Wondering what’s going on in The Daily Bugle in Fortnite or why there’s a red X on the map? It’s time to help The Seven get this POI back, and we’ve got all the details you need.
Fortnite Episode 3 Season 2 it’s about the battle between The Seven and the Imagined Order, with many war-themed additions including tanks, a rideable battle bus, and IO Blimps floating around the island.
Following Update 20.10, the first major battle of the season will take place inside The Daily Bugle. Forces from both sides are currently fighting here, and it’s up to you to help lead The Seven to victory.
Below you will find out why there is a red X on the Daily Bugle in Fortnite, how to help The Seven get the Daily Bugle back, and an explanation of what will happen after you win the battle.
Why is there a red X on The Daily Bugle in Fortnite?
The Daily Bugle is currently red in Fortnite and there is an X above it to indicate that a battle is taking place between the Imaged Order and The Seven, who have been fighting throughout Chapter 3.
There’s also a story-related challenge to complete if you travel to where the red X is on the map, where you’ll need to help The Seven fight the Imagined Order.
Starting this challenge is as simple as landing on The Daily Bugle and heading towards the location of the battle, which is indicated by a red x on the map. It will usually be at the entrance to The Daily Bugle.
You’ll see The Seven in a firefight with the Imagined Order, and it’s up to you to help them take out all the Imagined Order guards in this area. There are a lot of them so make sure you have some decent weapons.
Once you’ve defeated them, a notification will appear at the top of the screen letting you know that the first wave is complete. A bunch of high-tier weapons and health items will also spawn from the nearby blue portal.
Now it’s time to move on to the second wave (which will again be marked with a red X on the map) and defeat all the Imagined Order guards there. Finally, you will need to do the exact same thing for the third wave.
Epic Games have hinted that the Huntmaster Saber boss is watching from above, so you’ll need to keep an eye out for him when you visit The Daily Bugle.
According to Fortnite leaks, when The Seven take back The Daily Bugle, they will not only take out the Imagined Order guards from the POI, but also take over their weaponry, including tanks, turrets, and IO Blimps.
The Blimp hovering over this area is then expected to crash near the Daily Bugle and potentially destroy some of the points of interest in the process.

As the season progresses and the battle between the Imagined Order and The Seven continues, this same format is expected to happen in two other areas of the island: Tilted Towers and Rocky Reels.
Fortnite players will likely need to defeat the Imagined Order guards at each of these locations before more airship crashes occur. We will keep you informed when this happens in the coming weeks.
