Players knew that Fortnite’s Season 7 would bring more challenges and secrets to discover and it looks like one of those mysterious has just cropped up.

A new secret rift has been uncovered in one of the game’s more remote locations, giving players an enticing reason to spread out and explore the mysteriously, newly snow-covered portion of the map.


A video by YouTuber ‘CronicGamerZ’ shows how to get to the secret rift opening that’s been hidden away on a remote part of the playable map.

Epic GamesA lot more things to find have been cropping up since Fort Snow lit up.

Located southeast of Happy Hamlet, the island contains a few treasure chest spawns, a single derelict shack, trees to gather up mats, and not much else beside an unusually large snow mound.


However, hidden under the floorboards of the lonesome shack is a small pocket of space that holds a rift opening.

Upon entering the rift, the player comes out in freefall high above the little island giving them a chance to go back to the main body of land.

On the face, the island is a bad landing spot that will leave you deserted unless you use up all the wood there just to get back onto the larger map.


The rift opening could be another entry in a long list of Easter eggs or side-story lines that Epic Games occasionally incorporates to its battle royale.

As to why the developers left an open rift in a remote part of the island remains to be seen, but players will no doubt speculate and what this all means in the coming days and weeks.

Regardless more mysteries and challenges are sure to pop up throughout the new season that will keep players busy and entertained for months to come.

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.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 7 Challenges:

  • Search Chests at Catty Corner (7)
  • Eliminations at Craggy Cliffs (3)

  • Discover Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House laboratory

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.
