Fortnite The Foundation skin: How to unlock The Foundation explained

Can you smell what the Seven are cooking?

The Foundation is Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1's special skin, like The Cube Queen and Superman in past seasons.

The Foundation is voiced by Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and, alongside his skin, you'll be able to unlock a selection of Foundation themed cosmetic items, such as the Foundation's Mantle.

Arriving halfway through the season, thankfully there is just a single challenge needed to unlock the skin itself.

Note this particular challenge is no longer able to be completed. What's new? Chapter 3 Season 3 has arrived! New additions include Reality Seeds and Saplings and riding animals, along with the new Battle Pass, characters collection and map changes. It's a good idea to know how to get XP fast in Fortnite.

How to unlock The Foundation skin in Fortnite

You can visit all three easily if you know where the closest Seven Outpost is, as the above link and following video shows.

Once you have the skin, cosmetics are next - all unlocked with their own respective challenges.

We've also got a present list for Winterfest and Cozy Lodge and pizza slice locations. Meanwhile, learn how to get XP fast, earn the Victory Umbrella, find character locations and earn a Victory Crown.
