Fortnitemare challenges in Fortnite continue this week in part 4. One of the hardest and most mysterious challenges listed this week is for players to destroy at least three cube fragments.

If you want to know what are cube fragments in Fortnite and how to destroy them, then follow our quick guide below.

How to Destroy Cube Fragments in Fortnite

What are Cube Fragments?

Cube fragments are alien objects of purple color that are reminiscent of the purple corrupted zones. Unsurprisingly, the seven corrupted zones on the map are the places where cube fragments will spawn.

Search around these seven locations to find the three required cube fragments in Fortnite:

  • South of Lazy Links
  • Wailing Woods
  • South of Pleasant Park
  • West of Dusty Divot
  • South of Retail Row
  • West of Shifty Shafts
  • North of Fatal Fields
How do Cube Fragments Look Like?

It is easy to identify them as they will spawn unique cube monsters of five different types:

  • Cube Fiend
  • Elite Cube Fiend
  • Cube Brute
  • Elite Cube Brute
  • Mega Cube Brute

Each of them is stronger than the previous one, and that's why it's a good idea to destroy as many cube fragments as you can.

Best Weapons Against Cube Fragments

When you find a cube fragment, you will first need to eliminate cube monsters that it spawns. The two best weapons that deal the most damage to cube fragments are SMGs and Shotguns.

Each cube fragment has a certain amount of health, and it will keep spawning those pesky monsters up to the moment of its destruction. So focus on destroying the fragment first, and if there are too many monsters around, you can eliminate a few to free some space.

Sometimes, smaller cube fragments may randomly appear on the map. They are easier to destroy, but the game will count them  as well. So don't ignore the smaller fragments!

Cube Fragments Rewards

When you destroy a cube fragment it will drop some loot. Usually, it's a very good legendary weapon or any other exclusive item that you are probably looking for. Also, each destroyed cube fragment will add 500 XP to your score.

That is how easy you can destroy three cube fragments during Fortnitemare event this week, and for other Fortnite guides at GameSkinny, please follow the links below:

Fortnite Alpha Tournament Guide: How to Get More Points Fast https://www.gameskinny.com/d6bqp/fortnite-alpha-tournament-guide-how-to-get-more-points-fast https://www.gameskinny.com/d6bqp/fortnite-alpha-tournament-guide-how-to-get-more-points-fast Wed, 17 Oct 2018 17:21:08 -0400 Ty Arthur

As if getting Victory Royale hasn't been enough, Fortnite finally has a real-deal Tournament mode for earning points and getting crowned as the top player.  Running through October 21, tournament sessions will be available for a limited number of hours each day.

To play in the Alpha Tournament, click the icon above the Play button and then click the Alpha Tournament button.

Players are matched against opponents with similar scores during the session, and if you score 20 points in a session, you earn a coveted golden pin

How to Get Points in Fortnite's Alpha Tournament

The main Fortnite screen showing the tournament selection tab

You begin earning points at 3 eliminations; you then earn 1 extra point at 5 eliminations and 7 eliminations.

Additional points (in 1 point increments) are awarded if you:

  • Get in the Top 10
  • Get in the Top 3
  • Get Top 1 Victory Royale  

Points reset at the beginning of each day during the Tournament, so you only have a limited number of hours to hit 20 points and earn the pin.

Best Landing Spots & Kill Areas in Alpha Tournament

Because of this point set up, aggressive play is rewarded. Don't hide. Don't be a bush. Don't play it safe. Land in hot zones such as:

  • Tilted Towers 
  • Pleasant Park 
  • Lazy Links
  • Paradise Palms

Essentially, jump where everyone else is. Once you land (and you probably already know this), immediately go for any location with a chest or floor weapon so you can come out swinging.

Finding loot faster than the opponents is key here. Hit high loot areas for critical early-game gains. Go to the basketball court in Greasy Grove, basically all the buildings in Tilted Towers, or the grocery store in Retail Row. 

Best Situational Weapons for Alpha Tournament

No matter where you land, stick to the high ground for headshots whenever possible. Also, try lurking indoors with a shotgun or other close-range weapons for quick kills in tight spaces. 

Individual play style can have a big impact on how you rack up your kills, but in general, these are the best weapons to try to pick up in the Alpha Tournament:

  • Any SMG 
    • For spray and pray outdoor fighting
  • High rarity Assault Rifle (AR)
    • For outdoor fighting at medium range
  • Pump or Tactical Shotgun 
    • For indoor or close-quarters fighting
  • Bolt action or heavy sniper rifle
    • Long-range headshots if your playstyle keeps you at the edges of each area
Best Choke Points in Alpha Tournament

While aggressive attacking with SMGs and shotguns is key to getting kills quickly, some players will still prefer to lie in wait and snipe. In that case, these are some excellent choke points to rack up kills:

  • The RVs north of Tilted Towers 
  • The hill above Dusty Divot with a clear line of sight down below
  • Any rooftop at Greasy Grove (if you land on the gazebo at the south end of the area you will likely arrive directly at a chest spawn)
Best Defensive Strategies for Alpha Tournament (If You Must)

If you want to rack up the most points in the least amount of time, it can actually be more efficient to get 5-7 kills, and then die on purpose and join a new match.

