Another Fortnite collaboration with a popular video game title is officially on the way, with the popular battle royale title sent to link up with Nintendo title Splatoon in the near future.

Fortnite fans have become well accustomed to special events or cosmetics appear in the game to promote other things, with a collaboration with the new IT: Chapter Two movie currently underway with a spooky balloon appearing at Pleasant Park.


Now, one of Nintendo Switch’s most popular games is head for the island, with Splatoon set to splash paint all over Fortnite as it makes its way to the battle royale title.

NintendoSome of Splatoon’s characters are headed to Fortnite.

After searching through the game’s files following the v10.20 Content Update, data miner Lucas7yoshi discovered the names of a number of files which appear to be involved in some sort of Splatoon crossover.


The files are for new skins, naming some of the game’s characters such as Squid Kid, and another named Street Urchin, which is believed to be a codename for Spyke.

When these characters will be made available for purchase remains to be seen, but if Epic has started adding them to the game’s files, it seems likely that they will appear in the in-game store in the near future.

Whether the paint-shooting mechanics of Splatoon, which tasks players with covering the map in the color of their respective team, will come to Fortnite remains to be seen, but with Epic Games dedicating a whole section of the map to their Borderlands crossover, it certainly isn’t beyond the realms of possibility.


Neither Nintendo nor Epic have confirmed that a Splatoon collab is taking place, and with little information available regarding the possible event, there is no official date for which fans of the games can expect to see the mash-up take place.

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.
