St. Patrick’s Day is on March 17 and it looks like Fortnite is starting the festivities early by adding rainbows into the game.
Fortnite has shown a tendency to celebrate various holidays as they happen and the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day is no different.
St. Patrick’s Day is an Irish holiday and is commonly associated with leprechauns. Fortnite looks to be hinted at an upcoming event on the actual St. Patrick’s Day, by adding rainbows into the game.
Classic Battle Royale with a St. Paddy's day twist – all loot from chests is Uncommon (Green)! Only the Buried Treasure item provides rarer loot.

It looks like reports have started coming in of rainbows appearing in Fortnite very recently. We do know Epic Games has something planned for St. Patrick’s Day if the leaks are anything to go by.
Dataminers have revealed a new LTM coming called ‘All Green’ which will be available in the solo, duos and squads playlists. All of the loot in the game will be green with the exception of Treasure Map loot.
The rainbows are probably being added in as a way to build hype for the event because Fortnite manages to always tell a story without having an actual storyline.
If the datamine is true, then we can look for the ‘All Green’ event to kick off sometime tomorrow, March 17.

When Tfue and Cloak first noticed the rainbow they couldn’t actually remember if it was new or not.
“Was that rainbow always there?” asked Cloak. “Hell no, that shit wasn’t always there,” responded Tfue after he saw it for the first time.
Then the two finally came to the conclusion that Fortnite is likely gearing up for the St. Patricks Day event.
