Players have discovered an easy way to knock out all of the challenges for Fortnite’s new Search and Destroy limited-time mode, but you’ll need at least one friend to make it work.

To get players into the Valentine’s Day spirit, Fortnite kicked off the final event for Chapter 2 Season 1: Love and War on February 6.


Along with all of the new cosmetics, there’s a new CSGO-inspired LTM called “Search and Destroy”, where teams of six group up to either plant bombs or defend bombsites, just like Global Offensive.

Fortnite took some inspiration from CSGO for their latest LTM.

A good number of the challenges for the Love and War event can only be completed in Search and Destroy, like “Plant or defuse a bomb in Search and Destroy Matches” twice.


But, if you don’t want to try and complete your challenges while going up against players who are determined to try hard and show their CSGO skills good news: there is an easier way.

Modes for Search and Destroy mode are available to play in Fortnite’s Creative mode and you can even complete the challenges there as well.

At least one friend, preferably one who also needs to complete the challenges, is required for this trick to work, but it should make completing your Search and Destroy challenges much more efficient.

There are six challenges for Search and Destroy out of the 12 available for Love and War.

Playing against the AI can make it easier for players to complete challenges by eliminating enemies, planting or defusing objectives, or just surviving the round.

None of the six Search and Destroy-specific challenges are that difficult to begin with, so they shouldn’t take too much time at all in a Custom Match with a friend either.

The Love and Wars challenges are still unlocking, and all of them will finally be available on February 9. They’ll be around until with the event February 17, so players should have enough time to grind for all the cosmetics they want.

Love and War is looking like the last major event of Chapter 2: Season 1, with Epic announcing that Season 2 will be kicking off on February 20 after being recently delayed.

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)

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.
