An all-new Fortnite leak has revealed that an anti-Choppa rocket launcher is in the works – and it might be pretty deadly. 

When the first season of Fortnite Chapter 2 came to an end, fans of Epic Games’ battle royale finally got what they’d been looking for – a raft of brand new content. That came in the form of a storyline for the season, NPC characters, and new locations – as well as a few new weapons to spice up the loot pool.

As Chapter 2, Season 2 has progressed, there have been a handful of new weapons and deadly items added to the battle royale, with leakers also uncovering plenty of others that could soon be added to the mix as well.

Henchmen were added as new content for Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 2.

Popular Fortnite data miner iFireMonkey was able to uncover another new weapon that is currently only known by its codename: MistyBop.

According to the leaker’s information, this new weapon would be a Rocket Launcher with a special ability that would allow players to use it to lock on to a Choppa pretty quickly and bring it down with a few blasts.

Though there is no image or animation of the new weapon in action, there are two sound files related to the weapon that the leaker uncovered – with one seemingly being the warning a Choppa pilot would have when they come into the weapon’s crosshairs. 

Some Fortnite fans might question the need for a weapon that can quickly dispose of the Choppa – seeing as the aerial vehicle is pretty harmless compared to others. Yet, plenty will no doubt welcome it seeing as it’s inclusion would no doubt help keep the game fresh.

However, it’s difficult to say as to when players might be able to wield one in-game, especially as there were five other weapons leaked on April 8. We’ll just have to wait and see as to what Epic does.

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.
