How to complete the “launch fireworks” challenge in Fortnite for Season 7 Week 4

Published

on

Fortnite has officially entered week 4 of Season 7, and the weekly challenges are now available to complete.

As usual, there are three free-tier challenges players can complete, and four for Battle Pass owners.

One of the challenges for the free tier tasks players to launch three fireworks across the Fortnite island.

Fireworks have been added to the game on December 27 for the weekly challenge, and a possible hint towards the rumored New Years Eve event.

There are five firework locations around the map, and we have circled them all for you with a map below:

Once players approach a firework, they have to interact with it in order to ignite the explosive.

After players complete the match they will complete the challenge once they interact with three fireworks and receive five Battle Stars.

Check out the video below from POGProductionz if you are having any trouble locating the fireworks:

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!

How to get the Shadow Midas Drum Gun in Fortnitemares

Want Midas’ Drum Gun this Forntitemares season? Here’s how to get the only mythic weapon in Fortnite.

Published

Fortnitemares Midas' drum gun

Fortnitemare’s 2020 is here, and Midas is back in action after the minor setback of being eaten by a shark. Our old friend might not be in the game for the rest of the season, but he’ll be a boss until the end of Fortnitemares – scheduled for November 2.

As you might expect, Midas is patrolling his old headquarters at The Agency, which is now a Shadow-controlled POI called “The Ruins.” Here, you’ll find a plethora of RPG-wielding Henchmen who are more than willing to go down with the ship. Make sure that you have plenty of materials before aggravating one of them.

On the roof of The Ruins, you can see the remnants of the séance that brought Midas back to life. There’s a circle of candles with Midas’ golden chair in the center of them – levitating off of the ground.

Now, let’s talk about Midas’ Drum Gun. It’s not exactly the same as it was the first time around. In fact, it would be more accurate to say that Midas is carrying Jules’ Drum Gun from Season 3. This is, of course, the nerfed version of the weapon after the Season 2 Drum Gun performed far too well.

Anyone who played Fortnite during Season 3 knows that the Drum Gun wasn’t worth carrying back then. This was a season that featured the normal SMG, P90, and Rapid-Fire SMG, making the Mythic Drum Gun an afterthought.

Now, however, we only have the Silenced SMG and Tactical SMG – both with slower fire rates than the current Drum Gun. When you combine the Drum Gun’s fire rate with its larger clip size and increased damage/range, it becomes the best spray weapon in Season 4. The Drum Gun is an interesting example of how a meta shift can impact a single weapon in Fortnite.

The method of finding the Drum Gun is the same as it was in the past two seasons. You need to land at The Ruins, fight off other players, find, Midas, burn down all of his health, and take his weapon. This time, however, you’ll need to contest with the dozens of players falling from the sky as Shadow zombies.

The Ruins has to be the most dangerous place on the map – and it probably will be for the duration of the Fortnitemares event. Is the Drum Gun worth the massive risk of landing here? That decision is yours to make.

Patch Notes

All major Fortnitemares: Midas’ Revenge map changes

Take a look at all of the new locations in the Fortnite v14.40 Fortnitemares update.

Published

on

Fortnite v14.40 brought Fornitemares: Midas’ Revenge into the game. Midas has returned to his old stomping grounds with his Drum Gun and some RPG-wielding Henchmen to back him up.

The Fortnite map underwent several changes when the update launched – potentially the most changes since the start of the season. Ahead, we cover all of the new locations you can visit now that Fortnitemares 2020 is live.

The Ruins

The Ruins was the biggest change that came with the Fortnitemares update. At the same time, the changes seem a big familiar.

The location is now shrouded in shadows as Shadow Midas roams the hallway. This has now become the most dangerous location on the map. When you combine the undead Midas, Henchmen carrying Rocket Launchers, a massive number of players, and the new Shadow Zombies – it’s going to be tough to make it out of The Ruins alive.

Witchshacks

Witchshacks have popped-up all across the Fortnite map. These small huts aren’t too much to write home about, but they do bring the Halloween theme to more portions of the island.

The biggest reason to visit the Witchshacks has to be the new Broomsticks that you can find, there. The Broomsticks are kept inside of the barrels at these locations. You can grab one by breaking or searching a barrel – just like Fishing Rods.

The Broomsticks work exactly like Silver Surfer’s Surfboard. They propel you off of the ground and into the air, allowing you to glide as far as you choose. You can also cancel them mid-flight, just like the aforementioned Surfboard.

New Rift locations

There were a few small map changes in v14.40. One category of change is an expansion of the Rift Zones. Now, you can find Rifts surrounding some of the major POIs like Misty Meadows.

We’re still finding all of the new Rifts across the map, but they offer an additional form of mobility – always welcome when the storm is closing in.

These were all of the major changes in the Fortnitemares update, with small details still being uncovered. For instance, eagle-eyed players can find the Ghostbusters van and whack it for a cool Easter Egg.

The update is set to remain active until November 2, so we have several weeks left to enjoy the Halloween-themed Fortnite. Let us know what you think about all of these changes on Twitter, @FortniteINEL.
