Epic Games Hints at Adding Lights for Upgraded Ragnarok Skin in Fortnite

It appears that custom lights for the upgraded Ragnarok skin could be coming soon to Fortnite: Battle Royale.

A telling comment posted by an Epic Games on the Fortnite Reddit page has turned the Ragnarok lights concept into an in-game possibility.

In a feature first added during Season 4, Fortnite gave players who reached a certain overall level the ability to change the color of light for both the Carbide and Omega skins, once they were full upgraded.

While the Drift and Ragnarok skins in Season 5 are also able to be upgraded, there is no custom light feature available, which prompted the artist, Mizurio, to create concept art for it.


While Fortnite concepts are commonly found on Reddit, this one has drawn a lot of extra attention due to the fact that Epic Games Design Lead ‘EpicEricSW’ replied to the post with this comment. 

How would you earn/unlock the different colors?


The reason why Epic cannot just have the lights unlock the same way as before is because the new Season 5 skin upgrades are now offered past the end of the Season, which was not the case for Season 4.

However, Reddit users ‘Grandwhish‘ and ‘ALilParasite‘ replied to Epic’s comment, offering their own suggestions for how the lights could be unlocked.

But how about a set challenge for each specific colour?
Red: 15 eliminations with every gun type, AR, sniper, pistols, shotguns and smgs.
Purple: win 5 matches
Green: Unlock red and purple to see last challenge or something mysterious like that.

Edit: Numbers and such doesn’t need to be what I wrote but same concept.
Edit 2: Added that the 15 eliminations is with every gun type and not with every gun, as that would be rather frustrating.

Blue is standard, red should be like 500 kills. Green 20,000 materials harvested, purple like 30 wins.

Fortnite’s yearly Fortnitemares event has finally arrived, but when does Season 5 arrive?

Fortnite’s new season dropped on August 27,  introducinging tons of changes to the Fortnite World with the likes of new Marvel-themed points-of-interest, superhero characters, and abilities for fans of the battle royale to enjoy. Midas’ Revenge adds even more for fans to sink their teeth into.

Midas’ Revenge has introduced new skins with their yearly event.

When does Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 start?

With only a few days to go of Fortnitemares’ Midas’ Revenge event, Chapter 2 Season 4 has over a month left, with an expected end date of November 30th, as reliable Fortnite leaker HYPEX claims.

The Baba Yaga skin has just been released alongside the Ghostbusters bundle, with more soon to come. The skin is ‘Rare’ and part of the ‘Coven Fresh’ set, costing 1,200 V Bucks.


After the Fortnitemare event, the fifth season of Fortnite’s Chapter 2 should follow immediately, along with some more major changes and a new theme.

Will Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 be available through Apple?

A portion of the mobile player base is currently unable to download Fortnite Season 4, due to the ongoing legal feud between Epic Games and Apple, with Apple blocking all future Fortnite updates on the App store.

While the feud is being resolved, there have been suggestions that Season 4 could potentially be extended for Apple users, although that remains to be seen.

Epic Games has already extended seasons in Fortnite Chapter 2, but there has been no sign from the developers that they have any intention of doing so this time around.

What will Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5’s theme be?

With Fortnite Season 4 being based completely around Marvel characters, there have been rumors that a DC-themed season could come next.

The Fortnite devs have already introduced members of the DC Comics universe as seen with Aquaman and Black Manta in Season 3’s recent Splash Down events. They may go a step further at the next opportunity, adding more familiar faces.

Epic also revealed plans for a Joker bundle that is expected to be released towards the end of Season 4, which could be used to build hype for the upcoming season.

With a new Batman movie also in the works, it would not be too surprising to see another partnership between DC and Epic but as for now, fans will have to wait until Season 5 draws nearer.
