If you want to drop into the battle royale with style, then completing the Fortnite Build-a-brella challenges will let you construct an umbrella of your own unique design, so you can show off your artistic flair. We were previously able to put together an outfit for our secret agent Maya, but this is the first time we've been able to make a personalised glider. There are nearly 8,000 different combinations of the various parts available, and if you add to that the option to customise the colour of each item then the possibilities for your Fortnite glider are limitless. Read on, and we'll show you how to unlock all of custom Fortnite umbrella options, as well as explaining how to complete each of the Fortnite Build-a-brella challenges.

To unlock different items to attach to your custom Fortnite Build-a-brella, you'll need to reach certain season levels through the battle pass. Keep racking up that XP by completing other challenges, filling out your punch cards, and generally by doing well in matches. The attachments you'll unlock for your custom Fortnite umbrella are as follows:

  • Season Level 15 - Topper
  • Season Level 35 - Shaft
  • Season Level 55 - Canopy
  • Season Level 75 - Bottom Cap
  • Season Level 95 - Trail Effects Color

  • Outlast opponents in Solos, Duos, or Squads (500)

If you're good at the game then this should come to you reasonably quickly, but even if you don't often get near the final storm circles you can greatly improve the number of opponents you outlast by sticking to the edges of the active play area and hiding out of sight. Make sure you're playing Solos, Duos, or Squads for your progress to count.
