Fortnite players are usually quick to call upon the Epic Games development team to fix bugs and glitches, but this new one might be so funny it could be worth keeping in the game. 

As seasoned veterans of the battle royale title will know by now, bugs can – at times – ruin the experience. Whether it be broken challenges, bugged weapons or items, the word “fun” isn’t usually used to describe them.


However, don’t act too quickly and paint this new problem with the same brush. It might be the craziest thing that’s been discovered in Season 2.

Players using the Fortnite Season 2 Battle Pass skins have seen some hilarious things happen to their characters.

There’s a wide selection of skins available in Fortnite, with some being purchasable and others available to unlock in challenge rewards.


Two of these outfits, however, have been seen to have some interesting issues. As seen in a clip from Reddit user iWumbo_23 below, when using two of this season’s Battle Pass skins, they glitch into an A shape.

While this problem has been seen before, wait until you see what happens next – heads literally roll off.

In what appears to be a visual problem in-game, the player can still move around, but opponents see them as either headless or nearly headless – depending on where they move to. Any sudden jolts can cause serious problems.


Now, you might be wondering whether or not this bug stops others from being able to headshot you while you’re running around. Although not confirmed, it’s highly unlikely that this is the case – but do feel free to try it. That certainly would be an exploit, at that point.

At the time of writing, the bug hasn’t been noted on Fortnite’s official Trello board as something to be fixed soon.

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.
