Black Manta Fortnite trailer hints at the return of this fan-favorite weapon

Could the presence of the Heavy AR in the Black Manta trailer point to its return to Fortnite?



After much anticipation and hype, both Aquaman and Black Manta entered Fortnite on July 16. Aquaman was available as a Battle Pass exclusive while his rival came to the Item Shop. Epic have been dominating the crossover game over the past year. Fortnite is the only place where DC, Marvel, Star Wars, NFL, and Stranger Things characters all exist within the same universe.

Both Aquaman and Black Manta came with trailers. The former seemed to tease the rumored “Atlantis” POI within his trailer. You can see a new location in the background, which is either an unreleased POI or a callback to the map at the end of Chapter 2 Season 2. We’ll have to wait until the water levels go down before we know for sure.

The Black Manta trailer may have had a hidden detail as well, that many fans missed at first glance. As Black Manta and his team of Scuba Jonesys stormed the Fishstick compound, one of the eliminated fish dropped a weapon that isn’t in the current Fortnite loot pool.

If you look closely at one of the frames, you can see Black Manta pass by a Heavy AR on the ground – a weapon that was vaulted when Season 3 came out. The Epic and Legendary versions of this weapon were some of the hardest-hitting ARs in Fortnite, although they traded damage for a slow fire rate and large spread.

This could be a teaser that the Heavy AR will return to Fortnite this season. Although this weapon wasn’t in the original Fortnite loot pool, it became a staple of the game after it was released. An AK-style weapon is typically a must-have in all shooter titles, and Fortnite is no different.

We still have about a month left in Fortnite Season 3, which means that there’s plenty of time for the Heavy AR to come back. Most fans would rather see a newer weapon – one that wasn’t available last season – but some variety is always a good thing. The recent Unvaulted LTM has shown us that.


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 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!
