Epic Games have announced the release date and time for the v6.30 content update in Fortnite.

The update is set to go live on November 20 at 5 AM PT / 8 AM ET / 4 PM GMT and will likely not require any downtime, which has been the case for all content update in the past.

Unlike regular game updates, content updates do not require any downtime because they only manage new and existing content in the game, and do not include any major adjustments or changes to core mechanics or gameplay. 

The announcement for this latest content update, which is the first of its kind to be released since the start of Season 6, was made on November 19 via a post on the official Fortnite Twitter page.

Since the patch notes for this content update will not be released until it goes live, there is no way to know what content will exactly be added into the game.

One new addition that has been confirmed is the all-new Dynamite item, which appeared in the pre-lobby Message of the Day announcement screen on November 19.

“Light the fuse and wait for the boom!” reads the in-game description of the new item.

Along with the Dynamite, another addition expected to be made in the v6.30 content update is the new Wild West Limited Time Mode.

Although the arrival of the new LTM has not been officially announced, the wording used in the tweet seems to give it away, in addition to the fact that details about the mode were found and leaked by data miners last week

According to early reports, the Dynamite item was expected to come as part of the Wild West LTM, although that now seems unlikely given the way the new item was announced for the battle royale in general.

Aside from the two things listed above, players can also expect the new update to add some new cosmetic items and possible map changes. If there are any cosmetics added, data miners will likely find and leak them within hours of the update going live.

Make sure to follow us@Dexerto and monitor the Dexerto Fortnite page as we will provide details on any leaked cosmetics, the full patch notes, details on all changes, and more.

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.
