Multiple Fortnite: Battle Royale community members have reported that the Damage Trap has a major bug that needs to be fixed.

Since the release of the V.5.2.1 patch in Fortnite, Traps have experienced an issue where enemy players are not taking the correct amount of damage when in the correct radius.

Reddit user tsmithmv posted a video on the FortniteBR subreddit which puts the problem on display perfectly when they managed to enclose an enemy in a build and place a Trap down, however, no damage was dealt to the opposition.

The full clip can be viewed below.

Mr. Epic, Can traps please get fixed? from r/FortNiteBR

Following the post, an Epic Games employee mentioned that it is an issue with the ‘damage volume’ of the Trap and that it will be fixed in the upcoming V.5.3 update.

The V.5.3 update is expected to come out sometime next week, however, it is unknown if Epic Games will potentially release the fix any sooner after community feedback.

More information on the latest V.5.2.1 update including patch notes, new additions, and more can be found right here.

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.

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.
