Fortnite‘S 14 Days of Summer event is live, complete with the first event, LTM and challenge.
As the name suggests, the 14 Days of Summer event lasts for two weeks on PS4, Xbox One, PC, iOS, Android and Nintendo Switch.
“Heya folks, it’s time to soak up some rays during Fortnite’s 14 Days of Summer,” reads an Epic post. “Each day, drop into Fortnite for something new.”
As part of 14 Days of Summer, Epic will make a new or returning LTM available to play for each day of the event.
New items and skins will be available from the in-game shop, but perhaps most exciting of all is Epic’s plan to unvault a weapon every day.
The only drawback is that these weapons will only be available for 24-hours before returning to the vault.
As an added bonus, there’s even a daily challenge to complete, which will net players a special reward.
The first challenge tasks players with dancing at six different beach parties across the map.
To make it easy for fans, Express Online has marked the locations of the beach parties on the map above.
One of the beach parties can be found on the north-west corner of Loot Lake, while another is south-east of Tilted.
Two beach parties can be found in the desert biome near Paradise Palms, another is in Dusty Divot and a final beach party is located in the northern point of Lazy Lagoon.
You’ll have to dance at six in total, although this doesn’t have to be completed in the same game.
Successfully completing the challenge unlocks the Deep End emote, so it’s worth doing.
The first 14 Days of Summer LTM is Splashdown Squads, while the unvaulted weapon is the Light Machine gun.
