Fortnite’s Marvel themed Season 4 is only a few weeks in, but the ongoing storyline continues to evolve as new leaks have revealed Tony Stark’s next move – one that involves the iconic Battle Bus.

Since Fortnite’s release in 2017, the bus has been a staple of the battle royale experience. It’s how every match begins and it’s how every player drops into the map. Other games have pivoted to planes, individual drop pods, and plenty of other ideas. All the while, Fortnite’s Battle Bus has remained constant.

Other than adding the option to thank the bus driver, there haven’t been many changes to the classic feature. Occasionally it’ll get a new coat for paint for special occasions, but that’s about it. However, the Battle Bus could soon be in for its biggest overhaul to date, if new leaks hold true.

Tony Stark has his sights set on changing the Fortnite bus in the weeks to come. Here’s how the Marvel figure is looking to upgrade it.

An “Upgraded Battle Bus” is what slipped through the cracks in the last Fortnite update on Sep. 23. Thanks to prominent dataminers ‘iFireMonkey’ and ‘HYPEX,’ we’re able to see just what this upgraded version looks and sounds like.

A new version of the bus texture features a bunch of added cabling all around. From wires along the sides to containers and miscellaneous tech on the roof, something big is in the works. It’s worth noting that this version on display was merely labeled “BusUpgrade1,” meaning that future upgrades could be on the way too.

Leaked audio files make the bus sound a lot quieter than usual after takeoff. Perhaps it’s running on Stark’s Arc Reactor power source, paving the way for improvements?

There’s no telling just when the upgrades might go through, though Stark is already tinkering away in-game from the looks of it.

“The Battle Bus can now be found inside the workshop at Stark Industries,” Reddit user ‘updoggggggg’ shared on September 24.

Barely at the halfway point of the season, there’s still plenty of time for changes to come through. There’s a chance it may even be upgrading the bus for a future off-planet battle tied into the Season 4 narrative. We’ll have to wait and see.

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.
