American TV series, Fortnite collaboration after data miners found leaked files hinting at the crossover.

Ever since the massive collaboration between Marvel Studios and Epic Games, which saw the introduction of Thanos and the Infinity Gauntlet to Fortnite for a limited time mode, fans have been calling for more and more Movie and TV show crossovers with the battle royale game.


The popular Netflix show, Stranger Things, is looking like it may be next to feature in the game, as files were found suggesting that new skins and objects related to TV series were found in the data files.

Epic GamesThe Fortnite x Marvel Thanos crossover was one of the first and most successful collaborations

According to data miner “Lucas7yoshi” it appears as if a full cosmetic Stranger Things set is planned to be released to players in a future update by Epic Games after recent leaks.


The tag name on the first set of cosmetic files about in-game objects was: “Cosmetics.Set.WeirdObjects,” the files found also contain a “Stranger Things” display name in the image within the data, indicating that the files for the collaboration have apparently already been added to Fortnite.

This is not the first leak detailing these weird objects for the Stranger Things collaboration as another data miner, “FortTory,” also revealed new sound files relating to the objects, titled such as “WeirdObject_Enter_1p_01..”

The files also hint towards the portal being a crucial part in the next event in-game, as they have added multiple new noises for the portal such as the portal expanding and being used.


The sound files play a similar noise to the portals which are currently in Wailing Woods, with many fans expecting that they will play a part in the upcoming collaboration, potentially allowing players to travel to the “Upside-Down,” which was a parallel universe seen within the Stranger Things series.

Despite all of the data files released, It is unknown just what this “weird object” will have in store for Fortnite fans but many are looking forward to see what Epic Games will pull off this time.

Many fans of Stranger Things were also anticipating the addition of a Demogorgon to Fortnite whether it would be introduced as a character or as part of the cosmetic set, however there’s no known plans to include them as of now.


It is worth noting that these files are were leaked by data miners and Epic Games may decide to alter or remove some of the content before making it public to the player base.

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

  • Deal damage to opponents at Coral Castle (500)

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.
