The latest update in Fortnite is finally here and players can enjoy all kinds of new quests and rewards from the Spring Breakout event! If you are looking to enjoy the Easter festivities in Epic Games’ popular battle royale, keep reading to know more all about it. Here is everything new coming to Fortnite, as well as the Spring Breakout quests and what rewards you get for completing them.
Fortnite update 24.10 is now live in the game, bringing new content to Chapter 4 Season 2
Following the launch of Lantern Fest in Fortnite, the game is celebrating Easter next with the Spring Breakout event. Seen as this is the highlight of the update, there are plenty of new items and weapons for players to enjoy as they try scoring a Victory Royale on Battle Island.
Here is what you need to know about the Spring Breakout event in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2.
Egg Launchers are making their way back in the game
Keeping up with the theme of Easter and eggs, one thing we are most excited about is the Egg Launcher being unvaulted. You can obtain this weapon in a variety of ways: loot Chests, find them lying on the ground, or interact with NPCs across the Island to purchase them.
If you have already gotten your hands on one in the previous Easter celebrations, then you have an idea how this weapon works. Think of it as a Grenade Launcher, the only difference is that it launches egg projectiles.
- Egg Launchers use Rockets as its ammunition. It also does not stick to players when launched, but you can shoot it at surfaces. Once it sticks, you have to wait for a few seconds before the projectile detonates.
- This weapon is perfect for tearing down enemy towers. If a player is in its blast zone, they can get damaged. However, we highly recommend using this to destroy structures instead.
Chickens and Eggs can be found on the Island
While Spring Breakout is on-going, there are new Chickens and Eggs for players to find on the Island. By interacting with the Special Eggs left on the ground by Chickens, you can receive different types of temporary buffs.
- Green Eggs – restores a player’s Health and Shield Points over time.
- Blue Eggs – gives players a “low gravity effect” while giving Health Points.
- Golden Eggs – rewards players with Bars.
New Reality Augments and Specialist Characters are available
Another exciting update in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2 are new Reality Augments and Specialist Characters you can hire.
The new Reality Augments in this update are the following:
- Aquatic Warrior
- Game Time
- Go For Broke
- Rail Warrior
As for the Specialist Characters, you can hire them to help you get one step closer to that Victory Royale.
- Scout Specialist – pings nearby enemies and Chests. This Specialist can attack enemies at long range using their Sniper.
- Heavy Specialist – is the Tank among the Specialists as they can take more damage compared to others. This Specialist uses explosives to fight.
- Supply Specialist – assists players by dropping materials and ammo.
- Medical Specialist – can heal players using Chug Splashes to regenerate your Health and Shield Points.
