Fortnite’s V7.30 update saw the introduction of the the brand new Chiller Grenade weapon, and first glimpses at the weapon show that it could be incredibly powerful if used properly.

The new weapon is Common rarity and be found as floor loot or can be purchased from vending machines, coming in stacks of three with a maximum stack size of six.

The Chiller Grenade will “give your enemies cold feet” according to Epic Games.

While many thought the Chiller Grenade would act much like the Chiller Trap which slows players down and makes it difficult to move, Epic Games went for a different approach with this weapon.

The Chiller Grenade will add blocks of ice to enemy players feet and then knock them back, making it incredibly difficult for them to control their movements or defend themselves, as they are unable to stop and build or aim their weapon – and could become extremely dangerous during high elevation build battles.

The weapon has already been used to great effect by Twitch streamer Brett ‘Dakotaz’ Hoffman, who used the Chiller Grenade to blast an opponent into the storm, with the enemy player unable to gain control of their feet before the storm eliminated them.

Alongside the inclusion of the Chiller Grenade, Fortnite’s V7.30 Update also saw a number of popular items placed into the vault, including the classic Bolt Action Sniper that has been a mainstay of the title for some time.

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.
