Following the release of Fortnite’s new season on June 17, the brand new Week 2 challenges have gone live on June 25, offering players a host of tasks to rank up their battle passes.
Fortnite Chapter Two’s third season finally went live on June 17, following multiple delays. This plunged the map underwater and brought with it a whole host of changes, including a new battle pass for players to rank up.
Part of this ranking up process is the release of weekly challenges that players can complete in game, in exchange for XP rewards. The next set – Week 2 of Season 3 – went live on June 25 and, thankfully, they leaked ahead of time.
The new Fortnite season has brought plenty of changes.
For Season 3, Epic are releasing 7 challenges every week, each offering 35,000 XP as a reward for completion. This works out at 245,000 XP on offer every single week.
Thankfully, as has become fairly standard in the Fortnite community, the challenges have been data-mined ahead of time, meaning players were able to prepare for the challenges and complete them as fast as possible when they launched in game.
The tasks are fairly simple, with most involving players simply visiting a location and completing a straightforward task. Each challenge should only take sensible players a game or two to complete.
Fortnite Chapter 2: Season 3, Week 2 Challenges
Use different Ziplines at The Authority (x8)
Search Chests or Ammo Boxes at Holly Hedges (x7)
Find Deadpool floaties at The Yacht (x3)
Score a goal on the soccer pitch at Pleasant Park (x1)
Eliminations at Lazy Lake (x3)
Headshot Henchmen at The Fortilla (x20)
Gather or Consume Foraged Items at The Orchard (x5)
The weekly tasks compliment the host of content brought by Season 3’s launch. Many players, for example, will still be pining for the brand new Aquaman skin, which dropped alongside the game’s flooded map.
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.
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.
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.
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.
New Weapon in the works: "Lazing Device"
It's WID is all over the place, but I suspect this *could* be a prototype of the upcoming Cosmos (event and/or Galactus) rifle.
It uses Base Bolt Sniper stats, same as the Cosmos ones. The name "Lazing" could also be connected to this. pic.twitter.com/GgVuOcYot8
