Week 4 of Season 7 is already here, which means a new set of weekly challenges have just gone live in Fortnite Battle Royale.

Week 4, as with previous weeks, provide players with three free challenges and four that are exclusive to owners of the Season 7 Battle Pass.

The official Week 4 challenges have now gone live in game, and vary slightly to those that were leaked previously. Here’s a look at the official challenges:

Week 4 challenges in Season 7.

While most of the challenges are straightforward, there are a few which will require some very specific map knowledge.

FREE PASS CHALLENGES

  • Use an X-4 Stormwing Plane in different matches (5)
  • Launch Fireworks (3)
  • Eliminate opponents at Expedition Outposts (HARD) (3)

BATTLE PASS CHALLENGES

  • Stage 1: Destroy Chairs (1)
    • Stage 2: Destroy Wooden Utility Poles  (1)
    • Final Stage: Destroy Wooden Palettes  (1)
  • Deal damage with a pickaxe to opponents (100)
  • Eliminate opponents at Happy Hamlet or Pleasant Park (HARD) (3)
  • Search…
    • Stage 1: Search the letter “O” west of Pleasant Park (1)
    • Stage 2: Search the letter “S” in Wailing Woods  (1)
    • Stage 3: Search the letter “M” in Dusty Divot (1)
    • Stage 4: Search the letter “N” under a frozen lake (1)
    • Final Stage: Visit the NOMS sign in Retail Row (1)

We will have full guides for each of these challenges in detail soon, plus an all-in-one cheat sheet that will provide a straight forward plan of how to tackle these tasks best.

There is also a fresh challenge for the 14 Days of Fortnite event, tasking you with dancing in front of nine different holiday trees – check out our full guide here.

Use an X-4 Stormwing Plane in different matches (5)

This challenge is self-explanatory, as all you need to do is a find a plane and fly it. Of course, this will take you a minimum of five matches to complete, as you must fly a plane in five unique matches.


Launch Fireworks (3)

Firework locations for Week 4 challenge

The first firework location is just north of Risky Reels (now the block) and there’s another closeby, just north east of Wailing Woods. Finally, you’ll find another in the very south western point of the map, directly south from the center of Paradise Palms. There’s another firework nearby too, directly south east of Paradise Palms.

If you get stuck on the west side of the map, you’re not completely out of luck, as there is one single, lonely firework just east of Pleasant Park.


Eliminate opponents at Expedition Outposts (HARD) (3)

You’ll simply need to head to these locations and take out enemies – considering lots of people will be trying to complete the challenge, you should have no problem finding people to aim for.

Expedition site locations.

Stage 1: Destroy Chairs

Now moving on to the battle pass challenges, you first need to destroy a chair, then a Wooden Utility Pole (stage 2), and finally a wooden palette for stage 3.


Deal damage with a pickaxe to opponents (100)

Nothing fancy about this one, just attack enemies with your pickaxe. We recommend trying to do this early in the game, rather than later when everyone will have plenty weapons.


Eliminate opponents at Happy Hamlet or Pleasant Park (HARD) (3)

Best way to get these type of challenge done is to land at these locations right away and hope you can snag better loot before your opponents. Both these locations are already quite busy, and will be more so because of this challenge.


Find the N O M S Letters

Check out of full guide for every location you will need to visit to collect the letters to make N O M S here.

  • Stage 1: Search the letter “O” west of Pleasant Park (1)
  • Stage 2: Search the letter “S” in Wailing Woods  (1)
  • Stage 3: Search the letter “M” in Dusty Divot (1)
  • Stage 4: Search the letter “N” under a frozen lake (1)
  • Final Stage: Visit the NOMS sign in Retail Row (1)

Fortnite leak reveals more classic vehicles returning soon

A fresh Fortnite leak has hinted at the return of some classic vehicles, including the controversial Baller hamster ball and even the ATK Golf Cart. 

Back in Fortnite Season 4, Epic Games gave fans of the battle royale a new way to get around the island – a shopping cart. From there, the vehicles in Fortnite have only gotten bigger and better. 

Though, they haven’t been without controversy. The Baller, X-4 Stormwing, and Brute Mech were the source of much anger in the Fortnite community because of how powerful they were – with all three prompting exploits where players could easily win games without much legwork. 

In Fortnite Chapter 2, a number of different cars have been introduced. They’re not as whacky or powerful as the old vehicles, and while they are helpful, some players do yearn for the Shopping Cart and Quadcrasher’s returns.

The controversial planes returned in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5.

Well, according to a handful of new leaks, players might be getting their wish after a few of the older vehicles were given a refresh in the v15.20 patch.

According to Fortnite leakers FNBRUnreleased and InTheShadeYT, the Baller, Hoverboard, and ATK Golf Cart were all updated in the recent patch.

“Ballers and Hoverboard have been also updated! We may see them making a return soon,” FNBRUnreleased posted, while noting that the textures for the ATK Golf Cart were also refreshed. However, there doesn’t seem to be much of a change from the way the ATK’s used to look. 

There’s nothing mentioned about when exactly the vehicles could return, but it does seem possible that they could appear in this season. We got the Stormwings back over the holiday period, after all. 

Until we see them in-game though, it is worth noting that nothing is confirmed. Epic might have plans to bring them back, but scrap them based on something else that happens – say, they’re not compatible with another item. So, let’s just wait and see.