Trying to get all the way to the #1 spot may take more time than it's worth, especially if you end up dying just shy of the top 10 or top 3 spots.

Defense is less important in an Alpha Tournament match as you're fighting against the clock to get quick kills before the daily points reset. If you are want to try to get to the Top 10, 3, and 1 spots, however, there are two key defense options to utilize in the Tournament.

  1. Jump frequently
  2. Avoid headshots
  3. Build 1x1 tower bases
    • Learn to quickly build ramps if the bottom gets taken out for quick escapes

There is literally no reason to hide in this mode. In essence, Alpha Tournament wants you to play differently and get out of your comfort zone. Acting like a bush will get you nowhere. 

Fortnite Alpha Tournament Schedule

Here's the full breakdown on when each Tournament will be running; don't forget individual session times will vary by region each day:

  • Alpha Tournament (Solo): October 16-21
  • Beta Tournament (Duo): October 23-25
  • Friday Night Fortnite (Squad): October 19-November 30
  • Salty Springs Cup (Solo): October 27-31
  • Tomato Temple Cup (Duo): October 28-November 1

A Word on Alpha Tournament Bugs

The choose your game mode screen showing various fortnite events and modes

As you might have expected, the rollout of a major new Fortnite mode means unexpected bugs and hiccups.

Most notably, Alpha Tournament is currently suffering from incorrect scoring (preventing you from getting the pin) and matchmaking problems

A patch is, of course, expected to fix these problems in the next day or so, but for now, you need to know these issues persist and you may not get the score you earned.

Check out a full rundown from Epic regarding known issues at Reddit here.

Fortnite Season 6, Week 4 Challenge Guide: Complete 3 Timed Trials https://www.gameskinny.com/dqfyn/fortnite-season-6-week-4-challenge-guide-complete-3-timed-trials https://www.gameskinny.com/dqfyn/fortnite-season-6-week-4-challenge-guide-complete-3-timed-trials Wed, 17 Oct 2018 07:11:41 -0400 Sergey_3847

Completing Timed Trials is definitely one of the hardest challenges that Fortnite players have ever encountered. This week you need to hit at least three of the five possible Timed Trials around the map. But the reward is worth it, as you will get 10 Battle Stars after the successful completion of this challenge.

You can build up a strategy of your own on how to finish all three required trials, or you could simply follow our quick guide below for all the possible locations of the Timed Trails and how to complete them in the fastest way possible.

How to Complete 3 Timed Trials in Fortnite

The three best and easiest Timed Trials in Fortnite can be found in Snobby Shores, Shifty Shafts, and Tomato Temple. All three trials are super easy to complete, but here are a few tips to make it completely clear.

Trial 1: Snobby Shores

When you arrive at Snobby Shores, go right on top of the hill indicated on the map above. There you will find a softwatch that can be activated. As soon as you do it, the rest of the watches will appear downhill. Just make your way down and grab each and every softwatch you see. In the end you will finish this trial and you can move onto the next one.

Trial 2: Shifty Shafts

To the south of Shifty Shafts you will find a bridge across the river. As soon as you activate the first softwatch, the rest will appear across and above the bridge.

In order to complete this trial you need to build a ramp and gather all the watches from the top of the bridge. The last watch will be waiting for you on the other side of the bridge. Activate it and finish your second trial.

Trial 3: Tomato Temple

The final trial at the Tomato Temple is the hardest one. It will require you to run through the wooden ramp near the temple, which you may not be able to finish the first time. But after some practicing you should be able to get every single softwatch in time. As soon as you're done with this trial the challnge will be complete.

That is all on how to complete three Timed Trials in Season 6, Week 4 challenge, and for other Fortnite guides at GameSkinny, please see the list below:

If you like Halloween as much as we do, then we bet you're hyped for Fortnite Season 6 and the Darkness Rises theme. The array of available skins is terrifyingly good this time around.

\n

Battle Passes are available now until December 5 (before Season 7), which may have a winter theme if Epic decides to follow in the footsteps of this season and last winter's Survive the Holidays event.

\n

In order -- and to nab your favorite Season 6 skins they're gone -- be sure to work with friends to accomplish challenges, gain experience points, and climb tiers. Check out our ridiculously large list of Fortnite guides here

\n

Skin: Hallow Head

\n

The final Season 6 skin (for now), and arguably the most impressive, is a flaming pumpkin head.

\n

Hallow Head is an intimidating character with a large hallow pumpkin head with bright teal flames igniting from his eyes and mouth. The cloak has a tattered hem and his belt and collar are adorned with rotting pumpkin leaves. 

\n

Along with Jack Gourdon, these two pumpkin heads are some of the best of the season, and a must-have for this Halloween.

Skin: Jack Gourdon

\n

This skin was another to leak with the 6.02 update, and, honestly, we are so excited for it. Just look at it.

\n

This skin is a Legendary, so it will be around $15 as well, similar to the skins in the Grim Medicine Set and the Skull Set.

\n

This hilarious skin features a man in a black, pumpkin covered suit and a carved pumpkin head. His completely unimpressed facial expression is perfect for frustrating your opponents and is ridiculous when paired with extravagant emotes and dances like Orange Justice, Llama Bell, and Floss.

Skin: Bullseye

\n

Bullseye was one of the Season 6 skins leaked for the 6.02 patch.

