Season 4 of Fortnite: Battle Royale went live on May 1st after weeks of massive hype and anticipation among the game’s massive player-base.
It seemed as if the entirety of the online gaming community was discussing the new season, just going to show how much of a gaming phenomenon Fortnite has become.
A major reason why the game has become so popular is that developer Epic Games have consistently added new content to the game, including outfit skins, pickaxes, back blings, and emotes.
The Season 4 Battle Pass includes two brand new skins that have caught players’ attention: the Carbide (unlocked level 1) and the Omega (unlocked level 100)
The reason these skins are in the spotlight is because, for the first time in Fortnite, players can upgrade skins as they progress in the game.
Helmets and various pieces of armor for both the Carbide and the Omega can be unlocked with each 10 levels that players rank up in Fortnite, meaning that the fully completed version for both skins cannot actually be purchased but rather must be earned by reaching level 80.
