Popular YouTuber Jordan ‘LEGIQN’ Payton will be part of the official broadcast team for this week’s Friday Fortnite tournament.

He will join Twitch streamer Ally ‘AllysGotGame’ and esports commentator Taylor ‘Reflections II’ on the UMG Events live-stream of the $20,000 celebrity Fortnite tournament.

Friday Fortnite is a double elimination tournament that is hosted by YouTuber and ‘DramaAlert’ host Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem and UMG.

Set to take place on May 25th, the third running of the competition will feature some of the biggest names of the online gaming/content creation community, including the likes of Twitch streamer ‘Ninja’ and YouTuber ‘RomanAtwood’, as well as popular Canadian rapper and singer Tory Lanez.

UMG Events, which apart from hosting the tournament, will also be live-streaming the individual streams of some of the big-name participants.

They announced that LEGIQN will be part of their broadcast team for Friday Fortnite #3 via a Twitter post on May 24th.

KEEMSTAR also took to Twitter to personally announce that the gaming entertainer will be one of the casters for his popular weekly competition.

It will likely do well for UMG to have included LEGQIN as part of the broadcast team for the tournament stream, considering how many of the participants also stream on their own, individual channels.

As a longtime popular member of the online gaming community, the YouTuber is sure to bring his great sense of humor and apt game analysis skills to UMG’s Friday Fortnite coverage.


How to open chests in Upstate New York for Fortnite Week 9 challenges

The ninth 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.

Where to find Upstate New York in Fortnite Season 4

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 9 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.
