Fortnite fans have been a treasure trove of creative concepts from covering music themes in intriguing ways to creating incredible mashups for skins, weapons and emotes.

A concept skin from Reddit user ‘RevolutionDoctor’ is no different and highlights a glaring omission from the list of collaborators that would fit right into the Fortnite landscape.


Nintendo has a backlog of characters ranging from silly to downright awesome and RevolutionDoctor’s mockup skin is a taste of easy buy-ins Epic Games and Nintendo can create.

The Reddit creative took the Oblivion skin and gave it a Samus Aran color-scheme with a few added changes to the base layer. The result is a seamless concept skin that would fit perfectly into the Fortnite landscape.

RevolutionDoctor / RedditFortnite and Metroid easily go together.

Even equipped with an arm cannon, the mockup incorporates a really great use of color to pay homage to the intergalactic bounty hunter.

With the release of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate looming on the horizon, it would make sense for Nintendo to use Fortnite as a lucrative marketing campaign as other big entities such as the NFL, Disney, and subsidiary Marvel have done in the past.

Further, console exclusive skins could even be on the menu to see this dream come true.

Rocket League TwitterNintendo has already worked with developers to make exclusive skins to a port.

Nintendo and Rocket League got Mario, Luigi and Samus’s gunship themed battle cars done when it made its transition to the Nintendo Switch, while Fortnite players on PlayStation have gotten multiple exclusive cosmetic items, as well.

While there are no hints from either company, RevolutionDoctor’s concept skin is going to have to hold us over until anything can come out of the idea.

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)
