Another week, another opportunity to earn free in-game items in Fortnite. Unlike events related to Battle Pass outfits, like getting the Gold Anniversary skin for Lara Croft, the Lantern Trials is one you’ll need to manually sign up for.
The event comes in celebration of Ramadan and is set to run from May 10 until May 16. This gives you a few more days (at the time of this writing) to quickly jump in and earn free Fortnite rewards. Wondering where to start? Here’s how to participate in the Lantern Trials in Fortnite!
Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6 | How to Participate in the Lantern Trials
To participate in the Lantern Trials in Fortnite, you’ll need to sign up on the official webpage for Fortnite’s Lantern Trials. When you visit the Lantern Trials page, you’ll be asked to log in to your Fortnite account. Once logged in, you’ll earn your first Badge and your first in-game reward in the form of the Lantern Spray.
In total, there are 11 Badges that you’ll be able to earn with rewards coming at two key progress points. When you earn 6 Badges, you’ll earn the Warrior Emoticon. When you reach all the way to the 11th Badge, you’ll earn the Lantern Glow Wrap.
The next question you’re bound to have is how to earn Badges during the Lantern Trials. To earn one Badge, you’ll need to play approximately 40 minutes of Fortnite in either Solos, Duos, Trios, or Squads (Arena, Creative, and LTMs won’t count towards your Badge progress).
And that’s really all there is to it. All you need to do to participate in the Lantern Trials is sign up on the website, then play 40 minutes of Fortnite for each Badge. In total, you’re looking at a little under 8 hours of gaming in Fortnite to earn all of the Lantern Trials rewards including the Warrior Emoticon and Lantern Glow Wrap.
In the FAQ page for the Lantern Trials, a few stipulations are mentioned including limited sign-ups with registration said to close after 1 million players sign up. As of the time of this writing, we were able to sign up without issue.
Additionally, the Lantern Trials are supposed to be exclusively available to residents of Egypt, United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman, and Jordan. Testing out the sign-ups for this purpose of this guide, we found that we were able to sign up for the Lantern Trials even though we’re residents of the United States.
