What Time Does the Fortnite Collision Live Event Start? How to watch the Collision?

Collision Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 End Event Teaser Trailer

Are you looking forward to Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2’s Live Event, Collision? Here’s what time the latest Fortnite live event will launch!

What Time Does the Fortnite Collision Live Event Start?

It’s just about time for Season 2 to come to an end, and what a season it’s been. Not only did we get the long-awaited launch of Zero Build but Fortnite’s once-LTM is here to stay.

Not only that, but Season 2 brought back Star Wars and it seems like there’s more to come. The new Collision event in Fortnite Shop appears to have a space-theme of its own, and Darth Vader is even leaked to debut next season.

The Fortnite live event kicks off today, June 4 at 4 PM ET / 1 PM PT / 9 PM BST. However, as ever, a special Collision lobby will go live shortly before the event.

However, the in-game timer seems to indicate that the actual launch time will be almost 10 minutes later than that. We’ve put together a countdown timer below that indicates when the in-game clock will hit zero.

Those who want to experience the Collision live event should load up Fortnite around 30 minutes before the event begins to avoid issues. And from what we can gather, the new Collider POI is going to be at the center of ‘Collision’, so be sure to check it out in-game!

Fortnite Collision Event Countdown
Although we don’t know how long today’s Collision event will be, past events have usually lasted only a few minutes total. What’s more, there could even be a brief LTM shortly afterward, until the servers go down.

Don’t miss out on the Fortnite June 2022 Crew Pack either – it’s perfect for the new Collision event! Plus, when you’re loading into the game later today, you’ll notice the new Fortnite x Pac-Man collaboration is already live.

How to watch the Fortnite Collision, Chapter 3 season 2 finale

Fortnite Chapter 3 season 2 is coming to a close, and you can watch the finale if you log in to the game at a specific time. The finale event is called Collision, and we can definitely guess it has something to do with the huge Collider in the center of the map.

The event takes place on June 4 starting at 4 p.m. EDT, and you can join the Collision mode up to 30 minutes before the event to ensure you get matchmade properly. Note that the event is for squads, and if you don’t have a premade group of four people, you’ll be matched with random players. The event is a one-time thing, so you will not be able to experience it live once it’s over.

Starting on June 4 at 8 a.m. EDT, players who log into Fortnite will also get an exclusive loading screen and lobby track to celebrate the end of the season.

We’re not 100% sure what will happen, but we can only guess that the Imagined Order, who have been scattered around the map all season, are going to finally do something with the Collider in the center. However, The Seven have been fighting back (if you’ve been completing the weekly Resistance missions), so it’s not like they’re going to go down without a fight.

Notably, a huge mecha bear has been slowly getting built in the background, so we can expect a huge showdown using this mech.

How to join the Fortnite Collision live event

You can join the Fortnite live event by checking out the Collision playlist, which will be added to Fortnite half an hour before the event is due to start.

If you want to get in the queue as soon as possible, then, log into Fortnite at 8:30 pm BST and you should be able to get yourself ready to take part when the hour strikes.

As an added bonus, everyone who logs into Fortnite on the 4th June, from 1pm BST onwards, will be rewarded with an exclusive Loading Screen and Lobby Track. Who doesn’t love some free goodies?

Fortnite reveals Mecha Weapons Team just before Collision

To help get fans into the mood, if you will, Fortnite made the Mecha Weapons Team available for purchase just hours before the Chapter 3, Season 2 live event. Shockingly, despite showcasing four characters, there are actually only two; ‘Mecha Strike Defender’ and ‘Mecha Strike Navigator’.

Defender and Navigator each have multiple costumes and designs, which is what fans saw in the original image work for the characters. They’re now available ahead of the event and will be around to purchase come Chapter 3, Season 3.

What do you need to know for Fortnite: Collision?

The Fortnite event, “Collision” is set to start on Saturday, June 4, at 4 PM ET. Once you log in and start playing the event, you will not be able to replay it. Epic Games is advising you to record the game if you can, and relive it that way because once you’re done, you’re done.

Once the day of the event rolls around, log in starting at 8 AM ET, to receive an exclusive loading screen and lobby track, which will not be available after the event ends. Those two items are free to players who just log into the game on the day of the event.

The game will then go dark after you play the event out, and you won’t have access to anything new until June 5, when the game will begin Chapter 3, Season 3. There are rumors circling about the next season, but until the game launches, they remain just that.


With “COLLISION” marking the end of Chapter 3 Season 2, players will want to wrap up any remaining Quests and unlock all desired rewards before June 4 at 4 PM ET. This may include:

  • Completing Prowler’s Special Quests
  • Gathering any remaining Omni Chips to unlock variants of the Omni Sword pickaxe
  • Trading in any remaining Battle Stars in exchange for rewards

Note that any unused Battle Stars will be automatically redeemed for the earliest available rewards, but unspent Omni Chips will be lost when the season ends. As with any season, — Quests and rewards from Packs like the Golden Touch Quest Pack will carry over to the next Season.

Starting on May 31 at 9 AM ET, Bargain Bin Week kicks off once again and cuts the cost of all Character services and Exotic item trades for all your remaining Bars. Remember, your Bars in Fortnite Collision will expire at the end of the season. Make it rain!

What day is the Collision event?

“COLLISION” takes place on June 4 at 4 PM ET and is a one-time only, in-game event. Content creators and players wanting to relive their daring moves and heroic experiences should take steps to record and archive the event since Replays of it will not be available.
