Epic Games have dropped some map changes on Fortnite following the V12.20 update – with damage to The Rig being the headline tweak. 

In previous seasons, notably Fortnite Season 10, the whole focus of new updates was on changes to the map so that players had something that was pretty much ever-changing to look forward to.

With the start of Fortnite Chapter 2, map changes haven’t been as frequent as they once were but following the V12.20 update in Chapter 2, Season 2, players have got some twists and turns to look forward to once they drop into the battle royale.

The Rig

The biggest change in this set of map changes comes from The Rig. The location was added at the start of season two and plays into the Top Secret theme as it is home to TNTina – one of the five new boss characters.

However, if you drop onto the location now, you’re going to find that plenty of destruction has occurred. Pieces of The Rig have been destroyed and there is twisted metal all over – while plenty of Oil has begun to leak out into the water and head towards Slurpy Swamp.

Pleasant Park

Elsewhere, any players who drop at Pleasant Park will note that the secret underground bunker that was previously tricky to get into, can now be accessed by the Soccer field.

The part of the pitch that was closest towards the middle of Pleasant – where the wooden hut and campfire sit – has parted ways and revealed the secret bunker. The location also has a helipad symbol on the floor too.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the change to Pleasant cannot be seen on the updated battle royale map, but the Oil spill from The Rig is pretty clear to see.

If that will have any future effect on the map, however, still remains to be seen, but it wouldn’t be out of the realm of possibility to consider this a potential hint for future changes from Epic

With more and more players downloading the new update and hopping into Fortnite, there could well be even more tweaks to the map that haven’t been uncovered just yet.

If anything else changes, we will be sure to update this article. For now, though, be sure to check out the changes at The Rig and Pleasant for yourself in-game.

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)

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.
