Fortnite Ruin Skin Challenges and Rewards revealed for Season 8 new Discovery Skin (Pic: EPIC GAMES)
Fortnite Season 8 is coming to an end in the next few weeks, but before Season 9 drops we're getting to that point where players turn their attention to the special skin released to fans as a reward for completing a substantial portion of the challenges released preiously.
In the case of Season 8, they're labelled as 'Discovery challenges' and upon completion of 55 weekly challenges, the new skin will be unlocked.
Last season, the skin was kept largely under wraps, but Epic Games has already shown their hand last week when they revealed the 'Ruin' skin. A sort of mash-up between the volcanic looking prisoner skin of Season 7 and Sauron from Lord of the Rings.
Regardless of how he looks, tomorrow, when the new Season 8 Week 8 Challenges drop, players will finally have the chance to unlock this special limited time skin.
That's because the seven challenges set to drop tomorrow will bring our total up to the magic number of 55.
However, this is simply stage 1 of a much bigger series of steps you need to take.
Once you've completed 55 challenges, you'll unlock the new Ruin Skin Challenges. Further details of which were leaked earlier today with the release of the new 8.40 Update.
Ruin Skin Challenges.
The Ruin skin challenges were leaked earlier today by Data-miner @FireMonkeyFN and include the following tasks:
- Destroy trees (50)
- Destroy rocks (35)
- Destroy cars, trucks, or RVs (20)
- Deal damage to opponent structures (10000)
- Outlast Opponents (1000)
- Complete Daily Challenges (5)
From what the datamine of the leaked files suggests, players will earn the legendary Dying Light back bling upon completion of three of the above challenges.
Complete all six and you'll then receive the Dread pickaxe. You can see both the cosmetics below.
At this stage it's unclear if the skin will have any additional styles to unlock as we saw with the Prisoner Skin in Season 7.
However, we imagine that if there are any we'll learn about them soon enough as we approach Season 9.
Speaking of which, another pretty big leak concerning Season 9 has come toRead More – Source[contf] [contfnew]
