How to get The Herald skin in Fortnite and every Herald challenge listed

The Herald has arrived!

The Herald is the special skin for Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 4 - just like how Indiana Jones and Prowler were for past seasons.

The mysterious Herald was hinted at during the trailer for Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 - where they were seen spying on the island - but now they’ve arrived and are already causing trouble. The question, however, is what or who are they heralding?

You can now unlock The Herald skin as part of the Battle Pass, along with a collection of The Herald themed cosemtic items, by completing Herald challenges in Fortnite.

Note this particular challenge is no longer able to be completed. What's new? Chapter 4 Season 2 has arrived! New additions include the Grind Rails and Kinetic Blades, along with the new Battle Pass, character collection and Eren Jaeger skin. It's a good idea to know how to get XP fast in Fortnite.
