New season equals a hot new collection of skins in Fortnite. In Chapter 2 Season 4, it’s all about Marvel, with eight of the cinematic universe’s favorite characters joining the fray ⁠— with a selection of skins, pickaxes, gliders, and more to suit everyone.

In case you didn’t notice ⁠— with all the teasers and leaks ⁠— Season 4 has a very heavy Marvel theme. Plenty of fan favorites from the MCU are joining the Fortnite roster ⁠— and you’ll be able to play as them.

There’s over 100 new cosmetics being added as part of the Fortnite v14.00 patch, mostly all to do with the hit comic book and movie franchises. However, there’s also some other goodies in there if the MCU isn’t your thing.

Storm, Groot, Jennifer Walters (She-Hulk), Tony Stark (Iron Man), Mystique, Thor, and Doctor Doom are all being rolled into the Season 4 Battle Pass. If you buy it, you can work your way towards unlocking them.

Wolverine is also coming as part of Season 4, but not in the Battle Pass. It’s likely most players will get him for free just by playing the game. If you want the others, you’ll have to cough up the $10 or so to get the pass.

All of the skins will come with variants, unlockable through completing missions on your battle pass. Each skin will have a Silver, Holo, and Gold Foil variant, while there’ll also be some unique ones ⁠— like the God Emperor Doctor Doom skin.

Those aren’t the only skins coming in this update. Dread Fate, Dread Omen, and Dark Scully ⁠— all part of the Darkening set ⁠— will also be made available in the Item Shop in the coming weeks.

There’s a total of 14 new skins coming after Fortnite Patch 14.00.

All Marvel gliders and pickaxes in Fortnite Season 4 update

Unsurprisingly, all of the new Marvel universe characters will be getting individualized gliders and pickaxes. All of these can be unlocked through the Season 4 battle pass ⁠— except for Wolverine’s Adamantium Claws, which are also free.

Pickaxes like Thor’s iconic Mjolnir obviously made the cut. However, there’s some interesting designs, like Groot’s Root Wing and Sap Axes ⁠— which the devs pointed out “are also Groot.” There is also a generic Marvel themed umbrella called the Mighty Marvel ‘Brella, and yes, It’ll be customizable like the others.

Outside of the Marvel designs, the Dark Splitter has been added as part of the Darkening set for the Dead Fate, Dread Omen, and Dark Scully skins.

Each new Marvel skin will have an accompanying glider, pickaxe, spray, emote, and weapon wrap to unlock.

All Marvel emotes, sprays, and backblings in Fortnite Season 4 update

It wouldn’t be a completed Fortnite skin without a backbling nowadays. From Storm’s Cloak, to a Sapling Groot, and Iron Man’s Backplate, you can get your assortment of Marvel-themed backblings to accompany your skins through the Season 4 battle pass.

Each Marvel skin also has an accompanying emote ⁠— like the God of Thunder stance for Thor ⁠— and a spray: Our personal favorite is the She-Hulk Smash.

If Marvel isn’t your thing, but TikTok and Doja Cat is, then you would probably be interested in the new Say So emote. If you wanted to dance like your favorite social media stars in Fortnite, now you can.

All Marvel weapon wraps and loading screens in Fortnite Season 4 update

There’s a selection of wraps you can pick up to accompany your new Marvel skins ⁠— if you really want to go for the whole hog. From the Groot Sap wrap, to Iron Man’s Inventors Choice, each skin has one to fit their theme. Like most of the Marvel cosmetics, all of them will be locked behind the Season 4 battle pass ⁠— except for the Wolverine one.

There’s also individual loading screens based around the MCU, each drawn by a different artist. Finally, there’s four regular wraps being added ⁠— the Danger Frog, Melty Gold, Violet Tentacles, and Angelfish. You can expect these to pop up in the Item Shop in the coming weeks.

Fortnite Season 4 is jam-packed with new content ⁠— as you can see with everything we’ve listed ⁠— with a whole new battle pass, new weapons and floppers, and heaps more. There’s a lot to unpack, but be sure to stick with Dexerto, as we will be sure no stone is left unturned as Fortnite marches towards its Nexus War.

How to open chests in Upstate New York for Fortnite Week 10 challenges

The tenth week of Fortnite’s Season 4 has arrived, and with a new set of weekly challenges comes one task that asks players to open chests in Upstate New York. While this may sound confusing, here’s everything you need to make this challenge simple. 

Fortnitemares has officially arrived, with Midas reappearing for the first time since his Device experiment backfired badly, flooding the entire island at the end of Season Two. Midas has regained control of The Agency, and his army of Shadow Henchmen are ready to cause chaos.

Of course, the overarching Season 4 storyline is all about superheroes, with Marvel characters invading the island. The evil Galactus is on his way, and heroes like Tony Stark, Dr. Doom, and Wolverine have made Fortnite their home as they prepare for battle.

With these characters, new POIs and locations have appeared, and to complete this specific challenge you’ll need to head to Upstate New York. While this may sound like a strange request, it actually exists as a landmark inside the game. If you aren’t sure where to find it though, we’ve got everything you need to complete this task.

Where to find Upstate New York in Fortnite Season 4

When Stark Industries arrived in Fortnite Season 4, you may have noticed that the POI is located inside what appears to be a massive bubble, which covers a large portion of the north-east corner of the island. It’s easy to spot, as the area is marked on the map for you, and the trees inside it are lovely shades of yellow and orange, compared to the normal green trees elsewhere.

Fans of Marvel Cinematic Universe will know that Stark calls New York his home, with the Stark Industries tower planted in the middle of New York City. Even the Avengers base in later films is located in Upstate New York. It shouldn’t come as a huge surprise then that his location in Fortnite was originally planted in the state of New York, which has now been transported to the island.

Thankfully, once you know where Upstate New York is, it’s easy to complete this Week 10 challenge, as all you need to do is open seven chests inside this landmark. They don’t even have to be opened in the same match, so just pick them up as you see them and you’ll finish this task eventually. If you’re still not sure where to go, we’ve included an image below.

It may take a couple of visits to Upstate New York to finish off this task, as there will be plenty of other people attempting it too. While Stark Industries has the most chests, it may be easier to head to some of the smaller buildings located in the zone, as they will be quieter and make you less likely to face enemies.

It’s well worth completing this task if you’re ranking up your Season 4 Battle Pass, as this offers a massive 25,000 XP reward, which will help you unlock new skins and cosmetic items.
