Launch fireworks found along the river bank – 14 Days of Summer challenge walkthrough

Published

on

14 Days of Summer has been packed with content from skins to unvaulted weaponry to new challenges with exclusive rewards. Today, players will need to launch 4th of July fireworks along the river bank.

We’ve been having a huge of fun with 14 Days of Summer to the extent that we’re sad that it’s only four days away from ending. It’s awhile since we’ve been so happy with a content event and the community looks to share our enthusiasm.

For July 4th’s 14 Days daily challenge, Epic charges players with launching some fireworks to celebrate Independence Day. It’s not specifically marked as a 4th of July challenge, but the gist of festive fun is definitely implied.

The day’s challenge does not require players to unlock any previous challenge rewards. Some other challenges, like the Neon Tropics Driftboard task, do require some prior completions.

Here’s how to complete this 14 Days challenge:

  1. Hop into any core mode or Team Rumble
  2. Look at the map above and land at the nearest Fireworks
  3. Walk up to the Firework stuck into the ground
  4. Interact with the Firework once in range
  5. Watch as it flies into the sky and explodes
  6. Head to next closest Firework on the map
  7. Repeat these steps until you have launched three Fireworks

We went into the game ourselves and captured a short clip of footage from launching a Firework. Epic Games has used the same asset several times in the past for a variety of challenges.

For your efforts, you’ll be getting a very special Harvesting Tool. If you are thinking only of completing a single 14 Days challenge, make this the one. The Low ‘N Slow “Pickaxe” is among the rare dual wielded material harvesting tools. These were introduced into the game at the launch of Season 9.

Previous 14 Days of Summer Challenges

We’ve all been there. There’s real life stuff piling up from every direction and Epic keeps releasing amazing new content! Sometimes, it’s simply impossible to get on every single for Fortnite. We’d love too, but priorities are important.

Well, busy bee, we’ve got you covered on anything you’ve missed in the past few days. Below, you’ll find a list of all 14 Days of Summer challenges along with hyperlinks to their specific guides.

The 14 Days of Summer event isn’t all that’s happening in Fortnite. The launch of the new season of Stranger Things also brings a new collaboration along with skins, Upside Down portals, and more.

It’s certainly exciting times in Fortnite and we’re eagerly looking forward to Season 10’s launch event. What do you think will happen to the map as a possible massive monster vs. mech fight looms? We predict mass scale destruction and a few deleted named locations.

Fortnite Item Shop leak reveals Aquaman Villain

Published

on

New leaks hint at Aquaman villain Black Manta coming to Fortnite’s Item Shop in Season 3.

Epic Games has introduced many new changes following the release of Fortnite’s long-awaited Season 3, with new weapons, a flooded map and even Aquaman being added as a character in the popular battle royale.

However, it seems as if there are even more characters from the DC universe on the way, after new leaked game files were found. According to Hypex, Aquaman’s Villain Black Manta will also be added to Fortnite in Season 3.

Unlike Aquaman’s skin, which will be available through the battle pass challenges, Hypex revealed that Black Manta’s skin and the ‘Black Manta Blades’ pickaxe will be added to the Item Shop.

The DC Villain is expected to arrive in Fortnite’s Item Shop on Thursday, June 16 at 8 AM PT / 11 AM ET / 4 PM BST/ 5 PM CEST.

While an early look at the new skin and blades has not yet been revealed, it will likely look quite similar to how the character was portrayed in the Aquaman movie.

With the upcoming release of this new character and rumors swirling about a potential Atlantis point-of-interest being added in Season 3, it is possible that Black Manta could play a role in some of the upcoming changes leading into the next season.

The Atlantis location is expected to arrive once the water level has decreased enough, and the final stage of the map has already been revealed by leakers.

Fortnite v13.20 Update patch notes

on

It’s a new week, and that means that there’s a fresh update for us all to enjoy, as the Fortnite v12.30 patch goes live on all platforms on Tuesday, June 30, introducing a new weapon and a major change to an existing item.

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 3 has been live for a few weeks, and while the first major update of the season made sweeping changes to the game, Epic haven’t sat on their hands, dropping the 13.10 update to add Firefly Jars, and a second patch on June 30.

The Flare Gun and Portable Upgrade Benches are the major inclusions in this week’s patch, and we’ve got everything you need to know about the new items.

Flare Gun

Epic love to include new weapons for us to try out, and the v13.20 Update is no exception, with the Flare Gun finally making it’s long-awaited debut in the game.

The weapon, which holds six cartridges and deals 60 damage on a direct hit, was first spotted in the game’s files all the way back in Chapter 1, but for one reason or another never made it to the full game. Finally, though, it’s arrived, and with its ability to start fires, it is the perfect way to burn through enemy structures and send them back to the pre-game lobby.

The Flare Gun is the latest weapon added to Fortnite.

Portable Upgrade Bench

The other major change is the to the Upgrade Bench, which can now be broken and carried around to be used whenever you need it.

Simply hit it with your harvesting tool and it will transform into floor loot, which you can pick up and place in your inventory.

The Upgrade Bench can now be broken.

Loserfruit Fortnite skin

The next cosmetic item in Fortnite’s Icon series, this time for streamer Loserfruit, has been leaked, with the release date all but confirmed for June 21.

Following on from Ninja’s skin release earlier in the year, Loserfruit, one of the most popular Australian streamers, has been waiting on her skin coming to the game for months now.

Its initial launch was pushed back due to ongoing protests around the world, but it looks like it’s finally getting a proper release.

On June 21, a handful of leakers got their hands on the encrypted files for the skin, and accessed them, showcasing a full, high-quality look at the skin we’ll soon be able to rock in-game.

Featuring a replica of Loserfruit’s hoody with rainbow-colored arms, the arm portions light up spectacularly, and there is also a backpack that mirrors her own real-life version.

Loserfruit skin release date and price

The skin is set to release on June 21, now confirmed by Epic Games. Reliable data miner iFireMonkey says that a source has confirmed this date for the entire bundle.

The bundle includes a fruity pickaxe too, as well as the Bounce Berry emote.

The skin will be available at 8pm ET. It will cost 1,500 V-Bucks for just the skin, or 2,000 for the whole bundle.

Loserfruit herself is actually already rocking the skin in-game on her stream, thanks to exclusive access before the rest of us, so you can see it in action here.

We’ll keep you updated when the skin bundle is available to purchase in the item shop.
