Fortnite is teaming up with DJ Marshmello for an in-game event, where he will ‘perform’ at Pleasant Park, and in celebration, a new set of challenges have officially gone live. 

First discovered by data miners following the v7.30 update, the event, called ‘Festivus’, will see the DJ lead a party of some kind on February 2 at 2 pm EST.


Along with the event itself, a set of new emotes and items which tie in with the rave theme, players have some tasks to complete before the party gets started.

There are only three Showtime challenges in total for the Showtime event, with each challenge granting a reward ahead of the DJ’s performance at Pleasant Park on February 2. All three challenges have now been released, meaning you can get your hands on some sweet Marshmello-themed gear.


Marshmello Showtime Challenges

  • Challenge 1: For the first day of Showtime Challenges, players will need to find one of the Showtime posters that have been placed around the map to advertise Marshmello’s performance at Pleasant Park. Simply find one of these flyers, walk up to it and interact with it to complete the challenge, and earn yourself the Marshmello-themed spray.

  • Challenge 2: The second Showtime challenge requires players to visit the location of the Marshmello concert that will take place on Saturday, February 2. To complete this, simply head over to Pleasant Park, where the stage has been set up on the football field. Players need to complete this challenge before attempting the third and final task, as you need to have the ‘Keep It Mello’ emote you earn as a reward to complete the last challenge.

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.
