Fortnite ‘Overtime’ Challenges: How To Place Top 15 In Duos With A Friend (And Get A Friend)

Published

on

It wouldn’t be a Valentine’s Day event without some sort of challenges that have you doing two-person activities with a friend. It’s a kind of gimme, like opening presents for a Christmas challenge, or launching fireworks on the 4th of July. And so it’s not surprising that duos are featured in the first drop of Overtime challenges in Fortnite: Battle Royale, a set of free challenges meant to both celebrate Valentine’s Day and fill in the gap between the end of Season 7 and the start of Season 8. Completing 13 of them nets you the Season 8 battle pass for free, likely introducing millions to a world of premium skins. So let’s dive into how to place Top 15 in Duos, playing with a friend.

For where to search treasure chests and ammo boxes at an RV Park, click here. 

First off, the old trick won’t work this time around. Usually, when I have to fill a squads placement challenge I just click “Don’t Fill” and drop in solo, keeping my distance from other players once I get on the ground. You’re never going to win that way, but you can typically place high enough in the more bombastic team-based modes just by keeping a low profile. The friend requirement means that you’ll need a little coordination this time around.

First off, you’ll need a friend. If you don’t have one, don’t worry: plenty of people play this game solo. The best way to get one would be to play duos or squads with a matchmade team and then send your teammates an invite after the match is finished. It helps, when doing this, to not be a terrible teammate. Most people will be perfectly happy to oblige so long as you’re generous with covering fire, revives and loot. The other option would be to hit up your social media channels of choice, where people are always asking for adds, gifts and the like. Check Reddit comments, Facebook groups, even Twitter: shouldn’t be too much of a problem.

You could also, as I can admit to having done before, create second account and squad with yourself on a different platform, then let one of yourselves die and just hide for a while.

After that, you’ve got to hit top 15. whenever you’re playing for placement and not necessarily the Victory Royale it helps to bide your time and only fight when you have to. Just keep an eye on the upper right, where you can see the number of players remaining. You’re looking for somewhere just south of 30. 30 players would put you in the top 15 assuming that all the teams left are complete duos. This likely isn’t the case: there are always some solo droppers and surviving halves of a team in the mix, too. I wouldn’t start to feel more confident until there are 20 players left.

Chapter 3 Season 2 Live Event: Everything we know so far

Published

By

The first live event of Chapter 3 is expected to take place in less than six weeks. Here’s everything we know so far, based on various leaks.

Leaked Map Stages

All future stages for the territories controlled by both The Seven and Imagined Order have been leaked by data-miner Hypex. The maps show the Resistance will retake control of most of the Island, leaving only Command Cavern and Loot Lake for the IO. The final stage will lead the story directly into a live event, with the Imagined Order having little options left for victory.

Leaked Quest Voice Line

Epic also recently added new voice lines for the upcoming Week 6 Quests which, when reviewed closely, appear to tease the main story of a new live event. The Agent Jones character claims “one of the IO’s Doomsday devices is now in production”, seemingly hinting that the new event could be related to Chapter 2 Season 2’s The Device, which was also focused around a “Doomsday Device”.

A transcript of the Agent Jones voice lines can be found below:

“This will not come as a surprise, but IO management loves Doomsday machines – loves them! There’s even a doomsday division at HQ, oh man their softball team is awful but they will one day destroy us all so… kind of a wash. We have very credible intel that one of the IO’s Doomsday devices is now in production. We need to find out everything we can while we still can. Hit the field, I’ll prep the cameras . . . I have a very bad feeling that we are not ready for what we’re gonna find out.”

Doomsday Landmark

According to Fortnite data-miner GMatrixGames, a new Landmark code-named ‘DDMachine’ has been added to the game’s tags, suggesting that the Doomsday Device described by Agent Jones could be added to the map in the future.

Less than six weeks remain until the potential live event. We’ll keep you updated with the latest leaks and official announcements.

In preparation for the upcoming item vote, the Boogie Bomb and Rift-To-Go have both been unvaulted for a trial period until April 25.

Players can now find the items scattered throughout the Island from Chests, Llamas, Supply Drops, Loot Sharks and ground loot. Once the short trial period ends on April 25 at 8AM ET, new gold funding stations will go live in-game on the following day to let players “fund” the item they want to see return permanently (for the rest of Season 2). The item that becomes 100% funded first will automatically be reintroduced to the loot pool as soon as the goal, of which the exact value is unknown, is reached.

We’ll keep you updated on which item gets unvaulted.
