A mother from Sydney, Australia, has come forward to share a story about her ‘Fortnite-addicted’ son, who she says headbutted her for trying to stop him from playing.

Fortnite has come under fire again in a video from Australia’s 60 Minutes, where a concerned mother spoke out about her son’s addiction to the battle-royale title.

In the video, she states that her son physically retaliated to her attempts to get him to stop playing, and admitted that she was ‘frightened’ of her child. The show’s host likewise revealed that her son had been truant from classes for two years.

The video also teased that video game addiction can cause ‘irreversible brain changes,’ and was paired with clips of the son in question stating that he missed his friends outside of the game.

“I kind of miss having, like, friends, but I’ve got friends online.”

The segment was advertised as a health warning, encouraging parents to take notice of their children’s video game habits.

The video follows the World Health Organization’s classification of video game addiction as a legitimate disease, under the name “Gaming Disorder.” The disease’s symptoms include “impaired control over gaming, increasing priority given to gaming over other activities to the extent that gaming takes precedence over other interests and daily activities, and continuation or escalation of gaming despite the occurrence of negative consequences.”

Fortnite has been at the center of multiple controversies, including news of a girl entering rehab for her addiction to the game. The NHL has likewise cracked down on its players for posting about Fortnite on social media, citing that too much gaming takes away from valuable practice time.

While many gaming pros and personalities have spoken out about the benefits of video games, negative news continues to circle the topic, inciting a heated conversation throughout the world.

Things couldn’t be simpler this time around and we’ve got you covered with everything there is to know about the week 10 objectives.

You’ll need to prioritizing vehicles early on to tick the latest challenges off your list.

First up, all of the usual tasks are listed once again. You’ll need to search some chests, find some quick kills, and collect various resources. These can all be smashed out in the blink of an eye without any real difficulty.

Vehicles will be a big priority over the next few days as there are three unique challenges to tick off. One will have you racing from The Fortilla to The Authority in under four minutes. Meanwhile, the other simply asks you to stay in a vehicle for a long period of time and travel the map.

Arguably the most difficult of the vehicle-specific challenges, you’ll need to eliminate a few enemies with them. This means you may have to catch some opposing players by surprise. Be on the lookout for explosives that could end your run before it really begins.

You can blitz through a handful of these activities at the same time but others require a more focused effort. Below is the full list of challenges for the latest week in Fortnite.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 10 Challenges

  • Search Chests at Upstate New York
  • Eliminations at Lazy Lake
  • Collect Metal from Slurpy Swamp
  • Catch fish at Heart Lake
  • Eliminate opponents by hitting them with vehicles
  • Drive a boat from The Fortilla to The Authority in less than 4 minutes
  • Ride 20,000 meters in a vehicle
