One of the more obscure challenges for Week 9 of Season 7 in Fortnite Battle Royale asks players to pop 10 Golden Balloons that can be found around the map.

The Week 9, Season 7 challenges went live at 14:00 GMT (09:00 EST, 06:00 PST) and they promise to have players scratching their heads with tasks ranging from time trials in the Stormwing to dancing on sundials!

Another challenge that’s likely to get you thinking is ‘pop 10 Golden Ballon’ – not because the instructions are difficult but because you have no idea where you’ll find them!

Luckily for you, we’ve be scouring the internet and running around the Fortnite map ever since we heard about this challenge and we’ve put together a map of every known Golden Balloon location so far:

The Golden Balloons can be found floating around all over the map.

While there’s a good chance that there are still more Golden Balloon locations that we’ve missed, the map should provide you with more than enough options to complete the challenge and pop 10 of the floating items.

To pop a balloon, you simply need to shoot it or hit it with something that will make it go bang! That simple.

Planning out a route in advance should also give you the opportunity to pop multiple balloons in one match, but there’s no time or match limit on this challenge, so you can take your time if you prefer.

Once you’ve completed all seven of the standard challenges for Week 9 of Season 7, you’ll unlock the Week 9 Snowfall challenge loading screen. Here’s how to find the secret Fortnite Battle Star for Week 9 of the Snowfall challenge.

Fortnite and Marvel have crossed paths time and time again, and it looks like their integration won’t be slowing down any time soon after Epic Games’ Creative Director Donald Mustard confirmed they have content planned for “many years.”

Fortnite is the gift that keeps on giving, even after all these years. New seasons and chapters keep it fresh by adding content and ditching other bits and pieces to mix things up.

Typically, each one introduces a new storyline complete with events, map changes, and themes. Naturally, that means players also get their hands on new skins, vehicles, weapons, and more.

Fortnite has had a series of incredible crossovers along the way too, including integrations with Batman, John Wick, Star Wars, and Stranger Things, to name a few. However, none have come close to the sheer level of epicness as Fortnite x Marvel.

Fortnite and Marvel have crossed paths many times before.

Marvel crashed its way into Fortnite back when Avengers: Infinity War released in cinemas. It happened again with Avengers: Endgame. Fortnite even found it’s way into the movie. And of course, it’s happening again right now.

It’s a mutually beneficial relationship, and one that fans of both franchises would love to see more of. Thankfully, their prayers have now been answered.

Fortnite X Marvel will happen for “many years”

Epic Games’ Creative Director Donald Mustard opened up about the crossovers between Fortnite and Marvel in the latest episode of the ‘This Week In Marvel’ podcast. He confirmed that the two worlds would collide for many years to come.

“This is just the start,” he said. “This is the start of lots of stuff we have planned for many years in this Marvel integration. Like, this is not the end. This is the beginning.”

You can listen to the full episode here. This quote and the discussion around it start at the 38:20 mark.

Donald Mustard may have said too much

Many thought the current crossover could be the last. But thankfully, Donald Mustard himself confirmed that isn’t the case, although he says he might have “dropped too many hints” in his time on the podcast.

If you listen to the whole episode, you’ll realize how passionate he is about Marvel. He’s been a long time fan for many years, and being able to integrate his favorite characters into Fortnite has been a dream come true.

What’s more, he’s proud of the fact that Fortnite has become a part of the Marvel universe as well. For example, the Fortnite x Marvel Nexus War is canon. It’s even been published as an official comic.

Either way, it doesn’t matter whether you recognize it as official or not. Fortnite x Marvel has been a smash hit, and it’s here to stay.
