Fortnite's New Quadcrasher Vehicle Has Arrived
Build em up. Break em down.
Epic Games has revealed that there's a new vehicle on its way to Fortnite on PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, iOS, and Android. If you boot up the game you'll be greeted with a splash screen with the latest news and, alongside details on the new Disco Domination Limited-Time Mode and the Fortnite Android open-beta, there's an image and description of the Quadcrasher. [Update: Patch 6.10 is now available, introducing the new vehicle.]
This new vehicle seems to have been designed specifically to cause destruction and to that end it has a mean looking snowplow-like front. For good measure Epic has also outfitted it with a special boost ability. "Charge the boost to crash through structures or get some air," reads the description. A specific release date was not shared, but its appearance in the News feed says it's "coming soon." We know update 6.10 is scheduled for release sometime this week, and the Quadcrasher could be coming as part of that.
While we'll have to wait until its available to see the kind of destruction the Quadcrasher can cause, we're betting that it's going to be very useful for ploughing through any structures that other players build. This means that ultra-defensive players will have a rougher time if there's a Quadcrasher in the mix.
Fortnite Season 6, Week 3's challenges are now available and you can take a look at our breakdown to see what you need to do to complete them all. The challenge that stands out as being the trickiest involves completing time trials. We've already done the legwork to hunt down a few of them, so you don't have to. Check out our time trial location guide for all that information.
Halloween is looming, and Epic is getting into the spirit by adding some themed cosmetics to the game. The Skull Trooper skin makes its return with a few extra customization options, there also a Skull Ranger skin for the female character model, the Skull Sickle Harvesting Tool, and the Crypt Cruiser Glider. These are purchasable with V-Bucks from the in-game store. The big ticket item, however, is the Ghost Portal Back bling. To get that you'll need to complete the Skull Trooper Challenges.
When it comes to battle royale titles, Fortnite has some new competition from a big name franchise. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is available today and features Blackout, the series' own spin on the battle royale formula. You can read our Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 review impressions to see what our early impressions of Blackout are.
For a broader look at how today's biggest battle royale titles stack up against each other and an analysis of what makes each one distinct, Michael Higham has put together a feature that compares Fortnite, PUBG, and Blackout.
