A challenge awaits Fortnite players looking to earn free prizes, including in-game rewards, a potential share of $100K USD and the chance to play with well-known content creators.
Today Epic Games announced a new event dubbed "Creative Mayhem." This Valentine's Day-themed celebration allows Fortnite players to earn a free Emoticon and Pickaxe for merely playing on the new Creative Mayhem map. What's more, those up to the challenge can submit their best deathrun time for an opportunity to play with one of seven regional creators.
ESTNN has all the information you'll need to unlock the free in-game rewards and potentially more, depending on your deathrun skills.
How to Unlock Free Emoticon & Pickaxe
Players interested in unlocking the free Emoticon and Pickaxe can do so with relative ease. To obtain the Love Reigns Emoticon, you'll need to sign up on the Creative Mayhem website. After that, the Emoticon will appear in your locker.
Next comes the free Mace of Hearts Pickaxe, which you can unlock by playing the Creative Mayhem map for 30 minutes. You'll have to determine whether the Pickaxe may never be available again after the event concludes. You can put the Creative Map code below directly into your Fortnite 'Discover' menu under 'Island Code'.
