One of Fortnite’s most popular Limited Time Modes has returned, with the V6.31 update for the game bringing back High Explosives.

This game mode removes all guns from the game, leaving only items that cause mass destruction with explosives, like Rocket Launchers, Grenade Launchers and Dynamite.


These powerful weapons can cause chaos on the map, especially if you’re not used to the gamemode, with rockets and grenades flying around as players try to secure the Victory Royale.

For those who would like to win more games and get more kills in High Explosives, YouTuber Geerzy has released a video with some helpful tricks and techniques that might help you in this frenzied mode.


Fortnite’s High Explosives game mode is filled with Rocket Launchers and Grenades.

As the game winds down and the circles get smaller, players will attempt to build 1×1 bases to protect themselves from enemies. A simple trick to counter these is to grab two Rocket Launchers, aim at one of their walls and fire.

Then, immediately switch to the second launcher and fire again. This means that the first rocket will destroy their cover, with the second dealing damage before they can react.

When under attack, Geerzy suggests simply crouching down and placing a pyramid while staring at the floor. The pyramid will give you cover from all angles, while taking very little time to build. This can be especially useful when someone is firing at you, but you’re not sure where from.


While these tricks are extremely useful in the High Explosives mode, they can be transferred to normal Fortnite matches as well, making them well worth picking up if you hope to secure some wins.

Fortnite’s High Explosives mode is only available for a limited time, as the developers tend to switch the modes out in an attempt to keep things fresh.

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

  • Discover Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House laboratory

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.
