Fortnite Battle Royale players looking to bump up some levels on their Chapter 2, Season 1 Battle Pass are going to need to find the location of ‘R’ in the game. If you would like to know where it is, you’ve came to the right place. 

Seasoned veterans of the popular battle royale game might have been surprised to know that hidden battle stars and banners had been removed with the game’s latest major update, although they have simply been replaced by different letters of the word ‘Fortnite’ instead. 

One letter has been hidden in each loading screen since the season began and now, for Week 3, it’s going to be an ‘R’ that you’re looking for. 

Epic GamesThe letter R is definitely at Slurpy Swamp and we’re going to show you exactly where to find it.

This week’s loading screen is based on Slurpy Swamp, a location that’s actually been having its fair share of issues since the season began. There was a minor problem – which has since been resolved – preventing players from receiving shield boosts by destroying slurpy barrels at one stage. 

In order to unlock the screen graphic above, players will have had to complete at least eight challenges from the Forged in Slurp Mission – as listed below.

Full list of Forged in Slurp Mission challenges

  • Search Chests at Slurpy Swamp or Retail Row (x7)
  • Eliminate opponents with a weapon of each rarity (x1)
  • Upgrade an item at a Weapon Upgrade Bench (x3)
  • Dance at Compact Cars, Lockie’s Lighthouse and a Weather Station (x1)
  • Deal Damage with Common weapons (x500)
  • Mark an Uncommon, Rare and Epic Item (x1)
  • Eliminate opponents at EGO outposts or Retail Row (x3)
  • Search Supply Drops in different matches (x250)
  • Deal Damage with Legendary weapons (x250)

Epic gamesFortnite’s letter R can be seen clearly here.

Just to the right of the middle, you can see that the R in the loading screen. That’s where you will need to go in order to collect the latest letter.

If the incentive of leveling up your Battle Pass isn’t enough of an incentive to collect all of these hidden letters, there’s also a mystery skin connected to the challenges. By finding them all, you will be given the fresh outfit for free at the end of the season.

NickEh30’s latest Fortnite tournament was quite a spectacle, but it was tainted by an alleged stream sniper, who was reported and subsequently banned despite maintaining his innocence.

Nick ‘NickEh30’ Amyoony has been hosting a series of Fortnite tournaments in recent months. The latest one was the NickEh30 Cup. It gave players a chance to compete against some of the game’s biggest names in the scene for a chance to win $10,000.  

It was all positive for the most part. A lesser-known professional Fortnite player named  Crumble managed to impress and take home the prize. However, the tournament was marred with some unfortunate stream sniping drama.

NickEh30 Fortnite stream sniping ban

In the final match, several other players landed on NickEh30, including a Twitch streamer named ArchieFN. He eliminated NickEh30 and danced on his body for the better part of 30 seconds.

NickEh30 was less than impressed and looked disappointed and deflated on stream. It was a stark contrast to his usual upbeat and positive vibe. He was convinced ArchieFN was stream sniping and hopped into the replay mode to report him and a few others.

Fortunately, Epic Games responded almost instantly and banned ArchieFN for 24 hours as soon as he returned to the lobby. You can watch a full recap of the incident below and form your own opinion.

However, ArchieFN is maintaining his innocence. He claimed he wasn’t stream sniping at all. Instead, he said he wanted to “contest someone who wasn’t a tier-one pro” and decided to land on NickEh30 after seeing him land in the same spot during a previous game.

Still, he apologized for what he did and acknowledged that some might find it “scummy.” Sadly, that didn’t stop him from copping a bit of abuse, some of which was needless and extreme.

“Why am I waking up to 600 DMs telling me to kill myself?” he said. “I’m 20, and it doesn’t bother me at all, but the majority of the community is quite younger … you really need to think about what you’re saying to people on the internet.”

In the end, ArchieFN’s Fortnite ban won’t last more than a day. It isn’t too long to wait if he’s innocent, but it’s enough for a wake-up call if he’s guilty.

Either way, The NickEh30 was a success despite the stream sniping drama, and a rightful victor was still crowned.
