Corruption Vent in Fortnite

One of Raven’s Punchcard Quests in Week 4 of Fortnite Season 8 requires you to launch from a Corruption Vent in the Sideways, and here’s how you can complete it in no time.

Week 4 of Fortnite Season 8 added two new characters to the battle royale, and both of them have their own Punchcard Quests that you can complete if you want to earn some easy XP.

One of the Quests for the NPC Raven requires you to launch from a Corruption Vent in The Sideways. This task is easy enough to complete once you know where to find these launchpads on the map.

Here’s how you can complete this Fortnite Punchcard Quest.

You need to visit a Sideways Zone on Fortnite Island for this Punchcard Quest. These spawn over different POIs at the start of every match and you can spot them easily when jumping from the Battle Bus.

Here’s what you need to do;

  1. Jump from the Battle Bus and land at a Sideways Zone
  2. Collect any weapons and loot you find nearby
  3. To find a Corruption Vent, search for a glowing orange circle on the ground
  4. Approach the Corruption Vent and walk on top of it

Once that’s done, the Corruption Vent will send you flying in the direction you approached it. You don’t have to worry about taking fall damage either.

Once you’ve launched yourself from one of these Corruption Vents, you’ll earn 30,000 XP and this Sideways Quest will be completed. You can then proceed to finish the other Quests by Raven.

However, you should be wary of Cube Monsters that will attack you at these Sideways Zones. That’s we recommend that you search your surroundings for useful loot and weapons.

Fortnite’s Vibin’ Quests offer players a nice XP bonus each week, and Part Four tasks players with finding a Sith Holocron from Star Wars. Here’s how to locate and collect the Sith Holocron from Rave Cave in Fortnite.

Fornite’s Vibin’ Quests give players a ton of bonus XP towards leveling up the Battle Pass and unlocking the Super Styles. Part Four went live with the 21.20 update, and added the Sith Holocron from Star Wars to the game.

You’ll need to find this Sith Holocron inside Rave Cave to complete the Vibin’ Quests, so here’s its location and how to pry open shipping boxes to find it.

To locate the Sith Holocron in Rave Cave, Fortnite players need to head inside the mountain and stand outside the main building.

Just stand on the platform beside the water and you’ll get a notification telling you that you have completed the “Locate where the Sith Holocron is being held in Rave Cave” stage of the Vibin’ Quests.

This will mark all of the shipping boxes which might store the Sith Holocron on your HUD, and you’ll get another 7,000 XP.

After you’ve located the Holocron in Fortnite, you’ll need to “pry open shipping boxes” to find it. To do this, head into Rave Cave’s main building through the doors with the shutters half down — you’ll spot it right beside the stairs.

You’ll see small wooden crates, which are the shipping boxes, glowing and marked on your HUD. Hit these boxes with your Harvesting Tool and the Sith Holocron will appear on top of one of them.

Simply press the interact button to collect the Sith Holocron and you’ll have completed the Vibin’ Quest and earned another 7,000 XP.

Apex Legends & Fortnite Twitch viewership takes major hit as Fall Guys surges

The rise of Fall Guys since going free-to-play has seemingly led to a drop in Twitch viewers for both Fortnite and Apex Legends.

Fall Guys has seen a massive bump in popularity since going free to play, so much so that it appears to have damaged rival battle royales Apex Legends and Fortnite’s popularity on Twitch.

For a few glorious months after its launch in 2020, Fall Guys was the hottest property in gaming. Millions of players took pleasure in dragging their clumsy jellybeans through outrageous levels in an attempt to be the last bean standing.

Despite being the most-downloaded PS Plus game of all time, Fall Guys failed to find the staying power that other battle royales like Warzone enjoyed. However, after going free-to-play and releasing on Switch and Xbox, the game saw its player base grow to over 20 million.

The resurgence of Fall Guys appears to have impacted its competitors too, with both Apex Legends and Fortnite taking a significant hit in Twitch viewership.

Fall Guys characters running through course

After going free-to-play in June, the latest Twitch figures show just how big a comeback Fall Guys has made. At the time of writing in July 2022, Fall Guys is the sixth most-viewed game on the platform with an average of 88,100 viewers.

This is a massive 22% increase from the previous week, placing Mediatonic’s quirky title alongside heavy hitters like Counter-Strike: GO and Escape from Tarkov.

What’s even more interesting is the effect that Fall Guys’ success has had on its rivals. Fortnite and Apex Legends have slipped behind Fall Guys with drops of 7.4% and 12.7% respectively, with Apex barely clinging on to a spot in the top 10.

Call of Duty: Warzone has also taken a significant dip, losing 16.2% of its Twitch audience in the last week.

Of course, it’s tough to tell if the drops seen by rival battle royales were directly caused by people tuning in to Fall Guys instead, but it’s definitely interesting to see such a drastic change in figures just after the game went F2P.

We’ll have to wait and see if Fall Guys can keep players and viewers on board this time around, but with Apex Legends Season 14 and Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 4 coming soon, Mediatonic has their work cut out for them.


In the meantime, check out the leaked Dragon Ball Z crossover in Fortnite, as well as the most popular character in Apex Legends Season 13.

The brand-new Shuffled Shrines POI has appeared with the 21.20 update and features an Indiana Jones-style secret room to investigate. You’ll need to find it and get inside to complete the Indy Quests, so here’s how.

Fortnite players have been desperate to finally unlock the Indiana Jones Battle Pass skin, and it finally went live with the 21.20 update. Alongside Indy, there’s the brand-new Shuffled Shrines POI just west of the Joneses.

Shuffled Shrines has a secret door that players need to open to unlock the Indiana Jones Quests, and in true Indy fashion, there’s a puzzle to solve and deadly traps to avoid. Here’s how to solve the puzzle and open the secret door to complete the Fortnite Indiana Jones Quests.

Fortnite players looking to open the secret door at Shuffled Shrines will need to solve the stone puzzle.

There will be four stones around Shuffled Shrines, each with a different color-coded symbol. Starting on the south side of Shuffled Shrines, head clockwise around the area, marking down the symbol displayed on each shrine. While the stones will always be in the same place, the symbols will change each match.

You can check out their locations on the map below, and you’ll be able to hear them as you approach.

Once you’ve got all four symbols, head to the secret door in the middle of the POI. You’ll find four stones with the symbols, and use your interact button to have the stones display the symbols in the order that you visited them.

Once all four are correct, the stones will start glowing and the door will open. As this is an Indiana Jones Quest and POI, you’ll need to be careful of the traps that line the corridor as you approach the artifact.

Once you reach the main chamber where the artifact sits on a plinth (picking this up will give 250 Gold), look to your right and you’ll notice a doorway masked by a large bush.

Head through the door and go right to the end of the corridor and you’ll find two Mythic chests and you’ll complete the “Find the secret door past the main chamber in Shuffled Shrines” Indiana Jones Quest and unlock the Indy’s Dustoff Emote. But be careful, you can be squished by a boulder on your way out.
