If you’re trying to max out your Season 3 Battle Pass in Fortnite, we’ve got you covered with a rundown on the latest challenges now live in Week 7.

Each and every week a set of new challenges pop up in Epic’s Battle Royale title. While you can earn experience just from playing, these tasks will massively boost your gains. There’s no better way to level up your Battle Pass and unlock all the new cosmetics this season.

We’re seven weeks into Season 3 and if early intel remains accurate, there are just a few weeks to go. This means your window is closing to complete the current Battle Pass but thankfully new challenges are here for you.

If you complete all nine challenges this week, you’ll be well on your way to level 100. While some are a little more tedious than usual, they’re still well worth your time. Here’s a complete rundown on what you’ll need to do in Week 7.

Fortnite Season 3 has now passed the halfway point.

From wiping out enemy teams to finding new collectibles, the latest challenges might take you a bit longer than usual. You’ll have to travel across the entire map as per usual so expect to drop in at a few different locations. Below is a full list of every new task in Week 7.

  • Search 7 Chests at Retail Row
  • Gain 100 health or shields from SLURP at Slurpy Swamp
  • Collect Floating Rings at Weeping Woods
  • Find 3 balls of yarn at Catty Corner
  • Collect 300 Stone from Rapid’s Rest
  • Eliminate 5 Players
  • Eliminate 50 Players
  • Search 7Ammo Boxes at Pleasant Park
  • 3 Eliminations at Sweaty Sands

Perhaps the most time-consuming challenge will be to eliminate 50 players. It’d be best to leave this objective on the backburner and focus on everything else first. As you tackle the other tasks, kills will often fall right into your lap.

Collecting 300 Stone at Rapid’s Rest might take a few drops to get through as well. Players will be swarming this location all week trying to get the experience for themselves. When you’re feeling ready, drop into this location expecting an early fight.

You’ll need to be sharp this week to secure all 50 eliminations.

These objectives will all be live until Wednesday, August 5. So you’ve got plenty of time to chip away at them throughout the next week.


Ali-A reveals unreleased Fortnite skin haunting Weeping Woods

Popular Fortnite YouTuber Ali-A has shown that the previously leaked Madcap skin looks to be coming soon as a mobile glitch has revealed a strange character ‘haunting’ Weeping Woods. 

Across the different Fortnite seasons and updates, Epic Games have released a vast amount of cosmetics – with fans picking out their favorites and donning them in-game. 

Typically, these skins are leaked ahead of time as leakers are able to decrypt games files that are added to the mix with each new update and patch. Some of these skins never see the light of day, or are held back for quite a while, despite being leaked following a patch. 

One of the skins that falls into this category is the Madcap – a glowing, purple, Mushroom-themed skin. It was leaked quite a while back, and while it hasn’t been available just yet, it looks like it will be pretty soon.

Each new Fortnite update leaks a whole host of skins.

Popular YouTuber Ali-A pointed out that some Fortnite mobile players on Android had spotted the outline of a skin sitting around in Weeping Woods. 

The character that seems to be ‘haunting’ the POI, is stood under a tree with their arms crossed. However, it’s not colorful. Instead, it’s a blacked-out silhouette – almost as if it’s going to be added soon, but is showing up as a visual glitch in-game. 

Ali-A noted that the character is most definitely Madcap because of the shape of the head, and given that he’s hanging around Weeping Woods, there might be a challenge or quest line involved with unlocking the skin.

Even though the YouTuber’s speculation seems pretty spot on, there’s no telling if he’s right just yet because Epic Games hasn’t announced anything. 

It could very well be that, as Fortnitemares unfolds, the skin will finally be available through the item shop and there are also challenges in Weeping Woods to unlock skin styles. Though, we’ll just have to wait and see.
