Neymar Jr. is a Brazilian professional soccer player, and his likeness is being used in Fortnite for season 6. Epic teased the athlete’s inclusion for this season, but if you jumped into the menus or the Item Shop, his outfit was nowhere to be found.

Neymar Jr. Fortnite Unlocks

On April 27, the Neymar Jr. challenges became available in Fortnite. Of course, players looking to play as their favorite soccer star will have to purchase the season 6, chapter 2 battle pass.

There are six rewards associated with Neymar Jr. We’ve listed them below along with their unlock requirements.

  • The Soccer Ball (rare toy emote): Talk to any soccer player NPC
  • 10 Banner Icon: Talk to any soccer player NPC
  • The Matador (loading screen): Complete three quests from island soccer players
  • Neymar Jr. Skin: Complete five quests from island soccer players
  • Joia Trophy (Back Bling): Drop kick the Soccer Ball toy 500 meters as Neymar Jr.
  • Jaguar Strike Pickaxe: Score a goal with the Soccer Ball toy as Neymar Jr.
  • Primal Skin Transformation: Eliminate three opponents as Neymar Jr.

There are soccer players located all over the map in Fortnite season 6. Players can land at Holly Hedges, Dirty Docks, or Pleasant Park to find soccer players roaming around on soccer fields. Thankfully, it doesn’t matter which soccer player you accept a quest from; all that matters is that you complete it. Of course, some of these quests are easier said than done. Lucky players may be able to complete all of Neymar Jr.’s challenges in one impressive game — others will have to sink some time into Fortnite.

As the current king of crossovers, Fortnite has fans excited to see who else joins the fight as season 6 rolls on.

Warzone 2.0’s ranked mode fixes my biggest battle royale pet peeve
Characters from Warzone 2.0 in the ranked mode.

As part of the Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 Season 3 Reloaded update, Activision finally added a long-awaited Ranked mode. While the mode plays almost exactly like standard battle royale on Al Mazrah, it has a number of minor differences that give it an edge. Though there's one feature in particular that stands out, as it fixes one of my biggest pet peeves in the battle royale genre.

In Ranked, players are discouraged from quitting partway through a match, giving squads a better chance of coming out on top. Placement is key in the mode, and you aren't going to place high if your squad leaves you partway through. To support that idea, players are heavily penalized for quitting a match early. The whole premise of the mode is to climb the ranks, so it's not worth losing Skill Rating (SR) points for quitting before the match is over.

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.
