With the new season 4 for Fortnite Battle Royale, Epic Games have added new and exciting challenges including a brand new system to rank up and improve the looks of your skins.
As part of the new season, there have of course been a number of new skins added, but developer’s have come up with a new way to keep fans playing throughout the season, even once you have earned (or purchased) the top tiers.
In previous seasons, once you had unlocked all the the skins you wanted, that was pretty much it, and there was little more incentive to continue to climb up the ranks.
However, Fortnite have came up with a brilliant new way to keep you motived – by allowing you to earn new upgrades to your characters, by increasing your season level.
Now, for each new Fortnite skin, you can earn new parts including the pick axe, leg piece, arm piece, head armor and chest plate, all which make your character look even more intimidating.
It looks like you will need to have the skin unlocked in order to see a preview of each piece, and it will take you a decent amount of playing to unlock the full set, with some requiring you be season level 80.
And by the looks of it, there is no shortcut either, so you cannot just cash out with V-bucks, you will really need to grind out the levels.
This video from TmarTn shows you exactly how to rank your skins up and upgrade them, and has some previews for the most epic character – the “Omega” skin.
So while in previous seasons the coolest skin could simply be purchased by those willing to spend their hard earned money, the new season 4 system will reward playing and ranking up even more.
