How to gain 25k XP from this Fortnite Season 3 secret challenge

This Fortnite Season 3 secret challenge involves helping the coral people rebuild.

Published

As many of you are aware, Fortnite Season 2 brought us a sub-plot that involved the Bears and Gnomes of the island. By the end of the season, we had brokered a truce between these two groups that extended into Season 3.

This plotline included a handful of secret challenges – challenges that weren’t listed on the Battle Pass tab but rewarded players with XP. It looks like Epic is doing something similar with Season 3 – this time, revolving around some of the small, dancing coral people that lived on the islands outside of Sweaty Sands.

These islands were hit by the massive flood, and our little dancing friends were displaced. Well, a new island has shown up on the top of the map, next to the lighthouse. This area may have been added during the v13.20 update, although we’re not 100% sure about that. All we know is that it isn’t included on the original Fortnite Season 3 map.

You can find some of the survivors on this island, attempting to rebuild their home. Visiting them with 100 wood gets them to the next stage of development and rewards yourself with 25,000 XP. There isn’t any loot on this island, so keep that in mind. You should probably hit the lighthouse area before moving in.

The achievement for this quest tells you that these folks have entered the wood stage, which means that there’s probably more to come. We haven’t seen the last of these little guys, as they’ll probably continue to expand – with our help – over the course of the season.

How to make a Stark Robot dance in Fortnite

Find out how to make a Stark Robot dance for your Fortnite Season 4 week 5 challenges.

Published

Fortnite Season 4 Week 5 is here, bringing us some new challenges to complete for the week. XP is flowing this season, but don’t get complacent. Unlocking the Holographic Wolverine style will require you to reach level 220 – a tall order for even the most dedicated Fortnite player.

This week, there are a few challenges that require a bit of existing Fortnite knowledge to complete. One of these is “Make a Stark Robot dance.” Don’t worry, though, this is easy to check off your list once you know what to do.

The first step in this process is finding a Stark Robot. Yes, you can find plenty of them at Stark Industries, but that’s probably not a good place to do this challenge. It’s one of the most populated places on the map and Stark Robots don’t spawn in Team Rumble.

Instead, we suggest heading for one of the Quinjet landing sites on the map. You can usually find one that’s devoid of players, but be careful that the Stark Robots don’t take you out on their own.

The best strategy is to land somewhere near the Quinjet, get a couple of guns, and head to the landing site from there. That way, you’ll be able to defend yourself from those pesky robots.

Now that you’ve found an untouched landing site, all you need to do is down one of the stark robots and hack them. You can do this by going up to them and pressing F on keyboard, Square on PS4, or X on Xbox. We recommend clearing out the other robots before trying to hack one.

Once you’ve hacked a robot and are safe, the final stage is to dance. The robot will dance with you and you’ll complete the challenge. You don’t even have to wait for the robot if you don’t want. The challenge will complete itself as soon as you dance with a hacked robot by your side.

Hacking robots in Fortnite is sneakily an awesome tactic. They fight by your side, distract your opponents, and can sometimes even do enough damage to get a kill or two. Good luck!

Glitches

How to enter the Stark Industries Vault without a keycard

Fortnite players have found an exploit that allows them to enter the Stark Industries vault without a keycard.

Published

The first update of Fortnite Season 4 included a massive overhaul of almost the entire northeast portion of the map. Stark Industries has now become one of the most popular places to land, with nearly a quarter of the lobby chasing Iron Man at the beginning of each match.

It’s easy to understand why this location is so popular. Stark Industries offers a ton of loot, a chance for an early battle, the only place to obtain high-level Stark Rifles, the Iron Man hero abilities, and a vault.

We’re focusing on the vault, for this article. It’s one of only two closed vaults on the map, but that doesn’t mean that you need a keycard to enter. More than a few players have eliminated Iron Man and hit the vault, only to find a squad of players already inside.

The reason for this is a video made by popular YouTuber and glitch exposer Glitch King. He offered a video tutorial on how to enter the Stark Industries vault without a keycard.

A glitch like this one has been possible in every season since vaults first came to Fortnite. The good thing was that most of these glitches took so long to complete that they were nearly impossible to pull off in a real game. You’d have to build walls and cones, get a boat, and spam buttons to enter the vault.

This one, however, is troublingly easy. All you need to do is hit the back of the vault at the proper angle with one of the many cars that spawn in the Stark Industries parking lot. Simply land, grab a car, drive it under the stairs and hop into the vault.

There’s a small catch to this glitch, however. One of the requirements is a bad PC – or, at least, a friend with a bad PC. Part of the glitch requires the driver’s PC to fail to render the walls of the vault, pushing you inside.

Admittedly, Glitch King makes the exploit look easier than it is. You probably won’t get it on your first try, but there’s nothing stopping players from practicing this glitch in Battle Lab. Once you find the right angle, you’ll get in every time.

Of course, you’ll be stuck inside the vault until someone else opens it, but that isn’t much of a problem. The Stark Industries vault almost never goes unopened, so chances are you’ll be able to loot the vault and kill whoever opens the door for you.

This is a pretty broken exploit, so we hope Epic address it in a coming update. The longer it’s in the game, the more players will try it. For now, all we can advise is to be careful when opening the Stark Industries vault.

New Fortnite Battle Bus “Upgrade” leaked

Tony Stark is improving the Fortnite Battle Bus. Take a look at the leaked first version of the upgrade.

Published

on

Fortnite Season 4 is finally giving players a taste of what it was like to play the game in Chapter 1. The updates aren’t coming at the same rapid clip as they were during the last chapter, but they’re steadily changing the game by adding new content every couple of weeks.

Yesterday’s update was a perfect example of this. It wasn’t as big as v14.10, which brought Stark Industries to the game, but it made significant changes in key areas of the map. The update also released Wolverine, who is the toughest boss that Fortnite has ever seen.

The map is progressively changing over the course of the season and we haven’t seen the last alteration. In fact, the map isn’t the only part of Fortnite that’s set for an overhaul as the season progresses.

Players who have had a chance to breathe in Stark Industries have noticed that Tony Stark appears to be making alterations to the Battle Bus. You can find one of the busses in his garage. It seems as though Stark wasn’t content with the plain old bus we’ve had since the early days of Fortnite.

Thanks to data miners, we already know how the upgraded Battle Bus will look when Tony Stark is finished with his first round of alterations.

There isn’t too much of a difference with this first stage, but we don’t expect Stark to stop there. By the end of the season, there’s a strong chance that the Battle Bus has its very own Iron Bus suit.

As you can see, the sound of the bus is also changing. It appears as though Stark is focusing on the performance of the bus before moving onto the cosmetics.

One interesting question that we have is: will this affect the speed of the bus? We assume that a more powerful engine would allow the bus to hit higher speeds. The speed probably won’t change due to game mechanics, but anything’s possible!

We’ll keep you posted when we learn more about Tony Stark’s plan for the Battle Bus. We can expect to see this version of the bus come to Fortnite within the next two weeks.
