To finish Fortnite’s Week 7 challenges, you’ll have to destroy Slurp Barrels. Here’s the best location to find them and quickly complete the task at hand.

Another week of Fortnite action means another set of weekly challenges for players to complete. There may have just been a big v15.20 update, but that doesn’t mean Epic has forgotten about the Week 7 challenges.

As well as some standard quests like consuming shield potions and searching chests, players looking to earn enough XP to level up and fill out their Battle Pass will need to destroy a set number of Slurp Barrels.

Here’s the best location where you can find Slurp Barrels and get this challenge ticked off.

There are loads of Slurp Barrels to be found at Slurpy Swamp in Fortnite.

Dedicated Fortnite players will know that one of the best places to find Slurp of any kind is at Slurpy Swamp. As the name suggests, this point of interest is full of the good stuff that helps restore your health and shield.

The location, which is actually a Slurp factory, is home to giant Slurp Silos, Slurp Trucks, and even Slurp-infused water that will slowly heal you if you stand in it for a prolonged period of time. But what you’re looking for right now are Slurp Barrels.

Once you leave the Battle Bus at the start of a new match, you’ll want to land straight into Slurpy Swamp as quickly as you can and get searching for the barrels; this area will no doubt be busy over the next week as many of the Week 7 challenges can be completed here.

You’ll find more than enough Slurp Barrels at this Fortnite location.

Slurp Barrels can be found dotted in multiple locations around the area, and often come in sets of two or three (and sometimes four), meaning it shouldn’t take you too long to find them all.

There’s a building to the northeast of Slurpy Swamp that you should definitely pay a visit to, as it contains multiple Slurp Barrels for you to stumble across. The section we’ve marked on the map above has eight barrels bunched together.

Once you find the barrels, simply destroy them with a few hits of your pickaxe. Get a grand total of 10, and you’ll have completed this week’s challenge and earned yourself a sweet 20,000 XP.

While you’re already here, it’s probably a good idea to complete a few other weekly challenges such as ‘Search Chests in Slurpy Swamp’ and ‘Visit Houses in Slurpy Swamp in One Match’ as well.

Epic Games sues Apple & Google in UK over Fortnite removals

Following litigation over Fortnite’s app store removals by Apple and Google in the United States of America, Epic Games have officially mounted lawsuits against both tech companies in the United Kingdom, as well.

In August 2020, Epic Games added their own payment process to Fortnite’s mobile offerings so that Apple and Google’s cellphone and tablet users could purchase in-game items at a discounted price. This discount was specifically enabled by the new process, which bypassed each company’s transaction fees. 

Unsurprisingly, as the payment method was in direct violation of both the App Store and Play Store’s Terms of Services, each company subsequently removed Fornite from their offerings. And, expecting this, Epic Games responded by launching lawsuits against the companies in the U.S. and Australia. 

Now, the makers behind the world’s most popular third-person battle royale have tripled down and mounted legal action against both tech giants in the U.K. Citing violations of competition laws, Epic Games’ legal case in the U.K. is very similar to the ones already made in other countries. And, immediately contested, Apple and Google’s responses have proved similar, as well.

As discussed by BBC News, Epic have officially submitted documents to the Competition Appeal Tribunal in the UK. The allegations suggest a monopolistic abuse of power by each company that centers around competitive restrictions to app store and payment processing options, as well as unfair payment fees.

Typically, those fees come at about 30 percent of all purchases, although exact figures differ depending on company and app. Fortnite is obviously one of the biggest games in the entire world, so almost one-third of their sales on mobile means hefty earnings.

But, like their other lawsuits, Epic allege that this is about more than their own profits. The company demands that Apple and Google begin allowing software developers to institute their own payment-processing systems and options to be downloaded outside of the App and Play stores.

Fortnite has always delighted its fanbase with purchasable cosmetics.

So far, Apple and Google have both replied similarly in the U.K. situation, claiming that they are open to reintroducing Fortnite to their mobile stores but that they deny any violation of competitiveness.

Dexerto will continue to monitor the legal cases in each country, providing updates whenever these prolonged legal disputes begin reaching their conclusions.