\n

It's an Uncommon skin and won't be too pricey to purchase. It includes gloves, an unfastened military helmet with goggles, and a tank with a bullseye plastered at the center of the chest.

\n

If you purchase this skin, don't let your opponents hit that target and humiliate them with your own sharp-shooter skills.

Skin: Scourge

\n

Scourge came to the item shop alongside the Plague skin. Both are a part of the Grim Medicine set and resemble plague doctors from the 14th century.

\n

Both are 1,500 V-Bucks($15) in the item shop.

\n

This ominous skin includes a hooded cloak, popular crow-like plague mask, glowing green eyes, and gloves. The character is definitely one of the best to enter the shop lately, perfect for Halloween and the Darkness Rises theme.

Skin: Plague

\n

This is one of the most recent skins in the item shop; it's a part of the Grim Medicine set and is a little more expensive than the skull set. However, it is definitely one of the coolest, eeriest Fortnite skins out there.

\n

The plague doctor character is 1,500 V-Bucks. His mask has a crow-like beak -- reminiscent of medieval plague doctors -- and his eyes glow green. He also wears an apron and has medicine vials on his belt.

\n

This one appears to be limited, so you'll want to grab this one before its gone from the shop.

Skin: Skull Ranger

\n

Skull Ranger is also now available in the shop.

\n

She costs the same as her male counterpart at 1,200 V-Bucks (a little under $15) -- and she has become quite popular already.

\n

She also has a version where her bone outline glows green. Acquiring both the Skull Ranger skin and the Skull Trooper skin will complete the skull set and give you the opportunity to be even more festive this Halloween in Fortnite.

Skin: Skull Trooper

\n

They say what's old is new again, and that statement has never been truer than now. The Skull Tropper skin, a fan favorite, has made its return. 

\n

This one costs 1,200 V-bucks (a little under $15.00) and has an additional version that glows in the dark if you owned the skin previously. Some players believe that the return of this skin could be a precedent for the return of the Ghoul Skin.

\n

But only time will tell.

Skin: Dire

\n

The most challenging skin to get this season at Tier 100 is also one of the best Halloween skins available. Dire is a legendary skin that at first just looks like a jock teenager. But after unlocking his other styles, this skin transforms into a terrifying werewolf.

\n

The second style in the set is a humanoid brown wolf with glowing yellow eyes, a red headband, and ripped jeans and jackets. This one is available at 30,000 XP.

\n

The third is 70,000 XP and is a complete wolf transformation, snarling teeth and all. He grows a long snout and pointy ears. He still has brown fur and red headband, but his jacket and jeans are completely torn away.

\n

Each of the following styles begin to change the werewolf’s fur and clothes colors. His fourth unlockable style is at 120,00 XP and has grey skin with light blue accents along his jacket and headband. His third is white with yellow accents. You can gain this one at 180,000 XP.

\n

The fourth (and final) unlock is a black wolf with bright red eyes, gold arm guard, and grey clothing. It’s going to take 250,000 XP to finally reach this one though.

\n

Get ready to start grinding challenges and buddying up with your friends to gain tiers and XP fast.

Skin: Nightshade

\n

With a name like Nightshade, you would expect this skin to be a bit scarier ... well, on second thought, it is a bit unsettling.

\n

This smiling tomato head is an Epic skin and part of the Pizza Pit set. She wears a grey jumpsuit and hood over the green stem at the top of her helmet.

\n

You can reach nab this Fortnite Season 6 skin to complete your Pizza collection at Tier 86. It might not be the spookiest skin in the newest set, but it's definitely one of the most unique -- and that helmet ... well, it speaks for itself.

Skin: Dusk

\n

This is one of the spookier -- and more Halloween-centric -- Season 6 skins. 

\n

Dusk is an Epic Fortnite skin that's part of the Nite Coven set and perfect for the Darkness Rises theme.

\n

This vampire character has cold purple skin, glowing red eyes, white hair with purple edges, and creepy black claws. She wears a leather tunic, gauntlets, and boots.

\n

This demonic skin is the fifth of the seven skins you can gain, and it is available at Tier 71. It's perfect for frightening your enemies and getting a quick knock.

Skin: Fable

\n

Next up on the Fortnite Season 6 skins list is Fable.

\n

Most players simply refer to this skin as Red Riding Hood, though she’s a little more rugged than other iterations of the character with scarlet war paint on her eyes and the wolf's tail tied to her belt as a trophy.

\n

She still has her classic red hood along with braids and a skirt. Her shirt is tattered and bound with leather buckles. The rest of the look includes red and black gloves and boots.

\n

Looks like the wolves are the ones who should be running away.

\n

This skin is available at Tier 47 and is the first of the collection that won’t be immediately available after purchasing the Battle Pass Bundle.

Skin: Giddy-Up

\n

This Season 6 skin is straightforward but silly enough to work. 

\n

Giddy-up is arguably the most hilarious skin Fortnite has seen yet. The character wears a giant inflatable pink Llama around his waist -- as if he were riding it straight to a victory royale. The boots are covered in grass as well to pull off the illusion -- well, except for the blatantly obvious metal shin guards ... 

