The Fortnite Dockyard Deal challenges have been revealed for Week 4 of Chapter 2’s Season 1, and one of them involves visiting three different locations.

If you have the Battle Pass, you’ll no doubt be looking to complete Week 4’s Dockyard Deal challenges. They revolve heavily around the Dirty Docks – one of the new locations added in Chapter 2 – and if you complete eight, you’ll be rewarded with a new loading screen.

One of the objectives asks players to visit three unmarked locations: Boat Launch, Coral Cove, and Flipper Pond – this is where we’ve got you covered. You also don’t need to go to all three in a single match.

Epic GamesThe three locations you need.

Boat Launch location

Epic GamesBoat Launch is southwest of Misty Meadows.

To find this unmarked point of interest, head to the bottom portion of the map, southwest of Misty Meadows.

Here, you’ll find a small hill with a motorboat parked on. This is Boat Launch, and is also the same location for one of the flaming rings needed for another objective. You’ll see a popup on screen once you’ve reached the right place.

Coral Cove location

Epic GamesHead to the northwestern islands to find the Cove.

In order to find this beachy location, you’ll need to make your way to the cluster of tiny islands in the upper northwest corner – specifically the longest one, also known as Fishstick Island.

Once there, head to the eastern side. You’ll know you’re in the right place when you spot a secluded paradise with a few beach huts, some coral, and a campfire.

Flipper Pond location

Epic GamesThis peaceful pond lies between Holly Hedges and Salty Springs.

If you’re familiar with the new fishing mechanic, you might know about this pond already. If not, head out to Holly Hedges and keep going east until you’re about halfway to Salty Springs.

If you’re in the right place, you should see a small pond surrounded by trees with a house and jetty around the edge of the water.

For more information about these Week 4 missions, check out our Dockyard Deal challenges guide to see how to complete them all.

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.
