Epic shut down the servers for Fortnite overnight, with some planned maintenance ahead of the Season 3 Week 7 challenges that are now live.

If you’re new to Fortnite — and you may be seeing as the recent mobile release saw an influx of new players — then Challenges will stand as a nice rewarding element of the broader Fortnite experience.

With every new week, a new set of challenges unlock, with each new challenge week stacking together until the end of the season. As an example, each of the prior six weeks leading into Week 7 of Season 3 are still available to play.

Importantly, only four of the seven available challenges can be completed each week, so make sure you pick the right ones that reward more suitably for your own individual play style.

Here are this week’s challenges.

With the launch of Fortnite Battle Royale on mobile, there is much effort behind the scenes to refine and improve the experience, and keep it on par with its console and PC counterparts. The latest patch appears to address this.

The latest update for Fortnite introduces the return of Sniper Shootout, while also primarily focusing on improvements for the mobile version of Battle Royale.

This update — Update 3.4 — also adds 4x MSAA antialiasing, making for a far crisper and smoother visual appearance on mobile devices.

Perhaps one of the most important additions is a message that clearly displays which devices the mobile version is actual compatible on, as this wasn’t quite clear during the pre-launch beta and leading into release.

Check out the full patch notes below.

Improvements And Changes

    • Added ‘Unsupported Device’ message at startup for certain devices. That message is:
      “We’re sorry. Fortnite requires a device with 2GB of memory to run. Fortnite works with: iPhone SE, 6S, 6S Plus, 7, 7 Plus, 8, 8 Plus, X; iPad Mini 4, Air 2, 2017, Pro.”
    • Added new game data download system, which will allow us to make much smaller updates in the future.
      • When you start up this new version of Fortnite, it will start downloading all the game data, which will be the full size (around 1.8GB).
    • Antialiasing (4x MSAA) is now enabled on all supported devices.
    • Whispers and Party Text Chat are now enabled on mobile.
  • Added a quick tutorial for ‘Tap to Swing’ which appears upon first startup.
  • Added a message informing players that jailbroken devices are not supported.
  • Auto-opening of doors is now based on input instead of your player’s current speed.
