The current schedule is it'll last all Summer, so prepare to see the flooded map for several months.

Let's go over what we know so far about the event.

What Is It?

Fortnite's Summer Splash event is a concept that was implemented last year during Season 9.

This was a string of two weeks when all Epic Games employees took their Summer breaks, so with no one in the office they planned 14 days of content.

Each day consisted of brand new challenges, LTM's, a one day weapon unvaulting and new cosmetics in the item shop.

Similar to Winterfest, this event was one of the best Epic has ever pulled off!

Rewards

As noted above, we expect some free rewards to become available to players similar to last year.

Last year we were able to unlock the Peely Smoothie backbling and a few other rewards!

Skins

Players can expect new skins in the item shop everyday, and all of them will have a Summer spin similar to last year!

LTM's

Although we have seen a lack of LTM's over the last couple of seasons, we expect this to change in the coming weeks.

Who knows what kind of wacky modes Epic has up their sleeves.

New Weapons

Hopefully, Epic unvaults one weapon for 24 hours once again. This was one of the best features from last year.
