All major Fortnitemares: Midas’ Revenge map changes

Take a look at all of the new locations in the Fortnite v14.40 Fortnitemares update.

Published

on

Fortnite v14.40 brought Fornitemares: Midas’ Revenge into the game. Midas has returned to his old stomping grounds with his Drum Gun and some RPG-wielding Henchmen to back him up.

The Fortnite map underwent several changes when the update launched – potentially the most changes since the start of the season. Ahead, we cover all of the new locations you can visit now that Fortnitemares 2020 is live.

The Ruins

The Ruins was the biggest change that came with the Fortnitemares update. At the same time, the changes seem a big familiar.

The location is now shrouded in shadows as Shadow Midas roams the hallway. This has now become the most dangerous location on the map. When you combine the undead Midas, Henchmen carrying Rocket Launchers, a massive number of players, and the new Shadow Zombies – it’s going to be tough to make it out of The Ruins alive.

Witchshacks

Witchshacks have popped-up all across the Fortnite map. These small huts aren’t too much to write home about, but they do bring the Halloween theme to more portions of the island.

The biggest reason to visit the Witchshacks has to be the new Broomsticks that you can find, there. The Broomsticks are kept inside of the barrels at these locations. You can grab one by breaking or searching a barrel – just like Fishing Rods.

The Broomsticks work exactly like Silver Surfer’s Surfboard. They propel you off of the ground and into the air, allowing you to glide as far as you choose. You can also cancel them mid-flight, just like the aforementioned Surfboard.

New Rift locations

There were a few small map changes in v14.40. One category of change is an expansion of the Rift Zones. Now, you can find Rifts surrounding some of the major POIs like Misty Meadows.

We’re still finding all of the new Rifts across the map, but they offer an additional form of mobility – always welcome when the storm is closing in.

These were all of the major changes in the Fortnitemares update, with small details still being uncovered. For instance, eagle-eyed players can find the Ghostbusters van and whack it for a cool Easter Egg.

The update is set to remain active until November 2, so we have several weeks left to enjoy the Halloween-themed Fortnite. Let us know what you think about all of these changes on Twitter, @FortniteINEL.

How to unlock the Armored Kratos style in Fortnite

Kratos from God of War has made it to Fortnite. Find out how to unlock the Armored Kratos style for free in Season 5.

Kratos has landed on the Fortnite island, but his single style isn’t his only form. Here’s how to unlock his Armored outfit.

After a full season worth of crossovers, Epic slowed things down with Fortnite Season 5. The new season was released with only one crossover character in the roster: The Mandalorian.

It only took a couple of days for Epic to add to their Season 5 crossover roster. On December 3, Kratos from God of War came to the Item Shop. This preceeds the rumored addition of Master Chief from the Halo franchise.

Although God of War is a Playstation exclusive video game, players on all platforms could grab Kratos and his skin pack. You know that Sony had to do something for their console owners, however.

PlayStation players who play a single game with the Kratos skin will unlock the Armored Kratos style for their skin – it’s as simple as that.

Unfortunately, Android, Xbox, PC, and Nintendo Switch players will need to stick to the standard Kratos outfit – unless you have a PS5 lying around.

If you don’t have a PlayStation on-hand, the only option you have is to ask a trustworthy friend to log onto your account and play a game for you. Giving out your account information is risky and usually a bad idea, so proceed with caution.

Hopefully for Xbox players, Microsoft will have the same deal with Epic Games when Master Chief comes to the Item Shop. He’s one of the most iconic characters in all of gaming and will probably be a popular pick on all platforms.

All Fortnite Season 5 Exotic Weapon locations

Fortnite Season 5 brought Exotic weapons to the game to replace Mythics. Here’s where to find all of them.

Fortnite Season 5 introduced Exotic weapons to the game instead of Mythics, giving more players access to them. Here’s where you can find them.

There’s no shortage of new mechanics in Fortnite Season 5, with the addition of NPCs, quests, and a whole lot more.

Mythics have returned to the game in Season 5 but in a limited capacity. The only classic Mythic items in Fortnite Season 5 include The Mandalorian’s Jetpack and sniper rifle, both available from the bounty hunter himself.

The other items in the game are classified as Exotics. There’s only one of each Mythic item in each game, but can be multiple Exotic weapons.

You can purchase these Exotic weapons from specific NPCs across the map. Of course, this means you’ll need to save up your Gold Bars to afford them.

Twitter user @MikeDulaimi created an easy-to-follow guide on how to locate all of the Exotic weapons in Fortnite. You can purchase them from NPCs in the areas surrounding Hunter’s Haven, The Zero Point, Dirty Docks, Craggy Cliffs, and Stealthy Stronghold

Mythic items were relatively controversial for the past few seasons of Fortnite – especially in competitive modes. Doom’s Mystical Bomb and Kit’s Shockwave Launcher dominated tournament play for the past two seasons, and the competitive community largely called for them to be removed.

We’re curious to see how this community treats Exotic weapons. They’re more widely available and aren’t as powerful as Mythics, making them more balanced than the latter – that is, until a player eliminates the NPC selling them.

Glitches

Game-breaking bug causing invisibility/God Mode in Fortnite Season 5

Players have already found a game-breaking glitch in Fortnite Season 5, causing players to go invisible and become invulnerable to damage.

Published

Fortnite Season 5 wasn’t released bug-free. In fact, there’s already a game-breaking bug causing players to become invisible and invulnerable to damage.

Every major update in almost every video game brings a few bugs with it, and Fortnite is no different. This is almost always the case when video games add new mechanics, as Fortnite did with Season 5.

This game-breaking bug has to do with the new sand mechanic. For those who don’t know, the center of the Fortnite island is now covered with quicksand. If you stand on the sand for too long, it sinks you in.

The quicksand isn’t a bad thing. It can actually benefit players, offering a hiding spot and increased movement speed, as seen below.

However, on the flip side, it’s also causing a bug that makes players invisible and invulnerable to damage. This isn’t the first invisibility glitch we’ve seen in Fortnite. Older patches had the same issue with Port-A-Potties.

This glitch appears to be more prevalent than the previous ones, however. We’ve seen several reports of this happening to players – sometimes even multiple times in a single play session. The Port-A-Potty glitch required more intention on the part of the players involved.

Hopefully, Epic get this sorted sooner rather than later. We wouldn’t be surprised to see the sand-sinking mechanic disabled ahead of the next update if Epic can’t push a hotfix to address the problem.

We don’t know whether this glitch is intentional on the part of infracting players or if there’s a method to trigger the issue. We’ll let you know when we find out more about the problem.
