Footage of Fortnite’s unreleased Spectator Mode has been leaked on Reddit, giving fans of the popular battle royale title their first look at the system ahead of its eventual release.

Spectator Mode has long been rumored to be on it’s way to Fortnite, but Epic Games have remained tight-lipped at the prospect of the feature appearing in the game in the near future.


While little was known about Spectator Mode, a Fortnite player on Reddit has been able to access parts of the system, giving fans a look at what they can expect when it finally goes live.

Fortnite fans may soon be able to watch their friends matches.

In a video uploaded to /r/FortniteLeaks by a user named VastBlast, the player can be seen accessing the menus associated with Spectator Mode.


The player can be seen accessing Spectator Mode in the bottom-right corner of the screen, which then offers the option to watch a friend’s session, or a specific game session if they have an ID associated with the match.

When selecting a friend’s session, players can then select from a list of their Epic Games friends who are in games, although the video doesn’t show VastBlast actually spectating any matches, as this functionality is unlikely to be active yet.

It’s unclear how VastBlast was able to access this feature, as some say they have seen a glitch with the client that has presented the Spectator Mode option in the past.


There is currently no official release date for Spectator Mode, but if Epic Games have added the functionality into the client, it’s likely that we will see it go live for all players in the near future.

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.
