Cowabunga Begins - Use TMNT Powers in Fortnite BR!

The Fortnite Team

Winterfest was just the beginning. Now, the real battle begins — the Turtles return in Fortnite Battle Royale’s Cowabunga to confront their nemesis Shredder. Cowabunga begins now in the Fortnite Battle Royale v28.20 Feb 9 hotfix! Take up weapons like Leonardo's Katanas and Michelangelo's Nunchaku while unlocking TMNT-themed rewards in-game. Cowabunga runs until February 27, 2024, at 9 AM ET!

Come out of your shell with the weapons and returning Driftboard and Pizza Party, all while completing Cowabunga Quests to earn Ooze. The more Ooze you get, the more you’ll progress in Cowabunga’s free reward track! The final reward of this track is one of Donnie’s most ingenious inventions: the Turtle Blimp Glider

If you purchase Cowabunga’s Premium Reward Track upgrade, you’ll automatically unlock the Shredder Outfit. The Premium Reward Track is an extra layer of rewards you can unlock at the same rate as the free reward track. Enhanced by the power of the same mutagen that gave the Turtles life, the Super Shredder Outfit is the final reward of this track. Fan of LEGO® Fortnite? Both Shredder and Super Shredder have a LEGO Style!

Unleash Your Turtle Power

Fortnite TMNT Weapons

Whether you’re wielding Leonardo's Katanas, Raphael’s Sai, Michelangelo's Nunchaku, or Donatello's Staff, you’ll have the same four abilities (with slightly different stats depending on the weapon):

  • Attack: Hold the primary fire button to swing, swing, and keep swinging.

  • Air Attack: Press the primary fire button in-air for a devastating air attack. 

  • Dash Attack: Press the secondary fire button to charge with your weapon.

  • Double Jump: With one of the weapons equipped, jump while you’re already in the air!

All four weapons have three charges, with each charge returning after ten seconds. Charges are used for the Air Attack and Dash Attack. Find these weapons from Chests, Supply Drops, and vending machines!

It’s Turtle Time!

Fighting’s for if you got no other choice, 180s and pizza are for all the time. TMNT-ified Driftboards are on the Island waiting for you to ride on! See what stunts you can pull off before enjoying a pipin’ hot Pizza Party box.

Need a refresher on what fresh pizza can do? Pizza Party boxes have eight righteous slices of pizza to share with your team or eat all by yourself. Each slice restores Health and Shield simultaneously, with the Shield cap being 100. Find Pizza Party boxes from the ground, Chests, and for sale from Splinter in exchange for Bars!

Forgiveness is divine but this pizza’s on-time.

Cowabunga Quests

Traveling through the Island’s sewer pipes? Buying Raphael’s Sai from a vending machine? Congrats, you’re completing Cowabunga Quests at the same time! Cowabunga Quests award you Ooze for completing certain objectives, and the more Ooze you earn, the more in-game rewards you’ll unlock! Go to the Cowabunga tab in the Lobby to keep track of your Ooze and remaining rewards. (Tip: there are also Quests for earning XP in creator-made islands!)
