The mysterious purple cube has finally revealed its purpose, after initially spawning on the map out of nowhere, going to Loot Lake, destroying Loot Lake, flying across the map as a huge island, and now finally releasing Zombies.

Technically, they’re called ‘Cube Monsters’, and there are two types – Fiends and Brutes.


These Cube Monsters finally introduce an element of gameplay from the original ‘Save the World’ experience, but also have some real benefits and rewards specific to battle royale.

Killing these fiends and brutes will not only advance your progress in the Fortnitemares challenges (Destroy Cube Monsters, Deal damage with Assault Rifles or Pistols to Cube Monsters), but also give you a small amount of shield too.


You will find these Monsters at Cube fragments. Large Cube Fragments are found near corrupted areas, while Small Cube Fragments will spawn randomly around the map, so always be on the lookout.

In addition to shield, defeating Cube Monsters or destroying fragments all have a chance at dropping loot.

There is also a new weapon which will help you deal with these Cube Monsters even easier, called the Fiend Hunter Crossbow.

  • Available in Epic variant.
    • 40 base damage
    • 1.8 shots per second.
    • 4x damage against Fiends
  • Seven Arrow magazine size, unlimited ammo.
  • Can be found from floor loot, chests and Vending Machines.

The challenges for defeating these Cube Monsters will also give you some pretty cool rewards throughout the Fortnitemares limited time event, so they are worth seeking out.

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.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 7 Challenges:

  • Search Chests at Catty Corner (7)
  • Eliminations at Craggy Cliffs (3)
  • Enter the Vault in Doom’s Domain
  • Destroy Cobwebs at The Authority (3)
  • Discover Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House laboratory
  • Drive a car from Sweaty Sands to Misty Meadows in less than 4 minutes without getting out
  • Deal damage after knocking an opponent back with Storm’s Whirlwind Blast (1,000)
  • Deal damage to opponents at Coral Castle (500)

Stark Industries will be swarmed by teams looking for the secret Lake House

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.
