One of the weekly challenges for Week 7 of Season 7 in Fortnite Battle Royale requires players to search through Chests at the Loot Lake or Frosty Flights locations. 

The challenge requires that seven Chests be opened and there is no specific requirement for how many need to be opened at each location. This means that players can either choose to split the Chests between the two locations or open them all at one.

While this challenge is very straightforward, it can be time consuming and will often require players to load into multiple matches in order to open the total number of Chests required.

In order to help speed up the process, we are providing maps that show where each Chests spawns at both Loot Lake and Frosty Flights. This will arm players with valuable info that they can use to know precisely where to land and where to go to at each location.

The first map here is of Leaky Lake, which has 26 total spawn points for Chests. This does not mean that all 26 Chests spawn in each match as these are merely the spots where Chests are known to spawn.

Here is the map for the Chest spawns at Frosty Flights, which has a grand total of 18 spots where Chests can be found. This is eight points less than Leaky Lake, so it might be more advisable to choose the other location over this one for the purposes of this challenge.

Keep in mind that when completing this challenge, players should always get eliminated, either by opponents or themselves, prior to leaving the match. 

Leaving straightaway without getting eliminated will result in the progress made in that match to not count. 


Searching through seven Chests is one of several challenges available this week. For more details on the full list of challenges, and a comprehensive guide on how to best complete each one, visit ourhub for the Fortnite Season 7 Week 7 challenges

Epic responds to concerns over leaked Fortnite player logins

Fortnite players have made big claims that Epic is leaking player logins through the battle royale’s in-game leaderboard. However, the developer has insisted the system is safe, and there’s been no evidence of hacked accounts through it.

Security scares are no joke, and while developers do their best to keep them underwraps, they can sometimes appear where you least expect them.

That’s what Fortnite pro Jonathan ‘Yung Calculator’ Weber was claiming after being mysteriously logged out of his account. The Built By Gamers player claimed Fortnite’s in-game leaderboards were leaking players’ private information, including email addresses.

People could then use these emails to either try and brute force hack accounts, or reset passwords and kick players out of the game.

“Guys, Epic Games’ infrastructure is so dogmeat that if you don’t have this turned off, people can find your email,” he said.

“That’s kind of bad on its own, but then if they have your email, they can send password resets to your account. That’s fine normally ⁠— on Twitter, it means nothing normally ⁠— but on Epic Games, it logs you out in-game.”

“This has happened to Clix, Nick Eh 30, Nate Hill ⁠— everyone. Epic Games has no idea what they’re doing. Their infrastructure is garbage. They need to change it ⁠— it’s disgraceful.”

However, people aren’t sold on Yung’s story. Fortnite dataminer ‘FNBRUnreleased’ has stated that it’s impossible. Epic’s API doesn’t allow for the sharing of information like Yung and others think.

“It is not possible to view the email of another person’s Epic [account]. Epic’s API does not work like that. I’ve been seeing this rumor from [Yung Calculator] spreading false information,” they claimed.

FNBRUnreleased’s standpoint has been backed up by Epic. The developer published a statement in response to Yung’s claims, saying leaderboards do not leak any players’ secure information.

“We investigated reports that leaderboards were divulging non-public information or causing unauthorized logouts. This is not the case.

“We are certain that affected accounts remain secure, player info (incl. email addresses) isn’t being divulged & any logout issue is resolved.”

For now, players should just always make sure their passwords are strong to best protect against any leak. Plus, turn on two-factor authentication if you can.
