Team SoloMid’s professional Fortnite player Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani has clarified comments he made about the possibility of a union for professional players of the game during a Twitch stream.

Myth tweeted on Monday, December 31 that he was considering starting a union for pro players, stating that he had concerns about the state of Fortnite esports and wanted to have his say on the things that were happening.

Many fans were confused by Myth’s statement, and wondered if this union would actively petition Fortnite to make changes to the game, and try to block new additions to the popular battle royale title. With that in mind, the TSM star has clarified his position on what he wants to do, stating on his January 2 stream that he feels people got the wrong idea about what he is aiming for.

Myth would like to create a union for professional Fortnite players.

“I think people got the wrong impression as to what it’s for,” Myth told his stream. “I don’t want to influence Epic’s decisions when it comes to how they want to run or develop their game.

“At the end of the day, I know we don’t have any control over that. I think their lack of communication is daunting, and that’s really all I want to address with this union.”

“What is the reasoning behind them dropping a patch days before patch day, or right before tournaments? The fact that there is no communication from Epic on these things is fucking scary,” concluded the American.

Myth’s final comments were referencing the new Boom Box item, which was added to the game just hours before the $100,000 WSOE Fortnite event on December 30, a move which angered many pro players.

Many members of the community have voiced their support for Myth’s unionization idea, and with the prize money in Fortnite continuing to rise, it will be fascinating to watch if the players are able to voice their opinions on the future of the game.


How to complete Quests in Fortnite Season 5: Challenges & rewards

With Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5, challenges are seemingly no more, at least in the form that they’ve taken for a while. Now, players are able to complete quests, which operate in a similar way but are a bit different nonetheless. Here’s what you need to know about them.

For a while now, players in Fortnite have been completing challenges in order to help level up their battle pass. These challenges tasked players with completing certain objectives around the map and, in return, they are given rewards, mostly XP. It ended up being one of the main ways players could grind up their battle pass tiers and overall level.

Now, with the start of Season 5 in Chapter 2, challenges are gone, at least in the form they once took. Now, players will have to complete Quests in order to level up their battle pass. But how do you complete them and what are the actual requirements? Here’s what you need to know.

What are Quests in Fortnite Season 5?

Quests can be found in its own menu on the left-side of the screen.

Jumping into Fortnite Season 5, one might be a bit confused as to what Quests are and why they’ve replaced challenges. While don’t know for sure why exactly they’ve taken the place of the latter, you can rest assured that they operate almost identically to the old format.

In Fortnite’s main menu, you should see a button to press on the left side labeled Quests. Clicking it will bring up the map and all your Quests, similar to how it’s been in previous seasons. That being said, these new “challenges” are a bit more narrative-focused, having quotes alongside them.

Chapter 2 Season 5 Quests list

Epic Games
Fortnite Quests are similar to challenges from previous seasons.

Quests are split up into different rarities. Everyone seems to have the two same Legendary Quests, alongside some rare and uncommon quests that are different from player to player. Once a quest is done, a new one pops up in its place, which presumably will keep happening until you’ve gone through every single challenge.

That being said, for the two Quests that everyone does have, here’s what you need to complete:

  • Mandalorian Bounties: Complete Bounties
  • Legendary Quests 1: Four Stages
    • Stage 1: Shotgun Eliminations
    • Stage 2: Assault Rifle Damage
    • Stage 3: Sniper Rifle Elimination from 150m
    • Stage 4: Deal Explosive damage to structures
  • Legendary Quests 2: Three Stages
    • Stage 1: Discover Named Locations
    • Stage 2: Talk to a character
    • Stage 3: Collect bars

New Quests should be available every week as the season goes on, much like the challenges of old. We’ll be updating this piece with new objectives as they become available.

All in all, it seems like Quests are a more refined version of challenges; gone is the long list of tasks and now we have a more organized experience. Here’s hoping that Epic continues with this style in the future.
