How to unlock Boba Fett in Fortnite

Boba Fett will be making his arrival on the Island December 24, 2021 at 7pm ET! #DisneyPlusDay

— Fortnite (@FortniteGame) November 12, 2021

Boba Fett will launch in Fortnite on December 24 at 7 p.m. ET. This will coincide with the launch of the Disney+ show The Book of Boba Fett on December 29, following the story of the famous bounty hunter from the Star Wars series.

Epic Games has yet to reveal just how Boba Fett will be unlocked, but we can presume the Star Wars character will be added to the Item Shop. Many of its most popular characters like Master Chief, Kratos, and Jill Valentine were added to the Item Shop, meaning they had to be purchased with V-bucks. Typically, there are multiple bundles that coincide with character skins, featuring cosmetics like emotes, Back Bling, and loading screens.

If Boba Fett is added to the Item Shop rather than being unlocked via an in-game quest, you can expect the skin to cost around 1,500 V-bucks. It’s possible it will be slightly more or less, but typically, 1,500 is the sweet spot.

Remember, 1,000 V-bucks is equal to around $8, so you’ll need to shell out more than that if you don’t have enough saved up already. You can only purchase V-bucks in five different denominations, including:

  • 1,000: $8
  • 2,800: $20
  • 5,000: $32
  • 13,500: $80

Remember, you can earn V-bucks by leveling up the Battle Pass or by purchasing them with real money.

When you purchase cosmetic bundles from the Item Shop, you do “save” money rather than buying items individually, so if you want the additional items, this is definitely the way to go. Typically, the least expensive option is to buy the outfit, which often comes with an emote or something else.

One thing that isn’t clear is whether Fennec Shand — who is seen sitting next to Boba in the promotional art — will be available to unlock as well. It’s common for Fortnite to have multiple characters released alongside one another, such as Daryl and Michonne from The Walking Dead and Ripley and the Xenomorph from Alien, so it’s possible Fennec and Boba Fett will be available as part of a package.

We will update this article once we receive confirmation of how Boba Fett will be unlocked in Fortnite.

Warzone 2.0 Season 3 Reloaded has me optimistic about the shooter’s future
Characters from Warzone 2.0 in the ranked mode.

Since Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0's launch, Activision has slowly made improvements to the shooter, with each season being more fun than the last. It's been a slow burn, but with the launch of Season 3 Reloaded, Warzone 2.0 finally feels like it's in a decent spot. There's still much to improve upon, but given the sheer number of fixes and quality-of-life features that have been added with the latest season, I'm finally optimistic about the future of this game.
Ranked is surprisingly fun

The most notable addition to Season 3 Reloaded is Ranked, a mode that has been highly requested since the original Warzone. This features a robust ranking system that gives players a greater incentive to improve and perform well, while also adding a much more competitive feel. Since the original Warzone days, there has always been a lack of incentive to improve. Sure, winning a match is a rush, but after pouring hundreds of hours into the game, it's easy to get bored. With Warzone Ranked, climbing the ranks places you into different categories, from Bronze all the way to Iridescent and Top 250, while also yielding cosmetic rewards along the way. Each subsequent ranking places you into slightly more skilled lobbies, adding a bit more challenge as you climb.

How to find the Fifth Sage in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom
A sage grabbing ganon by the throat.

For as open and freeform as The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is, even allowing you to skip essentially every quest in the game and go straight to the final boss, you will be missing a ton by doing so. At the very least, most players will want to complete all the main quests before marching into the final encounter, which will take many hours. One quest is taking some adventurers a long time to complete, not due to its difficulty, but because they have no idea how to complete it.

The Fifth Sage quest is one of the most enigmatic in the entire game in what you're supposed to do to complete it. You're only given a single clue, and it's not a very helpful one at that.
