Fortnite guide: everything you need to know to secure a Victory Royale

Fortnite Season X has kicked off and things are getting wild and wacky in the world of Fortnite Battle Royale. The meteor is hanging above the returning Dusty Depot like an annoying fly that won't buzz off, Loot Lake has an anti-gravity zone around it, and Neo Tilted has turned into Tilted Town which is a no-build zone. Enormous mechs called Brutes are new player-controlled vehicles that can cause some serious destruction. We've got absolutely everything you need to know here with our enormous Fortnite guide, which covers everything from missions and challenges to the map and more.

Fortnite review: "Continued to adapt and fight to be one of the best battle royale games"

Score: Four stars

Our Fortnite review charts its rise to being one of the most popular games in the world, which is still managing to draw in over 10 million concurrent players for its live events despite increased competition from the likes of PUBG and Apex Legends. The gunplay may not be the most inspired, and the barrier to entry for new players is getting increasingly high, but if you're looking for a slick and constantly evolving battle royale experience that's so popular it's influencing modern culture, then Fortnite is the place to be.

Can you believe we're 10 seasons in to Fortnite? Season 10 (or Season X if you want to be technically correct!) kicked off recently and introduced a number of changes like Brutes, Missions, Rift Zones and more. We've covered all of the changes and new additions in our Fortnite Season 10 article, so check it out to know what's what before you jump in.

As is always the case with a new season, the Fortnite map has significantly changed and keeps evolving. A Rift Zone has appeared over Tilted and converted the futuristic Neo version to an old-timey western town, which prevents you from building. At the time of writing, we're only two weeks into the new season, so who knows what changes we'll see throughout the rest of it?

Fortnite Missions

Epic has done away with the old battle pass challenges in favour of Fortnite Missions this time, which is similar but rather than being called Week One, Week Two, etc. each one now has a specific theme, with double the amount of challenges to complete within once you prestige the mission. There's a lot of sweet rewards to earn, and we have complete guides for every single challenge this season. That's a lot of challenges and missions!

The game is updating on a regular basis, so if you want to keep up on the latest developments you should follow our Fortnite patch notes guide and always be aware of what's new and what will be coming next.

Fortnite Reboot Van Locations

If you're playing in one of Fortnite's team modes such as Duos or Squads, then elimination does not necessarily mean you're completely out of the game any more. If a teammate grabs the Reboot Card you drop when you're down and out before it disappears, they can take it to one of the Fortnite Reboot Vans found in all named locations and use it to respawn you back into the action - though the process will alert all other players in the vicinity so be ready for a fight.

Fortnite Llama Locations

If you're lucky enough to spot a llama piñata during a match then make a beeline to grab it, as they're super rare and contain lots of useful items and resources. For more information on these elusive llamas and what they contain, visit our Fortnite Llamas locations guide.

Fortnite Creative Codes

With the introduction of Creative Mode, players have been able to construct all sorts of ingenious custom maps - from miniature recreations of the entire island, to adventures filled with puzzles and even a mini golf course! We've been following developments in this area to bring you our selection of the best Fortnite Creative Codes every month.

Fortnite Party Assist

If you're having trouble completing any of the weekly missions, then Fortnite Party Assist could be just what you need to help you reach your target. By selecting one of your challenges from the menu and turning on Party Assist, the actions of your other Party members will count towards that challenge - so buddy up with some friends and you'll be ticking off the requirements fast.

Fortnite 2FA Two-Factor Authentication

It's a sad fact of life on the internet that there will always be bad people trying to steal your information, and Fortnite is not immune from this. If you want to keep your Epic account (and your V-Bucks) safe then make sure you enable Fortnite 2FA - turning on Two-Factor Authentication will also reward you with the epic Boogie Down emote, so it's a win-win situation.

It was introduced a while ago, but if you're wondering how to enable cross platform Fortnite matches, then we can help. Did you know it's possible to play with absolutely anyone else on Fortnite, no matter what platform they're on? Xbox can play with PS4, PC can play with iPhone, and everything in-between. Our guide explains how you can make that happen.

Fortnite Save the World guide

With all the hype surrounding Fortnite Battle Royale, it's easy to forget that there's a whole other PvE game available in Fortnite Save The World. Although Epic have repeatedly stated that this mode will become free to play at some point, for the time being you'll have to invest in a Founder's Pack if you want early access. For those playing right now, here's some help for fighting off the zombie hoards.

Fortnite Save The World Tips

Fortnite Save the World features a whole host of layered menus, systems, and meta-game content, which aren't fully explained by the in-game tutorials and can seem overwhelming, so we've broken things down to make it more manageable.
