How to unlock Shredder in Fortnite Cowabunga event

Fortnite players can unlock the Shredder skin by purchasing the Premium Reward Track of the TMNT Cowabunga event. This costs 1,000 V-Bucks, tasking players with completing Quests to collect Ooze, which helps them climb through the tiers.

There are also a host of free rewards available to those who don’t purchase the Premium Track, but Shredder can only be earned by upgrading. There’s also a Super Shredder Style as the final reward for completing the Event Pass.
