Data miners have given us our first look at the highly anticipated Hunting Party skin for Fortnite Battle Royale following the November 6 update.

As is often the case after a Fortnite update, the release of the v6.22 patch files means that data miners have been able to begin digging through them for hidden gems and information.

As a result, the November 6 leaks are already beginning to flow. Perhaps the most exciting of those comes in the form of a sneak peek for the upcoming Hunting Part skin.

The head and shoulder shot provided doesn’t seem to show the most exciting skin ever, but we’re willing to bet that this will be another outfit that changes and updates over time as you level it up.

According to leaked names and rarities, the skin will be Legendary and called ‘A.I.M’. The description reads: “Scanning area for targets.”

The Back Bling for the skin has also been leaked, and it appears to show a counter of some sort on the back of an industrial-looking piece of equipment with a hazard sign.

Our best guess is that the number shown will be a kill counter – perhaps for kills in each game or perhaps a countdown to when you’ll level the skin up?

(The kill counter now seems to have been confirmed. The Back Bling will be named ‘E.L.I.M’ and come with the description: “Increment elimination count.”)

The Hunting Party skin is linked to the Hunting Party challenges that have been ongoing throughout Season 6 in Fortnite Battle Royale.

Much like the Blockbuster skin in Season 4 and the Road Trip skin in Season 5, the Hunting Party skin can only be unlocked by completing the weekly bonus Hunting Party challenges after you’ve completed the seven standard ones for the week.

Completing the Hunting Party challenge usually consists of finding a clue in that week’s loading screen and using that hint to find a hidden Battle Star or Banner somewhere on the map.

You’ll need to complete all of the Hunting Party challenges to get the skin. Our Week 6, Season 6 Hunting Party guide can be found here.


How to open chests in Upstate New York for Fortnite Week 10 challenges

The tenth week of Fortnite’s Season 4 has arrived, and with a new set of weekly challenges comes one task that asks players to open chests in Upstate New York. While this may sound confusing, here’s everything you need to make this challenge simple. 

Fortnitemares has officially arrived, with Midas reappearing for the first time since his Device experiment backfired badly, flooding the entire island at the end of Season Two. Midas has regained control of The Agency, and his army of Shadow Henchmen are ready to cause chaos.

Of course, the overarching Season 4 storyline is all about superheroes, with Marvel characters invading the island. The evil Galactus is on his way, and heroes like Tony Stark, Dr. Doom, and Wolverine have made Fortnite their home as they prepare for battle.

With these characters, new POIs and locations have appeared, and to complete this specific challenge you’ll need to head to Upstate New York. While this may sound like a strange request, it actually exists as a landmark inside the game. If you aren’t sure where to find it though, we’ve got everything you need to complete this task.

Where to find Upstate New York in Fortnite Season 4

When Stark Industries arrived in Fortnite Season 4, you may have noticed that the POI is located inside what appears to be a massive bubble, which covers a large portion of the north-east corner of the island. It’s easy to spot, as the area is marked on the map for you, and the trees inside it are lovely shades of yellow and orange, compared to the normal green trees elsewhere.

Fans of Marvel Cinematic Universe will know that Stark calls New York his home, with the Stark Industries tower planted in the middle of New York City. Even the Avengers base in later films is located in Upstate New York. It shouldn’t come as a huge surprise then that his location in Fortnite was originally planted in the state of New York, which has now been transported to the island.

Thankfully, once you know where Upstate New York is, it’s easy to complete this Week 10 challenge, as all you need to do is open seven chests inside this landmark. They don’t even have to be opened in the same match, so just pick them up as you see them and you’ll finish this task eventually. If you’re still not sure where to go, we’ve included an image below.

It may take a couple of visits to Upstate New York to finish off this task, as there will be plenty of other people attempting it too. While Stark Industries has the most chests, it may be easier to head to some of the smaller buildings located in the zone, as they will be quieter and make you less likely to face enemies.

It’s well worth completing this task if you’re ranking up your Season 4 Battle Pass, as this offers a massive 25,000 XP reward, which will help you unlock new skins and cosmetic items.
