New vehicles known as “Mutant Containment Trucks” should be popping up soon on the Fortnite map during Season 4, and they’ll be crucial for completing the latest Battle Pass.

Fortnite Season 4 is in full effect and it’s absolutely filled to the brim with Marvel Comics characters and themes, including plenty of cosmetics and skins for players to collect.

One of the crown jewel skins of Season 4 that everyone will be trying to get their hands on has to be the Wolverine skin, available as an unlockable reward in the Battle Pass.

The challenge for Week 5 tasks players with finding so-called “Mutant Containment Trucks,” which are new vehicles scattered around the map.

Vehicles are nothing new in Fortnite, but we’ve never seen a “Mutant Containment Truck” before.

Exactly what is a “Mutant Containment Truck” you might ask? As the name suggests, they’re most likely some type of vehicle designed to nullify or eliminate hostile mutant humans, as we would find in the world of X-Men.

Some government agency or corporation always seems to be coming up with schemes to get rid of the mutant “problem” in the X-Men comics, and these trucks could be an homage to this theme.

Since they are vehicles, it’s highly likely that we’ll be able to find them where other cars and trucks tend to congregate, like roads, parking lots, and other points of interest.

The drive-in movie theatre is a perfect example for where you might find one of these trucks.

As for whether or not these Mutant Containment Trucks will be driveable, that’s still up in the air. But Fortnite has introduced other, comic themed vehicles like the insanely-powerful Iron Man Whiplash Car for Season 4 already.

It’s unknown if Epic Games also has plans for other superhero-themed cars, but just imagine something like a Thor Mudflap or a Groot Bear with increased health and stats? That would really shake up the roads and turn our regular Fortnite matches into some kind of video game Mad Max reboot.

The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) is back for Chapter 2 Season 4, with a return to the beloved Trios format that fans have been clamoring to see make a return. With the action kicking off on October 9, here’s everything you need to know to make sure you catch all of the action.

FNCS is making its return to trios in Season 4 for the first time since the inaugural Season X event. While it’s been a pretty poorly kept secret, there are some changes to the format from when it last appeared in August 2019.

With qualifiers now completed, we’re heading into the main stage of the FNCS Season 4 event, with a full month of competitive Fortnite on the way featuring some of the biggest names in the game competing for their cut of the prize money.

FNCS Season 4 format

FNCS Season 4 returns to the Trios format that has been used in the past, and is arguably the most popular competitive format in the tournament’s history, with past events filled with massive plays and huge battles that make for the ultimate Fortnite viewing experience.

As always, FNCS runs on a points-based scoring system, with your final placement in matches contributing to your overall score at the end of the weekend. Those who manage to win a game will receive 25 points as their reward, with the values decreasing incrementally down to 17th place, with anyone finishing below that scoring nothing. There are points for finding eliminations though, so players will be on the lookout for enemies to wipe out and add to their tally.

FNCS scoring system

  • Victory Royale: 25 Points
  • 2nd: 20 Points
  • 3rd: 16 Points
  • 4th: 14 Points

  • 7th: 11 Points
  • 8th: 10 Points
