Published

As Epic Games heads for a well earned vacation, they’ve left behind two weeks worth of LTMs, goodies, unlockables, and more. All of the upcoming content has been detailed in a new Fortnite blog post.

Fortnite events come in all sizes ranging from small two-day thrills to weeks worth of content driven parties. The 14 Days of Summer event follows the model of the latter and is set to bring many temporary changes to Fortnite.

In a new blog post, Epic goes into detail about every new LTM, 14 Days of Summer content updates, core mode changes, and more. Let’s hop right in.

14 Days of Summer Schedule & Information

14 Days of Summer – Epic Games

While Epic tends to keep a tight lid on upcoming content and events, they’ve taken a more open approach with the entirety of 14 Days of Summer. The event’s details have been laid out in a new blog post from the developer along with info on LTMs, returning vaulted weapons, and more.

Epic starts off by introducing player’s to the new summer event and a short description of what you can expect.

“Heya folks,

It’s time to soak up some rays during Fortnite’s 14 Days of Summer. Each day, drop into Fortnite for something new.

In Battle Royale, each day will feature:

  • A weapon unvaulted for 24 hours only.
  • A new LTM to play (check out the full selection of LTMs that will debuting below).
  • A daily challenge and free reward.
  • New outfits and more in the Item Shop.

Sun’s out, fun’s out in Creative as well! Jump in daily for a new featured island.

Also in Save the World, complete a new quest every day to help Homebase host the hottest summer party around and score some summer freebies in the store. Complete quests to earn heaps of Summer Tickets; complete all 14 to unlock a new explosive weapon!

Catch you on the Battle Bus!”

As you can see, the event will be jam-packed with content. The 24 hour vaulted weapon returns looks to be an excellent way to bring back some fan favorites. It’s also a reasonable method by which to implement the more ‘OP’ items (Infinity Blade, Zapatron) back into Fortnite temporarily.

Daily challenges with additional rewards are a great way for Epic to reward player loyalty throughout the event. We’ll keep updating on daily rewards and exclusive summer cosmetics as they are released. Be sure to login daily to keep track of the 14 Days content.

The 14 Days of Summer event will run from June 24th to July 8th. Now, onto the Limited Time Modes and what they have to offer.

Fortnite leaks confirm Beerus, Goku, and Vegeta skins for Dragon Ball Z crossover in Chapter 3

Anime fans in the Fortnite community are waiting for the Dragon Ball Z crossover, and leaks have confirmed that it will bring in Beerus.

Fortnite Goku and Beerus skins

Fortnite v21.30 update introduced a ton of new content and the files now have more Dragon Ball Z elements. From skins for Beerus, Goku, and Vegeta to a Bulma reference, here’s everything we know so far.

Fortnite players were certainly shocked when they came across leaks regarding a Dragon Ball Z crossover. Both waves of the Naruto cosmetics were a massive hit in the Item Shop and it is evident that the developers now wish to capitalize on other popular anime series.

Leaks previously revealed that four skins will arrive in the first-ever Dragon Ball Z x Fortnite crossover, and one of them is going to be Beerus.

Fortnite is working on a Beerus skin for the Dragon Ball Z crossover

As per prominent leaker HYPEX, Epic Games is working on a purple skin codenamed ‘Cat’. For anyone who’s watched Dragon Ball Z, this isn’t a tough one to crack. Beerus, the god of destruction of Universe 7, perfectly fits this description.

With this, three skins have been confirmed for the upcoming DBZ crossover:

  • Goku
  • Vegeta
  • Beerus

The fourth skin will be a female character according to leaks, and it is safe to assume that it will be Bulma.

Following the v21.30 update, HYPEX discovered that one of the Fortnite x DBZ quests will have a beach umbrella setup. This could be a reference to many things like the Kame House, Bulma, or Beerus but it is too early to confirm it.

The Creative Stamina item that started all the rumors about the crossover will also be available on the map. It might be a part of some quests or the developers might just tease the crossover through it.

Last but not least, the Attack Pods from Dragonball will arrive as Gliders in Fortnite. The 21.30 patch added a glider texture with a striking resemblance to these pods and even its codename, StaminaVigor, suggests that it is related to DBZ.

