The first legendary quest grants you 35,000 XP with the next four granting 24,500 XP

16.50 Update


Based on recent update release dates, we can expect to see the 16.50 update be released next week on Tuesday, May 25th.

With Season 6 ending on June 8th, this could be the last update of the season unless a delay is announced.

Latest - NBA Crossover Event Confirmed

Following some skins leaking last week, Epic Games has finally confirmed that the NBA x Fortnite Crossover event is beginning today.

You are able to sign up to support your favourite team and then complete challenges to earn rewards.

That's on top of 30 packs of skins being available in the store from May 21, each based on a team's jersey.

You can check out all of the information on it, including all of the skins, here.


Season 7

Season 6 is due to end on June 8th, which will likely be the day that Season 7 begins.

So far there has been no official reveals or announcements as to what to expect from the upcoming season.

But with Fortnite being overhauled this season with the crafting mechanic, we can expect to see it expanded upon more with Season 7.

End Of Season Event

An end of season event is expected like we've seen every season since Chapter 1 Season 4.

Last season saw Agent Jones try to stop the Zero Point from sucking in the Fortnite map like it did in Chapter 1 Season X, with it instead taking us back in time.

There hasn't been many story elements implemented throughout Season 6, but hopefully we will find out more with the next event.

Batman X Fortnite Zero Point #3 Out This Week

The third issue of the new Fortnite X Batman Zero Point comic book series is due to be released on Wednesday, May 20th.
