Fortnite introduces No Sweat Summer for fans.

Summer is all about enjoying the sun, the heat, the sand, and the outdoors. As a staunch supporter of the winter, I’m not a fan, though I’m told it’s quite a popular time of the year. Me, I prefer weather where polar bears are sledding and drinking unhealthy soft drinks. That’s just me though.

If you’re a fan of summer though, you may find yourself in a place where you want to immerse yourself in all things summer. Where you can enjoy the outdoors indoor and the indoors outdoor. That’s where Fortnite comes in. After all, if you have a Switch (and portable wireless), you can take the game to the beach or bring the beach into the game.

In fact, Fortnite wants you to do just that; but preferably not at the beach. Sand, you know. It’s not good for electronics. But if you’re creative, Fortnite has a new summer contest for you to enter. It’s called the No Sweat Summer and you can enter your own summer-themed island to possibly have shown off in Discover.

According to Fortnite;

"No-Sweat Summer means chill, relaxed fun summer vibes – think water parks, fishing contests, camping, and adventures, not high-intensity combat."

What are the rules for Fortnite’s No Sweat Summer

The basic gist of any new island is to be summer themed with loads to do. The island should be new-player friendly and utilize stuff released in the last year, like the water device, surfboards, prop manipulator, and other items.

Another set of things to consider is the newer mechanics, like the sliding, sprinting, and mantling mechanics introduced over the last few months. A parkour summer wonderland will likely get your island picked.

Here are the official criterias from;
