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 Party Crashers Pickaxe: G1/G2 – H1/H2
  • Coordinates for Ready Ruck Back Bling: G7/G8 – H7/H8
Epic GamesThe Chaos Rising Loading Screen shows both the pickaxe and back-bling, along with coordinates for where they can be found on the map.

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.

Fortnite tease exclusive new Drift Crew skin with Fox Clan hints

UPDATE 1/24: After making several tweets and updating their avatar, the official Fortnite Twitter account deleted all tweets made on January 24 and reversed their avatar to the previous picture. The official Fortnite Twitter account started the hype train for the game’s next Fortnite Crew release by changing their avatar and issuing cryptic tweets about ‘Fox Clan,’ and fans are already speculating on when the next big surprise might arrive.

Fortnite has a long history of using in-game and social media teasers to hype up the BR’s future content. Whether teasing some new skins or a complete rework of the game’s universe, Epic Games is no stranger when it comes to feeding players a slow drip of hints to build up the hype.

With Chapter 2 Season 5 well underway, players have already been treated to special events like Terminator and Predator crossovers. However, Season 5 doesn’t end until March 15 and players are already looking for clues on what the season’s next content drop might include.

On January 24, Fortnite’s official Twitter account changed its avatar and tweeted out two mysterious hints linked to the game’s next big reveal. The community quickly flooded Twitter to discuss the teasers, but were then confused when the tweets were deleted only hours later.

Fortnite Drift Crew Pack Skin HYPEX Leak

Fortnite data miner HYPEX revealed the game’s new teasers are related to an upcoming Fortnite Crew skin for Drift.

The first tweet referenced establishing a connection and beginning a scan, which didn’t give fans much to go off of. However, the second part had some important implications, and included a reference to one of the games most iconic characters: Drift.

“Drift? Drift. Come in. Do you read me?” the last sentence read. Drift was originally introduced in Fortnite’s first Season 5, and was loved by players for his unique kitsune appearance and skins (kitsune means fox in Japanese, and these creatures often appear in Japanese folklore).

The second tweet issued a cryptic warning: “I know you don’t know who I am, but the Fox Clan is in trouble. We need you.” Fox Clan is something completely new to Fortnite, but it appeared to tie in with Drift’s previous in-game aesthetic and the account’s updated avatar.

The leaked Drift skin is the latest in a series of cosmetics introduced in Season 5.

Fortnite data miner HYPEX also believed the teasers are related to Drift. The leaker shared an image of an unreleased Drift skin – which appeared to be a female version of the previously-male character – and confirmed the skin will be included in the February edition of the Fortnite Crew subscription.

Fortnite Crew – Epic’s monthly subscription model – nets players each new battle pass and 1,000 V-bucks every season, along with Crew Packs that include an exclusive outfit and matching accessory. HYPEX confirmed that the teased Drift skin will be tied to an upcoming Crew Pack.

So far, Epic Games has not revealed any additional clues other than the two mysterious tweets. While new information will continue to be discovered by HYPEX and other data miners, no additional clues have been posted at the time of writing.

After issuing several more mysterious tweets after the first two were posted, the official Fortnite account then deleted all of the tweets teasing the new content and reverted the account’s avatar to its previous image.

It remains to be seen whether this is part of a larger plan involving the teaser process, or if Epic took these actions to correct a reveal that was made too early. The Fortnite and Epic Games accounts haven’t issued any additional clarifications at the time of writing.

Fortnite fans will need to wait for confirmation on exactly what Epic has planned for the February Crew Pack, and why these tweets were made and then deleted. We will make sure to keep you updated as any new information is revealed at Fortnite Intel on Twitter.
