Will Fortnite pros and streamers ever get exclusive skins?

Epic Games appear to have responded to calls for professional players should receive custom skins after qualifying for the Fortnite World Cup, and it might not be the answer fans were expecting. 

The game developers have introduced a number of customized cosmetics that appear to be inspired by Twitch streamers, such as Dr Disrespect, Ninja, and even Summit1g, but members of the game’s online community about whether or not pro players will get their hands on an exclusive skin of their own in the future. 


However, it seems that they aren’t quite ready to pull the trigger on making it a regular thing, if comments from Ghost Gaming’s Aydan Conrad is anything to go off. 

Dr Disrespect, TwitterDr Disrespect noticed that a Fortnite skin had a likeness to him back in April, 2019. So, he bought it.

The Fortnite professional claims to have asked the question directly to Epic Games, in the hopes that players in the future may be awarded with some bonus content as a reward for success in the competitive scene, but it appears as if the proposition wasn’t met with the warmest of responses. 


“I got a chance to talk to Epic in person before and I brought this up,” he tweeted on June 13, responding to another user who was curious about the situation. “They just don’t mess with Exclusive skins,” Aydan confirmed. 

Whether or not this is an accurate representation of their answer to the question is unknown, but the effort of producing custom cosmetics for each and every player that qualified for the Fortnite World Cup is perhaps a step too far for the developer. 

Special skins might be something that players and fans of pros were hoping for, but for now at least, it looks like a very slim chance that it will come to fruition any time soon. 


The best they can probably hope for is another skin to be released that may look like them.

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)

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.
