Earlier this week, chapter 2 of Fortnite’s season 7 launched, trading its primal theme for an all-new alien invasion and adding some kooky new cosmetics for fans to unlock. One of the most exciting and admittedly most surprising is the addition of Rick & Morty’s Rick Sanchez.
Rick is on the final page of the chapter 2 season 7 battle pass which comes equipped with a fun new progress system that allows you to choose your own rewards. Instead of cosmetics being tied to certain levels, you’ll earn Battle Stars when you level up. As you earn season levels and claim rewards, more pages of the Battle Pass will unlock, offering new reward options to choose from.
There are two different ways that players can use this system to unlock Rick:
By reaching level 90 of their battle pass OR
By claiming 89 battle pass rewards to access page 10.
Once you’ve unlocked page 10, it costs just 9 Battle Stars to permanently unlock the Rick Sanchez skin. After that, you can also unlock Toxic Rick, an extra style option for Rick. This one is a little more taxing, however. You’ll need a hefty 20 Battle Stars to purchase Toxic Rick but before you can access him, you’ll need to have already acquired 105 additional rewards across the Battle Pass.
Alien forces have invaded the Island while Doctor Slone leads the Imagined Order against them.
Team up with Guggimon, Rick Sanchez, Kymera and more as the cosmic war rages.
Chapter 2 of Season 7 is live now, with a mysterious alien army invading the island. Under the direction of Doctor Sloan and equipped with brand new weapons such as the Kymera ray gun, players will face aliens and flying saucers alike to seal the fate of the island for better or worse.
It’s absolutely no secret that Fortnite is adding character after character from all tv, movie, gaming and sporting franchises. It’ll be super interesting to see who they add next as Fortnite shows absolutely no signs of stopping.
