The week 8 challenges for Fortnite’s Season 7 have been leaked, giving players a heads up on what to expect when the challenges go live on January 24.

As has become tradition, this week’s Fortnite challenges have been uncovered by data miners, following the latest game update, by digging through the game files.

The challenges for Week 7 went live on January 17, and if you still need to complete them you can check out our full week 7 challenge guide.

While in past weeks we’ve had to wait for challenges to be leaked, the week 8 challenges in fact leaked a full week before they’re set to go live.

The Season 7 Week 8 challenges.

Free Challenges

  • Build (?) structures – ? Battle Stars
  • Deal (?) damage while in the passenger seat of a vehicle – ? Battle Stars

As with any leak, there’s no guarantee that Epic Games will actually use these, as the developers have been known to change certain challenges before they become available in game.

If Epic Games choose to use these, players will be doing a lot of travelling around the island, as they’ll need to visit Shifty Shafts or Lonely Lodge to search for chests, and will also need to visit a number of different locations to complete the final Battle Pass challenge.

The challenges are expected to go live on January 24, and we’ll have a full guide with all the best tips and tricks to help you earn those Battle Stars.

Ali-A uncovers teasers for future Fortnite skins: Matrix, Witcher, Ant-Man & more

YouTuber and longtime Fortnite superfan Alastair ‘Ali-A’ Aiken has discovered big clues for more crossover skins that could be coming soon to the game.

Season 5 of Fortnite kicked off with a bang as The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda arrived on The Island. Since then, we’ve seen God of War’s Kratos, Halo’s Master Chief, The Walking Dead’s Daryl and Michonne, and even Predator get their own skins.

So who’s coming next? Well, Ali-A has some ideas based on a hint list that was sent to him by Fortnite creators Epic Games themselves, and it seems as though more epic movie crossovers are on their way.

What new skins are coming in Fortnite Season 5?

In a new video celebrating the arrival of Terminator, Ali-A also revisited a list of items that he’d been sent by Epic Games, with each item acting as a teaser for a ‘hunter’ that would be coming to the game at some point during Season 5.

It appears that many hints on the list have already been discovered: The cup is The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda; the sunglasses are Terminator; the face paint is Kratos; the mud mask is Predator; and the syrup is Mancake, for example.

As for the remaining items on the list, there are some very interesting theories about who they could relate to, and which iconic characters could be coming to The Island next.

Ali-A explains that the Ant-Farm item is most likely a hint at Ant-Man finally joining the game, as he was given his own point of interest during Season 4’s Marvel extravaganza but was never added as a character.

The red and blue jellybeans could be a hint towards characters from The Matrix. This will likely be either Neo or Trinity, as they’re both set to return in the upcoming sequel Matrix 4 that’s due out later in 2021.

Tokens also appear as an item on the list, and Ali-A believes this is a hint towards The Witcher protagonist Geralt, especially as the Netflix adaptation of the game features a song called Toss A Coin To Your Witcher.

A crossover with The Witcher could be coming to Fortnite.

A baseball bat could be a hint towards Scout from Team Fortress 2, or it could have pointed to The Walking Dead crossover that already happened. Similarly, space bananas could be a hint towards Samus Aran from Metroid, or it could have just been about Master Chief.

Elsewhere, the golden back scratcher is likely going to represent the long-rumored Female Midas skin, as it links up with the ‘Midas Touch’ myth. As for the hand wraps, even Ali-A is unsure what they could hint towards, but it could be a boxer of some sort.

We’ll have to wait and see whether any of these crossover skin predictions come true before Season 5 of Fortnite comes to an end on March 15, 2021.
