Epic Games recently put the Counterattack bundle for sale in the Fortnite item shop, despite it previously being part of a bundle with Nvidia GPUs.

Fortnite and Nvidia recently teamed up by offering an exclusive bundle called the Counterattack bundle which was available for those who purchased a select Nvidia GPU.

Recently, that previously exclusive bundle has popped up in the item shop which has rubbed players who obtained the bundle as part of the GPU deal the wrong way.

Epic Games is righting this wrong by offering a special variant to original owners of the Counterattack bundles a special variant of the outfit.

This information was first reported by a user on Reddit who uploaded the screenshot of an email. We have since confirmed with Epic Games the information is accurate.

By offering a different variant, it might feel a little like when Epic Games offered a purple variation of the Skull Trooper skin if you were an early adopter.

The initial bundle included the following:

  • “Reflex” Outfit (Rare)
  • “Pivot” Glider (Rare)
  • “Angular Axe” Pickaxe (Uncommon)
  • “Response Unit” Back Bling
  • 2,000 V-Bucks

We don’t yet know when the variants will become available but if the above email says Epic Games will let players know in the game.

It is still unclear as to what the new variant will look like. If the Skull Trooper is anything to go off then we can probably expect a color change.

The offer which includes the Fortnite Counterattack Bundle is still available for potential buyers of the following GPUs: GTX 1070 Ti, 1070, 1060, 1050 Ti, and 1050.

The current offerings of GPUs in the bundle are being sold off as Nvidia sets its sights on the new line of RTX GPUs and the newly released GTX 1660Ti.

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.

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.
