Fortnite Season 4 Week 5 is here, bringing us some new challenges to complete for the week. XP is flowing this season, but don’t get complacent. Unlocking the Holographic Wolverine style will require you to reach level 220 – a tall order for even the most dedicated Fortnite player.
This week, there are a few challenges that require a bit of existing Fortnite knowledge to complete. One of these is “Make a Stark Robot dance.” Don’t worry, though, this is easy to check off your list once you know what to do.
The first step in this process is finding a Stark Robot. Yes, you can find plenty of them at Stark Industries, but that’s probably not a good place to do this challenge. It’s one of the most populated places on the map and Stark Robots don’t spawn in Team Rumble.
Instead, we suggest heading for one of the Quinjet landing sites on the map. You can usually find one that’s devoid of players, but be careful that the Stark Robots don’t take you out on their own.
The best strategy is to land somewhere near the Quinjet, get a couple of guns, and head to the landing site from there. That way, you’ll be able to defend yourself from those pesky robots.
Now that you’ve found an untouched landing site, all you need to do is down one of the stark robots and hack them. You can do this by going up to them and pressing F on keyboard, Square on PS4, or X on Xbox. We recommend clearing out the other robots before trying to hack one.
Once you’ve hacked a robot and are safe, the final stage is to dance. The robot will dance with you and you’ll complete the challenge. You don’t even have to wait for the robot if you don’t want. The challenge will complete itself as soon as you dance with a hacked robot by your side.
Hacking robots in Fortnite is sneakily an awesome tactic. They fight by your side, distract your opponents, and can sometimes even do enough damage to get a kill or two. Good luck!
This Fortnite theory has us returning to the old map in Season 5.

We’re into the back half of Season 4, which means that it’s time to speculate as to how the season will end and how the next season will begin. Galactus is getting closer to the Fortnite island with each passing day, and we can only guess as to what will happen when he finally arrives.
Several Fortnite theorists have presented the idea that Season 4 may usher us back to the old Fortnite map in one way or another – whether Galactus succeeds in his effort to destroy the Chapter 2 map or not.
One reason for this is the timing. Yes, we have only gone through four seasons of Fortnite, but those four seasons have lasted for over a year. We’ve been on this Chapter 2 map for a while, so it would make a decent amount of sense to send us back to the old one – at least, for a season or two.
Reddit user, u/SvenWillNeverDie420, took things a bit further, however – drawing from some in-game clues. A closer look at Tony Stark’s Battle Bus schematic shows something that looks an awful lot like the Black Hole that sent us to the new map in the first place.
What if this Black Hole was actually a wormhole? What if this is the key to the connection between the two maps – waiting to be discovered by one of the smartest men in any universe: Tony Stark?
This theory is further amplified by the meaning of the word “nexus,” along with Donald Mustards preseason tweet, telling fans that, “It’s ALL connected.” The Nexus sphere appears to exist on both Fortnite maps. This is, after all, why Galactus is coming in the first place.

As you can see from the graphic, above, SvenWillNeverDie420 took this all to mean that there may be two playable maps next season. We think that it’s more likely that players will be sent back to the Chapter 1 map, exclusively – possibly on the back of Tony Stark’s new Battle Bus.
Of course, this is only a theory and we won’t know anything until the season finally ends. One thing’s for sure: Epic are setting us up to close the season with a massive event that could change how we look at Fortnite, forever.
Wolverine’s built-in emote is deleting inventory items in all Fortnite game modes.

After much anticipation, October 1 brought us out first chance to play as Wolverine in Fortnite. You’ll need to complete all of the challenges and find and kill Wolverine – a surprisingly tall task – but all of this will reward you his skin and some additional styles.
All of the Marvel heroes in Season 4 have specific built-in emotes. Wolverine is no different, but players soon noticed an issue with Wolverine’s emote. When you used it in Save the World, it would delete one of your items.
The Fortnite Status Twitter account even acknowledged the problem and warned people not to use Wolverine’s emote in this game mode.
Unfortunately, later in the day, some Battle Royale players began to notice the same problem. One player took a clip of the bug, which was later shared by data miner, iFireMonkey.
In the clip, you can see the player use Wolverine’s emote – only to have the Wolverine ability disappear from their inventory. We have no idea why this is happening, but it doesn’t appear to be isolated to Save the World.
This glitch can be particularly problematic for controller and console players, who often keep an AR or shotgun in their first slot. One, simple emote could remove one of the most necessary items from your loadout.
For now, all we can do is advise players not to use Wolverine’s build-in emote in any mode. We’ll keep you posted when Epic have a fix for this bug.
A new Fortnite leak suggests that Midas and his Henchmen could be returning as undead NPCs during this year’s Fortnitemares event.

Although we haven’t seen him in the game for months, Midas might be the most important character in all of Chapter 2. Like The Visitor from Chapter 1, his actions created ripples that we’re still experiencing to this day.
One of the most interesting Fortnite theories even positions Midas as one of the only self-aware AI programs within Battle Royale. If this is true, then it makes his death by shark attack at the beginning of Season 3 that much more tragic.
Of course, Midas and his legend continue to live on in the Battle Royale universe. This season, Epic introduced the rare Midas Flopper, which turns your entire inventory gold once caught and consumed.
It’s clear that we haven’t seen the last of Midas. In fact, Epic even announced that he would be coming back as a skin in their Last Laugh bundle later this year. Judging by his new outfit, it looks like Midas may have gotten his hands on one of Tony Stark’s Iron Man suits.
Based on a recent leak, however, it would appear as though Midas will be coming back to Fortnite sooner than we originally thought. According to data miners Hypex and Intercelluar, there are unused NPCs in the Fortnite game files. One of them is Midas, himself.
As Hypex acknowledges, this is probably for the upcoming Forntitemares event. Midas will, reportedly, be accompanied by Ghostly Ghost Henchmen, carrying ARs, Pump Shotguns, SMGs, and Pumpkin Launchers. Midas, for his part, will have 100 HP and 350 Shields. He’s carrying a Gold Scar in the game files, which could change but will likely replace his patented Mythic Drum Gun.
This is all of the information we have right now, but we can speculate a bit based on what we know. We’re guessing that Midas and his Ghostly Ghost Henchmen will be haunting The Authority – build where The Agency once stood. They may even close the vault and drop a keycard for players to use.
All signs point to Midas coming back for a limited time, but this doesn’t mean he’ll be dead forever. We expect Midas to continue to play a massive role in the Chapter 2 storyline – potentially starting with his rebirth during Fortnitemares 2020.
