Travis Scott’s first Astronomical concert in Fortnite just wrapped up as players from all over the world tuned in to see the rapper perform in-game. 

Fortnite has become known for some of the biggest events in the gaming industry. From major crossovers with the likes of Star Wars and Avengers, to in-game performances.

The latest event saw popular rapper Travis Scott takeover a stage on the Sweaty Sands island and perform a range of his classic hits. Similar to Marshmello’s concert, the map changed drastically throughout the show.

The first of five in-game concerts kicked off at 7 PM EDT for the Americas region and lasted for roughly 10 minutes.

Travis Scott arrived in style as the purple light in the sky finally came towards the map. An enormous asteroid full of rollercoasters, Ferris Wheels, and more. As ‘Sicko Mode’ kicked off the performance, a giant model of Travis Scott crashed into the map, launching players back from the island.

Visuals changed dramatically throughout the concert as the sky turned from bright purple to a hellish red, and even forced players underwater at one point.

The in-game concert can be seen from the 6:00 mark in the video below.

From Goosebumps to Highest in the Room, players were treated to crazy interactions as the rapper went through his setlist. It all came to an end with players flying through space and time, hovering over countless variations of Fortnite’s map as he debuted a new track in-game titled ‘The Scotts.’

Roughly 10 minutes into the show, all players were dropped back into the Chapter 2 battleground, however, some were noticing one key change. The terrain had tilted sideways. 

Perhaps a visual glitch or perhaps a tease for something coming down the line, there’s no telling just yet. Until the other concerts kick off in various regions, there’s no way to tell if every show will follow the exact same structure, or if the artist will change things up.

While there are still four in-game performances for players all over the world to check out, the Astronomical event also introduced a wide array of new content. From new skins to fresh challenges.

The Astro Jack skin in particular, has countless players predicting that a major storyline shakeup is on the way. One that could return Fortnite to its original map.

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.
