Fortnite Drift is an outfit with progressive unlocks over the course of Season 5.
Once it has been unlocked by progressing through the Battle Pass, you can unlock additional styles of the outfits with XP. Like Ragnarok and Road Trip, this is essentially end game stuff, and gives you a long term goal beyond the usual roster of Challenges.
The good news is that there is no longer a rush to complete them this season - their progress will carry through to Season 5 and beyond, once they have been unlocked.

Fortnite Drift explained
Drift - much like Ragnarok - is an outfit unlocked through the Season 5 Battle Pass. Once it has been purchased, it will unlock straight away for you to use.
Once it is unlocked, there are more challenges to complete to unlock every style. Unlike Birthday or Weekly Challenges, these aren't tied to specific in-game activities, but simply by accumulating XP.
Again - a welcome change this season is that you don't need to get all stages unlocked by the end of the season, and will persist into Season 6 (and we assume beyond).
How to unlock all Fortnite Drift styles
To unlock each stage, you have to earn XP. You do this by completing matches and Challenges - our Fortnite XP page explains this in further detail, but in short, play well and concentrating on Challenges will see you zip through them faster.
Each stage of the respective costumes will then unlock at the following points:
|Style 3 and Mask||50000||30|
|Style 4 and Pickaxe||100000||41|
Thanks to speedyproYT on reddit for the above level calculations. Note we have rounded each one up, so will unlock the style by the time you reach the level listed.
Season 8 and The Sideways have arrived in Fortnite. You can now start collecting the Season 8 Battle Pass skins, using the Sideways weapons, partaking in Sideways encounters, investigate the map changes and obtain the new Victory Umbrella! Make a start on the Season 8 questlines, with the IO Heist and finding IO guards and mending locations for Baba Yaga. You can also start collecting colour bottles for Tonna Fish and completing the new character collection.

So what exactly to you get when you unlock all Drift styles? Here's each stage, one by one:
And finally, the Drift Pickaxe up close, unlocked alongside the fourth style:
Once again - there's no rush unlocking these as you can do so past the end of the season. But of course, bragging rights are at stake, and if you are particularly keen at getting your hands on a particular stage, the above tells you what level to aim for.
