New Leak Claims an Upcoming Rift Event Will Take Fortnite’s Map Back in Time

A new leak appears to show what Fortnite’s mysterious rift will eventually end up looking like and even claims that it will take the map “back in time”.

Coming from a relatively unknown leaking account called @sky_veter on Twitter, the information is far from guaranteed but has already started to make waves within the Fortnite community.


The data miner has shared an image of the rift in it’s final form, which will apparently occur on August 27, along with a caption that the event will end with the entire map being transported back in time:

“Finish with this ! Boom the map it’s going back on time! This gonna be 27th August!”


Unfortunately, sky_veter does not go into any more detail about the event and, at the time of publishing this article, none of the more recognized accounts have been able to confirm the information.


The large rift in the sky was caused by “The Visitor” at the end of Season 4 and it has been gradually shrinking ever since.


Previous leaks predicted that it would disappear altogether but nothing has come to pass just yet.


With Fortnite’s V5.3 update being postponed until Thursday, August 23, it is entirely possible that Epic Games are cooking up something exciting for the coming days.

If sky_vetor’s information proved to be correct, though, players will still have to hold on until Monday before they get their answers.

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.
