The past few months have seen Fortnite transcend beyond the world of online game and become a cultural phenomenon.

No longer just a video game, aspects of Fortnite can frequently be seen on clothing and merchandise, in popular media, and even at sporting events, where professional athletes use the game’s emotes as celebrations.

Following this trend, YouTuber ‘WiziBlimp’ has used Fortnite’s in-game replay feature to recreate the music video of the recently released song “This is America.”

Written and produced by American rapper Childish Gambino, the song became an instant hit upon its release on May 5th, debuting at number one on the US Billboard Top 100 list.

Using the Fortnite characters and emotes at his disposal, WiziBlimp did a remarkable job getting his video to resemble that of “This is America” as closely as possible.

The movement of the in-game cameras, the accuracy of the character placements, and especially the locations that were used, all contributed to producing a true piece of Fortnite art.

Perhaps the most incredible part of it all is the fact that they managed to complete this project with a full, four member squad on a public server, considering how many times they had to face enemy players who came nearby.

Nevertheless, WiziBlimp and his team managed to get it done, and the full Fortnite edition of the “This is America” music video can be seen below, and on his official YouTube channel.

Fortnite Season 4 might be new, but an old enemy, the infamous gnome, is up to his usual antics. This means there are more secret challenges to complete. Here’s how to do them.

Fortnite’s secret challenges might be a small addition, but they’re welcome ones that keep players on their toes. It’s always nice to get one-up on that pesky gnome, but more importantly, players receive a decent amount of experience for completing them.

Fortnite Season 4 introduced a lot of new things, but it also added two new more secret challenges. They offer a modest 10,000 experience each, which makes them a nice way to boost your level. 

If you want to complete them but aren’t willing to invest the time and patience to figure it all out, we’ve got you covered.

Fortnite Season 4’s Secret Challenges all revolve around this pesky gnome.

Cleanse Tanks

The first challenge is located in Slurpy Swamp, and it’s very easy to do. 

  • Naturally, the first step is to make your way over to Slurpy Swamp.
  • Once you’re there, make your way to the main building and look for the two large tanks lying around.
  • You’ll notice that their tops are missing, which is intentional.
  • Jump inside and take a dip to cleanse them. It’s as simple as that.

Escape

Luckily, the second challenge is in Slurpy Swamp as well. However, it’s a little trickier to spot than the first.

  • First, head to the northern side of the main building. It’s the same one you were in for the previous challenge.
  • Next, look for a wall with a conveniently-placed hole.
  • The insufferable gnome who has been playing games with us this whole time will be hidden inside. 
  • To draw him out, all you need to do is walk up towards him. If you get close enough, he’ll panic and launch himself into the distance.

That’s all there is to it. If you managed to complete them both, you’ll find yourself 20,000 experience points closer to a higher level.

Many players tend to stumble upon these challenges and finish them without even realizing it. However, others aren’t so lucky, and while they aren’t necessarily hard to do, they can be a pain to find.

Who knows where we’ll run into that pesky gnome next, but it’s inevitable that we will again in when the next series of challenges have been released.

Until then, you might want to go back and finish any of the others you’ve missed.
