Epic Games has announced a fix for the console win issue in Fortnite: Battle Royale following a recent patch and addressed fans in regards to any wins obtained during the issue.

Following the release of the V.4.3.0 patch in Fortnite: Battle Royale on Wednesday, May 30th, multiple users on console reported that the game was not correctly counting and documenting any wins that may have been obtained.

In typical Epic Games fashion, the developer quickly responded to community feedback and identified the problem in-game, leading them to create a fix as soon as possible.

On May 31st, Epic Games rolled out a small update to address the ‘win’ issue, along with a collection of other bugs and glitches found in the V.4.3.0 patch.

Console Match Wins Issue: Resolved – We just released a fix which solves the problem in which wins in Battle Royale were not reporting properly for console players. Thanks for your patience!

However, after announcing that the fix was successful, Epic Games mentioned that any wins earned by players over the period of the issue will likely not be counted or back-tracked.

As of writing, it is unknown if Epic Games will change their stance on granting wins to those that obtained them prior to the update being introduced.

More information on the V.4.3.0 update including patch notes, new additions, and much 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.
