Popular Fortnite fans were finally handed the keys to Chapter 2 on October 15, as Epic Games unveiled their brand new map, leveling system, and changed loot pool.

As with any new season, players have also been able to get their hands on a raft of new cosmetics thanks to the battle pass and the overall feeling has been a positive one – for now, anyway. Yet, Dakotaz has revealed which part of the battle royale he feels is letting it down and will need changing moving forward.

epic gamesFortnite Chapter 2 has given the popular battle royale title some new life.

During his October 18 stream, the popular Fortnite broadcaster had been waiting to drop into a match when he started talking to his viewers about the new season. 

“Alright guys, listen, I love this season, but the frames are god awful at the game,” he said. “And, they’re pretty bad throughout the game – I’m just saying that man. It’s just like, what is happening bro. I love this season to death but the frames are so bad. They have to fix it.”

Of course, the streamer isn’t the first player to pick up the FPS issues, as quite a few members of the Fortnite fanbase have been looking for fixes.

Some tips and tricks have been uncovered as temporary workarounds, but they aren’t concrete for everybody and there is some testing that needs to be done to find out what works for each player.

Thankfully, though, Epic Games has begun investigating the frames issues on their public Trello board, so at least progress is being made in terms of getting a permanent fix.

When that will be, however, is a completely different story as these things can take some time to replicate. Hopefully, it won’t be too far away and the positive atmosphere around Chapter 2 will continue.

Fortnite Season 4 is now entering its final week, but before it wraps up, you’ve got one last batch of Challenges to get through in order to claim some huge last-minute experience.

After what feels like forever, the current Marvel-themed takeover is about to reach its conclusion. Galactus is hurtling towards the map, and the Nexus War is finally set for a major in-game event on December 1.

If you’re worried that you might not have time to fill out your Battle Pass before then, fear not. Epic Games has come through with more XP boosts this week than any week prior. You’ll be able to catch up and finish things off in no time thanks to this week’s XP Xtravaganza Challenges.

From where you’ll need to go and what you’ll need to do, we’ve got everything broken down. Here’s how you can complete Week 14’s XP offerings.

Foil skins for the current Marvel lineup will soon be gone forever.

There are a whopping 12 Challenges to get through this week, plenty to keep you busy. Many of these can be kept in the back of your mind while you focus on some of the more tricky ones. However, there’s nothing too complex here, so you should be able to get them all done in barely a few hours of playing.

Some Challenges ask you to use certain weapons and items. Be sure to track down Assault Rifles and Boogie Bombs in every game while keeping an eye out for vehicles as well.

One unique task requires you to keep your full health bar intact along with full shields. Obviously, this might need you to camp things out and play it safe. Eight minutes is the set time so try to find a safe spot, barricade yourself in, and wait this one through.

For more casual Challenges like fishing from a motorboat or riding zip lines to and from Upstate New York, your best bet could be to drop into some Team Rumble. Trying these in the standard Battle Royale playlists might prove frustrating. The full list of Week 14 Challenges can be found below.
