New Fortnite Season 7 Doctor Slone Boss Location & Slone’s Pulse Rifle Mythic Weapon

Reading Time: 2 minutes

We have a new Fortnite season 7 mythic weapon, Slone’s Pulse Rifle along with the Doctor Slone boss.

We’re officially in an alien-themed Fortnite season with the launch of chapter 2 season 7. Flyable UFOs, a large mothership hovering the island, and a bunch of alien weapons replace the primal setting we had last season.

A new season also brings new map changes, although there haven’t been as many as players were expected. It does however seem like Epic will be updating the map in this seasons major patch updates along with adding new weapons and items to the loot pool.

Since chapter 2 launched, we’ve had bosses to defeat that provide players with a mythic weapon. In Fortnite season 7, we currently have one boss on the map, although I’m sure we’ll get more as the season progresses.

The Fortnite chapter 2 season 7 boss is Dr. Slone. Here’s where to find the Doctor Slone Fortnite season 7 boss along with the stats of Slone’s Pulse Rifle mythic weapon.

Where is Dr. Slone in Fortnite?

You can find Dr. Slone in the near the middle of Corny Complex. There’s no expect spawn location where you’ll find Dr. Slone as she’ll walk around the new location. If you’re wondering how to defeat her, she’s can be quite tricky. She can spawn a clone as you’re fighting her and she has a lot of health and shield.

Slone’s Pulse Rifle Mythic Weapon

Slone’s Pulse Rifle is the only Fortnite season 7 mythic weapon in the game as of the v17.00 update. The Pulse Rifle is one of the new alien weapons that has been added this season. If you’re hip-firing, the gun is automatic, but when you aim down sights, it’ll fire slower shots.

The damage for Slone’s Pulse Rifle mythic weapon is 38 with a fire rate of 4.2, a magazine size of 16, and a reload time of 2.68 seconds. Here’s what the season 7 mythic weapon looks like:

Fortnite The Aftermath Location: Where to find and collect stone from The Aftermath

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Here’s the location of where to collect stone from The Aftermath in Fortnite chapter 2 season 7.

Fortnite season 7 launched earlier today with a story trailer for the new season. The Zero Point looks like it’s been destroyed for good, and The Foundation ended up in the water at the end of the trailer.

We probably won’t get any other information regarding Agent Jones and the story line until the end of the season, although we’ll probably get random challenges for the storyline that won’t make any sense.

Either way, the new season is off to a solid start and Epic Games have even changed up the legendary quests in season 7. Instead of completing the same challenge goal over and over again for each stage of the weekly legendary quest, we have a different challenge for each stage of the challenge.

One of the stages for the week 1 legendary challenge requires players to collect stone from The Aftermath. Here’s the location of The Aftermath on the Fortnite chapter 2 season 7 map.

Where is The Aftermath in Fortnite?

As you saw in the story trailer for season 7, the spire was destroyed by the mother ship that’s currently hovering over the map. It left behind a bunch of stones and some water. That location in the middle of the map is called The Aftermath in Fortnite chapter 2 season 7.

In order to collect stone from The Aftermath, all you need to do is start pickaxing the stones that are around and in the water at the Aftermath Fortnite location.

To complete the challenge, you need to collect a total of 100 stone from The Aftermath. This challenge should be fairly easy to complete. There’s enough stones in and around The Aftermath to get this challenge done within one game. You’ll just need to be careful of other players dropping there.

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Upgrade Benches are back in Fortnite season 7 and here is where you can find them to complete the week 1 challenge.

There are many changes that have been made to Fortnite in Chapter 2, Season 7 with a lot of new things added and there are also many items that have returned, one of which being the Upgrade Benches. You can find them in different areas around the map and we will show you where they are located below.

One of the Epic Challenges for Week 1 of this season is to upgrade weapons at the Upgrade Bench. We will let you know where you find them and what you will need in order to complete this challenge. You will also need to upgrade three weapons to complete the challenge.

Fortnite Upgrade Benches Season 7 Locations

When the Upgrade Benches were first introduced to Fortnite, players would be able to upgrade their weapons by making sure they have enough materials for the upgrade. With the return of the Upgrade Benches, there has been a change in how they work as you can no longer upgrade your weapons with materials, but you will need gold bars instead. Here is a map showing you where you can find the Upgrade Benches:

As previously mentioned, you will need gold bars in order to upgrade your weapon at the bench, so make sure you have plenty before trying. The easiest way to complete the challenge is to upgrade a common weapon into uncommon as it takes 200 gold bars in order to upgrade it and the higher the rarity, the more gold you will need to spend.

When you are at the bench, you will need to equip the weapon you want to upgrade first and then interact with it. Once you have interacted with it, you will have the option to upgrade the weapon you are holding. You will need to upgrade three weapons in order to complete this challenge and once you have completed it, you will be awarded with 30,000 XP.

How to Get Battle Stars In Fortnite Season 7 (Chapter 2) – Battle Pass System Explained

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Here’s how to get Battle Stars in Fortnite chapter 2 season 7.

