How to get Power Armor in Fortnite

As soon as Fortnite Chapter 5, Season 3 was revealed to have a crossover with the Fallout franchise, we all knew it had to include the Power Armor. Now that the season is out, we can confirm that there are not just one, but three different versions of the iconic metal suit to wear, but it may not be quite what you hoped.

Instead of being something you can find and use on the map to become an unstoppable killing machine in like the source material, the Power Armor you can get in Fortnite is just a set of skins. Even if it is just a skin, it looks intimidating, so why not add it to your collection? Here’s what it takes to unlock each version.

How to get the Power Armor skin in Fortnite

Because the sets of Power Armor are skins, they need to be unlocked through the battle pass and can’t be purchased as of now. The three versions are different-colored variants of the T-60 Power Armor and unlock at different tiers. Here’s what level you need to grind to in order to get them all.

  • T-60 Power Armor: The default gray Power Armor is the first version you can unlock by reaching level 54 and earning nine battle stars on the battle pass.
  • Hot Rod T-60 Power Armor: This flaming-red version of the armor also requires nine battle stars and grinding up to level 62.
  • Black Knight T-60 Power Armor: The black and bloody version with glowing red eyes is the most unique, but also the hardest to get. You need to first earn all other battle pass rewards, earn 20 battle stars, and claim all the bonus rewards on page one to unlock it.

Once you've done and seen everything there is in the base Fallout 4 game, it's time to venture out beyond the Commonwealth. The Far Harbor DLC was the first to add an entirely new zone to the game, but it doesn't stick it onto the existing map. It doesn't take long to get yourself to the new island once you know the proper steps, but you need to do a few specific things in the game before it will be an option, and the game won't tell you what those requirements are. This is all you need to know about how to start the Far Harbor DLC in Fallout 4.

How to get XCoins in XDefiant

Every game with an in-game shop like XDefiant also needs its own form of currency. Typically, there's more than one to make things even more complicated. XCoins are the name for Ubisoft's premium currency needed to buy most of the cosmetics, such as skins and animations. Some games allow you to earn small amounts of the premium currency for free, while others only sell it to you in exchange for real cash. You don't have to pay to start playing, but will you need to start spending money once you do? Let's dig in and find the answer.
How to get XCoins
XCoins can only be earned in two ways in XDefiant. The first is to simply purchase them with real money. You can buy bundles of the premium currency in the Store tab of the menu by selecting Get More XCoins. These are the bundles currently available:

500 XCoins: $5
1,000 XCoins: $10
2,100 XCoins: $20
5,750 XCoins: $50
12,000 XCoins: $100
