There were two secret challenges added to Fortnite in v12.30. Take a look at the secret Honey and Gnome locations to complete your challenge and earn XP.

Fortnite v12.30 released today, March 31, and players are still finding all of the different changes that the update brought. We now have two new items with talk of Deadpool taking over the Yacht and bringing his mythic Hand Cannons with him.

One of the under-the-radar changes can be found in the Battle Pass tab. Navigate to Skye and your Daily Challenges, and you’ll see some new graphics surrounding the map.

The first thing that you need to find is a hatch, which is located at the newest building in Weeping Woods. Go downstairs to the area where the stuffed bears are meeting and you’ll complete the first stage of the challenge.

After that, you’ll see the images of trees next to Skye in the Daily Challenge section of the Battle Pass tab. These are the locations of the Honey Pots for the secret ‘For the bears’ challenge.

‘For the Bears’

Now we know what these troublesome bears were up to in the basement of that building. They were plotting their war against the gnomes of the island, which is why they have one sitting in a jail cell.

The first stage of this challenge will be ‘For the Bears,’ although the ‘For the Gnomes’ version are largely located in Weeping Woods, where the challenge begins. It doesn’t seem to matter which one you do first.

The Daily Challenge tab tells you the general location of each Honey Pot, but here’s a video that outlines all of them so you don’t have to go searching.

‘For the Gnomes’

At the time of writing, it’s unclear whether you can complete both of these challenges or if you have to choose a side. It appears as though you can complete both sides of the challenge, however.

The Gnomes need help with their telescopes. You can find them all scattered around the Weeping Woods area, so you won’t have to look very far. You can likely find all of them in one match, once you unlock the challenge.

Here’s another short video from wolker4 that gives you all of the gnome locations.

Fortnite players were complaining about the amount of XP we get this season. When most dedicated players made it to 300 last season, anything short would have been a bit disappointing.

Recently, though, Epic have been adding some new ways to earn XP. We have the Oro challenges that grant 100,000 XP each and now these that will give us 80,000 XP for free.

It still might be difficult to max-out your gold skins this season, but not impossible.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 6 Challenge guide

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

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!

New esports org Gamma Gaming makes splash with Fortnite roster

A new organization, Gamma Gaming, has entered the professional Fortnite arena with some huge signings.

Published

Fortnite is, again, the driving force behind the creation of an esports organization – this time, in the European market. Gamma Gaming – established by Arsenal FC player, Sead Kolašinac – made a splash on the EU Fortnite scene by announcing the acquisition of six Fortnite players on September 27.

The announcement included some of the hottest professional free agents in the region: Th0masHD, Kami, Tschinken, and Merijn along with content creators Obitoo and Mambo.

The most noteworthy of these acquisitions is, likely, Th0masHD who qualified for the Fortnite World Cup, placed 4th in the recent Solo FNCS, won the BenjyFishy Cup, and, most recently, placed first and second in two of the FNCS Warmup competitions.

Going into the Season 4 Trios FNCS, he and his team are one of the top picks to win it all.

Gamma Gaming’s model follows that of another new organization, One Percent, which has built its foundation on the back of their professional Fortnite lineup. The young org will, undoubtedly, branch out from here, but they’re starting with solid EU Fortnite talent.

With some strong European players on their team, it will be interesting to see where these new Gamma Gaming recruits land when the FNCS competition comes around. We have a new organization to keep our eyes on.

Leak

Fortnite leak reveals new SHIELD Henchmen coming soon

New Henchmen are coming to Fortnite, pointing to the spawn island helicarrier entering Fortnite as a POI.

Published

Fortnite Season 4 might be the most progressively evolving season of Chapter 2, so far. We’re getting the map evolution that we thought we’d get last season, this time with fan-favorite Marvel characters.

Players were split as to whether or not the Marvel crossover would be good for Fortnite. Now, five weeks in, it’s hard to argue that Season 4 isn’t the most entertaining season in the new chapter. Epic are keeping the game fresh and it’s bringing players back. There’s a reason that Ninja is playing Fortnite again, this season.

One of the map developments that hasn’t yet come to the game is a helicarrier appearing above the map. This is rumored to be the same helicarrier used as the Season 4 pregame island.

More recently, however, popular data miner, Hypex, revealed that there are unused Henchmen in the game files. These Henchmen are, reportedly, members of the Marvel Comics organization, SHIELD.

According to this leak, SHIELD is running the spawn island helicarrier as a base of operations. Another leaker, ShiinaBR, replied to Hypex’s tweet, linking these two pieces of information. His conclusion was that the SHIELD Henchmen will enter the game when the helicarrier moves over the map.

We’ve already seen several Fortnite creators like SypherPK and Ali-A make their way to the spawn island from a Battle Royale lobby. There’s a vault on this island, and they tested whether or not one of the keys that Doctor Doom or Iron Man carry will unlock it. As you might expect, their keys didn’t work.

All of this points to the idea that the current helicarrier – or spawn island – will, eventually, be a POI in Fortnite. We may have to build up to it or take a helicopter, making it one of the more exclusive places to loot. For now, all we can do is speculate – but we’ll let you know when we learn more.
