Despite appearing in the launch trailer for Fortnite Season 3, a number of new vehicles are still yet to pop up in-game and a new delay has now set them back even further.

Leaks early into the season assured that an assortment of new vehicles would be arriving on July 21. Fortnite’s v13.30 patch has since come and gone and while plenty of information has leaked, new cars are yet to appear on the map.

We know that there will be at least six new additions ranging from small cars to trucks. They’ll even come boasting all-new fuel mechanics to keep things balanced. New statistics also slipped through the cracks in the latest update too, highlighting just how powerful these cars will be.

All of this information seemingly pointed towards an imminent release, but vehicles won’t be making their way to the battle royale just yet, Epic has revealed.

“Our lawyers are currently sweating the policy details and fixing typos like ‘otter coverage’ instead of auto coverage. Due to this, many vehicles got taken for inspection,” Epic Games shared through the official Fortnite Twitter account on July 23. “Expect a few weeks until we’re road-ready.”

Fortnite’s Season 3 reveal showcased a wide array of these vehicles in action. Given that we’re now well underway with the current season, these vehicles were expected to arrive soon. A tongue in cheek tweet revealed we’re going to have to hold our breath a little while longer, however.

While there’s no telling just how far along the features are, this wording implies that they’re not quite polished enough. Developers at Epic need a little while longer to work out the kinks, but could these new vehicles be held until Season 4?

The current season is expected to wrap up on August 27, rolling straight into the next major content drop. This also means that the Summer Splash event will come to an end as well. With a few extra weeks needed to ensure that the vehicles work as intended, that leaves little room to fit them in with Season 3.

A potential solution could be to extend the current season entirely. Due to the ongoing global crisis, Epic made the difficult decision to delay its most recent in-game event. Therefore, Season 4 plans could be put on hold just as well. Giving vehicles the proper time to bask in the spotlight as they round out Season 3.

There’s no telling exactly when you’ll be able to get behind the wheel of a sports car in Fortnite. However, a few weeks implies mid to late August, so keep your eyes peeled for future announcements.

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.
