A new ‘Carbon’ skin and back bling are now available in Fortnite, exclusively for PlayStation Plus members – here’s how to get your hands on them.

Like previous PlayStation Plus packs in Fortnite, it’s completely free, provided you are a paying member of PlayStation’s subscription service.

Currently, the Carbon pack is only available in selected countries, including Australia and the United Kingdom, but is expected to roll out in the United states soon.

The pack includes one free skin and one free accompanying back bling, which is not as much as you would typically receive from the ‘starter packs’, but this one is free after all.

There is no V-Bucks bonus like you would get with a starter pack, but still, a free skin and back bling is nothing to scoff at.

The Carbon pack skin is the ‘Carbon Commando’ outfit, which was previously leaked by data miners following the v8.10 update.

The Carbon back bling is especially made to rock with the Carbon Commando outfit.

The easiest way to download the pack is to find it through the PlayStation store on your console.

Once in the store, search ‘Fortnite’, and then go to the game add-ons. Here you should see the Carbon pack, exclusive for PlayStation Plus members.

You can also ‘purchase’ the skin online on the US / UK / Australian website, by logging in to your PlayStation account online.

Note: The Carbon PlayStation Plus pack may not be available in your region yet. Keep checking back to see when it becomes available wherever you are in the world.

Fortnite Season 4 is now entering its final week, but before it wraps up, you’ve got one last batch of Challenges to get through in order to claim some huge last-minute experience.

After what feels like forever, the current Marvel-themed takeover is about to reach its conclusion. Galactus is hurtling towards the map, and the Nexus War is finally set for a major in-game event on December 1.

If you’re worried that you might not have time to fill out your Battle Pass before then, fear not. Epic Games has come through with more XP boosts this week than any week prior. You’ll be able to catch up and finish things off in no time thanks to this week’s XP Xtravaganza Challenges.

From where you’ll need to go and what you’ll need to do, we’ve got everything broken down. Here’s how you can complete Week 14’s XP offerings.

Foil skins for the current Marvel lineup will soon be gone forever.

There are a whopping 12 Challenges to get through this week, plenty to keep you busy. Many of these can be kept in the back of your mind while you focus on some of the more tricky ones. However, there’s nothing too complex here, so you should be able to get them all done in barely a few hours of playing.

Some Challenges ask you to use certain weapons and items. Be sure to track down Assault Rifles and Boogie Bombs in every game while keeping an eye out for vehicles as well.

One unique task requires you to keep your full health bar intact along with full shields. Obviously, this might need you to camp things out and play it safe. Eight minutes is the set time so try to find a safe spot, barricade yourself in, and wait this one through.

For more casual Challenges like fishing from a motorboat or riding zip lines to and from Upstate New York, your best bet could be to drop into some Team Rumble. Trying these in the standard Battle Royale playlists might prove frustrating. The full list of Week 14 Challenges can be found below.
