Fortnite Aquaman skin: How to unlock Aquaman and the Arthur Curry variant by completing weekly challenges explained

Everything you need to know about unlocking Aquaman in Fortnite.

Aquaman is the special hero skin that can be earned in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 3.

Just like Deadpool in the previous season, the Aquaman skin is unlocked by completing a set of special Aquaman challenges, which will gradually unlock throughout the season. Once you've earned the Aquaman skin, you can even unlock the Arthur Curry variant.

Aquaman joins Jules and Kit in being one of the skins that you can unlock as part of the Fortnite Season 3 Battle Pass.

How to get Aquaman by completing weekly challenges in Fortnite


If you want to unlock the Aquaman skin in Fortnite, then you must first buy the Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 3 Battle Pass. Without this you won't be able to earn the majority of the Battle Pass rewards and that includes Aquaman!

With Battle Pass in hand you must now complete a series of weekly challenges to unlock the Aquaman skin. Each week a new challenge will unlock and, for completing it, you'll earn an Aquaman themed reward, until you can receive the ultimate prize.

Once you've earned the Aquaman skin, you can then unlock its Arthur Curry variant.

Don't worry if you're starting the Aquaman challenges late - the challenges will be available throughout the season for you to complete!

How to find the Aquaman weekly challenges in Fortnite

Unlike the other new Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 skins, like Kit and Jules, Aquaman is not unlocked by progressing through the Battle Pass.

Instead, you need to complete a set of weekly challenges, which will gradually unlock as we progress through Season 3 of Fortnite.

To find these challenges, simply click on the Map Challenges table on the Battle Pass menu.


This will allow you to view all the challenges that you can currently complete in Fortnite, including the Aquaman challenges. If these challenges are not the first set that you can see, simply scroll through the various challenge sets until you can find them.

Once you've found the list of Aquaman challenges, you'll be able to see which challenges are currently available you to complete, the reward you'll receive and when the other challenges will unlock.


You can also check your progress in unlocking the Aquaman skin by heading to the Style Challenges section of the Battle Pass menu.


Here you can check your progress on unlocking all the skins and variants that are available in Season 3, including Aquaman.

Fortnite Season 3 has arrived, introducing Battle Pass skins, including Kit, Jules and Eternal Knight and a Aquaman skin - the latest challenge of which is finding the Coral Cove Trident location. There's also been new features on the new map - including whirlpools and sharks - and the Coral Buddies secret quest.

How to unlock the Arthur Curry variant for Aquaman in Fortnite

Once you've unlocked the Aquaman skin in Fortnite, you can get to work on earning it's Arthur Curry variant. This is basically shirtless Aquaman, which is nice if that floats your boat.

It is important to remember, however, that we're still waiting for every Aquaman challenge to be released, so you will have to wait a couple of weeks to unlock both that skin and this variant.

To unlock the Arthur Curry variant you must 'Dive over the waterfall at Gorgeous Gorge while wearing the Aquaman outfit.'

To achieve this you must ensure that you're wearing the Aquaman outfit before joining a match, then head to the Gorgeous Gorge, which is north-west of Lazy Lake.

The location of Gorgeous Gorge.

Since you need to dive over the waterfall, it's a good idea to land on the mountainous area at the top of the waterfall. This will ensure that you don't waste time climbing to the top of the gorge, risking the chance of running into other players.

Once you're at the top, simply dive off the top of the waterfall and the variant will be yours.

Just remember - you need to have unlocked and be using the Aquaman skin for this to work!
