A complete guide to the Storm Awakening challenges for Fortnite Season 4.

Fortnite Season 4’s Marvel theme extends to how we’re unlocking different skin variants. Instead of tying them to a general number of challenges, we need to complete specific missions with each hero to unlock their styles.
We’re making our way through the Season 4 Battle Pass roster with guides to each hero’s ‘Awakening’ challenge. Today, we’re covering Storm. Here’s a list of the challenges that you’ll need to complete as well as where you can find them.
- Visit the Weather Station as Storm
- Ride the Steamy Stacks in the storm as Storm
- Emote as Storm at the center of the eye of the storm
The first two challenges are easy enough to complete, although we recommend riding the Steamy Stack in the storm in a match of Team Rumble. The Weather Station should be familiar to all Fortnite players – especially after last season. It was very common for players to land here for a safer shot at Catty Corner.
As for emoting in the center of the zone, it’s best to complete this in Team Rumble as well. Not only will you have more shots to get the emote off, but you’ll know exactly where to go before you land. You probably won’t be alone while doing this one, so keep your head on a swivel.
In case you’re worried about finding the center of the storm, don’t be. You’ll see an icon showing your exactly where to go. You’ll know you’re there when you’re only able to use Storm’s built-in emote in your wheel. Happy hunting!
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 1 day 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.
