Fortnite v23.40 update brings the Most Wanted event, new Weapons and more

Embark on the ultimate heist!

The Most Wanted event in Fortnite has begun with the arrival of v23.40 update, and there are several cosmetic items to unlock in order to obtain free skin. It won’t be simple as players will have to take on a number of tasks over the next two weeks. Players have until February 28, 2023, to complete it.

Grab new exotic weapons during the Fortnite Most Wanted Event

These brand-new exotic weapons are exclusive to the Most Wanted event and can only be obtained by defeating the bosses defending each Cold Blooded Vault or using Vault Keycards at those locations.

  • Heisted Breacher Shotgun – Perfect for destroying walls and cover.
  • Heisted Explosive Assault Rifle – Fires explosive projectiles.
  • Heisted Accelerant Shotgun – Increases movement speed and fire rate as players damage enemies.

Raise Heat Levels for additional benefits

Each time players defeat a rival, unlock a vault, or use a burner payphone in a Cold Blooded-controlled section of the map, this level will rise. This can be both advantageous and disadvantageous.

  • Heat Level 2 – Increases movement speed by 15%, and you’ll regenerate up to 100 health out of combat.
  • Heat Level 3 – Increases movement speed by 20%, and you’ll regenerate up to 100 health and 50 shields out of combat.
  • Heat Level 4 – Increases movement speed by 25%, and you’ll regenerate up to 100 health and 100 shields out of combat.
