Fortnite’s V7.20 Content Update officially went live on Tuesday, January 22, and brought with it a brand new item called the Sneaky Snowman.

First leaked on Sunday, January 20, the Sneaky Snowman works in a similar way to another of Fortnite’s items, the Bush.


While players were unsure of what to make of the new item when it was officially announced via the game’s news feed on Monday, many have called the Sneaky Snowman one of the funniest items added to the title yet.

Sneaky Snowman was added in the V7.20 Content Update.

This is because of the comical animations that appear when a player uses it, especially when they began to move around while wearing the item.


The Sneaky Snowman works much like the Bush in that it’s design is to help players disguise themselves around the map. The Sneaky Snowman can be placed over themselves to provide a clever disguise, but can also be thrown n down anywhere as a distraction, meaning Fortnite fans hiding inside one can blend in with the placed versions of the item.

Whenever a player who is wearing it decides to move, the Snowman itself is lifted up, and the players legs can be seen running underneath it, like something you would see in a cartoon.

The 7.20 Content Update for Fortnite also brought some sweeping changes to the game, as three items were placed into the Vault, including the fan-favorite Clinger, which is sure to rile up some of the community’s most recognizable faces.


The update is live now on Fortnite, so you can hop in and try out the new Sneaky Snowman!

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)

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.
