New Fortnite strategy offers a counter to getting your wall taken

Here’s a new strategy that allows you to counter an opponent who takes your wall in Fortnite.

Published

Fortnite is a game that will never stop evolving, which is part of the reason it’s so popular. At the highest levels, there will always be a new method or strategy to practice and perfect.

One of the biggest issues with competitive Fortnite is related to ping. This isn’t a game where having high ping means that you’ll get shot around a corner once in a while. In Fortnite, going against a skilled player with 0 ping means they can virtually have their way with you.

Stealing walls is a ping-dependent strategy in Fortnite that has taken a tiny bit of a backseat in Season 2. With the lack of traps, a player is just as likely to jump through your wall as they are to steal it. Still, when a player has little information on their opponent, they’ll likely go for the safe wall theft into an edit.

There are only a few things that you can do if you’re in a box and an opponent takes your wall. The most popular counter is to build a cone or ramp and edit out of the structure to save yourself.

One Fortnite player discovered a new way to counter-play an opponent taking your wall. As ProdigyGaming states in his video, this is the first time that he’s seen someone use this move. We haven’t seen it either and thought we’d share it with you.

Instead of running away when someone takes your wall, ProdigyGaming has a strategy that allows you to play offense. All you have to do is place a cone and edit it in the so-called “Dorito” pattern. This allows you to take a shot at an opponent while remaining impossible to hit from their angle.

As is the case with anything, there will be players who say that they knew about this method. We haven’t seen it, however, and that means that a large percentage of you haven’t, either.

You’re going to need to practice this one. The most difficult part seems to be making sure that you have some room above you by editing or breaking your ceiling. This has the potential to be a popular strategy in the long-lasting boxfighting meta of Fortnite, though, so it’s worth learning.

How to unlock Wolverine in Fortnite Season 4 (all challenges)

Want to unlock Wolverine in Fortnite? Here’s how.

Published

on

Finally, after weeks of anticipation, Wolverine is an unlockable skin in Fortnite. We still have a couple of variants to unlock, but we can start with the base style today, October 1.

Of course, you’ll have to complete all of the available challenges for Wolverine to unlock his skin. Thankfully for you, we’ve already done all of the heavy lifting for you. Here’s a guide to each of the five weekly challenges that you need for the Fortnite Wolverine skin.

Investigate Mysterious Claw Marks

The first week of Fortnite Wolverine challenges had players searching Weeping Woods for “Mysterious Claw Marks.” Looking back, this should have been a significant clue as to where Wolverine would, eventually, wind up.

You can take a look at a detailed explanation of where to find these claw marks here, but you only need three of them. Here’s a general location of each on the Weeping Woods map.

Find loading screen picture at Quinjet Patrol site

The Fortnite Wolverine Week 2 challenge requires you to find loading screen picture at Quinjet Patrol site. If you’ve been playing Fortnite for most of the season, then this one shouldn’t be too hard to complete.

You can find the Quinjet sights around the map shortly after the bus takes off. They appear as white planes on the map, but you’ll be able to see where they’re landing from the blue smoke. The loading screen is inside the Quinjet.

This challenge can be a tad tricky, as landing in these sights without a weapon can mean death by Stark Robots. Landing late, on the other hand, could mean that someone has already cleared out the area and, potentially, destroyed the ship.

Find Wolverine’s trophy 

Wolverine’s trophy is a Sentinal head that he, apparently, hid in Dirty Docks. You can find it in the building to the south of the giant crane.

The sentinel head can be found on the ground level, on one of the shelves behind some barrels. Take a closer look at the location here.

Locate a Transport Truck

All things considered, finding the Transport Truck is probably the easiest Fortnite Wolverine challenge of the bunch. It’s been in the game since before the first Season 4 update, so you’ve probably seen it in your travels.

You can find the truck in the northwest portion of the map – near the lighthouse. Fly to the area and land at the raised circle on the map. It’s hard to miss but you can find a more detailed guide here.

Defeat Wolverine

This is the most difficult stage of the Fortnite Wolverine challenges and there isn’t too much we can do to make it easier.

Wolverine spawns in Weeping Woods but that only gives you a place to start looking. He’s fast and can make his way to the Slurpy Swamp area rather quickly. On top of that, a large portion of the lobby will be looking for him, now, and you won’t know whether or not someone already killed him until you see the claws.

