How to drive a boat from The Fortilla to The Authority in less than four minutes

The first thing you should do is boot up a match in Team Rumble — that way, you can respawn if you die. It’s also easier to see in Team Rumble, as Battle Royale is currently covered in a thick fog during the game’s Fortnitemares event. Land at The Fortilla (located to the southwest of the map) and look for a speed boat. There are multiple in this area, so even if most of your team decides to go for the challenge, you’ll still probably be able to find a boat for yourself. We had luck finding a boat in the center island of this area, but there are several other boats around it.

Next, you should be familiar with the path you need to take to get to The Authority (which is labeled as “The Ruins” during this Fortnitemares event). The Authority is the island in the center of the map and can be accessed by boat from The Fortilla. First, make your way to the north side of Slurpy Swamps and take the path through Weeping Woods. If you keep going east, you’ll dead end at The Authority. Keep in mind, you don’t even need to get out of the boat for the challenge to register.

Here’s a video of us reaching the goal in under two minutes.

As long as you stay in the water and follow the path while continuously mashing the boost button (Circle on PS4, B on Xbox One, and A on Nintendo Switch), getting there within four minutes shouldn’t be an issue. Remember, there are other paths you can take to reach The Authority from The Fortilla, but if you go through Slurpy Swamp and Weeping Woods, you’ll get there faster. It’s also worth noting that this challenge stacks with the other one for traveling 20,000 meters in a vehicle, so you should attempt this challenge while you go for the other. Once you roll up to The Authority, you’ll gain credit for completing the challenge and will be rewarded with 25,000 XP for your troubles.

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.

The best Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 weapons for Season 2
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.
