It’s time to kick back, relax, listen to some tunes and survive a deadly island filled with people trying to kill you at any cost. Er, sorry, “eliminate” you at any cost. The 14 days of summer are here in Fortnite: Battle Royale, apparently providing a little respite before we get ready to do whatever it is we’re going to do with the giant monster at the end of the season. Like the 14 Days of Fortnite before it, the 14 Days of Summer comes with a new daily LTM, challenge and reward, and this time around we’re getting a new unvaulted weapon every day. The challenges are the highlight
The first challenge we have here today is “Dance at Different Beach Parties”, and you can read a guide for that here. Keep an eye on Forbes, because we’ll have guides for all the challenges as they come online. As with previous events, however, all the challenges have leaked in advance. Dataminer Lucas7yoshi was able to get the complete list, with rewards, in what appears to be the correct order:
There are a lot of hidden object hunts on this one: things like dance parties, clown boards, unicorn floaties and more. That seems to be how Epic is partitioning this season: most of the main weekly challenges have been combat based, but we’re moving the scavenger hunt-style things to both Fortbytes and limited time events: overall it means more challenges, but it also means that the tenor of the weekly challenges is a little different.
Completing all the challenges earns you an excellent Peely-themed back bling:
These things are always a fun way to get free-to-play players a chance to earn some nice-looking rewards, even if actual skins are much harder to come by. Technically a free-to-play player could have gotten a free skin by earning the Season 8 battle pass at the end of Season 7 and then grabbing some from there, but they never show up in events like this.
That’s it for now, but check back soon. I’m still working my way through a substantial Fortbyte list that built up during E3, so I’ve got plenty of challenges to work with already.
