Fortnite fans think this detail means a return to the Chapter 1 map

Fortnite players think that this detail in the Astro Jack skin means we’re returning to Chapter 1.

Fortnite players think that this detail in the Astro Jack skin means we’re returning to Chapter 1.

Fortnite Chapter 2 was a complete reboot of the game that we had been playing for two years. The map injected some new life into the game, and the item and weapon reset were fantastic for competitive Fortnite.

We’ve been playing on the new map for over six months, now, and players are already looking back at what we lost. Chapter 2 is cool and all, but it doesn’t have the same allure as the old map had.

Given the choice between the old and new maps, most Fortnite players would likely choose the former. Most of us had our best Fortnite experiences playing on that map, after all.

The release of the new Travis Scott set and the announcement of the upcoming concert have given some fans that “old Fortnite” vibe again. We’re excited to see an in-game event, but that’s not all. We also have a hint that the old map could be coming back.

Astro Jack, a skin that was recently released, has a selectable style with a map on his head. This isn’t the new map – it’s the old one.

This isn’t just any old map, either. It looks like we’re seeing a map from Chapter 1 Seasons 1-4. There aren’t any biomes or texture changes to be seen

SypherPK released a video that covered the new cosmetics, and heavily touched on the idea that the new map could be coming back. The streamer admitted that he hoped that this was true more than he thinks that it will happen, but it’s not out of the realm of possibility.

As Sypher noted, Epic don’t do things like this by accident. There’s a reason we’re seeing the old map in Astro Jack’s helmet. Will we return to the map during Season 3? We can only hope.

Glitches

How to enter the Stark Industries Vault without a keycard

Fortnite players have found an exploit that allows them to enter the Stark Industries vault without a keycard.

The first update of Fortnite Season 4 included a massive overhaul of almost the entire northeast portion of the map. Stark Industries has now become one of the most popular places to land, with nearly a quarter of the lobby chasing Iron Man at the beginning of each match.

It’s easy to understand why this location is so popular. Stark Industries offers a ton of loot, a chance for an early battle, the only place to obtain high-level Stark Rifles, the Iron Man hero abilities, and a vault.

We’re focusing on the vault, for this article. It’s one of only two closed vaults on the map, but that doesn’t mean that you need a keycard to enter. More than a few players have eliminated Iron Man and hit the vault, only to find a squad of players already inside.

The reason for this is a video made by popular YouTuber and glitch exposer Glitch King. He offered a video tutorial on how to enter the Stark Industries vault without a keycard.

A glitch like this one has been possible in every season since vaults first came to Fortnite. The good thing was that most of these glitches took so long to complete that they were nearly impossible to pull off in a real game. You’d have to build walls and cones, get a boat, and spam buttons to enter the vault.

This one, however, is troublingly easy. All you need to do is hit the back of the vault at the proper angle with one of the many cars that spawn in the Stark Industries parking lot. Simply land, grab a car, drive it under the stairs and hop into the vault.

There’s a small catch to this glitch, however. One of the requirements is a bad PC – or, at least, a friend with a bad PC. Part of the glitch requires the driver’s PC to fail to render the walls of the vault, pushing you inside.

Admittedly, Glitch King makes the exploit look easier than it is. You probably won’t get it on your first try, but there’s nothing stopping players from practicing this glitch in Battle Lab. Once you find the right angle, you’ll get in every time.

Of course, you’ll be stuck inside the vault until someone else opens it, but that isn’t much of a problem. The Stark Industries vault almost never goes unopened, so chances are you’ll be able to loot the vault and kill whoever opens the door for you.

This is a pretty broken exploit, so we hope Epic address it in a coming update. The longer it’s in the game, the more players will try it. For now, all we can advise is to be careful when opening the Stark Industries vault.

Leak

New Fortnite Battle Bus “Upgrade” leaked

Tony Stark is improving the Fortnite Battle Bus. Take a look at the leaked first version of the upgrade.

Published

Fortnite Season 4 is finally giving players a taste of what it was like to play the game in Chapter 1. The updates aren’t coming at the same rapid clip as they were during the last chapter, but they’re steadily changing the game by adding new content every couple of weeks.

Yesterday’s update was a perfect example of this. It wasn’t as big as v14.10, which brought Stark Industries to the game, but it made significant changes in key areas of the map. The update also released Wolverine, who is the toughest boss that Fortnite has ever seen.

The map is progressively changing over the course of the season and we haven’t seen the last alteration. In fact, the map isn’t the only part of Fortnite that’s set for an overhaul as the season progresses.

Players who have had a chance to breathe in Stark Industries have noticed that Tony Stark appears to be making alterations to the Battle Bus. You can find one of the busses in his garage. It seems as though Stark wasn’t content with the plain old bus we’ve had since the early days of Fortnite.

Thanks to data miners, we already know how the upgraded Battle Bus will look when Tony Stark is finished with his first round of alterations.

There isn’t too much of a difference with this first stage, but we don’t expect Stark to stop there. By the end of the season, there’s a strong chance that the Battle Bus has its very own Iron Bus suit.

As you can see, the sound of the bus is also changing. It appears as though Stark is focusing on the performance of the bus before moving onto the cosmetics.

One interesting question that we have is: will this affect the speed of the bus? We assume that a more powerful engine would allow the bus to hit higher speeds. The speed probably won’t change due to game mechanics, but anything’s possible!

We’ll keep you posted when we learn more about Tony Stark’s plan for the Battle Bus. We can expect to see this version of the bus come to Fortnite within the next two weeks.

How to collect Floating Rings at Coral Castle

Take a look at all of the Coral Castle floating ring locations for the Fortnite Season 4 Week 5 challenges.

Coral Castle in Fortnite

Fortnite Season 4 Week 5 is here, marking the halfway point in the season and, for many, the Battle Pass. Tier 100 and Tony Stark are only a few weeks away as long as you complete all of your weekly challenges.

For Week 5, we’re back to searching for floating rings in named POIs. We’re going to Coral Castle this time around, which was introduced towards the end of last season. Coral Castle isn’t a very popular POI most of the time, but it will be getting a lot more action when the Week 5 challenges come to the game.

Below is a map of the location along with all of the floating rings that you need to complete the challenge.

It would be best to complete this one in Team Rumble – which is disabled at the time of writing – but there’s a 50% chance that you get an unfavorable bus. Even still, you could probably stretch your landing and make it to one or two rings before being eliminated by the enemy team.

You can take a look at the rest of the challenges here. If you’re still looking for the Transport Truck for the Wolverine challenge, you can find that here. Happy hunting!
