Epic Games is hosting a Fortnite Korea Open that will feature some of the game’s best players, Korean esports standouts and K-pop stars.

The Fortnite competitive side will be led by Myth, Tfue and Cloakzy, three huge names that will garner a lot of attention.

In addition to the Fortnite pros, retired Korean Starcraft pros Hong Jin-ho and Lee Jae-dong will be playing. They will be joined by Korean PUBG player YoonRoot.

From the K-Pop side, Gongchan from B1A4, Luda from Cosmic Girls and Mimi from Gugudan will be attending the event.

The event will be held on December 15th at Korea University’s gym. The players will be competing for one billion won ($885,000) in charitable donations.

Chris Pratt, despite being on the promotional poster, will not be attending the event.

The Guardians of the Galaxy star has become the face of Fortnite in Korea and recently a large ad campaign has been released with Pratt taunting the Korean player base.

Fortnite has just been released in Korea in November but PUBG – developed by Korean company Bluehole – is still a popular game in Korean PC Bangs. 

Epic will be hoping that events like this and the Pratt ad campaign can start moving the Battle Royale crowd over to Fortnite.

Where to find Fortnite Iron Man jetpacks

After many long months, the fan-favorite jetpack has finally been re-added to Fortnite. This time however it’s straight from Iron Man, due to the special Marvel-themed season. Here’s a simple guide for how you can get your hands on the item.

One of the more interesting and least-hated items added to Fortnite since its launch is the jetpack. After being available in normal modes for a while, the item quickly became a fan-favorite, and getting one was pretty much required if you wanted to stand a chance in the final couple circles.

Epic Games decided to remove the item back in 2018 and instead, limited it to a number of different LTMs. Now, it seems like the developer has at least temporarily reversed course, as the item is now spawning in the base game again with a Marvel-themed twist.

The new jetpack operates exactly the same as the old item that was removed from Fortnite a while ago.

What is the Iron Man jetpack?

From everything we’ve seen, it appears as if the Iron Man jetpack operates basically the same way the older jetpack did back in 2018, and that this new item is basically just a simple cosmetic re-skin.

The jetpack takes the slot of one of your items on the bottom right-hand side of the screen. If you want to use it though, you don’t have to have the item selected. All you need to do is jump and then hold down the jump button in order to raise yourself into the air, allowing you to use your weapons. Operation, as expected, is fairly simple.

The Iron Man jetpack can be found through the map as floor loot.

Where can I find the Iron Man jetpack?

Apparently, the only place to find the Iron Man jetpack is as floor loot appearing randomly around the map for the moment. There doesn’t appear to be any specific, sure-fire, place to find it, so you’ll just have to keep looking until it pops up.

The item also doesn’t seem to show up from chests, which means it’s even harder to find than some weapons and other items. Of course, this could all change as time goes on.

It’s currently unknown how long the item will be in the game for, although logic would dictate that the longest it would be available would be the end of the current season given its Marvel theme.
