Fortnite has teamed up with Rocket League for a massive ‘Llama-Rama’ crossover event and players can earn some brand new cosmetics for the battle royale title. Here’s everything you’ll need to know.

Epic Games announced that the Llama-Rama event would be crossing over with Fortnite on September 26, in celebration of Rocket League becoming a free-to-play title.

Along with the new event, it was revealed this highly-anticipated crossover would allow players to pick up exclusive rewards for both titles by completing some in-game challenges.

Fortnite players can unlock Rocket League themed cosmetic items – but there’s a twist!

Many Fortnite players will be looking to claim these new cosmetic items, however, the tasks needed to unlock them can only be completed in Rocket League.

The Rocket League challenges, which have already been revealed, are fairly straightforward, with one task simply requiring you to “play an online match” to earn a Fortnite reward.

Here’s what you’ll need to do to earn each of these Rocket League rewards.

How to claim Rocket League rewards in Fortnite

  1. Download Rocket League for free, if you don’t have it already.
  2. You’ll then need to load up the game and complete each of the Rocket League tasks, which can be found below.
  3. After completing the challenges, you’ll simply need to log into Fortnite.
  4. From there, you should be able to find the Rocket League-themed items in your Locker.

As your Epic Games account is connected to both Rocket League and Fortnite, it will register the challenges automatically, meaning you won’t have to manually claim the items after each task.

How to complete Rocket League’s Fortnite challenges

  • Play an online match in any playlist.
  • Win one online match in casual with the Llama Antenna.
  • Get 5 goals, saves, or assists with the Llama Topper.
  • Win 5 online matches in any playlist with the Llama Decal.
  • Get MVP in any online match with the Llama Wheels.

Once you finish each of these challenges, you should have access to all the new cosmetics in Fortnite, which include a new Contrail, Backbling, Emote, and more.

Although these items can only be unlocked in Rocket League, Fortnite is also celebrating its third birthday and players can earn even more rewards from the Birthday Bash challenges.

How to compete in Fortnite’s first Box Fight Tournament: date, prizes

Fortnite is about to launch its first-ever Box Fight Tournament, a creative 1v1 competition in an arena designed by winners of last month’s Princess Castle Creative Contest. If you’re interested in competing, here’s everything you need to know.

Fortnite is a competitive game at heart, but it’s also a wonderful platform for creative players. It’s the reason why the creative mode is so popular. Players can build their own islands and share them with others.

Last month, Fortnite celebrated its third birthday by hosting the Princess Castle Creative Contest. Essentially, players had to create and submit their own version of a Box Fight map.

For those who don’t know, Box Fighting is when two players are fighting within one tile of each other and inside a box. It’s unique in the sense that it combines competitive and creative skills.

Two players named HassanFTN and Shride won the contest. Their arena, named “Island of Dreams” (9005-6737-3429), was chosen to be showcased in the first official Box Fight Tournament.

The map used in the Box Fight Tournament was created by two winners of the Princess Castle Creative Contest.

How to compete in the Box Fight Tournament

To compete in the Box Fight Tournament, all you need to do is look for the Box Fight Tournament LTM on the main menu once it’s available.

However, there is an eligibility requirement. Players will need to have reached Open League (Division II) in Arena before the tournament begins. Don’t stress if you haven’t though. It’s very easy to do and will only take a couple of games.

The format is pretty straightforward. Players will duke it out in a one on one Box Fight against other players in their region.

It will follow a traditional tournament structure with multiple rounds. The more rounds you win, the higher you will climb. The player with the most wins at the end of the tournament is the winner.

Box Fighting requires calculated attacks and solid defense.

When does the Box Fight Tournament start?

Fortnite players don’t need to wait long. The Box Fight Tournament begins on Wednesday, October 28, which means it’s only one sleep away.

However, that also means if you haven’t ranked up enough in Arena to be eligible, you’ll need to hop in and get started before it’s too late.

Box Fighting is an important skill in Fortnite. In many ways, it’s what separates the wolves from the sheep.

If you’ve mastered it, the tournament is a good way to test your skills. Don’t be disheartened if you haven’t though. Taking part in the tournament is a good way to improve.
