It’s been a long time coming but the Predator skin is finally available in Fortnite… if you can beat the creature first.
Just as expected, a skin for everyone’s favourite extraterrestrial big game hunter is now available to unlock in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5, but it’ll take a bit of work to get.
It’s been obvious for a while that the Predator was coming, especially after Epic Games added a bunch of challenges and minor cosmetics themed around the character, but it’s only now that the skin has become available.
Getting the skin is very straightforward in principle: just beat the Predator that’s now hanging around in Stealthy Stronghold – but that’s easier said than done.
How to unlock the Predator skin in Fortnite
The Predator can usually be found in the jungle-like Stealthy Stronghold and if you kill one they’ll drop a cloaking device which, you guessed it, allows you to turn invisible for a short period of time.
Killing the Predator is as difficult as you’d expect, what with the whole invisibility thing, but while the best bet is to take him on as part of a team he only drops one cloaking device and that’s going to create some friction once he is defeated.
You can’t equip a weapon or go in the water while cloaked though and there’s a 30 second cooldown for using it, so it’s not that overpowered – just a bit overpowered.
How to complete the Jungle Hunter Quest in Fortnite
To get access to the Jungle Hunter Quest you’ll have to buy this season’s Battle Pass, which you can do in the normal manner for 950 V-Bucks (around £6) or joining the Fortnite Crew subscription service for £9.99 a month.
To get the skin you have to complete the Jungle Hunter Quest, which also give you access to the Predator Outfit with built-in Bio-helmet Online Emote, a unique Heat Vision Hunter Spray, banner, and emoticon.
The challenges are fairly simple but they do require you to have beaten the Predator and have your own cloaking device before you start.
Complete the Quest and you can unlock the Predator Outfit with built-in Bio-helmet Online Emote, a unique Heat Vision Hunter Spray, banner, and emoticon.
