This season of Fortnite, as you probably know, is very Marvel heavy but from this season we get to portray some of our favourites from the Marvel Universe. In this guide, we’re going to show you how to get through Fortnite Mystique Awakening Challenges to unlock additional content for the skin.
From the storyline to the battle pass itself to literally every single thing in between Marvel has completely taken over Fortnite.
Previously, we’ve gotten Marvel skins through a smaller event featuring Thanos and the original Avengers skins. This time the entire island has gotten a Marvel-themed makeover and every aspect of the island is littered with Marvel memorabilia from weapons and superpowers to AI enemies.
Use a phone booth as Mystique
Upon reaching level 86, players unlock Awakening Challenges for Mystique. The first challenge you’ll begin with for the awakening challenge: Use a phone booth as Mystique.
The phone booths have been in Fortnite for a few seasons now, starting with things such as Deadpool as a secret skin to Entering a phone booth will alter the appearance of your skin mid-game to the confusion of both players and AI enemies such as henchmen.
As well as changing what you look like, other benefits include being able to open certain doors and locked loot around the map.
This challenge is fairly easy, as you will unlock it once you enter a phone booth as shown below.
You can find a phone booth at Doom’s Domain near the soccer field if you want the most accessible location. They are also spread out throughout the map at locations such as Catty Corner.
Once you jump out of the phone booth you’ll see you’ve become a Doom Henchman.
Deal damage with different rarity pistols as Mystique
Next part of the Mystique Awakening Challenges you’ll have to complete: Deal damage with different rarity pistols as Mystique.
You can find pistols around named locations on the island as well as within chests and from eliminating enemies. There are five rarities of the pistol: common, uncommon, rare, epic and legendary. It should also be noted this damage can be done to not just players but also sharks, Stark robots and Heroes you encounter on the map.
Luckily, you will only need to damage enemies with any 3 of the rarities mentioned above.
Emote after eliminating an enemy
Finally, the next and last part of the challenge: Emote after eliminating an enemy.
As you can see below, this is incredibly simple and I’m sure you’ve done an emote of some kind before.
All you need to do, after eliminating an enemy, is press down on the D-pad to open your emote wheel and select the emote you wish to use. If you’re playing on PC, press B to open the emote wheel and then from there you can select your emote of choice.
So by eliminating an enemy and then using the emote wheel immediately after, you will see you can use the Shapeshifter built-in emote. This will transform Mystique into the skin the opponent you eliminated was wearing, regardless of if you own the skin yourself or not! This is very cool to try out skins you’ve never acquired yourself!
