v11.10 patch update on October 29, Epic Games have added all sorts of new content to the game’s files and data miners have been hard at work trying to uncover as much as they can for fans to see. 

We already know that the Pumpkin Rocket Launcher, as has become tradition, will return to the battle royale game with Fortnitemares, although the arrival of a brand new weapon might well surprise some sections of the player base.

Fortnite leaker Lucas7yoshi has revealed that a brand new Harpoon Gun, which can be seen below, is coming soon to the game for the Halloween inspired Fortnitemares event. 

The event kicks off on October 29, the same day as the patch went live in-game, bringing a plethora of new content with it. So, let’s take a look at the latest addition to the game’s weapon list. 


The lack of patch notes during the course of Chapter 2, Season 1 has left players wondering just what has changed in the game every time a patch goes live, but leakers appear to be doing their job for them in the meantime. 

This wasn’t the only interesting leak to have been released since the patch was rolled out, though, as a list of new Fortnitemare challenges, coupled with fresh Halloween inspired skins and cosmetics, have also been revealed.

Fortnite’s new Harpoon Gun might have been introduced to help fans attack the Storm King, as it can latch onto structures and even deal damage. Its damage stats, at the time of writing, are unconfirmed.

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.
