Each Fortnite season comes with a special Tier 100 skin, a reward for reaching the highest battle pass level available. Season 11 brings us the Fusion skin, and here’s how to complete the exclusive Unfused challenges that come with it.

Fortnite Chapter 2 brought players a brand new map, with a selection of unique skins and challenges to go with it.

In the first season of Chapter 2, the Fusion skin is the big one: unlocked at tier 100, the Fusion skin and, more importantly, the Unfused challenges, offer players some new, unique cosmetics to grind for.

Completing the Unfused challenges

Epic GamesThe Fusion skin comes in the XEV and VEX styles.

The Unfused challenges are unlocked at tier 100 and there are eight of them in total; four for the ‘XEV’ skin style, while the other four are for the ‘VEX’ style.

These challenges don’t appear to be particularly difficult and are likely stuff you’ll be able to do in the space of a few games – as long as you’re playing you’ll likely complete them anyway.

The challenges are as follows:

XEV: Finish top 5 in Duos or Squads (3)

XEV: Carry a teammate out of the Storm (1)

XEV: Revive and Reboot a teammate (1)

XEV: Assist a teammate with eliminations in different matches (10)

VEX: Destroy opposing player buildings (25)

VEX: Finish top 10 in Solos (3)

VEX: Yeet an opponent and deal fall damage (1)

VEX: Eliminate an opponent in different matches (10)

Epic Games/Reddit: BoyfromHel1The Unfused Challenges are available for anyone who has reached tier 100.

Tier 100 skins typically have a variation in styles available for players to earn, and Chapter 2 is clearly no different as evidenced here.

There is still time to grind out your tiers to get to 100 and work on the Unfused challenges, as the first season of Chapter 2 has been confirmed to be extended to end in early February.

This will come after the rumored Risky Reels in-game event, which is expected to appear on New Year’s Day.

There is currently no clue as to what the next tier 100 skin could possibly be when Epic Games introduce Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 2.

In the past, Tier 100 skins have included the likes of The Reaper (commonly known as John Wick) and Black Knight skins, from seasons three and one respectively. Can they recreate something as iconic as these?


Fortnite leak hints at Tomb Raider crossover with Lara Croft skin

Fortnite players are convinced that the game’s next major crossover skin will be Lara Croft from the Tomb Raider franchise.

When Season 5 of Epic Games’ popular battle royale launched in December 2020, it came with the theme of ‘bounty hunters’ as Agent Jonesy attempted to “gather the greatest hunters across all realities” to protect The Loop.

So far, we’ve seen hunters including God of War’s Kratos, Halo’s Master Chief, The Walking Dead’s Daryl and Michonne, and of course The Mandalorian make appearances in the game as playable skins.

Who’s next? Well, fans have been gathering clues – alongside a recent leak – and they think they’ve discovered that the next newcomer to The Island will be none other than Tomb Raider legend Lara Croft.

Is Lara Croft going to be in Fortnite?

According to Fortnite dataminer Mang0e, a new crossover skin codenamed ‘Typhoon’ will be arriving in the game soon. It will be a female character with reactive styles, and the portal on the map indicting her arrival has a ‘flicker’ effect.

While codenames like this one don’t always have a link to the final skin, some fans believe that ‘Typhoon’ is a reference to the opening of 2013 reboot Tomb Raider, where Lara gets stranded on an island after a violent storm sinks her ship.

As for being reactive, there could be a number of possibilities. One could be that as the player receives damage, the skin appears more bloody and bandaged up, which would reflect Lara’s modern appearance in the recent trilogy of games.

Lara Croft would fit the ‘hunter’ theme of Fortnite Season 5.

A recent tweet from the official Tomb Raider account has added even more fuel to the fire. Using symbols, the tweet depicts Lara thinking about three emojis. One of them is a pickaxe, which is a piece of Fortnite iconography.

Of course, Lara uses a pickaxe in her own game, but that hasn’t stopped fans from speculating. Lara would also fit the ‘hunter’ aspect of the season, as she uses her bow and arrow to hunt prey in the games.

The rumors have even got some dedicated fans creating their own artwork. Twitter user @wawa_cwoft mocked up what Lara Croft could look like as a Fortnite character, and it’s got us fully on board with the concept (as if we weren’t already).

But what if it’s not Lara Croft? Well, there’s been heavy speculation about Metroid’s intergalactic bounty hunter Samus Aran joining Fortnite as a crossover skin.

With Kratos representing PlayStation and Master Chief representing Xbox, Nintendo are the only company behind the ‘big three’ consoles who haven’t got a skin representing them yet. Samus could be perfect for the job.

Whoever the new crossover skin turns out to be, fans will be able to get their hands on them soon enough as Season 5 of Fortnite is scheduled to come to an end on March 16, 2021.
