How to unlock the Armored Kratos style in Fortnite

Kratos from God of War has made it to Fortnite. Find out how to unlock the Armored Kratos style for free in Season 5.

Published

Kratos has landed on the Fortnite island, but his single style isn’t his only form. Here’s how to unlock his Armored outfit.

After a full season worth of crossovers, Epic slowed things down with Fortnite Season 5. The new season was released with only one crossover character in the roster: The Mandalorian.

It only took a couple of days for Epic to add to their Season 5 crossover roster. On December 3, Kratos from God of War came to the Item Shop. This preceeds the rumored addition of Master Chief from the Halo franchise.

Although God of War is a Playstation exclusive video game, players on all platforms could grab Kratos and his skin pack. You know that Sony had to do something for their console owners, however.

PlayStation players who play a single game with the Kratos skin will unlock the Armored Kratos style for their skin – it’s as simple as that.

Unfortunately, Android, Xbox, PC, and Nintendo Switch players will need to stick to the standard Kratos outfit – unless you have a PS5 lying around.

If you don’t have a PlayStation on-hand, the only option you have is to ask a trustworthy friend to log onto your account and play a game for you. Giving out your account information is risky and usually a bad idea, so proceed with caution.

Hopefully for Xbox players, Microsoft will have the same deal with Epic Games when Master Chief comes to the Item Shop. He’s one of the most iconic characters in all of gaming and will probably be a popular pick on all platforms.

Characters returned to Fortnite in Season 8. Here are all of the Fortnite character locations in the new season, along with which ones offer upgrades, prop disguises, bounties, and more.

Fortnite first introduced NPCs in Season 5, with the large-scale overhaul of the economy. NPCs are back once again in Season 8, and they are just as useful as they have been in previous seasons.

However, with the return of the Punch Card system, NPCs are more important than ever. Players will need to find and talk with NPCs to start questlines. These quests are the main way players will earn XP throughout the season.

Without further ado, here are all of the Fortnite Character locations in Season 8.

Fortnite characters locations Season 8 map

Luckily, the folks at Fortnite.GG has an interactive map of all of the NPCs in Season 8.

Here’s a map of all of the NPCs in Fortnite Season 8. We’ll keep this updated over the course of the season as more appear or are found around the map. Bigfoot, for instance, is missing from this list. We’re not sure whether that’s because he isn’t there or just hasn’t been found yet.

  • Disguised man: offers a prop disguise
  • Pink Rift: allows you to activate a Rift
  • Yellow Cloud: Reveal Future Storm Circle

Compared to seasons past, the number of Fortnite character locations in Season 8 is very minimal. As well, players can no longer upgrade weapons through NPCs. The pool of Mythic weapons has also been minimized.

The Sideways Scythe is the third Sideways weapon to be added to Fortnite Season 8, and here is how to get its Mythic version.

The Sideways is one of the main gimmicks introduced in Fortnite Season 8. It’s a special zone that is home to monstrous creatures. It also doesn’t allow any building once inside.

In addition to The Sideways, Fortnite Season 8 also introduced Sideways Monsters, Sideways Chests, and the Cube Assassin. Players can find all of these inside The Sideways.

Players can access The Sideways via the large pimple-like marking on the map. They can also spawn Sideways Anomalies by walking towards the purple rifts on the map. Here’s how to get the Fortnite Mythic Sideways Scythe.

Getting the Sideways Scythe

Like any of the Sideways weapons, the Sideways Scythe can only be obtained from The Sideways. Players can find them as floor loot or inside Sideways chest. You can find these chests inside Sideways Anomalies.

Additionally, players can get the Sideways Scythe by killing the new Caretaker monster. However, these massive beasts are not easy to take down.

The Sideways Scythe can be found in five different rarities. The higher the rarity, the more damage each hit of the scythe will do. You can find them from Grey to Orange rarity.

Players can also heal themselves by eliminating players with the Sideways Scythe. It can deal up to 46 damage per swing which is more than double the damage of the pickaxe.

Upgrading the Scythe to Mythic

Players can upgrade the Fortnite Sideways Scythe just like they would the Minigun and Rifle. You will need to kill Sideways Monsters to get Cube Parts. You can use these parts to upgrade the Sideways Scythe to Mythic Rarity.

  • Uncommon (green) -> Rare (blue) – 15 Cube Monster parts
  • Rare (blue) -> Epic (purple) – 20 Cube Monster Parts
  • Epic (purple) -> Legendary (orange) – 25 Cube Monster Parts
  • Legendary (orange) -> Mythic (gold) – 50 Cube Monster Parts

Players can upgrade the Fortnite Sideways Scythe via the crafting menu. This is the same menu where players can use Nuts and Bolts to sidegrade normal weapons.
