Fortnite Most Wanted quests are a series of challenges attached to that event, and by completing them you'll earn Infamy instead of XP, which is then used to award you with various cosmetic items including the Gold Blooded Ace outfit. There's plenty of capering required as you work through these assignments, involving daring heists on Cold Blooded locations to steal their loot, as well as other combat and exploration feats. This will be available until February 28, but it's worth getting involved now as there's a lot to get through before that deadline, so here everything you need to know about Most Wanted in Fortnite, including the full list of quests and the rewards you'll unlock by beating them.

What are the Fortnite Most Wanted quests

Completing seven out of nine Most Wanted quests in each section above will earn you a Cold Blooded Medallion, and if you collect all five of them then the Solid Skull back bling will be yours. While ticking off those quests you'll also rack up Infamy, which is used to unlock Fortnite Most Wanted rewards in the form of various cosmetic items to add to your locker:

  • 4,000 Infamy: Escapees wrap
  • 8,000 Infamy: Infamy banner icon

If you're having a hard time earning Infamy, then you can also buy these Fortnite Most Wanted rewards using in-game currency. Follow the prompt at the bottom of the screen to initiate this, which costs 150 V-bucks per reward and they can only be unlocked in sequential order. Remember, all Most Wanted rewards can be earned for free by completing quests, so no purchase is necessary.
