Data miners searching through the files of the Fortnite v10.31 Update have found a number of new cosmetics, items, and map changes that signal the arrival of Batman and Gotham City to the popular battle royale title.

Batman Day takes place on Friday, September 21, and it seems that Epic Games and DC Comics have decided to celebrate the ‘Caped Crusader’ with a special in-game event, that sees some of the hero’s classic weapons appear in the game.

Tilted Town is also set for a major makeover according to the leaks, with images of a reimagined location appearing in the Fortnite files.

Epic GamesGotham City is coming to Fortnite.

The biggest change is coming to the popular location, which appeared during Season 10 as part of a new Rift Zone which stopped players from building or harvesting materials in the wild west-themed point-of-interest.

That’s all set to change though, with @Lucas7yoshi revealing that Gotham City, the fictional home of Batman and a host of his villainous enemies will be popping up there.

Tilted Town is out, in favor of Gotham City.

New weapons are also on the way, with a “Grapnel Gun” and “Explosive Batarang” both set to arrive in the popular battle royale game.

The Grapnel Gun will propel players towards their “target location,” which means this item is likely a reskinned Grappler, but with Batman utilizing this tool in movies like The Dark Knight, it’s no surprise that Epic wants to give you a similar opportunity to soar through Gotham.

An Explosive Batarang is also coming, with the item’s description stating that it “homes in on enemy players and sticks to walls,” and will explode if it “detects enemies in proximity.”

Cosmetic items are also included, with two new gliders and a Batman-themed spray, while Lucas7Yoshi also revealed that special Gotham-themed challenges are also coming, which is how fans of the superhero will get their hands on them.

On September 19, Tilted Town received its first piece of evidence about the eventual crossover with a Batarang appearing in a hay bale near the rift beacon.

Both the lobby screen and item shop will be receiving an overhaul for the crossover event, with the Bat Signal flashing over the backgrounds.

While Batman is the only character mentioned in these leaks, it’s very possible that we could see the Joker make an appearance over the next few weeks, to coincide with the release of the legendary villain’s movie on October 4.

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.

  • Search Chests at Catty Corner (7)

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.
