v20.20 sees the conclusion of the Battle for Condo Canyon, while a new conflict commences at the Battle for Coney Crossroads. To coincide with this clash, take up a new weapon and select an item to unvault!

The Battle for Coney Crossroads

Condo Canyon can again be called home: the Battle for Condo Canyon is a victory for the Resistance! With the Resistance settling in at this POI, Funding Stations for an Armoured Battle Bus and set of Turrets can now be found here.

The fight against the IO goes on, this time at Coney Crossroads. A literal and figurative turning point, jump into the Battle for Coney Crossroads and help push the IO back! (Refusing to give up, Huntmaster Saber is again prowling overhead.)

New Weapon: Ranger Shotgun

The Ranger Shotgun has appeared on the Island, built for much longer range than most Shotguns. This burst Shotgun has one shot per reload. Because each shot deals serious damage, you won’t need to panic while reloading.

Find Ranger Shotguns on the ground, from certain vendors, and in Chests, Supply Drops, and Loot Sharks.

New Item Vote

The Resistance plans to supply the Boogie Bomb or Rift-To-Go — but needs help deciding which one. Both are tailored for escaping tricky situations. An enemy come out of nowhere? Throw a Boogie Bomb to trap them in a dance. In a losing struggle? Use a Rift-To-Go to create an emergency Rift.

Before one of these escape mechanisms is unvaulted, you’ll have the opportunity to try out both in the wild. Find Boogie Bombs and Rift-To-Gos scattered throughout the Island from Friday, April 22, at 8 AM ET to Monday, April 25, 2022, at 8 AM ET. Not too long after this trial period ends, you can vote for your favourite choice by contributing Bars at Funding Stations. The first item that reaches 100% Funded will swiftly enter the loot pool!

Covert Ops Quests

Help The Origin complete a covert operation in Zero Build. You must finish both stages of each Quest before time runs out to receive the next Quest! Your first task begins April 22 at 9 AM ET.

The Origin’s agenda:

Quest 1: Begins April 22 at 9 AM ET and ends April 26 at 8:59 AM ET

Finished Quest 1 before April 26 at 8:59 AM ET? You’ll proceed to Quest 2!

Quest 2: Begins April 26 at 9 AM ET and ends April 28 at 8:59 AM ET

Finished Quest 2 before April 28 at 8:59 AM ET? You’ll proceed to Quest 3!

Quest 3: Begins April 28 at 9 AM ET and ends April 30 at 8:59 AM ET

Finished Quest 3 before April 30 at 8:59 AM ET? You’ll proceed to Quest 4!

Quest 4: Begins April 30 at 9 AM ET and ends May 2 at 8:59 AM ET

Finished Quest 4 before May 2 at 8:59 AM ET? The operation is complete! And your reward? The Secret Sledge Pickaxe.

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

Published

on

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.

Boogie Bomb and Rift-To-Go Unvaulted Until April 25

Published

By

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.
