In the vibrant world of Fortnite, prepare to witness an event of epic proportions as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT) once again grace the virtual battlegrounds. The Fortnite Cowabunga event has arrived, promising a shell-shocking experience that will captivate players until the near end of Chapter 5 Season 1. Get ready to embark on a heroic journey as the Turtles' fearsome nemesis and wise mentor join the game as purchasable skins, accompanied by an array of exhilarating quests that offer both paid and free cosmetics. And that's not all! Arm yourself with the iconic melee weapons of these heroes in a half-shell through TMNT loot, as you dive headfirst into this extraordinary crossover.
But hold on to your pizza-loving hearts, dear readers, as we take you through everything you need to know about the Fortnite Cowabunga event.
The Fortnite Cowabunga event is now live, and it will continue its shell-tastic journey for several weeks, finally culminating on February 27 at 6 AM PT / 9 AM ET. Just like the Star Wars and Jiujitsu Kaisen mini-passes before it, the Cowabunga Pass emerges as an additional mini battle pass, making its grand entrance towards the end of the season, precisely today. It seems that Epic, the masterminds behind Fortnite, plans to treat us to these phenomenal events on a near-seasonal basis going forward. So gear up, dear readers, as the TMNT pass unlocks a plethora of items in both its free and paid tiers.
In the free tier, prepare to unlock a treasure trove of items, including the TMNT Pizza back bling, the rhythmic Kuro Kabuto bass guitar, the Turtle Blimp glider, and much more. But if you're ready to take your heroism to the next level, purchasing the paid tier will grant you access to an array of exclusive items. Brace yourselves, for instant access to the menacing Shredder skin shall be bestowed upon you. And that's not all! Completing the paid tier will unlock the formidable Super Shredder skin, both of which come with delightful Lego variants that will make your inner child leap with joy.
But wait, there's more! The item shop shall be graced by the presence of Splinter himself, the wise mentor and father figure to our beloved Turtles. And fear not, for April O'Neil and the Turtles themselves shall also make a triumphant return to the item shop, ensuring that no heroic ensemble is left incomplete throughout this sensational season.
Now, dear readers, let us dive into the heart of the Cowabunga event, fueled by a multitude of in-game challenges known as Quests. Conquer each quest, and you shall be rewarded with Ooze, a precious substance that unlocks a world of wonders. As you accumulate more and more Ooze, the mini-pass items shall become yours to cherish. But here's the exciting part: by amassing enough Ooze in each of the event's six phases, you will unlock the pièce de résistance, the Krang back bling. Fans of the classic TMNT cartoon will fondly remember Krang as the unforgettable talking brain. Brace yourselves for the extraordinary!
Ah, the perils of adventure! One quest in particular dares you to perform an impossibly difficult trick on a Driftboard. Fear not, for we have prepared a guide that shall shepherd you through this treacherous challenge. Prepare to defy gravity and conquer the impossible!
Ooze and pizza, dear readers, are inextricably linked to the Ninja Turtles. But what would a Cowabunga event be without their iconic weapons? Brace yourselves, for during this epic crossover, all four of the heroes' beloved melee weapons shall be available as loot in the battle royale and Zero Build modes. Picture yourself wielding the legendary:
Each weapon boasts unique stats, but all share a common set of abilities: attack, air attack, dash attack, and double jump. Just like the legendary lightsabers from Star Wars, these formidable weapons are destined to become meta-shifting instruments of victory for the duration of their availability. Keep your eyes peeled, for these treasures can be found in chests, Supply Drops, and vending machines, ensuring that no hero shall be left defenseless in this cosmic clash.
But that's not all, dear readers! Driftboards, those trusty vehicles of righteous velocity, shall be unvaulted for the Cowabunga event, sporting a radiant TMNT style. Glide through the battlefield, embodying the spirit of the Turtles themselves. And of course, what would a Ninja Turtles event be without the sacred relic of sustenance? The Pizza Party healing item makes a triumphant return, reminding us all that heroes, too, need a slice of cheesy goodness to fuel their valiant endeavors.
So there you have it, dear readers. The Fortnite Cowabunga event has arrived, bringing with it a tidal wave of Turtle Power that will leave you exhilarated and craving more. Join forces with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, their mentor Splinter, and face off against their archnemesis, Shredder. Embark on daring quests, unlock incredible rewards, wield legendary weapons, and savor the taste of victory on a piping hot slice of pizza.
Get ready to unleash your inner hero and seize the day, for the Fortnite Cowabunga event is here to ignite your gaming experience like never before. It's time to show the world that in the battle between good and evil, heroes in a half-shell always come out on top!
