You would be hard pressed to find many people who approve of and are enjoying the current state of Fortnite Battle Royale.

Many among Fortnite community have been very vocal and outspoken about the game over the past few weeks, with the in-game bugs, glitches, and overpowered/underpowered items being the primary areas of their concern.


Reddit user ‘LilYerk’ has taken the liberty of posting a video that pretty much sums up everything that is currently wrong in the game.

The 30-second clip is a montage of several sequences that really bring to light some of the game-breaking bugs that are plaguing the game, and infuriating countless players in the process.


There are several things to consider about what is shown in the video above. The first is the instance where the player gets eliminated by an enemy who just seemingly appears out of thin air, despite the fact that there doesn’t appear to be any ping spikes or connection interrupted.

The next is a common issue in Fortnite, and has been for a very long time. This is the issue of shotguns not inflicting damage even though the pellets from the shot are shown to have hit the enemy player. 

The clip above shows the player’s shotgun hitting 10 pellets to the body of the opponent, while no indication of any damage is shown.


This issue may soon be resolved as Epic Games have announced that the v6.3 update on November 26 includes a big buff to shotguns, particularly the Pump Shotgun.

The final issue addressed in the video is that of builds not being placed properly, especially when using the Turbo Building feature. In the clip, the player tries to place a Trap on the floor inside the restroom and it instead gets placed in a different area, ultimately exposing the player and leading to his elimination.

What adds insult to injury is the fact that the player gets eliminated with a Mounted Turret, which is widely considered to be very overpowered and has been negatively received by most players since being first added.

We’re now in the seventh week of Fortnite’s Marvel-themed season meaning that there’s not long to go until the current battle pass items are locked away for good. Here’s everything you need to know about the latest challenges to help with your experience gains.

As with every other season, XP is vital in Fortnite. Whether you’re trying to unlock one of the 100 base tiers in the Season 4 Battle Pass, or you’re pushing beyond that for ultra-rare skins, there’s always something to pursue.


Challenges are often the best way to help boost your XP gains. Most can be knocked off in a matter of minutes for some of the biggest XP dumps possible in the battle royale. If you’ve already been ticking objectives off each week, you’ll feel right at home this time around.

From searching chests to tallying eliminations, the Week 7 challenges couldn’t be simpler. Here’s our complete overview of the eight unique tasks on offer.

Be on the lookout for enemies near Doom’s Domain this week.

You’ll be jumping around the map quite a bit this week as almost every challenge will take you to a new location. Finding eliminations at Craggy Cliffs should be a breeze as this is sure to be a hotspot over the next few days. Just be prepared for an immediate fight every time you drop here in Week 7.

The same can be said for Doom’s Domain as players will be looking to enter the vault for easy XP. Make sure you have a decent loadout before heading in as you’re sure to face some opposition here.

One rather unique challenge this week asks you to deal damage in a very specific way. First, you’ll need to find and equip Storm’s Whirlwind Blast ability. Once you’ve got an enemy in your sights, use this ability to knock them back. Once they’re pushed off course, you’ll then need to swap your weapons and deal 1,000 damage.


To tick off multiple challenges at once, you could always find Storm’s ability, then head to Craggy Cliffs, or even Coral Castle. The full list of objectives for Week 7 can be found below.
