UPDATE: It appears this leak was in fact fake, and that the screenshot shown below was not in fact authentic.

Samsung Support said “The Smasung Galaxy Skin is exlusive for Note 9 and Tab s4 customers” and said that the previous information was a ‘misunderstanding’.

The exclusive ‘Galaxy skin’ may not be exclusive to Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and Tab S4 users for much longer, according to a new leak.

As part of the launch deal with Samsung for Fortnite on Android, developer Epic Games released an exclusive skin that was only available to users on the aforementioned devices.

It was done to encourage sales of the Galaxy Note 9 of course, Samsung’s most recent Android release, and fans without one of these phones were disappointed to discover they couldn’t get the new skin.

But it looks like the deal was only a timed exclusivity, and the skin may be coming to all devices across mobile, console and PC soon.

According to FNBRLeaks, a staff member at Samsung Support explained that after the promotion that is ongoing ends, the Galaxy skin will be available to all.

The screenshots of the conversation come courtesy of @muchocracker, but it is difficult to verify their authenticity, so it cannot be said with any certainty that the skin will be available to all.

The file for the skin was also discovered by data mining, but again this doesn’t confirm that it will be available for all players. It does however make it very likely, if this is in fact authentic.

There is no date given on when the promotion will end, however leaks prior to the Android Fortnite launch did suggest that Samsung would have some sort of exclusivity for 30 days.

The promotion started on August 9, with the release of Fortnite on Android, meaning hopefully the Galaxy skin will be available to all in early September.

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.

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.
