A new glitch with the Fortnite Battle Bus has been found, letting you ‘drive’ the vehicle towards Galactus ahead of Season 4’s in-game Nexus War event.

The hype for Fortnite’s Season 4 live-action event is now starting to build, after Galactus has reappeared outside of the battle royale island ahead of the final showdown on November 30.

Nexus War will likely feature all of the superhero characters such as Wolverine, Thor, and others that have recently been added to Fortnite, as they face off against the Marvel supervillain.

It was previously hinted that, during the upcoming event, Fortnite players will also need to “join the fight” against Galactus by learning how to drive the Battle Bus and a new glitch has been found allowing players to do exactly that.

Fortnite YouTuber Glitch King has revealed a clever trick that players can do to stay in the Battle Bus after the start of a game and ‘drive’ right up to where Galactus currently rests.

The content creator explained that after entering any limited-time mode where the Battle Bus paths towards the Marvel character, you need to briefly disconnect your internet connection just before the Bus kicks you out at the end.

The Fortnite vehicle will continue to move towards Galactus with your character still inside, giving you an up-close look at the Devourer of Worlds.

While it is likely that players will have much more control of the Battle Bus when it does become a feature in the event, it can give players an early feel for what the Nexus War might look like.

As of now, it remains unclear what exactly will happen during the Nexus War event but there have been a few Fortnite leaks hinting at yet another Black Hole ending to the in-game event.

Fortnite fans won’t have to wait too much longer to find out for sure, however, with only a short while remaining until Season 4 comes to a close and the Nexus War event finally takes place.

Predator has arrived in Fortnite, and he might be the most difficult Boss fight players have experienced so far. Here’s how to defeat him and unlock the Predator skin.

After weeks of teasing, the iconic movie villain Predator has made his way to The Island as part of the v15.21 update. As well as bringing a skin and a new Mythic item with him, he also appears as a Boss character for players to take on.

If you own this season’s Battle Pass, defeating him will tick off one of the newly-added Jungle Hunter Quests and unlock the Predator skin. You’ll need to wear this skin to complete other Jungle Hunter Quests and unlock the full cosmetics set, so it’s definitely worth your time.

Defeating Predator is one of the most challenging things you’ll do in Season 5 of Fortnite, but we’ve got some tips and a location guide below that should help make it easier.

Where to find Predator in Fortnite

Before you can defeat Predator, you’ll need to know where to find him. You can do this by visiting Stealthy Stronghold, which is a jungle-inspired point of interest that can be found at the north of the map.

He doesn’t remain in a specific location as The Mandalorian does, so you’ll have to do some searching to find him. We had the most luck when landing near his crashed pod, which appears at the northwest of the point of interest.

How to defeat Predator in Fortnite

As we said before, Predator doesn’t remain in the same location for long, and that’s part of what makes this Boss fight so difficult. He’s incredibly agile, and will often dart away from the player, jumping as he goes.

He also utilizes his new Mythic item, the Cloaking Device, which renders him almost invisible. He’ll only appear fully-realized when attacking a player, so you often won’t see him until he’s right next to you.

To make matters worse, there will be plenty of other people desperate to take down Predator and unlock the skin, too. This means you’ll not only have to defeat the Boss, but you’ll also need to keep an eye out for other players.

We’d actually recommend taking advantage of the popularity of this location, though. If you remain hidden and wait for other players to deal damage to Predator, you can swoop in and deal the finishing blows.

Here’s the best way to defeat him in Fortnite:

  1. Drop from the Battle Bus and land in Stealthy Stronghold.
  2. Quickly stock up on the best weapons you can find – you’ll need them.
  3. Locate Predator, who will often be near his pod at the northwest of Stealthy Stronghold.
  4. If other players are around, wait for them to deal some damage and weaken him.
  5. Use a mix of close-range and medium-distance weapons to take him down.
  6. Collect the Predator’s Cloaking Device from his defeated body, if you want it.

Unlike The Mandalorian, who was easy to spot and was best taken down from a distance, Predator will be a more up-close-and-personal Boss fight, so make sure you’re prepared with close-range weapons like shotguns.

Another tip is to take Predator on with friends in Trios or a Squad, as you’ll be able to communicate and defeat him together – just don’t end up falling out over who gets to keep the Cloaking Device afterward.

Once you’ve defeated Predator, you’ll unlock his skin. It’s truly epic, and we’re sure it will become a fan-favorite in the game.
