Fortnite’s ongoing legal saga surrounding in-game emotes and dances has begun affecting other games outside of the battle royale genre.

Epic Games are facing multiple suits from people who claim their work is being profited from and improperly used in the popular battle royale game without compensation or credit.

Former Fresh Prince of Bel Air actor Alfonso Ribeiro, who played Carlton and popularised the ‘Carlton’ dance is one of them. Others include rapper 2 Milly and the use of his ‘Milly Rock,’ Russell Horning, otherwise known as ‘the Backpack Kid’, who popularised the ‘Floss dance’ which was added in Season 2, as well as the ‘Orange Shirt Kid’ who became known for the Orange Justice emote.

While they are yet to be removed from Fortnite, some very similar emotes have begun exiting other titles.

Fans of Microsoft’s Forza Horizon 4 have noticed that the ‘Carlton’ dance and the ‘Floss’ have been removed from the game.

The emotes have been a part of the game since its release back in October of 2018 as a way to celebrate a win over friends. Other pop culture emotes, including one named ‘Hotline’ that is similar to Drake’s Hotline Bling dance, remain in-game.

Fortnite and Forza aren’t the only games to utilise these types of emotes and dances. Alfonso Ribeiro is also suing 2K Games over the use of the dance in the NBA 2K franchise.

It remains to be seen if any of the suits against Epic Games pay off in favor of those suing the now multi-billion dollar gaming company.

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

Expect the Sentinel Graveyard to be a hot drop for the next week.

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.
