The secret character skin for Season 5 of Fortnite is Arnie-hating alien hunter the Predator, and some cosmetics are already live.
As soon as Epic Games announced that Fortnite Season 5’s celebrity cameos would all be famous hunters everyone immediately guessed that the Predator would be involved. It’s taken a while but now it’s finally here… almost.
It was obvious the Predator was coming as soon as players noticed props from the first film in the game, including a crashed helicopter and a truck being used as a generator.
The Predator skin is still not in the game yet though, as instead the v15.20 update has added a set of Predator challenges which unlock more minor in-game items.
How to get the Predator skin in Fortnite
Most of the Predator challenges aren’t available yet and are just represented as question marks in the Mystery Rewards section of the menu.
There are three challenges available now and six more that will unlock on January 20, which is when you’ll be able to start completing them and finally get the skin.
The initial challenges are pretty simple ones, which is what you’d expect given the minor rewards, but here’s how to complete them:
Find mysterious pod
This is in the northwest corner of Stealthy Stronghold and seems to be a Predator escape pod. Locate it and you’ll get a Predator banner icon.
Talk with Beef Boss, Remedy, and Dummy
Not exactly the most cryptic Fortnite challenge there’s ever been. Beef Boss is at the Durr Burger restaurant to the west of Weeping Woods, Remedy is at a house northeast of Pleasant Park, and Dummy is nearby – just north of Pleasant Park. Talk to them all and you’ll get the Plasma Caster reticule.
All you need to do here is collect three medkits. It doesn’t have to be in the same game though, so this is super easy. Get them all and you’ll unlock the Heat Vision Hunter spray.
The v15.20 update hasn’t added much else of note but there are two new exotic guns (Lever Action Shotgun and Hop Rock Dualies) and the able to interact with non-player characters in Team Rumble.
TheGrefg skin, that led to the Spanish streamer smashing the record for Twitch viewership, isn’t available in the game yet though, but is expected next week.
Have Fun ^_^