Fortnite chapter 2 season 7 has launched with a bang. We have a Rick & Morty x Fortnite collaboration in the Battle Pass and we’ll be able to unlock the DC Superman skin in week 9 along with other cosmetics and a shadow skin style.

The Fortnite season 7 is different from previous seasons. Battle Stars have been reintroduced into Fortnite, but there’s still a leveling system. Although different, some players are already confused as to how exactly the Battle Pass and the Fortnite Battle Stars work with the leveling system.

Fortnite season 7 Battle Pass Explained
Fortnite season 7 Battle Pass Explained

Here’s everything you need to know about the Battle Pass and Battle Stars in Fortnite season 7.

How to get Battle Stars In Fortnite

If you’re wondering how to get Battle Stars in Fortnite, it’s actually straightforward. Each time you level up in season 7, you’ll get Battle Stars. You can see your total level and how much XP you need to get to the next level in the battle pass page.

You get a total of five Fortnite Battle Stars. In order to purchase the cosmetics you want using Battle Stars, you’ll need to unlock the pages. In order to unlock the pages, you usually have to claim a certain number of rewards in total from the season 7 battle pass. For example, in order to unlock anything from the second page of the battle pass using battle stars, you’ll need to unlock four cosmetics from the first page or hit a certain level.

battle stars Fortnite season 7
battle stars Fortnite season 7

In this case, you’ll need to hit level 10 or higher to unlock the second page. Skins in the battle pass will require you to purchase all of the other cosmetics before you can unlock the skin on that page. For example, you can unlock the Rick & Morty skin until you unlock all the other cosmetics on that page.

There’s bonus rewards this season which have their own requirements. To get the Beachcomber Sunny skin style, you’ll need to claim all the rewards from the battle pass an then purchase the skin style with 20 battle stars.

The system is quite complicated in comparison to chapter 1. In chapter 1, players could get battle stars by completing challenges. Instead of a leveling system, we had a tier system, and players had the chance to get additional battle stars by finding them in the hidden loading screen.

Hopefully next season Epic can go with a simpler battle star and battle pass system.

All NPC Character Locations in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Here’s where to find all the NPC (characters) in Fortnite season 7.

Fortnite NPC or characters were first introduced back in Fortnite chapter 2 season 5. Players seem to love the addition of characters in Fortnite as they provide you with challenges that will allow you to gain gold bars, intel, weapon updates, and some NPCs will sell exotic weapons.

With each new season of Fortnite, we’ve seen some new Fortnite NPCs (characters) added around the map whilst others have been removed. There’s also a NPC character Fortnite collection book that will let you know which NPCs you have visited during the season. You won’t know the locations of the character from the book, but you’ll get a description for each one.

It seems like in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7, we have a similar number of NPC in comparison to last season. There’s no doubt we’ll get more characters added as the season goes on, but for now we have a large number to visit at the start. Here are all the NPC locations on the Fortnite season 7 map.

All NPC Locations Fortnite Season 7 Map

Data-miners aren’t only good for leaking new skins and challenges. Data-miner FireMonkey has tweeted out an image of where all the NPC locations are on the Fortnite chapter 2 season 7 map. Here’s the map below:

From a quick glance at the map, it looks like there’s a few new NPCs on the season 7 map including Marigold and Dreamflower. We’l post an updated map of the all the characters in Fortnite if there are any missing from the map above, or if more get added during the season.

How to Unlock the Superman & Clark Kent Secret Fortnite Skin

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Here’s how to unlock the Superman & Clark Kent Fortnite skin.

Some players have been unhappy that Epic Games have been adding in collaborations into the season battle passes. However, the majority seem fine with it so long as the skins and other cosmetics look good and aren’t difficult to unlock.

This season, we have a Rick Sanchez Fortnite skin which can be unlocked once you collect enough reward. The whole Fortnite battle pass system is a little different this season with players being able to unlock the cosmetics they want in whatever order they decide if they have enough battle star rewards saved up.

The no so secret Fortnite skin for season 7 is Clark Kent AKA Superman. Last season, we knew Neymar JR was the secret Fortnite skin. Players need to wait a few weeks before they could get their hands on that skin and the Superman Fortnite skin is no different.

Superman Clark Kent Secret Skin

Unfortunately, the Clark Kent Superman skin can’t be unlocked for another 65 days. That means you can’t unlock the Superman Fortnite skin until week 9 of season 8.

The skin you actually unlock is Clark Kent. However, there’s a built-in emote for it called secret identity. Using the emote will turn you into Superman until you use the emote again.

As we can’t unlock the skin for nine weeks, we don’t know exactly how you’ll be able to unlock the skin. However, going by past seasons, it’s safe to assume you’re going to need to complete different challenges to the normal weekly ones.

There’s also a Shadow Superman skin style that’s been leaked by data-miners. You can find it on the second page of the Clark Kent tab but again, we don’t know exactly how you can unlock it.

Other cosmetics from Clark Kent include the Kal-El’s Cape glider, the Solitude Striker pickaxe, the Daily Planet back bling, and a couple of sprays and emoticons.

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Here’s the full list of the weapons that have been vaulted and unvaulted in the Fortnite season 7 v17.00 update. The Hand Cannon aka the Deagle is back.

