When is Neymar coming to Fortnite?

Epic Games has confirmed that Brazilian football star Neymar Jr is coming to Fortnite on April 27th – so this week! It has also been revealed that Neymar will have 11 cosmetics – more than the Mandalorian has! He’ll be the first sportsperson to join Fortnite, and it’ll be interesting to see who follows in his studded footsteps. Fingers crossed for Teddy Sheringham to be next.

How to unlock the Neymar Jr Fortnite Skin?

According to the official blog post from Epic Games, the Neymar Jr. Fortnite Skin can be unlocked by players who have bought the Battle Pass. The official blog post states:

"Neymar Jr. can be contained no more! Starting this week on April 27, you can tackle his Battle Pass Quests, allowing you to unlock his Outfit and other items from his high-octane Set. By completing Neymar Jr Quests and Epic-rarity Quests, unlock and unleash his primal forms."

In addition to the Neymar Jr Fortnite Skin, players can unlock a total of 11 unique cosmetic items. As anticipated, Neymar Jr's arrival in Fortnite brings with it a new set of challenges and quests for Fortnite Season 6 and will go live after the 16.30 update.

Fortnite Neymar quests lists

With the Neymar skin comes a series of quests – all centred around the footballing star himself. By completing the quests, which are part of the season 6 battle pass, you will unlock many cool things along the way.

The full breakdown of all the quests is as follows – and just to be clear, the use of the word “soccer” is from Epic Games, not us!

* Talk to an island soccer player: Soccer-loving Characters on the Island. Strike a conversation! Unlocks the Soccer Ball Emote Toy and a Neymar Jr Banner.

* Complete 3 quests from island soccer players: A good player always helps their teammates. Unlocks the Neymar Jr-themed Matador Loading Screen.

* Complete 5 quests from island soccer players: Become a true ace. Unlocks the Neymar Jr Outfit.

* Score a goal with the soccer ball toy as Neymar Jr: You can do this one in your sleep. Unlocks the Jaguar Strike Pickaxe.

* Eliminate 3 opponents as Neymar Jr: “Complete this objective to free the primal self within.” This Quest unlocks the Shhh. Emote, a built-in Emote for Neymar Jr that awakens one of his primal forms.

Think the quests are all you need to do? Incorrect! There are also epic quests to take on and these are part of the Chapter 2 Season 6 Epic Quest line – complete a certain amount and you will unlock the below.

But wait, there’s even more! Fortnite’s Creative mode is getting in on the fun too, with Neymar Jr and PUMA sharing a Creative experience between April 27th and May 4th.

There is a new Paris-themed Welcome Hub made by community creators Kryw and Iscariote, and a new casual combat experience in the “Go Crazy Arena” playlist made by community creators Madmoods and Immature.

The Go Crazy Arena features 8v8 combat and has power-ups and infinite respawns enabled for maximum carnage. Eliminating players earns gold, and that can be used to get bonuses for yourself and other members of your team. Once a team reaches 200 eliminations – they win!
