Fortnite Continues to Win the Battle Against PUBG on Mobile With Impressive Revenue Figures

Fortnite is continuing to win the battle with PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds when it comes to mobile revenue and playerbase.

12 months ago you would have been laughed at for saying that a new battle royale game would have a chance of dethroning PUBG at any point in the foreseeable future.


However, the meteoric rise in popularity for Fortnite Battle Royale after its release in September of 2017 soon saw it become the new king of the battle royale genre and it doesn’t look likely to relinquish that spot any time soon.

The two games are also competing with one another on mobile and a new report from Bloomberg, using the most recent data from SensorTower, suggests that Fortnite is still winning that battle, too.


The data in question includes all the major markets except for China, which is mostly closed off, and shows that Fortnite is beating PUBG in terms of money spent every single week, although the gap has lessened slightly of late.

With Season 5 of the Battle Pass due to begin in Fortnite on July 12th, it is likely that we will see another huge spike in spending around that time which will help it pull away from PUBG yet again.



Interestingly, more than 60% of the gross revenue that Fortnite on mobile has made so far comes from the United States, while PUBG’s comes from a wider range of sources with Japan and South Korea both contributing large amounts.

While PUBG shows no signs of conceding to Fortnite Battle Royale, it is also worth noting that Fortnite is still relying on revenue from iOS only.

When the game is eventually released on Android, it seems likely that it will race ahead even further.

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.
