A new leak suggests that weapon skins could be making their way to Fortnite Battle Royale in a future update.

Found first by popular Fortnite leaks account @FNBRLeaks, a folder named ‘Weapons Skins’ has been spotted in the V5.40 update files.


The leaked folder suggests that players may be able to select different skins and camos for their weapons in the future, giving Fortnite fans a new level of customisation.



Skins for weapons is a feature that has long been called for by Fortnite fans, and the possibility that this could become reality will surely be exciting to dedicated fans of the game.

There’s no information regarding how fans will be able to get their hands on the new weapons skins if they are released. While some skins may be available by unlocking them through the Battle Pass, it’s also likely that they will be available to purchase through the in-game Item Shop.

With the V5.40 update going live on Thursday, September 6, dataminers have already began searching for information on what might be coming to Fortnite in the near future. New character skins, harvesting tools and gliders have already been found, with more leaks likely to appear..


Fortnite’s V5.40 update features the new High Stakes event, along with the new Grappler item and the Getaway Limited Time Mode, and is live right now.

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

  • Discover Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House laboratory

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.
