Fortnite Season 2, Week 7 has arrived, and as always, fans of the popular battle royale game have a brand-new set of challenges to sink their teeth into as Skye’s Adventure tasks go live in the game on Thursday, April 2.

Epic Games kicked off Week 7 with the v12.30 update, which introduced Crash Pads and the Kingsman umbrella to help players avoid taking fall damage in the game, while the latter can also be used as a melee weapon to take down opponents in confined spaces.

Of course, a new week means a new set of challenges, and with Fortnite highlighting one of the new spy characters introduced in the Season 2 Battle Pass, Epic Games have made Skye the star of this week’s show as she becomes the fourth agent to get a special challenge set.

Players will need to search seven chests at one of the five new spy bases introduced in Season 2, and consume foraged items at Weeping Woods or The Orchard. On top of that, players need to visit The Shark, Rapid’s Rest, and Gorgeous Gorge for another task, and need to find three of Skye’s coastal campsites which are dotted around the edges of the map.

On top of that, players will need to collect 75 of each material within 60 seconds of landing in one of this week’s most difficult challenges, and deal damage with SMGs or Pistols. You can view the full list of challenges below.

Fortnite Season 2 Week 7 Skye’s Adventure Challenges

  • Search 7 Chests at Spy Bases
  • Deal 400 damage to players using SMGs or Pistols
  • Mark an Uncommon, Rare, and Epic item
  • Collect 75 of each material within 60 seconds after landing from the Battle Bus
  • Hide in a Creepin’ Cardboard at the Box Factory
  • Consume 10 Foraged Items at Weeping Woods or The Orchard
  • Visit The Shark, Rapid’s Rest, and Gorgeous Gorge
  • Escape a Vault using a Secret Passage
  • Visit 3 Skye’s coastal campsites – 3

Every completed challenge will offer 40,000 XP as a reward, which will go a long way to helping players complete their Season 2 Battle Pass, and unlock cosmetic rewards to kit out their Fortnite character as they jump out of the Battle Bus and into the action.

The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) is back for Chapter 2 Season 4, with a return to the beloved Trios format that fans have been clamoring to see make a return. With the action kicking off on October 9, here’s everything you need to know to make sure you catch all of the action.

FNCS is making its return to trios in Season 4 for the first time since the inaugural Season X event. While it’s been a pretty poorly kept secret, there are some changes to the format from when it last appeared in August 2019.

FNCS Season 4 format

FNCS Season 4 returns to the Trios format that has been used in the past, and is arguably the most popular competitive format in the tournament’s history, with past events filled with massive plays and huge battles that make for the ultimate Fortnite viewing experience.

As always, FNCS runs on a points-based scoring system, with your final placement in matches contributing to your overall score at the end of the weekend. Those who manage to win a game will receive 25 points as their reward, with the values decreasing incrementally down to 17th place, with anyone finishing below that scoring nothing. There are points for finding eliminations though, so players will be on the lookout for enemies to wipe out and add to their tally.
