New vampire skins could be coming soon to Fortnite

New items found in the game files of Fortnite Battle Royale hint at vampire-themed cosmetic items coming to the game. 

With the recent release of the v6.10 update in Fortnite, as is usually the case after every update, data miners have scoured new game files to find and leak upcoming cosmetic items.


While most of the skins and other items they found have already been leaked, a new file suggests that at least one vampire skin could be added to the game soon. 

According to the files, the new skin would be a male vampire called ‘Sanctum’ and would come with a back-bling item called ‘Coven Cape.’


As of now, there are not yet any image files for these cosmetic items, only the text coding found in the game files.


If this skin is in fact to be added to Fortnite, it would not be the first vampire-themed skin in the game. Tier 71 of the current Season 6 battle pass offers a skin called ‘Dusk,’ a female character that is officially part of the Nite Coven set.

Presumably, Sanctum and its Coven Cape would also be a part of the same set and essentially be the male version of Dusk.


However, all of this information should be taken with a grain of salt, since this is just a leak and nothing has been officially announced or confirmed by Epic Games. 

Should any image files for the Sanctum and Coven Cape be leaked, we will update you and add them to this article.

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.
