Back by (very) popular demand, Epic Games has re-added the refund or ‘self-service return’ option to Fortnite Battle Royale, as part of the v.4.3.0 update of May 30th.

The option was previously removed from the game on April 24th, after an “issue” was discovered – but players were desperate to have the feature back as soon as possible.

Some thought that Epic Games was attempting to simply cash and avoid losing out on profits, but it became apparent that they did in fact intend to bring back the system when possible.

The system is a little more difficult to use this time around however, so if you are looking to refund a skin on Fortnite, this guide will walk you through the process.

The option is now found in the settings menu, on the final tab, named “Account and Content.”

Be aware that you are only given 3 lifetime refunds, meaning once you have refunded three items the option will no longer be available to you.

The system is intended to assist in instances where you accidentally purchase an item, rather than because you simply changed your mind – so don’t be frivolous with your refunds.

In cases where you unintentionally purchase an item with V-Bucks, you have 3 lifetime return requests.

Only items purchased within the last 30 days are eligible. Consumable items – such as the Battle Pass, Battle Pass Tiers, or Llamas – are not returnable.

Many fans will overjoyed to see the system return after lots of requests, however as it only allows items purchased in the last 30 days to be returned, it will not cover everything you have purchased.

How to open chests in Upstate New York for Fortnite Week 10 challenges

The tenth week of Fortnite’s Season 4 has arrived, and with a new set of weekly challenges comes one task that asks players to open chests in Upstate New York. While this may sound confusing, here’s everything you need to make this challenge simple. 

Fortnitemares has officially arrived, with Midas reappearing for the first time since his Device experiment backfired badly, flooding the entire island at the end of Season Two. Midas has regained control of The Agency, and his army of Shadow Henchmen are ready to cause chaos.

Of course, the overarching Season 4 storyline is all about superheroes, with Marvel characters invading the island. The evil Galactus is on his way, and heroes like Tony Stark, Dr. Doom, and Wolverine have made Fortnite their home as they prepare for battle.

With these characters, new POIs and locations have appeared, and to complete this specific challenge you’ll need to head to Upstate New York. While this may sound like a strange request, it actually exists as a landmark inside the game. If you aren’t sure where to find it though, we’ve got everything you need to complete this task.

Where to find Upstate New York in Fortnite Season 4

When Stark Industries arrived in Fortnite Season 4, you may have noticed that the POI is located inside what appears to be a massive bubble, which covers a large portion of the north-east corner of the island. It’s easy to spot, as the area is marked on the map for you, and the trees inside it are lovely shades of yellow and orange, compared to the normal green trees elsewhere.

Fans of Marvel Cinematic Universe will know that Stark calls New York his home, with the Stark Industries tower planted in the middle of New York City. Even the Avengers base in later films is located in Upstate New York. It shouldn’t come as a huge surprise then that his location in Fortnite was originally planted in the state of New York, which has now been transported to the island.

Thankfully, once you know where Upstate New York is, it’s easy to complete this Week 10 challenge, as all you need to do is open seven chests inside this landmark. They don’t even have to be opened in the same match, so just pick them up as you see them and you’ll finish this task eventually. If you’re still not sure where to go, we’ve included an image below.

It may take a couple of visits to Upstate New York to finish off this task, as there will be plenty of other people attempting it too. While Stark Industries has the most chests, it may be easier to head to some of the smaller buildings located in the zone, as they will be quieter and make you less likely to face enemies.

It’s well worth completing this task if you’re ranking up your Season 4 Battle Pass, as this offers a massive 25,000 XP reward, which will help you unlock new skins and cosmetic items.
