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:

Free Challenges

  • 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.


Dance in different forbidden locations (7)

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.


Stage 1: Dance on top of a crown of RV’s (1)

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:

Epic Games /  niitq

Stage 2: Dance on Top of a Metal Turtle

Stage 3: Dance on top of a submarine

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.

The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) is back for Chapter 2 Season 4, with a return to the beloved Trios format that fans have been clamoring to see make a return. With the action kicking off on October 9, here’s everything you need to know to make sure you catch all of the action.

FNCS is making its return to trios in Season 4 for the first time since the inaugural Season X event. While it’s been a pretty poorly kept secret, there are some changes to the format from when it last appeared in August 2019.


With qualifiers now completed, we’re heading into the main stage of the FNCS Season 4 event, with a full month of competitive Fortnite on the way featuring some of the biggest names in the game competing for their cut of the prize money.

FNCS Season 4 format

FNCS Season 4 returns to the Trios format that has been used in the past, and is arguably the most popular competitive format in the tournament’s history, with past events filled with massive plays and huge battles that make for the ultimate Fortnite viewing experience.


As always, FNCS runs on a points-based scoring system, with your final placement in matches contributing to your overall score at the end of the weekend. Those who manage to win a game will receive 25 points as their reward, with the values decreasing incrementally down to 17th place, with anyone finishing below that scoring nothing. There are points for finding eliminations though, so players will be on the lookout for enemies to wipe out and add to their tally.

FNCS scoring system

  • Victory Royale: 25 Points
  • 2nd: 20 Points
  • 3rd: 16 Points
  • 4th: 14 Points
  • 5th: 13 Points
  • 6th: 12 Points
  • 7th: 11 Points
  • 8th: 10 Points
  • 9th: 9 Points
  • 10th: 8 Points
  • 11th: 7 Points
  • 12th: 6 Points
  • 13th: 5 Points
  • 14th 4 Points
  • 15th: 3 Points
  • 16th: 2 Points
  • 17th: 1 Point
  • Each Elimination: 1 Point

FNCS will be running in all the same regions it has been for the last few seasons: NA-West, NA-East, South American, EU, Middle East, Asia, and OCE, with the competition running on PC and consoles.


FNCS Season 4 will feature three weeks of qualifiers, with the top 15 teams from each week qualifying for the Grand Finals, who will be joined by the 87 teams with the highest cumulative points over the three qualifying rounds, with up to 132 teams competing in the Grand Finals on October 29.

FNCS stream

As always, Epic Games will be hosting their own broadcast for the FNCS Season 4 events, complete with commentary and analysis to make sure you catch all the action as it happens. You can check out the official Fortnite FNCS stream on their official Twitch channel, which has been embedded below.


FNCS Season 4 dates

FNCS Season 4 will run across four weeks ⁠— three weeks of qualifiers, and one week for finals. If you want to sign yourself up, these are the dates you need to know.

  • FNCS Week 1: October 9 – October 11
  • FNCS Week 2: October 16 – October 18
  • FNCS Week 3: October 23 – October 25
  • FNCS Finals: October 29 – November 1

The first day of each week will be an open qualifier. If you make the top 33 teams, you’ll be invited to play in the next two days for a chance to make it to the Finals.


FNCS isn’t the only competition coming to Fortnite Season 4. Weekly Cash Cups for Solos and Trios will be returning, while the Dreamhack Online Open (Solo) will also take place across NA and Europe.

With players set to earn up to $111,000 for winning the whole tournament, you can rest assured that there will be plenty of action when the action kicks off.
