Data miners have revealed that a brand-new named location called Starry Suburbs is coming to Fortnite Battle Royale, after finding mentions of the point-of-interest in the game’s files.

One of the things that sets Fortnite apart from other battle royale titles is the fact that its map is constantly changing, providing players with new places to land at, search for loot, and eliminate enemies on a regular basis.


Players have already seen Gotham City make it’s arrival, replacing Tiltted Town and bringing in the Welcome to Gotham challenges, and data miners searching through the game’s v10.40 update files, which were accidentally released by Epic Games, have discovered another new location that is set to arrive very soon.

Epic GamesGotham City arrived in Fortnite to celebrate International Batman Day.

While searching for the game’s upcoming Overtime challenges, which offer players the chance to earn some final Battle Stars before Season 10 ends, data miner @Asriel_Dev discovered a task which asked players to find a “Visitor recording in Gotham City and Starry Suburbs,” a point-of-interest that has never been heard of before.


Where this location will appear remains to be seen, but it’s possible that we could see the north-western corner of the island get a major revamp, with a Rift Beacon appearing at Junk Junction which usually predates a massive change to the area.

At the time of writing, leakers haven’t been able to find any visual elements for the POI, but based on the name, we can expect it to feature a number of houses, and probably look similar to Pleasant Park or Salty Springs.

As it stands, there is no official release date for Starry Suburbs, with Epic Games yet to officially confirm that a map change is coming.


Data miners state that it will appear following the v10.40 update though, which is likely to release on Wednesday, September 25, meaning it shouldn’t be long before we see it. With Overtime challenges usually starting around Week 10, which will start on October 2, we will definitely see Starry Suburbs in the next two weeks.

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)

  • 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.
