Mando’s Bounty is now live in Fortnite Season 5, giving player a chance to unlock the exclusive Beskar Umbrella.
Epic have been all-in with the Fortnite crossovers in Season 5. They brought Mando, Master Chief, Walking Dead characters, Kratos, and more to the game this season, alone.
In Fortnite v15.30, Epic doubled-down on the Mandalorian theme by introducing the new Mando’s Bounty limited-time mode – a refreshing take on the old Wick’s Bounty mode from Chapter 1.
Players of Wick’s Bounty – or the plain Bounty LTM – know the general idea of how this works. You have three lives to eliminate players and earn points. When you are one of the top three players in the game, you are marked for everyone to see.
Eliminating a player grants you their coins if you’re quick enough to pick them up. Be careful, though, as this Bounty mode has a slight twist. Mando, himself, will be hunting you down if you’re among the top players late in the match.
Like Wick’s Bounty before it, you will be able to receive an exclusive and limited-time glider for winning: Mando’s Bounty Beskar Umbrella. Here’s how to get your hands on it.
How to unlock the Beskar Umbrella
The process of unlocking the Beskar umbrella is a simple one. All you need to do is hop into a Bounty game (all team sizes are available), kill enemies, and win. Of course, you probably know that it’s not as easy as it sounds.
Our recommendation would be to try to survive until the end. Try to avoid death in the early-game, and wait for high-value targets to approach. This sounds like a simple BR tip, but it’s arguably more important to play slower in Bounty – even if you’re skilled at Fortnite.
Being in the top three players during the early-game is never a place you want to be. You’ll be marked on the map, and heighten the chance that you lose it all. Ideally, you’ll want to have all three lives going into end-game. That way – if you die – you can respawn and exact revenge on your foe.
Once you finally win your match, the umbrella will be waiting for you in your locker. Players have until February 9 at 9 AM ET to unlock the Beskar Umbrella before the LTM rotates out of the game.
