Fortnite Season 4, Week 6 has arrived, and as always there’s a brand-new set of challenges for players to sink their teeth into, with this week’s toughest asking players to deal damage to an enemy after using Black Panther’s Kinetic Shockwave.

The Marvel theme has run throughout Season 4, with Earth’s mightiest heroes and a few from planets far away all crash landing onto the island and making it their home, fortifying themselves for what will be an epic showdown with Galactus, who’s on his way and determined to alter the reality of Fortnite forever.


With superheroes like Thor, Wolverine, Dr Doom, and many more already making an appearance in the game, this week it’s the turn of Wakanda’s Black Panther, and you’ll need to get up close and personal with the King if you want to complete this Week 6 task.

Black Panther has his own POI in the south of the island.

Black Panther has already made an impression in Season 4, with his Panther’s Prowl monument appearing in the south of the island, complete with a giant statue of the creature, and some nice loot to set you on your way to a Victory Royale.


With the new challenges dropping on Thursday, October 1, it seems like Black Panther himself will be making an appearance on the map, with players required to use his mythical item to shockwave an enemy, then deal damage to them. Kinetic Shockwave will blast your opponent back, and leave them temporarily stunned, meaning you can quickly switch to another weapon and pick them off, fulfilling the task fairly easily.

Unfortunately, Black Panther hasn’t arrived in the game just yet, but he will set foot on the Fortnite island at some point today, so we’ll be sure to update this article with his location so you can head there, take him down, and grab his abilities.

As always, you’ll be moving around the island a lot this week if you want to complete the Season 4 Week 6 challenges, with chests needing to be opened at Weeping Woods, enemies eliminated at Misty Meadows, and Foraged Items consumed at Holly Hedges.


You’ll also be asked to put your fishing skills to the test by pulling out a Legendary Fish and consuming it, so make sure to grab any rods you see close to the water and give it a go.

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

  • Discover Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House laboratory

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.
