Dirty Docks has returned to normal on the Fortnite map after the water level has, once again, been knocked down a notch. Here’s everything you need to know about this set of map changes. 

After Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 3 opened up with a water-filled map, many of the fan-favorite spots were taken away. Players had to reconsider their landing locations and rotations while water was at it highest point.


Over the course of the season, however, Epic Games have been decreasing the water level ever so slightly. In recent weeks, the water has been drained quite significantly, with spots like Risky Reels and Craggy Cliffs returning to their normal forms.

On July 27, the water level dropped yet again, and a few other spots are now viable to hit up.

Fortnite Map Changes – July 27

The main change following the water level update comes over at Dirty Docks. The popular landing spot had been rising from the water for a few weeks, but now, is it back to normal. You can head over there and plunder metal to your heart’s content. 

On the other side of the map, Slurp Factory is almost at its normal form. It’s still got a bit of water lying around but if you’re after some free Slurp barrels, you can get it over there.

Sadly, the swamp where you could get free shields just by standing in certain parts is still affected by the water. You can’t go and sit under the exit pipe and rack up all the free shield you want.

Elsewhere, the Ancient Astronaut’s spaceship behind Craggy Cliffs in almost at surface level. It’s now much more visible underwater, but you can’t do anything with it.

The Shark has also changed quite a bit, but if you’re expecting plenty of looting there, don’t get excited. Like The Yacht, it’s very beaten up and lots of the chests and materials are missing.

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
  • Deal damage after knocking an opponent back with Storm’s Whirlwind Blast (1,000)
  • Deal damage to opponents at Coral Castle (500)

Stark Industries will be swarmed by teams looking for the secret Lake House

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.
