Island hopping Fortnite: Explore new community maps for brightly colored items
How does island hopping work? In the new No Sweat Summer event quest line, you’ll be treated to a new playlist of community maps and custom games. Each of the maps was specially built by fans for the Fortnite summer events and has received its own orders from Epic Games. The more maps you play and the more quests you complete, the better rewards you get.
What rewards are there? If you want your own equipment to be colorful, or if you like the colorful overload of RGB hardware in the PC, you should not miss the rewards from island hopping in Fortnite. There are new spray motifs, emoticons, even a pickaxe and a back accessory for the orders. All of it is in bright rainbow colors, like looking through a thermal imaging camera. You can collect these six rewards when you go island hopping:
- A completed order: Tropical Infrared Spray and Infrared GG Emoticon
- Three completed missions: Tropical Infrared Wrap and Tropical Infrared Devastation Spray
- Six completed missions: Macaw Darkwing Backbling and Tropical Beak Pickaxe

So you get two rewards for every milestone you reach. You’ll have to do a little digging to unlock the Tropical Beak pickaxe and the Macaw Darkwing back accessory. Thankfully, you won’t have to grind like a Fortnite player who hit level 400 in 7 days. There are six quests to complete while island hopping – this means that you must tackle the quest of each new map in the playlist. Let’s take a look at the new maps and their missions.
Island hopping Fortnite: Six new orders and maps – you have to do that
What jobs do I have to do? Each of the six maps in Fortnite’s island hopping has its own quest that you must complete to complete the milestones. In the survival map “One trigger, 100 days” you should collect resources, in the parkour universe and the color hunt you should unlock achievements. In Zeppelin Skirmish vending machines want to be used, in object hunting you have to show a good eye and eliminate three object opponents and in Mysterious Murders you have the choice of collecting coins or carrying out melee eliminations.
