Epic iOS update has fans speculating about a Fortnite Apple return

An update to Fortnite on iOS has led fans to speculate that the game will return to Apple devices, although some disagree.

Since the lawsuit between Apple and Epic games began, Fortnite hasn’t been available on iOS devices but an update suggests it could return to iPhone and iPad.

Fortnite coming to mobile was a massive step forward for the mobile gaming community, with a Triple-A studio giving continuous support for a complete port of one of the world’s biggest shooters.

However, Epic Games have been in a legal battle with Apple since August. Epic added a ‘direct payment’ option so microtransactions bypass specific platforms. Apple said that this violated their terms of service and removed Fortnite from iOS devices.

However, a small hotfix on January 5 which focused on Fortnite iOS has led to much speculation over the future of Fortnite on iPhone and iPad.

Fortnite ‘direct payment’ removed

In the January 5 update, Epic removed the direct payment button, the very thing that started the legal battle. This has led fans to speculate that Fortnite will be returning to Apple devices.

The removal has led to much debate on Twitter. Many reliable leakers reported on the update such as ShiinaBR and HYPEX, although they aren’t confident we can glean much from this.

Another Fortnite leaker, Lucas7yoshi, shared a message from Epic employee MagmaReef, who claims that the removal was a mistake.

Popular leaker HYPEX also claimed that the removal of this feature doesn’t mean anything. However, there doesn’t appear to be any official evidence either way. Neither Epic Games nor Apple have made a statement, and it’s unlikely they will until the lawsuit has concluded.

With conflicting information coming in from every angle, all fans can do for now is speculate and hope there is light at the end of the tunnel for iOS Fortnite players.

Fortnite leaks reveal more Season 6 vehicle mods

Fortnite Season 6 saw the introduction of vehicle mods, with leaks suggesting some interesting future options for your vehicle.

New Fortnite leaks have been revealed speculating some upcoming vehicle mods to compliment the already well-received Chonkers off-road tires.

Fortnite Season 6 saw the introduction of the previously teased vehicle mods, with some leaks suggesting additional interesting options for you to customize your vehicle.

Fortnite’s Update v16.20 saw the introduction of the first vehicle mod, the Chonkers-offroad tires, that helps traction and handling when players tackle off-road terrain. However, there could soon be some other interesting mods coming into the game soon.

Fortnite season 6 vehicle mods

Fortnite data miner, @Hypex, took to Twitter to reveal “2 more unreleased car mods categories.” The categories will include Front Bumpers and Rear Bumpers.

One item in Front Bumpers is the “Scoop,” which is most likely a feature that will allow players to destroy structures effortlessly and scoop enemies. The other mod found in the files is for the Rear Bumpers called the “Mega Booster,” which is probably some kind of rocket-powered boost that will increase the velocity of the car.

Hypex also mentioned a mounted gun, which could also be a Rear Bumper mod that will see players hopping on the back of vehicles to gun opponents down.

The most interesting aspect of these leaks, however, is the mention of “interactable mod garages,” which could potentially be some sort of station that players can mod their cars in. This does some fairly outlandish, especially considering that in the current version of Fortnite, players can find mods on the ground and simply attach them to vehicles.

However, a modding station may be useful for those who are unable to find this loot on the ground, or if players are just looking for a particular mod.

Either way, this all sounds exciting and could be implemented in the current season of Fortnite. If you were interested in this article, why not check out our guide on Fortnite Season 6 Week 5 challenges.

Fortnite Season 6 Week 5 Quests

The challenges will release on April 15, but thanks to leakers in the community, we can see the challenges ahead of their release.

Here’s the full list of Fortnite Season 6 Week 5 Quests:

  • Deal damage with SMGs (1000)
  • Search ammo boxes (5)
  • Use a campfire (1)
  • Modify vehicles with off-road tires (3)
  • Drive from Sweaty Sands to Colossal Crops without leaving the vehicle (1)
  • Maintain a speed of 65 or greater for 4 seconds in a vehicle (1)
  • Get 2 seconds of airtime in a vehicle (2)

These challenges are simple for the most part and can be completed by regularly play. We recommend completing these challenges in Team Rumble, as the competition is less fierce and you’ll have more opportunities to complete them.

To equip the off-road tires, you can follow our guide on how to mod vehicles in Season 6. Once you’ve equipped the tires, you can complete the other vehicle-based challenge like driving from Sweaty Sands to Colossal Crops without leaving the vehicle. Getting two seconds of air time may be difficult, but you can always build yourself a ramp.

There is also a Legendary quest to complete for extra XP where you’ll need to find 5,000 Gold Bars. You’ll get XP for every 1000 found, so this challenge is well worth completing. You won’t be able to complete this in Team Rumble alone, but you can follow our guide on how to earn Gold Bars in Fortnite.

That’s everything for Week 4! Make sure to get as much Gold as you can and spend some time in vehicles and you’ll have them completing before next week’s release.

Chonkers in Fortnite Season 6

Epic Games have finally brought vehicle modifications to Fortnite in Chapter 2 Season 6 so that you can upgrade cars with different add-ons, and here’s everything you need to know about this.

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 6 has quickly won over fans with its various new additions, including weapon crafting, tamable wild animals, and a whole new set of quests in the new Battle Pass. Now, Epic Games have added another neat feature.

Modified vehicles had been teased by leakers a while back, and a few fans noticed their presence in trailers for the new season. Now, the v16.20 update, has finally brought vehicle mods to the battle royale.

What do Fortnite Chonkers tires do?

The first vehicle mods to be released in Fortnite are new tires known as Chonkers, and these let you ride up steep surfaces such as hills. They also provide you with a better grip and bouncy suspension when driving off-road.

Additionally, once you’ve found a pile of these tires, you can use them for cover during combat situations where enemies have surrounded you. This makes them worth chasing after the next time you acquire a vehicle.

Where to find Chonkers in Fortnite

These modifications can be found within some new structures that have appeared at various garages around The Island. You’ll be able to acquire at least one of these tires by visiting any of the various gas stations.

Luckily, these are spread out all over the map, and once you visit them, you can find Chonkers either lying on the floor or among stacks of tires. You take a look at their locations below:

How to use Chonkers tires in Fortnite

Now that you know where to find the Chonkers tires in Fortnite, you’ll just need to know how to use them. Luckily they’re fairly easy to put together if you know where they are, and all you need is a vehicle to modify.

Once you’ve acquired a car, here’s what you need to do:

  1. Visit the garage at Catty Corner, and enter the building where Sparkplug spawns
  2. Find the Chonkers tires lying on the ground and pick them up.
  3. Hold aim and throw the Chonkers tires directly at your car.

That’s all there is to it! Now, you’ll be able to enjoy traveling off-road and up steep surfaces such as hills with relative ease. These new tires have different behavior on dirt, grass, or the road, which makes them difficult for enemies to pop.

Epic Games will also add more vehicle mods in Fortnite Season 6 soon, and those will have different effects on your vehicles. A few leakers have previously hinted at the future arrival of Mounted Guns in the game at some point.

We’ll keep checking for the locations of more garages that contain vehicle mods, and will update this guide as soon as we find them.

In the meanwhile, the v16.20 update has also brought new bows, and a Duos cup that you can participate in to unlock Aloy from Horizon Zero Dawn for completely free!
