This infuriating Stormwing Plane bug is still plaguing Fortnite players

Fortnite’s X-4 Stormwing has had its issues since being added to the game in Season 7, but when will Epic Games fix its latest bug?

Players have been experiencing issues as they look to redeploy from the attack planes and the issue  may cost players many Victory Royales in the future – if nothing is done about it. 


The bug prevents players from jumping out of the Stormwings in a safe way, which would usually be to redeploy their glider and fall to the floor to continue the game. Instead, the bug is causing pilots to exit the plane and fall to their death. 

Epic GamesPlayers are experiencing even more issues with the X-4 Stormwing plane on Fortnite.

For all of their faults, the Stormwings can create some incredible dogfight moments on Fortnite and that’s exactly what a player was looking for in the clip below. 


Streamer SKLZ_Dyldude quickly tries to exit the attack plane to prevent taking damage from any shots and pull the glider to maneuver himself to safety. 

However, once he realizes that things aren’t quite going to plan because of a redeploy bug, it’s fair to say that the player loses his cool in this hilarious clip. 

This is not the only issue that Fortnite fans have highlighted of late, though, with many angry players bewildered about a change made to the Deadfire skin – potentially because of a bug. With it no longer changing color, some fans have been calling for a refund. 


“This should really be addressed by now” Mayo-over-miracle posted to Reddit. “I paid money for a product. And, suddenly the product is altered making it way worse. Bug or not, fix it or refund my money Epic.”

There has been no official word from Epic Games on either of these bugs so far. Will they be resolved in the next update?

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.
