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.
Fortnitemares 2021: New skins, weapons, and event schedule
Fortnitemares 2021 is finally here to celebrate the Halloween spirit. Players can enjoy new skins, new weapons, and new events.
Fortnitemares 2021 is finally here and it’s jam-packed with new Halloween content. Here are all of the new skins, weapons, and events featured during Fortnitemares 2021.
Each year, Epic Games celebrates Halloween by hosting the in-game Fortnitemares event. As you may have guessed, the event name is a blend of Fortnite and Nightmares. It’s the annual Halloween celebration inside of Fortnite.
This event features some of the best skins to come from Fortnite. These skins are usually timed exclusives meaning they won’t be back until the next Fortnitemares event. And Fortnitemares 2021 is no exception.
There are also new weapons and events during this year’s event. So, while Fortnite Season 8 may not be off to the hottest of starts, the Halloween season is sure to heat things up.
New Fortnitemares Skins
First off, there are a bunch of new skins coming to Fortnite this Halloween. According to one of the Fortnitemares tarot cards, Rick Grimes from The Walking Dead should be making an appearance.
As well, Frankenstein’s Monster, a classic Halloween creature, is coming to the Item Shop. He will be released along with Curdle Scream Leader, a horrifying addition to the Cuddle Team Leader line of skins.
There is also a new Renegade Raider skin that looks similar to Skull Trooper. And even Skull Trooper is getting a new golden variant.
But the biggest skin is scheduled to be released during week 3 of the Fortnitemares event. This is when the Season 8 Battle Pass mystery skin will be revealed.
New Halloween Weapons in Fortnitemares 2021
So far, we only know of one new weapon coming to Fortnite during the Fortnitemares event. The Dual Fiend Crossbows which were shown off in the Season 8 trailer have been released. However, they aren’t that great.
According to streamers like SypherPK, the crossbows feel more like a gimmick. They are meant to be used against the Sideways Monsters and fail to perform in PvP combat. Nonetheless, they are finally in Fortnite.
Weekly Fortnitemares Tarot Card Readings
Not much is happening on the Island yet, but there is still a lot to look forward to. Each week, four different tarot cards will be read which depict what is coming to Fortnitemares next.
There will be four weeks of four cards meaning players can look forward to 16 different tarot card readings. Players can also speculate what each card means as the backs of the cards have hints.
So, Fortnitemares 2021 may not have shrouded the island in purple fog, and players don’t respawn as ghosts. But there are a lot of neat cosmetics coming to Fortnite this Halloween season.

Fortnite Season 7 live event date, time, countdown, and Season 8 Start
There will be a Fortnite live event for the end of Season 7. The start date and time for the event, and for Season 8 have been revealed.
Thanks to a recent leak, we now know when the Fortnite Season 7 live event will take place, and when Season 8 starts.
Fortnite is known for its flashy and exciting live events. Whether they’re at the start of a season or the end of one, these events are a spectacle to behold.
These live events have evolved over time. They started with a live rocket launch in Chapter 1 Season 4. And now, players are taken on immersive trips in front of Ariana Grande and Travis Scott.
However, the most exciting events are the ones focused on the game’s storyline. The events that end seasons are among the most anticipated. And luckily, Season 7 has a Fortnite live event.
Will there be a Fortnite Season 7 live event?
Yes, there will be a Fortnite Season 7 live event. The official Fortnite Twitter announced the Season 7 live event today! The event is called Operation Sky Fire and will take place on September 12.

This event will be the conclusion to the battle between The IO and the Aliens. However, we don’t know exactly what will happen. However, we can assume it will be big as it is supposed to make major changes to the Season 8 map.
Season 7 live event date and time
Operation Sky Fire will take place at 4 PM EST on September 12, 2021. Players will want to log in to Fortnite at least 15 to 30 minutes prior to the event. This will ensure that players are able to reserve their spots.
This event will only take place once, so make sure not to miss it. As well, replays of the event will not be available so make sure you are recording during the event.
What will happen during Season 7 live event?
We don’t know for sure, but we can make educated guesses based on the story leading up to the end. We know that Doctor Slone has placed several explosive devices underneath Corny Complex.
The Mothership is currently abducting Corny Complex. Slone’s plan is to detonate the explosives once they are inside the Mothership. However, the event could go one of two ways.
Either Slone will succeed and the Corny Complex will be fully abducted. Or, the Aliens could realize the explosives are underneath Corny Complex and drop the POI. We will also see how the Zero Point plays into the storyline since it was also abducted.
Fortnite Season 8 start date
Fortnite Season 8 will start sometime on September 13th according to leaker iFireMonkey. Epic Games will take the Fortnite servers offline immediately after the live event. This is for downtime for Season 8.
Downtimes usually last 3 – 4 hours, however, this one seems like it’s going to be a fair bit longer. iFireMonkey tweeted an official email he received from Stream Elements stated Season 8 would start on September 13th. This means that the Downtime for Season 8 will be fairly long.

Fortnite celebrates the LGBTQIA+ community with Rainbow Royale event
The Rainbow Royale event is here to represent and support the Fortnite LGBTQIA+ community. Celebrate with free gear and new music.
Epic Games has announced the Rainbow Royale, an in-game event meant to celebrate the Fortnite LGBTQIA+ community.
Fortnite wants players to know that everyone is welcome aboard the Battle Bus, and as such, it is throwing an in-game celebration for a portion of its community. The event is called Rainbow Royale, and Epic Games invites everyone to see what’s happening in-game and beyond during this celebration.

Free Cosmetic Items
For the next week, Fortnite’s Item Shop will have six free items that players can claim and gift to friends. These Rainbow Royale cosmetics can be used to support diversity as well as battle in style. Players will have to manually purchase the items, but they are all listed at a price of 0 V-Bucks.
The free Rainbow Royale cosmetics include the Take A ‘Bow emote, Wild Rainbow Wrap, and four sprays. The sprays are colored to represent a wider spectrum of the Fortnite LGBTQIA+ community.
Fortnite Rainbow Royale Radio changes
Last month, Rocket League added several free tracks to the game through the Love ISLV playlist. Now, these songs have made their way into Fortnite via the game’s own radio stations. Eight different songs from LGBTQIA+ artists can be heard across three different radio stations. Here are the tracks and their respective station:
- Big Freedia – Platinum
- Lil Nas X – Montero
- King Princess – Pain
- Troye Sivan – STUD
- Ben Platt – Imagine
- Daya – Bad Girl
- Hayley Kiyoko – Found My Friends
