Fortnite Rocket Racing: how its Ranked system works

Ranking systems are common in most competitive games, but they all work a little differently, even if they use the same basic terminology and structure. Fortnite‘s Rocket Racing will have you rising up various ranks as you complete more races and quests, but this has a greater impact on your game than simply what little icon is next to your name. Here’s a full explanation on how the ranking system works in Fortnite Rocket Racing.

Rocket Racing ranks explained

The basics of how the Fortnite Rocket Racing ranking system works is that each season will rank you based on how well you do in races and how many points you earn during those races. You will start each season at Bronze I, but can slowly progress up to the highest rank of Unreal. Here’s a full list of all the ranks.

As touched on, ranking into new tiers gives you more than just a new little icon. Each tier you reach unlocks more maps you can race on up until Diamond. You will also be facing more skilled players since ranks double as a matchmaking system that pairs you with people around your ranking. If you hit the Unreal rank, your name will then show up on the Global Leaderboards.

Playing in a party still lets you earn points and rank up, but your party will be matched against other players who are at a similar level to the highest-level player in your team. So if you’re a Bronze player with a friend in Elite, you might want to play solo for a bit before pitting yourself against players who are too high above your level.

Every year when the new Call of Duty title drops, the playing field is once again reset as everyone needs to start grinding back up the ranks. Fully embracing the RPG elements, Modern Warfare 3 once again allows you to earn XP as you play match after match to rank up your character, with each rank not only bringing you closer to hitting prestige but also unlocking new options for your chosen operator. Your player rank is unique from your weapon levels and can take a lot longer to grind if you don't know the most efficient methods. If you want to fast-track your career through the ranks, here are the fastest ways to earn XP in Modern Warfare 3.
How to earn XP fast in Modern Warfare 3
There's basically no way you can play Modern Warfare 3 without earning XP, but some modes and methods can earn you double (or more) what you could if you were just playing without a plan.
Play the objective

We all love playing team deathmatch or any other mode where all you need to worry about is being the one to shoot first. However, if you want to earn that sweet XP fast, you need to choose one of the objective modes like Domination, Hardpoint, Ground War, or even Kill Confirmed. Not only do you get XP for killing enemies, but the amount you get on top of that for playing the objective can make up the bulk of your XP gain. This is especially true if you're not at the top of your game and end up dying more than you kill since you have another method to contribute. Also, objective modes grant you an XP bonus just for finishing the match.

Xbox has no plans to make its own handheld system, per leaked documents
The Logitech G Cloud Gaming Handheld sits on a stack of comics.

As part of the massive Xbox leak that came as part of its FTC trial, we got a look at Microsoft's road map for Xbox through 2030. One slide of this presentation outlines the kinds of hardware possible for Microsoft to make (and not make) itself. Most notably, Microsoft states in this document that making a dedicated Xbox handheld is "not in scope for first party."

Microsoft has been an avid supporter of devices like the Logitech G Cloud Gaming Handheld and ROG Ally with Xbox Cloud Gaming, but it was still quite surprising that the company never aimed to release a handheld that competed with those and Nintendo Switch itself. Now, we know that as far back as this May 2022 roadmap, Microsoft did not believe it currently has the resources and scope to make a Handheld.

Anyone who plays Fortnite long enough will come to love its yearly summer festivities, and as usual, this year's Summer Escape Event has proven to be a great time for players looking to engage in fun quests and earn new cosmetics. This week provides a new quest that tasks you with destroying 10 stones in battle royale mode, which offers you the reward of a new harvesting tool known as the Artifact Axe. If you're wondering what qualifies as a stone and how to destroy them, we'll give you the details below.
How to destroy stones in Fortnite to earn the Artifact Axe
First of all, you've probably hidden behind some of these stones before because, well, the game is actually just referring to the large rocks you can find scattered all across the map. Some are larger than others, but they're all easily identifiable and can be destroyed by smacking them repeatedly with a harvesting tool. In other words, you're quite likely to run across plenty of them playing naturally, especially if you spend any time in forests or along the coast.

If you're wanting to know of a spot that will help you knock the quest out quicker, you can try heading to the beach to the south of Kenjutsu Crossing at the bottom of the map.
