Epic Games add a brand new set of Missions to Fortnite every week in Season 10, and thanks to the work of data miners, we can take an early look at the Storm Racer challenges which launch on September 19.

In previous seasons, developers Epic Games would add seven total challenges to the game every week, but decided to freshen the system up by introducing Missions.

These Missions boast 14 challenges divided into two sections, normal and prestige, and offer XP and Battle Pass stars to those who complete them, and often reward players who manage to finish all 14 with special cosmetic items.

Epic GamesFortnite players will be spending a lot of time around the storm in Week 8.

While the Missions don’t release until Thursday, September 19, data miner @archer_fortnite trawled through the files and items included in the v10.30 update and managed to find the Season 10, Week 8 challenges.

These tasks are titled “Storm Racers,” and see players spending a lot of time inside Fortnite’s storm, which is used to define the play area and shrink the map as the match goes on.

Fans of the game who take on these challenges will have to deal damage to players who are in the storm, visit the center of storm circles, and even heal themselves using one of Fortnite’s consumable items while sitting inside the storm.

You can view the leaked Season 10, Week 8 Storm Racer Missions below.

The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) is back for Chapter 2 Season 4, with a return to the beloved Trios format that fans have been clamoring to see make a return. With the action kicking off on October 9, here’s everything you need to know to make sure you catch all of the action.

FNCS is making its return to trios in Season 4 for the first time since the inaugural Season X event. While it’s been a pretty poorly kept secret, there are some changes to the format from when it last appeared in August 2019.

With qualifiers now completed, we’re heading into the main stage of the FNCS Season 4 event, with a full month of competitive Fortnite on the way featuring some of the biggest names in the game competing for their cut of the prize money.

FNCS Season 4 format

FNCS Season 4 returns to the Trios format that has been used in the past, and is arguably the most popular competitive format in the tournament’s history, with past events filled with massive plays and huge battles that make for the ultimate Fortnite viewing experience.

As always, FNCS runs on a points-based scoring system, with your final placement in matches contributing to your overall score at the end of the weekend. Those who manage to win a game will receive 25 points as their reward, with the values decreasing incrementally down to 17th place, with anyone finishing below that scoring nothing. There are points for finding eliminations though, so players will be on the lookout for enemies to wipe out and add to their tally.
