Fortnite Season 8 has already given us a variety epic skins so far, but there’s nothing like getting your hands on some exclusive content – and some players can soon do just that. 

Samsung have announced that their newly revealed Samsung Galaxy S10, S10+ and S10e Android devices will bring a brand new Fortnite cosmetic bundle with it.

The arrival of the new iKONIK skin and Scenario emote, which were both leaked on February 28, are inspired by Jung Chanwoo from Korean pop band iKON and will be made available on March 8.

Redeem your exclusive skin

In order to get your hands on the new iKONIK outfit and emote, you’re going to have to follow a few first steps.

  • Head over to the Galaxy Apps store and find Fortnite on your Samsung Galaxy device. 
  • Click install and open the application once it has finished. 
  • Log in to Fortnite or create an account. 
  • Head over to the Store tab inside the app to claim your iKONIK cosmetic bundle.
  • Type in your billing information after you have redeemed the package. 
  • Return to Fortnite Battle Royale and the iKONIK set should appear in your inventory.

If you would like to take a closer look at the skin and emote, Samsung has posted a teaser trailer to their official YouTube channel – as seen below. 

Event details

Samsung will be hosting an event at New York City’s Meatpacking district on March 16 to celebrate the arrival of their new product line, their partnership with the K-Pop group and Fortnite – with popular streamer Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins set to appear. 

Ninja has already made a big announcement ahead of that event, though, teasing that their will be a brand new landscape on show.

“A brand new map, exclusive to Fortnite,” Ninja told his viewers. “That’s right, a brand new map, literally built for this event.”

This is the first time Epic Games will have explored the idea of creating a new map for Fortnite since the game was released in September, 2017. However, the likelihood is that the map will be a one-off for Samsung’s promotion. 

NinjaNinja has been the star of high profile events in the past.

Ninja will be hoping for a similar turnout to that of his New Year’s Eve Twitch event in Times Square, which turned out to be one of the most talked about broadcasts of 2018 – for both good and bad reasons.

Thousands of people stood outside in the rain that day and sensationally rejected his attempts to have them floss in the cold weather – during a stream that lasted from 4pm to 4am. 

Samsung and Ninja will be hoping that this event not only tops his last in terms of publicity, but perhaps they’re crossing their fingers for good weather too.

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)

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.
