Each week’s Fortnite challenges can be a little difficult to complete with limited time, but it’s all a bit easier with a cheat sheet.
Every week, Epic Games releases a new wave of challenges for Fortnite Battle Pass players. Some of these challenges are free while others require the Battle Pass purchase.
Some of the challenges can be self explanatory, but others require extensive knowledge of the game world. We can’t all be bothered to know every nook, but thankfully there is someone who does.

Darth Vader in Fortnite has a ton of Easter Eggs
Fortnite introduced Darth Vader as a boss in Chapter 3 Season 3. Here are some easter eggs that Star Wars fans must know about.
Darth Vader is one of the biggest highlights of Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3. True to its nature, Epic Games has included several Star Wars easter eggs with The Chosen One.
Even though Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 didn’t turn out to be a Star-Wars themed season, fans were finally able to witness Darth Vader. He is a tier 100 reward in the current Battle Pass and is also a boss.
Darth Vader is rightly one of the most terrifying bosses in Fortnite history. However, this is not the only thing that makes this crossover genuine and detailed.
Fun facts about Darth Vader in Fortnite
Over the past few weeks, the community has discovered these hidden details about Darth Vader:
Darth Vader boss doesn’t spawn in the island’s desert biome
Darth Vader doesn’t like sand. In a famous Attack of the Clones scene, he says:
“I don’t like sand. It’s coarse, rough, and irritating, and it gets everywhere.”
In addition to that, it is practical enough for someone in a robotic suit to avoid sand. This might be why Darth Vader doesn’t spawn in the desert biome of Fortnite island. In contrast, the boss has two spawn locations in the snow biome, two in the forest, and one in the latest mushroom-themed region.
Hence, Darth Vader’s hatred for sand seems to be the reason why he avoids the desert biome in Fortnite.
Darth Vader’s breathing sound
Darth Vader’s breathing is somehow quite popular among fans. It signifies that the character was once human, and creates an intimidating atmosphere even during silence.
There’s a trick to activate Darth Vader’s breathing in Fortnite. If you go to the Audio settings and ‘Mute All’ the Licensed Audio from the ‘Creator Options’, the Imperial March emote will only play a breathing sound.
Darth Vader takes a knee
Darth Vader is not allowed to die for legal reasons. Fortnite cannot be an exception to this rule, which is why when players defeat the boss, he takes a knee and disappears. This is also a reference to the Star Wars Battlefront game.
Defeating Darth Vader is challenging owing to his overpowered Melee abilities. However, you can refer to our guide and try out this easter egg.
Epic Games didn’t have to add any of these easter eggs to make Darth Vader better. The boss and the skin are great regardless but the community always appreciates such attention to detail.
Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 NPC hints at the return of Klombo
Loopers can still not get over the sudden disappearance of Klombo in Fortnite Chapter 3. Here’s why their return could be closer than ever.
The war between the Imagined Order and The Seven in Fortnite had disastrous consequences including the expulsion of Klombo from the island. However, Haven is curious about the mysterious vanishing of the species.
Klombo is undoubtedly one of the most adorable features in the history of Fortnite. The giant dinosaurs roamed around the island on the new Chapter 3 island and provided players with loot, jump boosts, and countless memories.
However, we haven’t seen Klombo since Chapter 3 Season 2. Just like every other looper, Haven is worried about the dinosaurs and looks forward to their return.
What happened to Klombo in Fortnite?
Even though Klombo wasn’t present on the map during Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2, loopers could still discover Klombo mounds. Accordingly, it seemed safe to assume that they were simply avoiding the war and will return soon.
There is a Klombo skeleton on the Chapter 3 Season 3 island which naturally shattered all expectations regarding their return. Having said that, anything and everything is possible in Fortnite, thanks to the Zero Point.
Here’s what Haven says when players interact with her while wearing special skins like Indiana Jones (to be released) and Mecha team leader:
- I followed some Klombo tracks here, but they disappear.
- The Klombo disappeared in the same strange flash of light that brought them here.
- Have you seen any Klombo on your travels?
It is evident that Haven cannot digest how Dr. Slone managed to get rid of Klombo. She believes that the unstable Zero Point is the real reason behind their extinction which is why she also mentions a ‘strange flash of light’.
Epic Games was working on Klombo before putting them in the vault
A few weeks back, leakers revealed that Epic Games is not done with Klombo. In fact, the developers have been trying to make the dinosaurs killable and make them drop a ton of great loot.
Another leak disclosed that Klombo will soon be able to dance when players emote near them. Hence, it makes no sense for Fortnite to work on a wide range of features and then remove them altogether.
Moreover, the majority of the Fortnite community absolutely loves Klombo and their return will be highly appreciated. Content in Chapter 3 has been based on the player base’s demands, and to be fair, permanently removing Klombo is not desirable at all.
For now, loopers cannot do much but wait for new information on Klombo. However, we can assure you that the dinosaurs will return in Chapter 3 with the help of Haven and Zero Point.
Fortnite bugs enable friendly fire, rebooting in Solos, and other bizarre features
While minor XP glitches and gameplay-related bugs have been common in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3, the game became unplayable recently.
The prominence of bugs and glitches has been a glaring issue in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3. Loopers recently reported a wide range of peculiar bugs that affected the core mechanics of every mode.
Even AAA titles like Fortnite cannot avoid bugs. However, coding errors are usually fixable and do not impact the meta. Unfortunately, this hasn’t been the case in Chapter 3 Season 3 as loopers have come across a plethora of game-breaking glitches already.
From revealing the position of opponents to changing Solos matches into Duos, here’s everything that Fortnite players have experienced in their recent matches.
Fortnite lobbies become non-functional due to a mysterious bug
Notable leakers and thousands of casual players have fronted following issues in Fortnite:
- Loopers are able to see the locations of all enemies on the mini map. Apparently, the game puts all the players from the same region in a single team which is why they’re able to see each other’s whereabouts.
- Random players join your team even when playing Solos.
- People are eliminated randomly without taking any fights or damage.
- You can get kicked out for cross-teaming.
- You can edit an opponent’s builds.
A leaker uploaded a clip on Twitter that will surely help readers in understanding the severity of the situation.
The player was able to notice the locations of several nearby opponents and a bunch of random players were added to their team. To make things worse, the game randomly eliminated them in the seventeenth position.
Countless such clips went viral on social media platforms in the past few hours. While some players discovered that friendly fire is back, others bagged Victory Royales with their opponents (we know, it makes no sense).
Last but not least, YouTuber gattu informed that Fortnite allowed players to use reboot vans in Solos.
Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 is now infamous for glitches and server issues
This isn’t the first time that loopers have faced such game-breaking glitches in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3. From temporarily disabling Bushy’s Bulb back bling to removing animals from competitive, Epic Games has repeatedly tried to improve the server’s performance but all in vain.
It seems like the aforementioned bugs are no longer occurring and restarting the game has solved it for many players. Surprisingly, loopers loved this dreadful state of Fortnite, but only because it was temporary.
In hindsight, the current state of Fortnite is indeed unsettling. The developers have been releasing a ton of fresh content with every update, but it is usually accompanied by equally extraordinary bugs.
