Epic Games have finally revealed the Fortnite Season 3 Battle Pass, skins, cosmetics, and included in those is the one and only Aquaman. If you would like to get the DC Comics character in-game, you’ve come to the right place. 

With water proving to be one of the biggest factors this season, just like gold was in the last, the half-Atlantean Arthur has arrived in the world of battle royale.

Now, it’s unclear as to whether or not his ability to communicate with marine creatures,  like the sharks in the water, will be included in Fortnite just yet, but one thing we know for sure is that he, and his trident, have been added to the game.

Closer look at Aquaman in Fortnite

This news comes just days after Epic’s very own Donald Mustard posted a link on his Twitter account showing a Season 3 teaser, where just the trident could be seen. Jason Mamoa, the lead actor of the Aquaman movie, also gave the game a nod before Season 3 went live.

Even if this announcement had been teased previously, the skin caught many members of the game’s community off guard. For those who haven’t seen the skin just yet, below you can catch a first look at the DC hero’s costume in the official Season 3 trailer.

Of course, it’s just as important to know what the skin is going to look like in-game tool. Here’s what Arthur Curry is going to look like in Season 3.

Unlike the rare Deadpool cosmetic in Season 2, which took a while to release and required you to jump through hoops in more than a dozen challenges, the Aquaman skin is a little easier to get your hands on.

  1. Load up Fortnite Season 3 and purchase the new Battle Pass.
  2. From there, rank up the Battle Pass.
  3. Complete five different Aquaman challenges in the skin’s main mission.
  4. Once that’s all done, you will unlock the Undisputed King of the Seas skin in-game.

The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) is back for Chapter 2 Season 4, with a return to the beloved Trios format that fans have been clamoring to see make a return. With the action kicking off on October 9, here’s everything you need to know to make sure you catch all of the action.

FNCS is making its return to trios in Season 4 for the first time since the inaugural Season X event. While it’s been a pretty poorly kept secret, there are some changes to the format from when it last appeared in August 2019.

With qualifiers now completed, we’re heading into the main stage of the FNCS Season 4 event, with a full month of competitive Fortnite on the way featuring some of the biggest names in the game competing for their cut of the prize money.

FNCS Season 4 format

FNCS Season 4 returns to the Trios format that has been used in the past, and is arguably the most popular competitive format in the tournament’s history, with past events filled with massive plays and huge battles that make for the ultimate Fortnite viewing experience.

As always, FNCS runs on a points-based scoring system, with your final placement in matches contributing to your overall score at the end of the weekend. Those who manage to win a game will receive 25 points as their reward, with the values decreasing incrementally down to 17th place, with anyone finishing below that scoring nothing. There are points for finding eliminations though, so players will be on the lookout for enemies to wipe out and add to their tally.

FNCS scoring system

  • Victory Royale: 25 Points
  • 2nd: 20 Points
  • 3rd: 16 Points
  • 4th: 14 Points
  • 5th: 13 Points
  • 6th: 12 Points
  • 7th: 11 Points
  • 8th: 10 Points
  • 9th: 9 Points
  • 10th: 8 Points

FNCS will be running in all the same regions it has been for the last few seasons: NA-West, NA-East, South American, EU, Middle East, Asia, and OCE, with the competition running on PC and consoles.
