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 Season 6’s second Wild Week is here and it puts a major emphasis on fishing. Grab a rob and gear up for the Fish Fiesta.

Fortnite Season 6’s second Wild Week has started, and it’s putting a huge emphasis on fishing. Fishing can be a great way to get healing items and weapons, and the Fish Fiesta Wild Week will make it easier than ever.
The first Wild Week started during Season 6 week 8. It put a heavy emphasis on flammable weaponry and introduced the Flare Gun back into the loot pool. While also challenging players to destroy hundreds of structures with fire, it also forced players to use hard mats over wood.
Now, wild week two is here and it’s not nearly as destructive. The Flare Gun has been removed, Flame Bows aren’t as prevalent, and Firefly Jars have been taken out of chests. On the surface, Fish Fiesta Wild Week might seem tame compared to last week. However, the buffs to fishing will change how Fortnite is played for the next week.
Fish Fiesta Wild Week bonuses
The Fish Fiesta Wild Week makes several changes to emphasize fishing. The first is increasing the Fishing Spot spawn rate making them more prevalent. Fishing spots also have a minimum of 3 catches before closing and a maximum of 6.

Players are more likely to catch fish from Fishing Spots than anything else, and Rare fish are more likely to be caught. Weapons from Fishing Spots will only be Rare rarity or greater. And players don’t have to worry about Fishing Spots giving them ammo instead of something more valuable.
Lastly, Pro Rods will spawn more frequently from barrels and chests. This will allow players to catch even better loot from open waters and fishing holes. When taking a closer look at fishing week, this could have a major impact on gameplay.
The best way to get loot before Fish Fiesta Wild Week was by entering buildings and opening chests. However, with the increased rarity of weapons and heals, fishing is king for the next seven days. There’s no chance of getting grey or green weapons from fishing spots, and the healing fish are much faster than potions or bandages.
Players should expect hot drop locations to change from Pleasant Park and Retail Row to more aquatic destinations like Sweaty Sands, Lazy Lake, and Dirty Docks. It’s time to grab a pole, get fishing, and gear up.

Epic Games has announced that another member of the Teen Titans, Beast Boy, will be coming to Fortnite. Players can earn exclusive Beast Boy and Raven cosmetics by competing in an upcoming tournament.
Beast Boy and Raven are long-standing members of the DC superhero group the Teen Titans. Raven was revealed to be in Fortnite at the start of Chapter 2 Season 6. She can be unlocked as a playable character by reaching tier 72 of this season’s Battle Pass.
The appearance of Batman and several other DC characters has also been a large focus of Season 6. Now, a couple of members of the Teen Titans are being highlighted as Beast Boy enters the mix. Fortnite teased his appearance through a series of comic panels and has officially revealed his cosmetic set.
Earning Beast Boy & Raven cosmetics
Just like Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 4, Beast Boy’s cosmetic set is up for grabs as a part of an upcoming tournament. However, there are other rewards that don’t require a top-placing position to earn. There are also exclusive rewards that can only be obtained by participating in the tourney.

The Teen Titans Cup is a Duos tournament set to take place on May 12. Players who participate in the tourney will earn the Raven Spray. Players who earn 8 points of more will unlock the BBRae Loading Screen. And the top placing teams will be rewarded with the Beast Boy Outfit and Couch Titan Back Bling.
For those who don’t manage to come out on top, there’s still a way to get the Beast Boy set. While the loading screen and spray are exclusive to the tourney, the Beast Boy set will be for sale in the Item Shop on May 13.
The Beast Boy skin comes with two styles and a built-in emote. The set also includes the BB’s Beast Bat pickaxe which can only be obtained by purchasing it in the item shop. All three items can be purchased as a discounted bundle once the cosmetics release.

Prop Hunt has long been part of collective gaming culture. The mode has finally arrived in Fortnite and it looks to be a whole lot of fun!
Due to some mishaps on the part of Epic, Fortnite has been suffering some negative strides. In order to switch things back around, the devs need a successive streak of victories.

Prop Hunt has been a much asked for ‘just for fun’ mode and Epic is now delivering. This, along with great v9.30 changes, could really bring back a lot of excitement for Fortnite!
Prop Hunt playable now in Fortnite
Fortnite’s Creative mode is a stirring pot of creative genius and remarkable talents. For the lucky few chosen by Epic, the creations made in Creative become legendary adventures played by millions.
Prop Hunt has been brought to life by a team of talented Creative creators. The team at StrayKite managed to create a replica of the classic experience that plays like a dream.
The mode is available to play now in Creative & Playground lobbies.
The basic rules of Prop Hunt are as follows:
- Props are given a set amount of time to hide before Seekers try to find them
- Each Prop can switch between differing objects a certain amount of times
- Seekers try to find all the Props before the time limit is reached. If they manage to do so, the Seekers win.
- If all Props are not found, the Props win.
Epic Games has not given any end-date for the Prop Hunt island feature, but the prop hunt mode can always be played from here on out. This can be done by using the Island Code provided by Epic (6069-9263-9110).
Using the Creative mode’s configuration settings, you can also create custom Prop Hunt game types. This includes longer Seeker time limits, stricter win conditions, banned props, and more. More options will be added for the mode in the future.
