Epic Games have finally added the Samurai Scrapper pack to the Fortnite Item Shop. Here’s how to get it and how much it costs.
Published 10 hours agoon September 8, 2020
Epic Games have released a brand new skin and cosmetic bundle in Fortnite Season 4, and it’s called the Samurai Scrapped pack.
One of the things that puts Fortnite on its own island in the battle royale space is the insane amount of skins, styles, and cosmetics its developers release with new updates.
Many of these can be unlocked by completing in-game challenges with the Battle Pass, but some members of the community also gobble up those in the Fortnite Item Shop as well.
Speaking of which, a new addition has appeared and is available worldwide, for a limited time. It was previously leaked in August, so some may remember seeing it already.
On September 8, a graphic was posted showing off the main samurai character as well as another style (complete with a helmet), along with various other bits and pieces.

Our Fortnite Wolverine Week 3 challenge guide shows you exactly where to find the Sentinel head at Dirty Docks in Season 4.
Published 14 hours agoon September 8, 2020
Week 3 of the Fortnite Wolverine Battle Pass challenges will have players searching for a Sentinel Head at Dirty Docks, and we’re going to show you exactly where to go to complete it.
As many players will know by now, you can unlock an exclusive Season 4 Wolverine skin by plugging away at this specific challenge list all season long.
The final challenge will actually match you and your squad up against the clawed hero in a final showdown, with winners taking home the latest outfit added to the game in the Marvel crossover.
Let’s not get ahead of ourselves, though, as there are a few to complete before reaching that point. With Week 1 and Week 2’s tasks behind us, now it’s all about locating a Sentinel Head.
As the challenge states, it can be found near Dirty Docks in-game, but not exactly at the point of interest.
As the map shows below, you’re going to have to land just to the left of the location to find the huge purple robots, one of which will have a head to interact with.

Once it has been released by Epic Games, the head will be activated in-game and you will be able to check off another objective on your quest to the Wolverine Fortnite skin. Soon enough, it will be yours.
Epic shipped a secret change to Fortnite’s reboot vans without telling players in v14.00.
Published 22 hours agoon September 8, 2020
Epic has once again shipped pretty major changes without telling Fortnite players. They’ve buffed the cooldown between revives on the reboot vans dotted around the map, which will be crucial in the trios competitions this season.
Epic seemingly has a penchant for not telling Fortnite players new changes to the game. They leave it up to the data miners to reveal the “patch notes,” but even then, not all the changes get listed.
While this is fine for most bug fixes, when weapon values or other cooldowns get changed, it can completely shift the meta. The Fortnite devs have managed to do it yet again though after the v14.00 update.
In the major Season 4 update, players were caught up in the hype of Marvel skins, the mythic abilities, the new battle pass, and more. However, smaller gameplay changes were also made that could have a big effect on competitive play.
Reboot vans have reportedly had their cooldown between revives halved from 120 seconds to 60 seconds.
This is obviously a huge buff if you have multiple player cards you need to reboot. Less time spent in one location means you have a higher chance of living, especially when you consider how hotly contested these areas are in trios events.
The buff came at somewhat of a cost. The devs removed Reboot Vans at Authority and Fortilla, meaning there’s less places to try and get your allies back up from. If the storm moves central, or down to the South-East, you could be left in a spot of bother.
Regardless though, it’s probably an overall buff. Losing two reboot vans might have you hamstrung from time to time, but there’s still a dozen dotted across the map. Being able to do two reboots now in the same time as one old one can definitely help you rotate easier with the time saved.
The change does pose a bigger issue though — Epic needs to tell players about these updates. This small detail can change how you play the game massively, and players need to know about it.
Fortnite sharks can be mean enemies in Season 4, but this counter using just a Mythic Item will send them packing.
Published 1 day agoon September 7, 2020
Epic Games have added new Mythic Items to Fortnite Battle Royale in Season 4, and one of them is a perfect counter for sharks in-game.
As you will know by now, sharks can be dangerous foes in the Fortnite world. If you are anywhere near water, even sometimes on land, they can come diving at you with those big old teeth showing.
Catch yourself in their jaw and it could be game over, so knowing what to do when you encounter one is very important for survival. After all, who wants to spend the whole game working their way into the circle only to get eaten in the endgame? Not many players, surely.
It’s actually possible to ride sharks in Fortnite, but it’s a dangerous game. Credit: Epic Games.On September 6, Reddit user u/cobragrad17 showed off what appears to be the best way of killing them yet, and it’s super easy to do.
Using just one item, which is the Mystical Bomb found at Doom’s Domain, you can knock them right back into the water and send them on their way.
The Mythic Item itself is one of a kind, meaning it’s not always easy to get. There’s usually quite a bit of competition to get it as well.
To grab one, you need to eliminate Doctor Doom at Doom’s Domain, and he’s protected by a few henchmen. If you’re going for it, be sure to keep an eye out for his reinforcements. Getting outnumbered would be a nightmare, especially when you consider that Doc has higher a HP bar than a typical enemy.
Grab one and you’re golden for the rest of the game, though. Once you’ve got one, simply hit a shark with the ball and it will send them flying away as the video shows.
No more pesky sharks, and hopefully plenty more wins where they don’t cost you.
