Fortnite has unveiled a limited-time Spring Breakout event with Easter-themed quests, cosmetic items, and rewards. This event arrives amidst an already bustling season, as Fortnite recently introduced the Mega season, which introduced a futuristic metropolis known as Mega City.
Mega City has introduced numerous fresh features like vehicles, weapons, and a grind rail system, such as the powerful Fortnite Kinetic Blade. The game’s developers, Epic Games, constantly update the game and its content as a live service to retain player interest. While new battle pass content is released during seasonal transitions, Epic Games heavily relies on limited-time events and crossovers to keep the game engaging.
Most recently, the game featured a crossover event with Attack on Titan’s Eren Jaeger, and a new limited-time event has been introduced to mark the end of winter. Epic Games’ approach of offering diverse and time-limited content ensures the game remains dynamic and captivating for its players.
To keep players engaged, Epic Games has returned to the Spring Breakout event for 2023 as part of Fortnite’s 24.10 updates. This event features the reappearance of the Egg Launcher, which had been previously removed from the game, and players can now find it in different locations, such as chests, supply drops, and NPCs.

Furthermore, Fortnite has received new Reality Augments, which enable players to employ NPC specialists with distinct roles like scouts, medics, explosives experts, and supply specialists. These updates add a new level of strategy and gameplay depth to the Fortnite experience.
The Spring Breakout event in Fortnite has much to offer players, including new quests that provide XP rewards and unlock special items in the Locker. Each day brings new challenges that allow players to earn unique rewards, like the Bloomback Sack Back Bling, Shell Smash Spray, The Works loading screen, and a Spring Breakout banner icon on specific days.
Additionally, players can receive exclusive gear by completing a particular number of challenges, such as the Nannerbloom Hammer Pickaxe for finishing 12 challenges and the Fresh Flyer Glider for completing 22.
For many Fortnite enthusiasts, the allure of the Spring Breakout event lies in the chance to earn rewards by completing various challenges and quests. These incentives provide a compelling reason for players to log in to the game daily and accumulate XP, which can help them progress through Fortnite’s Chapter 4 Season 2 battle pass and unlock multiple skins.
The recent 24.10 patch notes for Fortnite’s Spring Breakout update outline a range of new features and items for the event.
One noteworthy addition is the return of previously vaulted weapons, including the Egg Launcher, Charge Shotgun, and Flintknock Pistol. Five characters now have Super Level Style Outfits and three new back bling designs. The Chicken and Eggs update introduces various new items, such as Heal Eggs that gradually restore health and shield, Hop Eggs that offer a low gravity effect and boost health, and Golden Eggs that cannot be consumed but provides Bars when interacted with. Reality augments have also been added, including Aquatic Warrior for increased swimming speed and health regeneration, Go For Broke for access to the Charge Shotgun and Flintknock Pistol and Rail Warrior for healing on Grind Rails or Ziplines. Other augments include Springtime Blowout for the Egg Launcher, Game Time for a Pizza Party, and Chug Splash.
The Fortnite game has recently undergone significant changes, including renaming the Collection Tab to the “Characters” tab. The updated bill now features a map showing the locations of all characters on the island, with information on their services and costs.
Players can also now adjust building and editing structure sensitivity settings to match their preferences when using a mouse and keyboard.
Other updates include the improved handling of the Rogue Bike vehicle, reduced energy usage on PlayStation and Xbox consoles, and bug fixes related to the installation of Save the World, Knockback Slash, and interaction buttons for grind rails. While the Spring Breakout event introduced new items such as chickens, eggs, and Egg launchers, these items are not allowed in competitive playlists.
The update also re-enables ziplines in Party Royale, fixes the frame rate issue on some mobile devices, and features several competitive events like the Zero Build Cups, Duos Cash Cups, and Victory Cups.
