A fresh Fortnite leak has revealed when popular Renegade dance from TikTok will finally be available in the item store – and it isn’t all that long of a wait away. 

Epic Games have kept up with popular culture and ongoing trends in Fortnite through their item shop. They’ve done skin crossovers with Marvel’s Avenger, Netflix’ Stranger Things, and even Batman but the most popular have come through their emotes.

The most popular of these emotes are usually dances and with the most coming in the form of Flossing, the ‘backpack kid’ dance, and even The Carlton dance from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. 

As TikTok continues to grow in popularity, fans have wanted to see some popular dance routines make their way to Fortnite – and they’ll soon get their wish.

Emotes are the best way to celebrate eliminating an opponent in Fortnite.

Fortnite leaker HYPEX revealed that the popular Renegade dance had been added with the June 30 update. Since then, it hasn’t been available in the Item Shop or appeared in the section of the battle royale where you can find bundles.

However, on July 11, HYPEX revealed that the emote will finally be available for purchase from the Item Shop on Saturday, July 18th. 

Sadly, the leaker did not reveal just how much the emote will cost or what time around the globe it will go live. Though, with so much anticipation building for its release, Epic might just reveal official details themselves prior to the 18th.

Emotes often cost between 200-800 V-Bucks depending on their rarity and the June 30 leaks revealed that the Renegade dance would fall under the Epic rarity. That would price it at 500 V–Bucks, though, the developers could have tweaked things in the meantime. 

As excitement builds towards July 18, Fortnite fans will just have to keep an eye on any potential new information that leakers manage to get their hands on regarding the emote.

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)

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.
