How do you get the Omega Knight skin in 'Fortnite'?

One of the most legendary skins in the history of Fortnite is the original Omega skin. Released back during Chapter 1, Season 4 of the game, it was only given to players at the time who had the Battle Pass and made it all the way to Tier 100 that season. After it concluded, Epic Games never made Omega available to players again, as they do with all of their tier 100 skins.

Although Epic Games won't be re-releasing the Omega skin in its exact Chapter One specs again, players who weren't able to attain it back in the game's early days are in for a stroke of luck as Omega Knight is simply its bigger, badder cousin. Indeed, data miners discovered that creators were planning to release the Omega Knight skin into the Fortnite item shop on May 3, 2022.

The new skin takes the original Omega template and amps it up a notch. The originally slimmer character is retrofitted with big bulky armor and a pretty menacing appearance. To acquire the new skin, players won't have to take on any daunting tasks within the game; they'll simply have to purchase some V-Bucks.

The Omega Knight skin is rumored to be available in the Fortnite item shop soon, and the cost is unknown as of the time of writing. The skin will reportedly include a Level-up Quest Pack, per Dot E Sports. Players will be able to use that Level-up Quest Pack to upgrade the Omega Knight skin, just as players were able to do with the original Omega skin.

On top of that, it has been reported that there will be 21 quests players can undertake to upgrade the skin once its purchased. When Omega Knight is fully upgraded, its armor will seemingly have a golden hue.