\n

You can nab this skin at Tier 23, which means it is also one you will get with the Battle Pass Bundle if you are willing to spend the extra money.

Skin: Calamity

\n

Calamity has been the talk of Season 6 for obvious reasons. Who wouldn’t want this sleek gunslinger skin?

\n

The best part is that this skin also has six unlockable styles. The first for this pink-haired cowgirl is an outfit of simple shorts and a cowgirl hat, which is available in Tier One, meaning you'll get this skin immediately when purchasing your Battle Pass.

\n

However, you'll need to gather experience to unlock this skin's other styles. 

\n

The second, available at 20,000 XP, is more threatening with a bandit mask, a black pair of jeans, and a leather vest with silver studs. The third can be gained after reaching 50,000 XP. It includes gloves and fringed jeans.

\n

The second half of styles for Calamity are more detailed but also more difficult to receive. The fourth style adds teal accents, shotgun shells along with her belt, and a poncho to complete the western look. You will need 90,000 XP for this one though.

\n

The fifth look is where players can acquire the long dark cloak with spiked shoulders at 140,000 XP

\n

And finally, the sixth style adds another ammunition strap, spiked gloves, and glowing purple trims to the cloak. Smoke ominously billows off of Calamity’s clothes in this Halloween look. Be prepared to give the game some dedication, though, since it requires 200,000 XP to unlock.

Skin: DJ Yonder

\n

The infamous Llama has returned for Season 6 in the form of a DJ.

\n

Following suit other famous artists of the electro genre such as Daft Punk and Deadmau5, this Fortnite character wears a massive metallic helmet in the shape of a llama head. With shades, a headset, and a gold tooth, this DJ is ready to fist pump their way into a victory royale.

\n

The rest of the clothes glow in sweet LED lights, meaning it's not the stealthiest look out there. But who cares? You know you want it just to stand out in the crowd -- and the winner's circle.

Fortnite Season 5, Week 10 Challenge Guide: Search Jigsaw Puzzle Pieces in Basements https://www.gameskinny.com/fmde6/fortnite-season-5-week-10-challenge-guide-search-jigsaw-puzzle-pieces-in-basements https://www.gameskinny.com/fmde6/fortnite-season-5-week-10-challenge-guide-search-jigsaw-puzzle-pieces-in-basements Tue, 11 Sep 2018 10:01:34 -0400 Sergey_3847

Last year, we had the chance to collect jigsaw puzzles in one of the weekly challenges in Fortnite. The puzzles return in this Season 5, Week 10 challenge, but this time they'll be hidden inside the basements of houses.

It's going to be a pretty hard chase to find all the jigsaw puzzle pieces, but we're here to help you out. So follow our quick guide below for all the jigsaw pieces in Fortnite's new challenge.

Where are Jigsaw Puzzle Pieces in Basements?

There are eight possible locations on the map where you can find the jigsaw puzzle pieces. You should start in the southern part of the map at the building in Salty Springs.

Then, move to the west and check out the two buildings outside of the Shifty Shafts (it's the basement with the green screen inside) and Greasy Grove. There is another one in the basement of an old shack standing on top of the hill to the south of Greasy Grove.

Then, head towards the west coast and check out the building at Snobby Shores (it's the basement of the building near the tennis court) and another one to the south of this location.

Finally, look for the other two pieces of the puzzle at the northeastern part of the map. One is inside the building to the north of Tomato Town, and another one can be found near the Risky Reels.

Just check the map above for the exact locations and you should be able to find all the jigsaw puzzle pieces in basements for this week's challenge.

Fortnite Season 5, Week 10 Battle Star Guide: Search Between a Covered Bridge, Waterfall and the 9th Green https://www.gameskinny.com/n0wgj/fortnite-season-5-week-10-battle-star-guide-search-between-a-covered-bridge-waterfall-and-the-9th-green https://www.gameskinny.com/n0wgj/fortnite-season-5-week-10-battle-star-guide-search-between-a-covered-bridge-waterfall-and-the-9th-green Tue, 11 Sep 2018 10:01:31 -0400 Sergey_3847

The hints given in this week's Battle Star challenge in Fortnite may elude even the most experienced players, but thankfully, the puzzle's been solved and you can now quickly get your Battle Star in Season 5, Week 10 challenge.

All you need to do is follow the map with the exact location provided below, and read the description in case you need more information.

Where is Battle Star in Season 5, Week 10 Challenge?

The first piece of the puzzle points out the Covered Bridge, which can refer either to the one located in the southern part of the map near Lucky Landing or in the north near Lazy Links. There's is no waterfall near Lucky Landing, though, so there's only one place left -- the bridge near Lazy Links.

The bridge at Lazy Links is built on the river that ends up with the Waterfall that falls into the ocean in the north. So these two spots are cleared out. But what about the 9th Green, and what would that mean anyway?

Well, the 9th Green simply refers to the sector of the golf course in the eastern part of Lazy Links. So now when you have all three locations figured out, you can easily identify the central point between all of them.

It's the characteristic patch of land with no grass on the golf course that will have your Battle Star ready to be claimed. Just land near Lazy Links and quickly complete one of the hardest challenges this week.

This week's Battle Star challenge in Fortnite asks you to find a location indicated on a map found in Shift Shafts. You don't actually need to look for the map itself if you don't want though, as it's leaked online already.

