The secret skin for Fortnite Chapter 2: Season 1, called Sorana, is now available in-game, and players can unlock it and the matching back-bling and pickaxe by completing a set of special challenges.

Most seasons in Fortnite Battle Royale have featured a secret or mystery outfit skin that players could unlock by completing a series of challenges through the season’s first eight or so weeks.

For Season 1 of Chapter 2, that skin is called Sorana and, now that the eighth set of challenges for the season will be going live on November 28, players will finally be able to obtain the cosmetic item.

Although the skin was supposed to stay a secret until Week 8, players were able to leak it beforehand because of a glitch in the game that allowed some to access it a week early.

Here is what the outfit looks like. The furthest forward in the image is the base version and the rear two are different styles that players can unlock after getting the original skin.

How to unlock Sorana skin in Fortnite – Alter Ego challenge

The skin is unlocked by completing the Alter Ego challenge that requires the hidden letters F-O-R-T-N-I-T-E be found on the map, with the final letter, E, now available in this week’s Dive! challenge set.

Those who need help finding the final missing letter, or want to get it out of the way as quickly as possible, can check out our in-depth guide on how to find the hidden ‘E‘ for the Week 8 Missions.

How to unlock Sorana’s pickaxe, back-bling, and other styles

Once the Alter Ego challenge is completed and the Sorana skin unlocked, players will gain access to a special set of challenges through which the matching pickaxe, back-bling, and other styles can be obtained.

Much like the hidden letter objectives, the challenges for these cosmetic items will involve players having to find them in the Chaos Rising Loading Screen while wearing the outfit itself.

The Chaos Rising Loading Screen, which has already been released in Fortnite, includes images of both the Party Crashers Pickaxe and Ready Ruck Back Bling along with coordinates for where both items can be found.

  • Coordinates for Ready Ruck Back Bling: G7/G8 – H7/H8

This puts the pickaxe somewhere in the top right corner of the map, near Steamy Stacks and possibly even in the surrounding water.

The back-bling’s coordinates put it in the bottom right corner of the map, in the snow-capped mountain range that lies there.

Epic GamesThe blue squares indicate the area where the pickaxe can be found and the red squares are where the back bling is located.

As for what these items look like, higher-resolution and more details images of both have also been leaked. Their designs and color schemes very much match the Sorana skin, so they’re all clearly part of the same set.

How to watch Fortnite’s Galactus event: Start time, leaks, location, more

Fortnite’s hotly-anticipated Galactus event, coming soon as the Season 4 finale, is the talk of the town; from when the Marvel character will make his mark, to how you can watch it in-game, here’s everything you need to know.

A bright object in the sky has begun hurtling towards the Fortnite map, and thanks to datamining and logic, it seems only reasonable to suggest that Galactus is on his way to cause destruction.

Similar to the devastation caused by the Season 1 meteor, you would have to think that his intentions are not good. It seems we’re gearing up for a massive battle featuring every Marvel character currently in the game.

The original Fortnite meteor was first spotted a month and a half before it landed – destroying Dusty Depot – and the same type of impact appears to be on the horizon.

Fortnite Galactus event start date and time

Such is the hype surrounding the appearance of Galactus that he’s taken an incredibly long time to appear. However, his arrival is finally set in stone.

The Nexus War finale event is a one-time spectacle set to kick off on Tuesday, December 1 at 4 PM ET | 1 PM PT | 9 PM GMT.

Some leaks of the upcoming event have made their way to the internet which depicts Thor, She-Hulk, Wolverine, and Iron Man offering themselves as soldiers to fight Galactus.

Fighting Galactus to end the Nexus War will be a one-time event. No replays for this historic battle.

Galactus Fortnite event leaks

The event itself could see the superheroes taking on Galactus in the form of a raid. Or you could possibly have Galactus taking on the whole lobby, or a Thanos-inspired mode akin to Chapter 1.

Galactus is officially listed as being 28ft tall and that in itself could offer some interesting gameplay options. Given that this will close out a season-long Nexus War, there’s a good chance you’ll have a ton of manual input here. So expect to help the heroes in their fight.

First look at Galactus

With the use of one of the game’s sniper rifles, it’s possible for players to look through the scope, at the object in the sky, and spy him. He’s obviously been getting closer and closer over the season, but thanks to new leaks, we’ve got a better look at the figure than ever before.

It turns out there’s actually a standard sized Galactus skin in the game’s files. Perhaps we’ll be able to run around as the Devourer of Worlds after the event. Only time will tell.

Here are some datamined images of Galactus’ model, too.

The main rumor concerning Phase 4 of the MCU is that Galactus will indeed be the archetypal villain of the main films. The Devourer of Worlds quite literally does what he says on the tin, and his power is unmatched.

The Fortnite tie-in will be a great way to introduce casual fans to the presence of one of the universe’s most powerful, cosmic entities.

We’ve also got a look at where Galactus is. It seems he’s positioned right about the ruins POI in-game from this screenshot from Fortnite leaker, Fevers.

Rising Out of the Water

ShiinaBR also tweeted on November 22, 2020 that Galactus has slowly begun to rise out of the water. We’ll make sure to update this article when we have a better look at this.

Lazing Device

On November 4, Fortnite data miner Mang0e tweeted about a mysterious new weapon in the works. Hardly anything is known about what this ‘Lazing Device’ is. However, Mang0e believes it could perhaps be a prototype for the upcoming Cosmos rifle.

Its base stats are that of the Bolt Sniper Rifle, which is the same as the Cosmos ones, too. Mang0e goes on to say in their Twitter thread that this is all speculation, however, but rebuffs his claims by saying that they were right about the Slurp Bazooka in the past.
