Fortnite Season 6 Guide: How to Unlock the Calamity and Dire Skins

It’s a new season, and you know what that means? New skins! Much like Drift and Ragnarok before them, this season’s battle pass introduces two new skins which can be upgraded with XP.

The first you’ll unlock at Tier 1, Calamity, is a cowgirl who gains extra clothing options and a sweet aura when maxed. At the other end of the scale, this season’s Tier 100 offering, Dire, is a human who evolves into a werewolf, complete with different colour options.

Unfortunately, there isn’t a quick way to gain XP. Your best bet is complete every week’s challenges while making sure to always complete your dailies. Daily challenges may not seem like a lot of XP, but added up over the 69-day period, it amounts to a decent chunk. So even if they make you want to cry, stick with them. It’ll be worth it in a few months.

And don’t forget, once you’ve unlocked the base skin for each character, you’ll be able to level them up even after the season ends. So if you don’t max them out, don’t worry. You won’t be time-gated from unlocking their final forms.

Trusted Reviews has compiled all of the information you need on Fortnite Season 6 skins including weekly challenges, required experience and more.
