Fortnite Season 5 Battle Pass Theory – Villains, Hop Rocks, and Rockets

A Fortnite Battle Royale community member has come up with a theory about villains, Hop Rocks, and road maps… and it might even be correct!

Season 4 of the Battle Pass for Fortnite Battle Royale brought a new theme with it as superheros and villains were added to the game and meteors came crashing down to earth.


The largest meteor hit Dusty Depot, turning it into “Dusty Divot” and leaving a massive crater and thousands of “Hop Rocks” (consumable items that give you low gravity).

However, the Hop Rocks can often be found in the back of trucks dotted around the map and one Reddit user named Vercyx is convinced that all of those trucks are headed to one specific villain headquarters.


The poster states that all of the roads lead to, or past, the base on the mountain next to Snobby Shores (although this doesn’t mean much with the roads in Fortnite) and he’s convinced it’s because the villain in charge is stealing the Hop Rocks for a specific purpose.

He believes that the Hot Rocks will be used to power the rocket located in the base, and others have hypothesized that the rocket’s launch will mark the start of Season 5.

Of course, a lot of the information here is circumstantial. As previously noted, the way that the roads are laid out on the Fortnite Battle Royale map means that saying the trucks can only be going to one place is stretching things.


However, there certainly seems to be some merit to Vercyx’s theory and now all we want in life is to see a purple glowing rocket blasting off to infinity and beyond with Omega in the driving seat.

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)

Stark Industries will be swarmed by teams looking for the secret Lake House

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.
