The times are ever changing in Fortnite, as it seems that the Ice King’s snowy grasp on the island is now fading, making way for the next chapter in the game’s season.

Epic Games partially covered its battle royal in a blanket of snow on December 6 to bring in the holiday cheer of Season 7, and was briefly completely snow-laden on Christmas Day 2018.


Then the Ice King’s influence descended on the map on January 19, bringing forth a winter frost and the Ice Legion to the fray, but now it seems the game’s ending its frozen phase.

The snow is starting to give way to the changing season.

Parts of the map have already shown signs of life, as the snow is receding at a near constant rate.


So far the melting is occurring at the Northwest most point of the island near Wailing Woods. The change of scenery could also mean a change of narrative in the game’s unpredictable story.

After so many controversial changes and inclusions that the game saw since December 2018, going back to familiar grounds could be a blessing for many players.

The dreaded presence of the game’s Fog and Ice Legion PvE component has already taken its leave, relieving many players from the elements of the game they felt unnecessary.


Season 7 departed from the norm as it lasted 12 weeks as opposed to the typical 10 week life cycle. But if the snow melting is a harbinger of the anticipated Season 8 then it might be high time for a change of scenery too.

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.
