The V6.30 Update for Fortnite Battle Royale officially released on Wednesday, November 14, and with it brought the new Mounted Turret.

Interestingly, Epic Games have classed the Mounted Turret as a Legendary Trap item, and not a weapon, making it the first trap which players can sit in and control.


The item can be found in Supply Drops, Floor Loot, Vending Machines and Supply Llamas, and comes with unlimited ammo – although players won’t be able to fire the Mounted Turret constantly as it will overheat after extended use.

The Mounted Turret was added during the V6.30 Update.

The Mounted Turret can only be placed on floors, and makes the floor piece it is sitting on invulnerable to damage, meaning enemy players can’t destroy the area it’s sitting on to take it out.

The item does take damage from enemy fire, and can be used by any player once it has been placed, regardless of whether they are a member of your team or not.

The weapon description states that the Mounted Turret will help “keep enemy players at bay,” and judging by this clip from ‘KaiX‘, it certainly seems like it will be able to do just that.


The Mounted Turret appears to have a high rate of fire, and deals around 40 damage points to an enemy player when they are shot by the heavy duty item.

It also tears through enemy walls and ramps, destroying them in seconds, meaning this item could be perfect to use when attempting to take down an enemy base.

The Mounted Turret is included in the V6.30 update and is live now, available in all game modes, so hop into the Battle Bus and go and try it out for yourself.

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
  • Deal damage after knocking an opponent back with Storm’s Whirlwind Blast (1,000)
  • Deal damage to opponents at Coral Castle (500)

Stark Industries will be swarmed by teams looking for the secret Lake House

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.
