The first footage of just how effective the Rift-to-Go item in Fortnite has raised concerns it’s overpowered.

Epic Games dropped update V5.30 on Thursday August 23, and this mega-patch brought about it a whole host of changes.

While most of the news relates to cosmetics and items that have been leaked via data mining, the Rift-to-Go was part of the official release.

Rifts were first introduced at the start of Season 5 and allowed players to parachute back into the game from above their original position. However, you had to be lucky enough to be near a rift portal in one of their fixed locations.

That’s all changed with the introduction of the Rift-to-Go, which allows players an almost instant get away in just a few seconds, no matter where you are.

Twitch streamer Hutch uploaded a video of the Rift-to-Go in action, and showed how quick it was to get away from a fight where an opponent had the high ground.

In his Tweet, he also commented that you were able to carry two of the items at any one time.

Fans of the game are dubious about its inclusion, due to the ability to get away from a difficult situation in just a matter of seconds.

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.

Additionally, Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House can be found just North of the Stark Industries POI.
