Epic Games appear to be making some last-minute rule changes ahead of the final round of the Fortnite Fall Skirmish series at TwitchCon.

Fortnite’s TwitchCon events will include a Duos tournament that is open to anyone that registered online and a ‘Stream-Vitational’ competition that features a number of high profile content creators and some lucky TwitchCon attendees.

The combined prize pool for the two events will be ‘at least’ $2.6 million but the run up to it has not been a smooth one. Epic have already disabled the Fortnitemares zombies for the event following uproar from the competitive community, but it looks like the last-minute rule changes didn’t end there.

Reddit user ‘FatLikeCheese’ took to the FortniteCompetitive subreddit to share a screenshot, presumably of an email from Epic Games, that outlined some rule adjustments that will now put a far greater emphasis on picking up kills during the competition:


If you are unable to view the image, it reads:

“A special bonus is being added to all tournament matches. This includes ALL Heats.

  • $10,000 will be awarded to the duo with the most combined eliminations during circles 3 and 4. During the match, admins will give indicators to when this phase is active.
  • If two or more duos are tied for the most eliminations during the special phase, the $10,000 bonus is withheld and rolled-over into the next match in the series. So the next match of the series will have a bonus $10,000 PLUS the existing $10,000. This will continue to roll-over until the bonus is claimed by the duo with the most eliminations.
  • If a roll-over tie occurs in the final match in the hear, the current bonus is rolled-over into the first match of the grand finals. If a roll-over tie occurs in the final match of the grand finals, the current bonus is rolled-over into the existing $50,000 total elimination bonus.”

Some Redditors were quick to slam Epic Games for adding hidden rule changes, claiming that this is simply an attempt to prevent competitors from playing for the late game.

Others are simply excited to see how this will affect the meta. Luckily for them, they’ll find out soon enough as the competition is set to begin today, October 26.

There has currently been no confirmation about the rule change from Epic Games.

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.
