Fortnite Season 9 Week 8 Cheat Sheet

Fortnite’s an awesome game with tons of variety and longevity, but nobody can always be expected to remember every little location. It happens even to veteran players due to the near-infinite possibilities for challenge spots. We’ll admit to getting lost a “few” times ourselves.

Thankfully, we’re not alone in this vast community of weary fighters and brawlers. Cheat Sheets created by @Energie provide detailed data about the week’s challenges in a easy-to-read manner. Seriously, if you’ve never used one before, you’re missing out big time.

Marking the locations for eliminations and landings is helpful for newer players, but as long term players, other parts of the presentation excite us. Pay attention to the map and you’ll see that the creator’s taken the time to mark out every single Volcano Vent and Air Vent on the map.

Such painstaking attention to detail is commendable and ups the quality of the overall product. You’ve got to adore the passion of the Fortnite community and its creative souls. Even if the game’s road is bumpy at times, the community never lets up the love.

For those wanting to show their support, Energie streams Fortnite regularly on his Twitch channel at twitch.tv/itsenergie. You can also find the creator’s Instagram at the top-left of the cheat sheet.

Fortnite v21.20 early patch notes: Indiana Jones, No Sweat Summer, Luke Skywalker skin, more

Fortnite v21.20 is right around the corner. From Indiana Jones to new content for the 2022 No Sweat Summer event, there’s a lot to expect.

Indiana Jones, No Sweat Summer, and other content that should arrive in Fortnite v21.20

Fortnite is all set to release the 21.20 update on July 5, 2022. Indiana Jones will finally become available in the Battle Pass, No Sweat Summer content will arrive in Battle Royale modes, and as usual, the Reality Tree will continue to grow.

The community has sky-scraping expectations from Fortnite v21.20. Even though map changes have been frequent and brilliant in Chapter 3 Season 3, the No Sweat Summer event and the XP system (in terms of more opportunities to earn XP) certainly need improvement.

Here’s everything players can expect in the second major update for Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3.

Fortnite Reality Tree to affect Condo Canyon, Sleepy Sound, and Temple Bloom in v21.10

First and foremost, the Reality Tree will reach major locations like Sleepy Sound. Loopers have discovered a new set of roots near Shifty Shafts and they’re most likely heading towards Sleepy.

Another location where we will see the influence of the Reality Tree is Condo Canyon. Interestingly, leakers have already revealed the upcoming themes. Like Butter Bloom and Logjam Lotus, Sleepy Sound and Condo Canyon will have recurring themes which include:

  • Froniter
  • Coliseum
  • Coral Castle
  • Neo Tillted for Sleepy Sound and Lazy Lagoon for Condo Canyon

There’s a Reality Root near the Temple Bloom landmark as well. HYPEX has revealed that one of the themes in Temple Bloom is codenamed The Tower in the files, and that’s the only information we have for now.

There’s a possibility that v21.20 only focuses on Condo Canyon and Sleepy Sound as the developers are yet to add the updated version of Temple Bloom in the files.

New Indiana Jones skin and temple to arrive in Fortnite v21.20

Indiana Jones is the secret skin in the Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 Battle Pass. It cannot be unlocked at the moment, and will be available from July 7, 2022. Loopers who own the Battle Pass wil have to complete special quests to unlock the cosmetics which include:

  • Indiana Jones outfit
  • Indiana Jones Banner Icon
  • Raider’s Relics Harvesting Tool
  • Rogue Archaology Wrap
  • Expedition Bag Back Bling

It is worth noting that these are the cosmetics on Page 1. These will not only become unlockable with v21.20, but you’ll also be able to get a look at the next page.

Even though this might be a stretch, but many players believe that Indiana Jones will get his own spawn location. The aforementioned Temple Bloom POI could turn into a temple dedicated for the Indiana Jones boss/NPC. However, readers must take this claim with a huge grain of salt.

New No Sweat Summer content coming to Fortnite Battle Royale

The Island Hopper quests were decent, but players were disappointed to see them as the only ‘summer event’ content. However, leakers like iFireMonkey and Epic Games itself have claimed that more summer content is coming.

NPcs like Unpeely, Summer Drift, and Boardwalk Ruby, and vehicles like Surfboards will return to BR modes. Moreover, you can look forward to completing summer-themed quests in Battle Royale that should grant XP and free cosmetics.

Battle Royale content will certainly help in making No Sweat Summer 2022 one of the best summer events in Fortnite’s history.

Luke Skywalker NPC

Epic Games has released a ton of Star-Wars content in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 which includes Darth Vader as a boss and his skin in the Battle Pass as a tier 100 reward. HYPEX has disclosed that there’s a Lightsaber in the files for a Luke NPC.

Based on the leak, it is safe to assume that Luke Skywalker will be released as an NPC and a skin, like this father. However, it is uncertain if he’ll be a part of the upcoming update.

