Epic Games has announced the release date and time for the upcoming v5.1.0 Update in Fortnite: Battle Royale.

The Update is set to go live on July 24 at 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 0900 BST and will require downtime, which means that matchmaking will go down 20-25 minutes prior to launch.


The announcement for the new Patch was made via a post on the official Fortnite twitter page.

There’s a party and you’re invited! Patch v5.10 releases tomorrow, July 24 and it marks #Fortnite1st birthday.
Take a peek at the Patch Notes once downtime begins at 4 AM ET to learn what goodies are coming.

In recent days, Epic has alluded to the Patch v5.10 including a lot of new content and in-game adjustments, making it one of the more anticipated updates in recent weeks.


Coming to the game will be the Fortnite1st limited time in-game event, which will feature themed cosmetic items and challenges in celebration of the game’s first birthday.

Also being introduced will be the brand new Compact SMG weapon, which is set to come in Epic and Legendary rarities.

Furthermore, there will be major improvements made to the Slurp Juice, as it will now provide 75 points of healing and prioritize health first, after which the remaining points will all go towards the shield.


The Patch will also include all of the changes made to the Playground Limited Time Mode, which is being added back to the game on July 25

As has been the case for most game updates, v5.1.0 should include a variety of new skins, back blings, pickaxes, gliders, and emotes that will be released in the Item Shop in the following days and weeks.

Data miners will very likely sift through game files and leak out any new cosmetic items in the hours after the update goes live.

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
  • Destroy Cobwebs at The Authority (3)
  • Discover Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House laboratory
  • Drive a car from Sweaty Sands to Misty Meadows in less than 4 minutes without getting out
  • Deal damage after knocking an opponent back with Storm’s Whirlwind Blast (1,000)
  • Deal damage to opponents at Coral Castle (500)

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.
