Everything we know about Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2

Published

on

Fortnite Season 2 is almost here! This is what you can expect.

The long wait is nearly over. We’re only hours away from the new season of Fortnite. This season went out with a whimper rather than a bang, but players are excited nonetheless.

You might not have been as tuned into all of the Fortnite Season 2 information as we have. Here’s a refresher on all of the Season 2 teasers, leaks, and everything else you can expect when the next season finally releases.

Gold

If we know anything at all about Fortnite Season 2, we know that it’s going to be gold. Will we get gold crafting material? Will this gold work out to be some kind of currency? Will it only be a theme for the characters in the Battle Pass? No one knows for sure.

All we do know is that gold will play a role in the season. All of the previously-mentioned possibilities are on the table.

Agent Meowscles

Epic Games

Agent Meowscles originated as a leaked sound file in the v11.50 patch. When put into a spectrograph, you get an image of a cat and a fish.

Players later linked this to the Season 7 loading screen, “Feline by Design,” as well as the artist who made a concept design for the “Buff Cat” skin. This artist also happens to be the artist behind the Rapscallion and Scoundrel skins.

Of course, Epic all but confirmed the speculation with several teasers, including the one at the top of this section.

Explosives

Epic Games

Explosives are in the same boat as gold with Fortnite Season 2. They’ll factor into the season in one way or another, but no one is sure exactly how.

A lot of people are jumping on the teaser involving dynamite; using that as evidence of dynamite returning to the game. This could be true, but does that also mean we’re getting gas canisters and explosive balls of yarn?

Explosives might be ramped-up in Season 2, but Epic has been hesitant to mess with the meta thus far. An influx of explosives would change things quite a bit.

A return to Season 4?

Most fans assume that Chapter 1 Season 4 will have some influence on the next season of Fortnite as well.

Two teasers have referred to different elements of Season 4. We have the hero symbol, above, and a rocket pictured in a separate teaser.

Everything other than that is a theory, but Chapter 1 Season 4 looks to have some sort of impact on Chapter 2 Season 2.

Bug Fixes

Epic Games

Thanks to the Fortnite Community Issues Trello board, we know about a few bug fixes that should be coming as well:

  • Crash when selecting Controller settings menu that may result in blank controller layout.
  • Picking up DBNO teammate when trying to switch to Pickaxe.
  • Refunding can block input in the lobby.
  • “Could not join party” message wrongly occurring.
  • Temporarily unable to move or do any other action after Emoting.
  • Delay in movement after using movement key to exit inventory.
  • Unable to select traps with a controller when ‘Pick up’ indicator is on-screen.
  • Getting stuck on loading screen after accepting invite before selecting game mode.
  • Friend selection/scrolling issue.

Downtime for the patch will start at 4 AM EST (0900 UTC). You can expect it to last at least two hours, putting the release time of Fortnite Season 2 around 6 AM EST. We’ll see you there!

Fortnite Season 4 Week 9 Challenge guide

All challenges for Fortnite Season 4 Week 9 and how to complete them – including the Upstate New York and Heart Lake locations.

Published

Fortnitemares is here, bringing a new list of challenges for players to complete. That doesn’t mean that the weekly challenges are slowing down as players finish up the Battle Pass and work their way to the holographic skins.

The challenges for Season 4 Week 9 are relatively easy. As usual, we’ll be collecting materials, eliminating players, and driving from point A to point B – this time in a boat. Here are all of the Season 4 Week 9 Fortnite challenges:

  • Search Chests at Upstate New York
  • Eliminations at Lazy Lake
  • Collect Metal from Slurpy Swamp
  • Catch fish at Heart Lake
  • Eliminate opponents by hitting them with vehicles
  • Drive a boat from The Fortilla to The Authority in less than 4 minutes
  • Ride 20,000 meters in a vehicle
  • Deal damage to opponents at Sentinel Graveyard

We’re going to be getting into some road rage this week while we hit opponents with a car. This one is going to be fun. you have the best chance of completing this one by landing at Stark Industries, hopping into a car, and slamming into the people who land with you.

At first glance, we weren’t sure where Upstate New York or Heart Lake was. As it turns out, these two places are one and the same. Upstate New York is the massive chunk of land that’s home to Stark Industries. Heart Lake is the lake in the center of it.

Now that you know where to go for the Upstate New York and Heart Lake challenges, the rest of these should be as easy as playing a few challenge-focused games.

