Players can now play as Ryan Reynolds thanks to the all-new Free Guy Fortnite Skin.

To celebrate the release of Free Guy, Ryan Reynolds’ new movie, Epic Games has released a new Fortnite Free Guy skin. The skin depicts one of Reynolds’ characters in the movie named “Dude”.

Free Guy follows the story of Guy, an NPC banker in an open-world game called Free City. With the film focused on gaming culture, it’s no surprise that it would make its way into Fortnite somehow. All players can earn the free Good Guy emote as well as purchase the Free Guy Fortnite skin.

Ryan Reynolds Free Guy Skin

That’s right! If you want to play as Ryan Reynolds, you’re gonna have to pay the price. The Free Guy Fortnite skin lands in the Item Shop tonight, August 12, at 8 PM EST. The price of the skin will likely be between 1,500 and 2,000 V-Bucks.

As far as any other cosmetics, it seems as if Ryan Reynolds doesn’t need any other equipment. So far, Epic Games has only revealed the Free Guy Fortnite skin, but we will see later this evening if there are any other Free Guy cosmetics. This story will be updated to reflect any additional cosmetics when the set is revealed.

For those who don’t want to purchase the skin but still want to get in on the Free Guy action, there is a free emote that players can earn. You will need to complete multiple challenges presented by Reynolds himself, and you can follow our full Free Guy Emote guide.

The Free Guy skin likely won’t be around for long, and the emote can only be obtained until September 6th. Players may have an even smaller window of time to purchase the Ryan Reynolds skin before it’s gone forever. Make sure to have your V-Bucks ready for when Dude hits the Item Shop tonight!

Fortnite brings back Port-A-Fort to the game in v21.20

Fortnite’s most ambitious device is back in the game and now works even in Zero Build. Here’s all about the return of Port-A-Fort

Port-A-Fort has been in Fortnite since Chapter 1 and has been vaulted and unvaulted several times by the developers, depending upon the requirement of the item in-game. With the latest v21.20, the item is unvaulted once again for players to enjoy even in Zero Build to gain a massive gameplay advantage.

Fortnite consists of several items that the OG player base enjoyed back when the game was at its peak days. From Junk Rifts to Hoverboards, the community still misses those items from Chapter 1 and has been waiting ever since to be added back to the game.

While some items like Ballers, Traps, and Quadcrashers have returned to the game on a regular basis, items like Storm Flip, Junk Rifts, and Rocket Launchers have been left in the past. However, with the most recent v21.20 update, an item nobody expected to return was unvaulted and pros are loving it.

Port-A-Fort was unvaulted in a recent major Fortnite update where players who like to claim the high ground would once again be able to use it to their advantage. Not just that, the ones in Zero Build will also have an equal opportunity to experience the feel of the high ground as well.

A rather convenient device known for using “Zero Builds”, Port-A-Fort has been a favorite amongst the player base ever since Chapter 1 as sweats tend to use it to claim a high ground faster above their enemies and set traps for those who dare to enter their fort.

Moreover, the device helps players who are not good at building, gain a fair chance over those who are known for cranking speed 90s over their opponents and are quick with their edits. The return of Port-A-Fort was highly appreciated not just by new players but also by pros and veterans like SypherPK.

Sypher tweeted recently about how pleased he was with the unvaulting of Port-A-Fort and how it is a huge step for players who love to play Zero Build. Now they will have an equal opportunity to gain a high ground over their opponents and secure an easy Victory Royale.

However, in other news, the convenient item for builders is not available in competitive mode at the moment until further updates arrive. This might be due to several changes Epic is making with the competitive side of Fortnite which also might include the stability issues of the entire gameplay experience.

As players welcome back the classic Port-A-Fort back into the game, they seem unhappy about the addition of the new Charge SMG in the game. As far as SMGs go, this is not a favorable weapon to use when one engages in a sweaty situation while in a build fight or even in a fight inside your fort.

Combat SMG removed from Fortnite in v21.20 and replaced with new Charge SMG

Epic Games have now replaced the Combat SMG with a new Charge SMG across all their game modes. Here’s all about the new weapon.

Fortnite recently replaced one of its most used SMGs, the Combat SMG weapon with a more powerful Charge SMG in the latest v21.20 update. At a time when the SMG meta was going strong, this major move changed the opinions of the player base about the need for replacement.

The weapons meta in Fortnite Chapter 3 has evolved over time as players continue to discover new ways to use the overpowered weapons arsenal in their matches. With the disliking of Shotguns in this chapter, players have shifted their focus on choosing ARs and SMGs as preferred weapons in their loadout.

