What does the Fortnite Season 8 umbrella look like?

Every season since Fortnite has been released, Epic has added a new umbrella that players will look to unlock over the course of the season. Players often prefer these umbrellas as opposed to standard gliders, simply due to their style and how your character glides into the map.

This season is the same, as the new glider has been uncovered by players, and if you’re wondering what this looks like, it can be viewed down below.

How to unlock Fortnite Season 8’s umbrella

If you’re eager to obtain this glider within Fortnite Season 8, there’s only one pre-requisite that you’ll need to complete in order to snag one. Like any other season, this comes in the form of grabbing a victory royale within one of the main modes in Fortnite.

While this may seem tricky for some of you, keep in mind, there’s skill-based matchmaking within the game. Meaning, if you’re struggling to outlast other players, you’ll be placed in lobbies with players who are around the same skill level as you.

Another word of advice is that you have the entire season to complete this task. So, don’t stress too much if you don’t complete this on day one, as there’s going to be an ample amount of players gunning for this elusive glider!
