After weeks of speculation, the date and time is set for the upcoming Fortnite in-game event, unofficially the Cattus vs Doggus event, as various countdowns appear around the map.

Fortnite Season 9 is rapidly drawing to a close, with an in-game event set to close off the season, believed to be an epic battle between ‘Cattus’ and ‘Doggus’.

Cattus – a monster believed to be roaming around the map, causing the destruction of both Polar Peak and Loot Lake – is set to fight Doggus, a massive robot that is slowly being constructed at Pressure Plant.

EPIC GAMESThe Cattus monster emerged from Polar Peak, leaving a trail of destruction.

After weeks of leaks and other easter eggs on the map, the date and time has finally been set for the event, following various countdowns appearing around the battle royale island.

We are now able to confirm that the event will take place on July 20 at 3:00 pm EST.

It’s more than likely Epic Games will create or restrict the standard playlists, similar to the unvaulting event, so no one will miss out on the experience.

Epic GamesThe countdown is now visible to all players.

The countdowns have appeared on each of the sky platforms scattered around the map, possibly suggesting that players will be forced to watch the battle from above, given the tremendous scale of the robot.

On the other hand, members of the Fortnite community believe players might play an active part in taking down the monster, potentially banding together to take down its HP during the event.

EPIC GAMESThe countdown appeared over all the sky platforms.

Whatever Epic have in store, it’s sure to leave (most) fans happy, given the overwhelming success of in-game events in the past, such as the Marshmello concert at Pleasant Park.

An official announcement from Epic is expected in the coming days and as always, Dexerto will keep you updated on how to watch it for yourself.


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.
