Here’s why Fortnite’s Battle Bus needs to change in the future

Fortnite’s Battle Bus has been moving players near their favorite places to drop ever since the game was released, but could it be improved? 

The transport bus is attached to a huge balloon and moves across the entire map at the start of every game, allowing players to jump from it and start their hunt for a Victory Royale. 


However, some Fortnite players think that by making one simple change, Epic Games could make Battle Royale mode a whole lot better. 

The Fortnite Battle Bus has been functioning in the same way since Season 1.

In a post to the Fortnite BR subreddit, Issabot8 has proposed that the Battle Bus’ routes should take a different direction in order to allow players to easily reach places that they might not usually start at – because of their distance from the bus. 


“The Battle Bus should turn about a 40 degree angle each game. This change could spread players around the map” the Reddit user posted, along with the diagram which can be found below.

“It could also make it easier to travel to farther locations from the Battle Bus, rather than arriving at a location with not much time to loot” they added. 

Apart from aesthetic tweaks, there hasn’t been many changes to the Fortnite Battle Bus since the game was first released in July of last year. Would this make life a bit easier for Fortnite players?

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)

Stark Industries will be swarmed by teams looking for the secret Lake House

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.
