The brand new Quadcrasher vehicle added to Fortnite in the latest update, v6.10, might surprise you, as it is more than just a land vehicle.

The official description for the Quadcrasher provided by Epic Games – “Propel yourself and a friend into battle with this new two-seater vehicle” – doesn’t give much away.

But, when they say ‘propel’, they mean it quite literally, as you can launch yourself (and a friend) high into the air with this insane looking vehicle.

With a large powerful thruster fitted to the rear end, the Quadcrusher can take off like a jet engine, and if you find yourself a small ramp or hill, you can get some serious airtime.

And just like the ATK (Golf Buggy), you will also get high scores depending on how impressive your jump was, measuring distance and flair.

Team Liquid’s Chap was one of the first Fortnite players to test out the new Quadcrusher, and used both it’s back thruster and front ram to soar out of Tomato Temple.

In fact, you don’t even really need a ramp to pull off a crazy jump with the Quadcrasher, as the thruster mechanic will simply launch you into the air no matter what, as Chap again found out.

This time he rolled off the edge of Dusty Divot, thrust mid fall, and was sent spinning back in the direction from whence he came.

Of course, the main purpose of the Quadcrusher is to actually crush, and it is pretty good at that too.

By simply ramming any wall or structure with this thing will tear it down, which will be useful for making escapes as well as taking down enemy builds.

It’s not clear just yet how often the Quadcrasher spawns, or every location to find it on the map, but if you see one you will most definitely want to give it a shot.

It is easily the most useful vehicle so far, providing some functional utility other than simply faster travel, unlike the Shopping Carts or ATK.

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.

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.