The main issue now is to figure out what place exactly this map is showing. If you want to quickly identify the location of the Battle Star in Season 5, Week 9 challenge, then follow our quick guide below.

The map distinctly shows that the Battle Star will spawn on one of the hills somewhere in the eastern part of the map. There are a few places that could fit the description, but if you look carefully at the map, you will notice that the hills are really tall.

Well, since most hill formations in the eastern part of the map are rather short, then there is only one place left to look for -- and that would be the hills between the Dusty Divot and Salty Springs.

Try to land in that area and circle around the hills to see the exact spot of the Battle Star. It should be seen on one of the outer hills of the formation. Then, go up to the star and claim it to be able to complete this week's challenge.

With this guide, you can finish this challenge in a heartbeat and level up your Battle Pass without wasting time searching for the map.

Fortnite Season 5, Week 9 Challenge Guide: Search Chests in Pleasant Park https://www.gameskinny.com/c9xa7/fortnite-season-5-week-9-challenge-guide-search-chests-in-pleasant-park https://www.gameskinny.com/c9xa7/fortnite-season-5-week-9-challenge-guide-search-chests-in-pleasant-park Tue, 04 Sep 2018 10:37:43 -0400 Sergey_3847

Securing seven chests each week may not be the easiest task to complete taking into account how many other players want to do the same thing in Fortnite. This week's challenge brings us to Pleasant Park.

You may not be aware of all the locations of the chests at this particular location since most of them are hidden inside the buildings. So follow our guide below for all the possible chests locations in Pleasant Park to level up your Battle Pass.

Where are Chests in Pleasant Park?

The best area to start searching for chests in Pleasant Park is the soccer pitch. You will always find one chest standing right there in the open middle of the field. So go ahead and grab that one right away.

From there move on to the house in the southwest that holds one chest in the attic and another one in the garage. Then go up to the two houses north from here and check the attics for three more easy chests.

The brick house in the north also has two chests in the attic. Move on to the northeast for another house with a chest in the attic, and another one inside a dog's booth outside of the building.

You will find one more chest in the central part of the location, and the last chest is hidden inside the basement of the building in the eastern area.

This should be sufficient enough for you to collect seven or more chests in one go.

Much like your quest for victory royale, the search for Battle Stars never ends in Fortnite. This week, you need to switch on all of your detective skills in order to reveal the location Season 5, Week 8 challenge. 

The only hint we have is to search between three oversized seats, which doesn't really say much. So, if you can't find all three seats on your own, then follow our quick guide below for their exact locations.

The first place you should be looking is located near Flush Factory, which contains the first oversized seat. Everybody knows the huge toilet seat at the entrance of the location, so while this is an easy find, keep an eye on your six for sniper fire or marauding enemies. 

The next place to look is also a popular one. It can be found to the northwest of Flush Factory. There you will find a giant wooden chair with a treasure chest on top. It's so big that you simply can't miss it. Get your skin over there and pick it up. 

However, while the first two chairs are easy to find, the third seat is really hard to find. From Flush Factory, go northeast and enter a small yard with crates. If you look closely, you will notice that the crates are piled on top of each other in a way that forms a giant seat, which is exactly what you're looking for.

Now you can combine all three of these locations and figure out the exact spot of the Week 8 Battle Star. It's on top of the hill between the three above-mentioned locations (indicated by a red dot on the map above).

Pick up the battle star, do a little dance, and make a little progress to not only completing all of this week's challenges, but leveling your battle pass.

This is one of the hardest challenges this week, but with this guide, it should be rather simple -- as long as you don't get fragged or caught in a firefight. For other Fortnite guides at GameSkinny, take a look at the list below:

This week Epic Games wants us to look out for seven chests in a relatively new location -- Lucky Landing, which is situated in the southern edge of the Fortnite map. There are quite  a few chests in there, so you should be able to get all seven chests in one go.

However, most of the chests are pretty well hidden, so you might want to follour our quick guide and locate all the chests as quickly as possible.

Where are Chests in Lucky Landing?

The first and most obvious location for a chest is a building in the very center of Lucky Landing that has a huge tree growing inside of it. So just land right there and grab your first chest from its base.

Then, head straight towards the building in the west and snatch another chest from the roof. But if you don't want to pick up single chests, then you could opt for a three-storey building in the northeastern part of the location. There you will find three chests on all three floors.

From there go a bit to the south and take two chests from a building near the large tree. One of them can be found in the attic, and the second one right near the counter on the ground floor.

Lastly, go all the way up to the bridge and there you will find two more chests. As you see, there are a lot of options here, so you should be able to complete this week's challenge rather quickly.

This week's search chests challenge will send you to the eastern coast of the Fortnite map, where the Lonely Lodge is. This unremarkable location is very similar to Wailing Woods and Moisty Mire in terms of chests spawning in wild places.

But this is also good news, since you will find a lot more chests here than the required seven. Follow our guide below for all the possible chest locations in Lonely Lodge for this Week 6 challenge.

Where are Chests in Lonely Lodge?

Th first point of interest at Lonely Lodge is the wooden house at the northern part of the areas. You will find three chests inside, all of which spawn in the attic, albeit in different rooms.

