Fortnite Magnifying Glass Guide: Where To Search From The Loading Screen Treasure Map

The challenges for Fortnite Season 8, Week 3 are now live and, among them, is one that asks you to do some detective work--or perhaps pirate work--before you go off into the island hunting for Battle Stars. The challenge in question asks players to "search where the magnifying glass sits on the Treasure Map loading screen." Here's where to go and what to do.

As Fortnite challenges go, it isn't actually all that difficult, though the wording is slightly confusing. What it's asking you to do is take a look at the loading screen artwork, which is of a treasure map. On the map is a magnifying glass, and the area it's focused on is where you need to head to during a match. Specifically, it's southwest of Polar Peaks and east of Frosty Flights.

Head to the grid reference C8 and go to the left side of that quadrant, and you'll spot the Battle Star there. Grab it and and get to work on the remaining challenges so you can inch ever closer to getting the cosmetic unlock of your dreams.

Fortnite Challenges: Destroy Cacti, Treasure Map Search, And More (Season 8, Week 3)

We're now in the fourth week for Fortnite Season 8, which means new challenges are cycling in. As always, you'll need to do these to unlock those oh so precious Battle Stars, which will in turn level up your Battle Pass and make new cosmetics available so you can customize your character. Challenges are split into two categories, with a free set available to everyone playing and a second set exclusive to those that have spent V-Bucks to purchase a Battle Pass.

In the free section, players will need to complete two multi-stage challenges. The first begins by visiting Fatal Fields and Salty Springs in a single match, while the second starts by destroing 30 cacti in the desert. After that, players need to place different Trap Slot items in a match, twice.

In the premium Battle Pass section, the first challenge involves looking at the loading screen and finding where the magnifying glass sits on the treasure map featured in it. After that, players will need to search chests at Sunny Steps or Fatal Fields, deal 500 points of headshot damage to enemies, and get an elimination with an SMG, pistol, and sniper rifle.

We're now in Week 3 of Fortnite: Battle Royale Season 8, which means new challenges are cycling in. As always, you'll need to do these to unlock those oh-so-precious Battle Stars, which will in turn level up your Battle Pass and make new skins and other rewards available so you can customize your character. Challenges are split into two categories, with a free set available to everyone playing and a second set exclusive to those that have spent V-Bucks to purchase a Battle Pass. Here's what to look for from Week 3.

In the free section, players will need to complete two separate multi-stage challenges. The first begins by visiting Fatal Fields and Salty Springs in a single match, while the second starts by destroying 30 cacti in the desert. The third free challenge asks players to place different Trap Slot items in a match, twice--make sure you to place those immediately upon getting them, before anyone can kill you.

In the premium Battle Pass section, the first challenge involves looking at the loading screen and finding where the magnifying glass sits on the treasure map featured in it. Additionally, players will need to search chests at Sunny Steps or Fatal Fields, deal 500 points of headshot damage to enemies, and get an elimination with an SMG, pistol, and sniper rifle (but, luckily, not in the same match).

Stylish New Avengers Endgame Poster Brings All The Heroes Together

With Avengers: Endgame now just over a month away, the Marvel marketing machine is gearing up to hit us with the usual bombardment of promotional material. A thrilling new trailer has been released, and it is accompanied by a striking new poster.

While the previous poster was really just a teaser, this new one reveals all the heroes in truly cosmic style. Unsurprisingly it only features those Avengers who survived the shocking end of last year's Infinity War, including Captain America, Thor, Iron man, Black Widow, and Ant-Man. It also includes Captain Marvel, and shows the villainous Thanos in the background. The poster credits also confirm both Benedict Wong and Jon Favreau will appear in the movie, as Wong and Happy Hogan respectively. Check it out below.

Avengers: Endgame releases on April 26, 2019. It's directed once more Joe and Anthony Russo, and the cast includes Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Paul Rudd, Brie Larsson, Danai Gurira, and Jeremy Renner. There have been rumors that some of the MCU's longest-serving stars might be leaving the series after this film (in particular Evans), but nothing has been confirmed to date. We do know Endgame will be followed by Spider-Man: Far From Home in July.

All you have to do is use the promo code PIDAY19. Only pre-order items are excluded. The sale ends tonight at 8:59 PM PST / 11:59 PM EST.

Left 4 Dead Creator Making New Co-Op Zombie Game

about X hours ago from

Left 4 Dead and Evolve developer Turtle Rock Studios has announced a new co-op zombie shooter to be published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. Back 4 Blood is said to be a premium game that borrows from Turtle Rock's history of making a co-op zombie shooter, while also having a slate of new features and current-gen tech.

The studio released a FAQ with some additional details. It shies away from any commitment like post-launch content or microtransactions, and stresses that Back 4 Blood is a new original IP unrelated to Left 4 Dead. It also says that it will have a campaign and PVP, but it is not a battle royale.

We can also glean some information from how the key figures are talking about the new project. Creative director Phil Robb said the studio is growing its team and using what it's learned from the past for this new project. Meanwhile, design director Chris Ashton stressed that the team has had this project in mind for a long time.

Battlefield 5's Battle Royale Mode, Firestorm, Revealed; Release Date Confirmed

about X hours ago from

Battlefield V's take on battle royale has been much anticipated ever since publisher EA first said it would be jumping on the genre bandwagon. We've finally gotten our first glimpse at Battlefield V's take on the mode of the moment with a new trailer for Firestorm. Take a look below.

Though the below video is our first official look at the mode, another video leaked online just recently, showing off a bunch of the game's modes and the general set up of a match. We now know much of that information was true: Just as in other battle royale games, such as PUBG or Fortnite, each match will begin with players parachuting out of a plane, then scrambling to find weapons and other items to help them survive. The mode will launch on March 25.

EA has previously said that Firestorm will support up to 64 players. Unlike the rest of the game, the mode isn't developed by DICE, but rather Criterion, the studio behind the Need for Speed series. The mode derives its name from the ring of fire that gradually closes in on the battlefield as matches progress. Firestorm will arrive as part of Battlefield V's third chapter of content, Trial by Fire, which kicks off later this month.

New Avengers: Endgame Trailer Is Sad, Exciting, And Awesome

about X hours ago from

The new trailer for Avengers: Endgame is here. The hugely anticipated follow-up to last year's blockbuster Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters next month, and directed once more by the Russo brothers.

The trailer starts much the same as the last one, with Tony Stark floating in space, feeling lonely and regretful. It then shows us a black-and-white montage of the remaining Avengers, all mourning the loss of their colleagues following the shocking climax of Infinity War. But our heroes aren't going to stand by and let Thanos claim victory, so set about forming a plan to bring their friends back. Check it out above.

Avengers: Endgame releases on April 26, 2019. Virtually all the major actors from the MCU are set to return, so that means Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Benedict Cumberbatch, Mark Ruffalo, Elizabeth Olsen, Sebastian Stan, Scarlett Johansson, and so on. It had been rumored that this might be the last Marvel movie for some of the MCU's longest-running stars--in particular Evans--but nothing has been confirmed about their future in the franchise.
