New POIs enter Fortnite as the Season 4 map rapidly develops

New locations are popping up left and right in Fortnite Season 4. Which one will be next?



Fortnite Season 4 isn’t even a week old and the map is already beginning to take shape. When Season 4 first released, we saw a long list of leaked POIs come with it. Based on the previous seasons, we expected the map to slowly develop over the course of several months. A few days later, however, we already have three of the leaked POIs in the game.

The first one to enter Fortnite was the most innocuous: The Trask Transport Truck. We’re not sure which character this relates to – outside of Bolivar Trask, a supervillain popular in the X-Men storylines. Bolivar Trask is, largely, a normal person, however. Is there another mutant inside of this truck?

Either way, you can find this small area outside of the lighthouse in the northwestern corner of the map. Its presence helps fill-out the relatively vacant area and adds some mobility through the rifts.

Next up, we have Ant Manor outside of Holly Hedges. As we predicted, the giant dog house replaced the old Shadow hideout from Seasons 1 and 2.

Like the Trask Transport Truck, Ant Manor is surrounded by rifts. You can find a few Easter Eggs from the Ant-Man universe as well, including literal ant eggs, and a dog bowl for one of Ant-Man’s giant pet ants.

Today, September 1, Epic added yet another POI to the game: Panther’s Prowl monument. As reported, this monument is set just outside of Misty Meadows. It’s impossible to miss, as it’s the biggest landmark that Epic have added this season.

The monument comes at the perfect time, as fans everywhere mourn the loss of Black Panther actor, Chadwick Boseman. Many expect Epic to immortalize Boseman’s portrayal of Black Panther through a Fortnite skin.

These aren’t the only changes that Epic have made to the map. We also have a progressive POI developing before our eyes. The Stark Tech beacons are activated, creating a shield bubble on the northeast portion of the map.

If you visit one of these beacons, you can see the bubble beginning to take shape. It’s already developed quite a bit after activating this past weekend.

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.

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.
