Pro athletes and streamers will team up again for the Fortnite Twitch Rivals Supergames. Here’s how to watch.

On April 13, Twitch and Fortnite jointly announced the Twitch Rivals Supergames featuring Fortnite. The tournament will include big names from both Twitch and professional sports.

We’re in the midst of a pandemic and quarantine, which means all live sports have been put on hold. In the meantime, pro athletes like Blake Nell, Trevor May, Chase Elliot, and Mike Evans will take to Fortnite to compete.

The pro athletes will be joined by streamers like Nick Eh 30, NickMercs, Bugha, Aydan, and more. This will be a duos competition and looks to be similar to the Pro-Am and Streamer Bowl.

Format

The competition begins with over 200 athletes competing for draft positioning. The Open Round concluded yesterday, April 13, and saw Skylar Arias and Nick Marchese take first place.

The Supergames appear to be taking the same format as the Streamer Bowl. Pro athletes compete with the goal of catching the eye of a streamer. On April 20, the competing streamers will draft their duo partners from the top-50 pro athlete duos.

The teams will then compete in a private match for their share of $1 million in charity money.

How to watch

You can tune in on April 16, 20, and 22 to watch the games. The Open Round has already happened, but you can take a look at the results here.

The next stage will be the Semifinals, where the top-50 duos will compete to be drafted by one of the streamers. The draft will be held on April 20 and the Finals will be on April 22.

If this is anything like the Streamer bowl, then you can expect another entertaining event. The Streamer Bowl was arguably the most engaging Fortnite competition in recent memory.

Of course, you can watch all of this go down on the Twitch Rivals Twitch channel, or from the PoV of any streamer competing in the event.

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 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!
