The ‘Guided Missile’ will be returning to Fortnite: Battle Royale after being ‘Vaulted’ by Epic Games due to issues.

After first being introduced to Fortnite back in March, the Guided Missile was eventually removed from the game and placed in the ‘Vault’ after players reported a number of issues with the weapon.


On July 27, Epic Games announced in their weekly ‘Dev Update’ that the Guided Missile will be returning to Fortnite after the developer made changes to the weapon in order to make it more of a ‘scouting tool.’

Although Epic loved all the ‘fun and crazy moments’ that the weapon brought to the battlefield, they shared the ‘same concerns’ as the Fortnite community in regards to its power on the map, which led to it being vaulted.


A full list of changes for the Guided Missile can be found below.

Guided Missile Adjustments: Fortnite Dev Update – July 27

  • Ammo cap of 12 in Default Modes

As of writing, it is unknown when the Guided Missile will be returning to Fortnite: Battle Royale.

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.

  • Search Chests at Catty Corner (7)

Stark Industries will be swarmed by teams looking for the secret Lake House

If you’re struggling with the unique tasks this week, here’s a few quick pointers. Storm’s ability can be used to knock enemies off high ground vantage points. Any fall damage will count towards your weekly objective.

Additionally, Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House can be found just North of the Stark Industries POI.
