The Trespassers have been a consistent part of Fortnite now since the beginning of Season 7 – Invasion. And who wouldn’t want to become an alien invader of their own? Well, it turns out that you actually can with the Trespasser Elite skin. Even though Epic has made little to no mention of this skin, it is very real and very cool. “How do I unlock the Trespasser Elite skin in Fortnite,” I can hear you ask, “Is there a code I can input to become the alien of my dreams?” or maybe even “Is it free?” In the end, the answer is, well, kind of, but not really. Here’s how to get the Trespasser Elite skin in Fortnite.
How to Get the Trespasser Elite Skin in Fortnite
Until recently, the Trespasser Elite skin in Fortnite was unlocked through a partnership with streaming toolset provider StreamElements. After going to their website and logging in with your YouTube account you could access a ‘partnerships’ section that would allow you to unlock a code for the Trespasser Elite skin. You just needed to stream 10 hours of Fortnite with a downloadable overlay activated and 5+ concurrent viewers watching. Recently, this section of their site closed, stating “Applications are currently closed, and will begin accepting applications again at a later date. Thank you.” What this means and the timeframe that StreamElements are describing is currently a mystery.
This begs the question – could you purchase the Fortnite Trespasser Elite code from someone who hasn’t used theirs yet? Ultimately, the answer is yes, but realistically it’s not likely to happen for most people and Epic is actively opposed to players selling skin codes so you’d likely be under some scrutiny if you decided to.
On Sep 4, YouTuber iFireMonkey stated that he believed the Trespasser Elite skin was going to be headed to the Item Shop in the future and that it was just being given to streamers to build hype for the Operation: Sky Fire live event. While this may be true, the Trespasser Elite skin has yet to be seen in the item shop as of yet and until then the only way to unlock it would be to find yourself a code. Hopefully Epic will add the skin to the Item Shop shortly.
For those confused; as far as I'm aware the Trespasser Elite outfit WILL be in the Item Shop in the future.
The only reason content creators such as myself are getting it early is just to generate hype/promote the Operation: Sky Fire live event. pic.twitter.com/Xkjeq6yELW
