A new leak has revealed that an ‘Infected’ game mode could soon be added to Fortnite for a limited time.

Epic Games is known for introducing a wide range of unique Limited-Time Modes (LTMs) to Fortnite and is regularly adding new playlists to keep the game fresh.


Following some newly leaked game files, it appears as if yet another LTM, titled ‘Arsenic,’ could be set to hit live servers soon.

The iconic “Infected” game mode has been in multiple titles such as Halo and Call of Duty.

The new LTM, which was likely inspired by the classic Halo and Call of Duty ‘Infection’ game modes, would introduce abilities that have never been seen in Fortnite before.


Fortnite data miner FortTory revealed that the new “Arsenic” playlist was added to the game files and featured abilities such as ‘Double Jump,’ ‘Growl,’ and more.

These infection modes have been recreated in many multiplayer titles in the past, where infected players with unlimited lives and unique abilities would have to try and hunt down any survivors, often using melee attacks to infect opposing players.

FortTory also revealed some quotes from the game files, confirming much of the speculation around the potential playlist.


Fortnite’s Save the World mode also features some infected characters so it is possible that these will become playable once the LTM is finally live.

However, due to Fortnite’s massive map, it is unclear just how matches of “Arsenic” will look and Epic may also need to cut down the 100 player lobbies to reduce the time it takes to finish a round.

While it was hinted that Epic was working on this Infected mode near the start of Season 2, the playlist now being added to the game files suggests that it could be introduced shortly.

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

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.
