After the Fortnite, Chapter 2 has arrived in the Epic Games battle royale title and certain fans could not be more upset.

The introduction of the hotly anticipated Chapter 2 in Fortnite has seen the implementation of an entirely new map, fresh challenges, unique cosmetics, and even a wide array of new mechanics.

With the Battle Royale mode having been the center of attention throughout the latest update, fans of the original Save The World mode have been quick to voice their frustration.

Initially released in July of 2017 as a cooperative, open-world tower defense video game, Fortnite quickly pivoted and added the popular Battle Royale mode that we all know today. 

Fans of the original Save The World mode however, feel as though they have been massively neglected by Epic Games in the most recent content drop.

While the Battle Royale mode has seen a major overhaul and an abundance of new content, Save The World mode has been kept largely the same for the time being. 

A new Epic Games blog post laid out the road ahead for the cooperative mode, however nothing of real significance has been included in the first week. Outside of AFK players being removed much quicker, the only new content this week is cosmetic. 

“Anyone else just tired of being second class players with this game?” Reddit user ‘gokublackisnotblack’ asserted in light of the recent announcement. “Compare what BR got to us, it’s just sad at this point. I realize that [Battle Royale] is their cash cow, but we paid money too and we don’t even get a 10th of the cool stuff they get.”

It’s honestly disgusting how poorly STW is treated from r/FORTnITE

The lack of fresh content at the launch of Chapter 2, as well as in the future roadmap, has Save The World players riled up. 

“We have had a lot of reasons to complain over these last months, but this crosses the line,” Reddit user ‘MAHBOY_98’ explained. “We haven’t been able to play for almost 48 hours, for what? [Battle Royale] got a lot of improvements and new features and we get f*cking nothing.”

Chapter 2 of Fortnite kicked off on October 15 after a period of speculation as to what would come next. 

Battle Royale fans have been treated to a heaping serve of improvements and new content, yet Save The World players have been met with disappointment. The first new questline of Chapter 2 will be made available next week, however it might be too little too late.

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.
