While Fortnite Battle Royale fans are in store for all new icy locations, weapon skins and a fighter jet in Season 7, they will lose six of the game’s previously active items. 

The new Fortnite update 7.0 is now live and it’s looking very festive, with snow falling on different parts of the map and the introduction of new locations such as Frosty Flights, Happy Hamlet and Polar Peak. 


Players will be able to slip and slide in icy areas of the map, but they won’t be trapped by Chillers any longer. This previous common item has been removed by Epic Games, for this season at least.

The patch also includes some added optimizations for when players are building structures, however one thing that you won’t be able to build anymore in the Port-a-Fort as it’s also been vaulted by Epic Games.


The other four items which have been vaulted by Season 7 are Shadow Stones, Clinger, Shockwave Grenade and the Double Barrel Shotgun. 

A statement in the patch notes said: “Each new season gives us an opportunity to evaluate the current item rotation. 

“Our goal is to have a reasonable number of items to learn, while avoiding duplicates or overlapping functionality.”


Don’t be too downbeat because of the loss of these items, though, as a whole host of new features have been brought into the game – such as Wraps. 

You will be also able to zipline around Expedition Outposts and Iceberg, while shooting or using items at the same time. The same goes for Balloons too, which have been updated to allow aiming, shooting and the use of items. 

The minimap has been modified, new points of interest have been added with Season 7 Fortnite and, of course, let’s not forget about that Fortnite X-4 Stormwing fighter jet – giving players plenty of new content to explore in this new update.

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.
