The Fortnite v11.20 update included game files for three weeks of challenges. Take a look at what’s coming next to Fortnite Chapter 2.

Fortnite v11.20 brought a ton of leaks and the first appearance of Fortnite patch notes since Chapter 2 began. Included in those leaks were three weeks of challenges that will be coming to the game.

According to some of the data-mined files, we’ll have a lot more time to finish these challenges than we originally thought. Here are the upcoming Fortnite challenges courtesy of @Lucas7Yoshi on Twitter.

Week 7: Trick Shot

The Trick Shot challenges should go live soon, and while most of these will be unlockable as you play, you’ll have to try for a few of them.

“Eliminations while at 50 Health or less” seems annoying, but it will be relatively easy to complete in Team Rumble. You’ll need a guide for the hidden ‘T’ location as well as the Pipeman, Hayman, and Timber tent locations, but we’ll have you covered when the challenges go live.

Week 8: Dive

Epic are back on their BS with the Dive challenges. This is one of the more grind-heavy weeks of challenges we’ve seen this season, as we’ll have to complete swimming trials at Lazy Lake and Hydro 16.

We’ll also have to get hip-fire kills and complete several other specific challenges that will require us to go out of our way. This is an annoying week.

Week 9: Chaos Rising

Weeks eight and nine for Fortnite Chapter 2 are bringing us back to the old Battle Passes with time trials and skydiving through rings. We’ll also have to use ziplines in this one, which are relatively scarce around the new map.

By week 9, all of the Fortnite letters will have been collected. After that, it looks like we’ll start to find XP drops in the loading screens. These challenges might be a tad annoying, but we’ll keep you posted with our guides.

How far have you advanced your Fortnite Chapter 2 Battle Pass? Let us know in the comments.

Limited Time Modes

Fortnite leaks point to the return of Getaway LTM & more

Fan-favorite Fortnite LTMs from Chapter 1 are rolling back in!

Published

The Fortnite LTM rotation was the subject of some harsh criticism for the first two seasons of Chapter 2. LTMs were virtually nonexistent for months. Epic tried something new with the Spy Games modes in Season 2, but fans never took to them as they did to some of the older game modes.

When Epic announced the Summer Smash event, however, they told players that LTMs would be returning. Most of these modes were smash-hits – particularly, the Unvaulted LTM, which reminded players how fun these silly items and weapons are to use.

There are still some unique LTMs missing from the lineup. Fan-favorites like ‘Floor is Lava’ and ‘Getaway’ were never added to Fortnite Chapter 2. Well, that may change in the near future.

Fortnite data miner, VastBlast, found threads of several LTMs that received hotfixes in the live Fortnite client. These LTMs include a couple of new modes like ‘Rags to Riches’ and ‘Tank Battle’ along with one of the most beloved Fortnite LTM in existence: ‘The Getaway.’

We don’t know when any of these LTMs are coming to Fortnite – if at all. At the same time, any change to these modes signifies that they’re probably returning soon. We could be seeing The Getaway come back to Fortnite for the first time since Chapter 1 Season 8.

Fans were delighted to hear that ‘The Getaway’ could be coming back. It’s one of the only unique Fortnite modes that doesn’t seem isolated to Chapter 1. We may never see games like ‘Air Royale’ or ‘Floor is Lava’ again, but there doesn’t seem to be any reason that Epic can’t release ‘The Getaway.’

We’ll keep you posted when we learn more about the release date of this long-awaited LTM. Follow us on Twitter @FortniteINTEL so you don’t miss out on any Fortnite news.

Longtime Fortnite pro Saf signs with TSM

TSM announces their newest signing: Fortnite pro, Rocco ‘Saf’ Morales.

Published

on

The Fortnite signings don’t appear to be slowing down anytime soon. The past month has seen some of the biggest names in Fortnite scooped-up left and right. Luminosity had a massive signing day, Clix and Ronaldo signed to NRG, and Bucke, Clalc, and HazThaGreat signed with BBG.

Today, August 10, TSM announced the newest member of their team: former Ghost member, Rocco ‘Saf’ Morales. The organization and Saf, himself, announced the signing with a Tweet and a video.

Saf joins ZexRow. Commandment, Reverse2k, and Mackwood on the competitive Fortnite TSM roster. TSM doesn’t have the largest roster in the game, but they have a collective of players who are always in the hunt to win any given tournament.

Unlike a lot of other pro players in the Fortnite community, Saf has been near the top for a long time. He and Zayt are one of – if not the – only duos left from the World Cup days, and both of them had been in the scene before that.

The continuous signings of Fortnite pros from tier-one organizations show that Fortnite – and the competitive scene – is alive and well. These organizations and players are in it for the long-haul. Fortnite isn’t going anywhere. Congrats to Safaroonie.

Fortnite Season 3 FNCS Solos qualification results

The Fortnite Season 3 FNCS qualification round has ended. Take a look at who made it to the Solos Grand Finals.

Published

on

The final week of the Fortnite Season 3 Solo FNCS Qualification has ended. All of the participating players have qualified for Grand Finals (barring any disqualifications), so all that’s left is to look at the heats when Epic release them.

With the last qualification round in the book, let’s take a look at the final standings for the three most popular regions in the game: Europe, NA-East, and NA-West. All information was provided by Kinch Analytics, who collected all of the data from the FNCS qualifications.

FNCS European Qualifiers

The EU qualification bracket features many of the names that fans have come to expect. Mongraal, MrSavage, Benjyfishy, Teeq, and Th0masHD all finished inside of the top 16. Out of all of them, Mongraal placed the lowest at 16. The rest were all inside the top 10.

Benjyfishy had tumultuous qualification rounds, but ended up finishing in second in overall points after winning the second week of qualifiers. Here’s a look at the top 29 players in the EU region. You can take a look at all players who qualified from Kinch Analytics here.

FNCS NA-East Qualifiers

NA-East is the more popular of the two North American regions when if comes to professional Fortnite. Most of the household Fortnite names play in NA-East, and most fans consider it to be on par with EU as the most “stacked” region in Fortnite.

The top 25 in NA-East is littered with recognizable names. Bucke, Bugha, Clix, Khanada, Reverse2k, Stretch, and Nosh all made it into the top 25. Khanada ended up finishing first with Bugha – the reigning World Cup Solo champion – in third.

Other popular players such as Slackes, Assault, Blakeps, Edgey, Jamper, Dubs, and Riversan made it into the top 100. Cizlucky, Calc, Unknown, Scoped, Chap, AV, and many others also qualified for Grand Finals.

FNCS NA-West Qualifiers

In the NA-West bracket, two of the best players in the region showed-out, once again. EpikWhale and Arkham came in second and third after all of the qualification points were tallied – behind Maken in first.

The NA-West region is home to some of the most consistent performers in the game, so it will be interesting to see how it shakes-up in the Grand Finals.
