Fortnite Chapter 2 finally launched on October 15 as Epic Games overhauled the classic battle royale map and gave fans a brand-new landscape to explore. Aside from the new map, a raft of cosmetics, and some changes to the game’s mechanics, the developers opted to change the loot pool.

A ton of weapons and mobility items have been removed, giving Epic a chance to breathe new life into the game. With the smaller loot pool, however, some items are increasingly harder to find – including the loot llamas, which have been spotted on the side of hills, amid trees, and other hard to reach places.

Twitch.tvTfue has become the biggest active streamer on Twitch following Shroud’s and Ninja’s exit to Mixer.

Yet, these are usually limited to one or two per match, so it’s pretty rare to see any more. Despite that though, during his October 25 stream, Tfue was able to nonchalantly pick out three during a drop in to a match.

As he warmed up prior to playing alongside his new-look Fortnite Championship Series squad, the popular Twitch streamer didn’t opt for a hot drop or even a brisk glide down. Instead, he stayed as high in the air as possible and begun pinging random spots.

He was able to uncover two llamas quickly around the Slupry Swamp area while his viewers watched on, stunned at how easy it was, before he was able to uncover yet another in the distance.

The Fortnite professional has had a knack for uncovering these hard-to-find llamas from insane distances, including finding a handful from the spawn island during previous seasons.

Back then, though, llamas were seemingly far more common than they are now, and other professionals had started pulling out similar tricks before games. 

They may become even harder to find as Chapter 2 unfolds and more items are added to the battle royale, but that’s a decision for Epic.

Fortnite’s Galactus Nexus War finale event is finally over and it was packed full of a ton of Marvel-themed content. Here’s what went down during the insanely hyped event that closed off Season 4 of the popular game.

For a while now, Epic Games, Marvel, and the Fortnite community have been hyping up a brand new event to close out Chapter 2, Season 4 of Fortnite. Galactus, the Devourer of Worlds, had been slowly inching his way towards the island all season and on December 1, 2020, he finally arrived.

But what happened once he finally showed up to the Fortnite island? Did players have to fight him like we originally thought? Here’s what you need to know about what went down during the Nexus War finale event in case you missed it.

Fortnite Galactus Nexus War finale event recap

Epic Games/Marvel
Galactus wasted no time in destroying the Helicarrier at the start of the event.

All in all, the event itself was pretty short, clocking in at a little over 10 minutes when all was said and done. Still, there was a ton that happened during that span.

Once the in-game timer reached zero, the giant Galactus made his final push to the island. After declaring that he hungered, he destroyed the Helicarrier starting location with ease, sending you and all the other players flying across the sky.

Fortunately, Iron Man-himself flew in as you got close to hitting the ground, handing you a jetpack and telling you that it’s time to stop Galactus. Before you had a chance to do anything, however, the massive villain started consuming Zero Point, which started a “full reality collapse”.

After being transported by Iron Man, you reappeared, in first-person, inside of a Battle Bus decked out in weaponry and explosives. From that point on, your goal was to fly the Buses into Galactus and have him consume them, which ultimately sent him back to “where he came from.”

Epic Games/Marvel
In order to defeat Galactus, players had to drive Battle Buses decked out in weaponry and explosives towards the villain so that he would consume it.

A few Marvel characters even made small appearances, including Thor himself (who was one of the main characters this season) and even Wolverine, who helped you in the fight against Galactus.

After finally destroying a plethora of drones and getting close enough, Galactus got sent back to where he came from, you were teleported away to safety, and the event ended.

Epic Games/Marvel
Players were joined by both Thor and Wolverine during the event, who helped in taking down Galactus.

Of course, it wouldn’t be Marvel if there wasn’t a “post-credits scene.” After the event was over and Galactus got taken care of, players got a shot of Jonesy in his office, who wakes up suddenly before the screen says that the story is to be continued in Season 5.

Re-watch the entire Fortnite Galactus event

Unfortunately, if you were hoping to catch a re-run of the event inside of Fortnite itself, it seems like that’s not going to be possible. Epic Games has confirmed that it was a “one-time-only” event so if you missed out, you won’t be able to experience it again in-game.

However, we did record the entire experience, so can rewatch it as many times as you want:

What’s next?

Now that the Galactus event is over, Epic Games have confirmed that the Season 5 update will be released at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, with the downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans will get to see what the devs have in store for them to enjoy!
