The popular data mining account TwoEpicBuddies has struck again, this time releasing the loading screen images for the fifth and sixth week of Fortnite’s Road Trip Challenge.

The Road Trip challenges are a set of seven bonus challenges in Season 5 of Fortnite Battle Royale. Much like Season 4’s Blockbuster challenge, you need to complete the seven standard challenges each week before unlocking the Road Trip one.

To complete the challenge, all you need to do is find a secret Battle Pass star located somewhere on the map.

Clues are hidden in the weekly loading screens so leaks often give players a significant head start in working out where to go. The Week 5 and 6 loading screens can be found below.

Completing a Road Trip challenge is certainly worth the time and effort as it grants you a free tier in the Season 5 Battle Pass and gets you one step closer to unlocking all of the season’s skins, cosmetics, and items.

There is also the added bonus of a mystery “Road Trip skin” which can only be unlocked after a player has completed all seven of the challenges.

While it is currently unknown what that skin will look like, you can almost guarantee that accounts like TwoEpicBuddies will get their hands on it and leak it before week seven’s challenges go live.

Fortnitemares 2020 could be bringing back Zombie Husks with a twist

Fortnite’s annual Halloween event has evolved over the years though new leaks stemming from the 2020 iteration of Fortnitemares could hint at a return of controversial Zombie Husks.

Introduced back in 2017, Fortnitemares began as a Save The World event. It soon expanded as the spooky festivities took over the battle royale mode in 2018 as well. It was in this version of the annual event that players were forced to fend off hordes of Zombie Husks.

Cubes would spawn around the map as dozens of AI-controlled Husks would charge toward squads. It could often be overwhelming and outright end your run if they’re not taken care of instantly. This led to a rather drastic change in the 2019 event where individual Zombies would spawn at random while looting instead.

While certain emotes and various items have already leaked, we now have a new piece of intel on the upcoming Fortnitemares event. Nothing is set in stone though it appears the 2018 threat could be returning in some form.

Zombie Husks were quite controversial in the 2018 Fortnitemares event due to just how many spawned at once.

In Fortnite’s 14.30 update, plenty was changed on the surface and under the hood. As new content was added in, Epic Games also made some secret adjustments in preparation for the Halloween-themed event.

“A sound for the Zombies cube spawners was changed in 14.30,” prominent dataminer ‘Mang0e revealed. While this could be nothing of significance, it would be odd for the developers to make a change like this out of the blue.

There’s no telling exactly how these cube spawners will be adjusted, though it seems certain they’ll be back in some form.

This means every player will need to be on high alert just like in 2018. You won’t have individual jump scares to worry about this year, but overwhelming swarms of AI could threaten your run.

We won’t have to wait long to see how the annual event evolves this time around. The 2020 iteration of Fortnitemares doesn’t yet have a date locked in. However, things typically kick off in the final week of October. 

Keep your eyes peeled over the next few days as the frightful update rolls around. In the meantime, be sure to get ahead of the upcoming event with our rundown on everything we know about Fornitemares 2020 so far.
