With Fortnite Season 3, Epic Games is offering to let you play in an Aquaman skin—and not just normie Aquaman. Shirtless Jason Momoa Aquaman. The best kind of aquatic superhero. Epic won't give him to you for free, though. Much like Deadpool's challenges in Season 2, you'll have to complete a bunch of challenges to earn him.

Here's how to complete each Aquaman challenge in Fortnite.

How to start the Fortnite Aquaman challenges

First things first, here are the two Aquaman skins you'll get for eventually completing the challenges.

The first step to starting the Fortnite Aquaman challenges is buying the Season 3 battle pass for at least 1,000 V-Bucks, or the deluxe battle pass for 2,500 V-Bucks that gets you automatically leveled up further. That will unlock the Aquaman challenges on the challenge list in the battle pass menu.

Here are all the challenges so far: 

- Use a whirlpool at the Fortilla location.
- Use a fishing pole to ride behind a Loot Shark at Sweaty Sands.
- Catch different types of fish (2) in a single match

To use a whirlpool at the Fortilla location, you'll first need to find one. Head to the Fortilla location in the southwest portion of the map. It's the big sea shanty town you saw in the Season 3 trailer. You'll find a whirlpool at the southern end of town. If you're flying in from above, look for the large whirl in the water, not the smaller splashes that mark where fish are. I noticed you have to be swimming, not in a boat, to complete this challenge. Simply swim into the whirlpool and you'll be shot into the sky, completing the challenge.

To use a fishing pole to ride behind a loot shark at Sweaty Sands, simply head to the location (it's still in the northwest portion of the map), find a fishing pole, and cast the fishing pole near a shark. It might take a few tries, but eventually you should hook the shark and you'll be pulled along on the water. Completing this challenge will reward you with a trident art spray.

To catch different types of fish in a single match, all you need to do is exactly that. Find a fishing rod, find a swirl of fish around any of the major stretches of water, and apparently all it takes is catching two different kind of fish. Shouldn't be that hard to do. Your reward will be the "sea shaka" emote.

More challenges will be added as the season goes on, and we'll be updating this page as we go along, so make sure to check back every week.
