Another new challenge for Fortnite Battle Royale’s special Downtown Drop LTM has released, tasking players to find two hidden shortcuts as they zoom around the map.

The Downtown Drop LTM, which was created in conjunction with legendary sneaker brand Jordan, sees players zooming around a custom-built map collecting coins.

Included in the LTM are a number of challenges that unlock special rewards for players, and another of those tasks went live on May 27, asking players to find two shortcuts somewhere on the map.

Epic GamesJordan’s collaboration introduced the Downtown Drop LTM.

While this challenge might sound difficult, it’s actually surprisingly simple, especially if you know what you are looking for.

The term “hidden shortcuts” might sound like these passages are difficult to find, but they are scattered fairly obviously over the Downtown Drop map, so using one to cut out portions of the map shouldn’t turn out to be too difficult.

The shortcuts take the form of holes or stairwalls that have been cut into the game’s map, and are found in numerous locations around the Downtown Drop map.

Epic GamesPlayers will need to lookout for tunnels or stairwells.

If you’re still struggling to find the hidden shortcuts, this useful YouTube video should show you exactly what you’re looking for as you attempt to complete the challenge.

The “Find hidden shortcuts” challenge isn’t the only task in the Downtown Drop LTM, and if you’re having a hard time completing them, our handy challenge guide will help you knock out a few of them in less than five minutes.

The Jordan collaboration in Fortnite Battle Royale also offers players two new skins named Grind and Clutch, with both characters wearing a pair of the iconic Jordan 1 shoes that have been a staple of sneaker culture for years.

The Downtown Drop LTM is live now, but there is no official end date as of yet, so make sure you get all the challenges completed before Epic Games removes it, and the back bling rewards, for good.

Fortnite Season 5 is upon us, and it’s got some very exciting things in store – but the one thing fans are most looking forward to is the leaked crossover with The Mandalorian.

Following the success of Season 4’s Nexus War, which introduced skins and weapons based on some of Marvel’s most beloved superheroes and villains including Storm and Venom, Fortnite seems to be once again teaming up with another Disney-owned franchise, Star Wars.

Recent posts from a number of leakers including ShiinaBR and others have suggested a crossover with The Mandalorian is imminent, with bounty hunter Din Djarin and the adorable viral sensation Baby Yoda both being a part of the major Season 5 update.

There’s even been a leaked advertisement for the Battle Pass, which shows off the incoming Mandalorian skin accompanied by a little Baby Yoda, which is presumed to be another Back Bling cosmetic like Rocket Racoon, from Guardians of the Galaxy.

We won’t know exactly how to unlock the new Mandalorian secret skin and accompanying Baby Yoda Back Bling cosmetic until Season 5 drops on December 2, but we can definitely speculate.

In previous seasons, featured skins have been unlocked when players complete Battle Pass challenges. It’s likely that The Mandalorian skin will be acquired through a similar unlock method. It will look something like this:

  1. Load up Fortnite Battle Royale.
  2. Head into the Battle Pass menu.
  3. Access the Battle Pass challenges screen, and wait for the relevant challenges to appear.
  4. Once they’ve been made available, it’s down to you to complete them.

We’ll update this page as soon as we know how to unlock these new cosmetics, so keep an eye out.

When does Fortnite Season 5 start?

Fortnite has a lot to live up to after Season 4. It saw the introduction of a number of Marvel heroes as well as the Devourer of Worlds, Galactus, for an epic Nexus War finale event.

Season 5 will kick off on December 2, although an exact time hasn’t been confirmed. It’s also been hinted by dataminers that there will be another Black Hole style blackout to bridge the gap between the end of Season 4 and the beginning of Season 5.

It’s not expected that the whole season will be themed around The Mandalorian, unlike the previous Marvel-focused Season 4, but it looks like it will likely feature enough Star Wars content to keep fans of the galaxy far, far away happy.

Season 5 also brings with it the arrival of the new Fortnite Crew membership, which includes the Battle Pass, V-Bucks, exclusive skins, and other monthly benefits for a set price.

We will continue to update this guide as new information becomes available.
