Celebrate Ramadan on Fortnite and win exciting rewards with the Lantern Trials event!

Now, here is how it works. Basically, players hop into the game, and that’s it. You need to be active in the game for as long as you can to keep winning rewards. Now, for every 40 minutes that you spend in the game, Fortnite grants you a badge. You stand to win the Tier 1 Badge just by logging into the game. These badges equal to the rewards you can win during this event.

The Tier 1 Badge of the Lantern Trials event will grant you the beautiful Lantern Spray. As you progress and reach Badge Tier 6, you will win the Enlightened Warrior Emoticon. The final Tier, i.e. the Tier 11 Badge will grant you the Lantern Glow Wrap.

However, note that in order to reach Badge Tier 6, you will have to be online in the game for three hours and 20 minutes. Furthermore, if you want to grab the Lantern Glow Wrap, you will have to play the game for six hours and 40 minutes. Now, of course, many of you are wondering whether you can just run Fortnite in the background for six hours or so and keep winning rewards. Here is why that would not work.

In order for your in-game time to count, you have to be present in either Solo, Duo, Trio, or Squad matches. Furthermore, your time will also not count if you are chilling in Creative, or playing Arena matches or LTMs. Well, it is tough, but the rewards are really worth it.
