Fortnite Offers Free Pickaxe as Apology for Server Problems


Fortnite is saying sorry.

The popular game experienced some serious login issues in late December – including a big 8-hour long stretch of downtime.

To make up for that mess, developer Epic Games is set to offer fans a big XP boost and a freebie.

Starting tonight (Friday), Fortnite is kicking off a Power Leveling Weekend and giving everyone that logged in during Winterfest the new Crescent Shroom Pickaxe before it arrives in the shop later.

Your chance to grab the pickaxe goes through Monday morning.

What do you think of Fortnite offering the Crescent Shroom Pickaxe and Power Leveling Weekend as an apology? Did you experience any of the server problems last month?
