After much anticipation since this season started, Brazilian football star Neymar Jr is officially in Fortnite. Epic teased the collaboration last month and finally delivered on their promise. Players can now outfit with the new set’s cosmetics. Refer to our guide, where we explain all of the challenges and what’s at stake.
New Exotic Unstable Bow & Mythic Explosive Bow
Like the Grappler Bow from update v16.20, Epic unearthed two new Bows for players to enjoy. These variants, called Exotic Unstable Bow and Mythic Explosive Bow, are unique additions. Players who are looking to acquire the former need to find the Raven NPC located near Fort Crumpet. As for the Mythic Explosive Bow, it’s in possession of Raz located at The Spire. Refer to our guides on how to gather the Unstable Bow and Explosive Bow.

As mentioned earlier, Raz is now a boss character in The Spire. Players can now defeat Raz and collect the Spire to unlock his boss character style. There are two other “Spire” challenges that you can see above, courtesy of iFireMonkey.
Easier Crafting & Item Inspection
