Brand new challenges have arrived in Fortnite’s 12.60 update. Here’s an overview of the Storm The Agency challenges and the rewards you’ll get upon completion.

Epic Games continues to push Fortnite’s in-game narrative ahead as the battle royale gets set for its major Season 3 update.

The latest batch of challenges in v12.60 will land you 120,000XP along with three brand new unlocks. Here’s everything you need to know to complete the new Storm The Agency challenges in Fortnite.

Five objectives are tied to the latest batch of challenges. As usual, players will be trekking all across the map in order to complete them.

To net your first 40,000XP all you have to do is land at The Agency. Be prepared for dozens of enemies to drop at this hotspot as everyone else looks to complete the challenge as well.

Hatches play an important role in the latest challenges.

Next up, Storm The Agency challenges require players to survive 10 Storm Circles. This should be simple enough for players of any skill to complete across a handful of games without really trying.

The third challenge will award a brand new ‘Steel Shadow’ pickaxe in place of experience. To unlock the rare item, you’ll have to open three faction locked chests at different Spy Bases across the map.

Swimming over a single hatch at The Agency will net your last 40,000XP, while taking down three Henchmen at different Safe Houses will provide a new Icon. Once all five challenges are complete, the ‘Shadow Stalker’ Glider will be unlocked.

These tasks will only take a few games at most and reward a ton of XP. They should come in handy for anyone looking to complete their battle pass progression as the season begins to wind down.

There’s no telling just where the storyline is headed as Season 3 comes around, though Midas and his Doomsday Device certainly seem to be playing a big role.

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.
