Fortnite’s mobile players are already looked down on by PC and console players, but that could be about to get so much worse after Epic Games’ latest announcement.

In what could be seen as a significant moment for the developer in trying to close the gap across all platforms, those playing on their smartphones can now sync up a Bluetooth controller to play Fortnite against both PC and console gamers.


The new Fortnite v7.30 patch notes show a number of controllers which will be supported right now, just 11 months after the game first launched on Android and iOS.

The Chiller Grenade was one of the new items to be added in Fortnite’s v7.30 patch.

Fortnite will support a number of Android Bluetooth controller adapters, including: Steelseries Stratus XL, Xbox1, Gamevice, Moto Gamepad and Razer Raiju.


iOS players can use MFi controllers such as Gamevice or Steelseries Nimbus.

While iOS Fortnite players have had the option to upgrade to 60 FPS since November
of last year, this new update is a continuation of Epic rolling out that mode for Android.

Three selected Android devices – the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 (USA), Huawei Honor View 20 and Huawei Mate 20 X – can now be used in 60 FPS.


These changes are significant steps in the right direction, in terms of streamlining the game across all platforms – and is particularly good news for mobile players, who are typically frowned upon by PC and console players.

Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins has doubted the qualities of mobile players in the past.

When a good player on mobile does come along, the past tells us that people doubt that they’re even “legit” – as Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins did with AdamxLegend. The latter responded by uploading an epic video to YouTube, showing his pro level editing on Fortnite. 

Will this new change make mobile players even better?

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.
