Cheap Fortnite Halloween costumes for kids and adults 2018 – including Brite Bomber, Black Knight and Skull Trooper

Fancy dress outfits inspired by Fortnite's famous character skins are now on sale but prices vary wildly

IT'S the smash hit battle royale video game that both children and adults love - so it comes as no surprise that Fortnite will be one of the biggest inspirations for Halloween costumes this year.

However, costumes vary wildly in price for both kids and grown-ups - so The Sun has put together a guide on some of the cheapest Fortnite fancy dress outfits available online.

Fortnite: Battle Royale is the wildly popular free online game where 100 people play against each other in a last-man-standing style of fight.

It's reported to have earned $1billion (£760million) for its creator Epic Games since its launch late last year from in-game purchases that players buy, such as different outfits - known as "skins" - for a character.

Popular outfits range from classic skins such as Raven and the Black Knight to seasonal favourites such as the exclusive Halloween-themed Skull Trooper and the Valentine's Day limited edition Cuddle Team Leader outfit.

These outfits don't offer any gameplay advantage but players snap them up anyway to make their player - called a "hero" - more distinctive from the 99 other players fighting to the virtual death online.

How to complete your Fortnite look with masks and accessories

IT'S not just full costumes that are available - you can also complete any outfit with masks and other Fortnite accesssories.

Amazon and eBay are selling dozens of different masks that can complete a full costume from £10.95.

If you don't want to splash out on a full costume, buying just the mask could be a cheaper way to dress up as a character from your favourite game

The masks could be the cheapest option if you didn't want to fork out for a whole costume, or have to buy a few of them.

There are a range of styles available online, including Fortnite Fox, which can be bought for under £4.

Some of the Fortnite outfits have not been available for a few months but the recent launch of season six could see many of the most popular and exclusive skins return.

Now Fortnite fans are bringing the game to life by dressing up as their favourite characters from the online game.

Outfits vary wildly in price and can cost as much as £130.

We've put together a list of the costumes tipped to be the most popular for kids and adults this year at the best prices we could find.

Ebay seems to have the cheapest deals, followed by Amazon, while dedicated costume shops tend to have pricier options.

Be on your guard when it comes to shopping for costumes on eBay though, as some costumes may be counterfeit.

This can mean that they don't comply with quality or safety regulations, so they could fall apart easily or be a fire risk.

Here's our guide to the cheapest costumes available.
