Fortnite place a spirit crystal at tallest mountain Week 11 challenge SOLVED

Fortnite developer Epic Games has released the Week 11 challenges in Battle Royale.

The next batch of Fortnite challenges are available on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Android and PC.

Completing challenges rewards players with additional XP, which can be used to level up the Battle Pass.

Needless to say, levelling up the Battle Pass is how you unlock the very best rewards, such as new skins, items, sprays and emotes.

You can even earn V-Bucks by levelling up via the challenges, which can be used to purchase next season’s Battle Pass.

With the latest season coming to an end soon, this week’s challenges encourage players to enjoy everything the game has to offer.

Players will unlock XP by playing three different game modes, including Solos, LTMs and Creative.

You can also level up the Battle Pass by spending Gold at Deadfire’s store, which is ideal if you’re yet to try some of the game’s rarer weapons.

Another challenge tasks players with maintaining shields for one minute, or using bandages to heal.

One of the more interesting challenges tasks users with placing a spirit crystal at the top of the tallest mountain.

Fortunately, this challenge is even more straightforward than it seems, because you don’t actually have to collect a crystal first.

Instead, just head to the area marked by the X on the map above, and interact with the spirit crystal at the top of the mountain.

If you’re still not sure exactly what to do, check out the video below for a proper walkthrough of the Week 11 challenge.

The remaining Fortnite Week 11 challenges can be seen further down the page. Good luck!

Man Utd's Cristiano Ronaldo transfer dilemma may have been solved for them by Juventus

Manchester United‘s array of recruitment options up top may have been trimmed down by one after Juventus secured Champions League qualification courtesy of both themselves beating Bologna and Napoli’s slip-up on Sunday night.
Cristiano Ronaldo has once again been heavily linked with a return to Old Trafford, having left United back in 2009 to join Real Madrid in a then world record-breaking transfer.

And it was claimed this month by The Athletic that the Portugal international, who only joined Juve for £99million in 2018, might be on the move again this summer.

Staff at United are said to be monitoring his situation with it claimed a failure to qualify for Ronaldo’s favourite tournament the Champions League, in which he has scored a record 134 times goals in 176 games, would trigger his exit plans.

Yet while it was also suggested he could still leave even with a top-four finish, Ronaldo is now much more likely to see out the final year of his lucrative £30m-a-year contract.

The 36-year-old ended the season with a Serie A high 29 goals in 33 games – becoming the first player ever to be the top scorer in Italy, Spain and England’s top-flights – and across all competitions managed 40 direct goal contributions in 44 appearances, although he didn’t find the net against Bologna.

That was because Ronaldo was an unused substitute for Juve’s final league match. Outsiders might read that and believe it indicates his future is unclear – but Andrea Pirlo said others.

The Juve boss explained post-match: “It was a shared decision, Ronaldo was tired after Wednesday’s game, so I decided to start [Alvaro] Morata, another great player.

“Ronaldo was available, I have a deep squad, and I can pick many different players.”

Ronaldo didn’t need to come from the bench as Juve ran out 4-1 winners, with Napoli’s 1-1 draw at home to Hellas Verona allowing them to snatch fourth spot.

And Pirlo had also said before the Bologna game that he was confident Ronaldo would stick around in Turin.

“I see him still in the Bianconero jersey and focused,” Pirlo said. “He proved it the other night, sacrificing himself because he wanted to win the Coppa Italia. I see him focused on tomorrow, then there’s time to discuss the rest.”

Now, with Juve assured of being in the European Cup next term, surely both the player and the club will want to have one last go at ending their 25-year-plus wait for continental glory.

Ronaldo would have to take a significant wage cut to leave the Italian heavyweights and the tax rules in his current place of home means he will keep much of his huge income if he remains there.

Provided he remains as important for Juve next season as he has been this term, then why quit? Ronaldo may feel it’s time for another new challenge or he might feel the club can’t match his ambitions under Pirlo (though he’s not guaranteed to remain in charge anyway).

But a mutual parting of ways seems far more probable in the summer of 2022, when he will become a high-profile free agent.

But Ronaldo’s availability might have swayed them to abandon plans to sign a Kane or a Sancho given how tempting it would be to recruit a player of such pedigree over their younger alternatives.

In the long-term, it certainly makes the most sense on and off the pitch to go for one of the two England internationals, but members of the boardroom might have backed a swoop for Ronaldo given his status as a club legend and as one of the game’s all-time greats.

Ronaldo has shown his enduring quality with his continually-high goalscoring return but there is no doubt that will soon have to slow down as his body begins to feel the wear and tear of his illustrious career.

Now though, Solskjaer and co. might be spared the decision, and they will be left free to pick who their summer priority will be between Kane and Sancho, with such a call then expected to shape their potential options at centre-half.

Kane would cost £150m-plus as well as signing-on fees and huge wages while Sancho would be available at around £80m and on a cheaper, but still significant, salary. The wide-man is not yet at the level of his countryman, however.

It’s an unenviously tough decision for United, who don’t have the finances just to sign both, but if they don’t have to also take Ronaldo’s future into consideration, at least it’s a decision made slightly easier.

PS5 stock shortages SOLVED: Great news for PlayStation customers looking to buy a console

PS5 stock shortages could be a thing of the past, as Sony explores a possible console redesign.

