The recently released v5.1.0 Update in Fortnite included an extensive list of in-game changes and new additions.

Although not included in the Patch notes, there were also several subtle changes made to the map that are worth a closer look.

In total, there are five notable alterations made to the map, all different types and around varying locations.

Tribute to Muselk’s Rescue Mission Effort

IGN

Epic Games has added a tombstone to pay tribute to the trapped player named ‘Chappadoodle,’ who streamer ‘Muselk’ tried to save but accidentally eliminated.

Risky Reels Fixed Up

IGN

Because Risky Reels had been added at the beginning of Season 4, it was littered with damage caused by the meteors crashing into the map. 

Now, the location has been restored to a proper drive-in movie theater, although the screen still remains damaged.

The screen will likely get fixed soon as it is where the winning film of the Fortnite Blockbuster challenge will be shown. 


Clay Pigeons

IGN

Special machines have been added to different parts of the map that shoot out clay pigeons. Players can manually release pigeons from the machine into the air, and then shoot them down for added points on the scoreboard.


Ramps for ATKs and Shopping Carts

IGN

Wooden ramps have been found at various locations on the map, and are designed to give players a jump boost when driving ATKs or Shopping Carts.

These ramps have been placed on high locations so that players can get maximum airtime when flying off of the edge.


Mysterious Trucks Carrying Supplies

Several new trucks have appeared at the end of Dusty Divot, sparking up theories that some sort of construction will be taking place at that location over the course of Season 5.

Some believe that the factories near the old Dusty Depot that were destroyed by the Season 4 meteor could be coming back, while others contend that the broken Depots at Dusty will be getting fixed up.

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.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 7 Challenges:

  • Search Chests at Catty Corner (7)
  • Eliminations at Craggy Cliffs (3)

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.
