How to get your Creative Island featured in Fortnite this winter

Winter is coming to Fortnite Creative Mode, giving players a chance to have their winter-themed map featured in the Hub.

Fortnite Creative Mode has been one of the under-the-radar drivers behind Fortnite’s success. It allows players to continuously enjoy the game – even if they don’t like what’s going on on the base island.

Creative Mode has gotten us through some dark times in Fortnite. It was this writer’s primary mode of play during the Season X debacle, and even served as a refuge during the zombie apocalypses that was Fortnitemares 2020.

The Creative community continues to offer engaging and interesting game modes for the player base to explore – whether it’s as simple as a Box Fight/FFA map or an intricately designed maze that requires patients and an attention to detail.

This winter, Epic are bringing back a fan-favorite Creative competition that allows players like you to see their island creations featured in the Creative Hub and matchmaking portals.

The promotion is titled #FrostyFortnite and allows creators a chance to have their winter-themed Creative island featured for several days or even weeks.

Some of the winners from last winter include snowball fight maps, a snowy free-for-all, some wintery box fighting, and many more.

Submissions for this competition close on December 15, so make sure to create your island and fill out the official form here. You’ll need to choose the “Seasonal Event” tag when submitting your island to be considered for this promotion.

Even players who don’t make the cut can share their creations on social media using the hashtag #FrostyFortnite. Good luck!

How to earn the free Fortnite Crew emote in Season 5

Monthly Crew Pack leaked image

Epic Games is offering players a free emote to go with their Fortnite Crew membership in Fortnite Season 5.

The Fortnite Crew membership is an interesting idea. Players can sign up for the system for $11.99 per month. In return, they receive the Battle Pass, an exclusive cosmetic set, and 1,000 V-Bucks to use as they please.

January 2021 was the second month of the Crew system, and it wasn’t without its speed bumps. Some players logged in on January 1 to see that their Green Arrow skin pack was nowhere to be found.

Even more players had to wait over 2 weeks to receive their V-Bucks for the month. The system is still new, but it’s clear that Epic have some polishing to do.

As a way to throw Fortnite Crew members a bone, Epic are offering a free “Members Only” emote to anyone who signs up for the Crew pack.

You need to sign up for a Fortnite Crew membership and log into Fortnite before February 15. This timing means that non-members can wait and see what the February cosmetic pack holds before committing.

The Crew membership, when it’s working, is a good deal for dedicated Fortnite players who want to get the most bang for their buck. An exclusive skin, pickaxe, back bling, and 1,000 V-Bucks is well worth the $11.99 price tag.

We’ll let you know when we learn more about the February Fortnite Crew pack. Until then, enjoy Season 5.

XP Coins have returned to Fortnite Season 5. Here’s where to find all of them as of Season 5 Week 7.

Fortnite Season 5 is offering players a plethora of ways to earn XP and rank up through the Battle Pass. The most recently-added XP-gathering method is through the XP Coins.

Most players will remember XP Coins from the past few seasons. They seemed to be everywhere back then, but they were removed at the start of the season.

Ahead, we’ll give you a map of all the XP coin locations. We’ll make sure to update you as more XP Coins are added to the map.

Fortnite XP Coin locations

XP coins are scattered all across the map. You can find them from Catty Corner to Stealthy Stronghold. Here’s a map of all of the available XP Coins, so far.

We’ll keep this post updated as more XP coins become available. You’ll need to reach level 250 to unlock all of the enlightened skins in Season 5, so finding these will be well worth your time.

Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 is here. Take a look at all of the challenges and how to complete them.

Fortnite Season 5 is chugging along, but there’s still about two months left. The holiday break extended the latest season, so there’s still plenty of time to make your way through the Battle Pass.

The Week 7 challenges are relatively straightforward, with most of them able to be completed without too much effort.

A couple of these challenges will have you searching the same area in Slurpy Swamp, so a favorable bus path in Team Rumble will allow you to complete them in one shot. Here’s what you’ll need to do.

Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 challenges

The good news in the Week 7 challenges is that all of them can be completed in Team Rumble. We have a separate article detailing the locations of Books in Holly Hedges and Sweaty Sands. You can find that here.

The Legendary challenge requires players to deal damage to opponents in Vehicles. This one is going to be a headache, as there’s no way to force another player to be inside of a car or boat when you shoot them.

Hopefully, you can get into a game of Team Rumble with like-minded enemies – sitting in Motorboats and trading shots with you. If not, it’s going to take some serious gaming to finish this one. Good luck!
