Fortnite Battle Royale is known for its warm relationship with the community. Sometimes this leads to some unusual, not so serious additions to the game. We have seen many skins that are inspired by a meme. Moth skin is possibly one of them. To understand how this skin came out on Fortnite, we need to know about the meme first. On July 14th, 2018 Reddit user No_Reason27 posted a picture of a moth in close up in his window. According to Know Your Meme, image spread amongst various other subreddits and jokes about how moths are attracted to lamps.
The image above was posted to /r/SurrealMemes and it gained a quick reputation and managed to start the moth meme as other people have done many similar titled memes. After a short time moth memes were all over the internet and people loved seeing moths. Epic decided to make a moth skin to show Fortnite players that they also do care about what’s popular or not in the meme scene. This new skin named Mothmando was the main part of Moth Commando Gear that includes the Lamp Harvesting Tool and Flutterbug Glider. The moth skin cost players 1500 V-Bucks while the glider running at 800 V-Bucks and harvesting tool costing 500 V-Bucks for players to add to their cosmetic item collections for the battle royale game.
Even Epic Games sort of done a moth meme as you can see from the picture above. We highly recommend you to purchase this skin whenever it is available as it’s really valuable in terms of popularity.
