The Hide and Seek challenges have been released in Fortnite Battle Royale, and we’ve got a comprehensive guide on how to complete them all.

Wednesday, November 13 marked the start of the sixth week in Fortnite Chapter 2: Season 1, and with it came a brand new set of challenges called Hide and Seek, confirming the leaks that had surfaced a week prior.

There are 11 challenges in total, but players need to only complete eight to unlock this week’s reward item – a brand new loading screen. However, you can always try and complete all 11 in order to get more XP that will help level up your Battle Pass.

  • Land at Frenzy Farms, Slurpy Swamp, Sweaty Sands (0/3)
  • Harvest 500 wood, 400 stone, 300 metal (0/3)
  • Eliminations at Frenzy Farms or Sweaty Sands (0/3)
  • Search chests at Pleasant Park or Lazy Lake (0/7)
  • Consume foraged items (0/10)
  • Deal damage to opponents with a pickaxe (0/100)
  • Hit 5 consecutive weak spots while harvesting (0/1)
  • Hit headshots (0/10)
  • Visit landmarks in a single match (0/5)
  • Eliminations in different matches (0/5)
  • Search the hidden “I” found in the Hide and Seek screen (0/1)

Most of these objectives are pretty straightforward and self-explanatory, and some can even be completed together, such as the ones that require you to land at a certain location, and also get eliminations there.

For example, you can land at Frenzy Farms and get three eliminations there while hitting several headshots, giving you progress towards four different challenges (#1, 3, 8, and 10).

You could even throw in a couple of swings with your pickaxe, and deal damage to enemies to help with the sixth challenge as well.

That said, there are a few objectives that would be a lot easier to complete with some beforehand knowledge, such as exact chest locations in Pleasant Park and Lazy Lake, where to find Landmarks, and more.

You can find some helpful info about these challenges below, along with any maps and/or visuals that will help you check them off faster.

Search 7 chests at Pleasant Park or Lazy Lake

This one’s pretty straightforward in terms of what needs to be done, but because 100% of regular chests now spawn in Chapter 2, we can know exactly where every single one is located on the map.

There are 18 chests at Pleasant Park and 24 at Lazy Lake, so you probably stand a better chance at completing this challenge all in one go if you land at the latter.

Consume 10 Foraged Items

For those who are unfamiliar with the term, foraged items in Fortnite are basically any food located on the map that can be consumed for some sort of effect. In Chapter 2, the pool of these items has been limited down to just mushrooms.

The best places to look for mushrooms on the new map are the jungle and swamp areas, so Slurpy Swamp and Weeping Woods would be good places to start. Keep in mind that you can only consume mushrooms if you have space to increase your shield, so don’t start looking for them with already a maxed out shield bar.

Visit 5 Landmarks in a single match

Landmarks are basically anything on the map that aren’t part of the regular terrain, such as campsites, outposts, monuments, and even stuff from Chapter 1.

While five may seem like a lot to have to visit in a single match, there are so many of them throughout the map that they’re actually pretty easy to get to in quick succession.

In total, there are approximately 30 Landmarks, and a good place to find several of them close together is the snowy mountain range on the bottom right corner of the map, just south of Retail Row, and landing there should make it easiest to visit five as quickly as possible.

Search the hidden “I” found in the Hide and Seek Loading Screen

Funnily enough, this is the only challenge in this week’s list that technically can’t be completed until the loading screen is unlocked, which means eight other objectives have to be met first.

We’ve taken the liberty of assembling an in-depth guide for you on how to find this hidden ‘I’ once you do complete those eight other challenges, if you don’t want to attempt this all on your own.

How to watch Fortnite’s Galactus event: Start time, leaks, location, more

Fortnite’s hotly-anticipated Galactus event, coming soon as the Season 4 finale, is the talk of the town; from when the Marvel character will make his mark, to how you can watch it in-game, here’s everything you need to know.

A bright object in the sky has begun hurtling towards the Fortnite map, and thanks to datamining and logic, it seems only reasonable to suggest that Galactus is on his way to cause destruction.

Similar to the devastation caused by the Season 1 meteor, you would have to think that his intentions are not good. It seems we’re gearing up for a massive battle featuring every Marvel character currently in the game.

The original Fortnite meteor was first spotted a month and a half before it landed – destroying Dusty Depot – and the same type of impact appears to be on the horizon.

Fortnite Galactus event start date and time

Such is the hype surrounding the appearance of Galactus that he’s taken an incredibly long time to appear. However, his arrival is finally set in stone.

The Nexus War finale event is a one-time spectacle set to kick off on Tuesday, December 1 at 4 PM ET | 1 PM PT | 9 PM GMT.

Some leaks of the upcoming event have made their way to the internet which depicts Thor, She-Hulk, Wolverine, and Iron Man offering themselves as soldiers to fight Galactus.

Fighting Galactus to end the Nexus War will be a one-time event. No replays for this historic battle.

Galactus Fortnite event leaks

The event itself could see the superheroes taking on Galactus in the form of a raid. Or you could possibly have Galactus taking on the whole lobby, or a Thanos-inspired mode akin to Chapter 1.

Galactus is officially listed as being 28ft tall and that in itself could offer some interesting gameplay options. Given that this will close out a season-long Nexus War, there’s a good chance you’ll have a ton of manual input here. So expect to help the heroes in their fight.

First look at Galactus

With the use of one of the game’s sniper rifles, it’s possible for players to look through the scope, at the object in the sky, and spy him. He’s obviously been getting closer and closer over the season, but thanks to new leaks, we’ve got a better look at the figure than ever before.

It turns out there’s actually a standard sized Galactus skin in the game’s files. Perhaps we’ll be able to run around as the Devourer of Worlds after the event. Only time will tell.

Here are some datamined images of Galactus’ model, too.

The main rumor concerning Phase 4 of the MCU is that Galactus will indeed be the archetypal villain of the main films. The Devourer of Worlds quite literally does what he says on the tin, and his power is unmatched.

The Fortnite tie-in will be a great way to introduce casual fans to the presence of one of the universe’s most powerful, cosmic entities.

We’ve also got a look at where Galactus is. It seems he’s positioned right about the ruins POI in-game from this screenshot from Fortnite leaker, Fevers.

Rising Out of the Water

ShiinaBR also tweeted on November 22, 2020 that Galactus has slowly begun to rise out of the water. We’ll make sure to update this article when we have a better look at this.

Lazing Device

On November 4, Fortnite data miner Mang0e tweeted about a mysterious new weapon in the works. Hardly anything is known about what this ‘Lazing Device’ is. However, Mang0e believes it could perhaps be a prototype for the upcoming Cosmos rifle.

Its base stats are that of the Bolt Sniper Rifle, which is the same as the Cosmos ones, too. Mang0e goes on to say in their Twitter thread that this is all speculation, however, but rebuffs his claims by saying that they were right about the Slurp Bazooka in the past.
