Fortnite fans can finally get their hands on the brand-new Oro skin, and can earn a special harvesting tool and wrap for completing four new challenges included for those who purchase it from the in-game item shop.
Players have been eagerly anticipating the release of the Legendary tier skin Oro since it was first added to the game during Fortnite Chapter 2: Season 1. Many waited for weeks to see the skin finally released, but the conclusion of the season came and went with no sign of the golden skeleton — leaving many fans of the battle royale franchise scratching their head and wondering if we would ever see it.
Finally, Epic Games have decided that the time is right for the new skin to be released, and have added a brand-new set of challenges for players to sink their teeth into. A special harvesting tool and Wrap is also included as a reward, so you can complete the set and look as royal as the mysterious skeleton king himself.
The Awaken Oro challenge pack contains four total challenges, and the good news for players is that none of them are particularly difficult to complete, meaning you should be able to knock these out fairly quickly should you choose to buy the pack.
You’ll need to play 10 games with a friend – although there is no rule as to what kind of matches these can be – and assist your teammate with 10 eliminations during those matches. The easiest way to complete this portion of the set may be to play Team Rumble, where respawns are enabled, thus creating more enemies that you can take down together.
Dealing 1,000 damage to opponents is also on the agenda. Although, you can use any weapon you choose (and collect 40 in-game medals), which will be easily completed in a handful of matches should you last towards the end of the game. You can view the challenges in full below.
Completing each challenge will offer a reward of 100,000 XP towards your Battle Pass, which will definitely help you unlock new cosmetic items at a rapid pace. On top of that, you’ll also receive the Greed wrap and Gilded Scepter pickaxe.
The Oro skin is available now in the Item Store for 1,500 V-Bucks.
