Fortnite Season 4 introduced a unique mechanic to unlocking skin-specific cosmetics. We have ‘Awakening’ challenges this season, which allow us to progress through the Battle Pass at our own pace – unlocking some cool cosmetics along the way.
This time, we’re looking at Mystique and her Shapeshifter emote. Completing these challenges will allow you to steal enemy skins once you kill them. Here’s what you’ll need to do.
Stage 1: Use a Phone Booth as Mystique
This is the easiest stage of the Mystique Awakening challenge. All you need to do is find a Phone Booth as Mystique and jump inside. She is the master of disguise, after all.
There are several Phone Booths scattered around the map but the most obvious are those located in Stark Industries and Doom’s Domain. Just like the last two seasons, you can jump inside and disguise yourself as a henchman.
Stage 2: Deal damage with different rarity Pistols as Mystique
From the easiest stage of the challenge to the most annoying. You’re going to need to damage players with different pistol rarities. For this one, you can use the Gray, Green, and Blue normal Pistols or the Purple/Gold Magnum.

There isn’t really much of a guide to this one apart from persistence. Finding normal pistols is relatively easy – too easy, in fact – so you should be able to finish the challenge within a couple of games. The trick is trying not to throw a fight while using a pistol.
We recommend finding a Gray pistol, damaging a player, upgrading to Green and doing the same thing. If you only have the Blue rarity left, it’s probably worth going to Team Rumble and finishing the challenge there. Good luck with this one.
Stage 3: Emote as Mystique after eliminating an opponent
This stage is straightforward, as well. All you need to do is eliminate a player in any mode and emote. As always, Team Rumble will offer the easiest path to completion but it’s probably not necessary.

This emote might be the coolest one of the season and is the ultimate reward for completing the Mystique Awakening challenges. You can steal opponent skins after you kill them. Every want to be a Renegade Raider? Now’s your chance!
We wish the emote lasted for a bit longer, but it’s still a cool way to troll an opponent after they die. It can also mess up some enemy communications if you switch skins at the right time.

Democratic norms are being stress-tested all over the world, and the past few years have thrown up all kinds of questions we didn't know needed clarifying – how long is too long for a parliamentary prorogation?
