Fortnite looks to be on track for another visit from the undead in the upcoming Ice Storm event as a new leak has emerged that contains audio files and images related to the Ice King’s zombie army.

Fortnite’s winter event started innocent enough as it covered a portion of the map in a blanket of snow, but more sinister events loom on the horizon as the Ice King’s attack on the landscape evolves.


Fortnite leak source FortTory has uncovered files in the game that contain eerily familiar sounds for spawns with an icy twist, and a leaked image from Reddit user igootin all but seals the impending zombie attack.

The Reddit image shows a ghastly humanoid figure with glowing veins across its body that pierces through its eyes and mouth like the fiends in the Fortnitemare event from October 2018.


Just like in that event, the sounds from the explosive zombie spawns have been reintroduced to the game, this time with a crackling frozen element to the effect.

The files themselves also indicate a ghoulish foe is on the horizon, as files repeatedly include the name Deimos that relates to the Greek diety of the same name that means ‘dread.’

Although an impending freeze attack is coming to the battle royale, FortTory isn’t sure if the zombies are coming to the king of the hill mode. However the polished nature of the leaked sights and sounds almost assuredly point to their inclusion.


More will be known as the event goes on, which might have to do something with the mysterious orb in Fortnite’s sky.

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 after knocking an opponent back with Storm’s Whirlwind Blast (1,000)
  • 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.
