How to unlock Fortbyte #28 by completing the Pattern Match Puzzle outside of a desert junkyard



As Season 9 draws to a close, we’ve got less than 10 Fortbytes to go until all 100 are available for unlock. Fortbyte 28 task players with completing a pattern matching puzzle outside of a desert junkyard.

The things that make Fortnite challenges fun are variety and rewards. Fortbyte offer a lot of both with everything ranging from location based pickups to the new pattern puzzle. Players can also earn the Singularity skin and its hidden styles by unlocking 90 Fortbytes.

We’ve seen many differing challenge types, but July 11 brings something truly new to the table. Epic asks us to head out to the desert to complete a pattern matching puzzle.

Fortbyte #28 Pattern Matching Puzzle Solution

Every question has an answer and every puzzle has a solution. While solving challenges with your own wit can be exciting, it’ll take time that many of us don’t have. We’ll help you crack the code for Fortbyte 28 with a nice step-by-step guide.

First off, you’ll need to head to the puzzle’s location in the desert biome. It’s not particularly hidden, but a map will get you there faster than personal navigation.

  1. Hop into any Core mode or Team Rumble
  2. Head to the location marked on the map above
  3. Land and loot any weapon from the junkyard
  4. Head to the puzzle on the outside of the junkyard (East side)
  5. Pull the lever and watch the colors light up, remember the pattern
  6. Repeat the pattern by shooting the colors to earn a point
  7. Get a score of 4 and unlock the Fortbyte
  8. Profit!

Also, YouTuber HarryNinetyFour put together an excellent video tutorial players as well. The video shows the entirety of the challenge from landing to the Fortbyte 28’s pickup.

If you are having serious troubling finding a game without 10 people trying to get the Fortbyte, maybe a wait a few days.

Season 9 will end two weeks after the typical ten week cutoff due Epic’s vacation and the Fortnite World Cup. We’ll all have plenty of time to complete every Battle Pass challenge and Fortbyte, so don’t panic if you are struggling to keep up.

We’ll keep you up-to-date on Fortbyte each day as well as all other Fortnite news and challenges. Also, we’ve be covering Mech vs. Monster event content as the giant robot in Pressure Plant gets finished.

How’s your experience been with collecting Fortbytes? We’d say that the process has been enjoyable and we’d like to Epic give us something similar going forward. They’re simple challenges, but they keep us wanting to get back on Fortnite for the chance at a exclusive reward.


Fortnite Creative Mode could be getting a huge expansion

Fortnite Creative Mode could bring a massive update to truly simulate end-game scenarios, according to a recent leak.



Fortnite Creative Mode could bring a massive update to truly simulate end-game scenarios.

Creative Mode was one of the most innovative additions that Epic has made to Fortnite. You don’t even have to play the base game mode to enjoy Fortnite, anymore. You can play Search and Destroy, deathruns, Zone Wars, Trivia, boxfights, and a lot more.

Competitive Fortnite players have taken to Creative Mode the most. Zone Wars gives you a simulated end-game and boxfights let you practice the most important element of high-level competitive play.

Fortnite Creative beta

Over a year ago, way back in, Fortnite v12.10, files were added to the game that we assumed would bring a massive change to Creative Mode. According to the game files, Creative can now support up to 50 players.

A year after we first heard the news about an updated Creative Beta, we still have yet to see this in practice. Since it’s been so long, many players forgot that it was even on the horizon.

After the v15.50 update, however, data miners found some new files that relate to the Creative Mode expansion. According to them, Epic are testing a beta of Creative that should support 50 players.

Such a change would be a massive step for the game. You could truly play a mini-BR game with your friends if this change went through. YouTube creators and streamers could also manage private matches a lot easier, as there’s no chance of a code leak or an unwanted intruder.

The best part of this additional player count is the ability to truly simulate competitive end-game situations. Zone Wars is good practice for a lot of us, but not for those at the highest level.

Anyone who has ever watched a tournament knows what we’re talking about. The end-game in professional Fortnite matches routinely has 40+ players in the final few zones. It’s pure chaos, and a 50-player Zone Wars lobby will be able to capture this.

Of course, the expansion also opens the door to a ton of other possibilities including massive boxfight battles and more. Epic will be focusing on the Creative side of things for the future of Fortnite, and an increased player count is an excellent first step.

Fortnite leaked skins & cosmetics from v15.50 update



Fortnite v15.50 update leaked skins

Epic Games have rolled out their first update in a few weeks, with the arrival of Fortnite patch v15.50, and a number of skins and cosmetics have leaked as a result.

These weekly updates were never missed in times gone by, however Fortnite Chapter 2 has been a lot more inconsistent in that sense. Some weeks there is a huge update with map changes, new crossovers and challenges – while others will just make very minor bug changes.

You can always read about what to expect from the patch here on Fortnite Intel, and alongside those patch notes, let’s run through some of the game’s unreleased outfits.

Fortnite’s most recent crossover was with Street Fighter and Alien, but what’s next?

On March 2, once the downtime began, a number of leakers started looking into the game’s files to see what had changed. To their surprise, with just two weeks left in the season, not much had been tweaked in terms of content.

However, we do have some leaked skins and cosmetics to dig through – courtesy of Lucas7Yoshi and VastBlast.

Keep an eye out on the Fortnite Item Shop and you never know, one or two may appear there in the near future.

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.

Newly-added Exotics (Update)

February 24 Exotic Shuffle (Update)

On February 24, Epic shuffled some of the original and new Exotic weapon locations, giving them to new NPCs across the Fortnite map. The Storm Scout Sniper, Nighthawk Revolver, and Hop Rock Dualies now have new homes. You can view them on the map, below.

We wouldn’t be surprised to see Epic shuffle the locations once again, so we’ll update this map and article if we see any more changes.