As always, we’ll keep you posted with all of the upcoming Fortnite challenges. Follow us on Twitter @FortniteINTEL to stay up to date with all of the latest Fortnite news, challenges, memes, and more.

Fortnitemares: Midas’ Revenge challenge guide

A guide to all of the released and leaked Fortnitemares 2020 challenges.

Published

on

Fortnitemares 2020 is here, bringing players a ton of new content to enjoy. We have Zombie Shadows giving players the ability to respawn, some new locations to explore, and Midas’ return from the dead after being eaten by a shark.

Of course, with a new event comes a list of challenges and rewards. We only have three available challenges at the time of writing, but data miners were able to clue us into what else will be coming in the future. Here are all of the challenges you’ll need to complete this Fortnitemares season:

  • Become a Shadow
  • Travel 100 meters on a Witch Broom
  • Eat Candy
  • Deal damage with a Possessed Vehicle
  • Detect players as a Shadow
  • Eliminate Shadow Midas
  • Eliminate shadows as Player
  • Visit Different Witch Shacks
  • Consume legendary loot as a Shadow

As we said, only the first three challenges are available at the time of writing. Becoming a Shadow is easy as staying in the game after you die. If you do this three times, you’ll complete the first stage of the challenge.

Witch Brooms can be found at the Witch Shacks scattered around the map. We’ll have a separate guide to these posted when the next stage of the challenges come to the game. You can find that linked here.

Candy is found all over the map, but the best place to find it could be at Doom’s Domain. It looks like Doom’s Henchmen have left out some candy for the kids. See? They’re not all bad.

Possessed vehicles have been in the game for a while – often called “dancing cars” before Fortnitemares came out. To find one, you’ll need to hop inside, exit, and see if the car starts jumping around. If it does, then you can use it for the damage challenge.

Finishing these challenges will net you some unique rewards including a back bling, a weapon wrap, two emoticons, and an exclusive pickaxe. Out of all of the recent limited-time rewards, this lineup is one of the best.

Fortnitemares Challenge Rewards

We’ll continue to update this post as more challenges become available. You won’t want to miss out on these limited-time rewards, so make sure you’re staying up to date with all of your Fortnitemares challenges!

How to get the Shadow Midas Drum Gun in Fortnitemares

Want Midas’ Drum Gun this Forntitemares season? Here’s how to get the only mythic weapon in Fortnite.

Published

Fortnitemares Midas' drum gun

Fortnitemare’s 2020 is here, and Midas is back in action after the minor setback of being eaten by a shark. Our old friend might not be in the game for the rest of the season, but he’ll be a boss until the end of Fortnitemares – scheduled for November 2.

As you might expect, Midas is patrolling his old headquarters at The Agency, which is now a Shadow-controlled POI called “The Ruins.” Here, you’ll find a plethora of RPG-wielding Henchmen who are more than willing to go down with the ship. Make sure that you have plenty of materials before aggravating one of them.

On the roof of The Ruins, you can see the remnants of the séance that brought Midas back to life. There’s a circle of candles with Midas’ golden chair in the center of them – levitating off of the ground.

Now, let’s talk about Midas’ Drum Gun. It’s not exactly the same as it was the first time around. In fact, it would be more accurate to say that Midas is carrying Jules’ Drum Gun from Season 3. This is, of course, the nerfed version of the weapon after the Season 2 Drum Gun performed far too well.

Anyone who played Fortnite during Season 3 knows that the Drum Gun wasn’t worth carrying back then. This was a season that featured the normal SMG, P90, and Rapid-Fire SMG, making the Mythic Drum Gun an afterthought.

Now, however, we only have the Silenced SMG and Tactical SMG – both with slower fire rates than the current Drum Gun. When you combine the Drum Gun’s fire rate with its larger clip size and increased damage/range, it becomes the best spray weapon in Season 4. The Drum Gun is an interesting example of how a meta shift can impact a single weapon in Fortnite.

The method of finding the Drum Gun is the same as it was in the past two seasons. You need to land at The Ruins, fight off other players, find, Midas, burn down all of his health, and take his weapon. This time, however, you’ll need to contest with the dozens of players falling from the sky as Shadow zombies.

The Ruins has to be the most dangerous place on the map – and it probably will be for the duration of the Fortnitemares event. Is the Drum Gun worth the massive risk of landing here? That decision is yours to make.
