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 Season 5, Week 6 Battle Star Guide: Search Where the Stone Heads Are Looking https://www.gameskinny.com/fci52/fortnite-season-5-week-6-battle-star-guide-search-where-the-stone-heads-are-looking https://www.gameskinny.com/fci52/fortnite-season-5-week-6-battle-star-guide-search-where-the-stone-heads-are-looking Tue, 14 Aug 2018 08:13:26 -0400 Sergey_3847

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.

In any case, this should be sufficient enough for you to finish Week 6 Battle Star challenge, and for other Fortnite guides at GameSkinny, please visit the links below:

Fortnite Season 5, Week 5 Challenge Guide: Use 3 Rift Portals https://www.gameskinny.com/ixbv4/fortnite-season-5-week-5-challenge-guide-use-3-rift-portals https://www.gameskinny.com/ixbv4/fortnite-season-5-week-5-challenge-guide-use-3-rift-portals Tue, 07 Aug 2018 08:06:35 -0400 Sergey_3847

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.

The map above should help you locate three different portals without any problems, and for other Fortnite guides at GameSkinny, please visit the links below:

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 Banks

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.

In the mean time, be sure to check out our other guides for Fortnite Season Five.

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.

Fortnite Season 5, Week 4 Challenge Guide: Search Chests In Flush Factory https://www.gameskinny.com/xgoge/fortnite-season-5-week-4-challenge-guide-search-chests-in-flush-factory https://www.gameskinny.com/xgoge/fortnite-season-5-week-4-challenge-guide-search-chests-in-flush-factory Tue, 31 Jul 2018 06:39:13 -0400 Sergey_3847

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.

Fortnite End Game Guide: Tips on How the Pros Win https://www.gameskinny.com/cai54/fortnite-end-game-guide-tips-on-how-the-pros-win https://www.gameskinny.com/cai54/fortnite-end-game-guide-tips-on-how-the-pros-win Wed, 18 Jul 2018 20:23:20 -0400 Ty Arthur

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

For those who manage to consistently win, what do you think of our end game Fortnite strategies, and what tips would you offer to players who are finally making it into the top 10 but struggle to win? Sound off in the comments section below!

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.

That's all for this week's Season 5 challenge. For other Fortnite guides at GameSkinny, check out the list below:

Fortnite Season 5, Week 2 Challenge Guide: Score a 3 Point Shot at Different Basketball Courts https://www.gameskinny.com/o9uqc/fortnite-season-5-week-2-challenge-guide-score-a-3-point-shot-at-different-basketball-courts https://www.gameskinny.com/o9uqc/fortnite-season-5-week-2-challenge-guide-score-a-3-point-shot-at-different-basketball-courts Tue, 17 Jul 2018 06:17:48 -0400 Sergey_3847

Fortnite's Season 5, Week 2 is upon us and that means brand-new challenges await. One of the most exciting -- and most interesting -- challenges in Week 2 is scoring a 3 point shot at three or five different basketball courts scattered over the Fortnite map. 

In total, there are seven basketball courts on the Season 5 map, so you can choose the ones that are closest to your landing spot.

Don't know where those basketball courts are? Follow our quick guide below for all the basketball courts locations and how to find them.

All Basketball Court Locations

Fortnite map showing all basketball court locations

The two best spots to land for this challenge are to the southeast of Retail Row or Paradise Palms, and to the west near Greasy Grove or Tilted Towers.

There are three different basketball courts located very close to each other if you pick these landing spots first, so you can finish the challenge rather quickly by following this strategy.

But if you happen to land in the northern part of the map, then you can go to Junk Junction and score a few goals there.

One smaller court is located to the west of Tilted Towers right at the new mini soccer stadium. And the other one can be found at the racing track east of Retail Row.

However, one of the most exciting basketball courts can be seen at the new desert location -- in its very center. It's, of course, not necessary to go here to finish the challenge, but this court is hands-down the coolest one of the lot. 

How to Score 3 Points

In order to score a 3 point shot, you need to stand beyond the 3 point arc and closer to the middle of the court. When you hit the basket, you will see confetti streaming from it, meaning that you made it. Do it on each of the different courts and you will finish the challenge.

Sledgehammer -- Epic Skin

\n

At Tier 71, players will have access to Sledgehammer, a rugged demolition soldier with one of the manliest beards to ever enter the game.

\n

This character wears military garb, shows off tattoos, and hides behind shades. While many of Fortnite's other skins are often flamboyant or edgy, Sledgehammer finds himself among the small handful that are more traditional. Fans of classic FPS games are sure to love this familiar style.

