Fortnite season 4 week 7 challenge guide: Finding Tony Stark’s hidden laboratory

Yet another one of Fortnite’s season 4 week 7 challenges requires you to find a secret location — specifically Tony Stark’s hidden lake house laboratory. As with most challenges like these, their locations aren’t marked on your map, so it can be tricky to locate them without some help. Not to worry, though, as we’ve got the exact location of Tony Stark’s hidden lab, and we’ll show you how to find it in less than a minute.

Here’s where to find Tony Stark’s hidden lake house laboratory in Fortnite.

Where to find Tony Stark’s hidden lake house laboratory

Tony Stark’s hidden lake house laboratory is located in the Stark Industries section of the map, but thankfully, it’s not close to the main building where Iron Man is located. Instead, the lake house is found on the eastern side of this area right next to — you guessed it — a lake. Use the image above for reference. You can make a dash for this lake house as soon as the match starts — and even if other players are heading there, too, you can still easily gain credit for completing the challenge, since all you have to do is step foot in the lab. Even if you die right away, as long as you step inside the map, it’ll count.

Once you arrive, head inside the lake house and break the floor beneath you to reveal Tony Stark’s secret lab. From here, simply drop down and as soon as you land, and you’ll finish the challenge. Here’s a video of us getting to the lab to complete the challenge.

You’ll notice that you don’t need to do anything else to prepare for this challenge, aside from simply entering the lab. One thing you can do as well is to wait for someone else to discover it and head there later on in the match. This way, you won’t have to worry about getting taken out right away, as this area is busier than normal due to the challenge. You’ll be rewarded with some decent loot in the chests throughout this area, as well as 25,000 XP for your troubles, so there isn’t much reason to skip this challenge since it can be completed so quickly.

If you’re having trouble making it inside the lab before being taken out, have your entire squad escort you to the location and maybe wait a few days before trying again. You can also attempt this challenge in Team Rumble, which might work better for you, as you’ll be able to respawn if you die.

A list of all the Fortnite augments, and how to use them

Every new chapter of Fortnite is a massive event. While seasonal changes bring plenty of minor tweaks and additions, it's almost always when a new chapter rolls around that major overhauls or new mechanics are introduced. Fortnite Chapter 4 was no exception, and aside from the extreme changes the island underwent, it brought one very important change to gameplay that wmakes a huge difference when going for that illusive victory royal (it isn't easy to win Fortnite, after all).

Augments, well, augment the game. There are a few challenges that somewhat introduce what these are, but they leave out almost all the important details for you to find out on your own. Augments need to be considered, and deeply understood, not only for when you get them yourself but to know what new tricks your opponents could have up their sleeves. Before you get taken by surprise, here's a complete breakdown of how to unlock augments and how they work in Fortnite.
What are augments in Fortnite?
Augments, or Reality Augments, are essentially a new perk system introduced into Fortnite. There are currently 22 augments in the game, but with more to come in future updates. You can get access to multiple augments during a single match, but augments do not carry over after a match is finished, whether you win or lose. These perks can range from modifying certain weapon types to granting buffs for performing actions, and much more. There are no bad augments, so you will want to get as many as possible. Augments also have their own tab in your menu where you can see which ones you've had so far to track your progress using them all.

New characters from Fortnite Chapter 4, Season 2.

Surviving in Fortnite and securing a Victory Royale takes skill and luck. Getting better at Fortnite requires a knowledge of the playing field and a drive to outlast your opponents, but none of that matters if you aren't picking up the right weapons. Building a loadout that suits your playstyle and managing your inventory as the match progresses is key to snagging a win. You don't want to be caught in a long-range battle against someone on a mountaintop without a solid rifle on hand, and you certainly don't want to find yourself inside a close-quarters building without an SMG or shotgun.

Our guide to the best weapons in Fortnite breaks down rarity types and what they mean, the most effective arms in each weapon category, and tips for how to use them. Chapter 4, Season 2 brought a lengthy list of changes to the Fortnite arsenal -- including new weapons and the return of some fan favorites.

Characters on Ashika Island in Warzone 2.0.

Now that Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 Season 2 has been out for a little while, we've got a better sense of the game's weapon meta. There are some clear winners that carry over from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II, but there are other top-tier weapons that might surprise you in battle royale. Of course, the weapon meta constantly shifts as Activision updates the way firearms perform, so we'll make sure to keep this up to date with each new patch.

These are the best Warzone 2.0 weapons for Season 2, categorized by weapon type. Keep in mind, some categories will be skipped, as they don't have any viable -- let alone meta -- options at the moment.
