Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 has brought Ballers back to the battle royale, and we’ll go over everything that you need to know about them, including their locations and how to use the giant Screwballer rollercoaster.

There is a plethora of new content for players to explore following the arrival of the Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 3 update, including the Reality Seeds loot mechanic as well as rideable animals.

Aside from adding brand-new content to the battle royale title, Epic Games have also brought back The Baller vehicle that you can roll around in. We’ll go over where you can find this vehicle on the island.

You can find Ballers inside the Rave Cave POI which is a new location that has popped up on the western side of the island in Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 3. Head over there and you’ll find Ballers all over the POI.

This vehicle resembles a giant hamster ball and was first introduced back in Chapter 1 before being vaulted until now. You’ll be protected from damage when inside this vehicle and can use its grappler to grab onto surfaces.

If you want to get your hands on one of these vehicles quickly, then you’ll need to follow the pink Ballercoaster track in the area which leads to a platform containing Ballers for you to take. This location also has the new Screwballer rollercoaster.

The Screwballer rollercoaster goes around and through the Rave Cave POI, and you can ride it by jumping into a Baller and then driving it onto the tracks around the area.

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Make your way to Rave Cave
  2. Find a platform by the tracks
  3. Hop into a Baller
  4. Roll the Baller onto the tracks
  5. Enjoy the ride

While it’s exciting to drive around in these vehicles, the bad news is that you can’t use one for too long as they will eventually run out of fuel. Epic Games have confirmed that you cannot refuel a Baller in Fortnite.

As disappointing as that may be, the good news is that Rave Cave contains multiple Ballers for you to take, so you can easily get into another one. Be sure to take this vehicle out for a drive the next time you hop into Fortnite.

Best Fortnite Hide & Seek codes: July 2022

The Creative library of Fortnite consists of a wide range of mini-games that add an element of excitement amongst the player base and allows them to take a more casual approach towards the game. Here are some Hide and Seek mini-game codes that are in-game right now.

Fortnite creative mode

Fortnite Creative maps have went through an entire era of evolution when map creators bring popular games to their respective island creations. From Fall Guys inspired obstacle courses to Murder Mystery maps, creators have blessed the player-base of Fortnite with interesting creations.

Ever since Fortnite added The Block and introduced its Creative Game Mode in 2019, it has seen a vast evolution and innovation by Map Creators who dedicate their time and creativity in creating an experience for the loopers. This has paved the way for several designers and map creators of other games to create their own ideas of a game in the vast multiverse of Fortnite and make money using its lucrative Support-A-Creator program.

However, some games are loved by the community for its stability, innovation and friendly gameplay, while some are heavily dissed by them. One such Creative game that is still loved by the community is Hide and Seek.

Fortnite players love to play the classic Hide and Seek in gorgeously created Creative Island Maps where they can hop on with their friends and have a good time without having to engage in serious gun-to-gun action. Here are some trending Hide and Seek Map codes for you to try as of July 2022.

Fortnite Hide and Seek Map Codes: July 2022

Hunted: 9664-2134-4038

Hunted was created by MERLIN.CREATOR who was heavily inspired from games like Dead By Daylight and Evolve to create this horrific Hide and Seek Experience in Fortnite Creative. The rules are pretty simple as there are Four Survivors on the map who need to destroy Five binding cubes spread across a farm to escape it and at the same time escape the hunter. To destroy these cubes, players are each given a Repair Torch, while the Hunter hunts them down with a pickaxe and eliminates them.

Borderlands Infection Hide & Seek: 4819-8403-7360

Borderlands Infection: Hide & Seek was created by NootNu and as the name suggests, is inspired by Borderlands game series. The official description of the map reads as:

“Play as either a Survivor: trying to survive the apocalyptic horde seeking to convert you, or an Infected: a specialized, pickaxe-only player trying to turn survivors onto your team. And beware of unexpecting twists at the end of each round to keep all players on their toes.”

The gameplay has a zombie style play to it as the Survivor team runs away from the infected with a gun and only 20 bullets in it, whereas an Infected can choose their class with different abilities and converts the survivors to their team by pickaxing them. The game begins with only one Infected and takes place in 3 different interesting environments.

Modern City Hide & Seek: 7477-6379-1293

This modernized version of Hide and Seek was created by map creator Robotwarior62 and features a map much alike famous Fortnite POI Tilted Towers. This map rests basically on the classic parkour mechanics that have been in Fortnite ever since the inception of Parkour based Creative maps. Moreover, with the introduction of modern Mantle and Sprint mechanics, the fun of Hide and Seek in this map has been elevated for players to enjoy, jumping between buildings and heights to escape the Hunter.

Prop Hunt – Wizards Great Hall: 1474-2507-3173

A very Harry Potter inspired map was created by veteran map creator Marablind who has made a visual treat for the fans of the J.K. Rowling franchise to enjoy. The map shows a Hogwarts style dining hall with several props one can choose from to hide from the evil Death Eaters who hunts the players down. Here players are wizards and have magic abilities to escape and hide from the Death Eaters, who also have certain abilities to catch their opponents. This is basically a Hide and Seek map but with magical abilities.

The Props that Stole Christmas: 7115-2100-1957

This christmas themed map was created by RichImpulse and plays sort of like an Uno Reverse Card on the traditional Hide and Seek map. Here Elves are trying to make toys in Santa’s factory just before Christmas and the hiders who are props will try to stop them. The map contains exciting items for hiders to choose from as Elves carry a weapon to eliminate these props ruining the spirit of the Holiday Season.

