Fortnite Battle Royale players looking to complete all of the Out of Time Mission challenges before Season 10 comes to an end are going to need to know where to find the Visitor’s tape recordings. 

As many seasoned veterans of the battle royale game will know by now, Fortnite always gives fans an opportunity to complete a number of tasks and pick up some season exclusive cosmetics before they draw the curtain on each season – and the tenth season is no different! 

There are a number of different Out of Time Mission challenges, which have replaced the previous overtime missions, but the ones we’ll be focusing on specifically with this guide are those that require you to obtain some hidden tape recordings from The Visitor. 

Epic GamesThe Visitor has been very busy during Fortnite Season 10. That’s for sure.

If you have dropped into the game mode of late, you will know that The Visitor – or Scientist – is preparing a rocket for blast off at the Dusty Depot point of interest. Before having it sail into the sky, however, they have dropped four different recordings across the map. 

Instead of searching in every room, corridor and bush across the Fortnite map until you come across them – which would take ample time – why not just use our simple map below? It shows both of their locations and should make them very easy to find.

Here’s where you need to go to collect the Visitor recording on the Floating Island and Retail Row.

As the map suggests, along with the name of each challenge, these can be found at the Retail Row and Floating Island spots. Of course, the latter might move around a little by the time you go looking for the tape, but don’t worry! It won’t move away from where we’ve shown you.

Two other Out of Time Mission challenges were activated on October 9 and, as expected, there are a further two tapes to find – at Moisty and Greasy. Let’s take a look at where to find them. 

Two more tapes can be found here.

Fortnite Visitor tapes at Starry Suburbs and Gotham City

Following the release of more Out of Time Mission challenges on October 10, there are now six tape recordings in total for players to find. The last two can be found below. 

The final two Visitor tape recordings have been planted at both Starry Suburbs and Gotham City.

Just in case you missed them, below you can find the entire list of Out of Time Mission challenges. They are now live to tackle and complete.

Fortnite leak reveals more classic vehicles returning soon

A fresh Fortnite leak has hinted at the return of some classic vehicles, including the controversial Baller hamster ball and even the ATK Golf Cart. 

Back in Fortnite Season 4, Epic Games gave fans of the battle royale a new way to get around the island – a shopping cart. From there, the vehicles in Fortnite have only gotten bigger and better. 

Though, they haven’t been without controversy. The Baller, X-4 Stormwing, and Brute Mech were the source of much anger in the Fortnite community because of how powerful they were – with all three prompting exploits where players could easily win games without much legwork. 

In Fortnite Chapter 2, a number of different cars have been introduced. They’re not as whacky or powerful as the old vehicles, and while they are helpful, some players do yearn for the Shopping Cart and Quadcrasher’s returns.

The controversial planes returned in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5.

Well, according to a handful of new leaks, players might be getting their wish after a few of the older vehicles were given a refresh in the v15.20 patch.

According to Fortnite leakers FNBRUnreleased and InTheShadeYT, the Baller, Hoverboard, and ATK Golf Cart were all updated in the recent patch.

“Ballers and Hoverboard have been also updated! We may see them making a return soon,” FNBRUnreleased posted, while noting that the textures for the ATK Golf Cart were also refreshed. However, there doesn’t seem to be much of a change from the way the ATK’s used to look. 

There’s nothing mentioned about when exactly the vehicles could return, but it does seem possible that they could appear in this season. We got the Stormwings back over the holiday period, after all. 

Until we see them in-game though, it is worth noting that nothing is confirmed. Epic might have plans to bring them back, but scrap them based on something else that happens – say, they’re not compatible with another item. So, let’s just wait and see.
