Fortnite YouTuber Marksman Pulls Off Insane Grappler and Guided Missile Win – But His Opponent Wasn’t Impressed

Popular YouTuber and streamer Marksman used the new grappler in combination with the guided missile to win a 1v1 on Fortnite and get the victory royale – but his opponent wasn’t impressed at all.

Fortnite players can now channel their inner Spider-man with the new grappler gun, allowing you to latch on to surfaces and spring forwards.

However, as Marksman demonstrates, it’s not just surfaces that the hook can latch onto, but also the guided missile.

In an audacious move, Marksman, who was in a final 1v1 to win the match, fires his guided missile before managing to hook himself on – not once, but twice – with the grappler.

He immediately drops down on his opponent and hits them hard with the double barrel shotgun, then almost messes it all up by switching weapons, but thankfully got the second shot off in time.

However, his opponent, who was streaming too, ‘ItsAllHill’, was less than impressed, simply calling it “trash”. In fairness, it was difficult to see what Marksman had done from his perspective.

The grappler has provided many great plays already, including this one from top Fortnite streamer Ninja, and oddly coincides with the release of Spider-Man on PS4.

Using the grappler in combination with the guided missile is a new one though, and opens up lots more possibilities, beyond just walls and builds.

But you have to be careful, because using the grappler doesn’t protect you from fall damage, so go to high and you’ll eliminate yourself upon landing.


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.
