Fortnite kicks off ’14 Days of Summer’ event today
It’s the first day of Fortnite’s summer event, which will see a whole host of new items, challenges, outfits, retired weapons and modes of play.
14 Days of Summer lasts from June 25 – July 8, and will see daily challenges, as well as new items and consumes for those willing to spend their V-Bucks accordingly.
The official Fortnite blog said there will be 14 Limited Time Modes that players can look forward to over the next two weeks, including ‘Heavy Metal Squads’ ( in which only weapons with ‘heavy’ in the name are made available) to a water balloon event called ‘Splashdown Squads’.
Elsewhere, Storm Chasers: Surfin’ puts all players in a vehicle, while ‘Tank Battle’ mode will give players extra health and shields but limits the amount of healing items in the game.
The John Wick elimination mode – Wick’s Bounty – will return, as one of several modes designed for two-player Duo teams. It’s joined by ‘Leave None Behind’ – which limits resources – and ‘Use with Care’ in which only headshots are allowed.
There’s a tonne more modes to be had, including Rumble, Loadout Swap and Arsenal – you can check out the official Fortnite blog for the complete rundown.
