The new season of Fortnite is upon us and with it came a bunch of data for miners to sift through which led to the uncovering of a new consumable item possibly on the way.

Fortnite has its legion of fans who like to dissect every crevice of data for any hints of upcoming skins, weapons, items and more, the method is great for letting fans know what Epic Games might be up to.


The discovery comes from Fortnite leaker ‘FortTory’ who found a file named ‘BigPoppy_Pop’ under the Consumables folder in the larger cache under Items.

So far there isn’t anything official released from the Fortnite developers to tie to the file, but fans are already speculating that this could be a future shield consumable that is a tier higher than the Shield Potion.


When a player “pops” a Shield Potion it gives them 50 shield points. The tier below that is called a Small Shield Potion that gives 25 shield points.

BigPoppie_Pop could be alluding to the next stage of the protective consumable that provides the player with a larger chunk of shield which would presumably be 75 to 100 shield points.

Epic GamesLate-game is all about keeping your blue bar full, another shield item would be helpful for a lot of players.

The files are rife with intriguing names from ‘CosmeticVariants’ to ‘Backpack_Pets_GingerbreadMan’ that hint to possible future releases, but time will tell what Epic Games decides to go through with.


What players do have in the meantime is everything in Season 7, including new items, modes, and areas of the map to explore.

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)

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.
