So far, we don’t have any confirmation regarding when exactly the event will end but it will probably be in early April 2021. If you want to bag yourself some neat new items, then you better hop into the game quickly.
Fortnite Spring Breakout skins
The Spring Breakout event brings some brand new seasonal skins for you to unlock, along with some from previous seasons. So far, we know of three that will join the game during the event.
Webster will arrive as a new character, and he resembles a robotic duck. You can unlock him for free by participating in the Spring Breakout Cup on April 2, 2021.
While the other two new skins are currently unknown, we know that old Bunny Brawler, Rabbit Raider, and Quackling outfits will return in the Item Shop.
How to get the Tactical Quaxes Pickaxe
Webster will bring along some brand new Legendary Quests, and completing the first one will let you earn an in-game reward in the form of the Tactical Quaxes Pickaxe.
These challenges will go live after the the event arrives, and you’ll be able to tackle them on April 1. However, we currently don’t know what tasks you’ll have to complete in these Legendary Quests.
The Egg Launcher returns to Fortnite
This timely event will also bring back the Easter-themed Egg Launcher to Fortnite, but we’re not sure how players will be able to obtain it. It used to be available as loot across the map, but now things might work differently.
You might be able to obtain it from an NPC that hangs around one of the many POIs in the Season 6 map. We expect to get more information about unlocking this weapon as the event goes underway.
Epic mentioned a “forgeable egg” that can be found on the map during the event, and it might work similarly to the hop rocks from previous seasons.
