Neymar Jr

The football legend, Neymar Jr, is the secret skin of Season 6 and will be available to unlock this week.


His new skin will also go live on Tuesday, April 27th alongside the 16.30 update.


@ESFortniteBR has revealed what the Neymar Jr skin will look like, including the extra styles and other cosmetics such as pickaxe and glider.

In this image, we can see that Neymar Jr will come with two styles, as well as two armoured versions too.

We're not sure if they will separate skins to the main Neymar Jr skin, much like Travis Scott and the Astro Jack skin.

There also appears to be two pickaxes, a glider with two styles, a golden football emote, and a loading screen too.



Ahead of the Neymar Jr skin release, an official reveal trailer was released to show off the new skin and styles.

Check out the trailer below.
