The Ruin skin is just the latest of the Discovery skins that players will be able to unlock in Fortnite. Revealed via a tweet from the Fortnite Twitter, earlier today, the new skin appears to be quite menacing, and is something fans will want to get their hands on before Season 8 ends.

Following through with the changes they made in the previous season, players looking to unlock the Ruin skin and add it to their collection will NOT need to complete all of the weekly challenges presented to them. Instead, they’ll only need to complete 55 of the challenges, which should make it much easier for more casual players to unlock the skin. If you have been completing all of the challenges each week, then you should be able to unlock the skin somewhere in week 8, when more challenges drop.
