How to unlock all Fortnite Season 5 Enlightened skins

Fortnite Season 5 has brought Enlightened skins back to the game. Here are all of the level requirements you need to unlock them.

Fortnite Season 5 has brought Enlightened skins back to the game for players who exceed level 100. Here’s how to unlock all of them.

Fortnite Season 5 made some significant changes to challenges – the likes of which haven’t been seen since the early days of the game.

Instead of collecting floating rings, visiting random locations, and dancing in specific spots, we’re completing challenges for playing the game; getting shotgun eliminations, traveling on foot, and dealing damage.

This probably isn’t a universally positive change for all players, but the overwhelming feedback indicates that most Fortnite players like the new challenges.

Enlightened skins have returned this season, as well, allowing players to unlock Sapphire, Topaz, and Zero Point styles for each of the Battle Pass skins – except for Mando. Here are all of the levels you need to hit if you want to unlock all of them.

Season 5 Enlightened skins level requirements

You will need to reach level 250 if you want to unlock all of the skins, with a new style being unlocked every 10 levels after hitting level 100.

The following breakdown shows the level requirements of each type of Enlightened skins, along with the order at which you’ll unlock them.

  • Sapphire level requirements: 110 – 150
  • Topaz level requirements: 160 – 200
  • Zero Point level requirements: 210- 250

The good news is that there’s a lot more XP to be had this season than there has been in the past. At least, you won’t need to hunt for XP coins, as was the case in previous seasons. All of the XP is available through quests that are easily viewed through the Quests Tab.

Additionally, you can look at how all of these skins look before unlocking them – something that wasn’t possible in past seasons. Good luck reaching level 250 by the end of Season 5!

How to see how much money you’ve spent in Fortnite

A new feature from Fortnite.GG allows players to show off their lockers and see how many V-Bucks they’ve spent on Fortnite skins.

Sweaty Fortnite skins 2021

A new feature from Fortnite companion website, Fortnite.GG, now allows players to show off their locker and see how many V-Bucks they’ve spent in Fortnite.

Fortnite Battle Royale has been out for almost three and a half years. Over that time, Epic have released thousands of cosmetic items for players to unlock, purchase, or otherwise add to their lockers.

We’re now into the 15th Battle Pass and 16th season of the game. If you’ve been playing Fortnite for a long time, then you’ve probably spent tens if not hundreds of thousands of V-Bucks on your locker collection.

Until now, there hasn’t been a way to see exactly how many V-Bucks you’ve spent. Fortnite.GG changed that with a recent update.

How much is your Fortnite locker worth?

Fortnite.GG is mainly known for creating interactive maps for Fortnite players. With their website, you can take a look at the spawn locations of all NPCs, Exotic weapons, wildlife, chests, and anything else in the game.

Now, with the addition of a recent feature, Fortnite.GG allows you to show off your locker and see just how many V-Bucks you’ve spent in the shop and on Battle Passes. All you need to do is:

  1. Go to Fortnite.GG
  2. Hit the drop-down menu in the top-left corner
  3. Navigate to “My Locker”
  4. Sign in with your Epic Games account

Shockingly, we learned that we’ve spent 118,200 V-Bucks since we started playing Fortnite when it released.

Of course, this doesn’t equate to real-world money. We have the Save the World version, which gives us free V-Bucks, and have taken advantage of several events and promotions. Still, that’s a lot of money on a video game.

Send us your lockers on Twitter @FortniteINTEL. We’ll retweet some of the big spenders in the community.

How to get free Fortnite rewards with Reboot-A-Friend event

The Fortnite Reboot-A-Friend promotion returns for Season 6. Here’s how to earn free skins and cosmetics by playing with firends.

Fortnite Reboot a Friend

The popular Fortnite Reboot-A-Friend event has returned. Players can now earn free in-game cosmetics by bringing their friends back to Fortnite Season 6. Here’s how.

Epic Games have reintroduced the popular Reboot-A-Friend promotion to Fortnite Season 6. This event rewards players for bringing their friends back to the game. Playing with friends who haven’t been on Fortnite in over 30 days will net you some exclusive rewards.

We saw the same promotion run last year, but Epic revamped it for 2021 – this time offering players some substantial rewards for rebooting their buddies.

Reboot-A-Friend Rewards

Unlike the first Reboot-A-Friend system, which ended in January 2021, players will earn points towards cosmetic rewards rather than rewards for each game they play. Players who reboot a friend will earn 100 points for their first game and 10 points for every game after that.

To unlock all of the rewards, you’ll need to earn 400 points. Here are the requirements for all of the Reboot-A-Friend rewards.

  • 100 points: Reboot a Friend Spray
  • 200 points: Heartbeat Wrap
  • 300 points: Toxic Flash Glider
  • 400 points: Plasma Carrot Pickaxe

You don’t need to rely on inactive players to receive your rewards, either. You need to Reboot someone to earn the 100-point bonus, but you can earn 10 points for every match you play with any friend.

If you reboot four friends, you can easily get 100 points per match and unlock all of the rewards in a single play session.

There’s no end date on the Reboot-A-Friend event as of now, but we assume Epic will change the prizes in the future. We’ll make sure to update you if they change any rewards or requirements.

Where to find the new Recycler in Fortnite Season 6

The Recycler is the first new item added to Fortnite Season 6. Here’s everything you need to know about where to find it.

Fortnite Recycler

The Recycler has finally come to Fortnite Season 6. Here’s everything you need to know about the newest weapon in the game, including the stats and how to find it.

In the most recent content update, Epic added the first new weapon to Fortnite Season 6: the Recycler. Like most weapons, you can find it in floor loot and chests. The Recycler spawns in Rare, Epic, and Legendary rarity.

The Recycler is an interesting weapon, as it doesn’t take any normal ammo to use. Instead, you suck up materials and structures and use that for ammo. The maximum magazine size is 3, but there is a virtually unlimited pool of ammo all around you at all times.

As expected, the damage of the Recycler scales based on its rarity. Here’s a breakdown of the statistics:

  • Rare: 75 damage
  • Epic: 79 damage
  • Legendary: 83 damage

This weapon probably isn’t worth upgrading if you find a blue one, as the damage difference doesn’t justify spending gold on an upgrade.

The Recycler works a lot like a Grenade Launcher does, but without the splash damage. You need to hit a player directly for it to deal any damage to them. It also isn’t too proficient at breaking walls with its primary fire.

With the limited use of the new weapon, we think it could be a tad underpowered. Right now, we don’t see much of a reason for someone to pick it up over an SMG, modded Bow, Shockwave Grenade, or additional healing item.

Despite this, it’s exciting to see Epic take new directions when creating Fortnite weapons. We’re excited to see what this means for the future of the game.
