Fortnite’s special holiday event named 14 Days of Fortnite is beginning to wind down, with the tenth day of challenges released on Friday, December 28.

14 Days of Fortnite gives players an opportunity to earn some special festive items, skins and harvesting tools throughout the Christmas season, with a new challenge and reward becoming available every day.

If you haven’t completed any of the challenges for the previous days – such as the dance in front of different holiday trees from day 9 – you can visit our handy 14 Days of Fortnite challenge hub.

Day 10 sees players hopping behind the wheel, as players need to perform a trick with a specific vehicle at 10 different named locations around the map.

Named locations are areas on the map that have been given a title by Epic Games themselves, such as Tilted Towers, Happy Hamlet or Lazy Links.

Players will need to get their hands on a Quadcrasher from one of the many areas they spawn around the map. If you’re not sure where you can find one, we’ve created a useful map that shows some of the areas they usually spawn.

Once you have found a Quadcrasher, you need to drive to a named location and perform a trick. The easiest way to do this is to quickly build a ramp, then drive your Quadcrasher up the ramp, use your boost to fly into the air and start spinning and flipping in the air.

Once players have performed a trick, they will see a number appear on the bottom left corner of the screen, indicating that you have performed a trick and earned trick points. Then, just land the Quadcrasher on the ground without flipping over or crashing, and you’ll earn the Day 10 reward which is a X-4 Stormwing spray.

Epic responds to concerns over leaked Fortnite player logins

Fortnite players have made big claims that Epic is leaking player logins through the battle royale’s in-game leaderboard. However, the developer has insisted the system is safe, and there’s been no evidence of hacked accounts through it.

Security scares are no joke, and while developers do their best to keep them underwraps, they can sometimes appear where you least expect them.

That’s what Fortnite pro Jonathan ‘Yung Calculator’ Weber was claiming after being mysteriously logged out of his account. The Built By Gamers player claimed Fortnite’s in-game leaderboards were leaking players’ private information, including email addresses.

People could then use these emails to either try and brute force hack accounts, or reset passwords and kick players out of the game.

“Guys, Epic Games’ infrastructure is so dogmeat that if you don’t have this turned off, people can find your email,” he said.

“That’s kind of bad on its own, but then if they have your email, they can send password resets to your account. That’s fine normally ⁠— on Twitter, it means nothing normally ⁠— but on Epic Games, it logs you out in-game.”

“This has happened to Clix, Nick Eh 30, Nate Hill ⁠— everyone. Epic Games has no idea what they’re doing. Their infrastructure is garbage. They need to change it ⁠— it’s disgraceful.”

However, people aren’t sold on Yung’s story. Fortnite dataminer ‘FNBRUnreleased’ has stated that it’s impossible. Epic’s API doesn’t allow for the sharing of information like Yung and others think.

“It is not possible to view the email of another person’s Epic [account]. Epic’s API does not work like that. I’ve been seeing this rumor from [Yung Calculator] spreading false information,” they claimed.

FNBRUnreleased’s standpoint has been backed up by Epic. The developer published a statement in response to Yung’s claims, saying leaderboards do not leak any players’ secure information.

“We investigated reports that leaderboards were divulging non-public information or causing unauthorized logouts. This is not the case.

“We are certain that affected accounts remain secure, player info (incl. email addresses) isn’t being divulged & any logout issue is resolved.”

For now, players should just always make sure their passwords are strong to best protect against any leak. Plus, turn on two-factor authentication if you can.
