A brand new set of Fortnite challenges have been leaked for Chapter 2 and judging by the name, you might be expecting to jump into a huge game of Hide and Seek. That’s not really the case, though.

The popular battle royale game has expanded its range of challenges in recent seasons, with the addition of limited-time missions and for the newest game, replacing hidden battle stars and banners with secret letters dotted around the map.

These new Hide and Seek challenges will require you to find the next letter in the word ‘Fortnite’, with players also being asked to visit a number of different locations dotted around the island.

Epic GamesSlurpy Swamp is just one of many places you will have to visit if these leaked challenges are accurate.

Not everybody will have visited every landing spot on the Fortnite Chapter 2 map just yet, but these challenges might allow you to tick-off some more in the process.

Let’s take a look at the full list, courtesy of Reddit user Maqz_, who posted them to the game’s subreddit on November 5. There are 11 in total.

The Hide and Seek challenges are now available in Fortnite, and for help with completing all 11 make sure to check out our in-depth Hide and Seek challenges guide.

It’s worth noting that these challenges are still yet to be confirmed by Epic Games and until that is to happen, we should all take them with a grain of salt. For all we know, they could be completely different when they are released.

One thing that’s notable from the list, though, is that there isn’t a whole lot of hiding involved and hardly anything to seek – making it a strange fit.

With the next set of challenges to be revealed on November 8, according to the challenges section in the game’s menu, we’ll have to wait and see what will appear.

NickEh30’s latest Fortnite tournament was quite a spectacle, but it was tainted by an alleged stream sniper, who was reported and subsequently banned despite maintaining his innocence.

Nick ‘NickEh30’ Amyoony has been hosting a series of Fortnite tournaments in recent months. The latest one was the NickEh30 Cup. It gave players a chance to compete against some of the game’s biggest names in the scene for a chance to win $10,000.  

It was all positive for the most part. A lesser-known professional Fortnite player named  Crumble managed to impress and take home the prize. However, the tournament was marred with some unfortunate stream sniping drama.

NickEh30 Fortnite stream sniping ban

In the final match, several other players landed on NickEh30, including a Twitch streamer named ArchieFN. He eliminated NickEh30 and danced on his body for the better part of 30 seconds.

NickEh30 was less than impressed and looked disappointed and deflated on stream. It was a stark contrast to his usual upbeat and positive vibe. He was convinced ArchieFN was stream sniping and hopped into the replay mode to report him and a few others.

Fortunately, Epic Games responded almost instantly and banned ArchieFN for 24 hours as soon as he returned to the lobby. You can watch a full recap of the incident below and form your own opinion.

However, ArchieFN is maintaining his innocence. He claimed he wasn’t stream sniping at all. Instead, he said he wanted to “contest someone who wasn’t a tier-one pro” and decided to land on NickEh30 after seeing him land in the same spot during a previous game.

Still, he apologized for what he did and acknowledged that some might find it “scummy.” Sadly, that didn’t stop him from copping a bit of abuse, some of which was needless and extreme.

“Why am I waking up to 600 DMs telling me to kill myself?” he said. “I’m 20, and it doesn’t bother me at all, but the majority of the community is quite younger … you really need to think about what you’re saying to people on the internet.”

In the end, ArchieFN’s Fortnite ban won’t last more than a day. It isn’t too long to wait if he’s innocent, but it’s enough for a wake-up call if he’s guilty.

Either way, The NickEh30 was a success despite the stream sniping drama, and a rightful victor was still crowned.
