For one week, May 6, 2021 - May 13, 2021, Apollo Island will be filled with extra weapons and items that cause fires.

That means more Gas Canisters, Fireflies, Flame Bows, and Propane Tanks.

Fires will also deal more damage and spread more quickly.

Oh, the Flare Gun is also coming back to the game, but only during Week 1 of Fortnite's Wild Weeks.

Considering how two of the Week 8 Challenges for Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 6 have to do with settings things on fire, this Wild Week's theme fits nicely in.

Future Fortnite Wild Weeks

With Week 1 underway, future Wild Weeks will take place on:

  • Week 2: May 13, 2021
  • Week 3: May 20, 2021
  • Week 4: June 3, 2021

The themes for these weeks have not been revealed yet, but they are sure to be exciting.

With four different types of special bows in Fortnite in Season 6, the Wild Week themes may correspond with those.
