Fortnite leaks reveal new in-game look at Doomsday Device

Fortnite’s upcoming Doomsday event is the talk of the town right now, and more clues are popping up. Now, players have uncovered a first look at how the Doomsday Device may look in-game ⁠— if everything comes to fruition.

As the Chapter 2 storyline runs its course in Fortnite, things are starting to get heated up. Could the island as players know it be nearing its end? Well, it looks like it, if these Fortnite leaks surrounding the Doomsday Device are to be believed.


The new Doomsday Device, found by Reddit user ‘Jonathan287’, was uncovered in the Doom Room in the main menu of Fortnite. While there have been a few smaller Easter eggs uncovered in the new rooms, this could be the biggest one yet.

The device looks like a glass sphere, with antennas attached to the bottom. What the device could be attached to, or what’s possibly inside, remains a mystery.


It’s also not currently on the island players launch onto every game. For now, it has its home firmly in the main menu, although there are suspicions that it could be making its way into the Agency soon.

The Fortnite Doomsday Device was first leaked on March 31 as a major map update was shipped around the Agency. Hatches were popping up around the high-tech facility, although players weren’t able to open them.

Keycards have since been discovered that lead to these hatches to open them, however they are currently disabled. Such a Doomsday Device might be stored in these hatches, and given its name, it could wreak havoc on the island.


The device leaked back then is distinctly different to the one uncovered in Midas’ room. For one, the new one is clear, while the old device had outside patterns. There’s also no wiring anywhere. However, the shape and design are the same.

The rumors around what could happen surrounding Doomsday have been swirling for weeks now. It could be Fortnite’s next live event, as the Chapter 2 plot wears on, or it could be something players can access in every game.

However, like past events, no one really knows what’s going to happen until ⁠it actually happens. So, for now, sit tight, and hope the end of the world is nigh.

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

  • Discover Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House laboratory

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.
