We’re into Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6 and Epic are just now hosting their first official Spring event, called the Spring Breakout. This new event will feature some fan-favorite returning items, new skins, quests, and a tournament.
Here’s everything you need to know about the event, start date, and more.
Fortnite Spring Breakout release date
Spring Breakout is set to hit Fortnite on March 30, just in time for Easter. In the promotional material for the event, Epic revealed a handful of new skins that will come to the Item Shop over the next week or two.

These skins will have customizable options, which is good news for players with some V-Bucks to spend. Of course, if you want one of the older bunnies, they will probably be a part of the Spring Breakout Item Shop as well.
Quests and free rewards
This might be the first time that Epic have officially hosted a Spring event, but we know what to expect in Fortnite when Easter rolls around. Epic have added the Egg Launcher back to the game every Spring since the game was first released.
The Spring Breakout Event will offer some seasonal challenges, however, which we haven’t seen in previous seasons. These challenges will give you a chance to earn free cosmetics, including the Tactical Quaxes Pickaxe. We’ll post a guide to these challenges when they go live.
Spring Breakout Cup
The Spring Breakout Cup will kick off April 2. It’s a Duos competition and will replace the Friday Night Bragging Rights tournament for the week.
As usual, players have three hours to complete ten matches. Players who finish at the top of their region will earn the Webster Outfit and Mecha-Feathers Back Bling early and for free.
We’ll update you with more information about the Spring Breakout Cup, challenges, and rewards associated with the event. Make sure to follow us on Twitter @FortniteINTEL so you don’t miss any of the latest news.

Fortnite Champion Series Chapter 3 Season 3 start date and prize pool revealed
Fortnite has announced the Champion Series (FNCS) for Chapter 3 Season 3 in which pros worldwide will compete for 3 million dollars.
The Fortnite Champion Series is easily the most anticipated competitive event every season. In Chapter 3 Season 3, the likes of Bugha, Clix, and Arkhram, among others, will battle it out for a prize pool of 3 million dollars.
Epic Games has finally announced the FNCS for Chapter 3 Season 3. This time around, the logo seems to have a tropical theme that matches the ‘Vibin’ season. The meta has also changed significantly, and it will be interesting to see how some of the most talented esports athletes have adapted to it.
Everything to know about Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) Chapter 3 Season 3
Fortnite Champion Series for Chapter 3 Season 3 will begin on July 6 with 3 Qualifier rounds. The top five teams (Duos) from each round will directly advance to the FNCS Finals.
The qualifiers will take place till July 18 and the Semi-Finals will begin on July 21. As per Epic Games, the key to reaching the finals is Victory Royales and consistency. In the three Semi-Finals sessions, 6 Victory Royale winners and the top six consistent teams will move ahead.
The Finals will take place between August 12-14. There are two ways for a team to win the Fortnite Champion Series in Chapter 3 Season 3:
- The first team to get three Victory Royales and earn 475 points will be declared the FNCS champion. This is called the Match Point.
- If no team is able to acquire a Match Point at the end of 12 Finals matches, the duo with the highest points will win.
Chapter 3 Season 3 FNCS prize pool distribution
The prize pool for the Chapter 3 Season 3 FNCS is a whopping $3 million. However, it will be divided across several regions:
- EU: $1,350,000
- NAE: $690,000
- BR: $240,000
- NAW: $240,000
- ASIA: $240,000
- ME: $120,000
- OCE: $120,000
The prize pool is different for each region, primarily because of Fortnite’s prominence there. It is evident that the viewership numbers in Europe are much higher than in the Middle East and Oceania.
It is worth noting that fans should be able to unlock some free cosmetics by watching the matches. New FNCS-themed cosmetics also arrive in the Item Shop.
All in all, it is safe to assume that the Fortnite Champion Series for Chapter 3 Season 3 will be more exciting than ever. A ton of new features and weapons have arrived recently, and even map changes have been quite frequent.
Fortnite Island Hopper quests: How to collect 50 Gold Coins in Ultimate Murder Mystery
The No Sweat Summer event in Fortnite has arrived with Creative challenges. By completing them, you can get a ton of XP and free cosmetic rewards.
