Here’s everything you need to know about the TMNT collab in Fortnite, from its release date to the new skins and Mythic weapons being added, quests, and more.

TMNT Fortnite event start time

The Fortnite x TMNT collab is set to start on Friday, February 9, at 2pm UK Time / 9am ET, and this is when the event countdown will reach zero.

Once the event starts, expect a slew of TMNT-themed quests and rewards added to the game.

We don’t know what these quests and rewards will be yet, but we will keep you posted as they are revealed.

TMNT Shredder and Splinter Fortnite skins

The Shredder skin is set to be the highlight of this TMNT collab, and the turtles’ arch-nemesis is getting two skin variants.

One is based on Shredder’s regular appearance in comic books, and the other is Super Shredder, his mutated empowered version that first appeared in 1991’s film TMNT II.

TMNT fans are also getting a Master Splinter skin, based on the turtles’ wise mutant rat mentor.

The new skins will be available both in Fortnite Battle Royale and as Lego minifigures for Lego Fortnite.

It is unclear how much these skins will cost and what will be needed to unlock them.

Leaks have suggested that there will be a TMNT event pass for Shredder’s skins, while Splinter will be added to the Item Shop.

Previously released skins of the turtles and April O’Neil are also expected to make their return to the Item Shop during the event.

Fortnite TMNT Mythics

The Fortnite x TMNT collab will also add four new Mythic weapons with Dash and Attack abilities.

The Mythic weapons that are expected for the event, unsurprisingly, are:

  • Leonardo’s Katana
  • Donatello’s Staff
  • Raphael’s Sai
  • Michelangelo’s Nunchucks

Fortnite TMNT POI, Hoverboard, and more

The map is getting a new point of interest called Turtle Lair, which has also leaked as one of the additions coming as part of the TMNT event.

A new vehicle based on the turtles’ iconic hoverboard will also be added to the game, with a chance to spawn at random spots in the game.

The update will also add a purchasable quest pack, that adds more exclusive quests, giving more options to level up your Battle Pass.
