Fortnite’s 14 Days of Summer event is now into its second day, meaning there is a brand new challenge live and available for players who would like to earn themselves a reward.

Over the next two weeks, fans of the popular battle royale game can expect to see a brand new challenge every day, alongside new Limited Time Modes (LTMs) and the unvaulting of some of the game’s most powerful weapons.


The second challenge requires players to bounce the game’s giant beach balls in different matches, but if you’re struggling to find any, or don’t understand the challenge altogether, our useful guide should help you out.

Epic GamesPlayers will need to find a giant beach ball for this challenge.

Following the v9.30 update, a number of massive beach balls appeared across the Fortnite map, although developers Epic Games refrained from explaining what they were for at the time.


Now, with the release of the latest challenge, we finally understand their purpose, as they need to be bounced by players who want to complete this task.

If you’re struggling to find where the three giant beach balls are, we have created a handy map that should give you a decent idea to where they are. Once you get in the general vicinity, they’ll be hard to miss due to their size. Players must bounce a ball in five different matches to complete this challenge.

To bounce the ball, all players really have to do is run into it and send it flying. If you’re feeling a little more adventurous, you can use your harvesting tool to hit it and control its direction, or get underneath the massive inflatable and bounce it with your head.


Completing the challenge will reward players with a brand new loading screen, which sees some of the game’s most iconic skins lounging by some water in the summer versions of their attire.

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)

  • Discover Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House laboratory

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.
