Take a look at the Grumpy Greens location, Mowdown location, and Risky Reels location for your Fortnite Season 2 Week 4 challenges.

Most of the Fortnite Season 2 Week 4 TNTina challenges are as straightforward as can be. The only challenge that requires a guide is the one that asks you to visit Grumpy Greens, Mowdown, and Risky Reels.

Risky Reels is a well-known location, but most players aren’t paying attention to small areas like Mowdown and Grumpy Greens. Luckily for you, we have you covered with all of their locations.

As you can see, all three landmarks are close to one another. You could easily complete this challenge in a single Team Rumble match, and may even be able to do it in a normal game.

Let’s take a closer look at each location to make sure you don’t miss some of the local landmarks surrounding them.

Risky Reels location

Risky Reels

We’ll start with Risky Reels, since this is the most well-known location on the Fortnite map. Epic brought this fan-favorite over from Chapter 1 and plopped it right in the middle of the map.

Risky is sneakily one of the best places to land in Fortnite Season 2. It allows you to loot-up in peace before storming The Agency. You can usually clean-up the surviving team without getting gunned-down by Midas and his cronies.

Grumpy Greens location

Grumpy Greens is a small patch of hedges to the East of Pleasant Park. The name of the location gives it away, as you’ll see a frowny-face made up of some shrubs.

There’s one floor loot spawn, here. Don’t bank on landing at Grumpy Greens and attacking Pleasant Park with your stack of Bandages.

Mowdown location

The Mowdown is located just to the north of The Orchard. From the air, you’ll see a circular patch of dirt. Fly towards that if you want to land at the Mowdown.

There’s only one chest that spawns here, so be careful if you want to push The Orchard when you’re done. You might be able to secure enough loot, but it’s a 50/50 chance.

So, there you have it. All of the locations that you need to complete your Fortnite Week 4 challenges. Which alliance will you be choosing for TNTina? Shadow or Ghost? Let us know in the comments.

How to unlock the Armored Kratos style in Fortnite

Kratos from God of War has made it to Fortnite. Find out how to unlock the Armored Kratos style for free in Season 5.

Kratos has landed on the Fortnite island, but his single style isn’t his only form. Here’s how to unlock his Armored outfit.

After a full season worth of crossovers, Epic slowed things down with Fortnite Season 5. The new season was released with only one crossover character in the roster: The Mandalorian.

It only took a couple of days for Epic to add to their Season 5 crossover roster. On December 3, Kratos from God of War came to the Item Shop. This preceeds the rumored addition of Master Chief from the Halo franchise.

Although God of War is a Playstation exclusive video game, players on all platforms could grab Kratos and his skin pack. You know that Sony had to do something for their console owners, however.

PlayStation players who play a single game with the Kratos skin will unlock the Armored Kratos style for their skin – it’s as simple as that.

Unfortunately, Android, Xbox, PC, and Nintendo Switch players will need to stick to the standard Kratos outfit – unless you have a PS5 lying around.

If you don’t have a PlayStation on-hand, the only option you have is to ask a trustworthy friend to log onto your account and play a game for you. Giving out your account information is risky and usually a bad idea, so proceed with caution.

Hopefully for Xbox players, Microsoft will have the same deal with Epic Games when Master Chief comes to the Item Shop. He’s one of the most iconic characters in all of gaming and will probably be a popular pick on all platforms.

All Fortnite Season 5 Exotic Weapon locations

Fortnite Season 5 brought Exotic weapons to the game to replace Mythics. Here’s where to find all of them.

Fortnite Season 5 introduced Exotic weapons to the game instead of Mythics, giving more players access to them. Here’s where you can find them.

There’s no shortage of new mechanics in Fortnite Season 5, with the addition of NPCs, quests, and a whole lot more.

Mythics have returned to the game in Season 5 but in a limited capacity. The only classic Mythic items in Fortnite Season 5 include The Mandalorian’s Jetpack and sniper rifle, both available from the bounty hunter himself.

The other items in the game are classified as Exotics. There’s only one of each Mythic item in each game, but can be multiple Exotic weapons.

You can purchase these Exotic weapons from specific NPCs across the map. Of course, this means you’ll need to save up your Gold Bars to afford them.

Twitter user @MikeDulaimi created an easy-to-follow guide on how to locate all of the Exotic weapons in Fortnite. You can purchase them from NPCs in the areas surrounding Hunter’s Haven, The Zero Point, Dirty Docks, Craggy Cliffs, and Stealthy Stronghold

Mythic items were relatively controversial for the past few seasons of Fortnite – especially in competitive modes. Doom’s Mystical Bomb and Kit’s Shockwave Launcher dominated tournament play for the past two seasons, and the competitive community largely called for them to be removed.

We’re curious to see how this community treats Exotic weapons. They’re more widely available and aren’t as powerful as Mythics, making them more balanced than the latter – that is, until a player eliminates the NPC selling them.

Glitches

Game-breaking bug causing invisibility/God Mode in Fortnite Season 5

Players have already found a game-breaking glitch in Fortnite Season 5, causing players to go invisible and become invulnerable to damage.

Fortnite Season 5 wasn’t released bug-free. In fact, there’s already a game-breaking bug causing players to become invisible and invulnerable to damage.

Every major update in almost every video game brings a few bugs with it, and Fortnite is no different. This is almost always the case when video games add new mechanics, as Fortnite did with Season 5.

This game-breaking bug has to do with the new sand mechanic. For those who don’t know, the center of the Fortnite island is now covered with quicksand. If you stand on the sand for too long, it sinks you in.

The quicksand isn’t a bad thing. It can actually benefit players, offering a hiding spot and increased movement speed, as seen below.

However, on the flip side, it’s also causing a bug that makes players invisible and invulnerable to damage. This isn’t the first invisibility glitch we’ve seen in Fortnite. Older patches had the same issue with Port-A-Potties.

This glitch appears to be more prevalent than the previous ones, however. We’ve seen several reports of this happening to players – sometimes even multiple times in a single play session. The Port-A-Potty glitch required more intention on the part of the players involved.

Hopefully, Epic get this sorted sooner rather than later. We wouldn’t be surprised to see the sand-sinking mechanic disabled ahead of the next update if Epic can’t push a hotfix to address the problem.

We don’t know whether this glitch is intentional on the part of infracting players or if there’s a method to trigger the issue. We’ll let you know when we find out more about the problem.
