The third day of the Ice Storm event in Fortnite Battle Royale is upon us and there are two more challenges available for players to complete.

The two challenges, which are the sixth and seventh of the Ice Storm event, require players to destroy 150 Ranged Ice Fiends and 20 Golden Ice Brutes.

These creatures, of course, belong to the Ice Legion, an army various different zombie-like creatures that spawn in on the map and try to inflict damage uopn players.

A strong weapon of choice for dealing with the Ice Legion creatures is the Fiend Hunter Crossbow, which has an infinite amount of ammo and has been added to the map specifically to help fight these monsters.


Another good option would be using a Mounted Turret that’s placed in front of where they spawn, or using Assault Rifles, Pistols, or Explosive Weapons, as causing damage with those will simultaneously gain progress in some of the other challenges.

As for where to find these creatures, the Ranged Ice Fiends generally spawn near the Ice Shards that can be found sticking out of the ground.

Make sure not to confuse these with the regular Ice Fiends, as the Ranged ones are taller, having glowing heads and torsos, and can launch deadly snowball attacks from afar. 


Dealing with Golden Ice Brutes can be a little more difficult and time consuming as they tend to spawn towards the later stages of the game, have a lot more health than other fiends, and can cause a lot of damage.

A good strategy from completing this challenge is to play conservatively until the middle phases of the game, then visit an Ice Shard to try and get a Brute to spawn in.

If it’s taking too long for a Brute to appear, it’s best to just leave to another Ice Shard to conserve time and try to get as many as possible before it becomes to difficult.
