A Fortnite leaker has revealed what appears to be the new, upcoming loading screens for the battle royale title, and they have a very festive theme for the holiday season.

Fortnite often releases new loading screens to give players some visual content while they’re waiting for their match to start up, usually pertaining to some of the new content they’re releasing at the time or any important external events.


One of those important external events is the holiday season, with Christmas becoming a Fortnite event in its own right, and these new loading screens get right into the spirit of things.

Epic GamesEpic Games have got their holidays well under way, bringing players brand new skins and designs to show off in the battle royale arena.

Thanks to leaker HYPEX, we can see the three new loading screens coming to the game and they all have a certain air of Christmas cheer around them.


One of them depicts a Santa-hat-wearing Bulldog standing outside a Farmer’s Market as snow falls around him, while the other two look like an ornamental Christmas decoration and a group of sinister-looking nutcrackers.

These new festive loading screens will likely be joined by weapon wraps, character skins, emotes, and more in the coming weeks. It is unknown, however, when each of them will be available to unlock in-game.

Usually, they’re released on a weekly basis alongside the challenges, with a hidden clue included every time.

Fortnite is never afraid to release festive content, always embracing this time of year with loading screens, skins and even new areas of the map to explore in recent years.

You’ll see them do similar things around other major events, such as at Halloween or with the release of major Hollywood blockbusters – for example, Avengers: Endgame and the upcoming Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

Of course, these new loading screens are yet to be confirmed by Epic Games, but HYPEX has a notoriously good track record at getting these things right and their release seems more likely than not.

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)

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.
