This pack seems to be focused on stealth as Epic has used the tagline “some players like to stay in the shadows” for this pack. Players must complete a series of challenges to unlock each cosmetic. For instance, they must outlast 500 opponents to unlock the Sky Shadow glider.

Next, they can redeem the Shadow Slicer Pickaxe upon dealing 1,000 damage to opponents. After playing five games with friends you will unlock the Sky Shadow Glider. Last, once all the aforementioned challenges are complete, you will obtain the Ruby Shadow skin.

As of now, this pack is only redeemable on the PC version of the game. Players can also download this content on the PC version of the game and carry it over to other platforms. Thus, it seems like to redeem it, one must have installed the PC version of Fortnite.

However, YouTuber Tabour Hill has found a workaround for this system. According to his video, he urges fans to sign into their Fortnite account of choice through the link he has provided. This link essentially synchronizes a PlayStation Network or Xbox Live account with a player’s Epic Games account. Following this, the pack should be visible on the console store as well.
