Popular Fortnite content creator SypherPK has revealed a few secrets with the different cars in the battle royale – and some are pretty useful. 

After much anticipation, the Joyride Cars were finally added to Fortnite’s Battle Royale mode with the V13.40 patch. The cars, which range from the sporty Whiplash to the slower Mudflap, have been dotted around the map.


As players have been able to get behind the wheel and use the cars to rotate and move around the map more efficiently, some are starting to cotton on to which ones are better than others and how best to use them. 

However, there a few secrets that are worth knowing that could help you get the best out of your favorite car.

Fortnite cars secret tips and tricks

The tips and tricks come courtesy of SypherPK’s newest video, as he revealed that the Mudflap is two times faster off-road compared to the Whiplash. That’s probably not a major shock, the sports car would be super overpowered if it performed well off-road, so its best to stick to the tarmac. 

Though, you can take the cars up in the sky just a little. That’s right, if you hit a Crash Pad, you will be given a “decent boost,” according to the YouTuber. However, the same can’t be said for Launch Pads. 

On top of that, players have also found a way to hide underneath the pickup truck. By driving up a hill, quickly jumping out and letting the car run you over, you can actually hide under the car and shoot out. 


As Chapter 2, Season 3 rolls on and Epic builds towards Season 4, the cars will likely receive changes through the different patches. 

This might render some of these currently secret tips a bit useless, but, it should also add some new things for players to learn. We’ll just have to watch what comes down the line.

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)

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.
