Wolverine is now on the prowl in Fortnite but he can be difficult to defeat in a fight. So, here’s where you can find him as well as the best tactics to use against the Mutant. 

For the past few seasons, Fortnite players have been able to do battle with NPCs and get unbelievable loot as a reward. Previously, it had been characters that Epic Games had created like Midas but now, it’s all about Marvel. 


Players can fight iconic characters like Iron Man and Doctor Doom for the chance to wield their superpowers and also unlock loot via their specific vaults.

Aside from those two, however, you can also fight Wolverine – although he doesn’t have a vault that you can unlock. Instead, the X-Men character just has his abilities as a reward but he can be difficult to find.

If you want to do battle with the mutant, you aren’t going to find him at his own POI like Iron Man and Stark Industries. Instead, he’s found one of two normal POIs. 

Typically, you’ll be able to find Wolverine hanging out around Weeping Woods. He can be found in the forest itself or around the buildings where some players will drop early on for materials and loot.

However, he can also make the journey over to Slurp Factory. Why you might ask? Well, nobody is sure. But, randomly, he can be found there so be sure to fully search these areas before giving up on finding him.

As for defeating Wolverine, there aren’t many cheese strategies like there are to defeating both Iron Man and Doctor Doom – you aren’t going to be able to lock him in a corner. 

Instead, you’ll want a vehicle of some sort to use as cover. If you park a car or Choppa between yourself and Wolverine and then engage him, you can easily run circles around the vehicle while dealing damage.

You’ll also want a shotgun or assault rifle, as well as plenty of ammo – you aren’t going to take him down with a pistol. One you knock him down, make sure to complete the elimination or Wolverine will revive himself.


When you ultimately defeat Wolverine, you’ll be able to use his skin in your games moving forward – meaning you’ll stand out from the crowd and prove that you’ve beaten the Mutant. 

It’s not an easy task, and certainly isn’t one that every player will be able to complete, but it’s not completely impossible.

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)

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.
