When is the Fortnite Birds of Prey event?

Thanks to Fortnite data miner ShiinaBR, we now know when the Fortnite Birds of Prey event is happening.

February 6 at 7 p.m. ET is when you can expect the event to go down. According to ShiinaBR, there will be new challenges to complete (most likely themed to the movie and the DC comics universe) that unlock a new skin style and two new pickaxes in the item shop. Fingers crossed for Harley's bat.
