You might have heard the relatively under the radar news that Fortnite has collaborated with Naruto for some cosmetics again. As well as loads of stuff that you can buy from the Item Shop, Fortnite players can also earn free Naruto rewards by completing The Nindo Challenges.

With The Nindo, which is a lot like Impostors Trials, players are able to play Fortnite and complete milestones to unlock free Naruto rewards in-game, including a bevy of emoticons, a glider, and a loading screen. The event is on for a whopping two weeks in total, which is a lot longer than the first Nindo.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Nindo Challenges in Fortnite and how you can get your hands on some free Naruto rewards.


Fortnite X Naruto: The Nindo Sign-Up

Players have to head on over to and then sign in with their Epic Games account. The process should take just a second.

If you’re unsure of what your Epic Games account ID is, be sure to check your settings in-game on the platform of your choice to find your account name. If you don’t have an account, it takes a minute or two to set one up.


Fortnite X Naruto: The Nindo Challenges/Paths

Players must complete different paths in the Nindo to unlock different rewards. This is different to the last time, when players had to complete different milestones over different days. Here, players can complete them all whenever they like.

Completing one path will earn you a badge, with each character having a new path.

The Path of Itachi asks you to finish in the top 6 over 5 different matches for one badge.

The Path of Gaara gives you a badge each time you survive 24 storm circles.

The Path of Hinata, curiously enough, asks you to earn 20 fishes for a badge.

The Path of Orochimaru, meanwhile, give you a badge for every 18 eliminations you get.

Players must play normal Fortnite and Zero Build to earn badges; LTMs and Creative maps don’t count.

Each time you earn 1 badge from any of the paths, you will unlock a free emoticon for that specific character. So, for instance, if you complete the Gaara path, you will unlock the Gaara emoticon.

When you earn 5 badges for one path, meaning that you complete the same specific challenge 5 times, you will earn 20,000 XP, with 80,000 XP available in total.

The first time you complete a challenge ten times, meaning you unlock ten badges and complete the path, you will also unlock the Akatsuki wrap.

When you complete all of the paths, you will unlock the Manda Glider. This means you will have to get into the top 6 50 times, survive 240 storm circles, catch 200 fish, and manage 180 eliminations in total to unlock the ultimate reward in the Nindo this time out. You might want to try bot lobbies to get this all done.

Bear in mind that any of these rewards may come to the Item Shop at a later date.


When Does The Nindo Event End?

Players will have plenty of time to complete The Nindo. It takes place from June 21 to July 7, 2022, at 11:59 PM ET.
