Fortnite v14.10 patch notes

Epic Games have finally rolled out their Fortnite v14.10 update, with a boat load of new features – including new Mythic Item abilities, character customization with ‘Become a Hero’, and more.

Fortnite’s Marvel-themed season has been off to a blistering start with tons of new content for fans to get familiar with. While we’re just a few weeks into the ongoing Nexus War, Epic Games is continuing to roll out fresh updates.

Version 14.10 is on the horizon and there will be a few key changes. With a lot to get through, let’s jump right into it with the patch notes.

Fortnite v14.10 patch notes

It’s rare that we get official patch notes these days, but we have put in the hard yards and thrown some together ourselves with all confirmed changes.

Stark Industries POI

A new Stark Industries location has appeared in the northeast corner of the Fortnite map, and it looks insane. Taking up a huge amount of land, here’s how it looks in-game.

Alongside that, a change to the Fortnite Item Shop has occurred. ““Tony Stark’s temporal beacon brings Stark Industries to the Island. Explore the Research & Development Lab, and Battle Bus chop shop,” a statement reads.

Mint-Condition LTM

There’s a new Marvel themed limited time mode coming in Fortnite, called ‘Mint-Condition’. Here, players will be able to mix and match different Fortnite superheroes to battle for victory.

Become a Hero

A load of new customization options have been added to Fortnite, allowing players to create their own superheroes in-game.

As seen below, this includes tons of new mask options and outfit designs, taking the game’s skin options to a whole other level. You can even edit hair styles, color, and more – as seen from HYPEX’s screenshot.

One of these options is to edit a skin’s corruption.

Customization assets, revealed by VastBlast, can also be seen below.

Map changes

Here’s how the Fortnite Season 4 map looks following the patch. A full breakdown of the changes can be found here.

How to earn the free Fortnite Crew emote in Season 5

Epic Games are offering players who sign up for the Fortnite Crew membership a free, exclusive emote for a limited time.

Monthly Crew Pack leaked image

Epic Games is offering players a free emote to go with their Fortnite Crew membership in Fortnite Season 5.

The Fortnite Crew membership is an interesting idea. Players can sign up for the system for $11.99 per month. In return, they receive the Battle Pass, an exclusive cosmetic set, and 1,000 V-Bucks to use as they please.

January 2021 was the second month of the Crew system, and it wasn’t without its speed bumps. Some players logged in on January 1 to see that their Green Arrow skin pack was nowhere to be found.

Even more players had to wait over 2 weeks to receive their V-Bucks for the month. The system is still new, but it’s clear that Epic have some polishing to do.

As a way to throw Fortnite Crew members a bone, Epic are offering a free “Members Only” emote to anyone who signs up for the Crew pack.

You need to sign up for a Fortnite Crew membership and log into Fortnite before February 15. This timing means that non-members can wait and see what the February cosmetic pack holds before committing.

The Crew membership, when it’s working, is a good deal for dedicated Fortnite players who want to get the most bang for their buck. An exclusive skin, pickaxe, back bling, and 1,000 V-Bucks is well worth the $11.99 price tag.

We’ll let you know when we learn more about the February Fortnite Crew pack. Until then, enjoy Season 5.

XP Coins have returned to Fortnite Season 5. Here’s where to find all of them as of Season 5 Week 7.

Fortnite Season 5 is offering players a plethora of ways to earn XP and rank up through the Battle Pass. The most recently-added XP-gathering method is through the XP Coins.

Most players will remember XP Coins from the past few seasons. They seemed to be everywhere back then, but they were removed at the start of the season.

Ahead, we’ll give you a map of all the XP coin locations. We’ll make sure to update you as more XP Coins are added to the map.

Fortnite XP Coin locations

XP coins are scattered all across the map. You can find them from Catty Corner to Stealthy Stronghold. Here’s a map of all of the available XP Coins, so far.

We’ll keep this post updated as more XP coins become available. You’ll need to reach level 250 to unlock all of the enlightened skins in Season 5, so finding these will be well worth your time.

Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 challenge guide

The Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 challenges are here. Take a look at how to complete all of them in this challenge guide.

Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 is here. Take a look at all of the challenges and how to complete them.

Fortnite Season 5 is chugging along, but there’s still about two months left. The holiday break extended the latest season, so there’s still plenty of time to make your way through the Battle Pass.

The Week 7 challenges are relatively straightforward, with most of them able to be completed without too much effort.

A couple of these challenges will have you searching the same area in Slurpy Swamp, so a favorable bus path in Team Rumble will allow you to complete them in one shot. Here’s what you’ll need to do.

Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 challenges

The good news in the Week 7 challenges is that all of them can be completed in Team Rumble. We have a separate article detailing the locations of Books in Holly Hedges and Sweaty Sands. You can find that here.

The Legendary challenge requires players to deal damage to opponents in Vehicles. This one is going to be a headache, as there’s no way to force another player to be inside of a car or boat when you shoot them.

Hopefully, you can get into a game of Team Rumble with like-minded enemies – sitting in Motorboats and trading shots with you. If not, it’s going to take some serious gaming to finish this one. Good luck!
