We’re still in Week 6 of Fortnite Season 8, but thanks to some advance promotion from Epic we now know what the Discovery skin reward will look like. After a teaser image appeared with the phrase “Ruin is coming…”, a full reveal has now taken place to confirm that this dark and menacing figure who appears to be emerging from lava will be the reward for Battle Pass owners who complete eight weeks worth of weekly challenges. We don’t know yet whether there will be further unlockable styles for Ruin, as with the Fortnite Prisoner stages last season, but we should have more information in the coming weeks.
Week 6 also means players now have access to the sixth loading screen for the Fortnite Discovery Challenges – providing they’ve beaten all of the Fortnite Battle Pass Challenges for the required number of weeks already. If this all sounds like Greek to you then here’s what you need to know – for every week in which you’re able to complete all seven of the Battle Pass Challenges, you’ll receive a new loading screen as a reward that contains a hidden clue. Work out the details to determine what location on the island it’s pointing to, then make your way there to collect some hidden Battle Stars or a Banner to give yourself some new customisation options for your personal flag.
Remember that you must complete the Fortnite Discovery Challenges for the required number of weeks and receive the particular loading screen before your reward will appear in that location, so if you try to follow this guide without working through the Weekly Challenges first then you’re going to come up empty handed in your search for hidden loot.
Fortnite Discovery Challenges Skin – Ruin
As we said above, you can unlock the Discovery outfit by completing 55 of the Weekly Challenges in total, which means that it will be Week 8 of the current season before anyone can get hold of it. However, Epic have got ahead of any potential leakers by revealing the Ruin skin several weeks early in the above tweet – so now we know what this exclusive skin will look like, and from previous experience it’s safe to expect that it will be of Legendary rarity and come with a matching back bling to complete the look.
