How to override in Fortnite

To Overdrive in Fortnite Festival, you must press all the golden notes in a single sequence when they appear to charge the bar at the bottom of the screen. If you lose multiple notes, the remaining gold notes will return to their normal color and you will not be charged for them.

Once you’ve played enough notes and there’s a substantial amount of charge in the bar at the bottom of the screen, you’ll see an “Overdrive” message appear just below the note line. Press the indicated control to activate an Overdrive and you’ll get extra points on every note you play until the charge on the bar runs out or until you miss enough notes to make it stop.

That is all for now! Remember to do this with a friend if you want to pass one of the Fortnite Lady Gaga event challenges.
