The latest Fortnite collaboration features characters from the Naruto franchise, with skins, emotes, weapon wraps, and more. One of the most sought-after items is the Manda Glider, which can be earned for free by completing the new Nindo Challenges. Here’s what you need to know about the new Fortnite Naruto crossover.

How to begin the Fortnite Naruto Nindo challenges

First, you’ll need to log into the Fortnite Naruto crossover event page using your Epic Games credentials. Once you’re logged in, you’ll be able to pick a path from one of the four characters, with tasks assigned to each.

  • Itachi: Finish in the top six a total of five times
  • Gaara: Survive 24 storm circles
  • Hinata: Catch 20 fish
  • Orochimaru: Get 18 eliminations in total

You aren’t restricted to one character, though. Each one can be overlapped and completed.

Every time you complete one of the aforementioned challenges, you earn a badge. To earn the fancy Akatsuki Weapon Wrap, you need to complete one character’s path, which is done by earning 10 badges. This means you’ll need to complete a character’s task 10 times. For instance, to finish Hinata’s path, you need to catch 20 fish 10 times, which equates to 200 fish total.

You can check your stats on the Fortnite X Naruto crossover page, but keep in mind, it may take up to an hour to reflect on the site itself.

To earn the Manda Glider, you need to complete all four character paths. By the end, you will have eliminated 180 players, reached the top-six spot 50 times, survived 240 storm phases, and caught 200 fish.

Alternatively, you can purchase this item as part of a bundle from the item shop starting on Thursday, June 23rd at 8 p.m. Eastern.

When does the Fortnite Naruto Nindo crossover event end?

This will take you a considerable amount of time, but luckily, the challenges will be available for the next two weeks. Specifically, you have until Thursday, July 7, 2022, at noon Eastern to wrap up your challenges, which should give you plenty of time to get through them.
