How to get the Golden Umbrella
A brief guide on unlocking the most essential item in your Fortnite Battle Royale collection.
This Fortnite Battle Royale Golden Umbrella guide explains the process of how to unlock the item ready for you to use on your next conquest.
If you have been watching a variety of Fortnite Battle Royale videos on YouTube and Twitch, you will have noticed that some of the best players have chosen to slide into battle using an elegant umbrella accessory. No humble glider will do for the best, they would rather descend into battle with a little extra luxury weather protection.
How do I get the Golden Umbrella in Battle Royale you may ask?
The good news is that the process of acquiring the golden umbrella is a simple one, the bad news however is that you either have to get better at the game, get a little lucky – or most likely – a mix of both!
How to Unlock
The golden umbrella can be unlocked by winning a round of combat and becoming victorious out of all the players hoping to win the game – and win an umbrella of their own! It is important to note that winning a game in one mode, does not unlock it in the other modes.
What this basically means is that when you claim your first victory in a Solo match, the umbrella will be unlocked for future solo matches! If you want to unlock the umbrella for Duo and Squad matches, you will have to win a match in that game mode.
Once you have achieved your first ‘Victory Royale #1’ in either squad or solo modes, there are no further challenges to complete in order to unlock this umbrella! The item will be automatically added to your collection and equipped for your next game! This will mean that you can glide down into battle in style.
If you are struggling to claim an umbrella of your own then I highly recommend you take a look at our great Fortnite Battle Royale guides! In this section you will find a variety of tips, guides and strategy advice, perfect for help on deciding your landing spot and selecting the best weapons for chance of success!