Sun Strider -- Epic Skin

\n

Sun Strider is already one of the most popular Fortnite skins. And there's little wonder why: she's ready to save lives... or take them. This life guard summer skin is part of the Rescue Patrol set and is only available after reaching Tier 47.

\n

This is the first skin that won't be available in the bundle purchase, so the only way to access her is to either purchase each tier until you reach 47 or to start grinding challenges and working toward objectives.

Redline -- Epic Skin

\n

Redline is part of the RPM set, and some of this skin's signature features are her geometric tattoos and motorcycle helmet. Her red and black style is somewhat reminiscent of the popular action game, Mirror's Edge. In fact, this skin looks a lot like the Burnout skin, which was first featured earlier this year. 

\n

She is available in Tier 23 of the Battle Pass and is included in the bundle purchase as well. Unlocking this skin shouldn't be a problem at all.

Drift -- Legendary Skin (Styles 4, 5, and 6)

\n

Drift's other three unlockable styles add his popular kitsune fox mask, adding a new layer to the overall look.

\n

The fourth style is the first in the set to include the fox mask and can be unlocked at 50,000 XP.

\n

Next, the fifth style adds a long gold and black coat with a fuchsia design on the back. It can be acquired after reaching 100,000 XP.

The sixth style can be obtained for 200,000 XP, and it adds electric currents to the coat.

\n

The next skin, also available at Tier One, is Drift, a legendary character featured in the Season 5 trailer. He is shown adding graffiti to Durr Burger before teleporting into the world of Fortnite.

\n

Some of his signature features include his face mask and sleek gold and fuchsia design. He has six unlockable styles that can be acquired through gaining XP in solo, duos, or squads. Each style adds more colors, clothing, and layers to his edgy look.

Huntress – Epic Skin

\n

To get the chance to unlock any of these character skins, however, players must first purchase the Season 5 Battle Pass with in-game currency. The price for this season is currently 950 V-Bucks ($9.50). If you want a head start on your friends, the game also provides a special bundle that includes the season pass and the first 25 levels for 2,800 V-Bucks.

Fortnite Treasure Map Guide: Risky Reels Battle Star Location https://www.gameskinny.com/9nkln/fortnite-treasure-map-guide-risky-reels-battle-star-location https://www.gameskinny.com/9nkln/fortnite-treasure-map-guide-risky-reels-battle-star-location Thu, 12 Jul 2018 15:23:28 -0400 Ty Arthur

Fortnite's various battle star treasure hunts are easily some of the most frustrating weekly challenges -- especially since the hand drawn "maps" don't always paint a clear picture of where to go if you aren't intimately familiar with the game's landscape.

Now that Fortnite Season 5 is here, we've got another battle star treasure hunt under way, although this one is a good deal easier than normal (despite still being listed as a "hard" level challenge). Let's get started with the treasure map Risky Reels challenge!

Want to skip the entire map-finding section of the Risky Reels treasure hunt and just go straight to the battle star location instead? 

The treasure is located south of Tomato Town, on top of the north side of the tunnel. Just walk up to the center area above the tunnel (beneath the outcroppings but above the actual tunnel itself) and when you get close enough, the battle star will spawn.

Finding The Risky Reels Treasure Map

If you aren't one of those Cheaty McCheatersons who skip the actual map portion of the treasure hunt, hop off the battle bus and land at Risky Reels to find the map propped up against the edge of a wood building.

For those who spend any time in the northeastern quadrant of the Fortnite map, this one should be really obvious as the tunnel south of Tomato Town, since there aren't a ton of tunnels next to trees in the game.

The only question is which side of the tunnel to land on, as both sides look nearly identical. Landing at the correct side is critical, because getting to the top of the other side is a major pain if you don't have a bunch of resources for building your own staircase and bridge.

Risky Reels Treasure Map

If you are landing directly there, launch your parachute before hitting the south end of the tunnel, then glide forward and turn around so you can drop directly onto the battle star spawn point shown in the image below.

If you miss the north end of the tunnel while gliding or are running to Tomato Town from the Risky Reels treasure map location, the easiest way to reach the treasure is just to build a staircase up on the north side in front of the tunnel.

Running all the way around the cliffs to jump down above the other side of the tunnel takes way more time than its worth, especially if anyone is straying north from Dusty Divot looking for an easy kill after looting all the chests there.

That may not be as much of an issue as in other weekly challenges, however. This is a challenge that would be good to jump on early, as most players are now landing at the newly added Lazy Links or Paradise Palms locations, leaving Tomato Town a desolate wasteland free of deadly players for a few days!

