The brand new and highly anticipated ‘Galaxy’ skin in Fortnite is only days away from being released.

The skin will be released along with the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 on August 24, and will only be available to those who pre-ordered the device between August 10-23.


Those who chose the 15,000 V-Bucks/Galaxy skin as their pre-order bundle will need to go through several steps to unlock their Fortnite content.

Samsung has sent out an official guide to all those who have purchased the device on how to gain access to the bundle.


Users will need to first register using the Shop Samsung app and by following these steps:

  1. Download and install the Shop Samsung app on your Samsung Galaxy Note9 device from the Google Play store and install the app.
  2. Open the Shop Samsung app, tap the “Menu Icon” on top left > select “My Inbox” > Turn Up Your Play offer.
  3. Tap SEE IF I’M ELIGIBLE to get started.
  4. Tap ALLOW when prompted to allow Shop Samsung to make and manage phone calls.
  5. Tap ALLOW when prompted to allow Shop Samsung to access your contacts.
  6. Tap REGISTER NOW for the Samsung Turn Up Your Play Offer.
  7. Tap OK when prompted to sign in to your Samsung Account to redeem the offer.
  8. Fill out the required information, and if prompted, upload receipt/proof of pre-order, which can include, but is not limited to, a pre-order confirmation email, receipt or packing slip by 11:59:59 PM ET on September 13, 2018.

Once that process is complete and the registration is approved, those who have received their Note 9 will need to complete the following steps to unlock their V-Bucks and exclusive skin.

Follow the steps below:

  1. After you are approved for the Game bundle or have purchased the $99 bundle, you’ll receive an approval email.
  2. From your Galaxy Note9 device, open your approval email or Shop Samsung app > “My Inbox” and click REDEEM MY GAME BUNDLE.
  3. Sign in to your Epic Games account or sign up for a new Epic Games account.
  4. Tap ALLOW to allow Shop Samsung to access your Epic Games account to award your V-bucks and Galaxy Skin.
  5. After you are successfully signed in, your 15,000 V-bucks and Galaxy Skin will be awarded to your account. Please allow up to 24 hours for your V-bucks to appear. You can redeem your V-bucks for in-game purchases or use them anywhere V-bucks are accepted.
  6. From the V-bucks confirmation page, click DOWNLOAD FORTNITE.
  7. This will open the Game Launcher on your Galaxy Note9 and take you directly to the Fortnite Installer.
  8. Click OPEN, to open the app and then click INSTALL AND OPEN.
    Note: This will install and open the game on your Galaxy Note9. Make sure you are signed in to your Samsung Account.
  9. After Fortnite is installed, agree to the terms to open and play the game from your Galaxy Note9.
    Note: The Fortnite Installer will be visible in your app tray after you install it.
  10. To redeem your Galaxy skin, make sure you are signed in to your Samsung Account on your Galaxy Note9 and open the game. Once you are in the game, go to the store lab.
  11. Your Galaxy skin will be available in your LOCKER within your ACCOUNT AND EQUIPMENT.

Although the Galaxy skin has not yet been released, popular Fortnite streamer Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins was given a Note 9 several days in advance, and offered the first ever look at Fortnite gameplay with the new skin live on his stream.

Considering how rare and in-demand this skin is likely going to be, players will probably look to exploit their device to make the skin available on other Epic Games accounts.

However, both Samsung and Ninja have made it clear that having the skin on any accounts other than the one used on the pre-ordered device will not be possible.


But for those who will not be pre-ordering the device, there is still hope of owning the Galaxy skin at some point. Information has recently leaked out that points to it eventually being made available for purchase to all players.

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)

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.
