One of the challenges for Week 6 of Season 5 in Fortnite Battle Royale to complete various time trials around the map.

The community initially expected these challenges to be related to the race track but it turns out that the time trials actually involve finding a hologram of a stopwatch in various locations.

Once you find a stopwatch you’ll need to activate it – this will cause more markers to appear and you’ll need to jump and build your way to each one before time runs out.

Each time trial requires you to reach eight markers in total, and a total of five trials need to completed to finish the challenge. All of the known time trial locations can be seen on the map below:

This is one of the most difficult challenges we have seen in Fortnite Battle Royale so far and some players are finding it easier to build their structures before activating the trials if they cannot build quickly enough on the first attempt.

With so many checkpoints to reach in each time trial, do not expect to complete all five trials in one match!

We would advise you to take a look around each location before beginning a trial as they are sure to make for perfect ambush spots.

Ali-A reveals unreleased Fortnite skin haunting Weeping Woods

Popular Fortnite YouTuber Ali-A has shown that the previously leaked Madcap skin looks to be coming soon as a mobile glitch has revealed a strange character ‘haunting’ Weeping Woods. 

Across the different Fortnite seasons and updates, Epic Games have released a vast amount of cosmetics – with fans picking out their favorites and donning them in-game. 

Typically, these skins are leaked ahead of time as leakers are able to decrypt games files that are added to the mix with each new update and patch. Some of these skins never see the light of day, or are held back for quite a while, despite being leaked following a patch. 

One of the skins that falls into this category is the Madcap – a glowing, purple, Mushroom-themed skin. It was leaked quite a while back, and while it hasn’t been available just yet, it looks like it will be pretty soon.

Each new Fortnite update leaks a whole host of skins.

Popular YouTuber Ali-A pointed out that some Fortnite mobile players on Android had spotted the outline of a skin sitting around in Weeping Woods. 

The character that seems to be ‘haunting’ the POI, is stood under a tree with their arms crossed. However, it’s not colorful. Instead, it’s a blacked-out silhouette – almost as if it’s going to be added soon, but is showing up as a visual glitch in-game. 

Ali-A noted that the character is most definitely Madcap because of the shape of the head, and given that he’s hanging around Weeping Woods, there might be a challenge or quest line involved with unlocking the skin.

Even though the YouTuber’s speculation seems pretty spot on, there’s no telling if he’s right just yet because Epic Games hasn’t announced anything. 

It could very well be that, as Fortnitemares unfolds, the skin will finally be available through the item shop and there are also challenges in Weeping Woods to unlock skin styles. Though, we’ll just have to wait and see.
