It looks like the Travis Scott skin that was leaked months ago in Fortnite might finally be making an appearance, as an in-game teaser seems to confirm some kind of Travis Scott event or performance coming, as well as new leaks.

Back in February, data miners found a cosmetic set with Travis Scott’s name on it, but so far, it’s not been added to the game officially.

The Houston rapper and producer is known to be a fan of the game, having jumped into some matches with Drake and Ninja back in 2018, and now he may finally be getting his own event/performance, in addition to the skin.

On April 16, leakers revealed a new ‘Jerky’ event was in the game files, and apparently the playlist used for the Marshmello event was also named ‘Jerky’ in the files, meaning it could be something similar.

Now, teasers have been spotted in-game which all but confirm a Travis Scott performance is coming. The main one is the ending to his song ‘Highest in the Room’ can be heard playing quietly in certain areas of the map.

In addition to the music playing, players have also noticed new posters for the event dotted around the map. They don’t say much, but there is a music logo on them, hinting at a performance in-game.

Then leakers decrypted the audio and a texture file which will likely be used for the event. Around the outside of the purple area, it looks like fair rides such as rollercoasters and carousels.

This would fit in with the theme of Travis Scott’s last album, Astroworld, which was all set at a fairground. At his live shows, he even had a fully functioning rollercoaster.

This is the object that can be seen in the distance and where the song is playing, as can be seen in this image (via FortTory).

This distant object appears to be Astroworld approaching the island.

When is the Travis Scott event in Fortnite?

Unfortunately, we have no idea when the event will be yet. However, we can make some educated guesses. It’s unlikely to take place during the week, with Saturdays or Sundays much more common for in-game events like these.

If Epic chooses to do it the same way as the Marshmello performance, it will be a Saturday, so potentially April 25, one week from when the teaser was revealed in-game.

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.

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.
