The second official teaser for Fortnite Season 10 has been released by Epic Games – hinting that The Visitor could be making a return the map, with an army of robots that could cause havoc.

After the conclusion of the $30m World Cup in New York – where three players were crowned the first ever Fortnite World Champions – all attention has turned to the next season which is set to release in the coming days.

At the event, Epic revealed the first teaser image for the upcoming season – which hinted that popular location Dusty Depot would be making a return to the map following it’s destruction by the meteor in Season 4.

Epic Games release second official Fortnite 10 teaser

On Monday 29 July, Epic Games released the second official teaser image, showing a large robotic figure with some heavy weaponry on each arm.

Fortnite tweeted: “Look Forward.”

Will The Visitor return to Fortnite?

The second official teaser has added a brand new twist to the Season 10 theories – seemingly contradicting rumors that the map could be set to reverted back to a former state.

Eagle-eyed fans were able to spot the logo on the left of the image is exactly the same as the logo featured on the arm of The Visitor – a character who was prominent during Season 4. 

The Visitor is believed to have stumbled across the Fortnite map as a ‘time traveller’, creating rifts in Season 5 which were his method of returning home. However, the latest teaser suggests he has unfinished business and will make an epic return with an army of robots judging by the mysterious character in the image.

The second teaser hints at a futuristic twist.

Fortnite Season 10 – what we know so far

The first leak for Season 10 came via the PlayStation store, which showed the iconic Fortnite Battle Bus in front of a ‘X’. As the number ten is written as an ‘X’ in Roman numerals, fans instantly connected the dots.

With the first official teaser now confirming the image was legitimate, rumors continue to swirl over what it could mean, given it would be the first ever Fortnite season to not be given an actual number.

As the orb at Loot Lake, the location of all the previously vaulted items, is becoming increasingly unstable, there had been suggestions that the vault could be cracked upon, catapulting the Fortnite map back in time. However, the latest image suggests futuristic items will also be present, given the robot has some pretty heavy weaponry on it’s body.

We are expecting teasers to continue in the build up to the new season which will officially release on Thursday August 1.

Why Fortnite players want “trash” vehicle challenges removed

Fortnite players are getting frustrated with vehicle challenges, with some of them asking Epic Games to remove them from the popular battle royale entirely – here’s why.

Vehicles have become a staple of Fortnite, and The Island wouldn’t be the same without them. Whether you want to cruise the roads in a car, take to the waters in a motorboat, or even zoom around the skies in a plane, you can do that (unless they get vaulted, that is).

But while they may be fun to ride, they’re not necessarily going to help you win; there’s no respawning in Fortnite’s battle royale mode, so driving a noisy vehicle that will get the attention of all your opponents isn’t always the best idea.

Despite this, vehicles often feature in the game’s challenges, which are essential to earn that all-important XP to help level up the Battle Pass – and it’s something players are getting frustrated with.

Most recently, the Season 5 Week 7 legendary challenge requires players to ‘Damage Opponents in Vehicles’, with quite a few tiers to tick off. Completing this challenge in full requires a total of 2,500 damage to opponents in vehicles, which is no easy task.

In a Reddit thread titled “Can we stop with the vehicle challenges please?” several Fortnite players have left comments airing their frustration about the constant vehicle-based quests and how hard they are to finish.

“The vehicle challenges are absolute trash,” wrote one player, while another added: “The game’s just becoming more and more of a grind, the legendary challenges have been a joke this season.”

The main problem people seem to have with vehicle challenges is that once they go live, no one wants to drive as they’ll become a target for other players wanting to complete the challenge. As a result, you have 100 players waiting to damage vehicles, and no one actually driving them.

Besides this frustration, other players have argued that there aren’t enough vehicles located around the map to be able to complete the challenge in the first place, and to make matters worse, there are no vehicle-based LTMs to get easy damage in either.

Players are calling for vehicle challenges to be removed from Fortnite.

“Just this challenge existing means people are not going to drive vehicles as much because everyone is going to be waiting for someone else to get in a vehicle so that they can shoot them,” wrote one player.

Another added: “I thought the mission was to deal damage WHILE riding in a vehicle. But since it’s to deal damage TO people in a vehicle, I’m thinking ‘Who the hell would make themselves a target like that?'”

A third pointed out that many vehicles are riddled with bugs and glitches, which makes having to use them even more frustrating: “No one’s riding in them unless they have to because they’re really buggy currently.”

Whether Epic will take heed of these concerns remains to be seen, although it seems unlikely right now.

They did recently promise to ‘look into’ claims that the customizable superhero skin was “unfair” and effectively “pay-to-win” as it allowed players to hide at night, so they are definitely listening when needed.
