The gifting system in Fortnite Battle Royale, which players have been waiting for since June 2018, looks to be in its final stages of development, with new gift wrapping options discovered.

First confirmed by an Epic Games’ developer on Reddit back in June, there hasn’t been any official word since on when the gifting system can be expected for full release.


However, as always data miners continue to dig through the game files to uncover various unreleased features and upcoming changes, and have been keeping track of the progress of gifting.

We got a first look at the system in full in October, showing the menu screen, the ability to gift to multiple friends and even gift to yourself (i.e. a parent gifting to their child’s account).


It was believed after this leak that the release of the gifting system was imminent, but Epic seems to be keen to perfect it before implementing it.

Now new game files have been discovered, showing that when gifts are made players will be able to choose four different gift wrap options; Purple, Red, Yellow or Blue, as well as adding personal message.

Unfortunately what the game files to do not tell us is when exactly this gifting feature can be expected to go live, and Epic Games still haven’t provided an update either.


It was previously expected to be released at the start of season 6, but with that season now nearing a close, perhaps season 7 will be the point Epic finally gives the gift of gifting to players.

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.
