Fortnite’s highly anticipated seventh season finally went live on Thursday, December 6, and it came with a whole host of new map changes!

Fans of the game predicted that Season 7 would have some sort of snow and ice theme to celebrate the winter months, and the majority of leaks in the latter half of Season 6 seemed to prove those theories correct.

Add the fact that an iceberg was seen drifting ominously closer to the south coast of the map during the final weeks, and that snow eventually began to fall on Spawn Island, and the winter theme was all but confirmed.

Various teasers about a ‘frigid day’ dawning or a ‘bitter ice’ spreading only served to build upon the snow hype, but nobody knew exactly what to expect until the release of the Season 7 patch notes and trailer of December 6.

First and foremost, the Iceberg will features heavily as it will now be part of a new ‘biome’. Downtime for the v7.00 update hasn’t ended yet, but you can get a good idea of what to expect from the Iceberg in the Season 7 trailer below:

Below, you can find all of the map changes that we know of so far. We’ll be updating this article once downtime has ended and we’ve had a chance to look around for ourselves.

Iceberg 

The new Iceberg biome has now collided with the edge of the map, turning a large section of it into ice and snow and adding large amount more land. The overhead image of the Season 7 map shows that around a quarter of it has been affected!

Frosty Flights

Frosty Flights is a ‘New Location’. It is located on the western edge of the Iceberg biome.

Given the name, don’t be surprised to find one of the new X-4 Sormwing planes nearby! 

Polar Peak

Polar Peak is a castle that has also been described as a ‘new location’.

You can find it right in the middle of the snow biome on top of the biggest snowy mountain that we have found so far.

Happy Hamlet

Majestic G1

Yet another new location, Happy Hamlet can found on the southern edge of the Iceberg Biome.

Other changes

The patch notes also confirmed that ziplines, points of interest and various icy areas have also been added throughout the map. They’ve also adjusted the way that the storm closes in, making final circles at the edge of the map more likely:

    • Icy Surfaces can be found in snowy areas.
      • Players will slide on certain frozen surfaces.
    • Ziplines can be found around the Iceberg and near Expedition Outposts.
      • Latch on and zip from one end to the other.
      • Aim, fire, or use items all while conveniently traveling on Ziplines.
    • Minimap updated.
  • Increased the chance of final circles ending on the outer edges of the map.

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)

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.
