It’s a new season in Fortnite Battle Royale, and that means there is a new set of challenges for you to complete and help rank up the battle pass tiers, unlocking all those sweet new cosmetics.
With so much new content added for Season 7, Epic Games can be a bit more creative with their challenges, putting players to the test with the new vehicles, map changes and more.
Just like previous seasons, the weekly challenges are split, with some available to all players and others only available to complete for battle pass owners – which, considering how much content is in the new battle pass, is probably the majority of players.
The challenges go live the same day as the new season and update v7.00 dropped, on December 6, with a total of seven tasks to complete (or only three if you’re not a battle pass owner).

In addition to the standard weekly challenges, there will also be progressive challenges for upgrading particular skins, such as the ‘Lynx’ skin shown in the Season 7 trailer.
The first weekly challenges for Season 7 are as follows:
- Pick up an item of each rarity (5)
- Dance in different forbidden locations (7)
- Play matches with at least one elimination (5)(HARD)
Battle Pass Challenges
- Stage 1: Dance on top of a crown of RV’s (1)
- Stage 2: Dance on top of a metal turtle
- Stage 3: Dance on top of a sub marine
- Deal Headshot Damage to opponents (500)
- Stage 1: Search Ammo Boxes in a single match (5)(HARD)
- Stage 2: Search Chests in a single match (3)
- Stage 3: Search Supply Drops in a single match (1)
- Eliminate opponents in different Named Locations (5)(HARD)
Pick up an item of each rarity (5)
This first challenge is pretty straight forward with nothing complicated to worry about. Simply drop in and try to do some extra looting. If you pick up a higher rarity weapon or item, consider briefly dropping it to pick up a lower rarity item, and then swap it again. This way you will get through the challenge faster.
Like the challenge suggests, there are seven forbidden locations in total. We first saw this challenge all the way back in Season 3, where sign’s showing no dancing allowed were dotted around the map. You will need to dance next to these signs when you spot them in game.
In total, there are seven locations to dance at, shown on the map below. You can see a full guide of how to complete this challenge here.
Play matches with at least one elimination (5)(HARD)
Another straight forward challenge here, simply get at least one elimination – remember though, you must play the match out until you either win or are eliminated yourself. If you leave the game early, this may not count towards challenge progress, even if you already have your elimination.
This is the only brand new challenge in the first set of weekly tasks, and it is a staged one. You will need to head over to just south of Paradise Palms for the RV’s.
Here’s the location for Stage 1:
Deal Headshot Damage to opponents (500)
Another familiar challenge here, but there are a few ways to do this a bit faster. Try to find higher damage weapons, like snipers and Assault Rifles. When you find an unsuspecting enemy, or come up behind them, take some extra time to line-up the headshot as the first shot, before they realize you’re on to them.
Stage 1: Search Ammo Boxes in a single match (5)(HARD)
Nothing too complex here, you can find ammo boxes in most buildings and houses. Try to avoid conflict too early in matches so you can search these boxes, since you will need five in a single match.
Stage 2: Search Chests in a single match (3)
Stage 3: Search Supply Drops in a single match (1)
Eliminate opponents in different Named Locations (5)(HARD)
The final challenge for week 1 is another tried and tested one. You don’t have to do this in a single match, but you may as well try to save yourself time. Head to quieter areas to search for a single elimination, then once you’ve got one move on to another. Aim for areas like Greasy Grove, where there are plenty other named locations in close vicinity, so you can quickly move around location to location.
