The Fortnite Urgent Covert Ops Quests have officially launched in Zero Build mode, and finishing them all will give you a free Secret Sledge pickaxe.

Along with the weekly Resistance Quests and Lantern Trials, Epic Games has now added a new set of objectives for Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 players to complete: the Covert Ops Quests.

There are a total of four Covert Ops Quests, each spanning two or four days. These are long-term goals to strive for, rather than short-term activities like the weekly challenges, so be ready to try a bit harder.

How to get the Secret Sledge pickaxe in Fortnite?

You must finish all four Covert Ops Quests to receive the free Secret Sledge pickaxe. The next step of the Covert Ops Quests will not open unless you have finished the prior one, so you’ll need to keep up with them all as the days pass or you’ll miss out on the free reward.

After completing Quest 4, the Secret Sledge pickaxe should arrive in your locker shortly, however, there may be a short wait until the event ends on May 2 at 9 AM ET, so keep an eye out.

Note: These tasks must be performed in Zero Build mode instead of the usual Battle Royale format.
