Fortnite NBA event leaked

Epic Games added soccer players as NPCs in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 6, and now seem to be focusing on basketball, as some new leaks are pointing towards an upcoming crossover event with the NBA.

Fortnite’s March 30 update brought soccer players to the battle royale as part of the Neymar Jr. challenges that you can complete unlocking the popular player as a skin. Now, the developers might shift their focus towards another sport.

Some new leaks have emerged which suggest that Epic Games are planning to collaborate with the NBA for a basketball-themed event within the battle royale. Here’s everything we know about this so far.

NBA and Fortnite crossover

This information came from notable Fortnite data miner Shook, who posted details about this event in the FortniteLeaks subreddit. According to the leaker, the event will start at 8 a.m ET on May 12, 2021.

You’ll get to support one out of thirty NBA teams by tackling various daily quests when Team Battles are released. These tasks include eliminations and spending minutes in the game, with each one netting you points for your chosen team.

The top players will win the following rewards:

  • 1st place: 500 V-bucks + NBA Championship Back Bling
  • 2nd place: 300 V-bucks
  • 3rd place: 100 V-bucks

Even if you don’t get first place in the Fortnite NBA event, you’ll be able to purchase the NBA Championship Back Bling in the Item Shop when it arrives there in the future. Completing three of the daily quests will get you Grand Champion Spray.

There was also another leaked reward for the Fortnite NBA event. “Prior to this, the “Hookshot” toy was leaked,” Shook wrote. “It can no longer be found on the website so maybe scrapped or earnable through another method.”

We currently don’t know if any NBA-themed skins will be coming to the Fortnite NBA event because the promotional image didn’t show any. That would be a missed opportunity, as players might enjoy playing as Lebron James and other stars.

Keep in mind that these are leaks, and nothing official regarding a Fortnite NBA event has been announced by Epic Games yet. We’ll keep checking for updates and will inform you once we learn something new.

One of the new additions to the battle royale is the Fortnite Donation Boards. These have been popping up around the Island, and this guide will cover everything you need to know about them, including their locations.

What Are Donation Boards in Fortnite?

The Donation Boards on Fortnite Island look like any regular boards with flyers on them. Once you interact with them, you’ll get a chance to decide which item should be brought to the map.

You can donate 50 Gold Bars towards whichever item you want to see as future loot, with the first item to hit 100% Funded becoming immediately unlocked and ready for use.

There are plenty of unique weapons to choose from in Fortnite Season 8. These include the new Sideways weapons and the few Exotic Weapons currently left in the battle royale.

By donating to these boards, you have the rare opportunity to decide which of these fantastic weapons can become easily accessible to you the next time you hop into a match of Fortnite.

Donation Boards are mainly located next to POIs on the map. You can currently find a total of 12 scattered around Fortnite Island, and you can often find Turret Boards right next to them.

Once you get to one of these, you’ll have the chance to decide which weapon makes its way to Fortnite Island. This gives you more control over the Battle Royale than before.

Be sure to cast your vote when you come across one of these. For more Fortnite, stay tuned to Charlie INTEL and check out the Gold Cube location and travel path in Fortnite Season 8.

Armored Walls in Fortnite Season 8

Fortnite Season 8 has included a brand-new Trap item to the game, with Armored Walls making your structures much more powerful. Here’s how to find and use this new defensive item.

Following the news that Fortnite will be crossing over with designer fashion house Balenciaga, Epic Games has brought even more content with the September 21 hotfix. In this small update, they’ve announced a Fourth Birthday event, given players the chance to unvault an item, and added a new Trap.

The Armored Walls Trap covers builds in thick metal plating, giving “any building piece a whole bunch more HP.”

Here’s how to find and use this powerful new item.

Armored Walls Trap in Fortnite Season 8

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:

  1. Build or approach one of your walls in Fortnite
  2. Have the Armored Walls trap at the ready
  3. 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.

Fortnite birthday cake and present

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.

Fortnite has evolved a lot in the last four years, popularising features like the Battle Pass along the way.

So, to celebrate, Epic is launching a Fourth Fortnite Birthday event for players to dive into, packed with plenty of Quests and rewards.

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.
