Fortnite Victory Umbrellas are unlockable gliders that show you've accomplished perhaps the most meaningful thing you can do in Fortnite - win a match.
Each season features its own new Victory Umbrella, and provided you win a match in Solos, Duos or Squads during that Season, it's yours to keep.
It's usual for not only the glider reward to be an Umbrella, but also themed around the season in question - Season 6's horror theme was a spider's web, while Season 7's snow map was a snowman, for example.
Unlike most other cosmetics in the game, Victory Umbrellas cannot be bought - they have to be earned!

How to unlock Fortnite Victory Umbrellas
Unlocking the current Fortnite Season Victory Umbrella is a simple case of earning a Victory Royale - hence the name.
Specifically, you'll want to win a match in one of Fortnite's core Battle Royale modes - Solo, Duos or Squads.
Though some select LTMs (Limited Time Modes) allow you to also get your hands on it by winning, by and large you need to play the core modes to earn that seasons Victory Umbrella.
In short, being on the winning side in Team Rumble isn't going to do it!