Last but not least, weekly quests for Week 5/ Week 6 and Vibin’ quests will be added to files with Fortnite v21.20. There aren’t any solid leaks regarding weapons as we’ve already received three new weapons (Two-Shot shotgun, Hammer AR, and DMR) this season.

Fortnite v21.30 will release on July 19, 2022 following which Epic Games will take a summer break that will take place between July 24 and August 12.

Fortnite v21.20 update to introduce new No Sweat Summer challenges, NPCs, and skins

Fortnite will release the v21.20 update on July 5, 2022 and players can look forward to enjoying some new No Sweat Summer content in it.

After hyping up the No Sweat Summer event, Fortnite simply released some Creative challenges for XP. However, leaks suggest that new NPCs, cosmetics, and summer-themed challenges will arrive soon.

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 is all about Vibin’ and nothing suits this theme better than a humming summer event. However, No Sweat Summer 2022 has only revolved around the Firework Flare Gun and six Creative XP challenges so far.

It is evident that the player base isn’t satisfied with this year’s No Sweat Summer event. Fortunately, Epic Games itself teased more summer content and it should most likely be a part of the v21.20 or the v21.30 updates.

Fortnite promises ‘more summer vibes’ in a post about Island Hopper quests

Leaker iFireMonkey noticed that Epic Games’ official post about the Island Hopper quests states:

“Get vibin’ this summer in style! Want more summer vibes? No sweat, more summer is coming. Stay tuned for more.”

Clearly, Island Hopper quests aren’t the end of No Sweat Summer in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3. However, for now, not a lot is known about the upcoming content.

Leakers have revealed that Epic Games will at least release Boardwalk Ruby, Summer Drift, and Unpeely as NPCs on the island. While the return of these fan favorites will be great, the arrival of Midsummer Midas and Summer Meowscles will be like icing on the cake.

iFireMonkey reported that the Battle Royale modes will soon have summer-themed challenges as well. It is worth noting that the developers began working on Surfboards with Chapter 3 Season 3, and they will also return soon.

When will Fortnite No Sweat Summer event 2022 begin?

Ideally, Fortnite should release the aforementioned content with v21.20 which is expected to release on July 5, 2022. Having said that, it is important to consider that Epic Games’ employees will be taking a summer break from July 24 to August 12.

Fortnite v21.30 should release ahead of this break on July 19, 2022. Because Epic Games won’t be able to roll out hotfixes or other things during the break, iFireMonkey believes that the 21.30 patch will be the most content-loaded update this season.

All in all, loopers can certainly keep their hopes high for the No Sweat Summer event in 2022. While NPCs, challenges, and vehicles have been confirmed by leakers, Epic Games never misses an opportunity to capitalize on event-based cosmetics.

To be fair, the Creative maps for Island Hopper quests are fairly entertaining and a fresh breath of air from the sweaty Battle Royale modes.

Fortnite pro Cented kicked out of FaZe Clan for using hate speech

Fortnite pro Cented is no longer a part of FaZe clan. He was caught saying a racial slur on stream, and has parted ways with the organization.

Fortnite pro Cented no longer in FaZe Clan

FaZe Clan has removed Cented from their Fortnite roster after the pro player used a racial slur on a livestream. Here’s what’s next for the aspiring Esports athlete.

When Evan ‘Cented’ Barron joined FaZe clan in March 2021, fans worldwide had sky-scraping expectations from him. To be fair, he did gain a ton of followers across Twitch and Twitter and significantly improved his skills as a pro.

However, the former FNCS finalist and Cash Cups winner has been kicked out by FaZe Clan for using hate speech.

Why did FaZe Clan permanently remove Fortnite pro Cented?

While playing Fortnite recently, Cented joined Twitch streamer nothellfire1’s party and wasted no time in dropping a racial slur. It seems like he was not aware that nothellfire1 was live on Twitch.

This was followed by FaZe immediately announcing Cented’s permanent removal from the clan for using hate speech. The post clearly mentioned how the Esports org is constantly evolving and there is no room for racial slurs/discriminatory language.

Soon after, Cented himself admitted to using the slur on stream and claimed that he should’ve known better. The streamer apologized to the Fortnite community and acknowledged his immaturity and ignorance.

He said, “Somewhere along the way I let my ego get the best of me.”

Fortnite community reacts to FaZe Clan removing Cented

While some players are shocked that FaZe has parted ways with Cented instead of giving him sensitivity training, others like prominent leaker HYPEX did not hold back from making him aware of his mistake.

The mixed response from the Fortnite community is understandable, to say the least. It is fair for people to expect organizations to take rehabilitative measures, and it is equally justified for others to expect more maturity from adults like Cented.

This isn’t the first time that Cented has faced consequences for his blunt behavior. Back in June 2021, Epic Games warned him for abusing a young player and recklessly ranting about the Battle Royale game on Twitter.

Incidents like the one mentioned above have played a major role in decaying the image of Fortnite’s competitive community. Rather than being role models, the pros are infamous for being toxic and disrespectful.
