Fortnite Hearts Wild Valentine’s Day event: Start time, skins & more
Epic Games will be bringing a few changes to Fortnite Island for the Valentines Day Hearts Wild event. Players will be able to earn new rewards, and here’s everything you need to know about the event, including the start time.
Fortnite players are no strangers to festive events, as Epic Games previously decorated the battle royale for both Halloween and Christmas. Now, they’ve got something new up their sleeve for Valentine’s Day in the form of the Hearts Wild event.
There are plenty of neat rewards for you to pick up such as free in-game items and some classic Fortnite cosmetics that have returned to the Item Shop. You can also participate in Community Battles and in the Fortnite Hearts Wild Cup as part of a duo.
Here’s a complete run down of all the festivities we can expect from Fortnite’s Valentine’s Day event.
When does Fortnite Hearts Wild start?
While the Fortnite event started on February 8, the Hearts Wild Cup went live a day later on February 9, 2021. So you’re able to jump in and enjoy the event while the other activities start becoming available one by one.
The next Community Battles are titled Hearts Wild Team Battles and will run through February 10-17, 2021. Lastly, the Fishstick’s Shot at Love Challenges will become available in-game on February 11, 2021, at 6 AM PST / 9 AM ET.
Hearts Wild Cup
You can participate in Fortnite’s Hearts Wild Cup as part of a duo, as you attempt to complete 10 matches in the span of three hours while scoring points. The duos that score the most amount of points will win the Lovely Outfit and the Heartblast Back Bling.
Every duo that would like to take part in this challenge should be level 30 or higher and have 2FA enabled to be eligible. Be sure to play well if you want to earn yourself some neat Fortnite cosmetics.
Hearts Wild Team Battles
You’ll have the opportunity to team up with your favorite Fortnite Creators in the Hearts Wild Team Challenges from February 10 to 17. These community battles require you to earn points in order to get ahead of your opponents.
The team with the most points will receive a bundle of items; the Breathless Blades Pickaxe, Shuffly Shapes Wrap, Reel Love Spray, Perfect Match Emoticon, and Hearts Wild Team Battles Banner.
Hearts Wild skins and leaked cosmetics
The Fortnite Hearts Wild event will feature a plethora of Valentine’s Day-themed cosmetics that we’ve seen leaked before. Epic Games will also bring back the Lovethorn cosmetic among others.

Many of these were uncovered by data miners in the 15.30 patch update, such as the Cuddle King skin and the Lovely cosmetic. Those leaks also showed the Breathless Blades axe and the Shuffly Shapes wrap from the Hearts Wild event.
Fishstick’s Shot at Love Challenges
Epic Games will take the love-theme of this event even further with this week’s Quests, which will require you to find Fishstick a date for Valentine’s Day. You can do these while earning some serious XP so that you can unlock even more neat cosmetics.
We can expect to see the exact list of challenges soon, so we’ll know what to do in this weekly quest by February 11.
The Hearts Wild event is bringing brand new opportunities and rewards to Fortnite Island, so be sure to go out there to get them all!
