Fortnite season 4, week 1 challenge guide: Where to investigate mysterious claw marks

The newest season of Fortnite just dropped, and it’s a collaboration between Epic Games and Marvel — bringing us tons of superheroes we know and love from the Marvel universe. Season 4 comes with lots to do, and in this guide, we’ll cover how to complete the first of Wolverine’s challenges — which requires you to investigate three mysterious claw marks around the map.

Luckily, there are way more than three to find, so you’ve got plenty of options when searching for them. Below, we’ll include screenshots of the three easiest claw marks to find, along with tips to ensure you can get through this challenge as easily as possible. Keep up with these challenges throughout the season, and you’ll eventually unlock Wolverine’s icon skin to use in the game.

Let’s get into how to find three claw marks, and how to initiate the challenge as well, because the game doesn’t specify this, unfortunately.

How to initiate Wolverine’s challenges

Unlike the game’s standard weekly challenges, these aren’t available by default. Instead, you must purchase the Battle Pass for chapter 2, season 4. It costs 950 V-Bucks (the equivalent of less than $8) but will give you lots of goodies, one of which is the ability to complete Wolverine’s challenges. There isn’t any other way to initiate the challenges without purchasing the Battle Pass, so hopefully, you’ve got enough V-Bucks sitting around, or you’ll have to shell out some real money.

Once you do get the Battle Pass, head to the Battle Pass menu, and you’ll see a list of Wolverine’s challenges. As of the writing of this guide, there’s only one, since it just went live. Here, you’ll be able to keep track of all the Wolverine challenges throughout the season.

Finding three claw marks

You’ll find the mysterious claw marks in the Weeping Woods area of the map, to the southwest of The Authority. As mentioned above, there are more than just three sets of claw marks available, but you only need to find three. Below, we’ll list the easiest ones to find — they’re all within close proximity of one another and can be gathered in around a minute.

Start by landing in the southern area of the Weeping Woods, and make your way north. To investigate the claw marks, all you have to do is approach them, and the game will give you credit. Make sure you actually get credit for claw marks before progressing. Also, since this challenge just went up, you’ll want to be cautious of other players looking to complete it as well. Weeping Woods is now a much busier area than before, so bring a friend or two to make your life easier.

Upon completion of this challenge, you’ll unlock the Berserker Barrage! Spray.

First claw marks — side of RV

Approach the northeastern RV, and you’ll see the claw marks on the west side of it.

Second claw marks — rock by the pond

Head west from the previous set to the nearby pond located in front of the cabins. You’ll see a few boulders with a set of claw marks on the boulder closest to the water.

Third claw marks — west side of the cabin

The final set is found on the west side of the northernmost cabin. This set of claw marks is slightly hidden, so look out for them next to an AC unit on the outside wall of the cabin.

A list of all the Fortnite augments, and how to use them

Every new chapter of Fortnite is a massive event. While seasonal changes bring plenty of minor tweaks and additions, it's almost always when a new chapter rolls around that major overhauls or new mechanics are introduced. Fortnite Chapter 4 was no exception, and aside from the extreme changes the island underwent, it brought one very important change to gameplay that wmakes a huge difference when going for that illusive victory royal (it isn't easy to win Fortnite, after all).

Augments, well, augment the game. There are a few challenges that somewhat introduce what these are, but they leave out almost all the important details for you to find out on your own. Augments need to be considered, and deeply understood, not only for when you get them yourself but to know what new tricks your opponents could have up their sleeves. Before you get taken by surprise, here's a complete breakdown of how to unlock augments and how they work in Fortnite.
What are augments in Fortnite?
Augments, or Reality Augments, are essentially a new perk system introduced into Fortnite. There are currently 22 augments in the game, but with more to come in future updates. You can get access to multiple augments during a single match, but augments do not carry over after a match is finished, whether you win or lose. These perks can range from modifying certain weapon types to granting buffs for performing actions, and much more. There are no bad augments, so you will want to get as many as possible. Augments also have their own tab in your menu where you can see which ones you've had so far to track your progress using them all.

New characters from Fortnite Chapter 4, Season 2.

Surviving in Fortnite and securing a Victory Royale takes skill and luck. Getting better at Fortnite requires a knowledge of the playing field and a drive to outlast your opponents, but none of that matters if you aren't picking up the right weapons. Building a loadout that suits your playstyle and managing your inventory as the match progresses is key to snagging a win. You don't want to be caught in a long-range battle against someone on a mountaintop without a solid rifle on hand, and you certainly don't want to find yourself inside a close-quarters building without an SMG or shotgun.

Our guide to the best weapons in Fortnite breaks down rarity types and what they mean, the most effective arms in each weapon category, and tips for how to use them. Chapter 4, Season 2 brought a lengthy list of changes to the Fortnite arsenal -- including new weapons and the return of some fan favorites.

Characters on Ashika Island in Warzone 2.0.

Now that Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 Season 2 has been out for a little while, we've got a better sense of the game's weapon meta. There are some clear winners that carry over from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II, but there are other top-tier weapons that might surprise you in battle royale. Of course, the weapon meta constantly shifts as Activision updates the way firearms perform, so we'll make sure to keep this up to date with each new patch.

These are the best Warzone 2.0 weapons for Season 2, categorized by weapon type. Keep in mind, some categories will be skipped, as they don't have any viable -- let alone meta -- options at the moment.
