Two new Rift Beacons have appeared in Fortnite Battle Royale and it appears that two of the game’s most popular locations are about to come back – Greasy Grove and Moisty Mire. 

These Rift Beacons have been appearing all over the battle royale map during the course of Season 10 and have caused the return of Dusty Depot, Retail Row, and even Kevin the Cube’s Floating Island following the v10.20 content update.

When they appear, map changes have almost always come soon after. Although, it seems that Epic Games are keeping players on their toes again and have teased the return of two of the most popular points of interest.

There are two Rift Beacons located at Paradise Palms, something that’s been teased in previous leaks, as well as on top of the icy lake in the snow biome.

On September 4, fans noticed that these Rift Beacons were placed at Dusty Depot – with one on the back of a truck – and now we know where they were going. 

As seen in the images below, there’s a Rift Beacon right next to where Greasy Grove once stood and another where Moisty Mire once was.

With so many changes already being made near the factories, it seemed fairly obvious that they wouldn’t stay there for long and that’s been proven correct.

Despite the previous leaks, players will be delighted to see that Epic could soon be bringing back two previous destinations.

Other fan favorite points of interest have also appeared in the game’s files, such as Anarchy Acres, Risky Reels and others. 

With the truck already dropping Beacons off near Greasy and Paradise, it remains to be seen if these other POIs are set for a comeback as well – or if this is related to the seemingly ongoing crossover event with IT Chapter 2.

We’re now in the seventh week of Fortnite’s Marvel-themed season meaning that there’s not long to go until the current battle pass items are locked away for good. Here’s everything you need to know about the latest challenges to help with your experience gains.

As with every other season, XP is vital in Fortnite. Whether you’re trying to unlock one of the 100 base tiers in the Season 4 Battle Pass, or you’re pushing beyond that for ultra-rare skins, there’s always something to pursue.

Challenges are often the best way to help boost your XP gains. Most can be knocked off in a matter of minutes for some of the biggest XP dumps possible in the battle royale. If you’ve already been ticking objectives off each week, you’ll feel right at home this time around.

From searching chests to tallying eliminations, the Week 7 challenges couldn’t be simpler. Here’s our complete overview of the eight unique tasks on offer.

Be on the lookout for enemies near Doom’s Domain this week.

You’ll be jumping around the map quite a bit this week as almost every challenge will take you to a new location. Finding eliminations at Craggy Cliffs should be a breeze as this is sure to be a hotspot over the next few days. Just be prepared for an immediate fight every time you drop here in Week 7.

The same can be said for Doom’s Domain as players will be looking to enter the vault for easy XP. Make sure you have a decent loadout before heading in as you’re sure to face some opposition here.

One rather unique challenge this week asks you to deal damage in a very specific way. First, you’ll need to find and equip Storm’s Whirlwind Blast ability. Once you’ve got an enemy in your sights, use this ability to knock them back. Once they’re pushed off course, you’ll then need to swap your weapons and deal 1,000 damage.

To tick off multiple challenges at once, you could always find Storm’s ability, then head to Craggy Cliffs, or even Coral Castle. The full list of objectives for Week 7 can be found below.

  • Search Chests at Catty Corner (7)

If you’re struggling with the unique tasks this week, here’s a few quick pointers. Storm’s ability can be used to knock enemies off high ground vantage points. Any fall damage will count towards your weekly objective.

Additionally, Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House can be found just North of the Stark Industries POI.
