NickEh30 has an idea for a new Fortnite consumable that would make farming a lot easier

Fortnite players are always coming up with new ideas of how the game can be improved and this latest concept is one of the most interesting yet.

While farming for materials is essential to success in Fortnite at all levels, this is especially true in the competitive scene where players use hundreds of materials in every engagement.


YouTuber Nicholas ‘Nick Eh 30’ Amyoony has come up with an idea for an in-game consumable that would shake up the farming meta in a big way if ever implemented into the game.

Instead of having to farm for materials the old-fashioned way, Nick’s consumable will allow players to consume every farmable object in a given area by simply tossing the item like a grenade.


Given the manner in which this item would change the way materials are obtained, it’s no surprise that one of the earliest pioneers of building in Fortnite, Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani, was quick to weigh in on the potential that the item could allow players to easily gain too many materials.

Nick responded to Myth’s concerns quickly, saying that a material cap could put in place to ensure that players don’t end up with too many mats from one use of the item.  

The response seemed to be a solid one, as the TSM captain responded saying “this would be a really good solution.”


While the overall feedback for the item is overwhelming positive given that it’s at 74% “yay” votes after over 15,000 votes at the time of writing, not everyone is keen the idea of a new item.

100 Thieves Fortnite pro Archie ‘Parallax’ Shrader seemed to think that instead of adding in a new item, farming material as a whole should receive a buff.

Whatever route, if any, Epic Games end up taking when it comes to farming, the developer has been known to look at ideas like this very closely and it wouldn’t a surprise to see some changes in the future.

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)

  • Discover Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House laboratory

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.
