After many Fortnite players were shocked to find the 14 Days of Fortnite event had ended earlier than expected, Epic Games has now announced compensation for those who missed out on the final reward.
Each day of the 14 Days of Fortnite holiday event brought new challenges and rewards for players to obtain, with the final one being the Equalizer Glider as a way to ring in the new year.
Early on in the event, it was announced that the challenges would be available until January 3 or 4 to give players some extra time to complete the challenges.
Upon logging in on January 2, however, players quickly noticed that the challenges were all gone, meaning that many missed out on the final reward.
To compensate for this oversight, Epic Games has announced that anyone who completed at least one challenge during the event will be granted the Equalizer Glider.

To make up for this, players that completed at least one 14 Days Event Challenge will be granted the Equalizer Glider. Eligible players will begin receiving theirs in the near future.
There's no official date as to when players will receive the items, with Epic Games simply announcing that they would come in the "near future."
Regardless of when players finally receive the items, they will surely be happy to pick up one of the most sought after items of the entire event.
In the meantime, players can also look forward to the recently announced v7.10 content update #3 that's set to go live on January 8.

While there's no official confirmation on what we'll see in the update, it's expected that we'll see the delayed Driftboard or leaked Machine Pistol once it finally goes live.
