Fortnite High Stakes event rewards

The High Stakes event is similar to the recent Fortnite Birthday event. This event also introduced new Fortnite challenges. High Stakes is mainly about a new temporary mode, Getaway.

The rewards for the High Stakes and Getaway event are:

  Sackboy: New trailer for the PS5 platformer, special edition only for PS4

  • Play Getaway matches (10 total, 5,000 XP) – Just play a lot of matches. Easy peasy.
  • Deal damage to a player wearing the jewels (500 total, “High Stakes” spray) – Do you see someone grabbing the jewelry? Then quickly open fire!
  • Grab a gem in various Getaway matches (5 total, ‘High Stakes’ trail) – Jewels are the goal of a Getaway match, so grab them ASAP.

When you have completed all three challenges, you will receive the Crowbar Pickaxe.

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 3 has started. This of course means a new Fortnite Season 3 Battle Pass and new challenges such as finding the safe and key card for Catty Corner and the Gnomes in Homely Hills in week 1.
