Fortnite’s third and final V7.10 Content Update saw the return of the Dual Pistols, but forced fans to say goodbye to one of the game’s most recognizable weapons.

In the update, Epic Games took the Uncommon, Common and Rare variants of the Burst Assault Rifle and placed them into the game’s vault, alongside the Six Shooter.

Many fans of the game were shocked to see the weapon removed from the game, as Epic Games had announced that the Six Shooter was leaving, but hadn’t mentioned the Burst Assault Rifle.

The Uncommon, Common and Rare variants of the Burst Assault Rifle have been in Fortnite Battle Royale since its launch in September 2017, and fans of the game are sad to see it go.

However, not everyone is sad to see the back of the weapons, with many feeling they were never strong enough to compete with the normal ARs, and were glad to see them make their way out of the game.

While the Uncommon, Common and Rare versions of the Burst Assault Rifle are gone, the Epic and Legendary versions of the item still remain in the game, and are found in chests, floor loot and supply drops.

While some are sad to see the Burst Assault Rifles gone, it’s worth remembering that just because an item has been vaulted, it doesn’t mean it’s been permanently removed from the game.

The Dual Pistols were vaulted back in November, but this update saw them reinstated, as Epic Games believe that rotating weapons helps keep the game fresh and stops one item or gun dominating the game for too long.

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.
