Based on an early leak, the skins will look about how you'd expect them to. Ghost Rider himself has a spiky jacket, spiky belt, spiky boots, and spiky shoulder pads, and there are also spikes all over his Ghost Glider. His pickaxe and back bling are also suffienctly firey and dangerous.

The tournament takes place on November 4. Players need to form a three-person squad in order to participate. The top players in each region will earn their own Ghost Rider skin and back bling. The cosmetics will be purchasable for $20 USD in the item shop, just like the Daredevil skin, sometime after the event. You can see the full rules for the tournament on Epic's official site. Here's where you need to place in order to earn the reward:

  • Europe - Top 800
  • NA East - Top 500
  • NA West - Top 200
  • Brazil - Top 200
  • Asia - Top 100
  • Oceania - Top 100
  • Middle East - Top 100

Marvel Knockout is a limited-time mode that pits teams against each other with special Marvel items. Every player is given select abilities from a pool of heroes like Dr. Doom, Iron Man, She-Hulk, Storm, Black Panther, Wolverine, Groot, and others. This announcement means Marvel Knockout will also return to regular playlists. It's great for earning experience quickly.

This is the second of four special Marvel Knockout tournaments. The first awarded select players with a Daredevil skin, back bling, harvesting tool, and glider. Two more are scheduled for November 11 and 18. A special finale tournament with a cash prize will take place on November 22.
