Fortnite has been talking about the arrival of a Predator skin during season 5, so we are investigating all the leaks and rumors about when the character will arrive on The Island.
Fortnite’s fifth season has introduced a number of exciting crossovers to fit its “bounty hunter” theme, including the Mandalorian, Kratos the God of War, and the Halo Master Chief. So what is new? Well, all the signs point to Predator.
The terrifying character first appeared in Arnold Schwarzenegger’s hit 1987 film Predator and later spawned a massive sequel and spinoff franchise. He is easily one of the most recognizable characters in movie history.
It seems inevitable that Predator will land in Fortnite before the fifth season ends, and fans are very excited about its arrival. Here’s everything we know about the future of the skin so far.
When is Predator coming to Fortnite?
We don’t have an exact date for when the Predator skin will be released in-game yet, but it’s definitely coming very soon. Many clues have already been given during the fifth season, including the alien warrior logo that appears on a door.
The recent Fortnite v15.20 update introduced the Predator ship to the jungle point of interest Stealthy Stronghold, suggesting that the hunter has already landed on The Island and is waiting to make his grand entrance.
Season 5 of Fortnite is scheduled to end on March 16, 2021, so the Predator will definitely arrive before then. It is likely to arrive in late January or early February.
How to unlock the secret skin
Following the v15.20 update, players who have purchased the Season 5 Battle Pass will be able to see a new Mystery Rewards section, which will likely unlock the Predator skin.
There are currently three Predator-related rewards on screen – a flag icon, an icon, and a graffiti – and they will be unlocked as players complete a new series of Jungle Hunters missions.
Six more mystery rewards in the combination are currently unidentified. We hope they will be completed by the Predator cosmetic set, which will likely include a glider, umbrella, and pickaxe at the very least.
Interestingly, several Fortnite leakers have claimed that the skin will arrive in two variations: Masked and Unmasked. If this is true, the skin will undoubtedly become a player’s favorite.
