Fortnite has launched its official collaboration event with the NBA. During the Fortnite x NBA The Crossover event, players can choose a team to rep and earn points for.

Epic Games announced NBA The Crossover earlier this morning in celebration of the upcoming playoff games. Players can choose from 30 NBA teams, purchase brand new basketball cosmetics, and complete tasks to earn points and rewards.

While some rewards can be earned by all players, there are certain prizes that only the winning team will receive. The third place team will earn 100 V-Bucks, second place will earn 300 V-Bucks, and first place will earn 500 V-Bucks and the NBA Championship Trophy Back Bling.

Earning NBA The Crossover points & rewards

First, players will need to visit nbateambattles.fortnite.com to sign in and choose a team to rep. After this, they can start to earn points for their team. Each day at 12 a.m. EST, a new task will be unlocked that will earn 1,000 points for the player’s team once completed. The first task is to play for 24 minutes in regular solo, duos, trios, or squads mode.

There will be five challenge tasks with the last one unlocking on May 23. From May 22 to 23, players will also be able to complete repeatable tasks that will earn more points for their team. The team with the most points scored at the end of the event is the winner.

However, there are also rewards that players can earn without being one of the top three teams. The Spin Spray is unlocked once a player completes three of the NBA The Crossover daily tasks. If a player completes all five daily tasks, they will earn a basketball banner.

There are also six new NBA skins which feature all new character models. There are 31 different uniforms the skins can wear including all 30 of the NBA teams. The set also includes a Mini Hoop Back Bling and the Hookshot Emote. These can be used together to shoot and score on the go. Lastly, the Dribblin’ traversal Emote allows players to school their opponents on and off the court.

fortnite wild week 4 gold discount

Fortnite Wild Week 4 has started, and it focuses on discounting the price of NPC items. Here’s every item’s new price and where they can be found.

During the sixth week of Fortnite Season 6, Epic Games announced the first-ever Wild Week. These would be week-long events that would emphasize one of the game’s mechanics. The first week made flammable weapons spawn more frequently. The second week made fishing holes and Super Rods more abundant. And the third week made Shockwave Grenade, Bows, and Bounce Pads appear more frequently.

Now, it’s the 11th and final week of Season 6, which means it’s time for Fortnite Wild Week 4. Similar to the end of Season 5, all of the items that can be purchased from NPCs with gold bars have been discounted. If a player has been waiting to get their hands on an Exotic weapon, there’s no better time than right now.

Gold discounts for Wild Week 4

Above is a map showing the location of every NPC in Fortnite Season 6. Each NPC has an icon next to it that indicates which items they currently sell. Not every NPC sells items, but the ones that do have a discounted price. The chart below shows the new price of every item/weapon an NPC can sell.

Item NameDiscounted Price
Storm Circle Intel85 bars
Prop Disguises35 Bars
Rift To Go120 Bars
Shadow Tracker Pistol200 Bars
Hop Rock Dualies250 Bars
Chug Cannon300 Bars
Grappler Bow250 Bars
Marksman Six Shooter200 Bars
Unstable Bow250 bars

It’s also worth noting that intel for other items such as chest locations, vehicle locations, etc. have also been given a 50% discount. Below is another map that shows the location of every purchasable Exotic weapon. Since these weapons have been heavily discounted, players may want to drop here first to get a leg up in battle.

This discount will last until the end of Season 6, and it’s unknown whether the gold bar system will return in Season 7. Seeing as it’s already lasted two seasons, and the mechanic is popular among players, it will likely return. However, since players won’t carry over their bars, Fortnite Wild Week 4 is the perfect time to spend them all.

Fortnite’s Alien Invasion has begun

Players are starting to be abducted by UFOs as the Fortnite Alien Invasion begins. Here’s footage of the first abductions.

Players are starting to be abducted and transported to random points of the map marking the beginning of the Fortnite Alien Invasion.

When the v16.50 patch was released two weeks ago, data miners discovered files containing extraterrestrial content. There were various visual assets depicting aliens and character animations showing players getting abducted. However, no one knew when the Fortnite Alien Invasion would take place.

After these mysterious files were found, several streamers received portable DVD players in the mail. Each came with a DVD titled “They’re Coming”, and each had unique footage of different crop circles. This all but proved that aliens would be coming to Fortnite.

Fortnite invaded by aliens

Many players suspected that the UFOs would make first contact on Tuesday, June 1. Yet, Tuesday had almost come and gone without the slightest bit of movement in the sky. It wasn’t until around 10:30 p.m. EST on Tuesday that Twitter user RexiumFN posted the first footage of an alien abduction.

RexiumFN and various other players had been hanging out at Risky Reels when a beam of green light came from the sky and target one of the players. Everyone stood idly by as their friend was picked up by this light before vanishing.

Shortly after, another Twitter user named HyperDiamond123 uploaded a first-person view of themselves being abducted. Again, the abduction happened at Risky Reels, and the player was transported a little way outside of the landmark. The player appeared face down on the ground before bringing themselves back onto their feet.

The Fortnite Alien Invasion has officially started, and it’s presumed that abductions will happen more frequently as Season 6 draws to a close. Season 7 starts on June 8 which means players have until then to be swept off their feet by alien lifeforms.

It should be noted that alien abductions happen at random, and multiple people can be picked up at one time. Players who are abducted will have their healthy and shield restored but will be teleported to a random location. Regardless, it’s time for some good ‘ole fashioned alien hunting.

Los Angeles Lakers take first place in Fortnite x NBA The Crossover

The Fortnite x NBA The Crossover event has concluded with the Los Angeles Lakers winning by over 30 million points.

The Fortnite x NBA The Crossover event has concluded, and the Los Angeles Lakers won by a landslide.

The competition started on May 19 allowing players to sign up online and choose the NBA team they wanted to represent. All 30 NBA teams were eligible to be selected, and each had a maximum of 15,000 players. However, players could still join those teams as fans and could still earn points for the team.

The difference between a player and a fan is that only the players can earn the rewards if their team placed in the top three. So, while the Los Angeles Lakers only had 136k members, only the 15k team members will earn the rewards. Regardless, the massive number of people supporting the Lakers allowed their team to win by a huge margin.

Lakers win Fortnite x NBA The Crossover

The Los Angeles Lakers and its 136k members scored a total of 86,821,005 points. These points were earned by completing daily challenges and repeatable challenges. It was clear early in the competition that the Lakers were going to win. At the end of the event, the Lakers placed first with over 30 million more points than the second-place team.

In second place, the Chicago Bulls earned 56,508,110 points followed by the Brooklyn Nets who scored 50,531,567. All of the remaining teams scored within a few million of one another. Yet, no one even came close to the Los Angeles Lakers.

A lot of players felt it unfair that an unlimited number of fans could join any team. While they wouldn’t earn any of the rewards at the end, they could still amass points for their teams. The 15k player cap mixed with website issues on the day the event launched led to a lot of frustration.

First place was awarded 500 V-Bucks per player, second place was 300, and third place was 100. These V-Bucks can take up to 30 days to appear in the players’ accounts. As well, every first-place teammate will earn the NBA Championship Back Bling. This cosmetic item will appear in the shop at a later date.
