How To Upgrade The Mandalorian's Armor In Fortnite - All Beskar Quests In Fortnite Season 5

The Mandalorian arrives in Fortnite and features as the main Battle Pass skin and the first with upgradable aspects.

Fortnite Season 5 has had an interesting journey since it debuted towards the back end of 2020.

The Mandalorian skin is unique as its one of the rare crossover skins in this season (big thanks to Disney) but also has upgradable armour.

This armour, like in the show, can be upgraded and added to Mando's existing armour.

As you progress through your battle pass, you'll get more opportunities to add armour to the skin.

Here's how you can upgrade the Mandalorian's Armour.

Players will need to travel around the map to collect "Beskar Armor".

This is the same Mandalorian Armor Material you see in the show.

This will slowly start to upgrade Mando's armor and seems to have replaced the Awakening Challenges from last season.

These aren't obtainable right away, but rather the challenges are unlocked as you progress through your battle pass - yes you need to buy the battle pass to do this.

In total, there are 8 Armor plates to collect.

Read on to find out how to get these Beskar Armor plates.

Visit The Razor Crest

This is super easy to do. If you head to the south of Colossal Coliseum, you'll be able to find the Razor Crest in the sand.

Jump into a game of Team Rumble to complete this easy.

Complete A Bounty

Completing a Bounty is fairly straight forward, you'll need to find an NPC on the map.

These characters are easy enough to find in named locations as they have a speech bubble above their head; they also appear on the minimap when they're near by.

They will offer you many different tasks, but you want to select the one that asks you to eliminate a player.

This will unlock the Mandalorian's helmet.

Earn Weapon Specialist Accolades

You'll need to earn 5 Weapon Specialist Accolades.

These are rewarded for doing a specific amount of damage with a weapon.

The easiest weapons to do this with tend to be the Assault Rifles, Shotguns and SMGs.

The current one you'll likely encounter is "Complete 5 Bounties".

That means you'll need to do 5 Bounties.

Once done, you'll unlock the Mandalorian's Torso.

Defeat Ruckus

Ruckus is a boss located at Hydro 16 (east of Slurpy Swamp near the Dam).

He'll be found wandering inside the building wielding a Rocket Launcher and Legendary Assault Rifle.

He can quickly kill you and possesses a lot of health.

Our advice is to open up the building as much as possible by harvesting the walls and try to keep your distance.

Once done you'll unlock the Mandalorian's right-bracer.
