Fortnite players uncover another overpowered feature of Mounted Turrets

The Mounted Turrets have been the subject of much controversy and discussion since its release and it looks like players now have one more thing to talk about with a new discovery.

Mounted Turrets were introduced to Fortnite with the v6.30 update and have cause many players to call for widespread fixes or the straight up removal of the item from the game.


With no plans to vault the item have been revealed, it looks like there might be a new adjustment that needs to be made to the controversial item.

It turns out that in addition to just be an overall oppressive force when used, it also completely protects the user from being targeted by aim assist.


Reddit user ‘Mr_Dragzzz’ posted a short video demonstrating the discovery, as they try to target the player sitting in the Turret using aim assist without much success.

Every time Mr_Dragzzz goes to aim at the opponent in the Turret, the aim assist snaps to the base of the turret, causing him to have to fight against the aim assist to actually get a shot off on the player.

While one user in the comments to the post said that this sort of thing happens with all vehicles in Fortnite, it seems a bit odd given that the Mounted Turret is technically classified as a trap.


Another user even pointed out the irony of the newly discovered issue, saying it’s “kinda ironic because aim assist is supposed to help [lead] you onto the enemy.”

Given that Epic Games have already issued multiple updates to the Mounted Turret thus far, it wouldn’t be too much of a shock to see another adjustment come in the near future.

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.
