Fortnite Covert Ops is a special in-game event scheduled to run from the end of April to the beginning of May. Fortnite players will need to enter the Zero Build playlists and complete multi-stage missions to satisfy time-sensitive Quests. Those talented enough to complete all of the Fortnite Covert Ops Quests before time runs out will secure exclusive rewards like the Secret Sledge Pickaxe.

Fortnite Covert Ops Explained

Fortnite Covert Ops begins on April 22 at 2pm (BST). Covert Ops revolves around helping The Origin complete an undercover operation in the Zero Build playlists.

Every few days, you'll be assigned a new Covert Ops Quest. You will need to finish both stages of a Covert Ops Challenge to move on to the next Quest. But there's a catch: if you don't complete a Covert Ops Quest before a new one goes live, you'll lose access to the entire Covert Ops event.

Those that make it through all of the Covert Ops Quests will net loads of XP and an exclusive Pickaxe.

Fortnite Covert Ops: Tips And Tricks

fortnite-covert-ops-the-origin

You will have a few days to complete each Covert Ops Quest. You MUST complete both stages of a Covert Ops Quest to access the next Quest.

Stage 1 of all four Cover Ops Challenges involves establishing Device Uplinks at select Fortnite points of interest. Reference our guide on the Fortnite establish Device Uplink mission to learn more about where and how to establish Device Uplinks.

A couple of the Stage 2 sections are rather easy, like destroying structures with Fortnite Tanks, but others, like collecting compromised Intel from IO Outposts and planting timed explosives at an IO Airship, Command Cavern, or The Fortress will require more effort. Be on the lookout for more information on these trickier tasks as we progress through the Covert Ops event.

Remember, you'll only get credit for Covert Ops Quests in the Zero Build playlists.

Fortnite Covert Ops: Rewards 

Completing a Fortnite Covert Ops Quest will earn you 30k XP toward your Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 Battle Pass and Season Level, as well as grant you access to the next Covert Ops Challenge.

Complete all of the Covert Ops Quests before time runs out on May 2 at 1:59pm to unlock the Secret Sledge Pickaxe.

That concludes our comprehensive summary of Fortnite Covert Ops. Starting April 22 at 2pm (BST), complete Covert Ops Quests to unlock bundles of XP and the Secret Sledge Pickaxe.
