Epic Games have dropped the biggest teaser yet that Predator will be the next major crossover character to join the world of Fortnite, and if you’re wondering where the mysterious pod location is, you’ve come to the right place. 

The game’s map is an ever-changing beast, that’s for sure. With almost every passing update there are big changes to the way it looks, with new points of interest (POIs) being added with each passing season, and sometimes even with weekly patches.

With the v15.20 update came the arrival of an extraterrestrial ship, similar to those Star Wars fans will be familiar with. Only, upon closer inspection, you will see that this is no Star Wars ship at all.

Predator has arrived in the Fortnite world.

When did Fortnite add the mysterious pod?

The ‘mysterious pod’ first crash-landed on The Island as part of the v15.20 update on January 13, 2021.

At first, it appeared to simply be another easter egg teasing the arrival of a long-rumored Predator skin in the game. But it was eventually revealed to be essential to completing a new series of Jungle Hunter Quests.

These new quests are exclusive to Battle Pass holders, and all of them will need to be completed in order to unlock the Predator skin as well as a series of matching cosmetics including a back bling and a pickaxe.

To complete the first of Predator’s Jungle Hunter Quests, you’ll need to find a ‘mysterious pod’ which is actually a crash-landed ship. Doing this will unlock a Predator-themed banner icon for you to use on your profile.

It’s actually quite easy to find the mysterious pod in-game, if you know where to look anyway. Below is an easy step-by-step guide on how to find its location, which is Stealthy Stronghold.

  1. Launch up Fortnite Battle Royale.
  2. Jump from the Battle Bus.
  3. Glide over to the Stealthy Stronghold point of interest.
  4. From there, head into the forest and you should find the ship waiting to be explored.

If you’re having some trouble identifying the exact spot with those instructions, don’t worry. We’ve highlighted the location on the Fortnite map below, to make things a little easier.

Once you get close enough to the ‘mysterious pod’ the Jungle Hunter Quest will be ticked off automatically.

Not only can the character’s ship be found in-game, but there’s also a selection of cosmetics inspired by the iconic movie franchise.

These include a banner icon, an icon, and a graffiti spray which can all be unlocked by completing Jungle Hunter Quests.

So, there you have it! Now you’re just a few steps away from finding an alien spaceship in the world of Fortnite Battle Royale.

A brand new Fortnite Battle Royale tournament is on the horizon for players, the FaZe City Cup, and top performers will have a chance to unlock brand new Manchester City football skins in-game. 

In what’s been described as a continuation of a “groundbreaking” partnership between esports org and former Premier League champions, a new tournament is coming soon to the battle royale game.

The news was announced on January 19, with exciting rewards up for grabs. This will no doubt be a draw for fans of English football, but a broader audience as well. On top of the Man City offerings, it’s also been confirmed that those who unlock this exclusive skin can rotate it out for a number of other club shirts – from a selection of partners.

So, let’s take a look at everything we know about the event, and how to get your hands on those elusive Man City x FaZe Clan skins.

The selection of football skins will be available in the Fortnite Item Shop from January 23, to purchase. There will also be a new ‘Fancy Footwork’ emote included in the set, which can be bought or unlocked by playing in the newly announced competition.

Though, if you would like to get them early, you’re going to have to work for it. Just like previous collaborations with Epic Games, such as Samsung in the past, players will have to earn their spot in the top 100 of a competitive Duos event to grab them. That means, of course, that just 50 Duos will be granted early access.

When is the FaZe City Cup in Fortnite?

The FaZe City Cup in Fortnite is set to start up on January 21, and will be a one-off event.

This is the first competitive tournament set up as part of this relationship between Manchester City and FaZe Clan, and it seems as if both parties are really looking forward to seeing how it plays out.

“The FaZe City Cup featuring Fortnite is an important illustration of our groundbreaking partnership with Manchester City,” says FaZe Clan CEO Lee Trink. “Alongside Manchester City, we are thrilled to be a part of a competitive tournament in Fortnite. We look forward to building this tournament and producing more entertaining competitions in the future.”

Nuria Tarre, Chief Marketing Officer at City Football Group, said: “The FaZe City Cup featuring Fortnite is an exciting first for the club in one of the most popular gaming titles globally and we hope fans worldwide will get involved in the competition and wear their Manchester City outfits in-game with pride.”

Fortnite Kickoff set explained

The set allows players to choose which kit they would like to wear, from a selection of partner clubs. Once unlocked, according to Epic Games, you can choose from the following clubs:

  • Manchester City FC
  • Juventus
  • AC Milan
  • Inter Milan
  • AS Roma
  • Seattle Sounders FC
  • Atlanta United
  • Los Angeles FC

There will also be a Pele emote, celebrating the Brazilian legend’s iconic celebration by jumping in the air and punching his fist out.

Who is competing?

Players are being encouraged to sign up for the competition, and if you’re one of those people, be warned. Some top players will be competing on January 21.

In a press release it was confirmed that both FaZe Mongraal and FaZe Nate Hill will be taking part. Those who have seen these two play the game before will know they’re top builders, and certainly will provide stiff competition.