After that, check out the two shacks outside the wooden house. Each of them contains at least one more chest. If you can't find enough chests in the buildings, then check the cave near the shacks and the camp on top of the hill.

After that, move to the southern part of the location, where you will see a tall wooden tower. Go to the highest tier, where you should find three chests that regularly spawn.

Lastly, west of the tower, you will see another small shack that should contain at least another chest. All in all, you should be able to loot 10 to 12 chests, which is enough to complete this week's search chests challenge in Fortnite.

Fortnite's Season 5 has introduced a couple of unanswered mysteries that may be soon revealed. One of them is part of the Week 6 Battle Star challenge, which is a nice change of pace.

So, if you've ever wondered what the secret meaning behind the giant stone heads in Fortnite is, which were just added in Season 5, then follow our quick guide below for a complete answer and a map to this week's Battle Star.

The stone heads in question are evenly spread out all around the island, but they don't really carry any meaningful function. However, they all look in a certain direction. If you draw straight lines from each of the heads, you will find the point of intersection northwest of Fatal Fields near Salty Springs

This point is exactly what the developers want you to find, since this is where you will get this week's Battle Star. But if you don't want to waste time and do the drawing, then just take a look at the map above for the exact location of the star.

You will notice that the stone heads all look at the small hill northwest of Fatal Fields. Just land on top of that hill and interact with the Battle Star. As a result, you will complete one of the hardest challenges in mere seconds.

Fun fact: Fortnite's stone heads are ancient relics that originate from Easter Island in the Pacific Ocean near Chile. This is a nice little homage from the developers to "Easter eggs", with a huge pun written all over it.

Have you ever tried passing though a Rift Portal in Fortnite? Well, this week you are required to do so three times, if you want to complete one of the challenges in Season 5.

These portals don't have fixed locations on the map, but there are some spots where they spawn the most frequently. So, if you want to know where to look out for these portals, then follow our quick guide below.

Where are Rift Portals in Fortnite?

Reportedly, the largest amount of portals spawn in the new desert area in the southeastern part of the map. Sometimes the portals spawn so often there, that you can find two portals in the same spot. If you drop in the desert and try to look out for portals there, then this will give you a huge advantage over other players this week.

Another great place to look out for portals is at the Snobby Shores in the western part of the map. Rifts may spawn all along the shore or around the mount nearby. Just check this location out and you should find one or two open portals.

Lastly, take a tour along the river canal that connects the Loot Lake with the ocean and goes through Tomato Town. Many players have spotted Rift Portals there, so it's another place where you should be looking out.

In order to jump through the portal all you need to do is go through it -- no other actions required. Such a portal will teleport you to an adjacent location. You can use the same portal as many times as you like. But in order to complete the challenge you need to use three different ones.

What Does ATK Mean in Fortnite? https://www.gameskinny.com/ej6ai/what-does-atk-mean-in-fortnite https://www.gameskinny.com/ej6ai/what-does-atk-mean-in-fortnite Sun, 05 Aug 2018 17:21:59 -0400 Victoria B.

Recent discussions about issues with Fornite’s vehicles has brought about confusion to many gamers since the term ATK has often been mentioned. If you’ve been attempting to decode what ATK in Fortnite means, you’re not alone.

A lot of the confusion has to do with the fact that it is a new addition to Fortnite: Season Five.

Along with the favorite shopping cart mode of transportation, Fortnite added an All Terrain Kart (ATK) Vehicle. Most fans just call these little treasures golf carts because of their appearance, but the proper term is ATK due to their mobility in various environments.

These ATK vehicles can be found in Paradise Palms, Flush Factory, Snobby Shores, Junk Junction, Lazy Links, and past the Wailing Woods.

The All Terrain Kart can be a useful tool for escaping the wrath of a toxic storm closing in on you or just offer a little encouragement for your inner thrill seeker to do donuts or cliff jump.

Unfortunately, they won’t do you much use currently, as Fortnite developers have been forced to disable both the ATK's and shopping carts.

Fortnite’s Twitter account, @FortniteGame, stated that “Due to a bug with the Shopping Cart and ATK, we're temporarily disabling them in all game modes until we have a fix. We'll update you once this is resolved.”

No news yet on when you can expect the ATK’s and shopping carts to return.

Once the bug is fixed and the developers reintegrate both vehicles into the game, you’ll be able to ride around to your heart’s content.

Fortnite Season 5, Week 4 Battle Star Guide: Search Between a Gas Station, Soccer Pitch and Stunt Mount https://www.gameskinny.com/3gb93/fortnite-season-5-week-4-battle-star-guide-search-between-a-gas-station-soccer-pitch-and-stunt-mount https://www.gameskinny.com/3gb93/fortnite-season-5-week-4-battle-star-guide-search-between-a-gas-station-soccer-pitch-and-stunt-mount Tue, 31 Jul 2018 06:39:19 -0400 Sergey_3847

Tracking down Fortnite's Battle Star each week is not always an easy task. Week 4's challenge hints at a location somewhere between a Gas Station, Soccer Pitch, and Stunt Mount. But where is that? 

Fortunately, there are only a couple of places on the map that are worth searching. If you want to know how to get the Battle Star for this Season 5, Week 4 challenge, then follow our step-by-step guide below to find its exact location.

