Fortnite Season 7 Week 10 Free Banner Icon

Published

on

Fortnite Season 7 Week 10 Challenges are here! Once you have completed all Week 10 Challenges, be sure to collect the Snowfall #10 Free Banner Icon.

Upon completing all Week 10 Challenges a secret Banner Icon can be found somewhere on the map. The location of this Banner Icon can be seen by looking closely at the Snowfall #10 Loading Screen reward.

Epic Games tends to alternate between Banner Icons and Battle Stars for weekly completionists. Unfortunately, Week 10 will reward players with a free Banner Icon.

In the center-left section of the Loading Screen, left of the tree, a Banner Icon can be seen. The Loading Screen pictures The Prisoner warming near an Environmental Campfire.

This week’s clue was decently hidden, players discovered it soon after the Season 7 Week 10 Loading Screen was leaked.

The pictured banner is located beside a singled-out tree near the Race Track to the East of Retail Row. This location is rather secluded and should prove to be a nice spot to land once the initial wave of players has dispersed.

It’s highly recommended that players complete their weekly Challenges in-full, not only for the free Battle Pass Tiers, but to unlock the Snowfall Skin which is awarded upon completion of 9 weeks worth of Season 7 Challenges.

What has your favorite Challenge of Season 7 been? How would you rank this week’s Challenges in comparison to last week’s?

Many players are upset with Epic Games’ decision to omit the Battle Star reward every other week, do you agree with this sentiment?

How to get the most distance on your Crash Pads

Learn how to get the most distance out of a Crash Pad when rotating in Competitive Fortnite

Published

on

Crash Pads were an interesting addition to Fortnite when they came into the game, last season. At first, they were a great way to safely exit a helicopter, rotate quickly, and avoid fall damage.

Since then, Epic have added them to competitive modes. As is the case with any item in Fortnite, an addition to competitive means that players will find a way to maximize the benefit of a particular item. Soon, players began to use Crash Pads as a way to push into an opponent’s box.

People are using Crash Pads for their obvious mobility benefits, as well. You can carry up to six of them, and one pad will send you flying in any direction you choose. They’re a great way to safely skip the hectic Launch Pad frenzy that’s so frequent in every competitive late-game.

How do you ensure that you get the most out of a Crash Pad, though? There are a couple of strategies that work better than others. Reddit user u/somebodysgun posted a short video that showed how you can get the most distance out of the Crash Pad. These methods involve running forward on a ramp or, better yet, the “Dorito” cone edit.

Ten or more meters can be the difference between safety and having to use another pad/materials to tunnel into the zone. End-game is all about maximizing the effectiveness of what you have, so you and your teammates should be using these strategies every chance you get.

This video provides some helpful information that we can all keep in the back of our heads as we compete in Fortnite – nothing difficult or that requires practice. We’ve already seen the Crash Pad create several strategies, so we’re excited to see what’s next.

Fortnite Season 3 Week 4 Challenge guide

A complete guide to your Fortnite Season 3 Week 4 Challenges.

Published

on

Week 4 of Season 3 is here, and with it comes a batch of new challenges to complete as we work our way through the Season 3 Battle Pass. Most regular players have passed the level 50 mark and are onto the second half of the Pass. Hopefully, we have some worthwhile Overtime Challenges this season.

Epic have been going easy on us over the past couple of weeks. People forget that Chapter 1 challenges often involved searching through specific POIs to find a needle in a haystack. We still wake up, sweating, thinking about the Fortbyte challenges.

This week, only one of the challenges requires a bit of searching, and we’ve already covered a guide for this one. You can take a look at all of the Pleasant Park Floating Rings locations here.

Now, let’s get into the weekly challenges. This week, we’ll be eliminating players at Holly Hedges, searching Chests at Salty, and damaging players at The Authority – among other things.

  • Search 7 Chests at Salty Springs
  • 3 Eliminations at Holly Hedges
  • Collect 4 Floating Rings at Pleasant Park
  • Complete a lap at Motorboat Mayhem
  • Land at Frenzy Farm and finish Top 25
  • Collect 200 Metal from Rickety Rig (0/200)
  • Dance on camera for 10s at Sweaty Sands
  • Search 7 Ammo Boxes at Steamy Stacks
  • Deal 500 damage to opponents at The Authority

The only confusing part of this challenge might be the “Dance on camera for 10s at Sweaty Sands” one. You can find the camera to the north of the POI. Look for a canopy hanging over an outdoor film set.

The rest of the challenges will only take a few matches to complete. You could even finish most of them without trying, as long as you land all across the map. We’ll be back next week with another challenge guide, so make sure to follow us on Twitter @FortniteINTEL.

Fortnite Party Royale premiere ft. Dillon Francis, Steve Aoki & deadmau5

Epic have announced the premiere of their newest mode, Party Royale, featuring concerts by Steve Aoki, Dillon Francis, and deadmau5.

Published

We first heard about Party Royale in the v12.50 patch. Epic quickly released the mode to all players as a trial-run, at first. Diplo and Major Lazer even hosted a show for the test event.

It was only a matter of time before Epic announced the premiere of the full mode. On May 6, they did just that. Party Royale will premier on May 8 ad 9 PM EST. The show will feature DJs Dillon Francis, Steve Aoki, and deadmau5.

We’re not sure when each show will start and how long the premiere will last. We’ll likely get some reruns of the shows we missed as well – similar to the multiple showtimes of the Astronomical concert.

These shows in Party Royale will likely be closer to the Marshmello concert than the Travis Scott event. The latter must have taken months of planning to pull off.

Epic announced the Party Royale release date on an Instagram ad, calling all players to tune in and try the new mode.

The introduction of Party Royale is incredibly exciting for the future of the game. Epic want Fortnite to transcend the Battle Royale genre. They want it to be a social hub for gamers, and Party Royale is the first massive step in that direction. We’re optimistic about what the future of this mode will bring.
