Epic Games have finally pulled the trigger on a zombie inspired mode in Fortnite Battle Royale, as the Horde Rush LTM challenges and rewards are now live. 

Part of the v9.21 patch, the new 4-player co-op mode is available to play in the battle royale game for a limited amount of time, where players will be tasked with fending off Fortnite Fiends, which will arrive in waves.


Not only will they face the obstacle of not being eliminated, though, as there are a number of different challenges to grind through, and a collection of rewards to pick up.

Epic GamesFortnite Fiends have appeared in the battle royale mode before, as part of the Ice Challenges in Season 7.


The main reward for completing the LTM challenges is a brand new animated Fiend skin, which is rare, and players will be able to obtain a number of XP along the way.

For those who don’t know too much about the limited time mode, Epic Games provided an official description for us to take a look at in the v9.21 patch notes – among other additions to the game.

“Fortnite Fiends are back on the island and angrier than ever!,” it reads. “Fight alongside your teammates to rack up your score by finding hidden score multipliers, opening special loot chests, and eliminating as many monsters as you can.”

The LTM was temporarily disabled on June 13 as Epic discovered an issue. However, it didn’t take long to rectify. As an added bonus, the developers are giving fans an extra 48 hours to complete the set of challenges and rack up the rewards.

  • Eliminate members of the Horde with headshots (500)
  • Eliminate Poison Fiends or Exploding Brutes from at least 5m away (20)

  • Work together with your squad to eliminate Gold Brutes (5)
  • Win a match without being eliminated (1)

We’ll be the first to let you know when the LTM is back up and running. In the meantime, you might want some help with completing the latest set of weekly tasks as well by heading over to our Fortnite Season 9, Week 6 challenge guide.


Good luck!

The grind never stops for Fortnite players, with Week 7 of Season 4 officially here bringing new challenges and tasks for fans to sink their teeth into. This week, one of the most difficult asks you to discover Tony Stark’s secret Lake House laboratory. Here’s everything you need to complete this challenge.

The Marvel theme continues in Season 4, as Earth’s mightiest heroes prepare for the inevitable attack from the evil Galactus. The supervillain is on his way to the Fortnite island, intent on altering the reality of the game forever, but our heroes are already preparing for the upcoming showdown.


These heroes have been taking over locations on the island for weeks, and while many are marked on the map to make them easy to find, some are hidden. One of these hidden areas is Tony Stark’s secret Lake House laboratory, which players need to find for this Season 4, Week 7 challenge.

Tony Stark has a named location in Season 4, but also has a secret laboratory too.

Seeing as it’s Stark’s secret laboratory, it shouldn’t come as any surprise that it isn’t marked on the map to make this challenge easier. What makes it harder is that there are a number of lakes on the island, so finding it accidentally suddenly becomes even more difficult. The good news is that we’ve done all the detective work for you, and can confirm that the lab is located in the north-east corner of the map, close to Steamy Stacks, and on the other side of the lake from Stark Industries.

Once you head around the lake, you need to find the Lake House, which sits just on the edge of the water, with some massive bushes around it. Don’t head inside thinking you’ll find the lab in there though, as what you’re looking for is actually outside instead.

Head to those large bushes that sit outside, and use your pickaxe to break them, which should uncover a special door that will take you into Iron Man’s secret workshop.

Once you make it inside, you’ll find that there isn’t too much to look at, although there are some weapons, consumables, and ammo sitting as floor loot that you can pick up and take with you as you hunt for Victory Royales.

Step-by-step guide to finding Tony Stark’s secret Lake House laboratory

  1. Head to the Stark Industries, and walk around the adjoining lake towards Steamy Stacks.
  2. Walk over to the lake house on the shore, and destroy the bushes beside it.
  3. Enter through the secret entrance to Tony Stark’s secret laboratory to complete the challenge.

Once you’re inside the lab, you should receive a notification in the top left of your screen confirming that you’ve completed the challenge, which means you can head back out and into the action.

It’s definitely worth taking on this task if you’re hoping to complete your Season 4 Battle Pass, as like the other Week 7 challenges, this offers a massive 25,000 XP boost to help you unlock new skins and cosmetic items.