Gas Station

The first hint is the Gas Station. This could actually be anywhere, since there are eight of them in total. Most of them are concentrated in the western part of the map, so there is a large chance that one of those stations is the one we're looking for.

To figure out which gas station is the one we're looking for, let's look at the next hint in this puzzle first.

Soccer Pitch

This makes pinpointing the gas station a bit easier, since there are seven pitches on the map, but only two of them have gas stations nearby. Both of these locations can be found in the western part of the map: one near Pleasant Park, and the other one near Tilted Towers.

We're getting closer to figuring this out, but only the last clue will take us to the final destination.

Stunt Mount

There are no mounts near Tilted Towers, so this leaves us with Pleasant Park. And, if you look closely on the map above, you will see that there is a mountain near a gas station and a soccer field.

This means that the Battle Star will be right between them (indicated by the red dot above). There, you will find a patch of land with no grass, and that's where you should be looking for the Battle Star this week.

Once, Flush Factory was the hottest place on the Fortnite map. But in time, other locations took its place. However, with this week's search challenge, Epic Games decided to remind all players just how tense this place can be when it comes to looting chests.

With the start of Season 5, Week 4, Fortnite's chest search challenge will once again take you to the infamous Flush Factory. If you want to find all seven chests in order to complete this challenge, then follow our quick guide below.

Where are Chests in Flush Factory?

The manufacturing area of the factory is packed with chests. Take a look at the southwestern part of the building, where the manufacturing line is running.

You will most likely find one chest on top of the line and another one on top of the white container. Also, be sure to check the stairs and the ground floor for two more chests.

If the manufacturing line has been cleared by other players, then move out to the eastern block, where you will find a chest in a smaller adjacent building.

After that, head to the northern part of the area for another chest near the back of the dumptruck. Lastly, check the rest of the parking lot to the west for two more chests inside a smaller truck and a container standing there.

Be sure to keep and eye out for other players as you search. If you look in the places suggested above, you should easily be able to grab those seven chests, which are required to finish this week's challenge.

The latest "search chests" challenge in Fortnite's Season 5 will once again take you to Fatal Fields. And that's great news, because Fatal Fields has lots of treasure chests lying around for you to grab.

Like always, you don't need to get all of them, so just focus on getting seven chests to complete this Week 3's challenge. Follow our guide below for all the possible chest locations in Fatal Fields.

Where are the Chests in Fatal Fields?

The best way to find quick chests in Fatal Fields is to check out several buildings in the center of the area. Most chests can be found in attics, so try to land on the roof and start completing your challenge from there.

Then, check out the barns, which are usually located near the houses and fields. There will be at least one chest inside each barn. If other players managed to grab those chests before you, then move to the wooded areas to the east and west of Fatal Fields -- you should find a couple of untouched chests there as well.

A few other places are less evident but not less valuable. For example, check out the bridge in the northern part of Fatal Fields -- at least one chest spawns there on a constant basis.

In the southern area, you will see two water towers, one of which also contains a chest at the bottom. And lastly, check out the carrier in the northwestern area, where you will find one more chest between the rocks.

Season 5, Week 3's treasure map challenge can be found at Flush Factory. As always, the map gives you a hint in for finding a Battle Star -- and this time around, it points to an unknown hill near a road and a house.

To complete this Fortnite challenge, you don't need to get the actual map to get the Battle Star, so just go straight to the location indicated in our quick guide below (there's a map attached with the exact location).

Where is the Battle Star in Flush Factory?

The only place with a house and a road on a hill is located northwest of Fatal Fields. So go right there and build a ramp to get to the top of the hill.

As soon as you get to the top, it won't take long to get the Battle Star. First of all, you will notice the road leading right up to the house with a small barn nearby.

There is also a container not too far away with some funny graffiti on it and a terrace that serves as a viewing point. You can use this to build a ramp to, which is actually quite a convenient area to place the Battle Star.

In order to the Battle Star you need to approach the star and interact with it. As a result, your weekly challenge will be complete. As always, don't get so focused on getting the Battle Star t hat you forget about the other players around you.

You're finally at the point where you manage to consistently make it to the top 10 - 20 ranked spots in a Fortnite match, but now the question arises: how do you actually win during the end game?

This is what sets the amateurs and wannabees from the pros in Battle Royale matches as they learn to adapt quickly to other player strategies and stay alive as the storm circle closes.

If you find yourself struggling to be the last combatant alive and always manage to get killed in the Fortnite end game, we've got all the tips and strategies you need to finally snag that elusive Victory Royale.

How To Win In Fortnite

Fortnite is all about making it to the #1 position as the last player standing, and not about racking up the most kills. Sure, you can level up and gain bragging rights by getting kills with specific weapons, but that doesn't help you actually win.

If you get 98 kills and are sniped by the last player hiding as a bush, you still lose. It's entirely possible to win a match with 1 kill, or even with 0 kills if you manage to get the second to last player standing to accidentally kill themselves.

To reach that #1 Victory Royale position you need to be thinking sneakily and defensively (until the very end game, anyway, at which point it's time to go full aggressive). Not being seen at all is much better than getting into a firefight and coming out the victor with reduced health and ammo.

