Twitch streamer Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins and K-Pop group iKON brought fans together for their special ‘Ninja x iKON’ event, which showcased Fortnite’s new Detonation mode.

After a long day of qualifiers on March 16, players were able to score a chance to play against popular Fortnite streamer Ninja – alongside iKON, who even received a special skin and emote just for the event.

In fact, the event marked iKON’s very first appearance in the United States, who may have teased a possible upcoming tour across the country.

iKON claimed that they loved Fortnite due to the game’s emotes, and said that their dream squad would include Ninja and rapper Drake, who went live with the streamer in 2018.

The group went on to play Fortnite’s brand-new ‘Detonation: Attack vs Defend’ Creative island, and afterwards gave fans a special performance of their song ‘Love Scenario.’

While iKON’s performance was the highlight of the evening, a trailer for Fortnite’s new Detonation mode also marked a major win for the event, gifting users a new method of play for a limited time.

Detonation: Attack vs Defend tasks attackers with destroying two objectives on the map, while defenders must protect the objectives for a grueling 10 minute time limit.

While the Creative mode was produced specifically for Samsung’s Level Up event, players can cop iKON’s exclusive skin by purchasing Samsung Galaxy S10, S10+ and S10e Android devices.

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.
