In a single emoji reply to a tweet, Epic Game’s creative director opened the possibility to a future Fortnite-branded soda.

The company has already made real-world counterparts to items and objects from Fortnite such as a life-size replica of the Battle Bus and Llama Pinatas in various real-world locations.

Stranger Things actor Finn Wolfhard tweeted his enthusiasm for the idea of a soda beverage named Slurp Juice, to which Worldwide Creative Director at Epic Games, Donald Muster replied with a lonesome ‘thinking face’ emoji.

It’s not much to go off of, but taking inspiration from in-game items and translating them into real life is something Epic Games is familiar with doing in the past.

The minds behind Fortnite offered a special greenish-blue brew for Twitchcon 2018, aptly named Slurp Juice. The drink was exclusive to a singular, small booth and only for Twitchcon-goers, but the idea could carry onto something more permanent.

As far as investment, it wouldn’t be too far from the realm of possibilities for Epic Games to hop on board. The company famously went ahead to pledge $100,000,000 into Fortnite prize pools for the 2018-2019 season.

Fortnite has seen astronomical success and has been widely recognized by prominent figures and groups outside of gaming.

With the international notoriety of the game and proven public interest in idea, a Slurp Juice soda might actually come to fruition.

The game’s marketing has already spilled over to other facets in life such as merchandise, Monopoly games, llama plushies, Nerf guns and more so adding a drink to an already tall order wouldn’t hurt.

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.
