Complete list of all Fortbyte challenges currently available – Updated July 16th

Published

on

Fortbytes are ‘files’ for which players must complete new challenges to unlock. Each file unlocks more of a larger picture which supposedly reveals something important about Season 9.

Fortbytes are essentially a new system of challenges for Fortnite. While the regular Battle Pass challenges are still in place, Fortbytes add even more activities to keep players engaged.

Each Fortbyte challenge completed will unlock a small piece of a larger picture file/loading screen. The more you uncover and unlock, the closer you get to unlocking the secrets behind the Fortbytes.

What are Fortbytes?

There are 100 Fortbyte challenges in all for Season 9. However, not all of these are able to completed from the start. Many of the Fortbytes remained off limits until Epic Games unlocks the challenges.

Many of the Fortbyte challenges are much longer than typical Battle Pass Challenges. Some ask players to earn 100,000+ XP while others task players with completing Battle Pass tiers.

You can find the Fortbyte challenges in-game as the first icon in the ‘Challenges’ tab. The Fortbytes can only be completed/found by Battle Pass owners.

Fortbyte Challenge Menu

As mentioned before, only some of the challenges are currently available. Here’s Epic’s official information on the Fortbytes from the v9.00 patch notes.

Fortbytes

  • Fortbytes are a series of 100 collectible computer chips available to Battle Pass owners. As you collect Fortbytes, you’ll decrypt a mysterious image. Collect them all to unlock rewards and uncover the secrets of Season 9.
  • On the first day of Season 9, there are 18 Fortbytes available to find. At least 1 new Fortbyte will be unlocked each day. Check the Challenges Tab for detailed information on which Fortbytes are currently available and when the others unlock.
  • Fortbytes cannot be collected after Season 9 ends.

Fortnite split-screen: how to play with friends

Epic introduced the ability to play split-screen Fortnite in Chapter 2 Season 1. Here’s how to enable the setting.

Published

on

Epic introduced the ability to play split-screen Fortnite back in Chapter 2 Season 1. Here’s how to enable it so you can play locally with a friend.

Fortnite has always had a focus on playing with friends, but that always meant you had to play online. Even if you were in the same house as your friend or family member, the two of you had to play on two separate devices.

This changed back in the v11.30 update in Chapter 2 Season 1. Epic introduced split-screen capabilities on consoles for the first time. It wasn’t perfect when it first came out, but it’s since gotten a lot better.

How to use the Fortnite console split-screen feature

Initiating split-screen is simple. All you have to do is connect two controllers to your Xbox or PlayStation. Split-screen still isn’t available on mobile, PC, or Nintendo Switch. Here are the steps you need to follow:

  1. Start Fortnite
  2. Connect a second controller to the console and turn it on
  3. Hit ‘Main Menu’
  4. Player 1 will need to invite Player 2 with their Epic account
  5. Player 2 will need to sign into their account
  6. Player 2 will join and split-screen will automatically initiate

You can even save another player’s information on another account on your console, making split-screen easier and quicker to complete.

The feature still isn’t perfect and doesn’t replace the feeling of playing online. You’ll only have access to half of your screen, so you’re going to miss a few things that normal players will see. Still, playing split-screen is far more preferable than switching off with your friend or family member game after game. Enjoy!

Fortnite update v16.10 patch notes: Primal Shotgun nerf, Junk Gun & more

Published

on

Fortnite v16.10 update

Fortnite’s V16.10 patch is now live across PC, Xbox, PlayStation and more, with changes being made to the Primal Shotgun, other items, and a few bug fixes to boot too.

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 6 is now well underway and the first mid-season patch is here in the former v16.10.

The patch isn’t anything too crazy, there are no major map changes, game-changing new items, or anything like that. But, Epic have addressed the Primal Shotgun like some players have been calling for.

Additionally, Raptors will be available as tameable pets too, and cand be used to eliminate enemy players across the battle royale island. So, let’s get into the patch notes and check out everything that’s changed.

Fortnite Season 6 Wolves

Primal Shotgun nerf & balancing

As noted, the biggest change in this patch is most the nerf to the Primal Shotgun. It’s become so used since the start of the new season, and caused issues.

