With Fortnite’s new bunch of Location Domination Challenges being live, many players will need to find Shanty Town and The Orchard in order to complete them. 

The second set of Fortnite’s Location Domination Challenges are set to go live on May 14, seeing an incredible 900,000 Xp up for grabs if all are completed within the given time frame.

Similar to the first set, the challenges are tiered in terms of the XP rewards they offer, and require players to travel all around the map. While some of the required locations – The Shark, Frenzy Farm – are easy to find and well known to players, a couple are slightly more obscure.

One challenge players have to complete is to ‘Apply 100/250/500 Shields or Healing at Shanty Town or The Orchard’. The challenge itself is simple enough, but both Shanty Town and The Orchard are lesser-known POIs on the Chapter 2 map.

The Orchard has featured in Season 2 challenges before-hand and is located just north of Frenzy Farm, and south-east of Craggy Cliffs. Shanty Town is on the very south-west corner of the map, west of the Slurpy Swamp POI. Both are marked with red crosses on the map below.

It really is that simple to get your XP. Applying 100 shields or healing will grant players 10,000 XP, 250 will give them 25,000 XP and 500 will grant an incredible 55,000 XP. It might take a few games to reach the higher challenges but, if you’re looking to rank up your battle pass, it will certainly be worth it.

We’ve already provided a full guide to the second set of Location Domination challenges, and will do so for any further Fortnite challenges, so stay tuned to Dexerto.


New Fortnite NFL skins arriving before Season 5: Release date & time

The National Football League and Epic Games have announced a continuation in their partnership, which is allowing for a slew of new NFL-themed skins in the mega-popular battle royale game Fortnite within the next few days. 

NFL skins in Fortnite are nothing new. Back in 2018, a slew of skins based on NFL football teams made their way into the game, much to the excitement of fans of the sport.

Unfortunately, while the skins returned to the Item Shop in early 2020 due to the Super Bowl, they never really gained notoriety, with the only exception being when Epic gave players a free refund for the skins after the Washington Football Team’s name and logo was changed a few months back.

Despite this, it seems like more NFL skins are on the way.

The new NFL skins will feature a redesigned look compared to their old versions.

The two mega companies have recently announced that they will be “extending” their partnership to allow for more NFL skins in Fortnite. According to a joint press release from both companies, the new skins will be completely redesigned from their previous looks and will have a “more athletic” and “aerodynamic look and feel”.

This new selection of skins will be called the Gridiron Gang Outfits and will represent all 32 NFL teams in both the AFC and NFC.

In addition to the newly redesigned skins, fans will also have a chance to get their hands on a brand new Back Bling for their NFL skins, named Logo-a-go-go. While the name’s a bit of a tongue-twister, these new items are basically just the logo for the team you want to represent stuck onto the back of your character.

Release Date and Time

According to the company, the skins and back bling will be added to the Fortnite Item Shop in just a few days, on November 25. Like every other item added to the in-game store, it should appear when the store gets updated that day.

Currently, the big unknown is how long the items will be in the shop for. Surely, they’ll only be available for a limited time, however, the exact time frame is unclear. It could be in their for as short as a day or maybe a bit longer.

Chances are though that Epic will give fans a few days to get their hands on it before pulling it from the store. Regardless, NFL fans should be ready to grab these items if they want it because with Fortnite, you never know when they’ll come back.
