Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop can’t believe that not just one, but two, of his favorite landing spots have been removed from Fortnite in Season 7.

The former Call of Duty esports caster has taken to Twitter to poke fun at Epic Games after realizing that both Greasy Grove and Risky Reels have been scrapped in the latest update. 


“My favourite landing spot, Greasy Grove, has been covered in ice,” joked CouRage. “My second favourite landing spot, Riskey Reels, has now been replaced by a giant concrete slab called The Block. WHY?”

Greasy was one of the locations situated on the southwest side of the map, however a new frosty biome has taken over and brought a few new snowy landing spots with it.


But, the ice had nothing to do with Risky Reels’ exit and it’s safe to say CouRage is feeling a bit hard done by right now.

Risky Reels has been replaced by a brand new space called ‘The Block’.

A large layer of cement crashed over the northeast corner of the map, and aside from a sign which just says ‘The Block’ there is nothing there right now – so, you can understand why people who used to drop here are a bit downbeat.

But, information about what the void space is going to be in the future was revealed during The Game Awards on December 6.

Donald Mustard, The Worldwide Creative Director of Fortnite, said that the “the best and coolest” designs made by players on Fortnite’s new Creative mode will soon be featured on this concrete. 

So – theoretically – CouRage could recreate Risky Reels or Greasy Grove and put it forward to be added back in the game!

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)
  • Enter the Vault in Doom’s Domain
  • Destroy Cobwebs at The Authority (3)
  • Discover Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House laboratory
  • Drive a car from Sweaty Sands to Misty Meadows in less than 4 minutes without getting out
  • Deal damage after knocking an opponent back with Storm’s Whirlwind Blast (1,000)
  • Deal damage to opponents at Coral Castle (500)

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.
