Fortnite bug reveals unreleased Singularity skin variants

A strange bug in Fortnite Battle Royale has given one fan an in-game look at the yet-to-be-released Singularity skin.

As a reward for completing a number of challenges in-game, Epic Games usually hands out free cosmetics to those hard-working players.


Yet, not everyone has the time to sit down and find the daily Fortbytes or place in the Top 10 of 50 matches. That, however, is where bugs and glitches come into play – allowing some lucky fans the chance of getting the items without even breaking a sweat.

Fortnite fans are trying to find all the Fortbytes in order to gain more Singularity looks.

In a post to the FortniteBR subreddit, user DanS808 explained that their Utopia challenges had ‘bugged out’ and started autocompleting. 


“Epic accidentally removed my battle pass because I bought it abroad while on holiday and they thought it was fraudulent, the Redditor commented. “They re-added it and ever since the utopia challenges have been 1 week ahead.”

With all of the tasks complete, DanS808 was given the unreleased Singularity skin early. As with a number of skins, there are variants that can also be unlocked. For Singularity, players must uncover helmets dotted around the map – something the Redditor set about doing. 

As they’ve gotten their hands on the soon-to-be-released skin, the Fortnite fan was asked multiple questions about the Utopia Challenges in the hopes of giving others a helpful leg up.


However, the Redditor hasn’t been able to help, adding: “Strangely enough they (the challenges) are still showing as locked for me, due to not having 90 Fortbytes.”

Other members of the subreddit feared for the player’s account, even though the mistake came from the developers. “Why do I have the feeling someone will report you in-game for having a skin that you shouldn’t be having yet,” commented DazzledAura.

Members of Epic Games’ community team do regularly scour the subreddit and respond to threads about bugs and errors, but with the developers still on summer vacation, there has not been any word from them.


It remains to be seen if Epic reverts DanS808’ progress or send out some sort of quick fix to avoid more players getting their hands on the skin without completing the challenges.

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.
