We’re now into Week 9 of Fortnite’s Season 7, meaning there are a brand new set of challenges for players to sink their teeth into, including completing time trials in the X-4 Storming plane.

The new set of challenges went live on Thursday, January 31, with many feeling that this week’s are slightly easier than usual thanks to only one challenge requiring players to eliminate opponents.

For owners of the Fortnite Battle Pass, one of the challenges will test your skills as a pilot, as you’ll have to hop into one of the X-4 Stormwing planes and complete two time trials.

Fortnite fans will need to find one of these time trials to complete this challenge.

Players who want to take on the test of speed and skill will first need to find themselves an X-4 Stormwing, which can be found in a number of locations around the map, including Frosty Flights and beside Paradise Palms.

Then, you’ll need to soar into the sky and search for the time trial locations, with a number of different trials appearing across the island. This handy map will show you a number of them which can be used to complete the challenge.

Once you have found one of these time trial symbols, fly your plane through it which will signal the start of the trial, and then fly your X4 Stormwing through each marker before the time runs out.

Players who complete two time trials will be rewarded with 10 Battle Stars, but make sure you finish the match you complete a trial in until the end, as quitting before you do will cause you to lose your time.

Forntite’s Week 9 challenges also asks players to pop 10 golden balloons, and to dance on three different locations around the map. If you’re struggling to complete this weeks tasks, you can use our handy Season 7 Week 9 challenges guide.


Fortnite Baba Yaga skin release date leaked

The release date of Fortnite’s Baba Yaga skin has been leaked ahead of time, and it’s not all that too far away.

With Halloween being just around the corner, Epic Games have activated their annual Fortnitemares celebrations. The yearly event has brought changes to the battle royale island, as well as the ability to play as a shadow while your teammate is still alive in a match. 

Though given its Halloween, and players want to dress in new skins, the devs have brought back some classic looks – including the Skull Trooper – while also releasing some brand new cosmetics like Party Trooper and the Bone Squad.

Yet, one of the spookiest skins, Baba Yaga, is still yet to hit the Item Shop. The skin takes its name and look from the classic eastern European folk tale about a terrifying-looking old woman.

The skin was leaked prior to the recent Fortnitemares update by a number of data miners, though, the wait has been on ever since, with players hoping to see it in the Item Shop.

Well, that wait isn’t going to last all that much longer, as leaker ShiinaBR posted that, according to their reliable source, it will be available as a part of the Item Shop rotation on Monday, October 26. 

In the leaks, the skin is labeled as being ‘Rare’ so, it should set you back around between 1200 and 1600 V Bucks. 

Obviously, while Shiina has posted tonnes of reliable information in the past, the final say, of course, goes to Epic Games and they could very well change their mind and put a different skin in the Item Shop.

That might seem like a bit of an extreme move, changing dates just because one has been leaked, but there are plenty of skins that have been leaked in the past that are still nowhere to be seen.
