Footballing star Neymar has now arrived in Fortnite, becoming the first sportsperson to be represented in Epic Games’ iconic battle-royale game.
Gamers around the world can pick up a collection of special Neymar skins by completing a series of challenges themed around the player — if you want to dress up as Neymar in Fortnite, you’ll need to jump through a few hoops!
Read on for some crucial details on the Neymar challenges in Fortnite, particularly the ones you need if you want to nab the Neymar skin yourself.
How to unlock the Neymar skin in Fortnite
The Neymar skins in Fortnite are only available through the Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6 Battle Pass, which players can buy in the game for 950 V-bucks.
If you’re already a Battle Pass customer, this new Neymar content is basically free to you! But if you haven’t yet invested in a Battle Pass, perhaps now is the time.
Once you’ve got the Battle Pass, you’ll want to complete the Neymar-specific challenges that it sets for you.
The key task is this one: “Complete five quests from island soccer players: Become a true ace. Unlocks the Neymar Jr Outfit.”
Once you’ve completed five quests from footie-loving NPCs in the game, you should be rewarded with the Neymar Jr Outfit — the skin you’ve been looking for!
