“Peace was never an option.”

Marvel and Fortnite's ongoing collaboration dates back to 2019, and it has not slowed down one bit. Characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) to Sony's Spider-Man Universe and everything in between have appeared. With the launch of Chapter 5 Season 3, Magneto of the X-Men is the latest Marvel character to join the Fortnite fun. This article explains how you can unlock the Magneto skin in Fortnite.

According to the Epic Games blog post, Wastelander Magneto is part of the Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3 Battle Pass, but he won't be unlockable until July. That likely means the X-Men character has his own Battle Pass tab, like Solid Snake and Korra in previous seasons. Although the wait isn't ideal, Epic's blog post states, "Unlock the Wastelander Magneto Outfit from Battle Pass Quests in July!"

The powerful mutant stands out in a Battle Pass that features a humanoid peapod and a character sporting the T-60 Power Armor from Fallout. Taking his form from the Marvel comics, Wastelander Magneto looks true-to-form in Fortnite, sporting a red outfit and signature helmet.

As mentioned, the Fortnite x Fallout collaboration brings a Nuka-Cola healing item and T-60 Power Armor Outfit to Season 3. That makes two crossovers in the Battle Pass, accompanying the previously mentioned "Peabody" Outfit and the other listed below:

  • The Machinist
  • Rust
  • Ringmaster Scarr
  • Brute Raider
  • Megalo Don

Beyond the Wastelander Magneto Outfit, it's unclear what other X-Men cosmetics will be available in the Fortnite Battle Pass. However, you can expect clever nods to the source material in the form of Back Blings, Wraps, Emotes, and more.
