Remember when everyone worked out that you could ride on top of the missiles from the Rocket Launcher in Fortnite? Well, now players are doing something even better.

If you weren’t already aware, you can ride the Stink Bomb too. Yes, you read that right, the throwable item can be jumped on in a very similar fashion, as Reddit user ‘kuzner’ proved with a recent video.

In that video, you can see a player named ‘Zolo II’ leaping onto one of the smelly grenades as his teammate throws it – something that we’re willing to bet 99.9% of people had no idea was possible.

To top things off, Zolo made the most of his Stink Bomb ride and managed to hit a sniper shot on the last remaining opponent in order to secure the Victory Royale!

There have been instances of players riding the Stink Bomb in the past, but this particular clip has caught the attention of the community and gone viral, meaning you’re likely to encounter far more players attempting it from now on.

The Stink Bomb ride might not compete with the Rocket Ride when it comes to the distance you can travel, but there’s something rather profound about tearing an opponent’s head off while riding along in a cloud of toxic gas.

The Stink Bomb was added to the game in June as part of the v4.4 Content Update and is usually used to gas players out of structures when they try to hide.

Now, though, they are sure to be used for completely different purposes!

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.