To make it to the end game, either land in an unmarked location to stay away from the early fire fights, or land in a marked location that gets significantly less foot traffic and has more cover, like Wailing Woods.  

While waiting for the storm to shrink for the end game, make sure to throw up walls before healing, but even more important, just throw them up the second you hear gunfire in the late game. Better safe than sorry. If you go for a supply drop, always box yourself in with walls first as well.

Pro players assign the wall, stairs, and floor building bindings to various mouse buttons for instantaneous building so you don't have to be struggling to find the F1 - F5 keys while getting shot at. You could even bind the wall building to the spacebar key, as it's frankly more useful than jumping. 

 Key bindings are critical to getting that half second edge over the enemy

This is critical because in most circumstances, height means winning. Ramp rushing in particular can be the difference between victory and defeat, especially in the end game when both players have tons of weaponry.

When in a fire fight you can't avoid, throw up two staircases and a floor platform (particularly if the other player is currently reloading), then hit them from above on the high ground while they scramble to find find cover. Unless you are facing off against an expert builder, they won't be able to make a fort quickly enough to defend themselves.

This strategy changes slightly when you are in a sniper fight, however. In this instance, building wider rather than taller to make it harder for the sniper to guess where you will pop out next.

While making your way to the final circle for the end game battle, always try to pick up explosives along the way, which are critical to the end game as there will almost certainly be forts involved (or barring explosives, hope for a minigun to take out their walls quickly instead).

End Game Building Strategy

However you get there, one of the most effective strategies to dominating in the end game is to simply wait in the final circle and barricade yourself as much as possible. This isn't as exciting as going full aggro across the entire match, but it's much more likely you will survive this way.

While waiting for the final opponents to arrive as the storm shrinks, take the time to reload everything so you don't have to lose any precious seconds when the final fire fight arrives.

While building your final fort, you can get sneaky by building on top of an existing structure if one is present, or instead just build a large and obvious heavily fortified position if you have the resources. Once constructed, wait in an inconspicuous corner of your fort and let the last player come to you.

If you have the time and resources, building multiple bases and using the launch pad to move between them is an excellent strategy for keeping clear line of sight and hitting enemies from above as they enter the final circle. 

Countering End Game Builders

You will very likely find yourself in a situation having to counter another player utilizing the exact same end game tactic. There are two ways to handle this.

The first is with the aforementioned explosives. C4, stickies, grenades, rocket launchers, etc. can take down walls quickly (or you can use a minigun if you got lucky and found one). You can run into a problem here, however, if you get a player really good at spamming walls, and then it all comes down to the luck of the draw of who gets off the first shot. 

The second way is to not even bother trying to destroy the walls, but just instead build stairs and go above the fort, as many players don't often think of building full roof tiles for complete coverage. If you have healing items, you can even wait till the storm shrinks and hang out inside the damaging portion of the storm to fire down and force them into a choke point in their own fort.

If you know they are hiding in their fort and you have a structure to prevent line of sight (like a large building) make sure to use it to your advantage to quietly build above their fort without them noticing and then hit hard and fast from above.

In this instance, an extremely effective tactic is to build above them, jump down towards the enemy fort, fire off a rocket launcher round as you are falling to destroy their cover, then switch immediately to a shotgun or other high powered weapon as you land to fire as soon as they break from cover.

Be careful when utilizing this strategy and keep in mind the recent Fortnite shotgun nerf. You can no longer employ the tactic of switching between shotguns repeatedly in your inventory for instant firing without having to reload, so keep other weapons handy, especially if they have a high rate of fire.

 While still useful, this is no longer the be-all, end-all of Fortnite weapons

Fortnite Season 5, Week 2 Battle Star Guide: Search Between an Oasis, Rook Archway, and Dinosaurs https://www.gameskinny.com/9hxa3/fortnite-season-5-week-2-battle-star-guide-search-between-an-oasis-rook-archway-and-dinosaurs https://www.gameskinny.com/9hxa3/fortnite-season-5-week-2-battle-star-guide-search-between-an-oasis-rook-archway-and-dinosaurs Tue, 17 Jul 2018 06:18:05 -0400 Sergey_3847

Season 5, Week 2 of Fortnite is here, and with comes a brand-new hard Battle Star challenge. 

If you've been playing since Season 5 dropped last week, you'll already know that a new desert location has popped up on the map. And this is where you'll be looking for the Battle Star this week: somewhere between an Oasis, Rook Archway, and Dinosaurs.

If you don't know where this location is, then simply follow our guide below for the exact location of the Battle Star.

Close Up of the Fortnite Map Showing Paradise Palms

The first hint in this week's challenge is the Oasis. The hint directly points to the area in the western part of Desert Palms. There you will find a lush oasis with palms and a pond of clear water. 

Then, you need to move a bit to the north and there you will see a bridge connecting two desert hills. This is your second point of reference -- Rook Archway.

Finally, you will find Dinosaurs standing a bit to the south of the archway on the highway. They're really easy to spot as there are plenty standing around.

Now, when you have all three spots figured out, you will see a hill in between these three locations. This means that the Battle Star should be on top of it. If you're lucky, you will also find a treasure chest there. So it's a win-win situation.

In order to claim this week's Battle Star, you need to approach it and interact with it. Once you do that, you've completed Week 2's Battle Star challenge.
