Epic Games have rolled out yet another update to the infamous Mounted Turret item in Fortnite. 

According to a tweet put out on November 16, the availability of the Mounted Turret has been reduced, meaning that players will come across the item at a less frequent rate than before.

This nerf has been applied to the default modes, which are Solo, Duos, and Squads, which leaves the item unaffected in the Playground and other Limited Time Modes.

According to the tweet, this change was made as a result of player feedback, as Epic continue to demonstrate the value that they place on what the community has to say.

It’s clear that Epic are in full damage control mode now when it comes to the Mounted Turret, despite that fact that it’s only been in the game since November 14, 

This is the second major change that the developers have made to the new item in as many days; a massive hotfix was rolled out for it on November 15 that significantly nerfed the health of its floor and overall structure.

Despite only being in the game for two days, the Mounted Turret has already received two major nerfs.

The item continues to receive mainly negative feedback from many within the player-base, with videos of its flaws popping up all over the internet.

The introduction of the Turret, coupled with the removal of the Glider Re-Deploy feature, has even led to some calling the recent v6.30 update in Fortnite the worst in recent months. 

While the future of the item is not yet clear, its fate could already be sealed and players may even see it vaulted from default modes as early as next week’s update. 


How to complete Quests in Fortnite Season 5: Challenges & rewards

With Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5, challenges are seemingly no more, at least in the form that they’ve taken for a while. Now, players are able to complete quests, which operate in a similar way but are a bit different nonetheless. Here’s what you need to know about them.

For a while now, players in Fortnite have been completing challenges in order to help level up their battle pass. These challenges tasked players with completing certain objectives around the map and, in return, they are given rewards, mostly XP. It ended up being one of the main ways players could grind up their battle pass tiers and overall level.

Now, with the start of Season 5 in Chapter 2, challenges are gone, at least in the form they once took. Now, players will have to complete Quests in order to level up their battle pass. But how do you complete them and what are the actual requirements? Here’s what you need to know.

What are Quests in Fortnite Season 5?

Quests can be found in its own menu on the left-side of the screen.

Jumping into Fortnite Season 5, one might be a bit confused as to what Quests are and why they’ve replaced challenges. While don’t know for sure why exactly they’ve taken the place of the latter, you can rest assured that they operate almost identically to the old format.

In Fortnite’s main menu, you should see a button to press on the left side labeled Quests. Clicking it will bring up the map and all your Quests, similar to how it’s been in previous seasons. That being said, these new “challenges” are a bit more narrative-focused, having quotes alongside them.

Chapter 2 Season 5 Quests list

Epic Games
Fortnite Quests are similar to challenges from previous seasons.

Quests are split up into different rarities. Everyone seems to have the two same Legendary Quests, alongside some rare and uncommon quests that are different from player to player. Once a quest is done, a new one pops up in its place, which presumably will keep happening until you’ve gone through every single challenge.

That being said, for the two Quests that everyone does have, here’s what you need to complete:

  • Mandalorian Bounties: Complete Bounties
  • Legendary Quests 1: Four Stages
    • Stage 1: Shotgun Eliminations
    • Stage 2: Assault Rifle Damage
    • Stage 3: Sniper Rifle Elimination from 150m
    • Stage 4: Deal Explosive damage to structures
  • Legendary Quests 2: Three Stages
    • Stage 1: Discover Named Locations
    • Stage 2: Talk to a character
    • Stage 3: Collect bars

New Quests should be available every week as the season goes on, much like the challenges of old. We’ll be updating this piece with new objectives as they become available.

All in all, it seems like Quests are a more refined version of challenges; gone is the long list of tasks and now we have a more organized experience. Here’s hoping that Epic continues with this style in the future.
