Completing two challenges will unlock the Believer Beach loading screen, and completing six gets you the icy pop wrap for weapons and vehicles. Finally, successful completion of 12 quests grants you the Lil’ Treat emote.

You’ll notice that these Fortnite Cosmic Summer quests are all based on different Community Creation LTMs, and many of them are fairly straightforward.

The first one requires you to deal 100 damage to opponents in the Bios Zone Wars Trios game mode. This will net you the Brain Freeze Slurpberry as a reward.

If you score ten headshots in the same mode, you’ll complete another goal but will receive no additional reward. You can apply 500 shields or health in it to get the Firecracker Freefall contrail.

50 assists from allies will help you earn the Cloud Coral Board, and you can spend ten coins at the vending machine in the Pro 100 minigame for the Brain Freeze Slimeberry.

Dealing 100 damage with a rocket launcher in Pro 100 gets you the Beach Blast music, and you can do 20 revivals for the Cloudy Cat Board reward.

Freaky Flights is a mini-game that takes the battle to the skies. You’ll need to fly 5000 meters in a X-4 Stormwing for the Brain Freeze Orangeberry reward. You can get this done by flying in circles around the area.

During this mini-game, you can spend 50 coins at the vending machine to get the Ka-Bang! wrap. Successfully eliminate 25 players with your X-4 to win the Cloud Crew Board.

In the Pit, you can build 500 structures through the in-game construction mechanic to get the Brain Freeze Whirlberry. Once you’ve finished building those structures, you can destroy them all for the Stellar Sipper emote.

Keep 5 different weapons on you, and use them all to eliminate players in a single match of The Pit to get the Marshmallets pickaxe. If you manage to land 50 headshots while doing this, then you will also get the Golden Wave Board.

Believer Beach disappears in the Fortnite Cosmic Summer Celebration

There’s was theory floating around that the Believer Beach event will cause the total destruction of Coral Castle. A leaked image from data miner TheFoundoFN_7 showed a completely different POI in its place.

Then on the morning of June 22, the whole area disappeared from the Island. Players noticed that a few buildings at Holly Hedges also mysteriously vanished around the same time.

The official Fortnite Status Twitter account then tweeted that they were “investigating” this, but it’s likely that this was an intentional change to build-up hype for the Cosmic Summer party.

The Fortnite Cosmic Summer Celebration event will take place right before the Epic Games offices close for their annual two-week Summer break. We’ll be sure to update this article with more details as they’re announced.

There’s also another event planned for this week in the form of the Thanos cup. This will bring the mad titan back as a new skin, years after his LTM debut in the battle royale.
