The Magneto Outfit will be released on July 2, 2024. It’s this season’s bonus skin and will only be available to owners of the Premium Battle Pass. In addition to owning the Battle Pass, you will need to complete a series of quests in order to unlock Magneto. There will likely be other Magneto-themed cosmetic items for you to add to your locker through these quests.

Fortnite’s Magneto Outfits is actually called “Wasteland Magneto” to fit in with the post-apocalyptic theme of Chapter 5 Season 3. His suit is covered in dirt, and he’s wearing additional leather straps and metallic pieces.
