Fortnite’s Season 7 launched on December 6 and brought along with it attack planes for players to find and use to wreak havoc across the island battlefield.

The X-4 Stormwing was a part a hefty haul of the new season’s offerings, and being the first airborne vehicle in the game, players are going to be gunning to be the first ones in.

So far the X-4 Stormwing has been a treasure trove of insane plays never seen in Fortnite and here are the spawn locations uncovered as of December 6.

The currently known X-4 spawn locations.

These locations can house one to three planes and provide instant dogfight action the moment the engines fire on.

If a player happens to be on the receiving end of a barrage of bullets, the plane can be easily be abandoned and the player can parachute to the ground or sneak onto the wing of an unsuspecting pilot.

The plane holds five empty spots to fill, room for a pilot and four passengers, and has a mounted machine gun that can overheat. The aircraft is pretty mobile as it can barrel roll, boost and hard brake to make dogfights even more hectic.

It’s no surprise the engines for the new planes are loud, so players are better off not sticking around the spawn points once they nab a craft.

Epic Games could add or change spawn locations for the plane, but this is the current list, which means these locations will have a significant player base racing to drop there.

Fortnite director reportedly hints at Smash Ultimate DLC fighter crossover

Hot on the heels of Minecraft’s huge arrival in Smash Ultimate, could Fortnite be next in line? Epic Games creative director Donald Mustard has reportedly hinted at that being the case.

Smash Bros. collaborations have long-been one of the most exciting aspects of Nintendo’s popular fighting game. Teasers are always the talk of the town as developers hint at what major addition could be on the horizon in a nearby update.

While the Smash community is still getting comfortable with Minecraft’s Steve joining the fight, it could already be time to look towards the next character.

A recent Zoom call between Geoff Keighley, Donald Mustard, and select fans was kept under wraps at the time. Whatever fans asked, whatever topics came up, it wasn’t for the general public in the moment.

However, as with most things in the gaming industry, certain details have reportedly leaked online days after the fact. Among the topics discussed was a Fortnite crossover in Smash: here’s what the Creative Director had to say.

Throughout this Zoom call, “a few hints had been revealed about the future of Fortnite,” prominent leaker FireMonkey’ said on Oct. 28. The first major revelation is a Fortnite announcement is lined up for The Game Awards on Dec. 10.

This isn’t the first time Epic’s battle royale has made a splash at Keighley’s annual awards show. The Block was revealed back in 2018 and another big announcement could be lined up for the 2020 show. Perhaps it relates to an upcoming in-game event as the new Season draws near. Or maybe there’s a chance we see another Smash tie-in revealed rather soon.

2018’s Game Awards shocked the world with one of the biggest Smash crossover announcements yet. Persona 5’s Joker joined the fight and now Fortnite could be next for a similar reveal. 

When pressed on the subject, Donald Mustard didn’t shut down the possibility. He simply “stated he can’t comment about it,” according to the leaked intel. Funnily enough, last time a dev said “no comment,” their game ended up in Smash.

Obviously, there’s no telling how significant this kind of crossover might be. We’ve seen everything from entirely new fighters to simple Mii skins as well. Given the popularity of Fortnite, however, there’s every chance a crossover with Smash would make waves in the industry.

Keep your eyes peeled over the coming weeks for any additional teasers. Keighley’s 2020 Game Awards kicks off on Thursday, December 10.
