Spring has officially sprung in the Northern Hemisphere, and Fortnite is celebrating the start of the new season with its first-ever springtime event. Called “Spring Breakout,” this new limited-time event adds new outfits, an egg-themed weapon, and more.
Epic Games ran down all the details in a blog post, and we’ve broken down the key details here to get you up to speed quickly.
New Content To Unlock
Running March 30-April 7, the Spring Breakout event brings back the Egg Launcher weapon, which, as its name suggests, lets you shoot eggs to celebrate Easter. Players can also complete a new quest from Webster–a new character who offers Legendary quests–that rewards you with the Tactical Quaxes pickaxe. This quest goes live on Thursday, April 1, but it is no April Fools’ joke.
Additionally, Fortnite’s island is getting new eggs that, when consumed, make you hop like a bunny rabbit.
New Items To Buy
Fortnite’s in-game store is being stocked with new items to buy, themed around spring and Easter. The Bunny Brawler, Rabbit Raider, and Quackling outfits are all returning.
Spring Breakout Cup
Starting April 2 is the Spring Breakout Cup, which is a Duos competition series. Players have three hours to complete up to 10 matches to earn tournament points. The top-earners for each region will receive the Webster outfit and Mecha-Feathers back bling.
Players must be account level 30 or above and have 2FA enabled to compete.
Fortnite fans who want to craft items in the real world can now download brand-new papercraft masks and foldables. These include the Stella, Rabbit Raider, and Webster masks, as well as the Bun Bun, Nitehare, and Cluck foldables.
