Fortnite has introduced another set of Marvel-themed changes to the Season 4 map with the v14.10 update, including a new Stark Industries point-of-interest. Here’s a look at all of the latest map changes.

Fortnite has now released their first major update since the start of Season 4 and it has brought some massive map changes which align with their new Marvel theme.

While Epic Games has previously added small POI’s such as the Panther Prowl monument or Collector’s Museum across the map, the v14.10 changes are by far the biggest, with the Stark Industries POI now available in-game.

Following the September 10 update, players will notice a giant chunk of land has appeared towards the North-Eastern side of the map, taking up a huge portion of the Fortnite island.

This bizarre circle marks the new Stark Industries POI, which could tie into Iron Man’s storyline during their fight against Galactus in the Nexus War.

Epic Games has also released a full trailer for the addition of the new POI, with a message of “discover your new powers” being shared with Fortnite fans.

 

With leaks and rumors surrounding future Mythic Items and superpowers, Epic could be teasing even more changes and abilities to come in the next updates.

The location itself is heavily guarded with “Stark Robot” Henchmen and even spawns a custom Iron Man car, outside of the front door, that doesn’t require any fuel to drive.

Stark Industries also features a brand new vault that can be opened after defeating the Iron Man boss and collecting his keycard.

Players can pick up Mythic weapons from the Superhero as well, with Iron Man’s Unibeam and Repulsor Gauntlets found in this new location.

While this point-of-interest was the only major one to be added in v14.10 patch, we will be sure to update you with any new changes as players explore the latest update.

After a recent update introducing a change to Fortnite’s NFL skins, Epic Games is giving players the chance to return them for a limited time, and we have all the info on how to do so.

Fortnite’s v14.30 update brought a change to the game’s NFL skins, removing the name and logo for the team formerly known as the Washington Redskins.

After years of public backlash, the team removed their nickname and are now officially called the “Washington Football Team” while they work on getting a new trademark.

In-game, the team has been removed from the available options in their line of NFL skins. Now, when you visit the customization tab, Washington will be the last option with no logo. With this change, Epic is allowing players to return their purchase for a limited time – without using a refund token.

Washington’s NFL Fortnite skin will be this instead.

But this exchange isn’t as straightforward as you might think, and has led to some confusion amongst players trying to figure out how to do it.

Players who still have refund tokens should be able to navigate to the proper tab by going to Settings > Profile (far right) > Lifetime Return Requests > Submit a Request. There, you should see the NFL outfit listed as one of the items eligible for returns.

But, if you’ve already used all of your refund tokens, the “Submit a Request” Button won’t’ be active. Another problem you may run into is that your game didn’t update right away, making the NFL skin not show up as a return option – until it does update at least.

The good is that a fix for this is very simple: all you need to do is play a game or enter and leave Creative Mode. After that, you’ll see the prompt shown below and will be able to navigate to the Settings tab and issue a refund.

This prompt should let you return your NFL skin even with no tokens.

While the NFL skins were a fun addition to Fortnite for a lot of gamers, some players have found that they don’t use these skins as much as they did when they first came out. Trading one of these in will net you 1,500 V-Bucks as well, which could almost seem like an extra payday if you bought the skin a year or two ago.

Now that you’ve got an extra 1,500 V-Bucks burning a hole in your pocket, you can save them for later, or use them for one of the new skins that were leaked in the v14.30 update.
