Fortnite’s strange, purple cube has been doing a lot of weird things lately, one of which was crushing major Fortnite streamer ‘CDNThe3rd’ during one of Ninja’s streams – and leaving him alive.

In a stream on August 28th, massive Fortnite streamer Ninja and a group of players surrounded the cube during one of its movements in an attempt to guess what direction it would roll toward. Fellow player and streamer CDNThe3rd, also known as Ceez, decided to go underneath the cube in a moment of bravery – resulting in what was supposed to be his inevitable demise.


Instead of bouncing leagues away from the cube, as players usually do when they try to attack the it, Ceez remained in place – without being squished.

The gathered players broke into laughter at his fate, but their humor quickly turned to awe that he was still alive.


“He’s still alive!

“No way!”

While CDN’s character was on all fours, he had survived, much to the shock and amusement of his team. Whether this was a glitch or not remains to be seen, as the cube possesses an arsenal of mysterious properties.

During one of Fortnite’s Summer Skirmish matches, Ninja witnessed the formation of the giant, purple cube. Since then, the cube has remained an object of mystery throughout the Fortnite playerbase, with many users trying to solve the puzzle of its existence.

It moves slowly throughout the map, making deep, groaning sounds. The cube also has strange markings carved into its sides, and will launch players a considerable distance should they try to attack it or jump on top of it. With the equally mysterious lightning now striking the map, players are gearing up for what could be a massive game event.

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)

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.
