Fortnite’s v10.31 Update has arrived, and brings with it a number of map changes to the island, including new updates for Dusty Depot and Tilted Town.

Map changes are extremely important in a battle royale title like Fortnite, as where you land can make the difference between a Victory Royale, or heading back to the Battle Bus early.

Throughout Season 10, Epic Games have been bringing back classic points-of-interest with strange twists, and in the v10.31 Update, the developers made some changes to two legendary locations that will have big ramifications on the popular battle royale title. With the patch now live on all platforms, here’s everything you need to know about the changes made to the landscape.

Dusty Depot

The Visitor has been hard at work over the last few weeks, building a strange scaffolding above one of the three warehouses that sit at the legendary location.

Dusty has already been the home of the Rift Beacon construction project, with the metallic objects appearing at a number of points-of-interest throughout Season 10, just days before they were transformed into strange versions with bizarre rules. While The Visitor has sent out another Rift Beacon, he’s been hard at work inside the third building, and it looks like Fortnite is edging closer to a major in-game event. 

Leaks have suggested that a rocket is being constructed here, and following the v10.31 Update, the bottom portion of the impressive vehicle has appeared, with more of the rocket expected to be built over the next few weeks.

Tilted Town

The popular location in the west of the island has undergone some major transformations in its time, starting life as Tilted Towers, becoming a sprawling futuristic metropolis known as Neo Tilted, and traveling back in time to the wild west under the guise of Tilted Town.

With Rift Beacons popping up in locations before a major update, Tilted Town looks like it’s going to become the first point-of-interest to undergo a second transformation, with another of the mechanical contraptions appearing in the old fashioned town. 

According to leaks, we can expect to see Gotham City from the legendary Batman franchise take its place, with data miners revealing that the Caped Crusader will be invading the popular battle royale game, likely in time to celebrate Batman Day on September 21 or to promote the upcoming Joker movie which releases on October 4.

Cube Island

Cube Island is on the move again, and has made its way back up to the northwest corner of the island. It has been floating above Greasy Grove for a week, but with the release of the v10.31 Update, it’s now close to Junk Junction, although it’s currently sitting out in the open, and not targeting a specific point-of-interest.

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.

Additionally, Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House can be found just North of the Stark Industries POI.
