Published

A Fortnite dataminer has revealed the new challenges for Season 10’s week 8’s mission set which will be known as Storm Racer.

Fortnite Season X has brought constant map changes to the battle royale island, as well as new missions that have taken the place of the traditional challenges.

Like the challenges before them, the missions offer XP rewards, additional battle stars, and even special cosmetics for those who are able to knock off all 14 tasks. The Meteoric Rise challenges, which will unlock The Scientist, were revealed on September 11, but a new set of tasks labeled as Storm Racer will follow in their footsteps.

Revealed by dataminer Archer_Fortnite, these Storm Racer missions are the week 8 set of mission challenges for Season 10.

As the name may suggest, they will task players will spending plenty of time in the storm – even though, you are usually doing your best to escape the closing zone – as well as being able to shoot enemies who are making their way down from the battle bus.

Like the missions that have come before them, the Storm Racer tasks will include normal and prestige types so that can earn an extra set of rewards for the time you put into the missions.

  • Gain health in the Storm (0/100)
  • Complete a lap of a race track (0/1)
  • Survive Storm phases (0/10)

As ever, these leaked challenges should be taken with a pinch of salt until they are live in-game and you’re sat in the storm trying to tick them off, as Epic has changed things up at the last minute in the past.

Just when they’ll go live, however, remains to be seen as the wait for the v10.31 content update rolls on.

Fortnite ceaters are ruining Fortnite scrims and custom games

Fortnite custom games and scrimmages seem to be the biggest target for some cheaters.

Published

on

The issue of cheating in Fortnite has jumped to the forefront of topics since the Season 3 FNCS began. For some reason, it seems like an influx of cheaters has entered the game. Is it timing? Have a newer, undetected cheat popped up? We can’t know for sure.

When we completed our interview with a Fortnite cheat developer a couple of weeks ago, he assured us that his is one of the only cheats to make it past the Fortnite anti-cheat. Since then, we’ve seen several players be exposed – even expose themselves – for using cheats in Fortnite. These cheats were, reportedly, not from the same source. It would appear as though there are more ways than one to get past this anti-cheat.

There are some instances of players cheating in competitive Fortnite, but the largest pool of victims are those who want to enjoy a custom game or scrimmage. Cheaters are griefing these lobbies and aren’t even trying to hide it.

No-skin cheaters are running around with a Hunting Rifle and eliminating entire lobbies. They’re sacrificing accounts – knowing that these clips will get them banned – just to watch people freak out.

The issue isn’t that they’re cheating, however – it’s that the anti-cheat isn’t catching them. This is as obvious as you can make it, and it still gets through the anti-cheat. We have to assume that these players were banned after the clips surfaced, but what about someone who hides their hacks more carefully?

Epic have been silent on the issue of cheaters making it through their anti-cheat system. We reached out for comment back when Bman was exposed for cheating in the Bugha Cup, but never heard back. We’re sure that the anti-cheat team is taking the issue seriously, but the silence indicates that they don’t have any leads.

For now, Epic appears to be relying on player reports to find cheaters, which can be inherently flawed, as we saw in the Dubs situation. Just because something looks fishy,doesn’t mean a player is cheating. Hopefully, all of this gets cleared up soon and no cheaters made it into the FNCS Finals. If they did, we should find out this weekend – with the community so hyper-aware.

The 5 most hated skins in Fortnite

The Fortnite community is no fan of these skins.

Published

on

Fortnite skins have taken on a life of their own since the game came out. Back in the early days, we couldn’t imagine spending money on a free game. Now, hundreds of dollars later, we’re still padding our lockers as collectors of in-game cosmetics.

Some skins tell a lot about the player wearing them. A Peely? They’re just trying to goof around and have some fun. A Dynamo? Sweat is probably pouring onto their keyboard at all times.

Today, we’re taking a look at the most hated skins in Fortnite – the skins that elicit an immediate reaction from opponents. You better be ready for some backlash if you post a clip while wearing one of these skins.

5. Crystal

You’re going to notice a trend with this list: some of the most well-known “sweaty” skins are some of the most hated skins in the game – for that reason. Players hate them because other people think it’s what good players wear, and Crystal is a perfect example of that.

Crystal is one of the sweatiest skins in Fortnite right now, but it’s not the most hated. Sure, you may be annoyed with a Crystal player, but most of them are skilled enough to back up their skin choice. Still, it’s always annoying when you see ten or more Crystals in a match.

