Professional Fortnite player CouRage helped create one of gaming’s feel good stories of the year with one of the game’s youngest players.

OpTic Gaming’s CouRage is known for his impressive Fortnite play and massive Twitch following – but sometimes, another player steals the show.

Ten-year-old Connor is often a guest on CouRage’s streams, popping in on games and having hilarious (and adorable) interactions with the top player.

While Connor is often part of one of Fortnite’s most viewed streams, he didn’t have an audience of his own. With no social media accounts or streams in his name, Connor was known through Fortnite – and CouRage – only.

However, Connor’s anonymity didn’t last for long. CouRage took it upon himself to help the youngster get his own YouTube channel.

Within the first twenty-four hours of uploading his very first video, Connor’s channel received over 30,000 subscribers.

CouRage created a Tweet detailing the success, stating that he and fellow player Nogla are working with Connor’s father to run the account.

“Good story of the day:
Connor has made a YouTube channel and uploaded his first video. In under 24 hours, he has over 30,000 subscribers. Super proud of him.
Nogla and I plan to help his dad run it all so we can try to help set him up for the future.”


Responses to Connor’s new channel have been nothing short of supportive, with fans and players alike citing his success at an early age thanks to CouRage’s initiative.

“You’ve literally helped this guy have a promising future for the rest of his life. All because you happened to join a duo fill with him. Insane”


Connor’s video, appropriately dubbed “con 1st vid,” has received over 40,169 views, and features funny clips of his Fortnite exploits with other players. Currently, Connor’s channel has 36K subscribers and counting.


How to open chests in Upstate New York for Fortnite Week 10 challenges

The tenth week of Fortnite’s Season 4 has arrived, and with a new set of weekly challenges comes one task that asks players to open chests in Upstate New York. While this may sound confusing, here’s everything you need to make this challenge simple. 

Fortnitemares has officially arrived, with Midas reappearing for the first time since his Device experiment backfired badly, flooding the entire island at the end of Season Two. Midas has regained control of The Agency, and his army of Shadow Henchmen are ready to cause chaos.

Of course, the overarching Season 4 storyline is all about superheroes, with Marvel characters invading the island. The evil Galactus is on his way, and heroes like Tony Stark, Dr. Doom, and Wolverine have made Fortnite their home as they prepare for battle.

With these characters, new POIs and locations have appeared, and to complete this specific challenge you’ll need to head to Upstate New York. While this may sound like a strange request, it actually exists as a landmark inside the game. If you aren’t sure where to find it though, we’ve got everything you need to complete this task.

Where to find Upstate New York in Fortnite Season 4

When Stark Industries arrived in Fortnite Season 4, you may have noticed that the POI is located inside what appears to be a massive bubble, which covers a large portion of the north-east corner of the island. It’s easy to spot, as the area is marked on the map for you, and the trees inside it are lovely shades of yellow and orange, compared to the normal green trees elsewhere.

Fans of Marvel Cinematic Universe will know that Stark calls New York his home, with the Stark Industries tower planted in the middle of New York City. Even the Avengers base in later films is located in Upstate New York. It shouldn’t come as a huge surprise then that his location in Fortnite was originally planted in the state of New York, which has now been transported to the island.

Thankfully, once you know where Upstate New York is, it’s easy to complete this Week 10 challenge, as all you need to do is open seven chests inside this landmark. They don’t even have to be opened in the same match, so just pick them up as you see them and you’ll finish this task eventually. If you’re still not sure where to go, we’ve included an image below.

It may take a couple of visits to Upstate New York to finish off this task, as there will be plenty of other people attempting it too. While Stark Industries has the most chests, it may be easier to head to some of the smaller buildings located in the zone, as they will be quieter and make you less likely to face enemies.

It’s well worth completing this task if you’re ranking up your Season 4 Battle Pass, as this offers a massive 25,000 XP reward, which will help you unlock new skins and cosmetic items.
