The giant sky crack in Fortnite has remained unchanged since it first appeared, but now it appears sand is falling out of it.

A rocket blasted through the sky and created the crack above the Fortnite map towards the end of Season 4, with people expecting it to play a significant role in the plans for Season 5.


Season 5 arrived with map changes, but the crack was still ominously in the sky above.

Reddit user killrmeemstr spotted a new development on July 13, sand was now pouring out of the crack.

Sand can mean any number of things to Fortnite, there are new beach ball emotes and lifeguard skins suggesting the sky sand could be beach related.

However, Season 5 is titled the “Worlds Collide” update and so far Vikings are the only new world of note occupying the Fortnite map.

A popular theory at the end of Season 4 involved Egyptian Pyramids, and the sand could be hinting at an ancient Egypt section colliding with the Vikings.


An old west themed wagon and a wooden anchor – which may have been hinting at the Vikings – were spotted at the end of Season 4.

The sand could be a part of the old west, or something new entirely. Stay tuned to Dexerto for any developments.

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.

  • Search Chests at Catty Corner (7)

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.
