Patch Notes

All major map changes in Fortnite Season 4

All of the new locations on the Fortnite Season 4 map



Fortnite Season 4 is here. As expected, Marvel heroes have taken over the map – including some new major locations.

All of the Season 3 bosses are gone, and the only new boss appears to be Dr. Doom in Pleasant Park. He offers a couple of new abilities, but it remains to be seen how strong they are. As is the case with all of the new seasons, we’re going to have to play for a few days before we know whether Dr. Doom’s abilities are overpowered, underpowered, or just right.

Ahead, we’ll take a look at all of the major map changes for Fortnite Season 4. We hope you enjoy them!

New Spawn Island

The first thing you’ll notice about Fortnite Season 3 is the new spawn island. We’re on a massive carrier, now. It doesn’t make a huge difference, but it’s pretty cool.

On top of the new spawn island, the Battle Bus got a change with the new season. We’ll let you experience that for yourself.

Doom’s Domain

Doom’s Domain is the only major, named POI to be released with the launch of Season 4. It’s still early, but this appears to be the only place that offers one of the new Boss abilities that looks to replace the mythic weapons in Season 4.

You can find Doom’s Domain in Pleasant Park. It doesn’t encompass the whole area, but it takes over a good chunk of it. There are Henchmen, Henchmen chests, and Dr. Doom, himself in this location. You can also find the vault in Doom’s Domain.

Sentinal Graveyard

The largest unnamed POI is known as Sentinel Graveyard. You can find this near the center of the map, on the hill that overlooks Weeping Woods. Here, you’ll find a plethora of downed Sentinals that offer you a boost when you jump on their hands.

There isn’t a ton of loot in this location, so you may want to hold off on landing here for a couple of days. It’s one of the only places on the map that will be undiscovered when you load in, which means it’ll be a hotbed of activity.

Crash Sites

There are several Crash Sites around the Fortnite map. This is where you can find the Drones and the new Stark Labs weapon. We don’t have the stats on this one, but it’s pretty slow-firing and doesn’t seem to be worth carrying over a normal AR.

Still, the drones in these areas can drop some powerful loot, so the crash sites are worth exploring. We count four of them scattered around the map, although this could change from game to game, we’re not sure, just yet.

There were a few small changes to the map, as well. For instance, Sweaty Sands got a full skatepark, which wasn’t complete in Season 3. Apart from these changes, however, most of the map appears to be the same as it was. We expect this to change over the course of the season, however.

Of course, there’s a chance that we missed something along the way – it’s still early and downtime just ended. Make sure to check back, as we’ll update this post with any major map changes that we missed.


How to earn the free Fortnite Crew emote in Season 5

Epic Games are offering players who sign up for the Fortnite Crew membership a free, exclusive emote for a limited time.



Monthly Crew Pack leaked image

Epic Games is offering players a free emote to go with their Fortnite Crew membership in Fortnite Season 5.

The Fortnite Crew membership is an interesting idea. Players can sign up for the system for $11.99 per month. In return, they receive the Battle Pass, an exclusive cosmetic set, and 1,000 V-Bucks to use as they please.

January 2021 was the second month of the Crew system, and it wasn’t without its speed bumps. Some players logged in on January 1 to see that their Green Arrow skin pack was nowhere to be found.

Even more players had to wait over 2 weeks to receive their V-Bucks for the month. The system is still new, but it’s clear that Epic have some polishing to do.

As a way to throw Fortnite Crew members a bone, Epic are offering a free “Members Only” emote to anyone who signs up for the Crew pack.

You need to sign up for a Fortnite Crew membership and log into Fortnite before February 15. This timing means that non-members can wait and see what the February cosmetic pack holds before committing.

The Crew membership, when it’s working, is a good deal for dedicated Fortnite players who want to get the most bang for their buck. An exclusive skin, pickaxe, back bling, and 1,000 V-Bucks is well worth the $11.99 price tag.

We’ll let you know when we learn more about the February Fortnite Crew pack. Until then, enjoy Season 5.

Fortnite Season 5 is offering players a plethora of ways to earn XP and rank up through the Battle Pass. The most recently-added XP-gathering method is through the XP Coins.

Most players will remember XP Coins from the past few seasons. They seemed to be everywhere back then, but they were removed at the start of the season.

Ahead, we’ll give you a map of all the XP coin locations. We’ll make sure to update you as more XP Coins are added to the map.

Fortnite XP Coin locations

XP coins are scattered all across the map. You can find them from Catty Corner to Stealthy Stronghold. Here’s a map of all of the available XP Coins, so far.

We’ll keep this post updated as more XP coins become available. You’ll need to reach level 250 to unlock all of the enlightened skins in Season 5, so finding these will be well worth your time.

Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 challenge guide

The Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 challenges are here. Take a look at how to complete all of them in this challenge guide.



Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 is here. Take a look at all of the challenges and how to complete them.

Fortnite Season 5 is chugging along, but there’s still about two months left. The holiday break extended the latest season, so there’s still plenty of time to make your way through the Battle Pass.

The Week 7 challenges are relatively straightforward, with most of them able to be completed without too much effort.

A couple of these challenges will have you searching the same area in Slurpy Swamp, so a favorable bus path in Team Rumble will allow you to complete them in one shot. Here’s what you’ll need to do.

Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 challenges

The good news in the Week 7 challenges is that all of them can be completed in Team Rumble. We have a separate article detailing the locations of Books in Holly Hedges and Sweaty Sands. You can find that here.

The Legendary challenge requires players to deal damage to opponents in Vehicles. This one is going to be a headache, as there’s no way to force another player to be inside of a car or boat when you shoot them.

Hopefully, you can get into a game of Team Rumble with like-minded enemies – sitting in Motorboats and trading shots with you. If not, it’s going to take some serious gaming to finish this one. Good luck!
