This GTA-style feature could be the perfect replacement for Fortnite’s planes

Epic Games’ attack plane experiment in Fortnite Season 7 has had some highs and a whole lot of lows, but by adding one new mode of transport they could be replaced quite easily. 

With so many complaints being made about the issues caused by X-4 Stormwing vehicles planes after they were first added to the game at the start of Season 7, they have been continually nerfed ever since with new fixes trying to solve problem after problem. 


But, one fan has proposed an idea that could potentially replace them and Fortnite’s glitchy ziplines in one fell swoop.

In a post to the Fortnite BR subreddit, NOJHD has proposed that a train system should be added to Fortnite to allow players to move around the map easily and quickly. 


These trains, which have had potential tracks mapped out below, would continually move around the map and would destroy anything in their path – which would be very similar to the rail system featured in Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto: V and other GTA titles before it. 

The map shows two stations situated in the snow biome, near popular destinations Happy Hamlet and Titled Towers, with the others near Wailing Woods and the race track in the desert biome.

The Reddit user would like to see trains which are easy to jump onto added to Battle Royale, with chests spawning in the caboose and believes this would completely change how players loot on the game. 


While discussing how the idea would benefit Fortnite players, NOJHD posted: “This would be a whole new thing for looting. Hop on the train, if it’s looted you just ride to the next station”. 

“Trains are very dangerous and this could teach kids that playing on the railroad tracks is very dangerous. Fun and educational!” another user wrote.

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.