Be sure to take advantage of the lack of foot traffic to gear up, grab the battle star, and lie in wait for other unsuspecting players as the storm shrinks.

Fortnite Lightning Bolt Locations Guide https://www.gameskinny.com/ym9bm/fortnite-lightning-bolt-locations-guide https://www.gameskinny.com/ym9bm/fortnite-lightning-bolt-locations-guide Thu, 12 Jul 2018 14:50:43 -0400 Ty Arthur

Long time players will notice some big changes to the Fortnite formula as Season 5 officially launches, with three challenges now available for all players and an extra four challenges just for the Battle Pass crowd. One of those challenges is to find 7 lightning bolts in some very out-of-the-way locations.

Still getting used to the changes to the map and shotgun nerfs with version 5.0? Check out an overview of all the Season 5 patch notes here before heading out to find where the lightning bolts are in Fortnite!

Now that we've got that out of the way, if you just want to know specifically where to find the Fortnite lightning bolt locations, here are all the confirmed locations where they have been discovered so far in the Season 5, Week 1 map:

 Lightning Bolts In Fortnite Map

Where Are All The Lightning Bolts In Fortnite?

Although Epic is trying to de-emphasize the importance of building in the late game, this challenge actually requires you to harvest materials and build tall structures in order to reach the lightning bolts.

At the moment unfortunately it doesn't appear that you can grab one of the lightning bolts at the start by landing on it while falling off the battle bus, so get ready to quickly harvest and build instead. To make a lightning bolt count towards the challenge, you need to actually interact with it like you were opening a loot chest.

To complete the challenge you need to build staircases and reach at least 7 bolts. Be sure to start at an angle a short distance away from the end location as you build up and sideways, then throw up in a platform if necessary to finally reach the bolt.

There are currently more than 7 lightning bolts scattered across the map, so there's no shortage of locations to check out. Here's where to land to get started completing the lightning bolt challenge:

  • Above the llama at Junk Junction (duh, there's always a challenge item here)
  • In the sky above the middle of Dusty Divot
  • The far west side of Paradise Palms by the tall building
  • Above the middle of the house section of Retail Row
  • Up in the sky above the river to the west of Tomato Town
  • Directly above the middle of Tilted Towers
  • In the sky above the temple to the north and east of Lucky Landing (at the far south end of the map)
  • Above the northern most dock of Loot Lake
  • The middle of the Greasy Grove location
  • Next to the tower at Lonely Lodge
  • To the northeast of Snobby Shores
  • In the hills to the northwest of Wailing Woods

With the search floating lightning bolts challenge out of the way, here's the full list of newly added Fortnite Season 5 Week 1 challenges to keep you busy this week:

Fortnite Season 5 Guide: Shotgun Nerfs and Flintlock Locations https://www.gameskinny.com/ikw20/fortnite-season-5-guide-shotgun-nerfs-and-flintlock-locations https://www.gameskinny.com/ikw20/fortnite-season-5-guide-shotgun-nerfs-and-flintlock-locations Thu, 12 Jul 2018 13:17:50 -0400 Ty Arthur

Season 5 of Fortnite is officially here, and you better believe things are getting weird, with bizarre crossovers happening between realms.

On top of weapon nerfs and zany temporal rifts, we also got a whole new desert biome in the southeastern corner of the map, featuring Paradise Palms, while Lazy Links was added to the northern end at what used to be Anarchy Acres. We also know that certain new areas aren't marked, so we'll have to wait and see what those are. 

Epic has made it clear that big changes are in store for the king of battle royal games, and not just in the wacky new world-colliding mechanics for Season 5.

If you look at (some) message boards around the web, it seems the end game is getting a bit stale with "just build lol" being the prevailing mantra right now. The devs want to see that change

A series of staggered updates with big changes is coming to Fortnite, with the first being a host of weapon nerfs to spice up how you use the shotgun -- and to force players to try out new strategies.

It's a brand new Fortnite map with all new landing locations to learn!

Shotgun Nerfs (And a Few Others You Might Not Know About)

Since most players end up peeping out from behind walls to get off a shotgun blast, the basic gameplay mechanics for shottys have been totally redesigned.

