How to get the Neymar Jr outfit in Fortnite
Neymar Jr is only obtainable by those who’ve purchased the Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 6 battle pass. Once you own that, you’ll be able to accept quests from soccer players following the next update. To unlock the basic Neymar Jr outfit, Epic Games says you’ll have to “Complete 5 Quests from Island Soccer players.”
We don’t know what these quests are just yet as Neymar Jr. has not been released, but if you’re interested in this outfit, you should take the time to learn what these are and complete them to get it. Unlocking his outfit is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to getting Neymar Jr content in Fortnite, though!
What are Fortnite’s other Neymar Jr rewards?
There are several other quests for battle pass owners to complete before and after unlocking Neymar Jr. Speaking to a soccer-loving character on the island will grant players the Soccer Ball Emote Toy and Neymar Jr Banner. Before you get the Neymar Jr outfit, you’ll get the Matador Loading Screen after you complete 3 quests from island soccer players.
Once you get the Neymar Jr outfit, you have the opportunity to earn even more items. If you drop-kick the Soccer Ball Emote Toy you unlocked earlier 500 meters, you’ll get the Joia Trophy Back Bling. If you’re able to score a goal with it, you’ll unlock the Jaguar Strike Pickaxe. By eliminating three other players as Neymar Jr, you’ll get the “Shhh.” Emote.
This emote is key to Neymar Jr’s red and blue primal form, which looks straight out of an anime. Neymar Jr also has exhibition alts for most of his items. You can get those as well as the “I’m ready!” Spray, Stealth Shot Emoticon, Hang Loose Celebration Emote, and Aerial Acrobat Glider by completing Epic Quests.
Using the “Shhh.” Emote while wearing the Exhibition outfit will let players use an alternate yellow and green version of his Fortnite outfit.
What are the Fortnite Neymar Jr in-game events?
