Epic Games put in another clever Easter egg with the v6.31 patch to its popular game Fortnite.

The wildly successful battle royale has been known to include the occasional nod to movies, music and viral trends since its release, and this time it’s showing appreciation once again to the mega-hit Jurassic Park.


One observant Reddit user has managed to find the nod to the popular film on one of the new Pump Shotguns that was introduced with November 27’s update.

The text “SMRT YNG LDY 110639” can be found above the trigger on the gun’s right side.


The hint is toward a classic scene in Jurassic Park in which the game warden of the park, Robert Muldoon, is flanked by a velociraptor, followed by his line “clever girl.”

The numbered text cements the theory, being Jurassic Park’s initial release of June 11, 1993, or 11/06/93.

In the latest v6.31 update, Epic’s introducing a new Epic and Legendary model to the Fortnite pump-action shotgun which models itself after the classic SPAS-12.


This is the gun used by park security in Jurassic Park but is widely shown in the film with the shoulder-stock tucked away over the gun. 

Previously, there’s been nods to this and other films. The “Rex Loading Screen” homage to Jurassic Park and the balloons tied to a sewage vent similar to an element in the horror-film “It” are just a couple examples of the studio’s inclusion of movies in their game.

Fortnite has grown to immense popularity with younger audiences as well as older generations, and the game has incorporated an archive of memes and popular culture references that suit both crowds.

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

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.
