Fortnite has announced its first ever Spring event. The week-long Fortnite Spring Breakout is set to kick off today, March 30, and will bring new quests, “eggcellent new outfits, a Duos competition, papercraft, and an in-game reward” to the massively popular battle royale game.
Webster the Five Nights at Freddy’s-esque mechanical duck is to be added as a quest-giving NPC. Should players complete the first Legendary Quest from Webster when it arrives on April 1, then they will receive the Tactical Quaxes Pickaxe. This isn’t the only in-game themed item available, with the Egg Launcher making a return.
Additionally, for players hoping to make like a duck and net themselves Webster’s outfit ahead of its full release, then they can pair up for the Spring Breakout Cup on April 2. Duos “will have three hours to complete up to ten matches to earn points.” The triumphant pair in each server region will not only snag Webster’s outfit, but also the Mecha-Feathers Back Bling. Players must be level 30, and must have two-factor authentication enabled to be eligible to compete.
For those looking to get a bit arts and craftsy over the Easter period, there are also a number of papercraft masks – based on Stella, Rabbit Raider, and of course Webster – and mini foldables available to download and print out to make at home.
Flowers are blooming, the sun is out and robotic ducks and pastel-suited bunnies are on the Island… wait what?
Spring is here and #SpringBreakout is coming! There are new Items, a Duos Cup, Papercraft and even an in-game reward to earn.

This isn’t the only way to get your hands on Rabbit Raider, either, as the skin itself returns to the shop alongside Bunny Brawler and Quackling for the duration of the event. These will also be supplemented with the new skins – including Webster – when they release later this week.
