  1. I got the Matte Black version of Marcus Fenix, not Master Chief. Sad. I really wanted the Matte Black Master Chief.

  2. I did everything I needed to do but I still didn’t get the black style, I was playing on cloud gaming and finished a match in top 25.

    1. If you use your PC, the Xbox Cloud lets you play Fortnite in your web browser. Once you login and launch Fortnite, you will recieve your free skin after a few moments. I did not get the Matte Black Master Chief. I got the Matte Black Marcus Fenix instead. Bummer. But, still cool to have another way to play.

    2. It works for Xbox Cloud Gaming specifically. Did you play it on any other service?
