Media

Get ready to suit up and hit the battlefield, Fortnite fans! The latest Patch 28.20, released on February 7, 2024, has delivered a hefty dose of excitement with the arrival of the “Cowabunga” event featuring none other than the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!

This thrilling update isn’t just throwing a couple of pizza slices your way—it’s packed with heroic new content inspired by the daring escapades of our favorite shell-backed warriors. Avid players can brace themselves for fantastic new skins such as the wise Master Splinter and the menacing Shredder, along with his even more intimidating variant, Super Shredder. These skins are ready to bring the fight from the sewers to your screen, carrying the epic essence of the Ninja Turtles right into Fortnite.

But how exactly can you get your hands on these awesome skins? Most of them, including Splinter and Shredder, will be up for grabs in the Fortnite store, purchasable with V-Bucks. Keep a special lookout for Super Shredder, though; this supreme skin is an exclusive treat only available through the event’s paid mini battle pass.

The good news doesn’t stop there! Along with the nifty new skins, Fortnite’s Cowabunga event introduces a mini battle pass you can buy with V-Bucks. This isn’t just any pass—it’s a treasure map to both free and paid themed rewards, leading you on exciting missions to nab awesome items such as Leo’s Ninja Stance Gesture, a graffiti Krang Maniac, and even Ninja Turtles Pizza Backpacks. But the real jewel in this Cowabunga crown? The Super Shredder skin, which sets you apart as a player who has truly conquered the sewers… I mean, the battlegrounds.

And if you help yourself to this mini pass, you’ll unlock the chance to earn event points by completing event missions, letting you march up the ranks for even more exclusive loot. Whether it’s the Shredder’s Cape Backpacking Accessory, Donnie’s Ninja Posture Gesture, or the shell-shocked Turtle Shell Emoticon, there’s plenty for everyone who’s willing to prove their ninja skills on the battlefield.

What about the arsenal, you ask? This event also drops four mythical Turtle-worthy weapons into your eager hands. Each hero’s signature melee weapon, from Donatello’s Bo Staff to Leonardo’s Katanas, will be at your disposal. Word on the street is you might have to get hold of them by hunting down new themed supply drops shaped like the Turtles themselves—so keep your eyes peeled.

But hey, even ninjas need a pizza break. The event isn’t all about weapons and battles; it sprinkles a little fun into your fights with a Ninja Turtles twist on classic Fortnite items. Both pizza boxes and pizza slices are getting a funky, half-shell makeover to fuel you up during the Cowabunga event.

As the event unfolds, exclusive new missions will also pop up to test your mettle. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, will be to rack up XP and collect event points, which will boost your progress through the mini battle pass. Think of it as your very own Turtle-powered quest for glory—with the right mix of skills and tenacity, you’ll snag every reward from the free and paid tiers in no time.

For those who’ve been keeping up, this isn’t Fortnite’s first rodeo with such events. Just last year, Star Wars fans got a similar treatment with the “Find the Force” event. And now, the Ninja Turtles are swooping in for their turn to shine.

So when does all this kick-off? The “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” Cowabunga event begins on February 9, 2024, at 3 PM CET. No matter where you are, from Spain to Argentina or even further, you can jump in and experience the kickoff of this action-packed escapade.

To be part of this half-shelled hullabaloo, all you need to do is log into Fortnite during the event. Then, dive headfirst into a world of ninjas, notorious villains, and nostalgia-inducing fun—all while decked out in exclusive TMNT gear. This latest update serves as a reminder that Fortnite continues to be a melting pot of pop culture icons, adventures, and, of course, endless entertainment.

So, grab your favorite slice, sharpen your sai, and prepare to show the virtual world the power of “Cowabunga”!
