Fortnite is one of the most popular video games ever.

Before going into the details of the procedure on how to unlock Neymar Jr on Fortnite , I think it may interest you to know more about this possibility.
Well, the costume dedicated to the well-known footballer arrived within the Epic Games title on the day of April 27, 2021 . The latter was “accompanied” by various primordial forms , which in other words are modified skins that “transform” the player.
Obviously, since these are costumes , the latter do not change the gameplay , although in the presentation trailer we see the player “transform” into one of his primordial forms and kick a bomb directly into the enemy building, causing it to explode.
In the game, however, it is only aesthetic elements , as has already happened in the past with characters like The Mandalorian . By the way, just as happened with the latter, also for what concerns Neymar Jr it is necessary to have the Battle Pass in order to unlock the appropriate costume and access the tasks.
More precisely, you must have the Battle Pass of Season 6 of Chapter 2 of Fortnite, or the one relating also to Lara Croft of Tomb Raider , which began on March 16, 2021 and with a deadline set for June 8, 2021 (last day also to obtain the Neymar skin). So be careful to follow this tutorial during the promotional period involved, otherwise the player’s costume may no longer be available.
Remember that the Battle Pass can be purchased at 950 V-Buck in its “basic variant”. If, on the other hand, you want to have 25 levels included , the price is 2,800 V-Buck . In case you don’t know, V-Bucks are a virtual currency inside the Epic Games title.
These “coins” can be obtained either by playing and taking advantage of the rewards of the free Battle Pass , a method which, however, can take a long time, as well as several Seasons, to reach the necessary V-Bucks, or through micro-transactions . To be clear, generally 1,000 V-Bucks cost 7.99 euros . More details here .
The payment for micro-transactions obviously depends on the platform you usually play on. Just to give you a concrete example, if you are using a PlayStation console , you might be interested in taking a look at my tutorial on how to pay on PlayStation Store .
In any case, generally it is not anything too complex: just set a valid payment method , in case you have not already done so, then confirm the transaction . In short, you shouldn’t have too much trouble completing this operation.
In any case, once you have obtained the V-Bucks , to buy the Battle Pass you just need to start Fortnite , go to the main screen of the Battle Royale mode , move to the BATTLE PASS tab , present at the top, and first press the BUY BATTLE PASS button and later on that BUY .
After that, you may be asked to press the CONFIRM button to get the “base” Battle Pass at 950 V-Buck or alternatively on the CONFIRM AND ADD 25 LEVELS one , in order to purchase the 2,800 V-Buck “bundle” .
Perfect, now that you have the Battle Pass of Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6, you have all the requirements to obtain the aesthetic elements related to Neymar.
How to unlock Neymar Jr on Fortnite
After showing you the general situation and all the requirements of the case, I think it’s time to take action and explain how to actually get the Neymar Jr skin inside Fortnite . Below you can find all the details of the case, both in relation to the “basic costume” and the other possibilities offered by the game.
How to get the Neymar skin on Fortnite
Starting from the element probably most “coveted” by the players, the Neymar Jr skin is obtained on Fortnite by completing various challenges proposed by the game, which are obviously unlocked once the Battle Pass is obtained (as explained in the preliminary chapter ).
Don’t worry: this isn’t anything that complicated, as there are no weekly objectives or boss missions whatsoever (as has been the case in the past). Simply, you have to complete 5 assignments of the players on the Island .
In other words, football-loving characters have arrived on the game map . The mechanics are the same as in the previous Seasons: while you are carrying out a Battle Royale, it is possible to run into NPCs (non-player characters), marked with the cartoon icon .
If in the past it was possible to activate, for example, the bounties through the latter, now speaking with football-loving NPCs it is possible to be assigned missions . For example, some character may ask you to walk a certain distance , while another may tell you to hit a target with the Soccer Ball emote .
The latter is obtained, together with the Neymar Jr banner , the first time you speak with a character of this type. In short, the important thing is to play in Battle Royale , talk to the NPCs (only those who love football, not the others) and complete 5 missions provided by the latter, choosing the ones you think are simpler.
Going into more detail, the positions of the 3 football fields , in which there are the 3 NPCs to interact with, are: Holly Hedges , Pacific Park and Moli Molesti . By going to these locations, which you can find on the map, you will easily be able to locate the various characters , as they are marked with a cartoon icon .
In general, the requests of the NPCs are essentially three: walk for a while , score a goal or hit a target in the corner of the soccer goal. Sometimes the characters ask to challenge them, but I advise you to avoid this, as the others are very simple missions.
The only advice I would like to give you is to access the locker (you can also do it at the end of a game using the appropriate quick button) and select the Soccer ball toy , so that your character always has it available. layout.
By doing so, when you are near one of the soccer goals , which are right where the aforementioned NPCs are , you can simply use this element to score or hit the targets (remember that, on console , to access these elements you have to press and hold the controller’s down arrow button , then selecting what you want to do ).
Alternatively, if that doesn’t work, I recommend that you try the special Soccer Ball emote (always accessible by pressing the down arrow on console).
For the rest, once you have obtained the skin , to set it you need to go to the CABINET tab , press on the costume box , that is the first in the upper left, and select the Neymar Jr skin , then confirming your choice.
How to complete Neymar’s tasks in Fortnite
How do you say? Have you unlocked the Neymar Jr skin on Fortnite but would you also like to get the other aesthetic elements dedicated to the player? No problem, I’ll tell you how to do it right away!
In this case, the elements most “coveted” by users are obviously the skins of the primordial shapes seen in the trailer mentioned in the preliminary chapter . However, you must know that in reality these are not really costumes, as these forms can be activated through a special emote .
In any case, having the latter is very simple: simply set the Neymar Jr skin obtained previously and eliminate 3 opponents as the footballer .
In short, you simply have to play your games on Fortnite and try to make 3 kills . You will see that you will have no particular problems in obtaining the Shhh emote , which you can then use to “awaken” the primordial forms of the player.
For the rest, other elements that can be obtained are the Joia Trophy decorative back , which requires the player to use the soccer ball toy as Neymar Jr by making the ball “go down” for 500 meters , and the Jaguar Shot pickaxe , which instead requires you to score a goal .
To complete these missions, just use the Soccer Ball toy or the “associated” emote , which I explained to you how to set up in the previous chapter . As for the 500 meters to be reached by the ball, in reality it is often enough to go to an area where there is a slight slope and continue to shoot the ball several times , perhaps moving the view each time.
How to unlock Neymar (Exhibition) in Fortnite
If you thought the Neymar-related items ended up with the football-loving NPC assignments, you’re wrong. In fact, within Fortnite there are other rewards related to the player, including a variant of the basic skin called Neymar (Exhibition) .
Among other things, the latter also allows access to another primordial form , if combined with the Shhh emote . In any case, to get this variant you must complete 60 epic assignments from Season 6 of Chapter 2 of Fortnite.
I remind you that the epic tasks are those in purple color that you can find by pressing the NEW ASSIGNMENTS button , present in the main screen of the Battle Royale mode of the game. In short, just follow the instructions on that page during the Season.
For complete information, you must also know that, more and completing a number of epic tasks , you can get the sprays are ready , the ‘ emoticons Strike furtive , the hang-gliding Acrobat air and the’ emote Rejoicing Hang Loose .
In short, now you know a little everything there is to know about the possibilities related to Neymar within the title of Epic Games. For the rest, since you are a fan of the latter, I would advise you to take a look at the page of my site dedicated to Fortnite . In fact, in the latter you can find many other tutorials that could be for you.