Expect further fine tuning and nerfing of shotgun mechanics during the rest of Season 5 as Epic gauges community feedback -- but here's what you need to know about shotgun nerfs right now:

  • Shotguns will now indicate how many pellets hit an enemy; this will be visible within the weapon reticle
  • Shotgun spread patterns have been adjusted to be consistent; there are no more random variations
  • The heavy shotgun now fires 10 pellets rather than 5 (although the maximum damage for the heavy shotgun remains unchanged)
  • After firing a shotgun, another shotgun cannot be fired for a very short time (meaning no switching between multiple shotguns in your inventory for rapid shots without reloading)

Shotguns are just where it starts, though, with a bunch of other nerfs appearing that may change how you play.

Explosives (like grenades) and the rocket launcher now have reduced vehicle knockback for shopping carts or the new All Terrain Karts (ATKs).

Additionally, the suppressed SMG has been tweaked so its damage drop off is in line with other SMGs -- damage is reduced to 80% at 35 meters and then down to 65% at 50+ meters.

Finally, the hunting rifle's aim assist has been reduced to be in line with other sniper rifles, so it won't be quite as accurate anymore.

Where to Find Flintlock Weapons

Thankfully, the Epic crew hasn't forgotten about those of us who still prefer the original Save The World mode. Now, a whole new class of old-timey weapons has appeared to put a wrinkle in Season 5.

Here's what you can now discover in missions, pick up in the event store, or acquire randomly through loot llama cards:

Weapon Name Rarity DPS
 Duelist Epic Pistol  645.8
 Duelist Legendary Pistol  708.5
 Dragoon Epic Shotgun 2586.4
 Dragoon Legendary Shotgun   2812.5
Ol' Betsy Elite Sniper 711.6
Ol' Betsy Legendary Sniper 777.5
Sir Hootie Epic Melee Club 292.2

How To Play Fortnite Bingo Mode (Complete With Game Ideas) https://www.gameskinny.com/nvol0/how-to-play-fortnite-bingo-mode-complete-with-game-ideas https://www.gameskinny.com/nvol0/how-to-play-fortnite-bingo-mode-complete-with-game-ideas Wed, 11 Jul 2018 16:58:20 -0400 Ty Arthur

Move over High Explosives, 50 vs 50, and Solid Gold because the best Fortnite game mode ever has arrived -- and it wasn't even crafted by the Epic team at all!

While waiting on Fortnite Season 5 to officially drop (which seems like will involve Vikings and a tear in the fabric of time somehow?), players decided to come up with their own custom game mode -- Fortnite bingo!

Ready to get going filling out bingo lines and using nearly every weapon found in the game against your best mates? Let's get started!

Note: Special thanks to Fortnite YouTuber Lachlan for catapulting this one into the public consciousness when he started playing rounds for 100,000 V-Bucks (check out the video below).

Fortnite Bingo Card Basic Version

Bingo Custom Mode

This special way to play bingo in Fortnite makes extensive use of the game's new Playground mode, which is currently labeled as a limited-time mode. However, the mode gives you plenty of time to find all the items on the bingo card without having to constantly drop back into the loading screen after getting killed.

To play, just pop in a Playground match and start searching the map until you or a friend fill up your inventory with five items on the bingo card.

Here's a quick tip: Before the match, decide how you want to set up the custom match's win conditions.

For example, you could go for a traditional bingo setup -- collect five items in a vertical or horizontal line. Then make players win multiple rounds over time to get a full-card winner.

Alternatively, you could instead go for the full blackout win, which could take hours with a dedicated group of players. Lastly, you could decide that players must actually net kills with the weapon in question, or deploy certain items at certain time to get the bingo segments to count.

Bingo Hard Mode

Ok, the above is the easy version of Fortnite bingo. If you're looking for more of a challenge, this is how you play hard mode.

If your group has some serious time to grind, drop into Squads mode and try to get a bingo win while playing against other players in a regular 100 player match! In this version of the game, bingo lines should stay blacked out between matches, as it's unlikely you'll hit five in a row before dying in a single game.

Alternatively, if you don't like the original bingo card setup or want to swap out items like Port-A-Fort or stink bomb for other weapons, make up your own custom Fortnite bingo card and share it with your friends!

There are plenty of other ways to play if you want to change up the difficulty while waiting for Season 5. Fill up a card with llamas to see who can get to five or 20 first. Or pop in locations like Junk Junction and Tilted Towers to see who can visit the most locations the fastest!

Are you jumping on the bingo bandwagon? Let us know how you plan to play in the comments below, and stay tuned for full coverage on the first week of Fortnite Season 5 to arrive tomorrow!

For those who have been away in recent weeks, Season 4 brought plenty of weapon and item additions to the game. Make sure to check out the the high capacity drum gun, new dual pistols drop, and area-clearing stink bombs.

