Fortnite challenge guide: Enter the Zero Point

During Fortnite’s season 5, week 13, you’ll come across a new set of challenges to get through — all of which will grant you a decent amount of XP. One of the last ones on your radar will likely be the challenge that requires you to enter the Zero Point. Though completing this one is quick and easy, you might not know what (or where) the Zero Point is. In addition, there are prerequisites to complete before attempting this challenge. This one is part of Deadfire’s stage 3, meaning you need to finish the first two stages before moving onto this one.

The first stage requires you to deal 300 damage with a pistol, so head into a Team Rumble match to get that one knocked out. Then, stage 2 requires you to bathe in the Purple Pool at Steamy Stacks. Do that and then you’ll be ready to enter the Zero Point as part of stage 3. In this guide, we’ll show you how to enter the Zero Point in Fortnite.

How to enter the Zero Point

After you’ve finished the first two stages of Deadfire’s challenges, you’ll be set to complete stage 3, which requires you to enter the Zero Point. This spot is not marked on the map, but you should be familiar with its location if you’ve played throughout season 5. The Zero Point is the floating orb in the dead center of the map, above the purple crystals (in between Colossal Coliseum and Salty Towers). Check the map above for reference (thanks, It’s found in the air right in the middle and can only be reached by gliding into it.

For this reason, we highly recommend attempting this challenge in Team Rumble so you’ll have multiple opportunities to glide into it. If you do this in Battle Royale, you have to enter the Zero Point on your first attempt; otherwise, you’ll need to boot up a new match if you miss the objective.

In Team Rumble, you spawn in the air after you get eliminated, meaning you’ll have several chances to glide into the objective. Once you do glide into it, you’ll get a short cinematic, and it’ll then spit you out. Don’t worry, the Zero Point won’t damage you or anything like that. You might have a little trouble getting to the Zero Point depending on where the Battle Bus spawns you, but if you deploy your parachute right away, you should have plenty of time to reach your objective.

Once you land inside the Zero Point, you’ll gain credit for this challenge and you’ll earn 20,000 XP for your troubles. Just remember, you need to complete the first two stages of Deadfire’s challenges to be able to pursue this one.

Fortnite is coming back to iOS, but Epic Games still isn’t happy about it

Fortnite is set to come back to iOS in Europe sometime in 2024. This will mark the first time a natively running version of Fortnite will be available on iOS since Apple removed the game from the App Store in 2020.

Apple did so at the time because Epic tried to use its own third-party payment system, kicking off a series of legal battles in an attempt to get Apple to open up its platform more. Although those legal battles have yielded mixed results for Epic, a newly passed Digital Markets Act in the European Union is forcing Apple to do things like "allow third parties to inter-operate with the gatekeeper’s own services in certain specific situations" and "allow their business users to promote their offer and conclude contracts with their customers outside the gatekeeper’s platform."

Harmonix revealed that the January 25 DLC tracks for Rock Band 4 will be the final new ones added to the game.

This ends a streak of more than eight years of weekly DLC for the rhythm game. Ever since Rock Band 4 was released in October 2015, new DLC songs have been made available for purchase every week, giving the game one of the most impressive live service tails in the industry. Ultimately, Harmonix says it will have released nearly 3,000 songs as DLC for Rock Band 4 after the final content drop next week, and that live service support for seasons and online play will "continue as normal" after next week.

The best battle royale games
Jonesy running in Fortnite.

Ever since PUBG made the genre mainstream, The battle royale genre has only continued to maintain its momentum. The basic concept is simple -- dozens of players are placed on a map and fight it out until only one remains standing. It's led to countless different games offering their own take on the formula.

The Culling introduced crafting weaponry, and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds slowed down the action with its stealth and precision shooting. Eventually, the genre expanded to include games that look drastically different from each other, and it can be overwhelming to choose one. Fortunately, we’re here to help! These are the best battle royale games.
