Fortnite v8.10 officially released on Tuesday, March 12, and data miners have already found a new Poison Dart Trap that appears to be coming soon to the popular battle royale title.

The v8.10 update for Fortnite brought a host of new changes such as the brand new Baller vehicle, weapons balancing updates and a massive change to how Vending Machines will work in the game moving forward.

While going through the game’s update files, data miners appear to have gotten their hands on a brand new trap that will likely make an appearance in the game in the near future – the Poison Dart Trap.

As first reported on ForntiteINTEL, the Poison Dart Trap will has been found in the game’s files, although there is currently no official visual assets for the item as of yet.

Found by data miner FortTory, little is known about the trap, but if Epic Games have added it to the games files, it’s likely that we will see it make an appearance in the popular battle royale title in the near future.

Not much is known about how much damage the item will do, but it’s possible that a Poison Dart will damage players over a period of time, much like how damage is inflicted when players stand in the vicinity of a Stink Bomb.

It appears that Epic Games have already started to hint at the new item, as the loading screen for Week 3 of the Discovery challenges features a Sidewinder skin running through a barrage of arrows.

Some believe that the Poison Dart Trap may be used as part of a new version of the popular Getaway Limited Time Mode, while others theorize that it is simply going to be a new addition to the base battle royale game.

There is no official release date for the Poison Dart Trap, but stay tuned to Dexerto for more information as it becomes available.

Fortnite’s Marvel-themed Season 4 takeover is almost winding down, but there’s still plenty of opportunities to grab some last-minute XP boosts with our guide on the Week 10 challenges.

Season 4 of Fortnite has seen tons of new content over the weeks. On top of the ample supply of cosmetic unlocks, Epic has deployed everything from new abilities to secret challenges.

With the ongoing storyline teasing major changes each passing update, time is of the essence to get everything done before we reached Season 5. Once the rare items are gone from the game, there’s no chance at claiming them anytime in the future.

So if you’re trying to make every minute count and get the most of your experience gains, weekly challenges are for you.

Things couldn’t be simpler this time around and we’ve got you covered with everything there is to know about the week 10 objectives.

You’ll need to prioritizing vehicles early on to tick the latest challenges off your list.

First up, all of the usual tasks are listed once again. You’ll need to search some chests, find some quick kills, and collect various resources. These can all be smashed out in the blink of an eye without any real difficulty.

Vehicles will be a big priority over the next few days as there are three unique challenges to tick off. One will have you racing from The Fortilla to The Authority in under four minutes. Meanwhile, the other simply asks you to stay in a vehicle for a long period of time and travel the map.

Arguably the most difficult of the vehicle-specific challenges, you’ll need to eliminate a few enemies with them. This means you may have to catch some opposing players by surprise. Be on the lookout for explosives that could end your run before it really begins.

You can blitz through a handful of these activities at the same time but others require a more focused effort. Below is the full list of challenges for the latest week in Fortnite.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 10 Challenges

  • Search Chests at Upstate New York
  • Eliminations at Lazy Lake
  • Collect Metal from Slurpy Swamp
  • Catch fish at Heart Lake
  • Eliminate opponents by hitting them with vehicles
  • Drive a boat from The Fortilla to The Authority in less than 4 minutes
  • Ride 20,000 meters in a vehicle
  • Deal damage to opponents at Sentinel Graveyard