This video from Tabor Hill gives some useful tips, but it isn’t foolproof. The best advice we have is to use a helicopter and turn on “visual sounds” so you can see footsteps on your screen. Fly over Weeping Woods and see if you can find Wolverine walking, below.

Hopefully, your search for Wolverine doesn’t take too long. At least, with the help of this guide, you should be able to complete the rest of the challenges with relative ease. Good luck!

Skins & exclusive console cosmetics leaked for Fortnite Season 5

Fortnite leaks reveal upcoming skins including a new Renegade Raider and Fishstick style.

Published

We’re just over the halfway mark in Fortnite Season 4, but fans are already looking ahead to what the next season will hold. Today, October 1, the Fortnite data miner, Hypex, gave us the first small pieces of information about Fortnite Season 5.

These leaks include some confirmed and unconfirmed information that he received from an anonymous source. We assume that this is the same source that leaked Hypex some early – and accurate – information about Fortnite Season 4, so we’re leaning toward trusting this leak.

So far, Hypex has confirmed a “Ginger Renegade Raider, and an exclusive PS5 skin. He’s also speculating about a skin from concept artist Sharktoofs1 (creator of skins such as the Cozy Chomps and Boxy skins) along with an exclusive Xbox S skin.

A Ginger Renegade Raider skin would make sense for the next Fortnite season, as Season 5 will almost certainly run into the Christmas season. Renegade Raider is one of Fortnite’s most popular skin variants, and Epic have been giving it more attention, of late.

The concept comes from @Fercho_UwU and is about what you’d expect: Renegade Raider with some Gingerbread clothing.

The other skin concept that’s rumored to be coming to the game is “Giddy-Up Fishstick” from @sharktoofs1. That’s right; it looks like we’re going to get yet another Fishstick skin in Fortnite.

As we covered, above, Sharktoofs already has several popular skins in Fortnite, so we wouldn’t be surprised to see another one come into the game. This one is, simply, Fishstick riding the inflatable llama from the Giddyup skin.

As for the exclusive Xbox and PlayStation skins, these remain to be seen. Of course, these are only leaks and might not come to fruition. If this is the same source that Hypex had for his Season 4 leaks, however, there’s a good chance that they’re legitimate.

We’ll keep you posted when we learn more about all of these skins, although we’ll probably have to wait for a patch or two before data miners find them in the game files.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 6 Challenge guide

The Fortnite Season 4 Week 6 challenges are here! Take a look at how to complete them.

Published

on

It seems like just yesterday that we were staying up all night, waiting for the new season of Fortnite. Surprisingly, we’re already into Week 6 with another batch of challenges to help carry us through the Battle Pass.

Although weekly challenges offer a lower amount of XP this season, it seems like we’re working through the Battle Pass quicker than normal. Even still, we have a long way to go before we unlock all of our holographic variants, so we’ll be grinding away at these challenges.

The week’s challenges are pretty straightforward. All we need to do is consume some foraged items, deal some damage, and search some chests. Here are the challenges for Week 6:

  • Search Chests at Weeping Woods (7)
  • Eliminations at Misty Meadows (3)
  • Collect Stone from Coral Castle (300)
  • Consume a Legendary Fish
  • Consume Foraged Items at Holly Hedges (10)
  • Ride a Zipline from Retail Row to Steamy Stacks
  • Deal damage after knocking an opponent back with Black Panther’s Kinetic Shockwave (1,000)
  • Deal damage to opponents at Slurpy Swamp (500)

The inclusion of a challenge involving Black Panther’s ability suggests that we could see it come into the base game this week, but we don’t know that for sure. Epic could be pushing us toward the Marvel-based LTMs that have been rotating in and out of the game. We’ll know more when these challenges go live, tomorrow.

Collecting foraged items at Holly Hedges is as easy as taking some damage in Team Rumble and eating the Cabbage that is growing in the backyards of a few houses.

If you’re having trouble catching a legendary fish, take a look at our fishing guide for Season 4. You should be able to catch one if you hit a fishing hole with a Pro Fishing Rod – but this one will take a bit of persistence.

There’s a zipline network that connects Steamy Stacks and Retail Row, so you just have to ride this once and be done with it.

Apart from that, the rest of these challenges are straightforward. Of course, you’ll also need to land at Weeping, Slurpy, and Misty to get your chests, damage, and elimination. Good luck!
