Where to find payphones

Payphone locations in Fortnite.

The biggest hurdle of this challenge is simply finding a payphone. They all spawn in fixed locations, which is great, but they aren’t in the most obvious places. In the map above (thanks,, you’ll find all the payphone locations in the current season. As you can see, they tend to be located around the outer edge of the map, so if you’re someone who is looking for them toward the end of a match, they might already be out of zone.

That’s why we advise visiting a payphone right away, if possible. Pick a payphone that is sort of out of the way from the path of the Battle Bus, so you don’t run into an enemy player. Despite payphones being tied to challenges, they aren’t typically as busy as you’d expect. And to make things easier, we advise attempting this in Team Rumble so you can respawn if you get eliminated before you interact with the payphone.

Another great tip is to let your team know you’re going for this challenge so they can watch your back as you attempt it. This can be an easy way to ensure you don’t get eliminated before you can interact with the payphone. Just try to get your hands on a weapon first so you can defend yourself from any nearby enemies.

As for accepting Slone’s orders, all you have to do is interact with one of the above payphones. Press Square on PlayStation, X on Xbox, and Y on Nintendo Switch to interact, and you’ll need to go through a couple menu options to accept the orders. That’s all there is to it. You don’t need to actually complete Slone’s orders — simply accepting them will do the trick. After you’ve done that, you’ll earn credit for completing the challenge and get 15,000 battle pass XP for your troubles.

Warzone 2.0’s ranked mode fixes my biggest battle royale pet peeve
Characters from Warzone 2.0 in the ranked mode.

As part of the Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 Season 3 Reloaded update, Activision finally added a long-awaited Ranked mode. While the mode plays almost exactly like standard battle royale on Al Mazrah, it has a number of minor differences that give it an edge. Though there's one feature in particular that stands out, as it fixes one of my biggest pet peeves in the battle royale genre.

In Ranked, players are discouraged from quitting partway through a match, giving squads a better chance of coming out on top. Placement is key in the mode, and you aren't going to place high if your squad leaves you partway through. To support that idea, players are heavily penalized for quitting a match early. The whole premise of the mode is to climb the ranks, so it's not worth losing Skill Rating (SR) points for quitting before the match is over.

Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 has struggled to retain players due to odd gameplay decisions and controversial mechanics that have divided the community. A new feature, though, has players especially up in arms.

Recently, publisher Activision released an in-game store bundle that some players consider a "pay-to-win" option, stirring up criticism once again. The paid bundle, "Roze and Thorn," gives DMZ players a free unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) that temporarily reveals the locations of enemy players at the start of a match, immediately offering an advantage.
