The new changes include a brand-new POI, some new skins, and a brand-new crossbow for players to use in combat. Here’s a breakdown of all the new content in the Fortnite 18.10 update patch notes.
New Crossbow: Dual Fiend Hunters
Notable Fortnite leaker HYPEX revealed that a new Crossbow known as the Dual Fiend Hunters has been added to the game. This weapon shoots an arrow that deals heavy damage to Fiends.
Despite the slow fire rate and reload speed, the weapon is still impressive due to its notable damage and magazine size. Four different variants have been revealed, and each of them deals a different amount of damage.
Cube Town POI
Fortnite Season 8 is titled “Cubed,” and it has lived up to the name with the addition of various small purple cubes on the Island. We’ve also seen the addition of the Golden Cube in this season.

Now, a new POI known as Cube town has arrived on the Island and is said to contain many chests for players to unlock. You might find it aesthetically similar to something in Minecraft.
New Cube at Steamy Stacks
The Steamy Stacks POI has gone through a major change after a long while. A chunk of it has been destroyed and there is a giant purple Cube now marking the location.
It seems to have broken out of the facility and dragged itself across the field next to the POI. This change fits perfectly with Season 8’s theme.
Chili Chug Splash
A new variation of the Chug Splash item called the Chili Chug Splash has arrived in the update. Using this will restore 20 Health or Shield while also providing you with a speed boost.
You can acquire the Chili Chug Splashes by purchasing it from The Brat NPC with Gold Bars. This item can also be dropped by Loot Llamas, and Epic Games have brought back the original Chug Splash to the loot pool.
Fortnite Super Level Styles for Battle Pass skins
Epic Games add rare variations of the Battle Pass skins every season, and you can normally unlock these by surpassing Level 100. The v18.10 update has brought Season 8’s Super Styles.
Characters like J.B Chimpanski, Charlotte, Torin, and Kor have received three Super Styles. These are the Blue Rune, Purple Rune, and Golden Rune Styles. Other characters have these, but it seems Epic Games haven’t added any for Carnage.
Fortnitemares Halloween skins
The Fortnitemares event will help players get into the Halloween season, and Epic Games will add some spooky new skin to the Item Shop over the next couple of weeks.
Among these new cosmetics will be a ‘Geometrik’ Cube-themed skin along with a new version of the Cuddle Team Leader called the Curdle Scream Leader.
Fortnite 18.10 update patch notes XP changes
This update has increased the total XP you earn from completing Daily Punchcards and Character Punchcards. Shared Quests will also grant you some XP now.
However, the amount of XP that you can earn from completing Weekly Punchcards has been reduced following this update. If you want some extra XP then check out how to level up fast in the Fortnite Battle Pass.
Fortnite 18.10 update patch notes bug fixes
As always, Epic Games will be fixing any bugs that are currently plaguing the game. While the devs haven’t dropped the full patch notes themselves, we know what’s being addressed thanks to their official Trello board.

Here’s how to complete Bounties in Fortnite Season 8 to earn Gold, as well as all 18 of the Bounty Board locations.
If you’re looking to earn some extra Gold and XP in Fortnite, then you can hunt down other players as Bounties. Here’s how to complete Bounties in Season 8 and all of the Bounty Board locations.
Fortnite lets you collect Bounties on other players so that you can earn Gold Bars. These first arrived in Fortnite Season 5, taking inspiration from one of Warzone’s contracts. Now, they’ve returned in Season 8.
Whether you’re looking to complete Punchcard Quests or just want to earn some extra Gold, here’s everything you need to know about Fortnite Bounties and all of the Bounty Board locations.
How to complete Bounties in Fortnite Season 8

The player’s location will appear on the map as a yellow circle, but you’ll only be able to see their general whereabouts. So, you’ll need to search the area for them while being careful about the target spotting you first.
Once the enemy has been spotted, you can kill them. Depending on the circumstances and the skill of your target, this will be either be quick and easy or extremely difficult. Completing the bounty will grant you Gold Bars.
If another player takes out your target, you’ll receiver a smaller amount of Gold Bars than usual. If the Player Bounty runs out of time before your target has been dealt with, you’ll get no Gold Bars.

All Fortnite Bounty Board locations
To begin a Bounty, you’ll need to find a Bounty Board. There are 18 of these scattered about the island, and we have their locations listed below. Also, thanks to Fortnite.GG, we’ve got a handy map detailing all their locations too.
Here’s the location of every Fortnite Season 8 Bounty Board:
- Believer Beach
- Boat Dock near Lockie’s Lighthouse
- Boney Burbs
- Bus Stop northeast of Lazy Lake
- Camp Cod south of Catty Corner
- Catty Corner
- Dirty Docks
- Dusted Depot east of The Convergence
- Fancy View west of Believer Beach
- FN Radio on the hill east of Craggy Cliffs
- Hydro 16 east of Sludgy Swamp
- Misty Meadows
- Pylon south of Steamy Stacks
- Risky Reels north of The Convergence
- Sludgy Swamp
- Stealthy Stronghold
- The Orchard farm north of Corny Crops
- Weeping Woods
You can start a Bounty by visiting any of these locations but we recommend choosing one near the center of Fortnite Island or near a busy location. This generally grants you a higher chance of successfully completing the bounty.

