The controversial Glider Redeploy mechanic in Fortnite is set to receive some changes with an upcoming hotfix.

Introduced with the v6.20 update on October 24, the Glider Redeploy mechanic underwent many changes before eventually being removed from the main game modes.

While the mechanic still remains in Playgrounds and other LTM modes, it will get a couple of major changes with a new hotfix released on November 29.

The latest hotfix will see the acceleration speed increased by 200% while the max speed will be increased by 25%.

This hotfix makes it clear that while they had to disable it in the main playlists, they’re still looking at improving the feature.

While some players liked the feature, many felt that it was too drastic of a new mechanic that changed the balance of the game.

During the few weeks it was live, various pros voiced their displeasure with the feature and offer ways of changing it until the feature was eventually taken out.

The fact that Epic is still trying to balance the mechanic could point to its return in the main game modes at some point in the future.

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.
