Epic Games have decided to surprise fans on April Fool’s day with a brand-new skin in the form of Diamond Hanz, who you’ll recognize from WallStreetBets, Stonks, and tendies.
April 1 is a day that’s always full of surprises, and Fortnite players have received a very pleasant one this year. Season 6 has already won over fans with its various new features, and Epic Games have decided to release a new skin for April Fool’s day.
The Diamond Hanz skin is based on the popular ‘Stonks’ meme, which makes it the perfect pick for this day. It’s part of the game’s “To the Moon” set, and here’s what we know about this new addition.
If the terms ‘To the moon,’ ‘diamond hands,’ and ‘Stonks’ seem unfamiliar to you, know that they’re part of the lingo that investors have used while driving up the price of Gamestop stock.

The bundle contains the Diamond Hanz skin, along with the ‘Gains’ backbling that you might recognize as the arrow from the meme. Considering the date, adding the Stonks skin to Fortnite is certainly an amusing decision.
The best part is that it’s not just an April Fool’s joke, and you can actually purchase the skin from the Item Shop for 1,200 V-Bucks. Epic Games have also brought back the Egg Launcher, along with a new foraged item: Hop Drops.
This tribute to the WallStreetBets crowd is certainly a fun little addition that Fortnite fans are going to enjoy playing with. Even though Season 6 just started, the developers have started making it a memorable experience for players.
In addition to this bundle, we’ve also seen the introduction of other new cosmetics through the Spring Breakout event. You can unlock the free Webster skin by participating and playing well in the season’s first tournament.

Creating a safe area to hold down is one of the most important strategies to winning a game of Fortnite. Maintaining the high ground and having solid cover is ever-important and now your defense can now be even stronger thanks to the new Armored Walls Trap.
These Armored Walls have arrived in Fortnite Battle Royale matches with the September 21 update. In the accompanying announcement, Epic Games revealed that Armored Walls can be found in Supply Boxes and on the ground. So, it shouldn’t be too difficult to find them, you just need to loot around.
How to use Armored Walls in Fortnite
Armored Walls are Uncommon Traps, so will go into the Trap inventory slot. Like placing the old Damage Traps or Bouncers, you just need to approach one of your own structures with Armor Plates in your inventory and press your Trap keybind, e.g T.
The wall will now become a thick metal structure with 2,500 HP, so the enemies will have an extremely hard time breaking through. However, it works both ways, so be careful you don’t box yourself in!
Here’s a quick summary:
- Build or approach one of your walls in Fortnite
- Have the Armored Walls trap at the ready
- Press your Trap button to apply it to the surface
And that’s how you can find and use Armored Walls in Fortnite Season 8! For more guides, check out how to level up the Fortnite Season 8 Battle Pass fast.

Fortnite Fourth Birthday event: Start date, Quests, rewards
Fortnite is nearing its fourth birthday, and there’s a full in-game event coming so players can join in with the celebrations.
It’s hard to believe that it’s been four years since Fortnite began taking over the gaming world, but it’s true. Once again, Epic is celebrating in style with a special in-game Fourth Fortnite Birthday event. We’ve got the lowdown right here.
Fortnite Season 8 is a throwback in many ways, mainly thanks to the return of Kevin and his fellow alien Cubes. That’s why it’s fitting that the new season coincides with the anniversary of the battle royale’s release.
So, to celebrate, Epic is launching a Fourth Fortnite Birthday event for players to dive into, packed with plenty of Quests and rewards.
Fourth Fortnite Birthday event start date and time
This special Fortnite Birthday event will kick off on September 24, 2021, at 6 AM PT / 9 AM ET / 2 PM BST, coming via an update that will be available to download on the day.
Fittingly, the Fortnite Birthday event festivities will last for four days, ending on September 28, 2021. The game’s official birthday is in the middle of the event on September 26.
Throughout the Fortnite Birthday event, players will be able to spot birthday cakes scattered around the island. Eating these baked goods will offer valuable health and shield boosts.
Birthday presents will also be returning from last year. These can be thrown onto the ground and contain rare loot.
Fourth Fortnite Birthday Quests & rewards
As part of the celebrations, players will have the chance to complete themed Quests to earn birthday rewards and XP.
These will also go live when the event starts, on September 24, 2021, at 6 AM PT / 9 AM ET / 2 PM BST.
Among the rewards will be the “4 Me???” Back Bling, “Hooplah Hammer“ Pickaxe, and “4? Score!” Emoticon.
Epic is yet to confirm what the birthday-themed Quests will entail, but be sure to check back here for the latest updates.
That was everything we know so far about the Fourth Fortnite Birthday event. We’ll have to wait and see if Epic has anything else planned for the big day.
