What time does the Avatar: Elements event start in Fortnite?

Avatar: Elements is a Fortnite event in Chapter 5 Season 2. An Avatar collaboration, it brings characters from both The Legend of Korra and The Last Airbender to the game. While Korra is part of the battle pass, The Last Airbender crew is joining the game as part of the Avatar: Elements event.

The event will likely feature a mini-pass event, similar to the Jujutsu Kaisen and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles events, rewarding cosmetics in exchange for completing quests.

Here’s when the Avatar: Elements event starts in your time zone, plus some details about what to expect from the event in Fortnite.

What cosmetics are part of the Avatar collab in Fortnite?

You could already get Korra as part of the Chapter 5 Season 2 battle pass, but a few of the characters from the original Avatar: The Last Airbender series have joined the fray.

You can grab Toph, Zuko, and Katara for 2,000 v-bucks each, each coming with their own backbling, pickaxe, and Lego Fortnite style. You can also buy a bundle with Zuko and Katara for 3,200 v-bucks. There’s also the Air Flurry emote for 500 v-bucks, which replicates Aang’s iconic airbending marble trick from the Kyoshi Island episode of the show.

However, if you want Aang, you’ll have to wait for the Avatar: Elements event to start. Based on previous events, Aang will likely be a part of a mini battle pass-like rewards track. For around 1,000 v-bucks, you’ll be able to unlock Aang, as well as several other cosmetics, as long as you put in the work and grind the cosmetics out by doing quests.

Based on past reward track events, like the Jujutsu Kaisen event, we can likely expect Aang’s outfit to eventually hit the Fortnite shop as a regular skin you can purchase down the line. However, some of the other cosmetics and emotes may not come back. (The Yuji Itadori skin and his pickaxe came back to the shop, but a few of the cosmetics have still not returned as of this writing.)
