How to unlock Brainiac skin in Fortnite Chapter 2

At long last, the Fortnite Brainiac skin looks as if it is returning. Better yet, it appears as it is a brand-new Brainiac skin Fortnite style option. Read on through this guide to get a good look at the new Brainiac Skin variant coming to Fortnite following on from the game’s latest update. We’ll let you in on what it looks like and how to unlock Brainiac skin in Chapter 2. You will want to get your hands on the Brainiac (Ghoul Trooper) skin and we’re your best bet for how.

What is the Fortnite Brainiac (Ghoul Trooper) Skin?

As stated above, a new Brainiac stye option looks as though it is coming to Fortnite soon. The Brainiac (Ghoul Trooper) variant has been datamined by Twitter user PXLPAT. As you can see in the image above, it gives the standard Brainiac skin a ghoulish new look.

ALSO: Tfue says that Fortnite Chapter 2 ‘feels like the worst ever’

Appearing on the right of the image above, the Ghoul Trooper Brainiac skin variant is a different shade of green from the original, with an added dog tag, pink hair, and other details. The design features neat lines that make it look as though it could have been lifted from a comic book, too. How do you unlock the Brainiac skin in Fortnite Chapter 2 though?

Unfortunately, we don’t know for sure how you will be able to unlock the Brainiac Fortnite skin in Chapter 2. We can hazard a guess, however, that you will be able to purchase the Brainiac Ghoul Trooper style option skin from the Item Shop. Given that it’s likely a Halloween-themed skin (it has to be, right?), we’d imagine that the Ghoul Trooper Brainiac skin will be available in the Item Shop rotation soon. Keep checking the Item Shop for the next week or so and it should, hopefully, turn up.

You may be able to unlock the new Brainiac skin through completing challenges, too. We’ve had plenty of skins made available through their own challenges, anyway. We’d wager that the Brainiac Ghoul Trooper skin will be available for purchase from the Item Shop, however.
