With us all no doubt looking over at our chocolate Easter eggs and counting down the time until we can gobble them up (just me?), Epic are getting into the sprit of the season with the Spring Breakout event in Fortnite.
A celebration of all things Easter, the Spring Breakout will bring new skins, tournaments, and more to the world of Fortnite: Chapter 2 – Season 6, as well as some returning favourites. If you’ve been a little disinterested in Fortnite since the launch of the new season, and like FNAF, these clearly inspired skins should be for you.
Here’s everything you need to know about Spring Breakout 2021 in Fortnite.
When Does Spring Breakout Begin?
Spring Breakout begins on Tuesday, March 30th, 2021 following the end of downtime for v16.10, the first update for the new season. Expect that to last for around an hour and kick off at 8AM BST.
Spring Breakout Skins
We are getting a tonne of skins over the next week in Fortnite, including some familiar faces. Bunny Brawler, Rabbit Raider, and Quackling will all make a return to the Item Shop, but we will also get some brand new skins, which are a little twisted and supposed to be Easter villains. One of those villains is Webster, who looks like he’s right out of FNAF and can even be won for free.
Spring Breakout Cup
The Spring Breakout Cup will take place from April 2nd and replace Friday Night Bragging Rights. It’s a Duos tournament in which players will be able to battle for points across ten matches by eliminating other players and placement. Whoever get the most points will earn the Webster Outfit and Mecha-Feathers Back Bling ahead of its release in the Item Shop.
Spring Breakout Challenges
Webster is pretty much everywhere in Fortnite during Spring Breakout apparently, as you will even be able to talk to him on the map as an NPC from Thursday, April 1st to get a Legendary quest. Completing it will give you the Tactical Quaxes Pickaxe, all for free.
Spring Breakout Weapons
There are no “new” weapons in Spring Breakout, but the Egg Launcher, which is just an Easter-themed Grenade Launcher, will be coming back to the game. It’s been well over a year since the Grenade Launcher was in Fortnite, so it will be nice to see it again. There will also be a new egg item added with v16.10, but it’s not clear yet how it will work.
