The leaked aerial vehicle coming to Fortnite might not be a vehicle at all

It seems that audio files leaked from the V6.22 patch for Fortnite Battle Royale may not have been for an aerial vehicle as first thought.

The Legendary A.I.M. skin that is granted as a reward to Fortnite players who have completed seven week’s worth of Season 6 characters officially launched today, just ahead of the release of the Week 7 challenges.


Fans have found a parachute draped over a chimney at Flush Factory, that features the seem logo on it as the A.I.M. skin, with fans theorizing that the character used to the parachute to land on the Fortnite map.

The A.I.M. skin is unlocked when players complete seven weeks worth of challenges.

The parachute’s name in Fortnite files is ‘Robo_Chute’ which does seem to confirm the theory that the parachute was in fact used by the A.I.M. character.


While it’s currently unknown whether Epic Games just placed the parachute in that location or if an actual in-game event took place, some players did report hearing noises every thirty minutes, that sounded like a plane.

Thankfully, a player named vSuntzu14 on Twitter managed to capture audio of the noise, which sounds very similar to the leaked files from the V6.22 update.

It’s still worth noting that all of the audio files were found in a folder titled ‘vehicles’, so it’s possible that there could be a plane added to the game in the near future.


Unfortunately, Epic Games haven’t officially commented on the situation, so fans will have to be patient as they wait for new information to become available. We’ll be sure to keep you updated with any news as it’s released.

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)
  • Enter the Vault in Doom’s Domain
  • Destroy Cobwebs at The Authority (3)
  • Discover Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House laboratory
  • Drive a car from Sweaty Sands to Misty Meadows in less than 4 minutes without getting out

Stark Industries will be swarmed by teams looking for the secret Lake House

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.
