We don’t see as much content added in updates in comparison to chapter 1 updates. Chapter 1 updates almost always included a new weapon or item along with map changes. Thankfully, we do have a major map change in v18.30.

Here’s everything that was added or changed in today’s v18.30 update.

Epic Games are too busy lining up the next collaboration instead of putting some time into their challenge system. In the process of changing the challenge system again and making it even easier to complete quests, Epic have killed off the Fortnite guide industry.

We have several quest lines added this week with the release of the new Fortnitemares update. Not only did we get news quests, we got a new POI, the reveal of the Cube Queen, and some Halloween-themed decorations including the battle bus.

Thankfully, these quests that were released this week are a little more complex in comparison to the quests we’ve seen release since the launch of chapter 2 season 8.

One of the challenges requires players to destroy the corruption cluster and all the corruption fragments. Here’s how to destroy them along with where to find them.

How to Destroy Corruption Cluster and Fragments in Fortnite

It seems this challenge is random. You need to hit the corruption fragments with your pickaxe until all of the ones visible on the ground disappear. They’ll randomly come back up from the ground, so you’ll need to keep hitting them until the corruption cluster comes up. You’ll then need to destroy the corruption cluster with your pickaxe and you’ll have completed the challenge.

One of the locations where you can destroy the corruption cluster and corruption fragments is just south of the new The Convergence location that’s in the middle of the map.

Here’s the map location that you’ll want to drop at:
