The first season of Fortnite‘s Chapter 2 is rapidly approaching its end, but fans of the popular battle royale title still have some new challenges to take on, and rewards to earn, with the Remedy vs Toxin Mission that goes live on January 9.

Epic Games add a brand-new Mission on Thursdays, packed full of tasks for players to complete to earn XP bonuses and rank up their Battle Pass. There are also some cool cosmetic rewards to help characters stand out from the crowd when jumping out of the Battle Bus.

While Missions took a back seat over the festive period, replaced by the Winterfest event as Epic Games and their staff took a break, 2020 is here and that means the Remedy vs Toxin Mission is here, going live on all platforms on Thursday, January 9.

Epic GamesFortnite’s Remedy vs Toxin Mission is here following the Winterfest event.

The Remedy vs Toxin Mission is a mixed bag, with no specific theme laid out by the challenges for players to follow. That doesn’t mean they’ll be easy or straight-forward though, with some of the challenges set to test players’ gun skills, and their knowledge of the map as well.

Battle royale entrants will need to visit three different food trucks that have been placed around the island, and will also need to head to three bus stops that are found along the roads and lanes of the island for another of the Mission’s tasks. Your knowledge of Landmarks, recognizable locations that aren’t named on the map, will also be important, as you need to head to these areas and open seven Chests.

You’ll need to be precise with your aim as well this week as finding three eliminations with the SMG, dealing damage with Common, Uncommon, and Rare Weapons in a single match, and achieving Weapon Specialist Accolades are all on the menu for those who hope to reap the rewards of the Remedy vs Toxin Mission.

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 1 Remedy vs Toxin Mission challenges

  • Stage 1 of 2: Reach Battle Pass Tier 40
  • Stage 2 of 2: Complete ‘Remedy vs. Toxin’ Mission Objectives
  • Visit 3 different Food Trucks
  • Earn 3 Silver Survivor Medals
  • SMG Eliminations (x3)
  • Search 7 chests at Landmarks
  • Reach 100 of both Health and Shield in 3 different matches
  • Deal damage with a Common, Uncommon and Rare weapon in a single match (x3)
  • Deal 2500 damage to enemy structures
  • Visit 3 different bus stops in a single match
  • Achieve weapon specialist accolades by dealing damage with 5 weapons
  • Be the first to catch a fish, first to land from the Battle Bus, or first to get an elimination

The tasks may be difficult, but the rewards are worth it for those who take them on. Each challenge offers a reward of 52,000 XP, which will help you quickly rank up, and help you unlock new tiers of the Season 1 Battle Pass, giving players an opportunity to unlock more cosmetics before the season ends in February.

Completing nine of the tasks will also unlock a new skin, with a special purple version of the Remedy character offered to those who grind their way through the Mission.

Epic GamesPlayers can unlock the Remedy vs Toxin skin as a reward.

There is one catch though, as players must be Tier 40 on the Battle Pass before they take these challenges on. So, if you haven’t been grinding your way up the ranks this season, you’ll need to do a little bit of work before you can unlock the special purple edition of Remedy.


Did The Rock just tease he’s getting a Fortnite skin?

After an appearance by a very cartoony-looking float during the Macy’s Thanksgivings Day Parade, The Rock hinted that he may end up getting a skin in the popular battle royale game Fortnite, although he’s being a bit vague. 

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade floats are known their pop culture references. Between Pikachu, Goku, and others making appearances, it shouldn’t really come as a surprise that one based on the popular young Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson meme a few years back would make its way into the 2020 version of the parade.

Seemingly because it’s a float, the giant balloon itself seems to be a cartoon representation of the meme, rather than a hyper-realistic one. After one person seemed to point out that it looks a bit like a Fortnite skin, the former wrestler now actor responded in a way that’s raising a few eyebrows.

In response to the comment about his float looking like a Fortnite character, The Rock simply responded with “way ahead of you” and “great minds”. This obviously caused a few people to pause and ask themselves if he just hinted at a Fortnite skin.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any official comment from Epic but the comment is certainly suspicious. While one could make the argument that The Rock was saying that he also had the same thought before the original tweeter, the wink face emoji seen after the tweet is a bit peculiar. Surely he would know not to put that kind of statement out with that emoji unless he meant to hint at it, right?

It’s also a bit odd that he also responded to someone who tweeted that they “shouldn’t give them any ideas”, meaning he could have been totally knowledgable in what he’s doing.

His inclusion in the game also wouldn’t be surprising. Fortnite is known for its crossovers at this point, even allowing for some Icon Series skins based on celebrities like Ninja and others. It could also be a part of a larger WWE crossover, considering there’s a plethora of characters there to make skins out of.

Still, until nothing official is announced, take this with a massive grain of salt. Here’s hoping that if it is real that it will get announced soon, however.
