Fortnite players find the only cover that the Mounted Turret can’t destroy

Lucky Fortnite fans have finally found a way to escape from the Mounted Turret item in Fortnite – by hiding behind the only item it can’t destroy!

The Mounted Turret was added during the V6.30 patch for Fortnite Battle Royale, as an item that players could place down, sit inside of and shoot enormous volumes of ammo at enemies in a short space of time.


The hitbox for players sitting inside of the turret is incredibly difficult to hit, meaning that if you come across an opponent sitting in one, you are likely in a whole heap of trouble.

The item has been a controversial addition to Fortnite Battle Royale.

Unfortunately for Reddit user Flluxor, he came across an enemy player using one at the Leaky Links golf course, and could only watch in horror as it begin to destroy the cover he was hiding behind.


Attempting to build ramps to protect himself, the Mounted Turret continued to rip them apart, leaving Flluxor diving for cover behind the only hiding place he had left, a grey vending machine.

Much to his surprise, the Turret’s bullets ricocheted off the machine, but didn’t actually break the item, giving him a safe place to rest until he was able to peak out from behind it and snipe his opponent out of it.

The Mounted Turret has been a controversial inclusion to the popular battle royale title, with many fans, including pro players like 100 Thieves’ Parallax and FaZe Clan’s Tfue both calling for the item to be removed.

Fortnite have attempted to nerf the weapon, changing it’s spawn rate on Friday, November 16 and then announcing another change to the item in the V6.31 client update.

While this trick is situational, as you need to be close to a vending machine when an enemy pulls out the mounted turret, it might help you avoid death if you happen to be near one!

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.
