Season 7 in Fortnite has brought with it a new tier 100 skin, a devilish looking character called the ‘Ice King’, and like previous tier 100 skins, you will be able to progress his look by completing a set of challenges.

World of Warcraft players may notice some similarities with the ‘Lich King’ and this new Ice King in Fortnite, not least because of the Ice King’s sword, which very much resembles Lich King’s ‘Frostmourne’ blade.

The Ice King wouldn’t be a king without his castle, which appears to be sitting atop the Iceberg which has crashed into the Fortnite map for Season 7.

After unlocking the Ice King, either by progressing the battle pass to tier 100, or by spending precious V-Bucks to expedite the process, players are then able to change his look.

Firstly, you will be able to change the Ice King’s color, which starts as an icy blue and progresses to red, then white, and finally gold.

To unlock these extra colors, you will need to outlive opponents. After outliving 1000 opponents, you will get the Red makeover, 7,500 opponents for white, and finally 25,000 for Gold.

The four Ice King styles.

As well as unlocking the new color styles for the skin, outliving opponents will also unlock exclusive cosmetic items for the Ice King.

After outliving 500 opponents, you will get an exclusive back bling. Then, after outliving 2,500 opponents you will get a new pickaxe harvesting tool, which looks like a fancy staff.

Finally, after outliving 15,000 opponents, you will unlock an exclusive emote. It’s unclear if this emote is only usable with the Ice King or not, but it looks like he will perform some kind of move with his sword/staff. Perhaps other characters would simply perform this emote with whatever pickaxe they have equipped.

Ice King is one of many progressive skins for Season 7 too, as the Zenith and Lynx skins, which come with the battle pass, also have new styles to unlock.

These Ice King challenges are in addition to the standard weekly challenges, which also make a return for Season 7 – the week 1 challenges went live on December 6.

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.

  • Search Chests at Catty Corner (7)

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.
