Fortnite players who own the Season 6 Battle Pass can unlock the Neymar Jr. skin for free, but it’ll take a few rounds to do so. You’ll have to find the Fortnite Soccer Player characters first, but they might not be around for long.
Fortnite teased the addition of Neymar Jr. at the start of Season 6. Similar to Deadpool and Aquaman, Neymar Jr. is this season’s secret Battle Pass character. He’s given to Battle Pass owners for free, but they have to complete challenges to earn him.
These challenges aren’t normally very hard to complete. Season 5’s Predator skin only required players to eliminate the Predator mini-boss at Stealthy Stronghold, but Neymar Jr. is proving a little more difficult to obtain.
This is because players have to complete five quests given to them by one of the three Fortnite Soccer Player characters. Usually, players want to stay away from the sweaty soccer skins, but now they will have to go hunting for them.
Pleasant Park Soccer Player
The most obvious place to find a Soccer Player is also the most dangerous. One of the Fortnite Soccer Player characters is located right in the middle of Pleasant Park’s soccer field. Pleasant Park being a hot drop on any given day is now swarming with dozens of players who are all trying to complete their challenges.
Because Pleasant Park is a popular place to drop, players might have better luck if they find one of the other two Soccer Players. However, the number of enemy players isn’t the biggest issue players have to deal with.
Holly Hedges Soccer Player
One of the Soccer Player characters is located at Holly Hedges. This POI is located on the west side of the map, and the inclusion of the Soccer Player has made it a hot spot. Regardless, the Fortnite Soccer Player character is located on the small soccer field outside the eastern-most house.
Dirty Docks Soccer Player
The last Fortnite Soccer Player character is located on the far east side of the map at Dirty Docks. There is an out-of-place soccer field on the east side of the docks directly south of the large warehouse building. The Soccer Player will be standing on the pitch.
The greatest challenge when it comes to finding the Fortnite Soccer Player characters is not being too late. They are easy enough to find, but enemy players have made a habit of killing the NPCs before another player can use them. While a good strategy would have been waiting until the commotion dies down, players will have to jump into the fray instead.
