Fortnite players have found a new use for the Mounted Turret in conjunction with the pyramid-build in close-combat scenarios.

The Mounted Turret has been a point of contention since its release in v6.30. Since its launch, hotfixes to the item have already been applied multiple times.


YouTuber ‘Martoz’ demonstrates ‘vL_Niwra‘’s newfound strategy on how a Mounted Turret could be used in lieu of a traditional trap when engaged in a buildfight.

“Whenever you Pyramid someone that runs over you and you trap them in [and] you don’t have a trap to place but you do have a turret, all you have to do is place a turret on your floor and it breaks his ramp,” Martoz said.


Note, instead of using the actual Mounted Turret, all the trick requires placing the item under the opposing player to instantly change the dynamic of the fight.

The moment the turret is placed, it breaks the ramp and drops the player down to your level. This split-second change of scenery gives the opportune moment to take out a weapon and unload on the unsuspecting foe.

Epic GamesSince the Mounted Turret has been added, gunfights in Fortnite have only gotten crazier!

The trick is straightforward, but an interesting new twist on the Mounted Turrets’ application.


Like previous items before, whenever a new weapon hits the live servers players tend to reinvent its purpose in fun ways.

Epic Games have been trying to figure out the best combination of features to balance the Mounted Turrets, but this is likely a feature they never even thought of in the first place.

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)
