SypherPK is Unmasked (And Re-Masked?) in the Fortnite Icon Series

The Fortnite Team

SypherPK: creator, streamer, and warrior possessed by a powerful Oni?

SypherPK is next to join the Fortnite Icon Series, bringing his newly founded dark aura with him! Jump into SypherPK’s PIT island starting with the release of Chapter 3 Season 4 and complete Quests for a special Emoticon and Loading Screen. Then starting Thursday, September 22, 2022, at 8 PM ET, check out a suite of SypherPK items in the Item Shop — including the SypherPK Outfit and supernatural accessories. 

Looking to get Oni-transformed early? On Wednesday, September 21, compete in the SypherPK Icon Cup for the opportunity to earn the SypherPK Outfit before it enters the Item Shop — plus the SYPHER IS HERE Spray!

SypherPK Outfit

The SYPHER IS HERE Spray is a sneak peek of the SypherPK Outfit. Sypher was indeed there, but his Outfit will also be in the Item Shop starting September 22 at 8 PM ET! This Outfit includes the non-Onified default Style, the Oni-infused Empowered Style, and the reactive Possessed Style. With the Possessed Style, start each match Empowered, then become more and more Oni-fied with each elimination you get.

From left to right: SypherPK default Style, Empowered Style, and Possessed Style.

Whether Oni-fied or not, put an Oni mask… on. If you have the default Style of the Outfit selected, you can choose to wear the Crimson Mask. If you have one of the alt Styles selected, you can choose to wear the Onyx Mask.

SypherPK Accessories

The Sypher antenna (an-tan-na) is still picking up signals — the following SypherPK accessories will be available in the Item Shop starting September 22 at 8 PM ET:

  • Oni’s Curse Back Bling: It only grows stronger. (Included with the SypherPK Outfit.)

    • Reactive — its energy increases as you get more eliminations in a match.

  • Sypher’s Scimitar Pickaxe: A curved blade imbued with dark power.

    • Reactive — its energy increases as you get more eliminations in a match.

  • Sypher’s Strut Emote: Sheeeeeesh indeed.
