In order to steal players’ skins in Fortnite, you must unlock the Fortnite Mystique Skin and use its built-in Shapeshifter emote. To unlock Mystique in Fortnite, you’ll need to hit Tier 80 in the Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 4 Battle Pass. Then, simply equip the Fortnite Mystique Skin and perform the Shapeshifter emote after eliminating a player.

You must eliminate a player before you’re able to temporarily steal their skin and disguise yourself as them. Mystique’s shapeshifted form only lasts for a short period before wearing off, but you can simply perform the emote again to reapply the disguise. Just bring up the emote wheel and then chose the Fortnite Shapeshifter emote to do so.

As you can tell, it’s pretty dang cool! Whether you’re a fan of the X-Men villain or not, Epic Games did a great job of integrating this Marvel character’s unique powers into Fortnite.