The No Sweat Summer event in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 has begun. Players can complete Island Hopper quests in Creative for some XP and free cosmetics.
Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 has a Vibin’ theme, and nothing suits it better than a goofy summer event. Even though Epic Games is yet to add summer-themed elements in Battle Royale, Creative mode already has six unique maps.
One such map is Ultimate Murder Mystery, and the goal is to get 50 Gold Coins from it.
Tips to get 50 Gold Coins in Ultimate Murder Mystery in Fortnite
It is worth noting that you have to either get 50 Gold Coins in Ultimate Murder Mystery as an Innocent or get five Melee eliminations as a Hunter or Sheriff. The reward will be 10,000 XP regardless.
Getting the 50 Gold Coins is much easier because the map offers a daily present that has 25 Gold Coins. This means that you can complete the challenge by simply entering the map for two days and opening the box.
However, if you wish to complete the Island Hopper challenges as quickly as possible, just enter a game and find Gold Coins scattered all over the place.
Completing tasks and getting eliminated also grants Gold in Ultimate Murder Mystery which is why a few games should be more than enough to get the XP reward.
How to get five Melee eliminations in Ultimate Murder Mystery in Fortnite
The melee eliminations challenge can be completed only when players play as a Sheriff or a Hunter in Ultimate Murder Mystery. However, doing so is much harder than the previous task.
This is because every opponent will be running away from the Hunter and the Sheriff on the map. Basically, it’s like a game of Among Us in which completing tasks as a Crewmate is definitely easier than planning murders as an Imposter.
All in all, getting XP from Island Hopper quests in Fortnite v21.10 is not that tiring. Anyone struggling to level up the Battle Pass can rely on them.
Fortnite to introduce Mitosis and other No Sweat Summer NPCs in Season 3
Fortnite players can expect new NPCs on the island with the 21.10 update. These include Mitosis, Underwriter, Summer Meowscles, and more.
Brand-new Fortnite NPCs will soon arrive in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3. While some like Mitosis will be related to the Reality Tree storyline, others like Unpeely will cater to the No Sweat Summer theme.
After a nerve-wracking war in Chapter 3 Season 2, Fortnite has switched to a ‘Vibin’ theme and a summer event is right around the corner. Alongside Creative challenges for XP, there will be summer-themed NPCs on the island.
The biggest highlight of the Chapter 3 Season 3 storyline has been the Reality Tree, and an NPC named Mitosis related to this new phenomenon should also arrive in the coming weeks.
Everything to know about Mitosis NPC in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3
Not much is known about Mitosis at the moment, but leaker iFireMonkey has unearthed the following details about him through in-game files:
- Mitosis will be a skin with 1-3 selectable styles and a glider.
- Mitosis is a male skin
Interestingly, Mitosis is the process through which a cell divides itself. This is similar to the Reality Tree expanding its roots in locations like Logjam Lumberyard. You can even spot a small pink tree in these roots and rumors have suggested that another Reality Tree might grow on the island.
The Fortnite community calls the Reality Tree the Bloomwatcher. Mitosis could very well be the male version of the Reality Tree and there’s a leaked survey skin that resembles this description:
A new Fortnite NPC will spawn in Tilted Towers
There’s another mysterious NPC in the files called The Underwriter. Epic Games is yet to give this character a face and an outfit, but it’s confirmed that they will spawn in Tilted Towers.
iFireMonkey believes that this NPC could be related to The Block 2.0. The codename for The Underwriter in the files is No Sweat which has made loopers even more curious about it.
Fortnite No Sweat Summer event to bring back Unpeely, Summer Drift, and other characters
With the upcoming 21.10 update, Fortnite will release the No Sweat Summer event which will revolve around Creative challenges for XP. However, the map will also undergo some changes and you can look forward to interacting with these characters:
- Summer Drift
- Boardwalk Ruby
- Beach Bomber
It is safe to assume that these summer-themed NPCs won’t be around for a long time, and accordingly, visiting them won’t add to your collection book.
Last but not least, players are hoping that Epic Games will finally release a Summer Meowscles skin in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3. The skin has been teased repeatedly, and it can definitely help in making No Sweat Summer 2022 a massive success.
As it turns out, the map already has a location/house full of Meowscles’ items such as a litter box and a mat.