What have Epic done in this update? Well, the close-range weapon’s fire rate is being tweaked with while damage stays the same. The fire rate was previously 3.8, but thats been cut, though, an exact number isn’t known just yet.

Additioanlly, changes are being made to a few items and floor loot as both Animal Bones and Mechanical Parts can be found on the floor now.

Fortnite v16.10 balancing changes

  • Crafting & loot adjustments
  • Creative Powerups now support Team, Class, and All combinations
  • Primal Shotgun fire rate reduced
  • Makeshift Shotgun gets v16.10 adjustments
  • Crafting material costs now scale with Makeshift rarity
  • Animal Bones, Mechanical Parts added to floor loot

New weapon: Junk Gun

There’s also a new weapon in town as well, the Junk Gun. As the name suggests, the weapon fires, well, junk.

Not too much is known about the Junk Gun just yet, but it appears as if trash/junk will become a ammo type just for this weapon.

Raptors come to Fortnite

A Jurassic Park/Jurassic World crossover has been rumored since last seasaon, and now with Epic going with a Primal theme in Season 6, it’s time for Raptors to descend on the battle royale.

Expect to see these Raptors chasing down players, and eliminating foes as there are kill feed messages in the files for them.

These Raptors should spawn up around Forest areas, given that’s their natural habitat. They’ll also be tamable so that you can use them to your advantage.

Fortnite v16.10 bug fixes

On top of all that, Epic are looking to root out a few big errors across the battle royale mode and Creative.

There aren’t too many fixes but the ones that are being impleneted with this patch should solve quite a few headaches.

General

  • Cannot create system-level parties between PS5 and PS4 when playing Fortnite.

Battle Royale

  • Anomaly may not appear on Shark Island.
  • Chapter 2 Season 5 Legacies missing.
  • Visibility is extremely decreased when inside the Storm.
  • Opening the inventory will cancel Tap to Search/Interact/Revive actions.
  • Character Quests not counting for progression.
  • Stackable items are not split when Shift-Dragged.

Creative

  • Slow-motion effect.
  • AI can get stuck in obstacles.
  • Player portal appears as “Creative Don’t Fill.”

All Tier 100 Fortnite Skins ranked

Fortnite has given us a long list of Battle Pass skins. Here, we’re ranking all of the tier-100 Battle Pass skins from worst to best.

Published

on

Fortnite has been providing us with skins for over two years. Take a look at all Fortnite tier 100 skins as we rank them from worst to best.

We’re 16 seasons into Fortnite at this point, and 15 Battle Passes deep. We’ve seen hundreds of skins come and go with varying degrees of originality. Some are still in Battle Royale to this day while others are collecting dust in a crowded locker.

Not all Fortnite skins are created equal. Today, we’re looking at the Fortnite tier 100 skins and ranking them from worst to best. Let us know your opinions in the comments!

15. Vendetta: Season 9

The Vendetta is my least-favorite tier 100 skin of the bunch. The non-upgraded version is lame and the final stage leaves a lot to be desired.

This one was one of the most uninspired tier 100 skin, in my opinion. It doesn’t look very good, either, which is why it’s placed at the bottom of our rankings.

14. Ice King: Season 7

The Ice King is a skin you’ll hardly ever see in a modern Fortnite match. It’s probably not the ugliest skin we’ve gotten as a tier 100 reward, but it isn’t far off.

The reason this is so low, though, has to do with the size. This skin is massive and clunky, making you feel like an easy target when you’re wearing it.

13. Ultima Knight: Season X

The Ultima Knight is, simply, an addition to the OG Black Knight that ranks much higher in this list. This is a poor man’s Black Knight and everyone knows it.

Not only is the skin unoriginal, but it’s large and clunky when you rank it up. Anyone who already has the Black Knight won’t be rocking this version into battle

12. Dire: Season 6

The Dire skin is one of the cooler skin concepts Epic has added as a tier 100 skin. The werewolf skin, while interesting, is probably among the least-popular skins you’ll see in the game.

The base skin is boring and the upgraded version is too big – two ingredients that lead to a bottom-half ranking.

11. Ragnarok: Season 5

The Ragnarok skin sits right in the middle of the pack. It’s not horrible, but it’s not great, either. The upgraded skin is a little busy for my taste, so I take everything off and roll with the topless bald man.

