Epic Games are providing all Fortnite players with a free Stay Smooth Spray.
The v10.10 content update went live on the Fortnite servers earlier in the day which saw the introduction of the Junk Rift and Glitched Consumables. Epic also decided distribute a free reward to every Fortnite player.
After today’s content update went live, players reported that they were given a free reward by Epic Games. The reward is the Stay Smooth provide and the reason why Epic are providing it is to celebrate that fact that Fortnite now has servers in the Middle East.
Players in the Middle East have been asking for servers in the region for quite some time, however, Epic couldn’t add servers in the location due as none of the cloid providers Fortnite use had the capacity available in the Middle East region. Here’s the tweet they put out in January:
We work with multiple cloud providers to supply the infrastructure for Fortnite servers globally. None of these providers yet have capacity available in the Middle East region, but we expect to have a solution in the next few months. We'll keep you updated as we learn more!

Amazon recently added servers in the Middle East, which allowed Epic to add servers in the region recently.

Epic have provided a number of free cosmetics lately with the last set of free cosmetics being made available for those who connected their Epic Games and YouTube accounts together and watched 20 minutes or more of the Fortnite World Cup YouTube live stream.
