A brand new skin in Fortnite has arrived alongside the Season 7 Week 9 Challenges.  To unlock the Prisoner Skin in Fortnite you’re going to need to complete 60 weekly challenges.  However, unlocking the Prisoner Skin will require that you complete challenges in different phases.

You’ll notice that you will have access to the Prisoner Skin, but that the prisoner will have a lock on his face.  This quest is to try and get that lock off of the Prisoner’s face that’s been locked away in the dungeon of Polar Peak.

What we know is that there are going to be four different stages to the Prisoner.  The first is his starting look.  You’ll get the first key and move to phase two.  A second key will bring you to phase three.  And then a third key should bring you to the final form.

This guide will explain how to unlock all four phases of the Prisoner Skin.

The first thing you’re going to need to do to start down the path of unlocking the Prisoner Skin in Fortnite is to find the First Prisoner Key.  This first key Prisoner Key is located at Polar Peak.  At this point in the season you should be pretty familiar with where Polar Peak is.

If not, just head over to the Polar Peak area and head to the tall tower in northern-most part of the area.

Your best best is going to be to land on top of the tall structure and then just take the stairs down until you get to the room seen in the image above.  Once you’re here the Prisoner Key will be on the table show in the image.  You will need to be wearing the prisoner skin to actually get the key to spawn.

Once you’ve completed this first step to unlocking the Prisoner Skin you’re going to need to wait until the next key pops up and you’ll find that once it does right here.

Second Prisoner Key Location Fortnite

The second Prisoner Key in Fortnite is going to be located at the campfire on the big hill in the desert area.  The exact location for this is in the I7 quadrant.  The loading screen for this week gives us the exact location.  This big mound in the desert will now have a campfire there.  If you drop there while wearing the Prisoner skin you will be able to light this campfire and unlock the third stage of the Prisoner skin in Fortnite.

If you’re heading to this location anytime soon, be prepared to encounter other players trying to light the campfire.  Only one person can do it per match, so it might take a couple of tries to do it.

Third Prisoner Key Location

The third prisoner key location in Fortnite is going to be located at the circle of lanterns on the hill north of the Wailing Woods.  Heading to the location in the image above, you will find that the lanterns will light when you approach this area with the Prisoner Skin equipped.  At this point you will have removed all of the stuff blocking the Prisoner skin and you will have completed the Prisoner Skin unlock quest.
