Guides Live Now

Ahead of the challenges going live in-game tomorrow, we've added links to in depth guides for the tougher weekly challenges.

You can check out the links in the list of challenges down below.

16.30 Update

Last week saw the 16.20 update come to the game, bringing vehicle mods and other additions to the game.

Since the update was last week it means the 16.30 update won't be until at least next week.

But, we may see a small patch, possibly the 16.21 update which could make small changes to the game.

The Recycler was added outside of the 16.20 update so Epic Games could be planning something similar to keep players on their toes.

Week 6 Challenges

Along with the 16.20 update came the week 5 and week 6 challenges.

The week 5 challenges went live last week and we can expect the week 6 challenges to go live this week on Thursday at 9am EST/2pm BST.

Check out the week 6 challenges below.

But, you need to be quick because the Legendary Quest will only be in the game for one week before disappearing.

The series will run from April-July with new issues being released every two weeks.

You can check out the comics here.

Solo Rumble Siphon

Team Rumble has become a key part of Fortnite, offering a casual team deathmatch type mode for players that just want high action fun with respawning turned on.

Recently Epic Games has released a solo version called Solo Rumble Siphon.

As the name suggests, siphon has been enabled, granting players 50 health for each elimination.

The game ends when a player reaches 60 eliminations.

So far the mode has gotten great feedback and it would be great to see this mode added to the game permanently alongside Team Rumble for those players that enjoy the game's mechanics but are getting bored of Battle Royale.

Dreamhack Open Delayed

Dreamhack is one of the most popular esport hosts in the world and throughout 2021 they are hosting monthly Fortnite tournaments with a $250,000 prize pool for each event.

Unfortunately, April's Dreamhack tournament has now been delayed until May.

In a tweet it was revealed that the tournament had been delayed due to integrity concerns, this could mean a participant may have cheated or colluded with another player, but there has been no confirmation as to the reason.
