This Fortnite heat map concept would help players choose where they want to drop

There’s always that one squad member who wants to drop at Tilted Towers, even though your team dies straight away every time you go there. However, with this Fortnite concept you would be able to show them why it’s a bad idea. 

The idea is simple. There would be a map introduced and available to all players which would show your recent form and relate that to a certain color band, depending on your performances when dropping there.


For example, if you had landed at Dusty Divot a lot in your last 100 games and were really successful there, it would be lit up in red on your heat map.

However, if you had landed at Loot Lake a lot also in your previous 100 games and got a very high amount of deaths there, it would show up in yellow or with no color. 


This would give players an indicator of where they usually do quite well  to assist their decision of where to drop, giving them the best possible chance of starting the game with a bang. 

Check out the concept idea below, which was posted by u/creatorsellor on Reddit’s very own r/FortNiteBR Subreddit. 

u/creatorsellorThis Fortnite heat map concept is growing in popularity on Reddit.

This feature idea has gone down well in the Fortnite community with 91% of /r/FortniteBR users liking it, and many players making it clear that they would like to see something like this added to the game in the near future. 


But where did the idea come from? Well, creatorsellor has an interesting story about that. 

“I got this idea sparked because my car tells me my average gas mileage according to the last 25, 50 or 450 miles actually”. 

Unfortunately, there are currently no official plans for the heat map to be added to the popular battle royale title by Epic Games, but the developers have added good ideas like this one to the game in the past.

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.
