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.

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.

The best places to land in Fortnite (Chapter 5, Season 2)

Survival is key in Fortnite, and it all starts by picking the best starting location. Even if you're an expert player, your likelihood of coming out on top is greatly diminished if you start off on the wrong foot -- whether it be at a barren location with no loot or a hot drop that could lead to a swift death.

As part of Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2, there's no shortage of fantastic landing spots, but which one is best comes down to your skill and preference. With that in mind, here are the best places to land in Fortnite for veterans, beginners, and everyone in between.
The best places to land in Fortnite
Before jumping into the list of the best places to land in Fortnite, it's important to be aware of what makes a good landing spot. Sure, any place with decent loot might serve you well, but there's more to consider than that. Does a spot have a consistent chest/loot spawn? Are there guaranteed materials? Is it close to other places of interest (POI)s? Is it out of the way? Of course, loot is the most important aspect, but it does you no good to have a stacked loadout if you're stuck in the storm. These recommended landing spots all have some degree of consistency and fantastic loot. they also typically have some quirk that makes them effective depending on your playstyle.

Can you fix the Fortnite servers not responding error?

The last thing you want to see when loading up Fortnite for a match with your friends, especially when a big new update is dropping, is to be hit with an error. The worst of which might be the "Fortnite servers not responding" error due to how vague it is. Most people don't know what servers are, let alone what it means when they aren't responding, except that you can't play your game. The question then becomes if you have any power to solve this issue yourself or if you're forced to wait until Epic Games addresses it on its end.
Can you fix the servers not responding error in Fortnite?

The first thing to do when encountering this error in Fortnite is to go straight to the Epic Games Help website or X account (formerly Twitter). This will let you know if it is something on Epic Games' end that is the issue and also keep you updated on the status of when the servers are expected to be fixed. Servers can also be taken down for maintenance or in preparation for major updates, which will also be accounted for here. If this is the case, there's nothing to do but wait until they announce the servers are back up and running.

By expanding the Midgar section of Final Fantasy 7 into an entire game, Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth finally takes us beyond the walls into the world beyond. This much larger swath of land to explore begs the question of just how big this game will be. Between all the open-world tasks, sidequests, and minigames awaiting in the Gold Saucer, could this game really be a 100-hour experience as was claimed? What if you just tried to focus on the main story to see what has or hasn't changed? We've played through the entirety of Final Fantasy 7: Rebirth and can give you a good idea of just how long it will take you to reach this chapter's conclusion.
