Was Glider Redeploy really disabled in Fortnite with v6.30 update?

Following the v6.30 update, there has been some confusion among the Fortnite community as to the changes detailed on the controversial glider redeploy system.

On November 13, Epic Games announced that due to community feedback, glider redeploy would be disabled entirely from all default modes (Solos, Duos, Squads).


However, it would remain in ‘larger team modes’ (e.g. Soaring 50s, Disco Domination etc.), as well as Playground, to “allow ongoing experimentation with this feature”.

So, when the patch notes for v6.30 released and stated: “Glider Redeploy will now only activate the Glider. Skydiving will no longer be available when using Glider Redeploy” – players were somewhat confused.


This seemed to indicate that glider redpeploy hadn’t been disabled at all, but rather simply adjusted to no longer allow for Skydiving.

However, it appears that these adjustments are only being made for modes where glider redeploy is still active, such as playground and select LTM’s.

Players who were not a fan of the glider redeploy system can play the default modes safe in the knowledge that no one will be gliding off their high builds as soon as you get them weak anymore.


In Limited Time Modes and Playground, the glider redeploy system is still in place, and that’s where you’ll see the changes detailed in the patch notes implemented

Players will be able to redeploy their glider at any time when jumping from a certain height, but the speed gained by Skydiving will no longer be possible.

With the new Food Fight LTM added, it’s likely that this adjusted redeploy system will be active there too.

The grind never stops for Fortnite players, with Week 7 of Season 4 officially here bringing new challenges and tasks for fans to sink their teeth into. This week, one of the most difficult asks you to discover Tony Stark’s secret Lake House laboratory. Here’s everything you need to complete this challenge.

The Marvel theme continues in Season 4, as Earth’s mightiest heroes prepare for the inevitable attack from the evil Galactus. The supervillain is on his way to the Fortnite island, intent on altering the reality of the game forever, but our heroes are already preparing for the upcoming showdown.


These heroes have been taking over locations on the island for weeks, and while many are marked on the map to make them easy to find, some are hidden. One of these hidden areas is Tony Stark’s secret Lake House laboratory, which players need to find for this Season 4, Week 7 challenge.

Tony Stark has a named location in Season 4, but also has a secret laboratory too.

Where to find Stark’s secret Lake House lab

Seeing as it’s Stark’s secret laboratory, it shouldn’t come as any surprise that it isn’t marked on the map to make this challenge easier. What makes it harder is that there are a number of lakes on the island, so finding it accidentally suddenly becomes even more difficult. The good news is that we’ve done all the detective work for you, and can confirm that the lab is located in the north-east corner of the map, close to Steamy Stacks, and on the other side of the lake from Stark Industries.

Once you head around the lake, you need to find the Lake House, which sits just on the edge of the water, with some massive bushes around it. Don’t head inside thinking you’ll find the lab in there though, as what you’re looking for is actually outside instead.

Head to those large bushes that sit outside, and use your pickaxe to break them, which should uncover a special door that will take you into Iron Man’s secret workshop.

Once you make it inside, you’ll find that there isn’t too much to look at, although there are some weapons, consumables, and ammo sitting as floor loot that you can pick up and take with you as you hunt for Victory Royales.

Step-by-step guide to finding Tony Stark’s secret Lake House laboratory

  1. Head to the Stark Industries, and walk around the adjoining lake towards Steamy Stacks.
  2. Walk over to the lake house on the shore, and destroy the bushes beside it.
  3. Enter through the secret entrance to Tony Stark’s secret laboratory to complete the challenge.

Once you’re inside the lab, you should receive a notification in the top left of your screen confirming that you’ve completed the challenge, which means you can head back out and into the action.

It’s definitely worth taking on this task if you’re hoping to complete your Season 4 Battle Pass, as like the other Week 7 challenges, this offers a massive 25,000 XP boost to help you unlock new skins and cosmetic items.
