Fortnite New Years Event 2020 / 2021: When and what time is the new years event

Here’s everything you need to know about the Fortnite new years event to end 2020 and celebrate 2021.

Epic Games released the Fortnite Christmas event, Operation Snowdown, two weeks ago. Players have been able to get two free Fortnite skins, Snowmando and Frost Squad, as well as a handful of other cosmetics including back blings, loading screens, wraps, gliders, pickaxes and more.

The rewards for the Christmas events towards the new year are always themed for the new year. Yesterday, players could unlock the confetti new years-themed wrap by stoking a campfire two times.

Although there aren’t any new challenges for the Fortnite new years, Epic Games always add in a small Fortnite event to celebrate the new year. It’s pretty much identical each year with the obvious change to the year that’s displayed at the end. Here’s everything you need to know about the Fortnite new years event for the end of 2020.

Fortnite New Years Event 2021 Time

If you’re wondering when the Fortnite new years event is, it happens every hour leading up to 2021. When it’s a new hour, the Fortnite new years event for 2021 will begin. You’ll see a disco ball emerge from the sky, a bunch of fireworks will go off, and you’ll be forced to dance.

It does get quite frustrating when you’re in the middle of a battle, but you’re forced to dance for 10 seconds or more while the Fortnite new years event happens. You won’t be able to use your weapons or pickaxe during the event. There is a countdown in the sky before it takes place along with a sound queue, so hopefully it’ll give you enough warning you’re about to dance your way into the new year.

Here’s some images of the Fortnite new years event for 2021:

Fortnite Buried Blue Coin Location: Where and how to find the buried blue coin in Retail Row

Here’s the location of where to find the buried blue coin in Fortnite for the ‘find the buried blue coin in Retail Row’ week 5 challenge.

Yesterday was the release of the final Fortnite Operation Snowdown challenge. The Christmas event this year has provided two free skins and a host of other cosmetics including the Confetti Wrap that was available yesterday once players completed the ‘stoke a campfire’ challenge.

The challenges also provided players with 10,000 XP, providing players with another way to level up as quickly as possible this season. There’s no XP coins this season, so any additional XP will help players in the long run.

As provided by the challenge name, players can find the buried blue coin in Retail Row. Thankfully, there’s not too much guess work when it comes to finding the Fortnite buried blue coin in Retail Row thanks to the mud pile that indicates where the buried blue coin is located.

You can find the buried blue coin in Retail Row on the west side of the popular named location. You’ll find the Fortnite buried blue coin on the west side of the yellow house near the basketball hoop. Here’s the exact location where you’ll find it.

We’ll update this with the other locations when the challenge is released and we look around Fort Crumpet.

From the location above, head north. You’ll find a gnome near the Christmas tree in the corner as shown below.
