The Sideways Scythe is the third Sideways weapon to be added to Fortnite Season 8, and here is how to get its Mythic version.

The Sideways is one of the main gimmicks introduced in Fortnite Season 8. It’s a special zone that is home to monstrous creatures. It also doesn’t allow any building once inside.

In addition to The Sideways, Fortnite Season 8 also introduced Sideways Monsters, Sideways Chests, and the Cube Assassin. Players can find all of these inside The Sideways.

Players can access The Sideways via the large pimple-like marking on the map. They can also spawn Sideways Anomalies by walking towards the purple rifts on the map. Here’s how to get the Fortnite Mythic Sideways Scythe.

Getting the Sideways Scythe

Like any of the Sideways weapons, the Sideways Scythe can only be obtained from The Sideways. Players can find them as floor loot or inside Sideways chest. You can find these chests inside Sideways Anomalies.

Additionally, players can get the Sideways Scythe by killing the new Caretaker monster. However, these massive beasts are not easy to take down.

The Sideways Scythe can be found in five different rarities. The higher the rarity, the more damage each hit of the scythe will do. You can find them from Grey to Orange rarity.

Players can also heal themselves by eliminating players with the Sideways Scythe. It can deal up to 46 damage per swing which is more than double the damage of the pickaxe.

Upgrading the Scythe to Mythic

Players can upgrade the Fortnite Sideways Scythe just like they would the Minigun and Rifle. You will need to kill Sideways Monsters to get Cube Parts. You can use these parts to upgrade the Sideways Scythe to Mythic Rarity.

  • Uncommon (green) -> Rare (blue) – 15 Cube Monster parts
  • Rare (blue) -> Epic (purple) – 20 Cube Monster Parts
  • Epic (purple) -> Legendary (orange) – 25 Cube Monster Parts
  • Legendary (orange) -> Mythic (gold) – 50 Cube Monster Parts

Players can upgrade the Fortnite Sideways Scythe via the crafting menu. This is the same menu where players can use Nuts and Bolts to sidegrade normal weapons.

The Dish Destroyer pickaxe is another free cosmetic you can get in Chapter 3 Season 3 if you haven’t already. Here’s how to get the pickaxe right into your locker.

Fortnite players sure love freebies that the developers give them away each season. From a free Refer-A-Friend skin to a slurpy back bling that you can get upon completing quests, players have faithfully completed every task that Epic has asked them to claim the free reward.

However, over the course of several seasons now, getting these freebies is starting to feel too much work to some players. Epic continues to add away free content, but players are asked to put in the work in order to claim these rewards.

This time around, there’s a new item on the block, The Dish Destroyer Pickaxe, which you can get in Fortnite now by doing a few simple steps. Here’s how you can get it in Season 3.

Get the Dish Destroyer Pickaxe in Fortnite now

Nvidia’s cloud gaming platform GeForce Now was launched earlier this year when players were able to stream Fortnite on any device if they were a member of the service. This also allowed iOS users to stream the game on their phones despite the Apple vs. Epic lawsuit.

In a recent tweet, Nvidia announced that Fortnite players will be able to redeem a free Dish Destroyer Pickaxe if they stream Fortnite on their GeForce Now enabled devices until August 4, 2022. Players who are members of the exclusive service will only be able to redeem this for free in-game.

However, in another announcement, Epic told its player base that the pickaxe is not exclusive to GeForce Now but will also be available in the Item Shop at a later date. This means that those who aren’t able to redeem the free pickaxe using their GeForce Now memberships will have a chance to buy it using V-Bucks in the Item Shop.

The cost of the pickaxe has not been revealed as of yet as players believe that it will be released once the limited window of August 4 for GeForce Now members have expired. As soon as we get any news on its Item Shop release, we’ll be sure to update this article.


GeForce Now players have had the perks of free rewards ever since the service allowed players to experience the thrill of Fortnite anywhere on their devices. Falling in line is XCloud’s gaming service which has become extremely popular amongst Xbox players.

Ice Cream cone in Fortnite

Of a wide range of consumables on the island, Ice Cream cones are by far the most interesting consumables that are soon to arrive in Fortnite. According to various leaks, the cones will have their own different abilities and will each be of a different color. Here’s a guide on how to use them.

Fortnite has had a history of interesting consumables that have been around since Chapter 1. From Shield to Slurp Mushrooms, the way players gain health and shields in the game has relatively changed over the years.

Ever since fishing arrived at the Battle Royale island in Chapter 2, the consumables in the game saw a huge variation ranging from fishes that can give thermal vision, faster speed, hopping powers, and revealed the enemy locations.

Similarly, the consumables ranging from Chillies to Coconuts also have the same abilities apart from their health-granting prowess. In a recent game update v21.30, leaks showed that an Ice Cream cone consumable will soon arrive in Fortnite and it can feature in several variations, giving different abilities.

How to use Ice Cream cones

Ice Creams are the next soon-to-be-released consumables that will be added to Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 island. The consumable has 4 different types of cones namely Freeze, Guzzle, Chug, and Spicy.

All of the above-mentioned variants are based on existing consumables in Fortnite that have a similar ability. There has been no news so far of how they will function or where can one get them but for the use case, anyone can use it like a regular consumable and it will grant health or shield based on that.

The stats shown above indicate every cone’s health and shield stats that they grant a player upon consumption. The upcoming summer update has the community hyped more than ever before with more leaks surfacing after the update v21.30.

It sure seems like Ice Cream cones will be the next favorite consumables that the community would be using on the go during their fast-paced battles. However, once the summer update drops, we’ll update this article with more info on how to use them.

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.

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 (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.
