Fortnite Season 2, Week 10 has arrived and with it are a host new challenges for players to complete, including one whereby players have to search five golden pipe wrenches around the map. 

While the Week 10 challenges range in terms of difficulty, from simple eliminate opponents to searching chests in different matches, one of the more complex challenges is to locate and search five golden pipe wrenches.

Unfortunately, the pipes can be pretty hard to notice given their relatively small size and color but, provided you search in the right areas, you shouldn’t have too much trouble in locating the five you need to complete the challenge. You can get a better look at what you’re searching for below.

When you’ve located a golden pipe wrench, all you have to do is search it in the same way you would a chest. The challenge will then register as one completed, and you can move on to the next location.

As with many of these challenges, Epic have spread them right around the map so, depending on how kind zones are, it may take you two or three games to complete them.

However, we’ve collated five locations where you can find the golden pipe wrenches and complete the challenges. As you can see from the map below, they tend to be located in coastal areas, similar to the campsites players had to find a few weeks ago.

Players will have to more or less tour Fortnite’s coastal regions in order to find all five, with golden pipe wrenches at Dirty Docks, Steamy Shacks, and west of Slurpy Swamp.

The reward for completing the challenge, like all of the Week 10 Midas missions, is 40,000 in-game XP points. This will help players rank up their Season 2 battle pass before it ends on June 3, over a month later than was originally planned.

Fortnite World Cup winner Aqua banned from FNCS by Epic Games

Fortnite World Cup champion David ‘aqua’ Wang has been banned by Epic Games, following controversy over alleged stream sniping against FNCS opponents.

Aqua’s trio (with Rezon and Noahreyli) have been participating in FNCS Europe and, following the Week 3 semis, were accused of stream-sniping another popular trio: Benjy ‘Benjyfishy’ Fish, Martin ‘MrSavage’ Andersen, and Kevin ‘LeTsHe’ Fedjuschkin.

Although fans initially deemed aqua’s behavior suspicious, things quickly escalated. With Benjyfishy’s team unable to qualify for the Week 3 finals and the discovery that aqua was watching MrSavage’s stream during the competition, the controversy has spiraled.

Aqua banned by Epic Games

On October 25, aqua confirmed that his account had been banned from competitive, with Epic Games simply providing the reason as “other.”

Following condemnations of the World Cup winner’s team, rumors began circulating that aqua, Rezon, and Noahreyli had been banned by participating past the first match of the Finals. 

It was never officially legitimized and has since been made even more unclear by responses from some of the involved parties.

After the rumor mill buzzed with the reports that aqua’s team was banned from competing, he took to Twitter and gave a concise clarification denying those allegations: “We are not banned, we just don’t wanna play. It’s boring without early fighting Benjy.”

Given the difficulty inherent to confirming someone was in fact stream-sniping and didn’t coincidentally run into a fellow streamer, many believe it is unlikely that the World Cup winner has actually been exiled from the competition.

Additionally, some have noted that bans typically result in removal from the leaderboard, something that aqua’s team has not been hit with.

As for how the players are handling it, aqua and Benjyfishy simply joked about the incident.

 

At 17 years old, aqua represented his home country of Austria to the fullest by winning the 2019 Fortnite World Cup’s Duos event with Norway’s Emil ‘Nyhrox’ Bergquist. With a smooth $1.5 million earned from the World Cup, he’s since signed with Cooler Esport and continued to win competitions across Europe.

We will continue to update this article with more details as they become available.
