Fortnite bug can make the Golden Ice Brutes way easier to kill for Ice Storm challenges

Fortnite players knew they were in for headaches when Epic Games announced that the Ice Legion would infest the battle royale, but there might be a bug that makes dealing with the undead much less demanding.

Fortnite’s Ice Storm Event brought along with it the Ice Legion, which are a reskin of the Cube Monsters first seen in the Fortnitemares event. But some players haven’t taken too kindly to the PvE element being reintroduced to the game, so a bug that stops the worst of the Legion in its tracks might be a welcomed one.


In a post, Reddit user hippy713 got a bit intuitive after being rushed by a Golden Ice Brute and its crooneys by placing a trap underneath the behemoth that seemed to make him stay in place.

After the trap had engaged the Brute, it seemed to have clipped the monster’s body to the trap, rendering it completely motionless while being repeatedly attacked from the spikes below it.


With the mini-boss incapacitated, the user was then able to clear the small horde of Ice Fiends as they spawned from the Ice Spike nearby.

The player was even able to completely destroy the Ice Spike from a great distance, while the Golden Ice Brute still seemed to be bugged on the placed trap.

Epic Games via GamewithA bug like this would be great if a player has a Golden Ice Brutes charging at them.

Although the bug seems to be incredibly useful for managing the worst that the Legion has to offer, some players have said that the bug didn’t work for them, while others said it happened to them too.


Even though Epic Games tends to iron out bugs in its game, this glitch might be one that players wouldn’t mind getting ignored.

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

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.
