GUIDE: How to complete Fortbyte 04 ‘skydiving through rings above Loot Lake’



Fortbytes. The daily treats that keep on giving us more Fortnite content. July 5th’s challenge will send us all soaring into the skies above Loot Lake with our recently unlocked Plasma Trails.

We’ve all been completing Fortbyte challenges since Day 1 of Season 9 and it’s been an enjoyable journey. The variety of challenge types could be a little better, but we won’t complain too much about free daily content.

Many of these computer chips will only unlock for players who have earned a Battle Pass Cosmetic. Gradually, the tier required by the challenge has increased as the weeks have passed.

How to complete the Fortbyte #04 Challenge

Completing Fortbyte challenges isn’t necessarily difficult and Epic doesn’t intend for them to be. However, they can be time consuming without a clear path or plan to work from. So, tell you what. We’ll provide the plan and you get the Fortbyte. Win-win, right?

Loot Lake

Let’s go through this challenges step-by-step, inch-by-inch.

  1. Ensure you’ve unlocked Battle Pass Tier 89, if so, skip to Step 3.
  2. If you haven’t unlocked Battle Pass Tier 89, do so now.
  3. Equip the Plasma Trail contrail
  4. Hop into any core Battle Royale mode or Team Rumble
  5. Dance around a bit in the lobby (optional)
  6. Hop out of the Battle Bus and head towards Loot Lake
  7. Look for a brightly colored (blue/purple) ring, fly through it
  8. Fly through a total of four rings and the Fortbyte will unlock

14 Days of Summer & Prior Fortbyte Challenges

Along with the constant bombardment of Fortbytes, we’ve also been experiencing a 100% chance of summer challenges. Epic Games went on vacation left us one of Fortnite’s best events to play around with until they return.

The 14 Days of Summer event tasks differ from Fortbyte and Season 9 Battle Pass challenges in that each one grants a cosmetic rewards. Of course, not all rewards are equal, but it’s always nice to get a little something for our trouble. As of July 5th, Epic has released eleven summer objectives.

In addition to those guides, we’ve also put together a humongous list of Fortbyte challenges. Each and every available Fortbyte can be found along with detailed guides for any applicable task.

With these guides, you’ll be ready for the season’s end with time to spare. Remember, Fortbyte unlock Styles and Pickaxes, so they are definitely worth the effort. We’ll see you in-game as we make sure to complete our challenges as well!


Fortnite Creative Mode could be getting a huge expansion

Fortnite Creative Mode could bring a massive update to truly simulate end-game scenarios, according to a recent leak.



Fortnite Creative Mode could bring a massive update to truly simulate end-game scenarios.

Creative Mode was one of the most innovative additions that Epic has made to Fortnite. You don’t even have to play the base game mode to enjoy Fortnite, anymore. You can play Search and Destroy, deathruns, Zone Wars, Trivia, boxfights, and a lot more.

Competitive Fortnite players have taken to Creative Mode the most. Zone Wars gives you a simulated end-game and boxfights let you practice the most important element of high-level competitive play.

Fortnite Creative beta

Over a year ago, way back in, Fortnite v12.10, files were added to the game that we assumed would bring a massive change to Creative Mode. According to the game files, Creative can now support up to 50 players.

A year after we first heard the news about an updated Creative Beta, we still have yet to see this in practice. Since it’s been so long, many players forgot that it was even on the horizon.

After the v15.50 update, however, data miners found some new files that relate to the Creative Mode expansion. According to them, Epic are testing a beta of Creative that should support 50 players.

Such a change would be a massive step for the game. You could truly play a mini-BR game with your friends if this change went through. YouTube creators and streamers could also manage private matches a lot easier, as there’s no chance of a code leak or an unwanted intruder.

The best part of this additional player count is the ability to truly simulate competitive end-game situations. Zone Wars is good practice for a lot of us, but not for those at the highest level.

Anyone who has ever watched a tournament knows what we’re talking about. The end-game in professional Fortnite matches routinely has 40+ players in the final few zones. It’s pure chaos, and a 50-player Zone Wars lobby will be able to capture this.

Of course, the expansion also opens the door to a ton of other possibilities including massive boxfight battles and more. Epic will be focusing on the Creative side of things for the future of Fortnite, and an increased player count is an excellent first step.

Fortnite leaked skins & cosmetics from v15.50 update



Fortnite v15.50 update leaked skins

Epic Games have rolled out their first update in a few weeks, with the arrival of Fortnite patch v15.50, and a number of skins and cosmetics have leaked as a result.

These weekly updates were never missed in times gone by, however Fortnite Chapter 2 has been a lot more inconsistent in that sense. Some weeks there is a huge update with map changes, new crossovers and challenges – while others will just make very minor bug changes.

You can always read about what to expect from the patch here on Fortnite Intel, and alongside those patch notes, let’s run through some of the game’s unreleased outfits.

Fortnite’s most recent crossover was with Street Fighter and Alien, but what’s next?

On March 2, once the downtime began, a number of leakers started looking into the game’s files to see what had changed. To their surprise, with just two weeks left in the season, not much had been tweaked in terms of content.

However, we do have some leaked skins and cosmetics to dig through – courtesy of Lucas7Yoshi and VastBlast.

Fortnite v15.40 leaked skins and cosmetics revealed

Epic Games have revealed the new Fortnite v15.40 update and leakers have already found a bunch of new skins.

Epic Games has dropped patch v15.40 in Fortnite and with it comes a boat load of leaked skins as well as cosmetics.

The latest update brought back one of the game’s older weapons, which had been vaulted for some time, and that’s the Flint Knock pistol.

As the pirate theme died long ago in Chapter 2, the weapon hasn’t been around for much of Chapter 2 – but now it’s back in the loot pool.

As usual, following an update, leakers have been hard at work looking around for any potential teasers for upcoming content. To that point, leaked skins and cosmetics have emerged.
