Epic Games have released part two of the Fortnite v9.30 content update, bringing the new Drum Shotgun to the battle royale game mode, as well as some new prefabs for Creative and the Boom Bow arrives in Save the World.

With the entirety of the development studio off for a well-deserved summer break, Epic have set some scheduled updates to go live to keep avid players entertained.

There’s also the 14 Days of Summer event, which grants a new challenge and reward every day for players, so there is still plenty to do.

In addition to unvaulting a new weapon every day, they have also added a brand new weapon into the mix for battle royale, and it’s yet another shotgun.

This new weapon features a unique drum magazine design, hence its name, and will deal a hefty 45 / 47 / 50 points of damage per shot (depending on the rarity).

Coming in three different rarities – common, uncommon and rare – it’s available as floor loot as well as from vending machines and Loot Carriers, finding the new weapon shouldn’t be too tricky.

If you’re looking to take a break from the battle royale mode though, there’s also some content for Creative and Save the World.

Another new set of prefabs and galleries will allow you to use the buildings seen in Paradise Palms in Creative mode, and four ‘festive heroes have returned to Save the World.

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

Expect the Sentinel Graveyard to be a hot drop for the next week.

You’ve still got a few weeks left to finish up the Season 4 Battle Pass. Though you may want to start rushing through not only these weekly tasks, but the secret challenges too. 

Every scrap of XP will help as you look to unlock the final rewards in the Marvel-centric update.
