What are accolades in Fortnite?

Accolades are different from the quests and milestones you have to achieve in Fortnite. They are awarded throughout your gameplay for completing various small missions. These can be things like getting the first kill, surviving until the final ten, or even being the first to kill an animal on a map.

There is no list of accolades in Fortnite, so knowing how to achieve them can be a little confusing. However, by simply playing the game, you are sure to rack up a few. At the end of every match, you can switch to the Match Stats tab at the top of your end game screen and it will show you all the accolades you managed to earn.
