The Epic Games team aren’t afraid to change up the meta within their popular battle royale title, Fortnite.

Since launching in November 2017, the map has expanded from just a handful of locations to over 20, and the same can be said for weapons and equipment, with more ways to kill your opponent than ever before.


On Tuesday, June 19th the Stink Bomb was introduced to the game in content update V.4.4.

Lasting for 9 seconds, the Stink Bomb deals 10 points of damage per second and can be found in floor loot, chests and vending machines.


After the servers went down for just an hour to allow for the content update, players were quick to get back online and test our the new throwable.

The small plume of gas doesn’t have a huge radius, but as one user tested on himself, it certainly cause sets in panic when you step into it.

The real test for Epic Games will come when the professional players and streamers begin to use the Stink Bomb in crucial situations.


The developers of Fortnite aren’t afraid to remove an item or adjust it if they feel it’s over powered (like the Guided Missile), so all eyes will be focused on the community to see how they react.

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.
