There are many different ways in which you can customize one of the Fortnite Battle Pass Skins, Maya, and here is how you the customization feature works.

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 2 was finally released after the longest season to take place for the game, but there were many changes that were made in this season. One of the new features that Epic have introduced is players effectively being able to make their own Skin.

Build Your Maya Fortnite Skin

Once you have purchased the Season 12 Fortnite Battle Pass, you will unlock the Gear Specialist Maya Skin at Level 1. At first glance, this Skin looks extremely basic, too basic to be classed as Legendary, however, this Skin is unique and it is the only Skin that you can customize to make however you want it.

Here is how the customization of the Skin works:

  • Purchase the Season 2 Battle Pass and visit Maya’s Upgrade Vault
  • Complete Maya’s Challenge each week to be able to upgrade different parts of her outfit
  • Preview your upgrade choices and then permanently lock them in as you finish challenges to craft your own unique version of Maya

You can customize Maya from the Upgrade Vault, which can be accessed in the Battle Pass tab and it will be the right corner. The first part you can customize for Maya is her hairstyle, but in order to do this, you must first complete the first Maya Challenge, which is:

  • Achieve AR Specialist by dealing 250 damage with Assault Rifles in a single match (5)

Maya Hairstyle Customization Choices

As soon as you have completed the first challenge, you will be able to choose which hairstyle you want your Maya Skin to have and there are four to choose from.

The first option is to keep it as default:

Fortnite Maya Hairstyle Option 1 - Default
Fortnite Maya Hairstyle Option 1 – Default

The second option is to have a bob:

Fortnite Maya Hairstyle Option 2 - Bob
Fortnite Maya Hairstyle Option 2 – Bob

The third option you can choose is to have a ponytail:

Fortnite Maya Hairstyle Option 3 - Ponytail
Fortnite Maya Hairstyle Option 3 – Ponytail

The fourth and final option is having a pixie cut:

Fortnite Maya Hairstyle Option 4 - Pixie
Fortnite Maya Hairstyle Option 4 – Pixie

A new challenge will be released every week for Maya and once completed, you will be able to customize her in a different way. Here are all the customizations you can do for the Skin:

  • Hairstyle
  • Tattoos
  • Sleeves
  • Boots
  • Shirt Colors
  • Vest
  • Helmet
  • Pants Color
  • Face Paint
  • Scarf

We will let you know as soon as a new challenge is released for Maya and all the different options you can choose. Which hairstyle are you picking for your Maya? Let us know in the comments section below.

It would be REALLY cool if you could change the styles at any time after they are unlocked. That’s the way most cosmetics work, after all. It wouldn’t surprise me if they change it so that you can, especially if they get a lot of complaints.

My daughter also accidentally chose a hairstyle for Maya that she does not like and now it has become permanent? It is incredibly f****** unreasonable of epic to leave no option whatsoever should someone accidentally click the wrong thing, especially due to excitement. Now my child’s supposed customized character, on a game she loves that I pay quite a lot of money into, is stuck having a hairstyle she absolutely hates. Why does it have to be permanent? Why can’t it be interchangeable? Such a disappointment. Epic Games, you should really fix this so that if people accidentally choose the… Read more »

It does give you a message warning that all are permanent. I understand the frustration with accidentally hitting the wrong button, but some of the people that are complaining and saying how stupid Epic is, just sound like a bunch of babies.
