One of the free challenges for Week 9 of Season 7 in Fortnite Battle Royale asks players to dance on a number of obscure objects in three stages. This guide will help you find find each location in record time.

The Season 7, Week 9 Fortnite challenges are due to go live on January 31 at 14:00 GMT (09:00 EST, 06:00 PST) but a number of leaks in the days running up to the release have given us a good idea of what to expect.

One of those leaked challenges states: ‘Stage 1: Dance on top of a sundial’ followed by ‘Stage 2: Dance on top of an oversized cup of coffee’ and ‘Stage 3: Dance on top of a giant metal dog head.’

While those clues might come across as obscure, they’re actually pretty simple if you’re one of the millions of people around the world that spend a few hours each week running around the Fortnite map.

To begin, you’ll need to find the sundial and use your emote wheel to perform a dance once you’re on top of it.

The sundial is actually located on top of the hill in the top right corner of the G9 coordinate on the map (on the edge of desert biome when snow isn’t covering the map). The entire top of the hill will count as the sundial. We’ve marked the exact location on the map below:

If you’re gliding in for Stage 1, keep an eye out for a ring of vehicles on top of a hill.

Once you’ve completed the first stage, you’ll need to locate the ‘oversized cup of coffee’ and repeat the previous process. The coffee cup is can be found to the North of Dusty Divot in the car park for the diner.

The exact location has been marked on the map for you. Remember you HAVE to complete the first stage before moving on to this one.

The coffee cup is easy to spot once you arrive at the Dusty Divot diner.

As soon as you’ve completed the first two stages, you’ll unlock the third and final part of the challenge: Dance on top of a giant metal dog head.

The dog’s head is, of course, referring to the giant crane at Junk Junction. As this stage specifies dancing on the head of the dog, make sure you perform your dance on that specific point. Here’s where you need to go:

Once you get to Junk Junction, look for yellow crane on the south fence.

As always, make sure you complete each match after playing through one of the stages. If you leave the game without being killed or picking up the win, your challenge progression could be lost.

Once you complete all of the Season 7, Week 9 challenges, you’ll unlock the Week 9 Snowfall challenge and loading screen. This week, you’ll be finding a hidden Battle Star using the clue from the Snowfall loading screen.


Fortnite Baba Yaga skin release date leaked

The release date of Fortnite’s Baba Yaga skin has been leaked ahead of time, and it’s not all that too far away.

With Halloween being just around the corner, Epic Games have activated their annual Fortnitemares celebrations. The yearly event has brought changes to the battle royale island, as well as the ability to play as a shadow while your teammate is still alive in a match. 

Though given its Halloween, and players want to dress in new skins, the devs have brought back some classic looks – including the Skull Trooper – while also releasing some brand new cosmetics like Party Trooper and the Bone Squad.

Yet, one of the spookiest skins, Baba Yaga, is still yet to hit the Item Shop. The skin takes its name and look from the classic eastern European folk tale about a terrifying-looking old woman.

Fortnitemares always brings some new skins to the battle royale.

The skin was leaked prior to the recent Fortnitemares update by a number of data miners, though, the wait has been on ever since, with players hoping to see it in the Item Shop.

Well, that wait isn’t going to last all that much longer, as leaker ShiinaBR posted that, according to their reliable source, it will be available as a part of the Item Shop rotation on Monday, October 26. 

In the leaks, the skin is labeled as being ‘Rare’ so, it should set you back around between 1200 and 1600 V Bucks. 

Obviously, while Shiina has posted tonnes of reliable information in the past, the final say, of course, goes to Epic Games and they could very well change their mind and put a different skin in the Item Shop.

That might seem like a bit of an extreme move, changing dates just because one has been leaked, but there are plenty of skins that have been leaked in the past that are still nowhere to be seen.
