The V6.22 Update for Fortnite Battle Royale has only just released, but dataminers are already hard at work sifting through the files looking for new items and clues as to what is to come in the game.

The new patch sees the introduction of a brand new weapon called the Heavy AR, alongside the return of  popular Limited Time Mode, Blitz. 

Patch V6.22 also brings in the start of Week 7 of the game’s popular Battle Pass, meaning the new challenges for the week are likely to be leaked in the near future.

Thankfully, due to the hard work of dataminers, we can already see what the Hunting Party loading screen for Week 7 will look like!

The Week 7 loading screen can be unlocked by completing all seven of the new challenges when they are released, and contains a secret hint to help players complete the seventh Hunting Party challenge.

Kevin the Cube is the main focus of the brand new loading screen, showing what appears to be his final moments, which took place during a special in-game event on Sunday, November 4.

The Week 7 loading screen features Kevin the Cube alongside the Calamity skin.

Also featured in the loading screen is a Cube Monster, with a massive group of Fortnite characters focusing their attention on the beast.

Dataminers have been extremely busy working their way through the new update, leaking brand new cosmetics and skins, along with a first look at the upcoming Hunting Party skin.


How to open chests in Upstate New York for Fortnite Week 10 challenges

The tenth week of Fortnite’s Season 4 has arrived, and with a new set of weekly challenges comes one task that asks players to open chests in Upstate New York. While this may sound confusing, here’s everything you need to make this challenge simple. 

Fortnitemares has officially arrived, with Midas reappearing for the first time since his Device experiment backfired badly, flooding the entire island at the end of Season Two. Midas has regained control of The Agency, and his army of Shadow Henchmen are ready to cause chaos.

Of course, the overarching Season 4 storyline is all about superheroes, with Marvel characters invading the island. The evil Galactus is on his way, and heroes like Tony Stark, Dr. Doom, and Wolverine have made Fortnite their home as they prepare for battle.

With these characters, new POIs and locations have appeared, and to complete this specific challenge you’ll need to head to Upstate New York. While this may sound like a strange request, it actually exists as a landmark inside the game. If you aren’t sure where to find it though, we’ve got everything you need to complete this task.

Where to find Upstate New York in Fortnite Season 4

When Stark Industries arrived in Fortnite Season 4, you may have noticed that the POI is located inside what appears to be a massive bubble, which covers a large portion of the north-east corner of the island. It’s easy to spot, as the area is marked on the map for you, and the trees inside it are lovely shades of yellow and orange, compared to the normal green trees elsewhere.

Fans of Marvel Cinematic Universe will know that Stark calls New York his home, with the Stark Industries tower planted in the middle of New York City. Even the Avengers base in later films is located in Upstate New York. It shouldn’t come as a huge surprise then that his location in Fortnite was originally planted in the state of New York, which has now been transported to the island.

Thankfully, once you know where Upstate New York is, it’s easy to complete this Week 10 challenge, as all you need to do is open seven chests inside this landmark. They don’t even have to be opened in the same match, so just pick them up as you see them and you’ll finish this task eventually. If you’re still not sure where to go, we’ve included an image below.

It may take a couple of visits to Upstate New York to finish off this task, as there will be plenty of other people attempting it too. While Stark Industries has the most chests, it may be easier to head to some of the smaller buildings located in the zone, as they will be quieter and make you less likely to face enemies.

It’s well worth completing this task if you’re ranking up your Season 4 Battle Pass, as this offers a massive 25,000 XP reward, which will help you unlock new skins and cosmetic items.
