It looks like a gifting system will finally be implemented in Fortnite, as data miners discover the development of the system in the latter stages in game files.

Players have been asking for a gifting system in Fortnite for a while now, but Epic Games have remained completely silent on the prospect, making many think it would never happen.

With the plethora of cosmetic items like skins, emotes, gliders, pickaxes and back bling, the ability to gift these items to your friends who perhaps can’t afford them, or even for placing friendly wagers would be welcomed by the community.

The first hint towards the system was the new ‘behold’ emote added by Fortnite on October 12, which could be used to present these gifted items.

According to ForniteINTEL, data miners who have access to a “staging build” of the game, have found work-in-progress version of the gifting system.

Interestingly, it looks like you will be able to gift multiple recipients at once, but you can only gift the same player once every 10 days.

Once you have selected the item to gift, and selected the recipients (up to four), you can then ‘gift wrap’ the item by adding a personalized message.

You can even gift yourself, although it is unclear the purpose of this over simply purchasing an item. It also says items gifted to yourself cannot be returned, but does not mention anything about gifted items to other players being non-returnable.

The gifting to yourself option could potentially be used for parents gifting items to their childrens’ accounts.

As none of this is official yet, with still no word from Epic Games, it is unknown when the gift system is set to be released in game, but it certainly appears to be quite far along in the development process.

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.

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.
