Fortnite is known for its epic crossover events with popular franchises, and the latest one is no exception. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT) have arrived in Fortnite, bringing new skins, weapons, quests, and rewards for players to enjoy. In this article, we will explain everything you need to know about the TMNT Cowabunga event, including how to participate, what to expect, and where to find the hidden TMNT lair on the island.

What is the TMNT Cowabunga Event in Fortnite?

The TMNT Cowabunga event is a collaboration between Fortnite and the TMNT comic book, movie, and show franchise. The event started on Friday, February 9, 2024, and will last until Saturday, February 27, 2024¹². During the event, players can access a special TMNT event tab in the lobby, where they can see the event pass, quests, and rewards.

The event pass is similar to a mini battle pass, with two tracks of rewards: one free and one premium. The premium track costs 1,000 V-Bucks and unlocks the Shredder skin and the Super Shredder skin as the final reward. The free track offers various cosmetics, such as the TMNT Pizza back bling, the Kuro Kabuto bass guitar, the Turtle Blimp glider, and more³⁴.

To earn rewards from the event pass, players need to complete quests and collect Ooze, a special currency for the event. The quests are divided into six phases, each with a different theme and objective. Some of the quests involve visiting the TMNT lair, using TMNT weapons, eating pizza, and more. By completing enough quests and earning enough Ooze, players can also unlock the bonus reward: the Krang back bling, a talking brain from the TMNT cartoon⁵⁶.

How to Find the TMNT Lair in Fortnite

One of the most exciting features of the TMNT Cowabunga event is the TMNT lair, a secret underground base where the turtles live and train. The lair is located in an underground section of the map, inside the train tunnel. This is the same location where you can find Underground Jonesy and Master Splinter NPC⁷⁸.

To find the TMNT lair, you can land at the smaller building near the Ship It! Express factory, southeast of Pleasant Piazza. In the basement of the house, there is a zipline that takes you down to the Underground HQ. From there, head to where Jonesy is hiding out and then go right. Through the door, you will enter the TMNT lair, where you can see the turtles’ weapons, posters, arcade machines, and more⁹ [^10^].

Visiting the TMNT lair is part of some of the quests in the event, so make sure to check it out and explore it. You might also encounter some enemies or allies there, so be prepared for a fight or a party.


The TMNT Cowabunga event in Fortnite is a fun and nostalgic way to celebrate the heroes in a half-shell and their adventures. By joining the event, you can unlock new skins, weapons, and items inspired by the TMNT franchise, as well as discover the secret TMNT lair on the island. Don’t miss this opportunity to experience the TMNT craze in Fortnite, and remember to say “Cowabunga”!
