Predator is coming to Fortnite. Here’s how to complete all of the challenges and unlock the free skin.
After a month of speculation, it seems all but certain that Predator will be the Season 5 secret skin. The v15.20 update revealed a crashed ship in Stealthy Stronghold, which we assume was how Predator got to the island.
Ahead, we’ll provide a guide to some of the more difficult challenges in the Predator questline, as well as give you some information on when you can expect to unlock the presumably free skin
When Will Predator come to Fortnite?
We don’t have any official date of when we can expect Predator to fully enter Fortnite, but our best guess has it on January 19. This is the date when the rest of the Predator challenges unlock, although this could be a placeholder.
We wouldn’t be surprised to see another three challenges become available next week, and the final three after that – putting the release date of the skin on January 26.
Predator challenge guide
Some of the Predator challenges are easier than others. The first challenge, for instance, only requires you to collect Medkits – something you can do on your own without a guide.
Ahead, we’ll give you all of the locations you need to visit for the trickier challenges. We’ll be updating this post as more challenges become available.
Find mysterious pod
The mysterious pod is located in the center of Stealthy Stronghold, as you might expect. A chest spawns in the driver’s seat, which appears to have a 100% spawn rate.
We assume that Predator will be walking around the POI at some point, and could even drop Season 5’s second Mythic weapon or item.
Talk with Beef Boss, Remedy, and Dummy
This one is going to be a bit annoying, as all three of these NPCs have multiple spawn locations. All three can spawn near the Stealthy Stronghold area, which is why they have some information on the ship that crash-landed at the POI.
Finding the three NPCs is going to take some effort, as you could land at Craggy Cliffs and find that Remedy isn’t there.
While you’re at it, you might as well try the Dub shotgun if you haven’t already. Dummy sells it, so you can kill two birds with one stone.
Predator has now been released on the island and is offering players a brand-new cloaking device. The device is still new, so it remains to be seen how powerful it’s going to be.
Defeating Predator for the first time awards you with his skin. After that, you’ll need to complete a series of additional challenges while wearing the skin to unlock a weapon wrap, back bling, and additional style.
You can find Predator near his ship at Stealthy Stronghold. At the time of writing, it’s going to take some substantial luck to find and eliminate him, as it’s a hotspot for players. Once you do, however, the skin will be yours to keep.
You can take a look at our guide to finding Predator’s apartment here. We’ll keep you posted if more Predator challenges surface.

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.
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:
- Go to Fortnite.GG
- Hit the drop-down menu in the top-left corner
- Navigate to “My Locker”
- 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.
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.
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.
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.
