Free Naruto emoticons and Kurama Glider in Fortnite

A new set of Fortnite quests known as The Nindo Challenges have arrived as part of the game’s major Naruto collaboration, and players can earn free rewards for completing them.

Fortnite’s first-ever anime crossover has arrived, bringing skins and cosmetics based on the iconic ninja Naruto and his teammates, a new Kunai weapon, and a Kakashi NPC giving out themed quests on the map.

While those skins might cost quite a lot, Epic Games have now introduced a way to earn some Naruto cosmetics entirely for free, including the Kurama Glider which would normally set you back 1,200 V-Bucks.

Below, you’ll find all the information you need to unlock some exclusive Naruto emoticons as well as details on how to complete the Daily Milestone and get the Kurama Glider for free.

How to complete Naruto’s Nindo Challenges in Fortnite

In order to take part in the Nindo Challenges, you’ll first need to visit the official Fortnite website and sign in with one of your accounts. This allows Epic to track your points in the game and deliver your rewards.

The Nindo Challenges will take place over five days, beginning on Wednesday, November 17, at 12am ET and ending on Sunday, November 21, at 11:59pm ET, with a new reward available each day.

Once you’ve signed up, you’ll be able to earn the following free Naruto rewards:

As well as the Naruto skins, a Kurama Glider based on the powerful nine-tailed beast from the anime is available in the Item Shop – but you can also earn it for free by completing a special Nindo Challenge.

In order to unlock the Kurama Glider, you’ll need to achieve the Daily Milestone, which, according to the Fortnite website, means you need to earn 35 points (that’s a huge 35 eliminations) in one day.

This might take a while, but fortunately, you can track your progress here. You’ll also get a Shinobi Teamwork Loading Screen as a reward for completing this Daily Milestone.
