All that glitters is yours.
— In-Game Description

Midas is a Legendary Outfit in Fortnite: Battle Royale that could be obtained at Level 100 of Chapter 2: Season 2 Battle Pass. He was a Spy Boss at The Agency and had his own Mythic Drum Gun. The skin is based on a Greek myth about a man that makes anything he touches turn to gold. He was also the leader of E.G.O. and supposedly a team of agents going undercover for E.G.O. and A.L.T.E.R.

After The Device event, it was revealed that Midas was possibly working undercover for A.L.T.E.R as he changed his appearance after the Event. This might not actually be of relevance, though.


In 2020 Fortnitmares, Midas is seen as a Shadow beast roaming the "Ruins". He is also announced as a cyborg in the "Last Laugh Bundle" released on November 17, 2020.