Despite only launching late last year, PlayStation 5 stock issues have led to Sony re-thinking the design of the next-gen console.

The redesigned PS5 will reportedly enter production in 2022, complete with a semi-customised CPU from AMD.

“It says the next PS5 will come with a “new semi-customized” 6nm CPU from AMD,” reads a Dr. Serkan Toto tweet. “5nm is said to be too costly.”

Not only would the redesign make it cheaper for Sony to produce the PS5, but it should help to reduce stock shortages.

However, fans who have already purchased a PS5 needn’t be too worried about the new iteration, as it’s unlikely to contain any major new features.

The bad news, of course, is that PS5 stock shortages are likely to continue until production begins on the redesign.

Stock issues were a big problem in April, when hardly any consoles went on sale in the UK. This was due to shipping and delivery problems.

The console should be back in a big way next week, as retailers such as Argos, GAME, Currys, John Lewis and Amazon all get ready for a restock.

Despite the longer wait for stock to become available in stores, the good news is that the stock drops should be rather large.

This is because the delayed April stock should be available at the same time as the May drop.

According to the latest PS5 UK Stock Alerts tweet, Argos has digital and regular PS5 consoles ready for sale, although the stock drop isn’t likely to happen until 1.30am BST on May 11.

“Exclusive: Argos stores now showing stock for Digital consoles as well as Disc. There’s a lot less of them though,” reads a PS5 UK Stock Alerts tweet.

“Argos skipped this morning so the next likely drop will be Tuesday at approx 1:30am.”

John Lewis has received PS5 units ready for next week’s big restock.

If you do manage to pick up a PS5 during the next round of restocks, then it’s worth checking out new PlayStation 5 exclusive Returnal.

Developed by the studio responsible for the likes of Resogun and Nex Machina, Returnal is a roguelike shooter with bullet hell sensibilities.

“After crash-landing on a shape-shifting alien planet, Selene finds herself fighting tooth and nail for survival. Again and again she’s defeated, forced to restart her journey every time she dies.

“In this roguelike shooter, both the planet and your equipment change with every cycle, forcing you to adapt your play style and take on evolving challenges.”

Alternatively, you could grab a copy of Resident Evil Village, which sees the action shift to an Eastern European village populated by werewolves and other monsters.

Switching to a new broadband deal? Full-fibre firm Hyperoptic has solved one major issue

Broadband supplier Hyperoptic has announced a clever new plan to avoid one of the biggest hurdles when installing connections in customers homes – drilling unsightly holes in walls and running cables between rooms to find the best spot for the Wi-Fi router. It’s something all broadband companies have to contend with, although it’s something that crops up more frequently for broadband suppliers that don’t use Openreach’s infrastructure.
While you can switch between broadband companies that use the same Openreach cables (BT, EE, Sky, TalkTalk, and more) without a visit from an engineer or any fresh holes drilled into your home, suppliers that rely on their own cables will most likely need to connect-up your home when you take out a contract for the first time. Hyperoptic is making that process much less painful than it could be with its new “discreet cabling installation,” which now comes standard with its full-fibre service.

According to the broadband firm, which specialises in gigabit-capable broadband (that’s around 15 times faster than the average home broadband speed nationwide) in cities, using its new discreet option wouldn’t take any longer than existing methods. In fact, Hyperoptic believes it will speed up installation in some apartment blocks by as much as 50 percent.

As well as being used to quietly snake cables around the hallways of the building – something that Hyperoptic believes will be especially useful in apartment blocks without existing ducts or free spaces – this discreet cabling can used inside customer homes too. Measuring as little as two millimetres in diameter, a small drop of adhesive is all that’s needed to keep the cable in place, so there’s no need for eyesores like clips and fixings to keep the cable in place. Not only that, but as the cable is so svelte, holes between rooms can be hidden away in a corner or ceiling duct.

BT, Sky, and Virgin Media customers now get MORE compensation

Not only is this new technology – dubbed InvisiLight – much more aesthetically pleasing, but it’s also able to bend at 90-degree angles (allowing it to follow the corners of the room tucked behind a skirting board, for example) with no deterioration in broadband performance.

The in-home installation will take approximately 30 to 45 minutes, Hyperoptic claims.

Announcing the innovation for at-home installation, Hyperoptic Business Development Managing Director, Liam McAvoy said: “Deploying fibre inside buildings can be difficult and expensive. Our new discreet service is fast to install, practically invisible, and can be surface-mounted in hallways and between floors, to seamlessly connect residents to our gigabit-enabled services. We’re committed to providing a best-in-class service that enables us to go beyond the expected for our 250 plus developer partners. By using this new discreet cabling, we’re taking our installation experience to the next level.”

It’s worth noting that Hyperoptic isn’t the only supplier that relies on InvisiLight technology to kit-out apartment blocks and individual homes. Openreach, which has connected around 4.5 million homes to its ultra-fast gigabit-capable broadband, is using InvisiLight to tackle some sites too.

Hyperoptic – which only offers future-proofed gigabit-capable fibre – is available in around 43 towns and cities across the UK. It has connected some 400,000 homes nationwide, with a total of two million homes pledged by the end of 2021. A total of five million premises expected by the end of 2024.
