FaZe Clan Fortnite professional Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney stumbled onto a new bug with the new The Baller vehicle during a recent stream – and he couldn’t stop laughing at what he witnessed. 

The V8.10 Update for Fortnite officially released on Tuesday, March 12, and brought with it a brand new vehicle – The Baller. The single-occupancy vehicle has a Grappler attached to the front, which makes for some ridiculous footage as it bounces around the map.

Yet, players have already discovered a new use for the vehicle – flying in the sky and getting a better look at the entire map, while also having the chance to redeploy and take up a new position within the circle. 

Instagram: FaZeThe popular Fortnite pro recently lost his top spot as the highest-earning player in the game.

Tfue took the vehicle into the lava below the Volcano. After rolling towards the main flowing waterfall-like part of the fiery surface, the popular streamer was sent flying into the air – giving him a full birds-eye view of the map.

“Yo!” Tfue called out after laughing at what had happened. “Yo! That’s fucking broken!” he added further after ejecting himself from the vehicle and began gliding back down towards the ground.

While the popular Fortnite professional and streamer alluded to the fact that something was wrong with his “broken” comment, he could clearly see the funny side of things as he laughed all the way through.

Strange things like that happen in Fortnite often due to a number of different reasons – prompting Epic Games into action whenever a tweak needs to be made. Seeing as Tfue isn’t the only player to come across the bug, Epic will probably issue a fix sooner rather than later.

Being able to fly high above the map is definitely not how the game developer intended for the new vehicle to be used.

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.
