Hearts Wild: Lots to Love in Fortnite for Valentine’s Season
UPDATE (February 10, 2021)
Players who complete any of the Hearts Wild-themed Quests will earn the Breathless Blades Pickaxe at the conclusion of Chapter 2 Season 5. Because these Quests are “Epic” Season 5 Weekly Quests, they'll be available all through the rest of the Season! (Players will still have the opportunity to earn The Breathless Blades Pickaxe through the Hearts Wild Team Battles, which you can read about below. The Pickaxe will be granted to winners shortly after the Team Battle’s conclusion.)
There’s a lot in the cards for Valentine’s this year. Fortnite’s Hearts Wild event kicks off today, February 8, 2021, so let your heart run free with the many happenings going on this week: a tournament, Creator Challenges, the return of papercraft, lovely new Outfits in the Item Shop, and more!
Fight for Love in the Hearts Wild Cup to Earn the Lovely Outfit Early
Hearts will flutter at the chance to earn the Lovely Outfit before it hits the Item Shop. Whether you’re a couple or just any dynamic duo, assemble your Duos team for the Hearts Wild Cup on February 9, 2021. You and your Duos partner will have 3 hours to complete up to 10 matches to earn points. The top-performing Duos in each server region will earn the Lovely Outfit and Heartblast Back Bling.
In order to participate, players must have their account level at 30 or above and have 2FA enabled. To enable 2FA, players must visit our 2FA page, log into their Epic account, and follow the onscreen instructions. Read the Hearts Wild Cup official rules for a full breakdown of the tournament format, rewards, and participation requirements. Specific timing for your region can be found in the Compete tab in-game.
Put Your Heart into It: Win In-Game Rewards with Team Battles
Community Battles returns for Hearts Wild with a new event: Hearts Wild Team Battles. Between February 10-17, 2021, Fortnite players will have an opportunity to team up with their favorite Creators to help them earn points in unique Challenges.
By placing highly enough, participants competing against other teams within their regional group can win in-game rewards:

These Quests will also have you help Big Chuggus and Lovely spread the spirit of love on the Island.
Look Lovely with New and Returning Outfits
New Outfits will make their debut in the Item Shop throughout Hearts Wild, including the bursting-with-love Lovely and Cuddle Team Leader’s #1 fan Cuddle King. Outfits from years past, like the tough-loving Lovethorn, will be making their way to the Item shop as well!
Show love in spades this week in Fortnite!
