As Fortnite Season 4 starts to wind down, there’s never been a better time to grind for experience as Epic Games is offering up new XP Xtravaganza challenges.

We’re already into the 11th week of Fortnite Season 4. We’ve seen tons of new skins, map changes, and weapons added throughout, but it’s all starting to wrap up. As the Nexus War comes to a head with Galactus plummeting towards the map, Season 5 is right around the corner.

With an expected launch date of November 30, that leaves just three full weeks of action left. Whether you’ve been playing every day this season or only just hopping in now, there’s still every reason to push for last-minute XP over these remaining weeks.

Unlocks in the Season 4 Battle Pass will be gone forever once we reach the next major update. Not to mention the rare foil skins will be locked away as well. Thankfully, XP gains are more plentiful now than any other week.

Fortnite’s rare Season 4 foil skins will be disappearing in a few weeks.

Alongside some sneaky challenges hidden in plain sight, Epic has introduced a handful of new objectives this week. Similar to previous seasons, the final few weeks come with a bonus effect. Formerly known as ‘Overtime challenges,’ Season 4 offers fresh ‘XP Xtravaganza’ challenges instead.

These are designed to help players catch up on late experience gains. There are five extremely simple tasks for you to get through. Once you’re done, a whopping 130,000 XP will be all yours.

Most of these can be ticked off without really trying. Dealing damage and using various abilities will come over time regardless of how you choose to play. One challenge in particular stands out, however.

You’ll need to visit every named location on the map in a single game. While this would prove near impossible in a regular battle royale lobby, this challenge can be knocked out in Team Rumble as well. Below is a full look at each of the XP Xtravaganza challenges this week.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 11 XP Xtravaganza Challenges

  • Deal damage with scoped weapons (500)
  • Use superpowers to eliminate opponents (1)
  • Use rifts (3)
  • Upgrade weapons to Uncommon rarity (4)
  • Visit all named locations in a single match (17)

You’ll need to travel across the entire map in a single lobby to get every scrap of XP this week.

With three weeks to go, it’s almost guaranteed that more XP-boosting challenges will be on the way. Season 5 will introduce all-new content as per usual, replacing the Season 4 Battle Pass in the process.

Make sure you get these done before the next weekly update in order to maximize your gains.

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.

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.
