The next three weeks of Fortnite Chapter 2 Overtime challenges have been leaked, as well as the skins you’ll get for completing them.

Fortnite v11.40 released today, which means there were several cosmetic leaks to sift through. Three of the leaks were variants rather than new skins, and they corresponded to the Overtime challenges we’ll be seeing in the next few weeks.

We don’t know the order of these challenges just yet. All we know is that we’ll get one of them for each of the next three weeks. The challenges will give us unlockable styles for Chic, 8-Ball, and Rippley.

Rippley vs. Sludge

Most of these challenges are relatively straightforward. You can easily destroy ten SLURP barrels by landing in Slurpy Swamp – but you have to be careful of enemies. You can use this opportunity to visit Slurpy and Lazy Lake in the same match.

Swimming 50 meters in under 5 seconds may be easier than it sounds – we’ll have to wait and see when these challenges go live.

We’ll make sure to have a guide for you, as well as a guide that covers the hidden gnome location. The challenges will reward you with a purple Rippley variant, which you can see below.

This one was a no-brainer when we saw the purple Remedy vs. Toxin variant. I can’t wait to rock the purple Sludgehammer pickaxe

8-Ball vs. Scratch

The 8-Ball vs Scratch Overtime challenges are shaping up to be downright annoying. We’ll have to ring doorbells with opponents, which is a recycled and difficult challenge from Season 9 or 10. It sounds easier than it is – you’ll hardly ever think about it when you’re in such a situation.

Nearly every one of these challenges is going to require a guide. We’ll gather the info for you, but you’ll have to really want this gold 8-Ball variant to grind through all of these.

This one is nothing special, in my opinion. The glitched version of the 8-Ball vs. Scratch skin looks a lot better, and most players should be able to reach level 300 with all of this additional XP.

Cameo vs. Chic

These challenges fall somewhere in between Rippley and 8-Ball when it comes to difficulty. You’ll be able to complete most of them on your own but will need to make a few special trips to get them all.

These gnomes are going to be pesky during the Overtime season. We’ll make sure to find them for you so you don’t have to do too much digging.

The yellow Chic variant is a decent upgrade. Chic is my favorite Season 1 skin, but I think I prefer the regular style. We’ll have to wait and see when these go live.

Which is your favorite Overtime variant? Let us know in the comments.

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!
