Season 4’s rocket launch was a major event for Fortnite fans, and it looks like another similar event is on the way for the conclusion of season 5.

Data miners, despite Epic Games’ best efforts to discourage them, have been busy digging through the game files from the recent v5.30 update.

On top of the exhaustive list of leaks, new items and challenges, a new event has been discovered called ‘Cube’, and seems to feature a rocket as well, similar to Season 4.

Within an events folder, six files have been discovered, all with the word ‘Cube’ included, the leak comes courtesy of FNBRLeaks.

Files for the new ‘Cube’ event.

The very bottom file is called ‘Rocket_BigBang’ – which is a daunting name, and suggests something possibly related to season 4’s rocket launch is in the works.

At the time of writing however, this is the only information available on the Cube event, and it is wrapped in mystery, giving fans plenty speculate over as excitement for season 6 builds.

The other file names are equally as vague, but there is something to do with a lightning beam and a cube ‘slam’, so potentially a large object is set to land on the Fortnite map.

A video with all the sound files related to the Cube has also been posted to YouTube.

More leaks released earlier also indicated that the end of season 5 would be delayed, from what was initially set to be September 25, to now October 2.

In typical fashion, Epic Games are expected to have grand plans for the season’s ending, as they went all out with the transition from 4 to 5.

Their execution of these in-game events and mysteries has been flawless so far, and seriously contributes to the buzz around the game.

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.

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.
