It’s no secret that the majority of the Fortnite community wants to see Mounted Turrets either heavily nerfed or removed from the game.

The item has quickly become one of the most overpowered additions in the history of the game, and the bane of almost every player’s existence. 

Popular Twitch streamer Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop, who specializes in playing and casting Fortnite, has come up with a set of nerfs that Epic Games can administer to the turrets to make them more balanced.

In a post he put out on Twitter, CouRage contends that Epic should change the max quantity of turrets that players can carry to one so that two can’t be placed next to each other to avoid the cooldown period.

He also proposes that the turrets should be decreased in overall size, which would further expose the player’s head and body and open them up for counterfire. 

The final nerf that he suggests is establishing a setup time for the turret, so that players will have to wait a brief moment while their turret activates.

This would prevent players who are in the middle of a gunfight or heated engagement from suddenly dropping it down and instantly begin firing.

While these suggestions would certainly nerf the Mounted Turrets, there is still no guarantee that it will stop them from being overpowered.

Since their release, Epic have already rolled out three hotfixes to reduce the turrets’ effectiveness, and they still remain a considerable force to be reckoned with. 

While no one knows what will eventually happen with the turrets, it’s inevitable that something will eventually have to be done, and many are hoping that Epic decide to just vault the item rather than experiment with it any further.

Fortnite’s Marvel-themed Season 4 takeover is almost winding down, but there’s still plenty of opportunities to grab some last-minute XP boosts with our guide on the Week 10 challenges.

Season 4 of Fortnite has seen tons of new content over the weeks. On top of the ample supply of cosmetic unlocks, Epic has deployed everything from new abilities to secret challenges.

With the ongoing storyline teasing major changes each passing update, time is of the essence to get everything done before we reached Season 5. Once the rare items are gone from the game, there’s no chance at claiming them anytime in the future.

So if you’re trying to make every minute count and get the most of your experience gains, weekly challenges are for you.

Things couldn’t be simpler this time around and we’ve got you covered with everything there is to know about the week 10 objectives.

You’ll need to prioritizing vehicles early on to tick the latest challenges off your list.

First up, all of the usual tasks are listed once again. You’ll need to search some chests, find some quick kills, and collect various resources. These can all be smashed out in the blink of an eye without any real difficulty.

Vehicles will be a big priority over the next few days as there are three unique challenges to tick off. One will have you racing from The Fortilla to The Authority in under four minutes. Meanwhile, the other simply asks you to stay in a vehicle for a long period of time and travel the map.

Arguably the most difficult of the vehicle-specific challenges, you’ll need to eliminate a few enemies with them. This means you may have to catch some opposing players by surprise. Be on the lookout for explosives that could end your run before it really begins.

You can blitz through a handful of these activities at the same time but others require a more focused effort. Below is the full list of challenges for the latest week in Fortnite.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 10 Challenges

  • Search Chests at Upstate New York
  • Eliminations at Lazy Lake
  • Collect Metal from Slurpy Swamp
  • Catch fish at Heart Lake
  • Eliminate opponents by hitting them with vehicles
  • Drive a boat from The Fortilla to The Authority in less than 4 minutes
  • Ride 20,000 meters in a vehicle
  • Deal damage to opponents at Sentinel Graveyard
