Fortnite Winterfest day 2 is now live. Take a look at the challenge guide for all campfire locations, the reward for the day, and the unvaulted weapon.

Winterfest might be the best holiday update that Epic has released. We have plenty of challenges to work through as well as double the rewards when you include the free gifts we receive.

Day 2 is here, and we have you covered with a challenge guide, the unvaulted weapon, and the reward for your daily activity.

Unvaulted weapon: Drum Gun

Epic Games

The patriarch of the spray meta family is back for today as the Drum Gun makes its return to Fortnite. The Drum Gun was one of the more polarizing additions to the game. It was extremely overpowered when it was first released and still too powerful once Epic brought it back.

The Drum Gun was the winner of the ‘Unvaulting Event,’ so many fans clearly have a soft spot for it. In the current meta, though, players will likely choose SMGs over the Drum Gun for more reliable spam-damage.

Challenge: Stoke a Campfire

The challenge for Winterfest day 2 has you stoking a Campfire, which is relatively easy once you know where to go. You can stoke a Campfire by lighting it and adding 30 wood.

Here’s an interactive map that includes all of the Campfire spawns thanks to LootLake.info. Keep in mind that you don’t have to be injured to use a Campfire, although it might be worth the wait.

Once you stoke the campfire – a challenge that shouldn’t take you too long – you’ll receive the ugly sweater banner for your character.

Banners were never an exciting reward in Fortnite, but they’ve become more attractive since Epic started allowing us to display them more frequently. You can turn one of your banner skins or back bling into a festive holiday outfit with this reward.

So, there you have it. You can quickly complete your day 1 and 2 challenges once you get your hands on a Snowball Launcher.

Which items have you received from the Lodge? Which one are you looking for? Let us know in the comments.

Epic delay Fortnite Season 3 & Device Event for the second time

The Device Event and Fortnite Season 3 have been delayed in the wake of nationwide protests in the US.

Epic Games have delayed Fortnite Season 3 and the Device Event for the second time. This decision comes following similar decisions from Sony and Activision, who delayed the PS5 reveal and Call of Duty season, respectively.

The team announced their decision in a blog post on June 3. The Device Event was moved from June 6 to June 15 and the new season was rescheduled for June 17.

“Recent events are a heavy reminder of ongoing injustices in society, from the denial of basic human rights to the impact of racism both overt and subtle against people of color,” they wrote in their blog post. “We’re acutely aware of the pain our friends, families, team members, players, and communities are experiencing.”

“The team is eager to move Fortnite forward, but we need to balance the Season 3 launch with time for the team to focus on themselves, their families, and their communities,” the post continued.

“The live event The Device will be delayed to Monday, June 15, and the Season 3 launch delayed to Wednesday, June 17. We know this delay comes on the heels of another one, and we appreciate your patience and understanding during these difficult times.”

Fortnite fans are disappointed by the news, but it was not unexpected. As we said, other publishers and studios have made similar decisions in the wake of recent real-world events.

The exact timing of the Device Event is still up in the air, as it’s now set to take place on a Monday rather than a Saturday. We’ll keep you posted with more news about Fortnite Season 3 as it comes.

Concepts

This spray concept would be one of the most-used emotes if added

This Fortnite spray concept is as simple as it is brilliant.

Sprays are one of the most forgotten cosmetic items in all of Fortnite. At least Banners have their own skins and emoticons allow you to use them after death. Sprays, on the other hand, tend to sit in everyone’s locker, unused.

There are a couple of sprays that get some attention, but Reddit user u/JewishGuyOnReddit had an idea that could beat all of them – and some of the most popular emotes that are already in Fortnite.

The idea is as simple as it is brilliant. Here’s what it is: “_____ was here.” That’s it. Imagine how awesome that would be. You could spraypaint your Gamertag or IGN all over the island.

This would be up there with some of the classic emotes as an instant purchase and a staple of the front wheel. You could even incorporate the dead body outline to show that you eliminated a player and tagged their spot.

Epic have incorporated a ton of fan-made cosmetic items, and we’d like to submit this one for their review. Let’s bring sprays back with this one!

Ninja goes off on ‘boring’ Fortnite Chapter 2: ready for a new Season

Ninja calls the recent Fortnite seasons “boring” but remains hopeful for Season 3.

Published

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 is second only to Chapter 2 Season 1 as the longest season in Fortnite history. This season, like the previous one, has also offered little in the way of new content to players who hop on the Battle Bus every day.

During a recent stream, Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins unleashed his fury upon the recent state of Fortnite. He echoed the complaints of many longtime Fortnite players. His perspective might be a bit amplified by the number of hours he’s put into the game in the past year, but it’s relatable to many in the community.

“I don’t want to play Fortnite right now,” Ninja told his chat. “It’s boring, there’s nothing new/ I’m having a little bit of fun, sometimes, but we’ve been playing the same map … the only new places that they’ve added are places with Henchmen that beam you, and laser you, and s**t on your walls.”

In a moment of self-reflection, Ninja admitted that he’s starting to “sound like Turner (Tfue).” He acknowledged that he’s having more fun with Fortnite than other times in the past, but misses the variety that old Fortnite seasons brought us.

“It blows my mind that we were forced to play the very first Season 1 for, like, 120 days,” Ninja continued before looking at the chart that showed the length of each season. “Double the length of seasons with half the content. Two seasons have almost taken up a year!”

Ninja is giving a voice to a large portion of the community who are eager for Season 3 to come out. Rumors are swirling about an additional delay to the next season due to the protests in the United States. Epic and Loserfruit just announced a delay to her Icon Series skin for that reason.

We have yet to hear any official news about a Season 3 delay, just yet. Of course, we’ll keep you covered if that changes.
