Fortnite is always trying to bring back its old characters but in new unique ways. Their newest addition, the Renegade Runner, is a new and improved version of the classic Renegade Raider. So how exactly does a player unlock the Renegade Runner in Fortnite? Well, it is simple... sort of.

Here is a guide to unlocking Fortnite's new Renegade Runner skin.

Play in the Renegade Runner Cup and unlock the brand-new skin

Fans of competitive will be pleased to know that unlocking the new Renegade Runner skin will take a little bit of competition. Fortnite has announced a new tournament, where players can compete to earn the Renegade Runner skin.

Renegade Runner Cup Date:

But what if you are a Zero Build Fortnite player? Do not worry; this tournament is for everyone.

Fortnite decided to include two separate tournaments that run simultaneously. One will be a regular Battle Royale and the other a Zero Build tournament. Pick your poison, and do your best on the battlefield.

Scoring at least eight points in the tournament will also grant you the Starry Raider Emoticon.
