Carnage, the latest Fortnite “Tier 100” skin (with the new battle star system, the tier system doesn’t really apply anymore) Venom Let There Be Carnage is one of the most popular skins on the battle pass. It is also a huge part of this season’s storyline, much like Ric Sanchez filled that role for Chapter 2 Season 7.
A Venom Symbiote and a Carnage Symbiote are Mythic weapons that will be in the game and are unlike anything the game has seen before. Mythic weapons are often different from standard weapons, but these are even further different than the usual Mythic weapons in the game.
The Mythic Symbiotes, both Venom and Carnage, are spawning in the game now. Players are finding them in canisters around the map. They are currently not in chests or floor loot, but it shouldn’t be difficult for players to notice if a symbiote is near them.
Once the first storm circle forms, both Venom and Carnage will drop on the map, and their canisters will be marked for every player. They will both drop inside the circle, so players there will likely be making a mad dash to secure the symbiotes.
Given that there is usually only one Fortnite Mythic weapon per game, the fact that both symbiotes will land on the island at the same time is exciting. Players will have the opportunity to get one or both of the symbiotes, though if it’s a solo match only one can be used at a time.
While Carnage himself hasn’t landed on Fortnite Island yet, it seems very unlikely that he won’t eventually land and start wreaking havoc on the island. Given his status as the top battle pass skin and his role in the cinematic trailer, Carnage is going to play a very big role this season. It’s a matter of when, not if.
The beginning of October seems like the most likely date for Carnage’s arrival. The Venom movie sequel Venom: Let There Be Carnage featuring the red symbiote will hit theaters on October 1.
This comes after the initial release date was later in October, then it was pushed back to 2022 and eventually moved back up to October 1, where it will likely stay.
