Fortnite fans on Reddit are asking Epic Games to bring back Blitz as a permanent mode, after it was removed from the game on Friday, November 9.

Epic Games announced that Blitz would be leaving the game just three days after it was added back, being replaced by the Disco Domination game mode.

Blitz is a quicker version of Fortnite’s classic gameplay, with an increase in loot, along with plenty of action thanks to the game’s storm closing in on players quicker.

Reddit user ‘Masterfirret124′ believes Epic Games should bring the game mode back as a solo playlist called ‘Quick Play’, where players are forced to go it alone in a quickly shrinking play area, instead of in squad, which is how Blitz is currently played.

Quick Play would be perfect for players who don’t have a lot of time to play as games only last around fifteen minutes, compared to normal matches which generally take between 20 and 25 minutes to complete.

Fortnite fans in the comments of the post were on board with this idea, describing it as “awesome”, and begging Epic Games to make this change.

Blitz would return as a new mode named Quick Play.

The Disco Domination Limited Time Mode that has replaced Blitz sees teams of 50 battle against each other, with the goal of securing the five different dancefloors spread around the map, with the team who holds them the longest winning the game.

At the time of writing, it is unknown if Blitz will be making a return to the game either as a squad game or as a solo game, but we’ll be sure to keep you updated as news becomes available.

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.
