Fortnite-Mandalorian-Beskar-Challenge

The Mandalorian may be unlocked at level one of the Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5 Battle Pass, but you don’t get access to everything from the start. Baby Yoda is not unlocked until much later, and there are several armor pieces to unlock for The Mandalorian. To upgrade The Mandalorian’s armor, you must complete the Beskar quest, a multi-step mission that contains several challenges. Not all of these have been discovered yet, but you can get started as soon as you buy the Battle Pass. Here’s how to complete the Beskar quest and upgrade The Mandalorian’s armor in Fortnite.

All Mandalorian Beskar Quest Steps

Completing a part of the Beskar quest will unlock a new piece of armor for The Mandalorian. Once you’ve unlocked an armor piece, you can equip it in your Locker by editing The Mandalorian’s style. There are eight armor pieces in total to collect. These are all the Beskar quest steps.

  1. Visit the Razor Crest
  2. Find Beskar Steel Deep in the Belly of the Shark
  3. Find Beskar Steel Where the Earth Meets the Sky
  4. Complete a Bounty
  5. Earn Weapon Specialist Accolades
  6. Complete a Legendary Quest
  7. Defeat Ruckus
  8. Collect 500 Gold Bars

These challenges are dished out as you progress through the Battle Pass, unlocking more as you gain more levels. There are walkthroughs for each quest step below, or you can click the links in the list above to read our dedicated guides for each challenge.

1. Visit the Razor Crest

The Razor Crest can be found on the eastern edge of the desert surrounding the Zero Point in the center of the new map. If you’ve discovered the new named locations already, then it’s south of Colossal Coliseum. If most of your map is still uncovered, however, just head to the area marked on the map below.

To complete the challenge, all you have to do is approach the ship. Be careful, as several players will be swarming the area attempting to complete the challenge for themselves. The Mandalorian himself also patrols the crash site and will shoot you on sight with his powerful mythic weapon, so be prepared for a fight if you get spotted. Completing this challenge unlocks the Beskar style for The Mandalorian’s right shoulder.

2. Find Beskar Steel Deep in the Belly of the Shark

This Beskar steel ingot can be found inside The Shark, which is a location found in the far northwest corner of the map. It’s a cave that’s shaped like a giant stone shark, and you’ll recognize it if you’ve been playing for a while. If you’re having trouble finding it, just head to the location marked on the map below.

Once you arrive, head inside the mouth of the shark. Build stairs to reach the second floor and you should see a metal vault door that’s slightly open. Inside, you’ll find the Beskar steel ingot sitting on a shelf in the back. Picking up this ingot unlocks the Beskar style for The Mandalorian’s left thigh.

3. Find Beskar Steel Where the Earth Meets the Sky

This Beskar steel ingot can be found in the mountain range located in the southeastern corner of the map. It’s hidden on the tallest mountain of them all, which is just south of Catty Corner. Just head to the location marked on the map below if you’re having trouble finding it.

Once you arrive, climb to the tallest peak. At the summit, there will be a large chest sitting at the base of a flag. The chest has an ID scanner, but it will open if you’re wearing The Mandalorian skin. The Beskar steel ingot can be found inside alongside some useful weapons and gear. Collecting this ingot will unlock the Beskar style for The Mandalorian’s left bracer.

4. Complete a Bounty

To complete a bounty, you must first find an NPC somewhere on the map. These characters are marked with speech bubbles on the minimap when you get close to them, and you can usually find them hanging out near POIs and named locations.

Once you speak to them, they will have an array of missions for you to accept. Choose the one that tells you to eliminate another player. Once that player is eliminated, either by your hand or someone else’s, the bounty will be completed. Finishing this quest unlocks the Beskar style for The Mandalorian’s helmet.

5. Earn Weapon Specialist Accolades

To complete this challenge, you need to earn 5 Weapon Specialist Accolades. They don’t have to be all during one match, so you don’t need to worry if you struggle to get multiple kills in a single game. You can also do this in Team Rumble, which we highly recommend due to the respawns and number of players condensed into one area.

Fortnite-Chapter-2-Season-5-Bars

You earn a Weapon Specialist Accolade by doing a specific amount of damage with a weapon. For Shotguns and Assault Rifles, you need to do 250 damage, but you only need to do 150 with the others. Just earn five of these accolades to complete the quest. Finishing this quest unlocks the Beskar style for The Mandalorian’s left shoulder.

6. Complete a Legendary Quest

For this challenge, you have to complete a legendary quest. These quests are orange and appear at the top of your quest list. For the first week of Season 5, the legendary quest is “Complete 5 bounties,” and these quests cycle out every week. Just complete whichever legendary quest is availble for any given week and you’ll complete this challenge. Finishing this challenge will unlock the Beskar style for The Mandalorian’s torso.

7. Defeat Ruckus

To complete this challenge, you must defeat a boss called Ruckus. Ruckus is located around Hydro 16, which is east of Slurpy Swamp near the dam. He can be found wandering around inside the building.

He has a rocket launcher and a legendary assault rifle, so he can easily kill you if you’re not prepared. Like the other NPCs scattered throughout the map, he also has a ton of health and shields, so bring a squad with you. Keep an eye out for other players as well, because several people will be trying to take the kill for themselves to complete their challenge. Finishing this challenge will unlock the Beskar style for The Mandalorian’s right arm.

8. Collect 500 Gold Bars

For this challenge, all you have to do is collect 500 Gold Bars. That’s a lot of Bars, but you aren’t on a strict timer. You can take as long as you need. Gold Bars can be obtained by opening chests, completing bounties, and eliminating opponenets. Speaking to NPCs and picking up bounties and quests is the fastest way to earn Gold Bars. Finishing this challenge will unlock the Beskar style for The Mandalorian’s right thigh.
