started its fifth season by adding two new “Star Wars” characters into the game — Din Djarin (the Mandalorian) and Grogu (Baby Yoda). But unlocking the best version of the character requires an extra step or two.

What’s going on?

Fortnite added the Mandalorian and Grorgu into the fifth season of Fortnite, as I wrote about for the Deseret News. The characters debuted after the video game’s main character, Jonesy, recruited them to help save the Fortnite island’s energy source.

How to unlock the Mandalorian

The Mandalorian can be unlocked by buying the Battle Pass, which will run you about 1,000 V-Bucks or $9.99 total, according to The Verge. The battle pass allows you to unlock new rewards throughout the season, too.

However, Mando doesn’t come with free v bucks generator his full Beskar armor, as that’s something you need to unlock throughout the season.

How to unlock Mandalorian’s Beskar armor

Fortnite added a bunch of “Beskar Quests” for gamers to play in order to snag the Beskar armor, according to PC Gamer. These challenges will be unlocked throughout the season, which will likely end sometime around March. So there’s not an immediate rush to finish the challenges.
