Where to find Fortnite Season 10, Week 8 secret battle star

Published

on

The eighth week of Fortnite Battle Royale missions are now available for players to complete along with a secret Battle Star hidden around the island.

Fortnite’s tenth season stepped away from challenges to introduce missions, with a new set releasing every week. Players only have a limited amount of time to complete missions instead of having a whole season, so there is a time constraint.

On September 19, fans were welcomed to a whole new crossover event between D.C. Comic’s Batman and Fortnite as Tilted has temporarily transformed into Gotham City due to the Rift Beacon.

Players who complete three of the ‘Gothic’ missions will unlock a loading screen that shows a hint to where the secret battle star is located.

If you look closely at the loading screen, one of the gargoyle statues has the coordinates “G2, G3, H2, H3” etched into the stone. This is the location where the star will be.

The star is located at the bottom of the four hot springs at the northern edge of the map which has been circled for you below.

Week 8’s secret battle star can be found at the hot springs.

Once players collect the star and complete their Battle Royale match, they will be rewarded with an extra star towards their Battle Pass for Season 10.

There are only two weeks left of Fortnite’s tenth season, and we haven’t heard too much about Season 11’s storyline. Do you have any guesses on what Season 11’s in-game event will include?

All Pleasant Park Floating Ring locations for the Fortnite Season 3 Week 4 challenges.

Chapter 2 Season 3 is appraoching the halfway mark – at least, in terms of original scheduling. We’re still in the seasonal grace period where things feel fresh and interesting. Hopefully, Epic keep this feeling going into Season 4.

The week 4 challenges are nearly here, which means it’s time to get those Battle Pass levels up. Most dedicated players should be well past the level 50 mark by the time these challenges are complete.

Most of the Season 3 Week 4 challenges are easy enough to finish without looking for online guides but, as always, Epic have added one challenge that requires some searching: Collect floating Rings at Pleasant Park. Luckily, we have you covered with all of their locations.

At the time of writing, the challenges have yet to release. We see that this particular challenge requires only one ring in the game files, but we’re not sure that this will be the case. We had to find four in Lazy Lake, after all, so it would make sense for us to have to visit all four locations.

The good news about this challenge is that – even if you have to collect all four – the rings are located on the Zipline path surrounding the POI. All you have to do is land at the bottom ring and Zipline your way around Pleasant to collect them all. Here’s a video of randomChievos doing just that.

You can take a look at the rest of the Season 3 Week 4 challenges here, but they’re relatively self-explanatory – nothing that a couple of Team Rumble and normal matches can’t solve. Have fun!

Ninja announces first YouTube Stream

Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins has announced his first stream on YouTube.

Published

on

Update 7/8 12:54 PM: According to Slasher, Ninja has yet to sign an exclusive deal with any platform. This first stream is not part of any deal. “Maybe he’ll stream on Twitch too.”

Original article: On July 8, one of the most popular Fortnite streamers on any platform, Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, announced that he’d be beginning the next chapter of his streaming career on YouTube. This news comes after weeks of speculation as to where Ninja and Shroud would land following Mixer’s shutdown.

To many fans, this doesn’t come as much of a surprise. Ninja was the first streamer to sign an exclusive deal with Mixer, and Twitch didn’t seem to take too kindly to his leaving. Twitch immediately removed Ninja’s partnership and even started promoting other Fortnite streams on his channel. The situation came to a head when a channel view-botted their way to the top of the Fortnite category while streaming pornographic content. This was, of course, promoted in Ninja’s old channel.

Additionally, Ninja’s good friend, Jack ‘CourageJD’ Dunlop has been incredibly successful after making the switch to YouTube. The cherry on top of this speculation sundae was that Ninja accidentally scheduled a public test stream on YouTube on July 7. His move was finally confirmed the following day, July 8.

Ninja will be hosting his first YouTube stream today, July 8. Hopefully, this means that the always-entertaining Ninja Battles Fortnite tournament series can resume – a weekly dose of high-level, invitation-only competitive Fortnite gameplay.

At the time of writing, Ninja has only tweeted his YouTube stream for all of his followers. This does not mean that he has signed an exclusive deal – only that he wants to get back to streaming. We’ll update this post when he goes live and gives the fans some additional information.

Ninja will look to continue his growth on YouTube, focusing on creating videos and streams for his fans. We’re excited to see how many people tune-in for Ninja’s first YouTube stream. It’s great to have one of the faces of Fortnite back on the streaming grind.

SypherPK offers several solutions to Fortnite’s biggest problem

SypherPK gives his thoughts on how Fortnite can solve the problem of Fortnite lobbies dying out too quickly.

Published

There are always going to be some problems in Fortnite. As is the case with any popular game, fans will always have something to complain about – both justifiably and not. Right now, though, the biggest problem in Fortnite is the pacing of public matches.

Nearly every Fortnite match plays out in a similar way as your last one. You land, loot, fight, and then spend the entirety of the mid-game phase battling Marauders and rotating to the zone. Fights are isolated to the early and late-game scenarios because the bulk of the lobby is gone before the first zone closes.

This has been an issue for the entirety of Chapter 2, and possibly longer. It’s more highlighted now, as other games like Warzone and Hyper Scape solve the problem.

Both aforementioned titles make it easy to revive dead teammates – much easier than it is in Fortnite. Warzone also has 150 players in each map, furthering the number of mid-game engagements. Hyper Scape, on the other hand, evenly distributes players to ensure that one location isn’t overrun.

Most players point to skill-based matchmaking as the culprit, but as SypherPK highlighted, this isn’t the issue. In fact, without SBMM, lobbies might dry-out even faster as good players eliminate all of the bad players they encounter.

During a recent stream, Sypher outlined the differences between Hyper Scape, Warzone, and Fortnite. He presented several ways that Fortnite could emulate these Battle Royales to help increase the number of players who survive in each match.

Sypher gave an in-depth explanation as to why Fortnite matches can seem so slow. The general point seems to be that Fortnite players have outgrown the current system as the Battle Royale genre has moved in an aggressive and fast-paced direction.

Many players have discussed upping the player count in public Fortnite matches, but competitive matches suggest that the server stability might now be able to handle it. Instead, Sypher presented a list of other solutions.

  • Making the bus move faster
  • Making gliders faster
  • Spawning players with a weapon
  • Making it easier to reboot teammates
  • Evenly spreading players by default
  • Adding another bus to public matches
  • Adding a Gulag mechanic

These may not all solve the problem that Sypher is trying to address, but they take a stab at it. It’s clear that Epic need to do something about lobbies dying too quickly. New weapons and items won’t solve this one.
