It’s possible that Fortnite Black Panther’s Kinetic Shockwave can be collected by shooting down Stark Industries Supply Drones at Fortnite Quinjet Patrol landing sites, as that is the route you can obtain other superhero powers, however this hasn’t been confirmed and even if true would rely heavily on luck. A much better bet is to play the Marvel Standoff LTM, then look out for the Black Panther’s Kinetic Armor drop once power ups begin spawning in the area. You can spot it either by the blue/green beam projecting up from its location, or by looking for the above Black Panther icon on your map.

Once you’ve found and picked up Black Panther’s Kinetic Armor, you’re ready to start using its power to work through the challenge at hand. Get close to an opponent then hit the appropriate button indicated at the bottom of the screen to trigger the Fortnite Black Panther’s Kinetic Shockwave power, which takes about three seconds before launching then a further seven seconds to recharge before you can use it again. Watch for an opponent getting knocked back by the blast, then target them with your primary attack to deal damage and work towards that 1,000 total.
