With Season 9 of Fortnite coming to an end, a lot has been going on in the game. Players have been hunting down Fortbytes and this week the second to last Fortbyte was discovered in the metal llama building. Players have been watching the progress of the giant robot being constructed over at Pressure Plant since the beginning of the month. New parts for the giant robot turned up every other day, and the bot is now complete. Reports indicate that the robot will fight the creature that is codenamed "Cattus" in Fortnite game files that have surfaced. The creature the robot will fight is near Loot Lake, and the fight is supposedly going down on Saturday, July 20. The date of the fight is known thanks... Read more...
Players have been working hard to find all the Fortbytes to unlock the latest mystery inside the hugely popular game Fortnite. The mystery of what collecting all the Fortbytes will unlock is nearly coming to a close, as Fortbyte 21 has been discovered inside a metal llama structure. The discovery of Fortbyte 21 marks the 99th Fortbyte found thus far. That means there is only one more Fortbyte to go. Fortbytes represent a change for Fortnite players where daily objectives have been unveiled with each discovery and goal met, but not offering its own reward. Rather, the individual objectives go together for an overall larger prize. As Season 9 comes to a close, gamers are looking forward to what... Read more...
Epic Games introduced a new collectible item in Season 9 of Fortnite called Forbytes, and it takes 90 of them to unlock the Singularity Skin. All but six have been revealed so far. The newest one to be revealed, Fortbyte 23, can be found between an RV campsite, a gas station, and a monstrous footprint, Epic Games says. While that is a helpful clue, it is not exactly a precise location. If you are having trouble pinpointing the precision spot, good news—plenty of others have found it, and streamers have not been shy about uploading directions to exactly where you can grab it. One of the shorter (yet still informative) videos was posted by YouTuber InTheLittleWood. Have a watch... He switches... Read more...
Epic Games is giving Fornite players the ability to call in explosive air strikes on their opponents with the latest content update. Appropriately enough, the new item is called Air Strike, and it is available with the v9.30 Content 3 patch that has already begun rolling out. Fortunately, the Air Strike item is of the Legendary variant, so it is not going to be a constant bombardment of missiles (hopefully). The way it works is a user throws a canister of colored smoke at a target. This calls in a flurry of missiles from above, once the canister comes to rest. A total of 20 missiles spawn about 120 meters above the smoke canister, then rain down on the poor sap who happens to be underneath. Each... Read more...
Strange things are happening inside Fortnite, the wildly popular, free-to-play battle royale. Scratch that—Stranger Things, as in the equally popular Netflix original. Portals are popping up in Fortnite in what is a clear Stranger Things tie-in, just ahead of the show's Season 3 premier tomorrow on the streaming video service. Image Source: Reddit (TAK_Blitz) As shown above in a screenshot shared to Reddit by user TAK_Blitz, these not-so-mysterious portals (or gates) have a distinct look to them, with sprawling roots and an eerily orange and red glow in the center. They have been popping up in Fortnite's Mega Mall POI. Interestingly, stepping through them transports your character to a... Read more...
Fortnite’s latest Fortbyte challenge has player’s embracing their inner disco fever. Fortnite players can obtain Fortbyte #53 by dancing it out to raise a disco ball. This particular challenge will also require a dancing partner who is down to cut some rug with you. Players will need to grab at least one friend and head to a villain lair. The lair is located on the northern mountains that are east of the Snobby Shores. It is also the location where a rocket was launched in a previous season. You will then need to drop to the bottom of the lair to find a disco ball and two dance pads. Each player will need to hop onto a dance pad and shake proverbial booty to raise the disco ball....

Epic Games is rolling out a new update to Fortnite (patch v9.30), with one of the main new features being the addition of Chug Splash to Battle Royale. This "tasty new beverage" is sort of a healing grenade—players chuck the six-pack onto the battlefield and anyone caught within the radius of the splashed liquid is healed for +20 health. If someone already has full health, they will receive +20 shield instead. Just be careful when flinging the six-pack. Anyone caught in the splash radius receives a boost to their health or shield, including not only the person who threw it and allies that were targeted, but enemies as well. In addition, another delicious side effect is it can extend the... Read more...
It's a sad tale of misfortune for the unsuspecting parents or relatives of kids who are given access to an account on a PC or game console that isn't properly locked down. Kids often have zero concept of money and don't realize that the virtual currency purchased in games like Fortnite costs real money. Kids are also rather ingenious when it comes to devising ways to get what they want, even if their intent isn't nefarious from the start. Case in point is a man who posted on the reddit thread called TIFU. In case you aren't familiar, this is a reddit thread where people recount the ways they have made poor decisions. The poster is called A_Sad_Frog and says that being the cool uncle he is, he... Read more...

Fortbyte 49 is hidden inside Trog's ice cave in the frozen southwestern portion of the map. It's stashed away inside the small wooden house inside the... Read more...
Fortnite is one of the biggest games in the world with massive Hollywood movie crossover events and special edition Xbox consoles to underscore its popularity. The game also has a dark underbelly with over 1,000 cheaters banned during the Fortnite World Cup alone. Furthering that drama, Fortnite also has one of its top streamers fighting a very public battle against his team over an allegedly oppressive contract. The world of eSports is likened to the "Wild West" by many, as there are no rules and regulations covering players and teams. Some compare the current environment between players and teams to the way Baseball was before players unionized. Many are waiting to see what happened between... Read more...
If you've ever questioned your financial worth or how much you're making at your current job, you might want to stop reading at this point. A new report is detailing just how much the world's top streamers can earn for a few hours of streaming, and it is a staggering amount.  The report from the Wall Street Journal claims that some of the top game publishers like Electronic Arts, Activision Blizzard and Take-Two are paying streamers upwards of $50,000 to stream. And no, we're not talking about $50,000 for a week's or even day's worth or work. Instead, these companies are paying $50,000 per hour. Tyler 'Ninja' Blevins These publishers are counting on the huge followings... Read more...
There are a lot of people out there who like the action and the competition that a shooter like Fortnite or Apex Legends brings, but there are some that are turned off by the penchant for violence in those titles.

A new competitive shooter deathmatch-style game has debuted called Rocket Arena, and it aims to be different because no one dies in the game. The goal of Rocket Arena is for players to win by eliminating the opponent by sending them blasting into the sky. Each of the characters in the game has their own load-outs that include bombs, traps, spells, and rockets that... Read more...
With the Xbox One platform getting rather long in the tooth and gamers looking forward to the next generation of consoles, the next best thing that Microsoft can do is crank out special models to spark interest. Earlier this month, Microsoft launched the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition which dropped the Blu-ray drive and knocked $50 off the $299 MSRP of the standard console. Now we're learning that Microsoft has a new Fortnite-themed Xbox One S console that will soon be arriving in stores. Microsoft has traditionally reserved its special colors and graphics for its pricier Xbox One X, so it's nice to see that Microsoft is paying some attention to those that want a cheaper system. In this case,... Read more...
The latest Fortnite craze is movie-themed crossovers events. The last crossover throw-down had everyone fighting Thanos not long ago, to tie in with Avengers: Endgame. This week marks the premiere of the third installment in the John Wick franchise, as well as the latest crossover event for Fortnite gamers. The new LTM mode that goes along with the latest John Wick film called Wick's Bounty. The idea behind the mode is to collect gold tokens each time you eliminate one of the other bounty hunters in the game.
