Fortnite Season 7’s Week 8 Quests task players with planting wiretaps at three key locations, so here’s how to do it.

Every week, Epic Games release a batch of Legendary and Epic Quests to allow players to earn a ton of XP. By completing these every week, you’ll have no trouble earning Battle Stars and finishing the Season 7 Battle Pass.

With the arrival of the 17.21 update, we’re now in Week 8, and players are tasked with planting three wiretraps at key locations. Here’s how to plant the wiretraps, and all of the key locations that you can plant them.

There are clusters of wiretaps in five key locations on the Fortnite Season 7 map. Inside each of these POIs are three wiretaps, so with a bit of luck, you should only have to visit one of the locations.

The wiretaps will be marked by a transparent blue box. Simply approach it and press the interact button and the wiretap will be placed. Do this twice more, and you’ll get 30,000 XP.

You can find wiretaps in these locations:

Fortnite leakers think Eminem skin could be coming soon

Fortnite leakers think that an Eminem collaboration could be on the way after the rapper took over the in-game Icon radio station.

Fortnite is no stranger to collaboration with real-life superstars, and players think that legendary rapper Eminem could be the next familiar face to make their way to the island in Chapter 3.

Crossovers have become a major part of Fortnite’s ongoing success. In the past, we’ve seen the likes of Spider-Man and Naruto arrive in the game, while Chapter 3 Season 3 introduced Indiana Jones and the upcoming Dragon Ball Z collaboration.

Aside from TV shows and movies, Fortnite has also made its name by working with some of the biggest music artists on the planet. Both Ariana Grande and Marshmello have held concerts in-game, with their skins available through the Icon Series.

Now, Fortnite leakers think they may have discovered which global superstar could be dropping into the game next.

On August 13, well-known Fortnite leaker Hyper discovered that 15-time Grammy award-winning rapper Eminem is currently the only artist playing on the Icon radio station played when driving vehicles.

The station was first added to promote the Silk Sonic collab back in February 2022, and usually features songs from the likes of Harry Styles, Billie Eilish, Big Sean, and more.

However, for now, the radio has been taken over by Marshal Mathers himself, spinning the same 12 tracks on repeat:

  • Godzilla (ft. Juice WRLD)
  • Headlights (ft. Nate Russ)
  • Phenomenal
  • Higher
  • Not Afraid
  • Venom – Lighters (ft. Bruno Mars)
  • Fall
  • The Monster (ft. Rihanna)
  • Walk on Water (ft. Beyoncé)
  • Berzerk
  • Survival

Fans of the rapper will notice that all of the tracks featured also appear on Curtain Call 2, his latest greatest hits album that was released on August 5.

If Eminem is set to come to Fortnite as a skin, it’s highly likely that it will serve as a promotion for the compilation, in the same way that movie crossovers usually take place around the film’s release, such as Uncharted or Avengers Infinity War.

While there’s no official word that an Eminem skin is on the way, all signs are pointing towards Slim Shady making an appearance in Fortnite very soon. We’ll be sure to update this page with more details as and when they are announced.

Fortnite x Dragon Ball Z crossover event: Release date, skins, leaks & rumors

A Dragon Ball Z crossover is coming to Fortnite, and here’s everything we know about it, including the annouced release date.

Goku in Fortnite

Epic Games are bringing cosmetic items and outfits from the Dragon Ball Z series to Fortnite, and here’s everything we know about this crossover, including the release date and leaks.

Epic Games have brought a plethora of different crossovers to Fortnite, with popular fictional characters like Spider-Man and Indiana Jones becoming available as cosmetic skins for players to unlock.

The recent Naruto crossover added new anime skins to the battle royale title, and Epic Games now have plans to bring even more fan-favorite anime characters. We’ll go over everything we know about the Fortnite and Dragon Ball Z crossover.

Fortnite x Dragon Ball Z crossover release date

Epic have confirmed that the Fortnite and Dragon Ball Z crossover is set to release on Tuesday, August 16, just 3 days before the release of the Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero movie.

This makes sense as Epic Games have previously released cosmetic sets for Uncharted and Doctor Strange around the times their respective movies were released in theaters.

Well-known Fortnite leaker Shiina has also claimed that we could see a Dragon Ball Battle Bus similar to the one in the Naruto crossover.

Fortnite x Dragon Ball Z crossover leaked skins

Although we know that the Dragon Ball crossover is arriving on August 16, there is still no word yet on what new cosmetics will be on offer.

On July 18, HYPEX tweeted that the Fortnite x Dragon Ball Z collaboration will feature 4 different skins, claiming that Goku, Vegeta & Beerus are confirmed to arrive in the battle royale title.

The leaker then added that while the fourth skin is currently unknown, it will most likely be a female character like Bulma. Players might be able to unlock these outfits by completing tasks similar to the Nindo challenges in the Naruto Rivals event.

Leaked Fortnite x Dragon Ball Z Kamehameha Mythic

A few leaks also suggest that the Dragon Ball Z collaboration will bring a brand-new Kamehameha Mythic weapon to Fortnite. While it’s unclear how this will function, it will most likely let you fire power blasts at your enemies.

It’s worth keeping in mind that these are currently just leaks, and this information has not been confirmed by the developers themselves. We’ll keep checking for any official announcements on what will be included in the DBZ crossover in Fortnite.
