According to leaked game files, a brand new Legendary glider is coming soon to the Item Shop of Fortnite: Battle Royale.

Called ‘Laser Chomp,’ the glider joins the ‘Royale Dragon’ as the only two gliders in the game that are of Legendary rarity.

The image, name, and rarity of the Laser Chomp was leaked by fnbr.co, a database of Fortnite’s various cosmetic items and emotes.

This glider is part of the new batch of cosmetic items coming as part of the v5.1.0 Update.

It was separately announced as an upcoming item by Fortnite news outlet FortniteINTEL, whotweeted out an image of the glider.

The Laser Chomp features a great white shark with a red laser emitter attached to its head and body. Although the price of this glider has not yet been announced or leaked, all Legendary items tend to cost 2,000 V-Bucks, equivalent to $20 USD. 

However, it is not yet clear when this item will actually be released in the Item Shop, although it should not be too long following the launch of v5.1.0 Update.

Since the Royale Dragon releases a profoundly thunderous set of motions and sounds when it opens, many expect this new glider to have some distinguishable animations, likely to involve the attached laser.

The concept of using sharks with lasers attached to their heads is not exactly Fortnite’s own idea, as anyone who has watched the films Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery and Goldmember would tell you.

The movies’ antagonist, known as Dr. Evil, had quite a fondness for using laser equipped sharks as a way of torturing and eliminating his enemies and victims, as can be seen in the clips provided below.

Who would have thought at the time that years later, one of the most popular video games in history would turn Dr. Evil’s malicious vision into an animated gliding device.

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.

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.