We're at the end of Fortnite's insane Season 4, but there's still a few more changes and additions to the gameplay before the map changes yet again with the Season 5 opening. With the latest patch, the devs at Epic Games have added a new drum gun to the mix. 

The infamous stink bomb just made the transition from Battle Royale to Save The World mode (and those of us who still play Save The World thank you for that, Epic Games!). However, the brand-new weapon has arrived for Battle Royale players -- and it has the stopping power of a rifle and the fire rate of an SMG. 

Here's what you need to know about the Tommy Gun, a.k.a. the Drum Gun. 

Fortnite Drum Gun New Weapon

The drum gun features a high-capacity magazine and quick rate of fire. However, it has lower accuracy and mild recoil, much like the recently released dual pistols. This retro weapon can be found in floor drops and chests, and it comes in two main varieties -- uncommon and rare.

Both varieties use medium ammo and deal more damage than the SMG, so this may become the go-to gun for quick rates of fire and high damage in many Battle Royale matches.

The drum gun is an excellent first choice weapon for firing down a corridor, taking down an enemy wall, or getting off damage at range before closing with a shotgun. Just be sure to have a backup in place for when your drum runs dry!

Rare Fortnite Drum Gun Stats
  • Damage: 27
  • Magazine Size: 50
  • Fire Rate: 9
  • Reload Time: 3 seconds
  • Ammo: Medium
Uncommon Fortnite Drum Gun Stats
  • Damage: 26
  • Magazine Size: 50

The final week of challenges in Fortnite's Season 4 brings another search chests challenge. This time you will need to find seven chests in Junk Junction, which is quite a small location for such a demanding task.

On top of that, all the players will want to land there and take their share, so this will be a hard one. If you want to find all seven chests in this week's challenge, then follow our quick guide below for all the info you need.

All Chest Locations in Junk Junction

Junk Junction is located in the northwestern part of the map right near the new soccer stadium located above Pleasant Park. The first three chests can be found in the building standing in the central part of the junction. Two of them are in the attic and another one is on the ground floor.

Then, move to the orange metal crushing machine in the northern area of the location and check it for another chest. After that head to the west of the junction and go up the ramp of the metal structure. You will see another chest there.

Go down and break the wall behind the metal structure. You will find another secret chest right behind it. And finally, go a bit to the south and claim another chest standing on top of the pile of crushed cars.

As you see, it is possible to get all seven chests in Junk Junction in one go, but other players will compete hard. So be sure to get eliminated before trying this challenge again. In this way the game will count the chests you've gotten previously.

Good luck getting all the chests during this week's search challenge, and for other Fortnite guides at GameSkinny, be sure to visit the links below:

One of the biggest surprises for all Fortnite players this week was the brand new challenge that appeared at the very last moment. Instead of looking in Moisty Mire, which was the original challenge, this time you will need to follow the treasure map found in Haunted Hills.

When you find the map, you need to be able to identify the location of the Battle Star in order to complete this challenge. If you want to know how to quickly get there, then follow our guide below.

The map itself can be located in the Haunted Hills, but you don't really need to go there to be able to claim this week's Battle Star. Just follow the map above for the exact location of your prize.

If you are not familiar with the location then just land in the northwestern part of the map at the Junk Junction. It's the area right next to the new soccer stadium, which is located right above Pleasant Park.

Enter the junkyard and go to the northern area, where you will see an orange car crushing machine and a pile of crushed cars. Climb up that pile and the Battle Star will be right on top of it.

Walk up to the star and collect it. This will complete Week 9 challenge of Season 4.

Getting the best chests in Moisty Mire can be a bit of a hassle in this Week 9 challenge for Fortnite. The entire movie set area is filled with chests, but you can easily get eliminated by other players, who will want to take those chests for themselves.

So, if you don't want to take too much damage and just quickly get your seven chests, you can take a look at the guide below and see for yourself which spots are the safest to loot.

All Chest Locations in Moisty Mire

While everybody else will try and snatch the chests at the movie set near Moisty Mire, you can just go north and west and grab four chests at the two big trees. One of them hides three chests, while the other one, which is located a bit to the south, has another chest for you to loot.

Also, check out the ice-cream truck in that same area -- you may get your fifth chest there. Then go to the opposite side of the mire to the east and check the old shack that should be holding another chest under the stairs.

However, if you still want to get the chests from the movie set, then at least try not to get too close to the big tree, where all the action is concentrated. Instead check out the boats and the trucks surrounding the set, and that's where you can get a few more chests without getting killed on spot.
