Fortnite will soon be getting its own Predator skin.
Today, as first pointed out Eurogamer, Update 15.20 for Fortnite introduced the first special Predator-themed challenge, which can be accessed through the ‘Mysterious Rewards’ tab in the game’s Battle Pass menu. The Jungle Hunter Quests, as they are named for the character, have yet to be unlocked, but it looks like the debut mission will unlock a special Predator-themed spray.
However, the Preda tor skin itself won’t be coming to Fortnite for a few weeks just yet. As noted by dedicated Fortnite reporter / leaker ShiinaBR, just below, the Predator skin will be linked to these ongoing Jungle Hunter Quests, and there will be two variants of the skin available when it finally arrives. Additionally, there will be an NPC related to the Predator in a certain part of the Fortnite map, although we don’t know if it could be the Predator himself (similar to how The Mandalorian appeared on the Fortnite map as an enemy NPC).
It seems like the Predator skin will be tied to an event with many challenges & there’s also a “Ragnarok” book mentioned in the files, which is 99% also related to this.

At th is time, we do not yet know if the Predator skin will be exclusive to those who own the current Fortnite Battle Pass. It seems that the initial Jungle Hunter Quest that was just introduced is exclusive to owners of the Battle Pass, so it stands to reason that the Predator skin is also exclusive.
This is just the latest in a very long line of crossover skins in Fortnite. So far this season, Kratos from God of War, Master Chief from Halo, and Daryl and Michonne from The Walking Dead have joined the ranks of Epic’s game thus far during this current season as guest skins that have been available for purchase for a limited time in the in-game item store.
