How to complete the Tony Stark Awakening Fortnite challenges

Unlock the Iron Man suit by completing these Tony Stark Awakening Challenges in Fortnite.

Published

on

Fortnite players are undoubtedly familiar with the Awakening Fortnite challenges that Epic introduced to Season 4. These challenges reward players with some unique styles and skin-specific cosmetics. For Tony Stark, the reward is his Iron Man suit.

A lot of players could live without unlocking the Doctor Doom emote or additional Thor style, but most people are going to want the Iron Man suit. Here’s what you’ll need to do to unlock it.

Stage 1: Reach 88 on the speedometer in a Whiplash as Tony Stark

Tony Stark loves to go fast, as shown by his fleet of customized Whiplashes in the Stark Industries garage.

This is the most straightforward challenge of the bunch. All you need to do is find a whiplash and a straightaway. As we mentioned, there are plenty of them in the Stark Industries garage, but a lot of players usually land here.

We recommend landing somewhere like Retail Row or Sweaty Sands. There’s likely to be an open Whiplash, fewer players, and enough real estate to hit 88 mph.

Stage 1: Use an Upgrade Bench as Tony Stark

This stage is as easy as loading into a game of Team Rumble, grabbing whatever item you see, and hitting the nearest Upgrade Bench. There are Upgrade Benches scattered all over the map and you begin a Team Rumble match with enough materials to upgrade a Rare weapon to Epic.

Salty Springs might be the most common location for this challenge since it’s in the middle of the map and is almost always accessible in Team Rumble. The Upgrade Bench is located in the garage of the brick building.

Stage 2: Emote as Tony Stark in the Stark Workshop

We highly recommend Team Rumble for this stage of the challenge unless you don’t mind dying after you emote. Team Rumble is far less crowded and doesn’t spawn the Stark Robots, so it’s much safer.

The workshop is at the lowest level of the main building. If you’re already familiar with Stark Industries, then you’ll recognize it as the location that houses Stark’s Iron Man suits. You’ll need to emote in the center of the platform, which you can see in the video, below.

Unlocking the Tony Stark Awakening challenges is pretty important, considering it’s the only way to grab the Iron Man suit. He’s a central figure of Marvel and of the season, so you won’t want to miss this one.

Fortnite reveals first look at Ant-Man skin coming soon

Fortnite Ant-Man skin teaser

Epic Games have revealed the first look at what’s expected to be an upcoming Ant-Man skin in Fortnite, but you’ll have to be looking closely at their teasers to spot him.

The Fortnite developers are continuing their relentless spree of crossovers, especially with superhero skins, and it looks like we’re getting another one very soon.

This time around, it’s the tiny Ant-Man. On March 6, Epic Games tweeted an image Domino, Cable, and Psylocke, but look closer, and you’ll spot someone else there too.

Sitting on Cable’s arm, we can make out the tiny hero.

And that’s not the only teaser for Ant-Man. In a second image, we can see him standing on the tip of the sword.

We’d assume that Ant-Man will actually be the regular character model size when the skin is playable in game – or else it would be the most powerful skin around (although not sure how he’d hold any weapons).

Unfortunately, we can’t make out the finer details of the skin as the images show him so small.

When is the Fortnite Ant-Man skin release date?

We don’t have the exact release date for the Ant-Man skin yet unfortunately. But, just based on previous teasers, we wouldn’t expect the wait to be too long.

Usually after a new portal is added in-game, and teasers start dropping, it’s only a matter of days before we can get our hands of the skin.

How to disable pre-edits in Fortnite

After over a year of fan requests, Epic have added a ‘disable pre-edit’ option to Fortnite. Here’s where you can find it.

Published

In the v15.20 update, Epic Games added a much-requested setting to Fortnite: ‘disable pre-edits.’ Here’s how it works and how to select it.

Finally, after years of Reddit threads, Twitter posts, and pro players begging, Epic added a ‘disable pre-edit’ setting to Fortnite.

Here’s everything you need to know about the new setting, including how it works and where to find it.

What does ‘pre-editing’ mean?

Pre-editing refers to the ability to edit a structure before placing it. The most popular use of pre-edits throughout Fortnite history was a cone/ramp edit when controller players had to use Combat Pro.

Now, however, very few players use pre-edits. Instead, pre-edits offer an obstacle, as they’re almost always completed by mistake. Of course, there are still some niche applications for pre-edits, but most players wanted Epic to add an option to disable these edits.

How to disable pre-edits

You can find the new option under the settings tab (cog wheel) in the start menu. Scroll down to the “Building” section, and you’ll see four options. One of them is the new “Disable Pre-Edit Option.”

If you turn this off, you’ll no longer be able to edit structures before placing them – good news for the bulk of the Fortnite community.

If may have taken Epic years to add this option, but it’s finally here. Next stop, an FoV slider!

How to use pre-editing to your advantage in Fortnite

Don’t turn off pre-edits so fast! Learn how to make pre-edits work for you in Fortnite with these new competitive strategies.

Learn how to make pre-edits work for you in Fortnite with these competitive strategies.

Pre-edits in Fortnite can be maddening when you’re in the middle of a fight. More often than not, the pre-edits will work against you as you accidentally edit a hole in your floor or a window in your wall. Before you know it, you’re taking fall damage or getting shot because you hit the wrong button while battling someone.

Epic recently added a lon-requested setting to Fortnite, giving players the ability to toggle pre-edits on and off. Now, with a simple setting change, you’ll never need to worry about pre-edits again.

This doesn’t mean that pre-edits are entirely useless. In the patch before the setting change was released, pro player Maken used them expertly to outplay his opponent.

Useful pre-edits have also been posted to the r/FortniteCompetitive subreddit in the past. These pre-edits focus on cones, and give players the ability to fake-out opponents and even place their structures through turbo-builds.

The first strategy involves subverting the expectations of your opponent. Most skilled players anticipate edits, but using a pre-edited cone can get you a free shot.

As you can see, all you have to do is edit the wall, place your triangle cone, resent the cone edit, and shoot your opponent. There’s hardly anything they can do to prevent this free shot – especially since they aren’t going to see it coming.

The above clip from u/DemianNieuwenhuis has a very niche application. After all, using a regular cone is going to be far more useful in most situations. The only time your pre-edited cone will work is when someone is standing outside of your box.

This next clip is more of an exploit than anything. It also requires you to pre-edit your cone; this time in a V shape. You can exploit the new Turbo Building system and place the V-cone under your opponent’s ceiling after breaking their cone.

Again – like the other clip – this strategy will only be useful in certain situations. You won’t be able to cone-block opponents or even protect yourself from above if you run around with your cones all jacked up like this.

Still, these strategies are worth mentioning – especially if you find yourself in a 1v1. You can surprise your opponent with both of them, and steal some shots without taking damage.