Back in Chapter 3 Season 1, players saw the potential in SMGs being overpowered in the game and developed a Pray and Spray meta to use them to lead themselves to a Victory Royale. The combination of an MK-Seven Assault Rifle and a Stinger SMG was mostly favored by the players as they went to combat against their opponents.

But with the launch of Chapter 3 Season 3, the Hammer Assault Rifle and Combat SMG were used in a similar fashion, although not as overpowering as its predecessor. However, in a recent update, Epic chose to replace the favored Combat SMG with a new Charge SMG that promises heavy damage and a stronger fire rate.

Charge SMG replaces Combat SMG in Fortnite v21.20

In a rather unexpected update, Fortnite chose to replace one of its most popular SMGs with a more powerful Charge SMG across all playlists. The weapon requires the player to hold down the fire button to charge the weapon similar to a Charge Shotgun and release a barrage of bullets upon their opponents.

The shorter the time the fire button is held, the smaller the duration of the fire barrage will be and vice versa. The weapon also has a cooldown rate similar to the Charge Shotgun which applies after a heavy fire barrage if the fire button is held down longer.

In addition to the update, Fortnite also tweeted that the Combat SMG has been removed from all playlists and has been vaulted indefinitely. However, the Charge SMG will not be available in the Competitive playlists until quite some time.

Looking at the above gameplay for the Charge SMG, pros and several players are already dissing the new weapon for its slower reload time and heavy recoil. The weapon takes too much time to charge the barrage and once released, cannot target an enemy faster than the Stinger SMG.

Pros like SypherPK, NickEh30, and TypicalGamer have all expressed their dislike of the weapon and would rather play with the Combat SMG than the new SMG added to the game. Apart from this major change, several map changes, unvaulting of Port-A-Fort, the addition of new movement mechanics in Save The World, and more were seen in the latest v21.20 update that the community sang praises of.

Indiana Jones Fortnite

As expected, the Temple Bloom landmark has gone through significant changes in Fortnite v21.20. It is now called Shuffled Shrines and you must visit it to complete the Indiana Jones quests.

Indiana Jones is the secret skin in the Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 Battle Pass. Following weeks of anticipation, the 21.20 update has finally introduced quests that will help players in unlocking the outfit as well as other cosmetics.

Here’s everything related to Indiana Jones that is a part of Fortnite v21.20.

Indiana Jones quests in Fortnite are now live

The following quests and rewards are now available in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 for Battle Pass owners:

  • Search chests at Shifty Shafts (5)- Indiana Jones Banner Icon
  • Damage opponents while riding or standing on a vehicle (500) – Rogue Archaeology wrap
  • Use the Grapple Glove to swing off trees (10)- Raider’s Relics harvesting tool
  • Collect the Durrburger Relic from The Temple and The Ruins in a single match- Expedition Bag backbling
  • Find the Secret Door past the main chamber in Shuffled Shrines- Indy’s Dustoff emote
  • Stash a Mythic or Exotic item in a tent- Indy’s Escape spray
  • Make Runaway Boulders roll for 100 meters in a single match- First Misadventure Loading Screen
  • Finish top 5 in a match- Emergency Raft glider

While completing four of these quests will grant the Indiana Jones outfit to players, they can unlock a Temple Explorer style by completing ten challenges.

Shuffled Shrines POI in Fortnite has new gameplay mechanics, Idol Artifacts, and more

The Temple Bloom landmark has now turned into a new location called Shuffled Shrines which is dedicated to Indiana Jones. Accordingly, you will experience the following elements there:

  • Emote unlocked doors
  • Different music
  • Puzzles
  • Traps
    • Allow Walls
    • Stream Traps
    • Poison Darts
    • Explosives
    • Trigger Plates
  • Torches

There will be a wide range of traps in Shuffled Shrines because players will have to collect Idol Artifacts from this location. Moreover, there will be three threat levels.

The Idol Artifacts represent Durr Burger, Tomato Head, and Object of Power. They will help in opening a treasure vault, and Fortnite will tell players if they’ve succeeded or failed in properly exploring the Indiana Jones temple.

Interestingly, the Object of Power artifact has three parts. You have to collect all three to make the fourth and final artifact.

The Shuffled Shrines POI has a secret door that is also mentioned in the quests. Players first have to enter a code to open it and then pass traps to collect the artifact. Upon collection, they have to again pass through traps and make it out alive like in the movies.

It is evident that Fortnite v21.20 has primarily focused on Indiana Jones and there are countless Easter Eggs for you to discover. Even though the cosmetics are restricted to Battle Royale owners, the new and adventurous Shuffled Shrines POI is open to everyone.