Fortnite x Dragon Ball Z crossover to have a special event screen, quests, and rewards

It seems like the DBZ crossover will be quite similar to Naruto. Players can look forward to taking part in challenges that will grant them free DBZ-themed skins. Obviously, this will be accompanied by Goku, Vegeta, and Beerus outfits in the Item Shop.

The official website for the DBZ crossover is in the works. It should become functional by August, which is also when Epic Games will officially announce the collaboration.

As of now, this is everything we know about the upcoming DBZ x Fortnite crossover. The next update for Chapter 3 Season 3 will be out after four weeks, and until then, players can enjoy the new summer-themed content.

Fortnite update v21.30 patch notes: No Sweat Summer event, Prime Shotgun, more

Fortnite v21.30 is finally here. From the No Sweat Summer event to new POIs to weapons, here’s everything that arrived with it.

Published

Fortnite v21.30 summer event art

Ahead of the developers’ summer break, Fortnite has released the v21.30 update. It has arrived with the No Sweat Summer event, map changes like Daily Bloomgle, new Prime Shotgun, and more.

The hype for Fortnite v21.30 was sky-scraping because Epic Games will soon go on a break till the second week of August. This means that the battle royale title won’t experience any live changes for the upcoming weeks, and the latest update should ensure that the community doesn’t get bored.

Fortnite v21.30 brings in a No Sweat Insurance NPC, summer-themed POI, and new No Sweat Summer event quests

Fortnite players desperately wanted to celebrate the summer in battle royale modes this time. Luckily, the No Sweat Summer event is here with the v21.30 update.

No Sweat Insurance quests will replace the Vibin quests for the next four weeks as the Scientist’ research regarding the Reality Tree will be halted temporarily.

No Sweat Summer quests

The latest No Sweat Summer quests in Fortnite are:

  • Land after jumping from the Battle Bus during the No Sweat Summer event
  • Carry the No Sweat sign and place it at a sponsorship location
  • Complete a lap around the boat race circuit after the starting countdown
  • Make a Character dance to a Boogie Bom
  • Emote at different promotional dance floor locations
  • Ring doorbells until they break
  • Catch 3 seconds of air while driving a Motorboat
  • Remove No Sweat signs from recalled products
  • Place the No Sweat signs in an official bin
  • Pop No Sweat Summer inflatable objects
  • Jump on umbrellas along the beach
  • Kick a beach ball and kick a giant beach ball
  • Fire off the Firework Flare Gun at Mighty Monument or Tilted Towers
  • Bust through doors in different neighborhoods
  • Destroy large sea buoys with Motorboat Missiles

These quests will grant 15k XP each and a new Sweaty Sailer umbrella glider will be a free reward for completing them. The quests also indicate that the Boogie Bombs will return soon. The goofy item has been a fan-favorite for ages, and it makes perfect sense for it to return during a Vibin’ themed season.

New summer-themed NPCs will now roam around the island. These include:

  • Unpeely
  • Beach Bomber
  • Summer Drift
  • The Underwriter
  • Boardwalk Ruby

The Underwriter is the newest NPC in Fortnite and represents the New Sweat Insurance building from Tilted Towers. In contrast, Unpeely, Beach Bomber, and Boardwalk Ruby are famous characters who always return during the summer.

Fortnite community to vote for Tilted Tower buildings through Rebuild the Block quests

The restoration of Tilted Towers began in Chapter 3 Season 3. Fortnite asked map builders to come up with their best building designs and nine buildings have made the cut.

In the coming weeks, players will donate bars for the construction projects in Tilted Towers. The building design with the most votes will officially become a part of the POI. This will also help players in completing the Rebuild The Block quests:

  • Donate Bars voting for construction projects on The Block
  • Survive Storm Phases during the Rebuild the Block Event
  • Eliminate enemy players during the Rebuild the Block Event
  • Complete Rebuild the Block quest stages (3/7/12).

It is clear that we’ll witness new Rebuild The Block quests every week and the developers are yet to reveal the subsequent stages.

To be fair, the XP crisis in Chapter 3 Season 3 could come to an end now as every Rebuild The Block quest will reward players with 14,000 XP.

