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)
  • Collect score multipliers (10)
  • Damage spawn Obelisks (5,000)
  • Work together with your squad to eliminate Gold Brutes (5)
  • Win a match without being eliminated (1)
  • Stage 1 of 4: Win with a team score of at least 50,000

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!

Fortnite players demand broken “pay to lose” Baby Yoda back bling is fixed

Fortnite players have discovered a bug that’s rendering their Baby Yoda aka The Child back bling cosmetic useless, as it stops them from being able to aim properly.

Season 5 of Epic Games’ hit battle royale introduced a major crossover when The Mandalorian made his way onto The Island. As well as a skin, a glider, and Beskar armor, there’s also a Baby Yoda back bling for players to unlock.

Claiming the Baby Yoda back bling is no easy feat, as players need to reach Level 100 of their Battle Pass to be able to carry the adorable Grogu on their back. This means plenty of grinding and weekly challenges to earn that all-important XP.

Now that Fortnite Season 5 has been out for a while, players are slowly starting to unlock the Baby Yoda back bling, but many of them are facing disappointment upon learning that their hard-earned reward is broken.

Fortnite’s Baby Yoda back bling is broken

In a Fortnite subreddit thread which has gained over 10k upvotes, Reddit user SweggyBoi highlighted the issue at hand: When you have Baby Yoda equipped, you can’t see where you’re aiming at all as it blocks more than half of the screen.

The problem seems to occur when the player enters and exits a car, causing Baby Yoda to become static. This is likely because the back bling hovers behind the player, rather than resting directly against their back as capes and backpacks do

You can see the moment where Baby Yoda blocks the player’s screen in Fortnite below. SweggyBoi and a number of other Reddit users have called on Epic to acknowledge and fix the problem.

Of course, an easy fix for this problem would be to simply not use the Baby Yoda back bling. But when most players have spent real money on the Battle Pass and dedicated hours of gameplay to unlocking the cosmetic, their frustration is understandable.

“How the f**k did this pass playtests?” asked one Reddit user, while another added: “The view truly is awful with bulky skins and back blings. This one is super extreme though. Hope we just get some FOV settings finally so we can use more skins without having half the screen blocked.”

Others highlighted a different problem with Fortnite’s Baby Yoda back bling: “Because it sticks so far out from your back, when you’re hiding it either clips through the wall or shows around the corner.”

While the recent customizable superhero skin controversy resulted in players accusing Epic of supporting “pay to win” cosmetics, the Baby Yoda back bling is being jokingly referred to as “pay to lose” as it’s actually hindering players’ performance.

Hopefully, Epic Games will issue some sort of fix for this problem in the near future.
