Fortnite has quelled doubts from many content creators looking to participate in the game’s upcoming collaboration with Marshmello, by announcing a change of copyright practices made special for the event.

Epic Games tout a long line of amazing collaborations throughout their battle royale’s history, including an LTM revolving around Marvel properties, in-game integrations with Disney Movies, and now, a party with popular EDM artist ‘Marshmello.’

In a Tweet, Fortnite announced that it worked with the DJ’s team to ensure that streamers and content creators could participate without accruing a copyright strikes – as long as monetization for the content is switched off.

Playing popular music from a big label is typically grounds for some form of punishment if included in content without permission.

“We’ve worked with Marshmello’s team to ensure you won’t receive copyright strikes for posting the event,” the Fortnite team said. “This means you will not be able to monetize your video content, but you will be able to keep your content posted on your channel.”

The news is sure to come as a delight to many broadcasters who were on the fence about participating due to stringent rules around copyright.

Marshmello has been a big fixture in the Fortnite scene for quite some time, participating in tournaments and making appearances at many events.

Fortnite players and content creators alike can expect to drop in and participate in the special Marshmello concert event on February 2.

Fortnite’s Marvel-themed Season 4 takeover is almost winding down, but there’s still plenty of opportunities to grab some last-minute XP boosts with our guide on the Week 10 challenges.

Season 4 of Fortnite has seen tons of new content over the weeks. On top of the ample supply of cosmetic unlocks, Epic has deployed everything from new abilities to secret challenges.

With the ongoing storyline teasing major changes each passing update, time is of the essence to get everything done before we reached Season 5. Once the rare items are gone from the game, there’s no chance at claiming them anytime in the future.

So if you’re trying to make every minute count and get the most of your experience gains, weekly challenges are for you.

Things couldn’t be simpler this time around and we’ve got you covered with everything there is to know about the week 10 objectives.

You’ll need to prioritizing vehicles early on to tick the latest challenges off your list.

First up, all of the usual tasks are listed once again. You’ll need to search some chests, find some quick kills, and collect various resources. These can all be smashed out in the blink of an eye without any real difficulty.

Vehicles will be a big priority over the next few days as there are three unique challenges to tick off. One will have you racing from The Fortilla to The Authority in under four minutes. Meanwhile, the other simply asks you to stay in a vehicle for a long period of time and travel the map.

Arguably the most difficult of the vehicle-specific challenges, you’ll need to eliminate a few enemies with them. This means you may have to catch some opposing players by surprise. Be on the lookout for explosives that could end your run before it really begins.

You can blitz through a handful of these activities at the same time but others require a more focused effort. Below is the full list of challenges for the latest week in Fortnite.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 10 Challenges

  • Search Chests at Upstate New York
  • Eliminations at Lazy Lake
  • Collect Metal from Slurpy Swamp
  • Catch fish at Heart Lake
  • Eliminate opponents by hitting them with vehicles
  • Drive a boat from The Fortilla to The Authority in less than 4 minutes
  • Ride 20,000 meters in a vehicle
  • Deal damage to opponents at Sentinel Graveyard
