While players are still getting used to the new items, they also have a brand-new batch of weekly challenges, which reward players with Battle Stars that are used to rank up their Battle Pass and unlock new items.

Fortnite Season 9, Week 7 challenges and how to complete them

Search seven chests at Junk Junction or Neo Tilted [Five Battle Stars]

The first challenge of Week 7 sees players forced to visit either Junk Junction or Neo Tilted, and open seven chests.

This challenge doesn’t need to be completed in one match, so even if you head to the location and only manage to find one unopened chest, you can head back another time and add more to your tally.

Neo Tilted is the easiest of the two locations to complete this challenge, as it has more chests than Junk Junction, although this comes at the price of being a busier area, so be prepared to get into fights early in the match.

Search seven ammo boxes in different named locations [Five Battle Stars]

Players will also need to keep an eye out for ammo boxes, as they need to open seven of them at named locations to earn the Battle Stars for this challenge.

Again, it doesn’t need to be completed in one match, or in the same area, so any time you’re in a location that is named on the map like Pleasant Park or Mega Mall, keep an eye out for the green ammunition crates.

Perform three suppressed weapon eliminations [10 Battle Stars]

This challenge will require a little more hard work, as players will need to find kills with weapons which have a silencer equipped to the front of them.

Currently, the only suppressed weapons in Fortnite are the Suppressed Pistol and the Suppressed Sniper Rifle, so you’ll need to find and use these weapons if you want to complete this challenge.

Players will need to find three kills with suppressed weapons.

Deal 200 damage to opponents while riding in a vehicle [10 Battle Stars]

Slightly more tricky, players must deal damage while riding in a vehicle, which means you may need a teammate to drive you around on a Quadcrasher to complete this challenge.

If you’re on your own, you can hop on a Drift Board, pull out your weapon, and fire at opponents.

Stage 1: Visit The Block and Loot Lake in a single match [One Battle Star]

The sole staged challenge in Week 7, Epic Games are asking players to visit two specific named locations in a single match in this challenge, with three different tasks designed to keep you moving around the map.

The good news is that while you must complete the stages in order, there is no specific order in which you must visit the locations in the singular stage, so in Stage 1, you can visit either of The Block or Loot Lake first with no worries of failing the challenge.

  • Stage 1/3: Visit The Block and Loot Lake in a single match – One Battle Star
  • Stage 2/3: Visit Fatal Fields and Neo Tilted in a single match – Two Battle Stars
  • Stage 3/3: Visit Snobby Shores and Mega Mall in a single match – Two Battle Stars
Epic GamesMega Mall is one of six locations included in this week’s staged challenge.

Search a chest, use a vending machine, and a campfire in a single match [10 Battle Stars]

While this may sound difficult, it will likely be fairly straightforward, as the game’s map is littered with both vending machines and campfires.

The easiest way to complete this challenge is to head to Paradise Palms, which is the location with the most vending machines located inside at four. The hills surrounding the city are also home to four campfires, so finding one shouldn’t take long.

Perform three eliminations from five meters or less [10 Battle Stars]

The final challenge will require you to get up close and personal with your opponents, as you must eliminate three of them within a range of five meters or less.

The easiest way to do this will be with a shotgun, as it often requires just a couple of shots to take down an enemy.

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)
  • Enter the Vault in Doom’s Domain
  • Destroy Cobwebs at The Authority (3)
  • Discover Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House laboratory
  • Drive a car from Sweaty Sands to Misty Meadows in less than 4 minutes without getting out
  • Deal damage after knocking an opponent back with Storm’s Whirlwind Blast (1,000)
  • Deal damage to opponents at Coral Castle (500)

Stark Industries will be swarmed by teams looking for the secret Lake House

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.
