NickEh30 Has a Suggestion to Improve the Waypoints in Fortnite Battle Royale

Popular YouTuber NickEh30 has suggested a new feature for Fortnite Battle Royale which would see a change to waypoints and make them significantly more useful.

Fortnite Battle Royale has taken the gaming world by storm since its release in September of 2017 and has quickly become the most talked about game of 2018.


With such rapid growth, new players are joining the Fortnite train at a rate of knots but they often find themselves heavily outskilled by the players that have already had months of practice.

The learning curve can certainly be a steep one, and popular Fortnite YouTuber, and streamer, NickEh30 has now put forward an idea that could make life a little bit easier for less knowledgeable players.


The suggestion wouldn’t have any direct impact on gameplay. Instead, it would bring a change to the waypoints (or markers) that players place on the map when they want to go to a specific destination.

NickEh30 thinks that it would be interesting to implement a distance measurement on these markers so that players could know how long it would take to reach various destinations, and perhaps even predict whether they can outrun the storm.

This suggestion would allow players to make more informed, smart decisions when trying to loot and outrun the storm, but the YouTuber does point out that it could also make life too easy.


Some people would say that predicting the speed of the storm, and knowing the game well enough to predict where you can get to in a certain time, is a skill that should be honed through practice and multiple hours of play time.

However, the idea is certainly an interesting one and might even be something that Epic Games could implement in a Limited Time Mode as a test before deciding whether to make it a feature or not.

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

  • Discover Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House laboratory

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.
