Where to find the hidden ‘N’ for Fortnite’s Week 5 Missions

We’re now into the fifth week of Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 1, and as always, players can search for a brand-new letter, with Epic Games hiding an ‘N’ somewhere on the island.

In Fortnite Chapter 2, the game’s developers decided to ditch the hidden Battle Stars that had become a staple of the popular battle royale title throughout Chapter 1, instead replacing them with letters which will spell out “Fortnite.”

The F, O, R, and T are already available to find for those who have been completing Missions, and now the N has been placed on the map for inquisitive Fortnite fans to find.

Players who have purchased the Season 1 Battle Pass will be able to find these letters, but if you chose not to purchase it this time around, you won’t be able to interact with them even if you know the location.

Battle Pass owners must first complete any 8 of The Lowdown Mission challenges, which go live on Thursday, November 7, and upon completion will be gifted a loading screen which shows the new 8-Ball skin inside an E.G.O. Outpost, courtesy of Epic Games.

In the top-left corner of the loading screen, players can see an ‘N’ painted onto the wall of the hangar, up a flight of stairs on a platform.

Players need to climb the stairs once they have completed 8 challenges, and the N will appear, which players can interact with to complete the challenge.

Epic GamesThe N can be spotted on the back wall of the hangar.

These hangars sit south-west of Holly Hedges, but if you’re struggling to find the exact location, we’ve marked the E.G.O. Outpost on the map below.

Players need to head south-west of Holly Hedges.

Collecting these letters allows players to rank up their Battle Pass with some free stars, and finding all eight will help you complete the Alter Ego Missions, which unlock as the season goes on.

Remember though, you must complete eight of the Week 5 Missions before you can interact with the letter, so don’t head to the hangers if you haven’t unlocked the loading screen yet, otherwise, you’ll be wasting your time.


How to watch Fortnite’s Galactus event: Start time, leaks, location, more

Fortnite’s hotly-anticipated Galactus event, coming soon as the Season 4 finale, is the talk of the town; from when the Marvel character will make his mark, to how you can watch it in-game, here’s everything you need to know.

A bright object in the sky has begun hurtling towards the Fortnite map, and thanks to datamining and logic, it seems only reasonable to suggest that Galactus is on his way to cause destruction.

Similar to the devastation caused by the Season 1 meteor, you would have to think that his intentions are not good. It seems we’re gearing up for a massive battle featuring every Marvel character currently in the game.

The original Fortnite meteor was first spotted a month and a half before it landed – destroying Dusty Depot – and the same type of impact appears to be on the horizon.

Fortnite Galactus event start date and time

Such is the hype surrounding the appearance of Galactus that he’s taken an incredibly long time to appear. However, his arrival is finally set in stone.

The Nexus War finale event is a one-time spectacle set to kick off on Tuesday, December 1 at 4 PM ET | 1 PM PT | 9 PM GMT.

Some leaks of the upcoming event have made their way to the internet which depicts Thor, She-Hulk, Wolverine, and Iron Man offering themselves as soldiers to fight Galactus.

Fighting Galactus to end the Nexus War will be a one-time event. No replays for this historic battle.

The event itself could see the superheroes taking on Galactus in the form of a raid. Or you could possibly have Galactus taking on the whole lobby, or a Thanos-inspired mode akin to Chapter 1.

Galactus is officially listed as being 28ft tall and that in itself could offer some interesting gameplay options. Given that this will close out a season-long Nexus War, there’s a good chance you’ll have a ton of manual input here. So expect to help the heroes in their fight.

First look at Galactus

With the use of one of the game’s sniper rifles, it’s possible for players to look through the scope, at the object in the sky, and spy him. He’s obviously been getting closer and closer over the season, but thanks to new leaks, we’ve got a better look at the figure than ever before.

It turns out there’s actually a standard sized Galactus skin in the game’s files. Perhaps we’ll be able to run around as the Devourer of Worlds after the event. Only time will tell.

Here are some datamined images of Galactus’ model, too.

The main rumor concerning Phase 4 of the MCU is that Galactus will indeed be the archetypal villain of the main films. The Devourer of Worlds quite literally does what he says on the tin, and his power is unmatched.

The Fortnite tie-in will be a great way to introduce casual fans to the presence of one of the universe’s most powerful, cosmic entities.

We’ve also got a look at where Galactus is. It seems he’s positioned right about the ruins POI in-game from this screenshot from Fortnite leaker, Fevers.

Rising Out of the Water

ShiinaBR also tweeted on November 22, 2020 that Galactus has slowly begun to rise out of the water. We’ll make sure to update this article when we have a better look at this.

Lazing Device

On November 4, Fortnite data miner Mang0e tweeted about a mysterious new weapon in the works. Hardly anything is known about what this ‘Lazing Device’ is. However, Mang0e believes it could perhaps be a prototype for the upcoming Cosmos rifle.

Its base stats are that of the Bolt Sniper Rifle, which is the same as the Cosmos ones, too. Mang0e goes on to say in their Twitter thread that this is all speculation, however, but rebuffs his claims by saying that they were right about the Slurp Bazooka in the past.
