2018 was a huge year for Fortnite and its developer Epic Games, and a new report has revealed how much the game made in 2018.

Research analysis company SuperData released a new report on the gaming industry on Wednesday, January 16, and unsurprisingly, it showed that Fortnite had a massive year in terms of revenue.


The report states that Fortnite made an estimated $2.4 billion dollars throughout 2018, making it the top-grossing free-to-play game in the world.

Fortnite’s $2.4 billion revenue puts it above other free-to-play games like Pokémon Go and Arena of Valor, and even made more than League of Legends, which raked in $1.4 billion in comparison.


Much of the $2.4 billion came from players buying skins, with Epic Games constantly releasing new characters throughout the year, while also rotating popular skins back into the Item Shop to give players the opportunity to buy those they may have missed.

Battle Pass purchases were also a huge factor, with 34% of players in the US purchasing them throughout the year.

Skins are a major source of revenue in Fortnite.

Fortnite has also accrued a massive fanbase around the world thanks to its availability, with the game expanding to new platforms throughout 2018 like the Nintendo Switch and Android mobile devices.


With Season 7 in full swing and updates continuing to keep the game fresh, it seems like Fortnite’s dominance is set to continue into 2019.

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

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.
