If you’ve seen the new Ark skin in Fortnite and have ever played Overwatch before, you could be forgiven for thinking that it looks an awful lot like Mercy!

Mercy is one of the Overwatch’s many heroes and has been seen in a number of skin types and outfits over the years, but a number of fans of the Blizzard title also saw a remarkable likeness between her and Fortnite’s ‘Ark’.

The Ark cosmetic set was made available in Fortnite for the first time on January 11 and features a female character with angel wings and a pickaxe called ‘virtue’ that could easily pass as a Caduceus Staff.

Epic GamesFortnite’s Ark skin has a lot of similarities with Mercy.

One fan of the two games, ‘mizuriofficial’ on Instagram, got the same vibes when he first laid eyes on Ark and decided to give the skin a full Mercy makeover using both her Angel and Devil skins. The result was pretty awesome!

“I haven’t done a Fortnite mashup edit in so so long,” explained the designer. “So when I saw this new skin released by them, I thought I’d bring it back. Fortnite’s ‘Ark’ skin really gave me Mercy (from Overwatch) vibes and so I decided to turn it into both her original and devil skin.”

If you couldn’t see the similarities between Ark and Mercy beforehand, seeing the Fortnite skin in the classic Overwatch outfits is sure to hammer the point home.

Ark has proven to be a popular skin in the Epic Games title, with players all around the world willing to shell out 2,000 V-Bucks in order to unlock it.

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.
