Epic Games have already started teasing their next Fortnite crossover event with Birds of Prey and Harley Quinn, but when will it happen in-game? Here’s what we know so far. 

One major aspect of Fortnite that has helped solidify its place as one of, if not the, most popular games in the world has been Epic Games’ ability to place real-world events and pop-culture into the battle royale.


When the holiday season is upon us, players have found gifts and snow across the map. There have also been crossovers with hits like Marvel’s Avengers, Netflix’s Stranger Things, and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Yet, Epic isn’t stopping anytime soon. The newest crossover with Birds of Prey and Harley Quinn is seemingly already in the works ahead of the movie’s release.

When is the Fortnite x Birds of Prey event? 

With the new Birds of Prey movie releasing worldwide on February 7, 2020, we can expect to see the crossover event in Fortnite happen sometime before or alongside that date.


As of now, the exact start date is unknown, but going off Epic’s similar crossover, there is some build-up. The Star Wars crossover kicked off six days before the movie was released and carried on for sometime after. Similarly, the Avengers are got underway one day before Endgame was released and lasted a few days later. 

Will there be a limited-time mode or challenges?

The last time that Epic did a crossover with DC Comics was to celebrate Batman Day back in September. With Season 10 then having new locations with every update, it was the perfect time to release a mini Gotham City onto the map.

However, it’s unknown if Birds of Prey will get a full-blown crossover event like previously. Batman, Star Wars, and Avengers all had challenges and themed in-game items, among other things. 


What other skins could there be?

Seeing as Harley Quinn was singled out by the teasing Fortnite tweet, it seems pretty likely that there will be a skin or cosmetics bundle for her at the very least.

There are plenty of other characters in Birds of Prey – such as Huntress and even Black Mask – but with Harley being the most recognizable, it at least makes sense to see her in-game. 

The start date of Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 2 has already been confirmed as February 20, meaning that players will still have time to experience whatever comes from Fortnite x Birds of Prey for some time.

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
  • Deal damage after knocking an opponent back with Storm’s Whirlwind Blast (1,000)
  • Deal damage to opponents at Coral Castle (500)

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.
