Rapper and producer Travis Scott is set to receive his very own skin in Fortnite, following leaked game files which included his name, and now a leaker may have revealed a first glimpse at what the skin will look like in-game.

After rocketing to mainstream success with his 2018 album Astroworld, Scott was known to be a Fortnite fan, as he dropped into the battle royale island alongside Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins and fellow rapper Drake.

Fortnite has come a long way since that stream two years ago, with countless skins and cosmetics added to the game, including one for Ninja himself. Now it looks like Travis Scott might be next up.

The prospect of a Travis Scott skin was first leaked back in February, just after the Season 2 update went live.

Suddenly, a new Cosmetic Set with the rapper’s name appeared in the game files, but there were no assets to go with it, meaning we had no idea what the skin itself would look like.

But, on March 17, reliable Fortnite leaker HYPEX shared an image of what is potentially the Travis Scott skin in full.

However, HYPEX does say that he cannot 100% confirm that it is real, and is still trying to tie down the exact source.

Some fans joked that the skin looks a lot like CJ from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, while others questioned if it was real at all.

As with any leaks, it’s important to remember that they’re not always accurate, so we won’t know for sure what the Travis Scott skin looks like until it’s official.

And that’s if Epic Games makes it official at all, as they’ve been known to scrap ideas in the past if they don’t work. We’d expect though that there is some kind of collaboration with the rapper and the game, for them to even spend time on it at all.

It’s also interesting that Nike shoes are worn by the character, perhaps hinting at another crossover with the legendary brand after their successful Jordan collaboration back in May 2019.

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.

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.
