Luckily for Fortnite players, the new Transformers collaboration is part of the Chapter 4 Season 3 Battle Pass. So, in order to get the Optimus Prime skin in Fortnite, players need to buy the Battle Pass and reach Level 100 to claim the outfit. The Fortnite Battle Pass costs 950 V-Bucks.

Keep in mind that it hasn’t been confirmed that Optimus Prime will be the Tier 100 outfit yet, but both Fortnite and Transformers teased that on Twitter.

To reach level 100, you’ll need to play Fortnite to earn XP and get 500 Battle Stars. We have a guide to help you level up fast, but if you don’t have the time, you can also buy levels with V-Bucks.
