They’re mixing things up on Fortnite, this time hosting an XP Xtravaganza. This marks a new set of challenges that all award you with a significant amount of XP upon completion. One challenge that might be tripping you up requires you to eliminate opponents by using superpowers. The game doesn’t specify how to do this, so we’ll cover everything you’ll need to know about it in this guide, including tips and tricks to make it easier for you.

Here’s how to use superpowers to eliminate enemies in Fortnite.

The easiest way to go about this challenge is to boot up a Marvel Knockout match. This pits trios against one another who all spawn in with random superpowers. Depending on the powers you get, this challenge can range in difficulty, but even if you don’t have the best luck, you can still rack up eliminations. If you aren’t confident in your abilities, you’ll be happy to know that even eliminations made by your teammates will count toward your total, so you can play a support role and still complete this challenge.

For us, we had better luck using long-range powers, like Iron Man’s blasts. We sometimes would spawn in with Wolverine’s claws, which are only effective at close range. If you happen to get this, you’ll probably have a harder time gathering eliminations, and you might have to rely on finishing off opponents who are already damaged. You’ll also usually get a high damage power that’s mapped to the right shoulder button (R1 on PS4, RB on Xbox One, and R on Nintendo Switch). Try to be at least somewhat familiar with the various powers so you’re prepared when you attempt this challenge. Here’s a video of us gaining an elimination with Wolverine’s claws:

We got kind of lucky with the elimination above, due to the enemy being AFK, but you can at least get the gist of how its done.

The main thing to note is that XP Xtravaganza features multi-tiered challenges, offering XP for each stage you complete. In this case, there are three stages you need to overcome: Eliminating one enemy with a superpower, followed by three, and finally, seven. Unfortunately, you can’t get all 11 eliminations in a single match. You have to either finish a match or back out to the main menu so the first stage will register before the game will let you begin the second stage, and so on.

In other words, you can gain credit for stage one, immediately back out and boot up another match, gain credit for stage two, back out again, and finish up stage three. Because of this, you’ll have to play at least three matches in order to complete the challenge — possibly more if you don’t manage to complete one stage per match. At least your progress is cumulative, meaning your eliminations will save and you can pick up where you left off in a new match.

Since Fortnite is a living, breathing game, sometimes Marvel Knockout is not be available. If this is the case, you’ll have to attempt it in a regular mode like Solos, Duos, or Squads. To gain a superpower in these modes, you’ll need to take out one of the various heroes/villains around the map. These are characters like Iron Man, Wolverine, or Doctor Doom. We advise to take out Doctor Doom, as he’s the easiest character to defeat. You might want to let your team know you’re going for this challenge so they can help you take down the hero/villain.

Nonetheless, after they’re down, they’ll drop a superpower that corresponds to them. Equip it, and you can then use it to take down enemies. You’ll probably notice that this method is a lot harder to actually pull off eliminations with superpowers, since it requires so much more effort and features so many more variables.

Because of that, we recommend making a beeline for this challenge in Marvel Knockout as soon as you can, so you won’t have to worry about that mode disappearing. Either way, once you’ve completed all three stages of the challenge by eliminating 11 opponents, you’ll be all set.

Every time Fortnite changes up the map, it becomes a whole new experience when checking out the new points of interest (POIs) and best places to land. With chapter 5 bringing some of the most dramatic changes in the map's history, a ton of secrets are out there on the island waiting to be discovered, such as a very lucrative cave. Those who have managed to wander into this hidden alcove have been rewarded with a huge stash of loot, making it a well-guarded secret among those in the know. We can't guarantee you'll survive long enough to grab all the valuables inside, but knowing where the secret cave is will at least give you and your squad a fighting chance.

Fortnite Reality Augments: full list and how to use them
Fortnite Zero Builds key art.

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 makes a huge difference when going for that elusive 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 a new perk system introduced into Fortnite. There are currently 20 augments in the game, but there are 32 total that cycle in and out with each Season. 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.
