    2. I mean a free style for normal drift owners

  20. How long is this skin available for?

    1. Cop it now or never because i don’t think it’s in the shop tommorow or it will take a long time to come back.

    2. It’s usually a couple days on new skins, but could be longer because of the event.

  21. The skin is good

  22. It literally costed you 950 v-bucks. It should be legendary like normal drift and battle pass owners for free or a discount even…

  23. awsome skin

  24. In my opinion, the skin is not worth it by any mean. First, is just the a lite version of a creative and detailed skin that is Drift (which literally cost 950 VBucks) but this one, is far more expensive.
    Second, is an insult to the people who has this skin. Why on earth this is not an alternative style? Is exactly the same character than the one of the battle pass but without a shirt!! Common Epic! Don’t do that! Fishstick has awesome styles for free, as well another few skins. Why sell this one for 1,500 VBucks?
    Is my opinion, but people will buy it and that is the reason that Epic will realize that is a good strategic to sell the same battle pass characters (because is not just a skin, is a character) in expensive prices and certainly will do it in a future:
    Fire Ragnarok, White Omega, Light (Black) Knight etc etc. If they do it with Drift, why don’t do it with other battlepass characters?
    Don’t buy it, lets proof to Epic that they are wrong if they start to do this.
    **I start playing in Season 7, I don’t have Drift**

    1. I’ve been on fortnite since the start but was never able to get the battle bass till season 8 which is sad because there were so many cool skins I could get like drift and my sister wouldn’t let me get summer drift with my own VBucks. 😞

    2. It’s actually not the exact same skin. Original base skin was actually Mansu (according to skin tracker anyway, but most certainly Asian, in any event) whereas the summer skin is a white boy. Not sure why it was a changed, but it’s all very disappointing in its entirety, imo. They should have just made it not Drift. Like how they added Starfish to the event, female counterpart to Fishstick, it should have just been a new female character w base skin Mari/Evelyn or Headhunter. But whatever.

    3. Sorry i copped the skin because i started playing in season 7 and i really wanted a skin with kitsune things.

    4. This skin is for the one that haven’t bought the battle pass or didn’t play back in season 5 (like me) because some of them want drift.

      1. Well the Drift skin is supposed to be only exclusive to the season 5 battle pass players. As a Season 3 player, This skin should just be a selectable style and if not, it is completely NOT worth it. And Ragnarok needs more color tbh

        1. I think so to because i have drift and i want that styles to

  25. Really want this …
    But since it’s going to cost money, kind of need to know when the date of availability to purchase is…
    Please let us know some of us really want this skin…

    1. Within the next 14 days.

  26. Do people with the original Drift skin get it for free?

    1. Seems doubtful.

  27. It’s stupid that they are not making it a customizable part of drift

    1. Not stupid if they want money

  28. They are only putting it in the shop because they want money lmao same with beach bomber

    1. No shizzle 😂

  29. season 5 battle pass owners may be disappointed…

    1. they are…
