Week 9 of Fortnite’s Chapter 2, Season 1 is here, which means Epic Games are adding another set of brand-new Mission challenges for players to sink their teeth into. 

Anyone who has been playing Epic Games’ blockbuster battle royale title for a while will know that the developers ditched the old weekly challenge system they used to employ, instead switching to limited-time Missions at the start of Season 10. 

As usual, Battle Pass owners will have a new Mission added to their game on Thursday, December 5, bringing with it a number of new challenges that players can complete to earn XP and Battle Stars to rank up their pass and unlock cosmetic items.

Epic GamesFortnite players will need to hop in a Motorboat for the Chaos Rising challenges.

Unlike previous weeks which saw the Mission title hint at the challenges found inside, Week 9 is titled “Chaos Rising,” and sees players take on a variety of different challenges that don’t seem to follow any specific theme.

Players will be utilizing the game’s various movement tools such as Motorboats and Ziplines to rotate around the island, while players will also need to practice their skydiving at Steamy Stacks, where they need to make their way through a series of rings placed high in the sky.

Searching Chests and Ammo Boxes also plays a part in Chaos Rising, while players need to get up close and personal with opponents if they want to find three eliminations with shotguns, and three from within 5 meters. You can view all of the Chaos Rising Mission challenges below.

Fortnite Chapter 2, Week 9 Chaos Rising Mission challenges

Epic responds to concerns over leaked Fortnite player logins

Fortnite players have made big claims that Epic is leaking player logins through the battle royale’s in-game leaderboard. However, the developer has insisted the system is safe, and there’s been no evidence of hacked accounts through it.

Security scares are no joke, and while developers do their best to keep them underwraps, they can sometimes appear where you least expect them.

That’s what Fortnite pro Jonathan ‘Yung Calculator’ Weber was claiming after being mysteriously logged out of his account. The Built By Gamers player claimed Fortnite’s in-game leaderboards were leaking players’ private information, including email addresses.

People could then use these emails to either try and brute force hack accounts, or reset passwords and kick players out of the game.

“Guys, Epic Games’ infrastructure is so dogmeat that if you don’t have this turned off, people can find your email,” he said.

“That’s kind of bad on its own, but then if they have your email, they can send password resets to your account. That’s fine normally ⁠— on Twitter, it means nothing normally ⁠— but on Epic Games, it logs you out in-game.”

“This has happened to Clix, Nick Eh 30, Nate Hill ⁠— everyone. Epic Games has no idea what they’re doing. Their infrastructure is garbage. They need to change it ⁠— it’s disgraceful.”

However, people aren’t sold on Yung’s story. Fortnite dataminer ‘FNBRUnreleased’ has stated that it’s impossible. Epic’s API doesn’t allow for the sharing of information like Yung and others think.

“It is not possible to view the email of another person’s Epic [account]. Epic’s API does not work like that. I’ve been seeing this rumor from [Yung Calculator] spreading false information,” they claimed.

FNBRUnreleased’s standpoint has been backed up by Epic. The developer published a statement in response to Yung’s claims, saying leaderboards do not leak any players’ secure information.

“We investigated reports that leaderboards were divulging non-public information or causing unauthorized logouts. This is not the case.

“We are certain that affected accounts remain secure, player info (incl. email addresses) isn’t being divulged & any logout issue is resolved.”

For now, players should just always make sure their passwords are strong to best protect against any leak. Plus, turn on two-factor authentication if you can.