How to get Sideways Weapons in Fortnite Season 8
Here’s everything you need to know about The Sideways in Fortnite Season 8, including how to enter it and get the Sideways Weapons.
One of the new changes in Fortnite Season 8 is the new Sideways dimension that’s filled with monsters. Here’s how you can enter it and access the new Sideways Weapons to complete the Cube Queen Quests.
Fortnite Season 8 is in full swing, and there are some fun new additions in the game like the Carnage skin. The new season also brought Kevin the Cube back to the battle royale, which has now formed The Convergence in the middle of the map.
Along with The Convergence came The Cube Queen, the Secret Battle Pass skin for Season 8. She can now be unlocked after the 18.30 update, where players must enter The Sideways and collect Sideways Weapons to complete her Quests.
Here’s everything you need to know about entering The Sideways and collecting Sideways Weapons.

- How to get Sideways weapons in Fortnite Season 8
How to enter The Sideways in Fortnite
Fortnite Season 8’s Sideways will be marked as rifts on your map. Once you go near, it will turn into a huge orange bubble marked by a glowing circle on your map. Once you get close to the bubble, you’ll be pulled in.
In The Sideways, players will be able to battle new monsters added to the game, who will drop new and powerful weapons to give you even more firepower against your opponents.
Once you’re in there, you’ll need to battle waves of Cube Monsters in a new dimension where gravity is low, and you’ll not have access to the game’s standard building mechanic.
How to get Sideways weapons in Fortnite Season 8
Opening chests inside Fortnite Season 8’s The Sideways will grant you all of the Sideways Weapons.
There are at least three new weapons that you can get your hands on in this dimension: The Sideways Rifle, Minigun, and Scythe. Plus, a Sideways Lightblade has also been leaked.
You can use these to deal bonus damage through their superpowered state, which is perfect for completing the Cube Queen Quests.
The Sideways Rifle can be found inside Sideways Chests. Just open enough chests and you’ll eventually get your hands on it.
This Rifle is perfect for players who prefer long-range combat. The Epic version of this weapon can dish out 32 damage with a fire rate of 3.5 and a reload time of 2.66.
Additionally, the gun has a bonus Perk where it can deal extra damage to foes while it’s hot. This makes it an ideal choice for causing mayhem the next time you’re fighting for your life in The Sideways.
Again, the Sideways Minigun is found through opening Sideways Chests. Make sure to stay clear of other players going for them, and you shouldn’t have too much trouble finding one.
As with The Sideways Rifle, this weapon also has a bonus perk. Once it gets heated, the fire rate increases so that you can shoot bullets much faster at your opponents.
And the final weapon you need for the Cube Queen Quests, the Sideways Scythe, is also found in Sideways Chests.
You’ll need to deal 150 damage opponents with the Scythe for the Cube Queen Quests, but it’s also an extremely effective tool for taking down Cube Monsters.
That covers everything you need to know about The Sideways in Fortnite Season 8. With the new update underway, we expect to see many other cool new additions to the battle royale.

Fortnite Explosive Kunai Mythic weapon leaked as Naruto rumors swirl
Some new Fortnite leaks have revealed an Explosive Kunai Mythic weapon which may be connected to a future Naruto crossover.
A brand-new Explosive Kunai Mythic weapon has been uncovered by Fortnite data miners, and this has fueled speculation about a potential Fortnite Naruto crossover.
Rumors of the anime protagonist’s arrival have been circulating for a while, and a newly leaked Mythic weapon is further fuelling speculation about this crossover. It seems like Epic Games are planning something special for anime fans.
These leaks came from notable Fortnite data miner HYPEX, who revealed a Mythic Explosive Kunai which will reportedly be coming to the battle royale title in the near future.
The Kunai is a small blade that is the most common type of throwing and assault weapon in the world of Naruto. So, fans are wondering if this is connected to the rumored crossover.
According to the leaker, the weapon has the following stats:
- Recharge Cooldown: 4 seconds
- Maximum Range: 300 meters
- Delay Between Shots: 1.5 seconds
- Hold Duration: 0.15 seconds
On October 16, HYPEX also shared information about a new NPC with the codename ‘Headband.’ While details about this character are scarce, codenames often hint at the identity of unknown skins and NPCs.
This might be alluding to Naruto’s arrival since his headband is one of the most well-known parts of his design. The data miner claims that Naruto himself will be wielding the new Mythic Weapon.

“HeadbandK (Naruto) is also set to be a Boss on the map with the Mythic Kunais (check previous tweet), no idea where or when tho,” tweeted HYPEX.
It’s worth keeping in mind that these are currently just leaks, and Epic Games have yet to verify this information. So, it’s worth taking all of this with a grain of salt until the developers announce something official.
Still, it wouldn’t be too unexpected if the developers decided to surprise anime fans with some neat Naruto content. Hopefully, they will give us some confirmation on the weapon and skin’s arrival soon enough.
