Mysterious and “massive” Fortnite Jerky event in the works

Data miners have found a mysterious and “massive” Fortnite event called ‘Jerky’ in the game files.

It’s been a while since a good, wholesome, Fortnite event. The collaboration with Star Wars was undoubtedly cool, but it was a Star Wars event more than it was a Fortnite event.

The last, true, Fortnite event was last October when the game shut down for three days. No game has ever done something like this, before. It was so massive that it made mainstream news.

Following the v12.40 update, Fortnite data miner @Lucas7Yoshi has reportedly found something interesting in the game files – something that points to the next Fortnite event. It’s called ‘Jerky,’ and it’s the same playlist that was used for Marshmello’s concert and The End event.

So far, Lucas7Yoshi is the only data miner to report these findings. Nothing is certain, as he admits. This wouldn’t be the first time that Lucas7Yoshi had something before the other Fortnite leakers, though. He was also one of the only data miners to stand by the leaked Chapter 2 map, which eventually came to the game.

There were a few other elements related to this future event in the game files. One of them was an ID for a ‘Hurricane’ skin that could relate to the Jerky event we’re seeing.

This is all we know at the time. The event is likely weeks – if not a month – away from coming to Fortnite. It would explain a lot, however, including the mysterious hatches around The Agency and the rumored Doomsday Device on which Midas is working.

We’ll let you know when more information comes to light. The good news is that there’s most likely a season-ending event that will close-out Chapter 2 Season 2. The plotline of Chapter 2 is loose, but it appears to be tightening up.

Will Midas blow up the island and send us back to Chapter 1? Will a prisoner break out of the new Shark? Will The Visitor or another member of The Seven make an appearance? Only time will tell.

Ariana Grande has returned to Fortnite! Here is how you can get the new Spacefarer Ariana Grande skin in Fortnite.

Nickelodeon child star turned international superstar, Ariana Grande has been immortalized in Fortnite. Along with a one-of-a-kind digital experience, Fortnite released the official Ariana Grande skin.

Other musical artists such as Travis Scott, Marshmello, and Major Lazer have also appeared in Fortnite. Epic Games also hosted concerts for Scott and Marshmello that rivaled Grande’s.

However, neither Scott nor Marshmello have had skins added to the game later. As for Ariana Grande, Fortnite is adding the new Spacefarer skin which depicts Grande as an intergalactic bounty hunter.

Unlocking Spacefarer Ariana Grande in Fortnite

Unfortunately, there isn’t any way to unlock Spacefarer Ariana Grande in Fortnite without the use of V-Bucks. That’s right, players have to purchase the Spacefarer Ariana Grande skin from the Item Shop.

Spacefarer Ariana Grande, as well as the original Ariana Grande set, will be available on October 21 at 8 PM EST. It will likely cost 2,000 V-Bucks like the last Ariana Grande skin. However, we will update the price when it is officially released.

The Spacefarer Ariana Grande skin comes with a built-in emote that drastically changes the look of the skin. There’s also an alternate style that players can unlock via challenges.

The future of Fortnite Mobile on Apple devices won’t be decided for 2-3 months

The Epic Games vs Apple trial has ended, but Fortnite Mobile’s return and the trial verdict are still months away.

Fortnite apple trial verdict

Following the Epic Games vs Apple trial, the judge announced that a verdict won’t be issued for up to three months. This means that Fortnite Mobile won’t return to Apple devices for at least two months.

Fortnite mobile was removed from the App Store on August 13, 2020, following a breach of contract with Apple. Epic Games announced a permanent discount on V-Bucks that mobile players could only have if they used a direct payment method. This undermined the 30% cut Apple takes from all in-app transactions which is against its Terms of Service.

Following Epic’s announcement, Apple removed Fortnite from the App Store and prohibited future updates. This was then met with a lawsuit from Epic Games claiming that Apple’s digital storefront policies are anti-competitive. The trial officially started on May 3, and has since concluded.

Fortnite Mobile’s return is months away

While the three-week trial officially concluded on May 21, we still don’t know who won the trial. At the end of the evidence portion of the trial, the judge announced she would issue a verdict before August 13. However, she also stated that she wouldn’t have a verdict before June 7.

Epic’s platform during the trial was that Apple’s 30% cut of all transactions promotes anti-competitive behavior. Epic Games made it clear before and during the trial that this suit was not for monetary gain, but was to fight for fair policies for all app developers. Towards the end of the trial, it seemed as if the judge was starting to sympathize with Epic’s position.

According to Twitter user imgoldenyt, the judge was intensely criticizing Apple’s CEO Tim Cook on the lack of competition on iOS devices. The judge at one point stated, “It doesn’t feel like you feel competition, and a reason to change the matter in which you act.”

Regardless of the judge’s assumed position, we still won’t know the result of the trial for a couple of months. This also means that Fortnite Mobile won’t return to the App Store within this time frame. Even if Fortnite isn’t declared the winner, Apple has extended an invitation to have Fortnite back on the App Store if it abides by store policies.

How to collect books from Holly Hedges and Sweaty Sands

The Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 challenges are available. Here’s how to collect books from Holly Hedges and Sweaty Sands.

The Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 challenges are live. Here’s a guide to the most difficult challenge: collecting books from Holly Hedges and Sweaty Sands.

Epic have been taking it easy on us this season, with only a handful of weekly challenges requiring us to search the map for specific items.

Unfortunately, the Season 5 Week 7 challenges include one of these, requiring you to collect books in Sweaty Sands and Holly Hedges. We did the leg work for you so you can get back to grabbing Victory Royales.

Fortnite Holly Hedges & Sweaty Sands book locations

There are three books in each location, but you only need to find five of them. Since Sweaty and Holly are near one another, you can easily complete this challenge in a single game of Team Rumble.

The book locations are as follows:

Holly Hedges

  • Ground floor of the yellow house in the northwest
  • The tall building in the southeast corner
  • The building in the northeast corner (dog house)

Sweaty Sands

  • The building next to the RV park
  • The bookshelf inside the tall apartment building
  • The building in the southeast corner
Fortnite book locations

Again, Team Rumble is the best way to complete this challenge if you want to get it out of the way. Of course, you can always land at these locations in a normal match, but that’s only making it more difficult for yourself.

You can take a look at the full list of Season 5 Week 7 challenges here. We’ll be back next week with another guide to all of the weekly challenges.
