Fortnite have warned people to beware of the scam phishing emails which offer you sign ups for a fake beta of Fortnite Battle Royale on Android.

Google’s annual conference is going down in California right now, where the company announces upcoming news, and the event has revived rumors about the upcoming arrival of Fortnite Battle Royale on Android, which is still to be announced.

When Fortnite first appeared on iOS, the developers of Epic Games confirmed that the game would also come to Android in the future, without giving a specific date, only “in a few months”.

No additional information has been revealed since then, either by Epic Games or Google, and Android players are beginning to wonder when they can get their hands on it.

Suffice to say that when some players began to claim that they had received an email proposing sign ups for a Fortnite Android beta, the information quickly spread on social networks.

Unfortunately, it quickly became apparent that these emails were fake, and were in fact a phishing scam intended to steal the credentials of your Epic Games account and resell it later. This has now been confirmed by an employee of Epic Games.

So be very careful about this kind of email.

When registrations for a Fortnite beta on Android go live, it will be no doubt be officially announced by Epic Games on their social channels, and we will of course keep you up to date.

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

You’ve still got a few weeks left to finish up the Season 4 Battle Pass. Though you may want to start rushing through not only these weekly tasks, but the secret challenges too. 

Every scrap of XP will help as you look to unlock the final rewards in the Marvel-centric update.
