Internet detectives have confirmed the existence of previously leaked Fortnite Battle Royale secret quests, and it appears that one of them is already in the game while two more could be coming soon.

About a week ago, popular Fortnite leaker, FireMonkey, revealed three secret quests that would be popping up on the battle royale to finish Season 2: “Stop the Battle,” “Teddies Libearated!” and “Celebrate the Truce.”

“Teddies Liberated!” is reportedly already available for completion, but not much information had been available about the other two—until now. One user, niitq, has decrypted Fortnite’s code and confirmed via Twitter that “Celebrate the Truce” will be the next secret quest.

Secret quests are always a fun way to earn extra XP and these seem to be no exception.

We’ve already had a number of quests this season that included the game’s gnomes and bears. At the start of April, there were the “For the Bears” and “For the Gnomes” missions, which required finding hidden honey pots and telescopes, respectively. 

While it’s unclear how much XP will be awarded in the new secret ones, but the two mentioned above each gave players 40,000, and “Teddies Libearated!” awards players 15,000.

So far, all we know about these leaked quests is that they involve the teddy bears, gnomes, and dancing.

From the descriptions, FireMonkey discovered that “Stop the Battle” requires disarming the bears and gnomes—effectively forcing a truce, while “Celebrate the Truce” more jovially enlists players to “dance for the generals.”

These secret objectives are likely additions that will complement the Astronomical and Midas’ Mission challenge sets, granting players more opportunities to gain the experience needed for their favorite rewards.

One of the leaked Fortnite secret quests apparently involve these gnomes.

With the first leaked quest already popping up under the radar, fans should keep their eyes out in case more information is revealed about the other two quests.

Once those are discovered, explanatory guides and videos are bound to surface for players eager to level up before the season’s end.

The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) is back for Chapter 2 Season 4, with a return to the beloved Trios format that fans have been clamoring to see make a return. With the action kicking off on October 9, here’s everything you need to know to make sure you catch all of the action.

FNCS is making its return to trios in Season 4 for the first time since the inaugural Season X event. While it’s been a pretty poorly kept secret, there are some changes to the format from when it last appeared in August 2019.

With qualifiers now completed, we’re heading into the main stage of the FNCS Season 4 event, with a full month of competitive Fortnite on the way featuring some of the biggest names in the game competing for their cut of the prize money.

FNCS Season 4 format

FNCS Season 4 returns to the Trios format that has been used in the past, and is arguably the most popular competitive format in the tournament’s history, with past events filled with massive plays and huge battles that make for the ultimate Fortnite viewing experience.

As always, FNCS runs on a points-based scoring system, with your final placement in matches contributing to your overall score at the end of the weekend. Those who manage to win a game will receive 25 points as their reward, with the values decreasing incrementally down to 17th place, with anyone finishing below that scoring nothing. There are points for finding eliminations though, so players will be on the lookout for enemies to wipe out and add to their tally.

FNCS scoring system

  • Victory Royale: 25 Points
  • 2nd: 20 Points
  • 3rd: 16 Points
  • 4th: 14 Points
  • 5th: 13 Points
  • 6th: 12 Points
  • 7th: 11 Points
  • 8th: 10 Points
  • 9th: 9 Points
  • 10th: 8 Points
