For Week 5, players will be able to get a new Trident pickaxe for after completing the “Claim your Trident at Coral Cove” challenge.

This Trident can be found at multiple locations around Coral Cove so it can be quite challenging to finish if you don’t know where to look. Here’s everything you’ll need to complete it.

How to Claim Aquaman’s Trident at Coral Cove

  1. Make your way to Coral Cove, on the north side of the map next to Sweaty Sands.
  2. There are three locations that can hold a Trident, so you might need to search all three to find it.
  3. Once you find the Trident, simply walk towards it and interact with it to pick it up.
  4. After exiting the match, you should have Aquaman’s Trident as a pickaxe in your inventory.

There you have it, once you’ve collected the Trident you should be able to equip it as a pickaxe and make use of it in future games.

The v14.30 update has finally been released for Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 4 and it has introduced some secret changes that Epic Games did not include in the latest set of patch notes.

Fortnite’s superhero-themed Season 4 is continuing to deliver fresh content, with even more characters like Daredevil soon to be released in-game, as part of the upcoming Marvel Knockout Super Series.

However, while Epic revealed that there were other tweaks, such as minor buffs for the Combat shotgun, there were a few secret changes that were not revealed in the latest patch notes. Here’s everything you need to know.

While there have been many Marvel heroes added to Fortnite in Season 4, it was also revealed that Galactus would appear in the battle royale as the villain, ahead of the Nexus War event.

It seems as if he has finally been added to the Fortnite map after some eagle-eyed Fortnite fans discovered a change in the map’s skyline, with a bizarre red dot now visible after the 14.30 patch.

Fortnite leaker iFireMonkey revealed that the “distant object” in the sky was Galactus and that he was on his way to the Fortnite island ahead of his showdown with the Avengers and other Marvel characters.

New Black Panther Mythic Ability

Fortnite’s Season 4 also saw the introduction of new Mythic Abilities that players can equip in-game and the latest update, on October 13, added a Black Panther ability called “Kinetic Armor.”

The new power works similarly to the character’s suit in the popular Marvel movies, allowing players to absorb more damage, run faster, and even deal damage to nearby opponents and structures, after it has been activated.

Fortnite YouTuber SypherPK shared gameplay of Black Panther’s Kinetic Armor and revealed that it can be found in the Stark Industries Supply Drones that are scattered across different points-of-interest on the Fortnite map.

Fortnite Holly Hedges map changes

There were also some secret map changes that were not mentioned in Fortnite’s recent patch notes and the v14.30 update saw tweaks to the Superstore near the Holly Hedges POI.

With some Halloween-themed changes expected to arrive in Fortnite in the coming weeks, Epic Games has redecorated the landmark and renamed it the “Hey Boo Megastore.”

While this is one of the first Halloween-based changes so far, it is likely that more will be on the way ahead of the upcoming Fortnitemares Halloween event.

Epic teases Midas’ return to Fortnite

Midas has been one of the biggest characters in Fortnite Chapter 2, but after his attempt to shake up the world in Season 2’s in-game event, he has completely disappeared from the battle royale.

While he was last seen being eaten by a shark in the Season 3 trailer, it seems the mysterious character could be set for a return in the upcoming Halloween event, with his golden chair now appearing in The Authority POI.
