Epic Games and 2K have announced a special collaboration ahead of the release of Fortnite character.

Fans of the popular battle royale title will know that the southeast corner of the island has turned into Pandora from the Borderlands franchise, with players who step into the area taking on a more comic-themed style based on the graphics of 2K’s legendary game.

Fans were also able to purchase the Psycho Bundle of cosmetic items from the in-game store, and while it’s no longer available for purchase, you can still get your hands on a new skin, backbling and harvesting tool for free.

How to get the Fortnite Psycho Bundle for free

Thanks to the partnership between Epic Games and 2K, anyone who would like to get the Psycho Bundle simply needs to purchase Borderlands 3 when it officially releases on Friday, September 13 worldwide. Pre-orders will also reward players with the bundle.

Once you have purchased any version of the game between its launch date and December 31, 2020 will have the bundle automatically added to their Fortnite account, ready to use whenever you feel like it.

You also have over a year to connect the two accounts, so no excuse for missing out on some free cosmetic items. 

If you purchase Borderlands 3 on Xbox One or PS4, you’ll have to make sure your account is linked to an Epic Games account for the bundle.

What’s in the Fortnite Psycho Bundle?

Players who unlock their free bundle will receieve three items courtesy of the developers, including the Psycho skin based on Borderlands’ main character.

You’ll also receive a special CL4PTR4P back bling, and a brand-new pickaxe for your troubles.

Fortnite players will get three Borderlands-themed items in the Psycho Bundle.

What if I’ve already purchased the Fortnite Psycho Bundle?

If you have already spent your hard-earned V-Bucks on the pack, but intend to get Borderlands 3 too, the good news is that you haven’t missed out on a gift buy buying too early.

For those who bought the pack on release and also grab themselves a copy of Borderlands 3, you will have 2,000 V-Bucks debited directly into your Fortnite account, essentially refunding the cost of the pack to you, and letting you buy other items from the store.

How to open chests in Upstate New York for Fortnite Week 10 challenges

The tenth week of Fortnite’s Season 4 has arrived, and with a new set of weekly challenges comes one task that asks players to open chests in Upstate New York. While this may sound confusing, here’s everything you need to make this challenge simple. 

Fortnitemares has officially arrived, with Midas reappearing for the first time since his Device experiment backfired badly, flooding the entire island at the end of Season Two. Midas has regained control of The Agency, and his army of Shadow Henchmen are ready to cause chaos.

Of course, the overarching Season 4 storyline is all about superheroes, with Marvel characters invading the island. The evil Galactus is on his way, and heroes like Tony Stark, Dr. Doom, and Wolverine have made Fortnite their home as they prepare for battle.

With these characters, new POIs and locations have appeared, and to complete this specific challenge you’ll need to head to Upstate New York. While this may sound like a strange request, it actually exists as a landmark inside the game. If you aren’t sure where to find it though, we’ve got everything you need to complete this task.

When Stark Industries arrived in Fortnite Season 4, you may have noticed that the POI is located inside what appears to be a massive bubble, which covers a large portion of the north-east corner of the island. It’s easy to spot, as the area is marked on the map for you, and the trees inside it are lovely shades of yellow and orange, compared to the normal green trees elsewhere.

Fans of Marvel Cinematic Universe will know that Stark calls New York his home, with the Stark Industries tower planted in the middle of New York City. Even the Avengers base in later films is located in Upstate New York. It shouldn’t come as a huge surprise then that his location in Fortnite was originally planted in the state of New York, which has now been transported to the island.

Thankfully, once you know where Upstate New York is, it’s easy to complete this Week 10 challenge, as all you need to do is open seven chests inside this landmark. They don’t even have to be opened in the same match, so just pick them up as you see them and you’ll finish this task eventually. If you’re still not sure where to go, we’ve included an image below.

It may take a couple of visits to Upstate New York to finish off this task, as there will be plenty of other people attempting it too. While Stark Industries has the most chests, it may be easier to head to some of the smaller buildings located in the zone, as they will be quieter and make you less likely to face enemies.

It’s well worth completing this task if you’re ranking up your Season 4 Battle Pass, as this offers a massive 25,000 XP reward, which will help you unlock new skins and cosmetic items.
