The first Fortnite Season 7 teaser was released by Epic Games on December 3, confirming the date that it will begin and dropping a massive hint about the theme.

Speculation about what Season 7 will look like has been rife within the Fortnite community for a number of weeks, but the prevailing theory has been that ice or snow will be a major factor.


That theory appears to have been proven once and for all after the December 3 Twitter post that shows some form of icy river structure that also seems to form a face with a crown!

The caption that comes with the image simply says: “A bitter ice spreads… 3 days to Season 7.”


We’re guessing that the entire Fortnite map will be covered in ice and snow once Season 7 begins, but Epic Games always have a surprise up their sleeve so we’re not putting any money down just yet.

Some fans believed the release date for the new season fit in well with a special Epic Games announcement set to take place on Thursday, December 6, at the Game Awards, but Epic Games’ Nick Chester confirmed this is not the case.

Fortnite fans are already hard at work looking for clues in the first Season 7 teaser, but it seems likely that we’ll not be able to glean much more until the second is released, presumably on December 4.


With Christmas just around the corner, some players were expecting a light-hearted festive season, but the image looks significantly more ominous than that.

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.
