Marvel has well and truly taken over Fortnite in Season 4 and with iconic characters all over the map, there’s one key way you can stand out. Foil skin variants are in the game but extremely hard to come by, here’s what you need to know.

From Thor to Wolverine and plenty more, a number of Marvel’s most popular characters are making their presence felt in Fortnite. The Season 4 update introduced a ton of fresh content around these additions with plenty more coming as the season rolls on.

Eight unique skins can be claimed throughout the Season 4 Nexus War Battle Pass. However, if you’re looking for some additional flair, you’ll need to put in some work. Epic Games has introduced new variants for each of the new Marvel skins, but you won’t be seeing them in-game anytime soon.

Players will need to be extremely dedicated if they want to unlock all of the Silver, Gold, and Holo variants for their favorite skins. Here’s everything you need to know in order to map out your goals for the season.

Eight iconic Marvel heroes and villains have taken over Fortnite in Season 4.

The Season 4 Battle Pass comes boasting the standard 100 tiers to unlock. Players can earn experience to push through each tier, or they can pay to skip all 100 and rush through it immediately. While it might seem as though the rewards stop here, there’s actually more to do once you’ve ‘maxed out’ for the season.

You may remember the extraordinarily rare Golden Peely skin variant from Season 2. Epic is continuing that trend with three high-tier variants available for each Marvel character. Some can be unlocked quite easily, while others might take you until the final day of the season to earn.

The first unique variant is a Silver skin for Thor which can be unlocked at level 105. On the opposite end, the highest rarity item is Holographic foil for Wolverine. This can only be unlocked by reaching level 220, more than double the experience required to fill out the Battle Pass.

It’ll likely be a few weeks before you start seeing these skin variants in the wild. Wolverine’s highest tier might take well over a month for even the most dedicated players to reach. Here’s a breakdown of every Marvel skin variant in Fortnite Season 4.

Here’s how you can get through the first batch of challenges to be well on your way. Keep your eyes peeled for secret objectives as the season rolls on as well, as XP gains are often hidden away around the map.

What is the Chipotle Challenger Series?

The Chipotle Challenger Series first launched last year at DreamHack in Dallas, TX and is now virtual for 2020 with an online tournament that gives every fan across the U.S. and Canada the opportunity to join the competition and prove their skills in some of the world’s most popular games.

A live-broadcasted Finale is held, featuring the top-performing teams from the Qualifiers up against the streamers and celebrities.

These teams have the opportunity to go head-to-head against fan-favorites in esports as well as Chipotle-fan gamers in sports, music, and entertainment.

Some of the big names that took part in the first tournament of the 2020 Chipotle Challenger Series included award-winning DJ Steve Aoki, actors Finn Wolfhard, Jerry Ferrara, Colton Underwood, and Cameron Fuller, esports players Tommey, Rallied, Shane ‘ShAnE’ McKerral, and Crowder, streamers ItzWarsz, Symfuhny, Di3seL, TSM Diego, and HusKerrs, YouTuber FaZe Swagg, baseball players Joc Pederson, Cody Bellinger, and Joey Gallo, DJ-Gamer CRAY, USA Hockey’s Hilary Knight, elite basketball prospects James Wiseman, R.J. Hampton, and Tre Jones, U.S. Soccer’s Allie Long, and athlete Demi Bagby.

Chipotle and esports

This is far from Chipotle’s first foray into the world of esports. In 2017 the company made headlines as one of OpTic Gaming’s main sponsors and the Chipotle logo was on proud display when the organization’s Call of Duty roster took home the trophy at the 2017 Call of Duty World League Championship.

The Challenger Series first kicked off at DreamHack Dallas, where players duked it out on PUBG, before moving to Fortnite for the second event at DreamHack Atlanta.

In 2018 Chipotle became a title sponsor of Team SoloMid’s competitive Fortnite roster, specifically the TSM Fortnite house in California. This has led to various collaborations, including one of the world’s most recognized streamers, Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani, creating his own burrito inside a Chipotle store.
