UK based esports organization FNATIC are set to hold ‘tryouts’ for their competitive Fortnite team at the upcoming E3 convention in Los Angeles.

In an unprecedented move, Fortnite players who believe they possibly have the talent to compete with the very best, will have a chance to prove it in front of the watchful eyes of FNATIC’s scouts.

FNATIC are just the latest team to take serious interest in Fortnite esports, following the announcement by developers Epic Games that $100m would be put towards prize pools for tournaments, for the 2018-19 season.

Top esports organizations including Team Envy, Team SoloMid, FaZe Clan and Team Liquid have already recruited players, but FNATIC are taking a different approach.

Having already signed on top Fortnite player Johan “Ettnix” Bengtsson, FNATIC are looking to fill out the rest of their roster from talent at the E3 expo.

The tryouts will be located within DXRacer’s booth [Booth #2513] at the main E3 show, the company behind the world’s best gaming chairs and an official partner of FNATIC.

It’s a first come, first served event where players will have one life in a solo game in a bid to win prizes from FNATIC’s brand new range of Gear products that launched just weeks ago.

Kills will be rewarded more than match wins: 5 kills earns players a mousepad and 10 kills earns players a FNATIC Gear Clutch 2 mouse. Players that deliver the best performance of the day will also be rewarded with a FNATIC Gear Streak Keyboard.

For those players who really impress the scouts and Ettnix himself, FNATIC say they will be looking for players to join the organization and compete under the FNATIC banner.

“As always with FNATIC, we’re looking to recruit the world’s best. By running this experiment at E3, which is the first time we’ve ever done anything like this as an organisation, we are providing fans with the opportunity to showcase their ability on Fortnite and have some fun.

You never know, we may even unearth some hidden talent that could one day compete for FNATIC.”

The tryouts will be held Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at E3, for two hour sessions. The full schedule:

Tuesday 12th June: 5PM -7PM

Wednesday 13th June: 12AM-2PM

Thursday 14th June: 3PM-5PM

Ettnix, currently the captain of the FNATIC Fortnite team and top five player in the world, will of course be there potentially looking for a future teammate.

“For players that live and breathe esports, an opportunity like this is one in a million.

This is their chance to show up and impress when the pressure is on. I might even give a few the chance to play against me!.”

And even if you are unable to prove yourself worthy of a spot on the team, at least there are those incredible prizes to win simply for playing.

As mentioned, it is operated on a first come, first serve basis, so if you are attending E3 and this sounds like an opportunity for you, make sure to head the DXRacer booth [#2513] ASAP on the scheduled days.

Wolverine, the fierce member of the X-Men, has gotten himself a cool new skin to unlock in Fortnite. But you’ll need to jump through a few hoops to unlock it. This guide will tell you how to unlock the Wolverine Logan Skin in Fortnite.

Fortnite is always getting a stream of new content to unlock and obtain. The latest content, announced via Fortnite‘s Twitter, is a brand new skin for Wolverine that pays homage to his origin character – Logan.

As usual, these rare skin styles don’t come easily, so you’re going to have to work to unlock the man with dangerous adamantium claws. Luckily enough, we know exactly what you need to, and how to do it.

How to unlock Logan skin

In order to unlock the Logan skin, you’ll need to slice your way through 60 of the game’s weekly challenges – whichever ones you want to complete is entirely up to you.

In addition to this, you’ll also need to complete 6 of Wolverine’s Battle Pass Challenges. Again, the game doesn’t specify any, in particular, meaning you have the unbridled freedom to do the ones you want to.

Weekly challenges typically drop every Thursday, and we’ll have weekly challenge guides to get you through them all. It might take a while to grind through them, but Epic confirmed that Season 4’s Weekly and Wolverine Challenges stay available all through the rest of the Season.

It’s entirely possible that you’re already well on the way to fulfilling these demands and very soon you’ll have your very own Logan outfit.

Naturally, to obtain the mature version of Wolverine, you do need to already have possession of the original Wolverine costume first. Just in case you’re unfamiliar with how to do so, we do have tips on how to do that too.

You will need to complete 6 specific Wolverine challenges:

Step 1 – Complete ‘Investigate Mysterious Claw Marks

  • Jump from the Battle Bus and land at Weeping Woods
  • Use the map below to see the locations you should visit
  • Investigate each in the bathroom, on the fridge, and on the trailer

Step 2 – Complete ‘Find loading screen picture at Quinjet Patrol site

  • Exit the Battle Bus near the middle of the map
  • Land at the Quinjet ship, which spawns at different places each time
  • Enter the Quinjet, and find the loading screen
  • Search the loading screen and you’re done
  • Complete ‘Find Wolverine’s Trophy at Dirty Docks’

Step 3 – Complete ‘Launch off all Sentinel Hands without touching the ground

  • Exit the Battle Bus at Dirty Docks.
  • Glide over towards the warehouses in Dirty Docks, landing at the one with all the vases.
  • Go inside and interact with the Sentinel Head to complete the challenge.

Step 4 – Complete ‘Locate a Mutant Containment Truck

  • Exit the Battle Bus at Dirty Docks
  • Head over to the sentinel robots again, and string together launches from their hands
  • Land on the last one to complete the challenge
  • Complete ‘Defeat Wolverine’

Step 5 – Complete ‘Locate a Mutant Containment Truck

  • The Trask Transport Truck landmark can be found northeast of Coral Castle and southeast of Lockie Lighthouse. The Truck will be sitting a piece of rock that has introduced in the latest map changes.

Step 6 – Complete ‘Defeat Wolverine’

  • It would help to have a whole squad ready to take down the clawed superhero, as by far one of the most difficult bosses to kill by yourself, however, it can still be done.
  • Once you grab your gear to defeat him, you will need to track the Marvel hero down deep within the Weeping Woods POI or on the outskirts of Slurpy Swamp. You can find all spawn locations for Wolverine below.

Once you’ve completed these 6 steps, you should then unlock Wolverine.
