A Fortnite player named Janthony has won the Blockbuster Competition, earning him 25,000 V-Bucks.

His victory also means that his movie, which was created using the Replay Tool built into the game, will be played in-game at the Risky Reels drive-in theatre, and the name of his movie written on the marquee found there.


The plot of the film, titled Prepare For Collision, features characters from Season 4 and shows a race against time as the villain of the piece Omega escapes prison, and launches a missile towards Tilted Towers. With things looking bleak, Carbon stops the missile just before it crashes into Tilted Towers, and then challenges Omega to a dance competition,and with a little help, sends Omega back to prison.


The Blockbuster contest asked players to direct their own short films, using the Replay Tool inside the game to capture the footage. 

Creators needed to tell a story based around the idea of superheroes, which was the theme for Season 4.

Epic Games announced the Blockbuster competition during Season 4, with the contest running from July 2 to July 11. The winner was scheduled to be announced on July 24, but due to a huge number of entries, this was pushed back.


While Janthony is taking home the grand prize, five finalists have also been selected and will each take home 10,000 V-Bucks for their efforts.

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

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.
