After about 10 hours, the iceberg on an island south of Happy Hamlet has finally broken! The reveal was a bit anticlimactic, however, as it simply revealed a bunker door identical to the one that’s been in Wailing Woods for quite some time.


The release of Fortnite’s V7.20 update has seen the massive iceberg in the corner of the map begin to melt.

The 7.20 update brought some massive changes to the game, including the new Scoped Revolver and the reintroduction of Glider Redeploy as an item.


One change that has slipped under the radar comes in the map’s south-west corner, where the large iceberg that floats of the side of the main island has started to thaw.

First noticed by Fortnite leaker lucas7yoshi, the large boulder of ice that sits on the island just below Happy Hamlet has started to melt, as players can see that it now has a health bar, which is slowly decreasing with every passing second.

Players cannot deal any damage to the iceberg to speed up the process, seemingly confirming that it will be part of an event, as the boulder will melt at the exact same time in every match, rather than at different points depending on whether players are destroying it.


The ice appears to be damaged every second, but with the boulder having around five billion health points, it will take some time before the object is completely melted.

Players have previously found a hidden bunker underneath the ice boulder, so it’s likely players will be able to get inside the structure once the iceberg melts.

Eagle-eyed Fortnite fans have also discovered a massive floating orb in the sky above Polar Peak, which turns players screen white with frost when players get too close it.


There has also been a number of leaks from the game files following the V7.20 update, including new skins and cosmetics, a mysterious music video, and even a new ‘medieval sword’ weapon.

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)

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.
