A new event is taking place in Fortnite, and Epic Games is giving away cosmetics including a free Rift Tour Umbrella.
Epic Games has been teasing an upcoming event called the Rift Tour. This event boasts an in-game musical experience like never before. Taking place from August 6th through the 8th, players will journey into magical new realities alongside a record-breaking superstar.
Not only will players get to enjoy a musical performance from a mysterious artist, but they also have the opportunity to earn a free Rift Tour umbrella as well as other cosmetics. Right now, players can unlock three free cosmetic items, and there are still more to come!
Getting the Free Rift Tour Umbrella
Unlocking the free Rift Tour umbrella is actually pretty simple as long as players are free to hop into Fortnite sometime during August 6-8. The only way to obtain the free umbrella is by attending the actual Rift Tour event. This is similar to the exclusive gliders given to those who attended the Travis Scott and Star Wars events.

- Interact with the Rift Tour posters x 1 – Rift-sterpiece Spray
- Use an Alien Hologram Pad on top of the Party UFO – Cloudy Kitty Emoticon

How to knock down Timber Pines with Ripsaw Launcher in Fortnite
Fortnite recently added the Ripsaw Launcher and we already have a weekly quest that requires players to cut Timber Pines with it for 15,000 XP.
Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 Week 4 challenges are here. Here’s a quick guide to finding the Ripsaw Launcher and knocking down Tumber Pine trees with it.
Amidst game-breaking bugs and glitches, Epic Games released the latest weekly challenges which will help players level up their Battle Pass in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3. The XP system is not at its best at the moment, so loopers desperately wait for new quests and challenges.
One of the weekly challenges is based on the newly introduced Ripsaw Launchers.
Where to find the Ripsaw Launcher in Fortnite?
The Ripsaw Launcher is now available as a standard loot item. Players can search for it on the floor, in chests, and in supply drops. The odds of getting the weapon are purely based on luck, but finding it in major locations like Logjam Lotus, Tilted Towers, Rave Cave, and Coney Crossroads, among others, should be not a struggle.
There’s also a fixed spawn location for the Ripsaw Launcher in Chapter 3 Season 3. There’s a Chop Shop near Logjam Lotus with an abundance of launchers. Even though this location can be highly contested at times, you should be able to get at least one Ripsaw Launcher.
Where to find Timber Pines in Fortnite?
The next step to completing the weekly challenge is to find Timber Pine trees. Here’s what they look like:
Timber Pines are basically the tallest trees on the map with narrow brown trunks, and players can find them in the snow biome which contains POIs like Logjam Lotus and Rave Cave.
The aforementioned Chop Shop is located right beside some Timber Pine trees, and it is best if players collect a Ripsaw Launcher from the shop. Using a Ripsaw Launcher is quite straightforward. Just hold the aim button and point it towards the desired tree.
You can either shoot ferocious sawblades that will tear through the wood or hold the aim button to use the Ripsaw Launcher as a melee weapon.
Completing this Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 Week 4 quest will grant you 15,000 XP and will also help in unlocking some bonus XP rewards.
All crashed IO Airship locations in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3
Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 Week 4 challenges are here. Here’s how players search chests or ammo boxes at crashed IO Airships.
Following the war in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2, the map now has several crashed IO Warships with a Vibin’ theme. A weekly challenge requires you to visit these Airships and search for ammo boxes or chests.
A new set of Weekly quests arrive in Fortnite every Thursday. Loopers can get 15,000 XP from each quest and there are bonus rewards for completing them all. These challenges do not leave the quests menu until the end of the season, but considering that they are quite simple, it is more convenient to complete them right away.
Where to find crashed IO Airships in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3
There are a total of five crashed IO Airships on the map. To complete the weekly challenge, you need to find two ammo boxes/chests. Hence, landing at any of the following locations should be worthwhile:
Northeastern Edge of the map
The first IO Airship in Fortnite is located on the northeastern edge of the island. Loopers can either land near Daily Bugle and swim towards the ship or directly land there.
It is safe to assume that this will be one of the least-contested crashed IO Airships. Even though there aren’t any fixed chest/ammo box spawn locations, finding one shouldn’t be a major problem.
The southeastern edge of the map
Another IO Warship can be found in the ocean at the southeastern edge of the island. Condo Canyon is the nearest named location but depending on the Battle Bus’ path, you can directly land at the location marked in the image below:
A crashed IO Warship is located near Rocky Reels. You can either land in Greasy Grove and head east or land at Rocky Reels and head west. It is worth reiterating that the challenge requires players to open a chest/ammo box in the ship, and not just visit it.
Towards the end of the war between the Imagined Order and The Seven, the final IO Airship crashed inside Loot Lake which is currently one of the best locations on the island in terms of loot.
It won’t be a surprise if you meet a ton of other loopers when landing at this Airship as Loot Lake has an abundance of chests.
Southeast of Coney Crossroads
The fifth and final IO Airship is near Coney Crossroads which is also one of the most crowded locations in Fortnite. This airship will at least have one chest and one ammo box, and you can also expect floor loot here.
Completing this Week 4 challenge will grant you 15,000 XP which eventually helps in leveling up the Battle Pass. The Chapter 3 Season 3 Battle Pass is loaded with exciting original and crossover skins including the likes of Evie and Darth Vader.
Fortnite Fall Guys event leaked: How to complete Crown Clash challenges
A much anticipated collab between Fortnite and Fall Guys is finally coming to the looped Battle Royale with some rewards and challenges. Here’s how you can do them.
Fall Guys is one of the most popular Battle Royale games that went viral ever since its release due to its healthy gameplay and exciting obstacle based games. Its collaboration with Fortnite has been teased for over a year and leaks show that it is finally arriving in the form of an in-game event with challenges that offer rewards to those who participate in it.
The collaborations between Fortnite and several video games always keeps the player base at their feet as they wait for their favorite characters to enter the loop. Moreover these collabs result in either in-game items, challenges or Item Shop cosmetics that loopers do not hesitate spending their precious V-Bucks on.
From Street Fighter to God of War, players have seen characters from various franchises arrive to the Gaming Legends series of cosmetics to the Item Shop. Most recently, players saw a brief collab with Among Us cosmetics, as the game finally arrived to Epic Games store a while ago.
However, the collab only consisted of a Back Bling and an emote which was rather disappointing but fans still bought the cosmetics from the Item Shop, given the game’s popularity. Now that Fall Guys is free on Epic Games Store, the collab between the two is arriving in Fortnite with certain challenges that rewards the participants with in-game cosmetics.
How to complete Fall Guys Crown Clash Challenges in Fortnite Season 3
Fortnite x Fall Guys collab is set to enter Fortnite on June 29 in-game with the release of Crown Clash Challenges. The challenges will go on until July 11 which means players will have less than a couple weeks to complete all the challenges and claim their rewards.
Players would need to complete these challenges in 5 rounds. This might suggest that these challenges would take place in a Creative map rather than the traditional Battle Royale approach.
Loopers who complete these in Fortnite will get 5 free cosmetics right in their locker which will only be exclusive to those completing all the challenges. Moreover, if players have their Epic ID linked to their Fall Guys account, they will receive 3500 Kudos after the completion of these challenges, in their Fall Guys account to spend in-game.
However, the challenges also seem to affect the points one could get in Rocket League, as per the leaks. Although, this might be a possibility as Rocket League cars were spotted in a leak to appear soon in the Fortnite island back again.