10. Fusion: Chapter 2, Season 1

The Fusion from Fortnite Chapter 2 is decent but relatively boring. You’d be hard-pressed to find a player still wearing this skin – especially since there were far better options in the same Battle Pass.

I had this one high on my original rankings (from C2S1) but time has knocked it down to just inside the top-10.

9. Omega: Season 4

The Omega skin suffers from many of the problems as of the other bottom-half skins: it’s unathletic. That is until you take all of the armor off of the outfit.

I rock this skin stripped-down, just as I prefer the Ragnarok skin. It looks sleeker and cooler that way, in my opinion. The base Omega skin squeaks it into the top-10 – especially since you can change the color on the stripped-down version.

8. Mandalorian: Chapter 2 Season 5

This might be a controversial placement, but I’m not a huge fan of the Mandalorian skin. Fans of the show will probably like it more, but it didn’t really do it for me.

Sure, the customization options are there, but you’ll never go back to the pre-upgraded armor like you could with some of the other tier-100 skins. Baby Yoda is a hit, but the Mando skin leaves a lot to be desired.

7. Luxe: Season 8

The Luxe was the number-one tier 100 skin in my book for a long time. This is one of the only tier 100 skins that I still regularly wear when I play Fortnite, and one of only two female skins in the group.

The real reason this one ranks so highly is the back bling. Those golden wings are at least the second-best back bling reward in any Battle Pass.

6. The Reaper: Season 3

For some, the Reaper is going to be a number-one tier 100 Battle Pass skin. I understand this argument, but I never liked it, myself.

There were some bugs during Season 3 that caused Epic to hand everyone several Battle Pass tiers for free. The result was that almost everyone who bought the Season 3 Battle Pass got the Reaper skin, which is one of the reasons I never really liked it.

Despite my personal bias, I recognize that Season 3 was the golden age of Fortnite and this skin brings back the feels. It’s well-deserving of a top-five finish.

5. Spire Assassin: Chapter 2 Season 6

Fortnite Spire Assassin

The Spire Assassin is the latest tier-100 skin added to Fortnite in Season 6, and it jumped right to the top-five in my rankings. This skin comes close to the best we’ve seen in Chapter 2, but it’s too early to tell.

It’s always hard to rank a skin while the season is currently underway, but I’m betting that Spire Assassin will be a common sight on the Fortnite island long after Season 6 concludes.

4. Eternal Knight: Chapter 2, Season 3

The Eternal Knight is a strong contender for the best tier-100 skin in the history of Fortnite. All of the variants are cool and unique and the customizable pickaxe is another huge point in favor of the outfit.

Along with only a few others on this list, the Eternal Knight is still a common sight on the Fortnite island. As long as players are still wearing the skin, it deserves a high placement on this list.

3. Midas: Chapter 2, Season 2

Midas remains a favorite of a lot of Fortnite players, whether you’re using his Ghost, Shadow, or all-gold version.

The Midas skin is the best of both worlds. He’s slender, which means he doesn’t take up much of your screen, but he’s still a cool and interesting character whose outfit goes well with a lot of different combinations.

2. Iron Man: Chapter 2 Season 4

Come on, it’s Iron Man. This is how you do a tier-100 crossover skin, and the Mandalorian was a huge step back from Tony Stark in the previous season.

With one skin, you get both Iron Man and Tony Stark – which you can switch between in-game. If you leveled up the Battle Pass, you can also play as Gold, Silver, or Holographic Iron Man/Tony Stark. It’s hard to see this as anything less than a top-rated skin.

1. Black Knight: Season 2

I know, I know. The Black Knight isn’t technically a Tier 100 skin. It’s a final-tier Battle Pass skin, though, so it’s worth including on this list.

The Black Knight is the classic. It’s the OG. Wearing one of these skins doesn’t mean that you’re good, but it does mean that you’ve been playing the game for a long time.

The Black Knight takes the number-one spot because it’s one of the most aesthetically pleasing final-tier skins we’ve ever received. It’s not my personal favorite, but it carries a certain amount of significance for OG Fortnite players.

What’s your number-one tier 100 Fortnite skin? Let us know in the comments.
