Polar Peak is breaking in Fortnite Battle Royale, sparking Dragon rumors

Fortnite Battle Royale might well have one whole quarter of its map dedicated to a snow biome, but it looks increasingly likely that it could all come to an end in Season 9 as Polar Peak has started to break. 

Epic Games decided to introduced a number of major changes to the gameplay of the popular battle royale title at the beginning of Season 7, by removing points of interest such as Flush Factory and Greasy Grove to make way for all new snow biome. 

However, their replacements – Polar Peak, Happy Hamlet and Frosty Flights – have since started to feel outdated, particularly the latter as X-4 Stormwing planes are no longer available as a form of transport. A runway without planes is no runway at all.

Following the v9.10 update being released, it doesn’t take good eyesight to see that Polar Peak now has a huge crack down the middle of the iceberg. With the surface looking particularly unstable, plus the rumbling sounds that players are hearing near the location, it looks set to fall sometime in the near future. 

Interestingly, footage captured by players also seems to suggest that there could be something trapped inside the ice that’s waiting to break free, as seen below. 

Dragons coming soon to Fortnite Season 9?

With so many dragon rumors circulating since Season 7 began, with eggs spotted nearby, there’s no doubt that those who still believe one will emerge from the ice will be excited by the possibility of it happening in Season 9. Though, it is a long shot. 

Whether or not the ice falling from the location would result in the entire snow biome being removed remains to be seen, but with rumors of Greasy Grove returning in a NEO style – much like the newly revamped Tilted Towers and Mega Mall locations – there’s a good chance that it could spell the end for the snow.

Fortnite’s Marvel-themed Season 4 takeover is almost winding down, but there’s still plenty of opportunities to grab some last-minute XP boosts with our guide on the Week 10 challenges.

Season 4 of Fortnite has seen tons of new content over the weeks. On top of the ample supply of cosmetic unlocks, Epic has deployed everything from new abilities to secret challenges.

With the ongoing storyline teasing major changes each passing update, time is of the essence to get everything done before we reached Season 5. Once the rare items are gone from the game, there’s no chance at claiming them anytime in the future.

So if you’re trying to make every minute count and get the most of your experience gains, weekly challenges are for you.

Things couldn’t be simpler this time around and we’ve got you covered with everything there is to know about the week 10 objectives.

You’ll need to prioritizing vehicles early on to tick the latest challenges off your list.

First up, all of the usual tasks are listed once again. You’ll need to search some chests, find some quick kills, and collect various resources. These can all be smashed out in the blink of an eye without any real difficulty.

Vehicles will be a big priority over the next few days as there are three unique challenges to tick off. One will have you racing from The Fortilla to The Authority in under four minutes. Meanwhile, the other simply asks you to stay in a vehicle for a long period of time and travel the map.

Arguably the most difficult of the vehicle-specific challenges, you’ll need to eliminate a few enemies with them. This means you may have to catch some opposing players by surprise. Be on the lookout for explosives that could end your run before it really begins.

You can blitz through a handful of these activities at the same time but others require a more focused effort. Below is the full list of challenges for the latest week in Fortnite.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 10 Challenges

  • Search Chests at Upstate New York
  • Eliminations at Lazy Lake
  • Collect Metal from Slurpy Swamp
  • Catch fish at Heart Lake
  • Eliminate opponents by hitting them with vehicles
  • Drive a boat from The Fortilla to The Authority in less than 4 minutes
  • Ride 20,000 meters in a vehicle
  • Deal damage to opponents at Sentinel Graveyard

Expect the Sentinel Graveyard to be a hot drop for the next week.

You’ve still got a few weeks left to finish up the Season 4 Battle Pass. Though you may want to start rushing through not only these weekly tasks, but the secret challenges too. 

Every scrap of XP will help as you look to unlock the final rewards in the Marvel-centric update.