4. Aura

Aura, like Crystal, is a well-known sweaty skin in Fortnite. Unlike Crystal, however, it seems to be the skin that a lot of “wannabe” good players choose. There are good Aura players out there, but there are even more bad ones.

There’s something that’s inherently annoying about seeing a bad player use a “sweaty” skin – as if the community wants to barricade these skins and only let the best players use them. Aura might be the most common “sweat” skin in Fortnite, so this feeling has led to the skin becoming one of the more hated skins in the game.

3. Rust Lord

Rust Lord has always been one of the most hated skins in the game – ever since it came out in Chapter 1 Season 3. It’s no coincidence that this skin came in the Battle Pass that also included the “Take the L” emote.

Rust Lord isn’t as hated as he used to be, but he’s still an annoying sight on the battlefield – especially if you played Fortnite when he first came out. Rust Lord was the original “most hated” skin in the game, and deserves to remain in the top three.

2. Female Soccer Skins

Female Soccer Skins, like the Rust Lord, have been hated ever since they first came out. This might have been the first “sweaty” skin to come to Fortnite, and it remains in the category to this day.

Over time, however, constant releases tremendously devalued what it meant to have one of these skins. They were rare when they first came out – now everyone has one. “Soccer skin” means more than just the skin that someone is wearing, at this point. It’s a term that longtime Fortnite players will likely remember for the rest of their gaming careers.

1. Dynamo

Dynamo is – by far – the most hated skin in Fortnite, at the moment. If you post a clip while wearing the Dynamo skin, you’re guaranteed to see the bulk of your replies consist of something along the lines of, “Dynamo, ew.”

We’re not exactly sure why Dynamo has its status as the most hated skin in Fortnite. Perhaps, it’s because Dynamo a very sweaty skin that isn’t difficult to get. Unlike Crystal and Aura, a lot of players think Dynamo is, simply, a bad skin on top of the fact that it’s incredibly sweaty.

Whatever the reason, wearing a Dynamo skin puts a target on your back. If you hit the island wearing Dynamo, then you better be as good as the skin suggests you are.

Epic Games

Does this list mean that you shouldn’t be wearing these skins in Fortnite? Absolutely not. In fact, a lot of players like playing the role of an antagonist in all sorts of games. It can be fun. Wear whatever you want – these are just some of the skins that are in the community’s crosshairs at the moment. We’re sure that it will change in the future. Wear what you want and have fun!

Beware: these Fortnite car glitches can eliminate you without warning

Drive safe – especially if you’re on PlayStation.

Published

on

As we’ve stated in several of our articles, cars are the best thing to happen to Fortnite in a long time. They’re one of the only additions that truly feels new and unique to Chapter 2 – outside of fishing, of course.

Cars are awesome, but not perfect. As expected, there are a few glitches with cars in Fortnite – some more troublesome than others. Recently, we’ve seen a few clips that show players getting instantly eliminated while driving.

The first glitch involves the street lights in Misty Meadows. For some reason, these polls are more formidable than any of the other lamp posts across the rest of the map. As you’ll see from this clip – and a few more posted to Reddit – running into one of these will result in immediate death.

This isn’t the only death zone on the Fortnite map for cars. Players are also falling under the map in a few different regions. We’ve seen clips of cars falling under the map in both Lazy Lake and Pleasant Park.

Epic employee, EpicBoaty, replied to one of the clips, asking for the player to send the replay file to the QA team. They added, “if anyone is able [to] reproduce it, please immediately report it via the in-game Feedback button after encountering it, and then send me a DM so I can collect some information from you.”

The two clips of these glitches are a bit different. The above clip shows a player hitting a brick wall in Lazy before going under the map, suggesting that it was something that blocked their path.

On YouTube, however, we found another clip of a player going under the map in Pleasant Park. This time, it seems to be an issue with speed and rendering the map. It appears as though the player – on PlayStation, judging by his controller – outran the console’s ability to generate the environment, pushing him under the map.

Interestingly, EpicBoaty asked if the player was on PS4 in his comment on the Reddit thread, suggesting that this could be a PlayStation-only issue. At the same time, it seems like the QA team is still perplexed by it. There’s no mention of either of these car glitches on the Fortnite Community Issues Trello Board.

For now, we suggest that you drive with caution – especially if you play on PS4. We’ll update you if or when we learn more about this issue.
