If you're wondering how to get the Optimus Prime Fortnite skin, you're probably looking forward to finishing the latest battle pass. Epic Games has finally confirmed that the Transformers character will headline Chapter 4 Season 3, proving the latest battle pass rumours to be correct.

In this guide, we go over everything we know so far about the Optimus Prime Fortnite skin. That includes when we expected it to arrive in the game, and how to earn Optimus Prime.

How to get the Optimus Prime Fortnite skin

To get the Optimus Prime Fortnite skin, you'll need to reach level 100 of the Chapter 4 Season 3 battle pass.

Yes, to get Optimus Prime, you'll need to buy the traditional 100-level Battle Pass that comes out at the start of the season. Then, you'll need to level it up and spend your battle stars on rewards, up until you reach the final prize of them all: the Optimus Prime skin.

As you'd expect, this will take an awful lot of grinding. You'll have to get to level 100 of regular seasonal progression to get enough currency to purchase the final Optimus Prime skin, which is bound to take you a good few months.

However, there's also a chance that we'll see a few extra Optimus Prime skins landing in the seasonal rewards that go beyond the battle pass. These are usually variants on skins included in the regular 100-tier battle pass, with previous variants of Spider-Man and the Doom Slayer arriving. Expect the same with Optimus Prime!

When is the Optimus Prime skin coming to Fortnite?

The current season of Fortnite ends on June 9, so we anticipate the next season launching immediately after. Since Optimus Prime arrives as a baked-in part of the battle pass, the skin will technically be available as soon as the Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 3 release time countdown hits zero. Of course, it'll then take a while to unlock it!