We have a brand new season of Fortnite with some map changes, a new battle pass, new weapons, different challenges and more. We also have new NPCs to find around the map as well as pay phones that’ll provide challenges to players with gold bars as a reward.

Battle Stars have finally made a return this season although it doesn’t look like hidden Battle Stars are a thing, at least not at the moment. XP coins also seem like they’ve been forgotten, but they could make a return in the middle of a season.

Battle Stars

A new season of Fortnite always brings a new set of weapons. We have four alien weapons this season including a ray gun and scanner that works similar to a flare gun by marking nearby players as well as dealing high damage to a player if you manage to land a direct hit.

A new season and new weapons means weapons and items will get vaulted and unvaulted. This season is no different and we have a full list of all the vaulted and unvaulted weapons and items in Fortnite chapter 2 season 7 (v17.00)

Vaulted weapons and items

  • Infantry Rifle
  • Revolver
  • Dual Pistols
  • Rare Harpoon Gun
  • Legendary Vendetta Flopper
  • Stink Fish

Unvaulted weapons and items

  • Bolt-Action Sniper Rifle
  • Heavy Assault Rifle
  • Pistol
  • Hand Cannon
  • Suppressed SMG
  • Launch Pad

Deagle (Hand Cannon) Returns

The Hand Cannon AKA the Deagle was first added to the game way back in Fortnite chapter 1 in season 3. Since then, it was vaulted with the release of chapter 2 and stayed in the vault for 16 months. However, it was unvaulted in the v15.40 update but was quickly vaulted in the following v15.50 patch update. Today, the the deagle is back in Fortnite but looking at the history of this weapon, we don’t know exactly how long it’ll be around for.

Fortnite Season 7 Victory Royale Umbrella Leaked (Win Umbrella)

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Here’s the reward for getting your first Fortnite chapter 2 season 7 Victory Royale.

We’ve known for a few weeks now that Fortnite season 7 would be alien or space-themed. We’ve now seen the story trailer, we have the Battle Pass trailer, and we also got an additional video explaining the Battle Pass system for the new season.

Rick from Rick & Morty is a skin along with Superman who has a shadow skin style. There’s also a different crafting material, nuts and bolts. Chests have changed and it seems like there’s a brand new chest, puzzle chests.

A brand new season of Fortnite also brings new map changes. Looking at the season 7 map at first glance, it doesn’t look like much has changed from the season 6 map, but there’s a chance we could see more frequent map changes similar to chapter 1.

A new season also brings a new battle pass and cosmetics. Players can choose which rewards they want to unlock from this seasons battle pass and Battle Stars have made a return.

A new season also brings a new Fortnite victory umbrella, and season 7 is no different. Although we’re not sure of the named on the Season 7 victory umbrella, we know what it looks like.

Unsurprisingly, the umbrella glider looks like the UFOs we’ll be drive around this season. Hopefully the servers won’t be down for too long so we can jump into the new season and attempt to get our hands on the new umbrella for winning.

Let us know in the comments section below when and if you manage to get a win this season and get your hands on this season exclusive umbrella glider.

Fortnite Season 7 The Last Reality – Jonesy The First In A UFO

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7 could be called “The Last Reality”.

We have all three Fortnite season 7 teasers along with the time the new update will go live. We also know that both the story cinematic trailer and the battle pass overview video will be available to watch on the official Fortnite YouTube channel at 2 AM ET (7 AM BST).

The teasers have all but confirmed we’ll be getting at least two collaborations in season 7, Rick and Morty and Superman. The Superman one is up in the air somewhat, but it seems extremely likely given the glasses in teaser 2 and the tweet by Donald Mustard.

Ricy & Morty x Fortnite
Rick & Morty x Fortnite

The Rick and Morty collaboration in confirmed with the official Rick and Morty Twitter account retweeting the teaser that was released today which featured the butter robot in the popular show.

Along with the teaser, we’ve had a Discord ARG. Epic Games tweeted out a link to their official Discord channel and mentioned Mari needs out help. Players were given numerous tasks to complete including completing puzzles and deciphering code.

The final task provided players with a code for creative. Players needed to find a code hidden within the creative map and within eight minutes, the challenge had been completed and the Discord ARG came to an end.

The Last Reality Fortnite Season 7

To get the code from the creative map, players needed to align the rocks correctly. Once completed, the rocks spell the words “The Last Reality”. Here’s a look at the completed puzzle thanks to NotFuryFN on Twitter:

It’s likely that Fortnite season 7 will be called “The Last Reality”. Interestingly enough, fifteen minutes after the final puzzle was completed, players noticed that Jonesy The First is in one of the UFOs used in this creative map. Here’s a look:

Jonesy The First Fortnite UFO
Jonesy The First Fortnite UFO

What does mean? Either Jonesy is an alien, has been abducted by one, or this means nothing at all. Honestly, none of this alien stuff makes any sense to me. We went from The Foundation locking himself into the Zero Point to UFOs coming into the world of Fortnite. Hopefully the story trailer can clear this up tomorrow.

Here’s to hoping we have a good season of Fortnite.
