Epic Games included a very popular footballer in their Fortnite Season 6 update as PSG superstar Neymar Jr. was given an exclusive skin, but players may be wondering how you get it. Now, there’s a new clue included in the Fortnite v16.10 update.
A number of new skins and cosmetics were included in the v16.00 update back on March 16, including new styles for Jonesy. Not only that, but the latest content refresh added a load of Guardians that now protect different locations on the island – some of which hold rare loot.
One of the most exciting pieces of news around the game, though, has been the confirmation that Brazil football icon Neymar Jr. is coming soon. The player was confirmed to be included in the latest major patch days before it dropped, but how can you unlock his skin in-game?
Let’s take a look – because this one is very much a developing story.
How to get Neymar skin in Fortnite
Just like Predator was last season, Neymar is expected to be a secret skin bundled into the Fortnite Season 6 Battle Pass.
This means that there will be a number of challenges to complete in order to get ahold of the skilful winger in the world of battle royale. Below, we’ve laid out some basic instructions for when these challenges ultimately go live.
- Load up Fortnite Battle Royale.
- Enter the Battle Pass screen.
- Scroll for the Neymar Jr. challenges when they have been added.
- Complete those one-by-one throughout the season.
- Pick up the exclusive Fortnite Neymar skin when they are done.
Fortnite Neymar skin release time
According to leaker ShiinaBR, there’s a set release time for Neymar’s skin in-game.
It will release mid-season as part of the Battle Bus, on April 28, 2021.
Neymar Jr. will be available in 43 days, according to the Battle Pass section!

Neymar Fortnite teasers
The original Season 6 teaser images showed off his jersey number, before it was confirmed that the Brazilian footballing superstar would soon arrive in Fortnite.

On top of that, on March 30 things were made even more interesting by Epic Games. We have been handed one more clue that he could be coming soon, as the v16.10 update added a load of footballer NPCs across the island that may welcome him on arrival.
One of them, named Webster, is based on a duck and very much looks like the eye from the original teaser image. Some will be wearing soccer shirts, too.
