Reading Time: 2 minutes

Here’s where you can find and place spy probes in Fortnite.

We’re only one week away from being able to unlock Superman in Fortnite. The challenges for the upcoming skin was leaked by data-miners in yesterday’s v17.30 update, but they won’t go live until next week Thursday when the Epic challenges are released.

We have new legendary quests to complete in the meantime, and players are tasked with placing spy probes. To complete the challenge, players will need to place a total of three spy probes. Here’s where you can find and place them.

Place Spy Probe Locations in Fortnite

To complete this challenge, you’ll need to head over to Retail Row as that’s the only location that we know of where you’ll be able to find and place the Spy Probe.

There’s a number of different locations where you’ll find them and we’ve created a list along with a map with the locations marked on it in order to help you complete this challenge as quickly as possible.

Here are the locations where you’ll find spy probes in Fortnite:

  • South of the yellow house on the hill.
  • West of the yellow house on the raised grass section by a tree.
  • Near the blue tower on the hill north of Retail Row.

There are likely other locations where you can find and place these probes, and we’ll be sure to update this guide with more locations when the challenge has been released.

According to some YouTube videos, you can find more probes at Slurpy Swamp and near the middle of the map. These locations at Retail Row are close together and if you have a vehicle, it shouldn’t take you too long to find and place three different spy probes.

New Fortnite Update Today v17.30 (August 3rd 2021) Patch Notes, Server Downtime, Leaks & More

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Here’s everything you need to know about the v17.30 Fortnite update that’s releasing today (August 3, 2021).

We’ve only had two new major Fortnite updates so far this season. We’ve also had two content updates along with the v17.21 update that released last week which introduced a brand new weapon to the game.

We know that we’ll be getting an Ariana Grande Fortnite concert now that it’s officially been confirmed after rumors and teasers suggested an Ariana x Fortnite collaboration was coming to the game in the near future.

We also have Superman coming next week although we don’t know how we’ll be able to unlock him yet, but we’ll likely get more information on that during today’s new Fortnite update.

Epic Games announced the new update, v17.30, in a tweet on the official Fortnite Status account and here’s everything you need to know.

Fortnite Update Servers Down

Epic announced that services will be disabled at approximately 1:30 AM ET (5:30 AM UTC). The Fortnite servers didn’t go down until 2:30 AM and are still currently down. Here’s the tweet from the Fortnite Status Twitter account:

v17.30 New Fortnite Update

We’re not sure how long the servers will be down for, but we wouldn’t be surprised if they’re down for longer than usual as Epic will likely be testing the servers for the upcoming event. When the servers are back up, we’ll update you here.

Patch Notes

Epic Games have started releasing Fortnite patch notes for Battle Royale again, although they don’t include all the changes. It’s almost certain the Grabitron gun will finally be released today, but we’ll confirm when the servers are back up.

Leaks

As with all major Fortnite updates, expect data-miners to leak upcoming skins, pickaxes, gliders, and other cosmetics including packs. We should also see more event files leak along with challenges for the next couple of weeks.

Ariana Grande Fortnite Icon Series Skin Leaked

Reading Time: 2 minutes

The upcoming Ariana Grande Fortnite skin has now been leaked by data-miners.

Prior to the v17.21 update going live last week, there was a rumor going around on Reddit that a Ariana Grande x Fortnite collaboration would be coming soon including a skin and other cosmetics as well as an in-game concert.

A countdown timer then appeared in Fortnite which ends on Ariana Grande day. That fueled more speculation that there will be an Ariana Grande concert on that day. This was all but confirmed when three posted were decrypted before they went live in-game which all hinted towards an Ariana Grande live concert.

Epic Games then officially confirmed the Rift Tour in Fortnite when the challenges went live on Thursday, 29th July at 3 PM BST. Although we know we’re getting the event, players were still wondering if there would be an Ariana Grande Fortnite skin. We now have a leak of the skin to confirm there will be a skin coming to the game at the same time as the event.

Fortnite Ariana Grande Skin Leaked

Data-miners have been posting trailers of the Rift Tour event and we also have a leak of the Ariana skin. It was found on the France Fortnite website with the following text “Journey to magical new realities where Fortnite and Ariana Grande collide”.

Unfortunately, the Ariana Grande Fortnite skin looks absolutely nothing like her. It’ll be interesting to see the reaction from Fortnite fans once it’s available to purchase in the item shop.

Here’s a look at the skin:

Ariana Grande Fortnite Skin

In my opinion, this is one of the worst collaboration skins we’ve seen and I find it hard to believe Ariana Grande fans will want to purchase a skin that looks nothing like her. It’ll likely be in the shop after the Fortnite season 7 Rift Tour live event and should be available to purchase for a few days after the event.

Let us know in the comments section your thoughts on the skin.

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Here’s where Coral Cove, Base Camp Golf, and Unremarkable Shack are in Fortnite chapter 2 season 7.

The Fortnite week 8 epic quests going live in a couple of hours but thanks to data-miners, we know exactly what the challenges are. We also know the locations of all the week 8 artifacts which we have a dedicated article for.

One of the challenges requires players to visit Coral Cove, Base Camp Golf, and Unremarkable Shack. In previous challenges, players have the option in which they’d like to visit out of the three provided locations as they only need to visit one.

However, this challenge requires players to visit all three locations. Players may not know the whereabouts of these locations especially Base Camp Golf and Unremarkable Shack. Here’s a quick guide to show you all of the locations.

Base Camp Golf Fortnite Location

If you’re wondering where Base Camp Golf is in Fortnite, you’re not alone. You’ll find it southeast of Catty Corner on the large Snowy hill. Here’s the exact location marked on the map.

Fortnite Unremarkable Shack Location

This is another location where players might not know where it is on the season 7 map. If my memory serves me correctly, there’s only been one or two challenges that have required players to know where the Unremarkable Shack is in Fortnite.

You can find it on the north side of the map on the small separate island near Lockie’s Lighthouse. Here’s where it is:

Visit Coral Cove

Unless you’re a new Fortnite player, at this point you should know where Coral Cove is. However, we’ve included it anyway and you’ll find the unnamed located west of Coral Castle.

Remember, all you need to do is visit Coral Castle, Base Camp Golf, and Unremarkable Shack. You don’t need to dance at these locations or perform any other action apart from visiting them.
