Blood Gulch Fortnite LTM

Fortnite X Halo is here, with Master Chief, a new cosmetic bundle, and a Blood Gulch Capture the Flag LTM. Here’s how to play the new game mode.

If you thought Fortnite Season 4 was crossover-heavy, then you haven’t seen anything yet. The first week of Season 5 has included a Mandalorian Battle Pass skin along with crossovers with God of War and Halo – and this is only the beginning.

Unlike God of War, Halo’s multiplayer focus lent itself to a Fortnite LTM – the Creative Mode recreation of the iconic Blood Gulch Capture the Flag.

There is matchmaking available for this mode, but it isn’t as intuitive as you might expect. At the time of writing, there’s no way to directly queue into this game from the lobby, leaving players wondering whether or not it’s working.

What’s more, even loading into Creative Mode might not make this LTM available. The Creative “Fill” Mode doesn’t appear to show Blood Gulch as a featured island. Xbox players can’t even queue into matchmaking from these portals, anyway – at least, for now.

Once you know what to do, finding Blood Gulch is simple. Follow these steps:

  • Load into a private Creative Mode
  • Walk up too the Blood Gulch featured island and begin matchmaking

Players on Xbox One – or anyone in a Creative Fill lobby – can search for a match this way:

  • Put in island code: 9677-6974-5646
  • Enter the island after it loads
  • Enter the matchmaking portal within the island.

As for the map itself, it’s a stunning recreation of one of the most iconic maps in the history of the Halo franchise.

In our short sample size, we didn’t find the game as competitive as we would’ve liked. Players on each team left before the end, and capturing the flag seemed impossible without proper teamwork.

Hop in and try it out for yourself! Your experience with the LTM could be vastly different than ours.

How to earn the free Fortnite Crew emote in Season 5

Epic Games are offering players who sign up for the Fortnite Crew membership a free, exclusive emote for a limited time.

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 challenge guide

The Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 challenges are here. Take a look at how to complete all of them in this challenge guide.

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!
