Superman and his civilian alter ego, Clark Kent, will arrive at Fortnite Tuesday as part of the Season 7 Battle Pass.
How does the ‘Fortnite’ Chapter 2 Season 7 Battle Pass work?
News week has already prepared an explanation of how the Season 7 Battle Pass works.
To quickly summarize, the latest version of by fortnite progression system is much less linear than before. Instead of unlocking skins, harvesting tools, emotes, and gliders at predetermined levels, you now earn a special currency called ‘Battle Stars’.
These can be spent to swap any items you want (in any order you want), meaning you can now focus on the cosmetics you actually want and skip the rest.
Acquiring the Battle Stars themselves is done by accumulating enough experience points (XP) to level up. You can do this by completing quests, defeating enemy players, or just spending V-bucks to give yourself a boost.
Once you’ve earned a few stars, you can then head to the Battle Pass tab in the main menu to choose your prize.
‘Fortnite’: How to unlock Superman and Clark Kent Cosmetics
All cosmetic items that come to Fortnite is available through the battle pass system and sometimes you just need to buy them. For example, the recent Bloodsport and LeBron James packs could only be claimed through the Item Shop.
Superman cosmetics are featured as part of the Season 7 Battle Pass, so you don’t have to worry about recharging your V-Bucks allowance this time around. However, the new items have special unlocking requirements, which were disclosed in advance by reputable data miners on Twitter and YouTube. Their findings have since been verified, as people managed to unlock the items earlier.
Rather than simply purchasing the Clark Kent outfit, or one of the associated cosmetics, with Battle Stars, you have to complete a limited-time questline instead.
Here are the requirements for unlocking each of the Superman themed items that will be featured in the current Battle Pass.
Call to Action Emoticon, Shield Spray and Clark Kent Outfit
When the pack goes live later Tuesday, three quest-giver NPCs will appear on the island. These will be Armored Batman (from the recent Fortnite Crossover Cartoon), Beast Boy, and the last son of Krypton himself.
The heroes will each offer you three missions to accept. By completing only one of them, from any character, you will earn the “Call to Action” emoticon. Meanwhile, completing three objectives will grab you the shield spray, and checking off five will unlock Clark Kent’s outfit.
According to the leaks, the quests are as follows:
- Beast Boy: Take damage from a player and survive.
- Beast Boy: Reach speed 99 in a vehicle.
- Beast Boy: Defeat the aliens.
- Armored Batman: Use a launch pad.
- Armored Batman: Pilot a saucer.
- Armored Batman: Beast Boy: Defeat aliens.
- Clark Kent: Visit three different named locations.
- Clark Kent: Visit the mothership or an alien biome.
- Clark Kent: Defeat the aliens.
In case you were wondering, data miners have discovered that Batman will be located in Dirty Docks, Beast Boy will be roaming Weeping Woods, and Superman will be in the orchard southeast of Craggy Cliffs.
Superman’s Outfit, Secret Identity Emote, and Superman’s Cloak
Once you unlock the Clark Kent skin, you can then use it to earn some extra cosmetics.
One of the new missions asks you to interact with an old-fashioned phone booth while dressed as Clark Kent, in homage to how the hero originally used them as impromptu changing rooms when he needed to. save the day. As evidenced by the leaks, these stalls can be found at Craggy Cliffs, the gas station near Steel Farm, Retail Row, near Misty Meadows Bus Station and around the Viking Vessel.
Fittingly, stepping into one of the phone booths as Clark Kent will grant you access to the classic Superman costume, as well as the “Secret Identity” emote and hero’s cloak as a form of bling back.
Daily Planet Back Bling
A miniaturized version of the rotating globe that sits atop the Daily Planet can also be fitted as a back bling.
To unlock this cosmetic you will need to equip the Clark Kent outfit, then slide through a series of rings floating just above the Weeping Woods. It is undoubtedly a nod to the infamous Superman 64 game, in which the DC hero spent an inordinate amount of time flying through hoops instead of fighting crime or saving people.
Kal-El’s Cape Glider, Loading Screen, Solitude Attacker, and Shadow Color Style
The rest of the Superman cosmetics can be unlocked by completing a required number of epic quests.
In case you didn’t know, these missions are distinguished by their purple color coding in the quest menu and will require you to perform certain actions during multiplayer matches. You don’t need to accept them from quest givers and your progress will be saved automatically.
Here is the number of Epic Quests you need to complete for each item:
- Cape Ka-El (glider) – 63 epic quests.
- Son of Krypton loading screen – 73 epic quests.
- Solitude Striker (Harvesting Tool) – 78 epic quests.
- Shadow Style – 84 Epic Quests
Superman cosmetics will be added to the Fortnite battle pass Tuesday at 10 a.m. ET.
