Fortnite’s large arsenal of weapons makes the gameplay hectic, fun and diverse but a game mode that solely focuses on auxiliary armaments would create another kind of beast.

Epic Games frequently introduces new takes on its own formula in the form of Limited Time Modes (LTM), and a scenario that takes away primary weapons and turrets from the game would be interesting.

A Reddit post from user ‘An-FBI-Agent’ gave a quick rundown of how a gun-less LTM could work in the 100-player battle royale and it would instantly be one of the wildest additions to the game.

Their concept would keep shotguns, assault rifles, and even pistols from spawning while increasing the spawn-rate of other offerings such as traps, Stink Bombs and others.

The game is littered with ancillary weapons ranging from dynamite, Clingers, grenades, and Spiked Traps, but user ‘An-FBI-Agent’ specifically disallows the busted Mounted Turret even though it’s technically classified as a trap.

A mode like this could increase the chances of seeing exciting new uses for distortion items like Launch Pads, Chiller Traps, Boogie Bombs, Shockwave Grenades and the like.

Players who aren’t great at aiming could have a lot of fun in a mode that completely dispels one of their worst skill sets.

Readers were quick to point out that skybases would ruin the idea. But without any guns and an increases spawn-rate to items like Port-a-Forts and Rift-to-Gos could make surprise assaults using only Shockwave Grenades a blast.

The idea is not completely sound, but just with like the LTM’s before such as Close Encounters and High Explosives, players could find unique ways to come on top.

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.

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.
