Fortnite season 4 week 7 challenge guide: Destroying cobwebs at The Authority

One of Fortnite season 4 week 7’s easier challenges requires you to destroy three cobwebs at The Authority. The nice thing is that they’re all relatively close to one another, but if you’re having trouble, we’ve got you covered. In this guide, we’ll show you where to find cobwebs at The Authority and we’ll even include a handy video for you, showing us destroying all three back-to-back. Keep in mind, there are other cobwebs you can destroy at The Authority, but the ones we picked to take out are relatively simple to find.

Here’s how to destroy cobwebs at The Authority in Fortnite.

Cobweb locations in The Authority

The Authority is the large island in the middle of the map and you can easily spot it since it’s marked for you. Luckily, the cobwebs in this area are in the same spots each time, so you don’t have to worry about having to discover and look for them, yourself. We recommend starting by landing on the helipad on the eastern side of The Authority, as it leads to a convenient trio of cobwebs for you to destroy. Remember, if you get eliminated before taking out all three cobwebs, you can start a new match and your progress will save.

Though, from our experience, you can gather all three in less than a minute. Sometimes, you’ll come across other enemies looking to complete this challenge as well, so if that happens, do your best to grab a weapon to defend yourself. There’s a chest on the top floor of The Authority as soon as you enter from the helipad, so rush towards it as quickly as you can.

Here’s a video of us destroying all three.

And here’s a list of them along with their locations.

First cobweb

You’ll find the first cobweb on the top floor, as soon as you enter from the helipad. It’ll be in the top right corner of the room you enter, so either shoot it or craft a ramp to get up to it.

Second cobweb

The next one is found one floor below the previous cobweb. Simply go down the steps, open the door, and it’ll be in a corner just above you as you enter the room on the left side.

Third cobweb

The third and final cobweb is found one floor below the previous, in a more open area above a series of beams. It’s located on the south side and can be reached by jumping up on some boxes next to it — or shot if you manage to get your hands on a weapon. Once you’ve destroyed the final one, you’ll gain a quick and easy 25,000 XP.

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.

The best weapons in Fortnite during Chapter 3, Season 4
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.
