Fortnite data miners have uncovered leaked Item Shop files which hint towards new cosmetics for Aquaman’s villain, Black Manta, coming to the battle royale title in Season 3.

Following Deadpool’s introduction as a character in Season 2, Epic Games shared that many of the changes planned for Fortnite’s third season would be themed around yet another superhero.

DC Comics star Aquaman was revealed to be next-in-line, and after being teased in the Season 3 trailer, he has been added at the perfect time, with Fortnite’s map still flooded after the end-of-season event.

The weekly challenges for players to unlock Aquaman’s skin and other cosmetics have already been made available, and it looks like other characters in his universe are also on their way to Fortnite.

Prominent Fortnite leaker Hypex claimed that Aquaman’s nemesis, Black Manta, would also be introduced in Season 3 after uncovering Item Shop leaks featuring his cosmetics.

Hypex explained that Black Manta’s dual blades are also expected to be released as a harvesting tool in Fortnite, allowing players to fully replicate the villain’s outfit in-game.

These new cosmetics are currently expected to be released on Thursday, June 16 at 8 AM PT / 11 AM ET / 4 PM BST/ 5 PM CEST along with Aquaman’s skin.

Black Manta is one of Aquaman’s biggest villains and is known for having a vendetta against the Atlantean hero, even designing a scientifically enhanced suit for underwater combat.

While it is unlikely that these same skills would translate to Fortnite, some players have suggested that Epic Games could incorporate the feud between the pair in the storyline for the new season.

It has also been leaked that Aquaman’s home Atlantis could added to the game as a point-of-interest during the third season, further fueling rumors that they may have something to do with future map changes.

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.
