Vampire Kado Thorne has made the Island his home in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4, draining the Island’s wealth and treasures to fund some pretty fancy real estate: Sanguine Suites, Relentless Retreat, and Eclipsed Estate. Heist goods from Thorne’s properties to take back what belongs to the Island — and more importantly — to thwart Thorne’s ultimate plan. The fate of the Island is at stake, and thievery’s the last resort. So are you in?
Know the Locations
Behind the luxurious exteriors of Sanguine Suites, Relentless Retreat, and Eclipsed Estate are strongly defended bases complete with cameras, laser grids, and guards. Thorne has filled ‘em with valuable items, and he’s also taken over Rumble Ruins, the Slap Juice factory, and a tower in MEGA City. Make sure you’re prepared before infiltrating anywhere run by Thorne.
Along with existing and unvaulted weapons, prepare for your break-in with new ones:
Rocket Ram: When you’re entering a base, you can either take the stealthy route… or come flying with the Rocket Ram. When it’s time to escape the base, use the Rocket Ram if there’s no car around.
Infiltrator Pump Shotgun, Scoped Burst SMG & Twin Mag Assault Rifle: Once inside the base, break out the Infiltrator Pump Shotgun, the Scoped Burst SMG, or the Twin Mag Assault Rifle. The Twin Mag Assault Rifle has a flippable magazine that allows for a faster reload every other reload.
Business Turret: Want a weapon that’s a little more hands-off? Take hold of a Business Turret: a turret that looks like a briefcase while it’s in your hand, but transforms once thrown. The Business Turret will automatically lock onto nearby enemies and fire, so all you have to worry about is the placement!
In a base unprepared? Look for Heist Bags: duffle bags stuffed with heisting gear! Heist Bags come in handy for the empty-handed. (Heist Bags have a chance to contain a Crash Pad Jr. (new!), Remote Explosive (unvaulted!), Rocket Ram, ammo, healing items, and more.)
Get the Goods
Locked up in the depths of Thorne’s properties are Mythic items from Fortnite’s history:
Midas’ Drum Gun
TNTina’s Ka-Boom Bow
Ocean’s Bottomless Chug Jug
Kit’s Charge Shotgun
Kit’s Shockwave Launcher
Zyg and Choppy’s Ray Gun
The Foundation’s MK-Seven Assault Rifle
Gunnar’s Stinger SMG
Snag one of these… then use it to help you escape! Where to escape to? Head to the taken-over Rumble Ruins, Slap Juice factory, or MEGA City tower. Even though they don’t have the Mythic treasures, they still have plenty of great loot!
Make a Getaway
If you make it out of a Thorne building uneliminated, don’t look back — hop in the nearest car for a vehicular escape. The more cinematic the escape the better, so look for a Nitro Fang by Victory Motors. Opponents on your tail? The Nitro Fang features a handbrake for making lock-tight turns.

Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4 Ranked
Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4 means Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4 Ranked! As previously announced, everyone’s rank has been reset in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4 Ranked to provide a fresh start for all players.
Similarly to Season Zero, you’ll only need to play one Ranked match in Chapter 4 Season 4 to have your rank revealed (one match per Battle Royale and Zero Build). Your performance in your first match does not determine your initial rank placement. Rather, it reveals your rank and then updates your rank progress bar based on your performance in the match.
