Popular toy manufacturer Hasbro has partnered with Epic Games and Fortnite to release an official Nerf blaster version of the Legendary and Epic Assault Rifle, aka the SCAR.

Being sold as the Fortnite AR-L Blaster, it is the first in what will be a series of Fortnite inspired Nerf ‘Blasters’, revealed on October 25.


The other weapons set to be released as part of the partnership have not been revealed, but Hasbro have released the first image of the IRL SCAR.

The partnership between Hasbro and Fortnite was announced earlier in 2018, and will also include a Fortnite version of Monopoly, which Hasbro also owns the rights too.


The AR-L blaster will be available on June 1, 2019, and is set to retail at $49.99. That price tag will fetch you some nifty features, including a flip up sight to “allow players to focus their aim as they eliminate opponents and attempt to survive the “Storm.”

It will hold a 10 dart clip and require four AA batteries – though these aren’t included. If June 2019 is too long for you to wait, the AR-L Blaster will apparently be on show at TwitchCon on October 26-28, presumably in the Fortnite hall.

Nerf already makes a wide variety of ‘Blasters’, using pellets and discs, and with the variety of weapons in Fortnite and the massive player base of young fans who would undoubtedly pick them up, it’s a smart move from both parties.


The Fortnite Monopoly set should also prove popular, and will incorporate features from the game itself such as building walls, picking up health and dealing damage to other players.

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.
