The Meteoric Rise challenges are now available in Fortnite Battle Royale, meaning it’s time to grind them and get the all-new Scientist skin.

One of the coolest and most mysterious skins we’ve seen so far, the Scientist is the Visitor but better – now with full armor and a menacing look.

Thankfully, the missions to acquire the skin are fairly easy, but you’ll have to complete all seven to get the legendary Scientist skin.

In-keeping with the theme of the challenge set, many of them involve Rift Zones, which it is believed the Scientist/Visitor himself is responsible for.
