Officially, the Predator has landed in Fortnite. Decloaking near his pod, the Battle Pass holders are expected to hunt down the elusive alien to nab his skin. Of course, this is easier said than done. In fact, he is not a pushover like the Mandalorian. Well, let us complete these challenges to unlock the Predator Skin in Fortnite.
How to Unlock the Predator Skin in Fortnite?
In order to unlock the Predator skin in Fortnite, you will need to complete a set of challenges. These challenges are as below:
- You have to discover the Predator’s mysterious Pod.
- You have to talk to 3 NPCs: Beef Boss, Dummy and Remedy.
- You have to collect 3 Health Packs.
- You have to defeat the Predator in Fortnite.
Discover the Predator’s Mysterious Pod
You will want to know where you are able to find the Predator’s mysterious Pod. You have to know that the Predator’s mysterious Pod can be found in the top left corner of Stealthy Stronghold. For your information, Stealthy Stronghold is a big walled-off biome, with a Jungle inside of it. It is spread over the northwest coast of the island. The place is a Aztec jungle palace with old ruins and some plants growing around wildly covering the ruins. There are the cages around the area.
Talk to Beef Boss, Remedy, and Dummy
Where to talk to Beef Boss, Dummy and Remedy? All of these NPCs: Beef Boss, Dummy and Remedy are going to spawn in areas between Craggy Cliffs and Stealthy Stronghold. You will be able to find Beef Boss by making your way to the Durrr Burger food truck or the Durr Burger restaurant. To interact with the NPC Beef Boss, you have to land on the hill which is to the east of Stealthy Stronghold POI.
Dummy and Remedy are not too far away. They are positioned just North of the food truck in a home and around Pleasant Park. You only need to travel a few feet towards the stronghold walls to reach Dummy. You are going to find him standing by a huge rock. Apart from this location, you are also able to find Dummy at Compact Cars, towards the west of Dirty Docks.
To discover Remedy in Fortnite, you have to head over to the lone house location. The place is located towards the northeast of Pleasant Park. Like Dummy, you are also able to find Remedy at another location on the map. For his secondary location, you have to make your way to Craggy Cliffs and find out near the southern corner of the location.
Collect 3 Health Packs
Other challenges to unlock the Predator skin in Fortnite is to collect 3 Health Packs. For your information, Health packs will be able to be discovered all around the map. To make matters easier, simply you are able to pick up (and drop) the first one you discover three times to complete this challenge.
Defeat the Predator in Fortnite
Before you defeat the Predator in Fortnite, of course you need to find it first. Remember that by completing the Predator challenges, you are going to unlock sprays, emotes, and more. The real reward involves hunting the Predator himself. Fortunately, he is not difficult to find. All you can do is go to Stealthy Stronghold and look around. You must be able to discover him walking about the northern or central areas shortly after entering the zone.
So, how to defeat the Predator? Apparently, this will not be an easy fight. Firstly, you have to contend with other players. We suggest you drop in with a friend or two, the last thing you want it to go down before getting an opportunity to fight the Predator in Fortnite. Another reason why this is not an easy fight is that the Predator will be able to turn invisible. Please try to fight a group of players and a cloaked hunter, just forget about it as soon as the Predator sees you, he will charge. Shotgun blasts to the face are highly recommended. After taking some damage, he will leap away and cloak. You do not let up. If he gets in close, he will be able to attack with his wrist blades (which are so deadly). Also, you have to ensure to keep a lookout for sneaky players. The Squad play is the best, as long as one of your teammates takes him down, you will be able to unlock the Predator skin.
The Predator’s Cloaking Device
Like the Mandalorian, the Predator also comes bringing prizes. After his death, he will drop a cloaking device which allows you to turn invisible temporarily. However, it is not overpowered as entering a pool of water, switching to a weapon, and taking damage can cause you to decloak. Also, there is a 30-second cooldown between the uses. It is a good trick that can get you out of a losing fight (or the drop on an unsuspecting enemy) but it will not give you an easy win.
Completing the Final Predator Challenges
Unlocking the Predator skin is only the first step. There are also other goodies worth nabbing including the remaining pieces to the Predator’s Jungle Hunter set. Those challenges are rather straightforward. One of them needs completing a bounty as the Predator for example. Or being cloaked for 30 seconds within 10 meters of a rival player (As the Predator).
The remaining Predator challenges and prizes are:
- Collect legendary weapons or rarer (The Hunt loading screen).
- Defeat Predator (The Predator outfit).
- Complete a Bounty as Predator (The Hunter’s Trophy back bling).
- Visit Predator’s apartment in Hunter’s Haven as Predator (The Bio Helmet removal).
- Spend 30seconds within 10m of a player as Predator (The Yautja Wristblades).
- Deal damage while thermal is active as the Predator (The Hunter’s Arsenal weapon wrap).
Completing the last remaining challenges will be able to unlock the Predator’s complete Jungle Hunter Set. At this time, all we need is an Arnold NPC to hunt.
