Fortnite Player Has Made a New Website That Includes All Battle Pass Challenges on an Interactive Map

Someone has designed a brand new website that includes all of the Fornite Battle Pass challenges on an interactive map.

The website, known as ‘FortFriend’, could end up being a huge and popular source of help for the popular Battle Royale title’s vast player-base.

The weekly challenges in Fortnite: Battle Royale are only available to those who purchase the seasonal Battle Pass, which gives players access to loads of in-game content.

XP points are awarded to those who complete the individual challenges, as well as a larger, bulk XP bonus for completing a whole week’s set.

The designer for FortFriend, known on Reddit as ‘tmant1234,’ has looked to make completing these challenges a whole lot easier as he has compiled all of the weekly challenges in a centralized hub, along with an interactive Fortnite map that displays where the challenges can be completed. 

A great aspect of this website is that individual challenges from each week can be toggled on and off, so that map only includes the specific challenges that users want to see.

Here is a video previewing the website and how it works.

The website has received very strong and positive feedback on Reddit, with many users commenting on how well the concept has been translated into a physical and usable website.

As a result of this sudden wave of popularity, it appears that the website went offline for a period of time due to its servers being strained from the great number of people who were attempting to access it.

Fortnite developer Donald Mustard hid some clues towards future content in the background of his zoom call today and a conveniently-placed G.I Joe figurine has convinced some players a collaboration could be on the cards.

Fortnite is no stranger to collaboration and innovation. It’s a game that knows no bounds and has collided with other characters and universes including Batman, John Wick, Marvel, and Star Wars.

Donald Mustard, the Creative Director at Epic Games, has been busy dropping hints towards future content in recent weeks. In an interview on Marvel’s ‘This Week In Marvel’ podcast, he let it slip that Fortnite and Marvel would be crossing paths time and time again.

However, it seems like that isn’t all he’s got planned. Earlier today, he took part in a zoom interview with video-game journalist Geoff Keighley and dropped some hints towards future content in a creative way.

Donald Mustard used a webcam during the Zoom call. Naturally, that means viewers could see the room he was in. However, instead of covering things up left, right, and center, he embraced it and decided to play a game — the madman scattered clues hinting towards future content around the room.

“That was SO fun and SO inspiring!” he said. “Super cool to hang out with a bunch of awesome people who all LOVE the art of games! Trying to count how many clues to future stuff I’ve hidden into the background of my ‘wfh’ space…” he added.

Fortnite players were quick to pounce and look for clues. There were lots of bits and pieces in the shot, including a couch, a desk, an exercise bike, and paintings on the wall.

However, one item stood head and shoulders above the rest. It’s gained traction on social media and convinced many Fortnite might cross paths with another popular American hero, G.I Joe.

There’s a lot of stuff hidden in the background, including a poster to Star Trek: Into Darkness. However, only one thing sticks out like a sore thumb; a boxed figure of ‘Snake Eyes’ from revived franchise G.I Joe.

Snake Eyes is an important member of the G.I Joe Team. He’s also one of the most popular characters in the story and has been involved in the story behind every G.I Joe movie and series.

Interestingly, a spin-off film dedicated entirely to him called ‘Snake Eyes’ is reportedly on the cards for production in 2021. If anything, it makes a potential Fortnite and G.I Joe collaboration all-the-more believable.

However, not everyone is convinced. Some players hope and believe Fortnite will cross paths with Star Trek instead.

It’s also possible that both of them will come into play at separate points in time. After all, Donald Mustard himself multiple clues were hidden in the background.

Either way, the hype is real, and players can’t wait to see what’s happening next in Fortnite. And, while we wait, there’s still plenty of Marvel content to enjoy too.