New Prime Shotgun and consumable Ice-Cream item enter the loot pool with Fortnite v21.30

A brand-new Prime Shotgun will be available in chests, supply drops, and floor loot with v21.30. The stats of this weapon at Rare rarity are:

  • DPS-88
  • Reload Time-4.5
  • Spread-1
  • Clip size– 4
  • Headshot damage– 138
  • Fire Rate– 1.05

Leaks have revealed that the Prime Shotgun is an explosive weapon with a surprisingly long range for a shotgun. Its damage output is brilliant and the slow fire rate seems to be the only downside.

New consumable items have been added in the form of Ice Cones. These include:

  • Lil Whip’s Special Serve for Health and Shield
  • Guzzling Icecream Cone which slowly heals health
  • Frozen Iceream Cone for Health and it makes things slippery
  • Icecream Cone for Health
  • Spicy Icecream Cone for Health and Shield

Interestingly, the files of the Burst SMG have been updated as well and it might return soon.

Daily Bugle changes to Daily Bloomgle in Fortnite v21.30 and other map changes

Epic Games has continued the amazing map changes in Chapter 3 Season 3 with the latest update. Daily Bugle, under the effect of the Reality Tree, is now called Daily Bloomgle. As usual, it will now switch between themes based on Neo Tilted, Coral Castle, Colossal Coliseum, and more.

The Reality Tree will continue to grow and after Daily Bugle, it’ll reach Condo Canyon.

Last but not least, a summer-themed stage will be set up on the island for No Sweat Summer. This is where players can expect to complete their event-based quests and earn a ton of XP.

Hotfix updates will be released weekly but no major Fortnite updates will arrive for almost a month now. The developers have already added weekly quests till Week 10, and the Dragon Ball Z crossover will be released after the break.

Fortnite Indiana Jones quests: How to find the secret door in Shuffled Shrines

Fortnite players can finally unlock Indiana Jones with v21.20. They must find the secret door in Shuffled Shrines and here’s a guide for it.

Published

Indiana Jones in Fortnite

The Indiana Jones quests are finally here in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3. Here’s how you can find the secret door past the main chamber in Shuffled Shrines.

While players were expecting Fortnite v21.20 to revolve around No Sweat Summer, it has turned out to be all about Indiana Jones. The secret skin for this season’s Battle Pass is now unlockable through challenges and a brand new POI called Shuffled Shrines has been added to the map.

The Shuffled Shrines puzzle in Fortnite allows players to enter the secret door

First and foremost, you must visit the brand new Shuffled Shrines POI on the Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 island. It is located south of Sanctuary, and has been marked in the image below:

After landing, you have to search the location for clues and find four runes on each edge of Shuffled Shrines. They will display one of these Red, Blue, and Yellow symbols:

The runes scattered in Shuffled Shrines will have such symbols (Image via YouTube/ChillNikov)

The runes (clues) will be scattered across Shuffled Shrines and their symbol resets every game. Hence, you should not try copying the patterns that worked for others.

It is important to find the fure runes and then head to the middle of Shuffled Shrines where you will find four interactive runes in front of a door.

Solving the puzzle is basically a game of hit-and-miss. You have to rotate the runes according to the clues. To open the door, the symbols on the runes in front of the door should be identical to the ones that are scattered around Shuffled Shrines.

Apparently, the symbol of the runes on the left should match with the rune located in the southwest corner of Shuffled Shrine. Similarly, the one placed second from the left should match with the rune located on the top right corner (Northwest).

After solving the puzzle correctly, the main chamber should open. However, be careful because the path is full of traps.

Where is the secret door past the main chamber in Shuffled Shrine

It is important to note that the challenge doesn’t complete when you solve the puzzle and enter the main chamber. There’s an artifact inside that grants 250 Gold Bars, but more importantly, there’s a secret door to the right of this artifact. The entrance is hidden by green bushes.

Players can enter this area and find two chests inside which should complete the Indiana Jones challenge. This quest will not only provide XP, but will help in unlocking the character’s outfit and a selectable style.

Finding the secret door past the main chamber is clearly more complex than any of the challenges we’ve ever seen in Fortnite. The puzzles and the traps are already too harsh but before that, players must fight a ton of opponents who’ll land to complete the same quest.