Indiana Jones in Fortnite 21.20 update

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 is nearing its halfway point, with the 21.20 update set to add even more content to the game. Here’s everything we know so far, including when to expect the downtime, Indiana Jones’ arrival, and map changes.

Fortnite shows no sign of slowing down with Chapter 3 Season 3 adding even more to the blockbuster battle royale such as the new Ripsaw Launcher and Grapple Glove. The 21.10 update brought Darth Vader to the island and added the Super Styles, and the upcoming 21.20 update brings even more to the battle royale.

Here are the early patch notes for Fortnite’s 21.20 update, including the server downtime, the Indiana Jones skin, bug fixes, and map changes.

Fortnite 21.20 update release date & downtime

Fortnite’s 21.20 update will go live on July 5, with downtime beginning at around 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM BST and matchmaking disabled 30 minutes before.

The downtime usually lasts for a couple of hours, and then you can launch the game and experience all of the new content on offer.

Indiana Jones arrives in Fortnite 21.20 update

Indiana Jones skin in Fortnite chapter 3

Each Fortnite season comes with a bonus skin that Battle Pass owners can unlock a few weeks in, and Season 3’s 21.20 update finally brings Indiana Jones.

Although the skin isn’t set to arrive until July 7, two days after the update, Epic sometimes unlock the skin early — we’ll just need to wait and see.

Once the Indiana Jones Battle Pass page is unlocked, Fortnite players can start completing challenges to unlock the Harrison Ford skin and associated cosmetics.

Fortnite 21.20 map changes

The Fortnite Competitive Twitter account has confirmed that the Tumbledown Temple landmark will undergo “significant changes” with the 21.20 update.

While some expect the temple to get an Indiana Jones-themed makeover, it’s also possible that the Reality Tree will infect the area, giving the area a different theme each match.

Fortnite No Sweat Summer challenges

Epic Games added the Island Hopper Creative Quests as part of the No Sweat Summer event and suggested that more challenges are still to come.

At the end of the Island Hopper blog post, Epic teased: “Want more summer vibes? No sweat, more summer is coming. Stay tuned for more.”

The Island Hopper Quests are only live until July 6, so it sounds like there will be even more challenges to complete after they conclude.

Fortnite 21.20 update bug fixes

Fortnite Reality Falls POI

Thanks to Epic Games’ Trello board of Fortnite Community Issues, we can see the major bug fixes that are set to arrive in the 21.20 update.

  • Battle Royale: Sapling Icon can be misplaced on the Map/Minimap
    • Players may see their Sapling Icon out in the ocean or otherwise off of the actual map and not anywhere near where they had planted it.
  • Creative: Tracker Device
    • We’re aware of an issue that is causing the tracker device to not update correctly for teams when multiple teams are able to use it.

How to spectate in Fortnite Chapter 3

Watching over players can be educational or down-right hilarious, but how do you spectate in Fortnite Chapter 3?

Published

Spectating other players in Fortnite can be a great way to learn more about the game by watching how better opponents play, or simply good fun to see what others get up to. If you’d like to watch somebody else’s gameplay, here’s everything you need to know about how to spectate in Fortnite.

For many, the sole reason to jump onto Fortnite is to leap out of the Battle Bus, hurtle towards the map below, and eliminate enemies for a Victory Royale. For some though, it’s just as fun to watch other people play, whether to learn or just for some laughs.

While Epic Games keep adding new content to the game with every seasonal patch, one thing that disappeared was the ability to watch anyone’s game at any time.

While there are now some restrictions on who you can spectate, and when, there are still ways to settle back and observe matches. Here’s everything you need to know about spectating in Fortnite Chapter 3.

How to spectate friends in Fortnite Chapter 3

To spectate your friends in Fortnite, you’ll need to join their lobby, as the ‘Watch Game’ feature is no longer available.

Once you’ve joined your friend’s lobby, you’ll have to wait for 30 seconds after their match has started before you can see what they’re up to. This delay means you won’t see them jump out of the Battle Bus or land on the ground, but you should arrive just in time to see them engage opponents.


Can I spectate strangers in Fortnite Chapter 3?

Unfortunately, the only way to spectate strangers in Fortnite Chapter 3 is to watch players who eliminate you from a match.

When an enemy takes you down, you’ll immediately be shown your final placement, along with a list of options to start a new match or head back to the pre-game lobby. The game will also show you what your opponent is up to after they killed you, and you can watch the match all the way to the end via this method.

You’ll not be able to watch strangers from the pre-game lobby though, as the ‘Watch Game’ feature has been removed from the game entirely.

Why was Fortnite’s spectate feature removed?

While Epic Games didn’t give any details on the reason why they removed it, popular opinion suggests that stream sniping was the main reason it got axed.

Players would enlist friends to watch ongoing matches and call out enemy locations, making it easy for teams to essentially cheat their way to a victory.

Of course, it’s still possible to stream snipe opponents who are broadcasting their gameplay on streaming sites like Twitch or YouTube, but the delay means it isn’t quite as effective as this method.


If watching other players has you wondering how good you are, make sure to check out the average Fortnite kill/death ratio to see how you stack up.
