The Fortnite Battle Royale challenges for Week 6 of Season 7 appear to have been leaked online almost a week ahead of time.

The official Week 5, Season 7 challenges went live on January 3, asking players to perform a variety of tasks ranging from suppressed weapon eliminations to dancing on water towers and ‘searching between a giant rock man, a crowned tomato and an encircled tree’.

However, the attention of many fans switched to what they can expect from the next week of quests following a leak on January 4 that seems to show all seven challenges.

The challenges were shared via spreadsheet by the well-known Fortnite data mining and leaking account known as @lucas7yoshi_ on Twitter, who credits @shpankus for the information:

Twitter @lucas7yoshi_It sounds like an ice puck mini game will feature in the Week 6 challenges.

If the information shown in the spreadsheet is correct, the Week 6, Season 7 Fortnite challenges should be as follows:

Free Challenges

  • Stage 1: Deal (200) damage with SMGs to opponents – 1 Battle Star
    • Stage 2: Deal (200) damage with Assault Rifles to opponents – 1 Battle Star
    • Final Stage: Deal (200) damage with Grenades, Clingers, or Stink Bombs to opponents – 1 Battle Star
  • Deal damage with (?) different weapons in a single match – 10 Battle Stars
  • Eliminate (3) opponents in Lucky Landing or Tiled Towers – 10 Battle Stars

Battle Pass Challenges

    • Stage 2: Visit Lucky Landing and Retail Row in a single match – 1 Battle Star
    • Final Stage: Visit Lazy Links and Shifty Shafts in a single match – 1 Battle Star

The Week 6, Season 7 challenges are expected to go live on Thursday, January 10 2019. As always, we will be posting guides and tips throughout the day to help you get through them all as quickly as possible.

“No game modifying was done for this,” claims @lucas7yoshi in a later Twitter post. Presumably the leaker is trying to avoid any punishment from Epic Games as the company continues to clamp down on data miners and leaks.


Fortnitemares 14.40 Update map changes: Witchshacks, Midas & more

Epic Games have rolled out their spooky Fortnitemares update in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 4 and there’s a load of map changes to talk about. Here, we look through everything that’s changed in patch v14.40. 

The game is always in line for a wild update every Halloween and the same has happened this year. The dark forces of the battle royale world have come back from the shadows, all to celebrate the return of Midas – who disappeared earlier in the season.

Now, with the huge update on October 21 comes a shakeup for the game’s ever-changing map.

So, let’s run through everything you need to know for the next time you jump from the Battle Bus.

Fortnite Halloween update map changes


Fortnite Witchshacks
Epic Games
These Witchshacks have some very useful items inside.

One of the first things players will notice is that a number of Witchshacks have been dotted around the island. These were found by leaker FortTory, soon after the patch rolled out.

You have to feel, just because of the nature of them and the fact brooms can be found inside, that these will soon become hotspots for players dropping in.

Midas return location

Epic Games
Also found by FortTory is this Midas location, which looks to be his return location.

This appears to be the place where Midas will rise once again, with candles lit in a circle and the throne sitting in the background.

Soon enough, we’ll get to see what happens here, but an interesting addition nonetheless.

The Ruins POI: Fortnitemares

The Ruins Fortnite
Epic Games
Here’s how it looks in-game.

The game’s middle point of interest has been given a spooky makeover, called The Ruins.

Surrounded by ghouls and who knows what, this could be one of the most dangerous places for members of the community moving forward.

Halloween decorations

Fortnite Halloween props
Epic Games
If entering haunted houses is your thing, Fortnite is definitely worth playing this Halloween.

Some players will have seen many of these prior to the update, but much of the settlements in Epic Games’ popular title are now filled with Halloween props on the inside and out.

Here, we can see huge spiders placed on buildings and webs, so get used to seeing that.

We’ll be updating this article with more map changes as we find them…

Fortnitemares trailer

Last, but not least, you can check out the official Fortnitemares trailer – showing off all of the new features.

It was posted to the Fortnite Twitter account on October 21, once the patch rolled out.

So, there you have it! A jam-packed update for players to sink their teeth into this October.

If you want to see more map changes that those stated in this article, you know what to do – jump into the action!
