Fortnite spaceship crash site and Ancient Astronaut challenges leaked

One of the upcoming Fortnite POIs and corresponding challenges have been leaked.

Published

Fortnite v13.30 released today, July 21. Most fans expected to see new cars enter the game, but they’ve yet to be released at the time of writing. Instead, we’ve seen updates to gas stations and the petrol mechanics along with a few leaks that point to upcoming changes.

One of those leaks involves a crashed spaceship on the outskirts of the Battle Royale island. This spaceship was piloted by a character known as the “Ancient Astronaut,” which will undoubtedly become a skin at some point. The POI is currently underwater, but data miner FortTory dried it out to give us a glimpse of how the new location will look.

This new location doesn’t look like it will be a hub of player activity – at least, in its current state. There doesn’t seem to be many chest spawns around this location. Instead, it seems more like a lore/challenge POI that will be entering the game when the water levels lower.

As expected, the spaceship has some challenges attached to it. The pilot, Ancient Astronaut, left some things behind for us to explore. We’ll have to find the ship, collect a missing part, install the missing part, and start or stop the launch of the ship.

The conflicting objectives point to a possible LTM involving this ship; unless players begin to notice a destabilization after they begin the launch sequence. We’ll have to wait and see exactly what all of this means.

Our first thought upon seeing this ship takes us back to The Visitor. The ship might be different, but the objective of the Ancient Alien could have been the same. This Astronaut could even be one of The Seven – trying to break the loop from inside of the Apollo universe (coincidence that the new map is named Apollo?)

Either way, we expect this ship to have some substantial Fortnite lore implications. It seems too intentional to drop it into the world without tying it to the overall story. We’ll keep you posted when this POI reveals itself and the challenges go live. Until then, we can only speculate.

Floating Rings at Steamy Stacks Fortnite

Fortnite Season 4 Week 9 has brought yet another “Floating Rings” challenge to the game – this time in Steamy Stacks. At least we’ll be able to glide out of the area when we’re done.

The five floating rings are scattered around the POI – both inside and outside. You’ll find them on the roof of the primary building, a the top of a mechanical piece in the center of the POI, above one of the tubes to the south, and inside two of the buildings.

We know that this description and image doesn’t give you too much to go on – this week’s challenge is a bit more difficult to describe than some of the Floating Rings quests in previous weeks.

To make things easier, we included a video from HarryNinetyFour that will show you all of the Floating Rings in Steamy Stacks and exactly where you can find them.

As always, we recommend that you complete this challenge in Team Rumble. If not, then there’s a strong chance that you’ll be eliminated by the horde of zombies falling from the sky.

Week 9 is a big week for challenges in Season 4, with the implementation of Forntitemares, the addition of a secret challenge, and the release of Wolverine’s Logan style. We’re going to have a busy weekend.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 9 Challenge guide

All challenges for Fortnite Season 4 Week 9 and how to complete them – including the Upstate New York and Heart Lake locations.

Fortnitemares is here, bringing a new list of challenges for players to complete. That doesn’t mean that the weekly challenges are slowing down as players finish up the Battle Pass and work their way to the holographic skins.

Unfortunately, we’ll be chasing some floating rings again this week. Apart from that, these challenges are relatively straightforward and can be completed within a few matches of Team Rumble.

  • Search Chests at Holly Hedge (7)
  • Eliminations at Slurpy Swamp (3)
  • Collect Floating Rings at Steamy Stacks (3)
  • Land at Sharky Shell and finish Top 25
  • Heal teammates with a Bandage Bazooka (7)
  • Deal damage to opponents at Sweaty Sands (500)
  • Dance at the highest spot and the lowest spot on the map

Sharky Shell might sound like a brand-new POI, but you’ve probably been here several times without knowing what it’s called. This refers to the remnants of The Shark, which was decimated by the flood. The removal of the 100% chest spawn-rate hit The Shark hard, and the fact that a lot of people will contest it for this challenge is going to make this a tough one.

We’ll publish additional guides that show you the lowest and highest point on the Fortnite map along with the Floating Rings in Steamy Stacks. The rest of these challenges should be easy enough to work your way through.

After getting your eliminations, searching chests, and dealing damage, you’ll probably be left with the requirement of healing teammates with a Bandage Bazooka. This one is always tough, as you don’t always have the opportunity to complete it in a typical Fortnite match. In our experience, the best way to complete this challenge is to grab a Bandage Bazooka in Team Rumble.

As always, we’ll keep you posted with all of the upcoming Fortnite challenges. Follow us on Twitter @FortniteINTEL to stay up to date with all of the latest Fortnite news, challenges, memes, and more.

Fortnitemares: Midas’ Revenge challenge guide

A guide to all of the released and leaked Fortnitemares 2020 challenges.

Published

on

Fortnitemares 2020 is here, bringing players a ton of new content to enjoy. We have Zombie Shadows giving players the ability to respawn, some new locations to explore, and Midas’ return from the dead after being eaten by a shark.

Of course, with a new event comes a list of challenges and rewards. We only have three available challenges at the time of writing, but data miners were able to clue us into what else will be coming in the future. Here are all of the challenges you’ll need to complete this Fortnitemares season:

  • Become a Shadow
  • Travel 100 meters on a Witch Broom
  • Eat Candy
  • Deal damage with a Possessed Vehicle
  • Detect players as a Shadow
  • Eliminate Shadow Midas
  • Eliminate shadows as Player
  • Visit Different Witch Shacks
  • Consume legendary loot as a Shadow

As we said, only the first three challenges are available at the time of writing. Becoming a Shadow is easy as staying in the game after you die. If you do this three times, you’ll complete the first stage of the challenge.

Witch Brooms can be found at the Witch Shacks scattered around the map. We’ll have a separate guide to these posted when the next stage of the challenges come to the game. You can find that linked here.

Candy is found all over the map, but the best place to find it could be at Doom’s Domain. It looks like Doom’s Henchmen have left out some candy for the kids. See? They’re not all bad.

Possessed vehicles have been in the game for a while – often called “dancing cars” before Fortnitemares came out. To find one, you’ll need to hop inside, exit, and see if the car starts jumping around. If it does, then you can use it for the damage challenge.

Finishing these challenges will net you some unique rewards including a back bling, a weapon wrap, two emoticons, and an exclusive pickaxe. Out of all of the recent limited-time rewards, this lineup is one of the best.

Fortnitemares Challenge Rewards

We’ll continue to update this post as more challenges become available. You won’t want to miss out on these limited-time rewards, so make sure you’re staying up to date with all of your Fortnitemares challenges!
