As players are coming into the newly announced Lantern Fest, there will be a few different types of challenges that they’ll be able to partake in. Some are combat-related, while others will make players take photos. Let’s dive into the different challenges that await!

One of the first challenges that are arising is the Lantography Challenge, which is making players search out Lanterns on the map, and taking creative photos with them, for the chance to win some great, and exclusive rewards for the top voted choice. Players that win this challenge by sharing their photo on Twitter with the hashtag #Lantography2022 will receive the Cameo Needs Loot! Emote, and the competition ends on April 8th, 2022.

Up next, there are Combat Trials that you’ll be able to partake in, with the following needing to be completed:

  • Eliminations with an IO Titan Tank
  • Deal Damage To Enemies
  • Reach Top 7 in Duos
  • Survive In The Storm
  • Reach Top 6 in Squads

And you’ll be able to partake in this by playing either Build or No-Build mode, so you won’t be excluded if you prefer one mode over the other. Epic has not shared what the rewards are for this year’s Lantern Trials would be just yet, however, last year players that completed it got an exclusive Emote.


This year, however, Epic Games have teamed up with Power Shong, aka shongxbong for an exclusive bundle that will go live on the shop later this month, on April 19th.
