The Cool New Skins Of Fortnite Season 6: Dire Werewolf, Calamity, DJ Yonder, And More
Too cool for school.
The release of Fortnite: Battle Royale Season 6 means that there's a brand-new Battle Pass, which in turn offers a whole bunch of new cosmetic goodies for players to work towards unlocking. Of these, arguably the most coveted will be the skins and outfits--and Season 6 has more than a few cool ones to check out and try to get your hands on.
Two of these skins are Legendary tier and have a cool touch where they evolve through different stages, becoming more detailed as they go along. The first is the Calamity skin, which begins as a female character rocking a cowboy hat, a white tank top, and some shorts. However, as the skin evolves she gets a bandana, a coat, and eventually a long coat (making her look like a Bloodborne hunter), which is then adorned with neon purple trim.
The second Legendary outfit is called Dire, which is unlocked by reaching the max rank of level 100 with the paid Battle Pass. The male character starts off fairly simple, wearing some jeans, a red zip-up jumper, a biker coat and a red headband. However, the iterations on the skin go full Teen Wolf, as he grows a snout, fur, sharp teeth, eventually becoming a full on werewolf complete with shredded clothes, talons, and a 'tude.
The other skins are also pretty neat. DJ Yonder is Fortnite's llama if it was a member of Daft Punk; Giddy-Up has your character looking like it's riding on a llama; Fable is inspired by Little Red Riding Hood; Dusk has a vampiric theme; and Nightshade features a well-dressed jack-o'-lantern. You can take a look at those skins above.
There's plenty more beyond skins to unlock as part of the Season 6 Battle Pass, however, and the other emotes, back blings, contrails, sprays, and banner icons are all very cool. You can see everything in our gallery of all the Fortnite Season 6 Battle Pass rewards.
The first week of challenges is also upon us and, as always, we've got a breakdown of what you'll need to do here. The hardest challenge for Week 1 can be found in the paid Battle Pass tier and involves finding seven Streetlight Spotlights and then dancing beneath them. We've put together a map of where we found them, and a video, so you can use these to get it done too. Check out our Fortnite Season 6 Week 1 challenge guide for more details.
