In Fortnite Lil Kev is a bonus Back Bling that followed on the end of the Fortnitemares event.

You unlock it by completing Lil Kev Challenges, which includes playing a certain amount of matches and other activities. As long as you log in by a certain date on Monday, you have until before the Lil Kev end date to get it.

If you're just getting started, our Fortnite Battle Royale tips and tricks can provide some helpful hints.

Fortnite Lil Kev event objectives and rewards

The Lil Kev event is similar to the recent Fortnite Birthday event, introducing new Challenges and associated rewards.

The Lil Kev event objectives and rewards are:

  • Play 15 Matches (reward - 500 XP)
  • Gain 5,000 XP (reward - 500 XP)
  • Outlive 500 opponents (reward - 500 XP)

All three can be completed by playing any mode apart from Playground. Our XP page explains the best way to get XP, while outliving opponents is simply a case of playing enough matches.

Completing all three of the above challenges will reward you with the 'Lil Kev' back bling.


Fortnite Lil Kev event end date

You have to log in by the following times on Monday, November 5th to access the challenges:

  • UK: 6pm (GMT)
  • Europe: 7pm (CEST)
  • East Coast US: 1pm (ET)
  • West Coast US: 10am (PDT)

The Lil Kev event end date is Sunday, November 11th on the same times as above.

How did Lil Kev arrive in Fortnite?

The Lil Kev event began in Season 6 when Fortnitemares ended.

Developer Fortnite invited players to observe an in-game event, which saw the destruction of Kevin, the purple cube that has stalked the game's map since Season 5.

You can watch it in action here:

After the event ended, Kevin (the cube) disappeared, and the Lil Kevs appeared for players to unlock.
