A brand new shield item has been added to Fortnite: Battle Royale as part of the recent v4.3 update that went live early on May 30th.

The new foraged Mushrooms have now joined the list of shield-increasing iteams that currently includes the Mini and Regular Shield Potions, Slurp Juice, and Chug Jug.


Here are the details about the new item, as per the v4.3 update patch notes:

Added new foraged item: Mushrooms

  • Mushrooms will grant 5 shield (up to 100).
  • Can be found around shady wooded or swampy areas.

Perhaps the most important aspect of the new Mushrooms is that they grant shield up to 100, which means they can be taken as a supplement to the Mini Shield Potions, which grant shield up to only 50.

Unlike the other shield-increasing items, the Mushrooms cannot be stacked or saved in the inventory, meaning that they can only be consumed when found throughout the map.

However, they can provide a small and quick shield boost in case of emergency, and can end up making the difference in a crucial gunfight or surviving the occasional surprise trap.

A video published by the YouTube channel ‘Hidden Masters’ provides a good look at the new shield Mushrooms and where they can most easily be found on the map in Fortnite.

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

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.
