Epic Games have revealed some of the bug fixes that they’ve got lined up for the next Fortnite update as a few annoying issues are set to be resolved. 

With Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 4 in full swing, Epic have started down the path of their regular updates – bringing new content to the battle royale in the form of map changes, new cosmetics, and new items.

On top of that, each update also aims to root out a number of issues that have been bugging players, but it is difficult to fix everything.

In the recent v14.10 patch, Epic did manage to get a few things ironed out, but they’ve also got their eye on a few fixes for the upcoming v14.20 patch.

Some of Marvel’s biggest heroes have come to Fortnite in Season 4.

With updates to their public Trello board, Epic confirmed that they’ve got a bug fix coming for the issue where fishing spots can disappear altogether for PC players who have got their setting on low. 

This has also been a problem for Nintendo Switch and Android players, and Epic claim that this will be sorted once the v14.20 update hits the live servers. 

In addition to that, there is also an additional fix for certain discoverable locations not showing up as discovered once they’ve been visited, as well as a Save the World fix for Redline Ramirez’s inconsistent Commander Perk.

On top of those, the devs have also got a handful of bugs that are set to be fixed later down the line. This includes the slow glider speed after redeploying bug that was supposed to be fixed in the v13.40 update.

There is also a fix coming in the future for the auto fire setting not working on Android devices when aiming at Gorgers. Epic also still have a fix listed as coming in a future update for replays not saving on PS4, but this has been labeled as such for quite some time now.

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.
