The Fortnite anime skin has been added to the game in Chapter 2 Season 5. Called “Lexa,” this anime character sports white hair, red eyes, and some interesting black gloves. Here’s how to unlock the Fortnite Anime skin on PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Android.
How to unlock the Fortnite anime skin
To unlock the Fortnite anime skin, players must get to tier 73 on the Season 5 Battle Pass.
First, purchase the Battle Pass or have it included as part of the Fortnite Crew subscription. Then, complete challenges until Tier 73 is achieved. Then the Lexa skin will be unlocked.
As part of the Y-Labs Hunter set, Lexa’s description reads: “Don’t let the smile fool you.” That smile is apparently built-in and no doubt intended to lower the defenses of soon-to-be victims!
It appears that Epic Games will be adding more new anime skins to the game, as part of the “Y-Labs” set. The design is very similar to the androids in Dragon Ball Z. Fans of that anime will no doubt be eager to equip Lexa and start using her in battle.
Perhaps Y-Labs will be expanded upon in future seasons, where mech warriors take over the island and players have to stop them. It sounds a bit “out there,” but Fortnite is always full of surprises.
