Fortnite’s new V7.30 Content Update has officially gone live, giving fans a look at one of the newest additions to the game, Bottle Rockets.

Bottle Rockets were officially announced via the game’s built-in news feed on Sunday, February 2, with the caption “Loud, bright and dangerous! Warning: Do not light indoors.”


Now, the new weapon has officially launched in Fortnite, and players already getting a glimpse at how powerful this item could turn out to be.

Bottle Rockets were included in the V7.30 Content Update.

In a clip posted to Fortnite’s Twitter account, a group of players can be seen running into a Durr Burger location to take cover from an oncoming enemy onslaught. Instead of building or charging into the diner after them, the rushing team took a different approach, instead placing down the Bottle Rocket item.


Once lit, fireworks are seen flying away towards the Durr Burger, dealing damage to the building and destroying most of it in less than 10 seconds.

The item fires 45 rockets in the space of nine seconds, and deals 10 damage to enemy players with each explosion, and 40 points of damage to environmental and player built structures.

Fortnite fans are already unhappy with the new item, with one fan calling them “Another nerf to building in Fortnite” while watching the items destroy parts of the castle inside Polar Peak in seconds.

Players will only be able to place down two at any one time, but a full squad with a number of these items could quickly tear down an enemy building in a matter of seconds, much like the now vaulted Boombox.

The V7.30 Content Update also included an update to the campfires found in the game, along with various improvements and changes. Make sure you get caught up on everything that is coming in the new update by reading the V7.30 Content Update patch notes.

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)
  • Enter the Vault in Doom’s Domain
  • Destroy Cobwebs at The Authority (3)
  • Discover Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House laboratory
  • Drive a car from Sweaty Sands to Misty Meadows in less than 4 minutes without getting out
  • Deal damage after knocking an opponent back with Storm’s Whirlwind Blast (1,000)
  • Deal damage to opponents at Coral Castle (500)

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.
