One of the leaked Season 7, Week 6 Fortnite challenges that is sure to confuse some players asks you to ‘Slide an Ice Puck over 150m in a single throw’.

Now, assuming nothing changes when the challenges go live on January 10, the big catch with this challenge is that you will need to be at least level 28 in the Season 7 Battle Pass.

If you haven’t reached level 28 yet, you won’t have gained access to the Ice Puck. This means you won’t be able to equip it in your emote wheel and throw it for the challenge (unless the developers do something sneaky).

The Ice Puck is unlocked at tier 28 in the Battle Pass.

If you’re not level 28 yet, we’d advise you to go back and complete challenges from previous weeks. Challenges are the easiest way to level up through the various tiers. You can find our Week 5 challenge guides here.

If you’re one of the players that has already unlocked the Ice Puck, all you need to do is equip it to your emote wheel and find a location to throw it from. We’d advise you to get to the top of large slope in the snow biome so the 150 meters won’t be a problem. We’d advise the ski slopes near Frosty Flights.

The slopes around Polar Peak and Frosty Flights should be perfect for this challenge.

Once you’ve found your spot, all you need to do is throw the puck using your emote wheel or keybind. If the puck travels 150 meters or more, you will have completed the challenge and earned five Battle Stars.

As always, we would advise you to complete the game before returning to the lobby. If you throw your puck and leave the game before being eliminated, or getting the victory royale, your challenge progress might not be saved.

You can check out our Season 7, Week 6 Fortnite challenges and how to complete them hub for more information on all of this week’s challenges.

Once you’ve completed the seven standard challenges, you’ll unlock the Week 6 Snowfall challenge and be able to find the secret Banner.

How to open chests in Upstate New York for Fortnite Week 10 challenges

The tenth week of Fortnite’s Season 4 has arrived, and with a new set of weekly challenges comes one task that asks players to open chests in Upstate New York. While this may sound confusing, here’s everything you need to make this challenge simple. 

Fortnitemares has officially arrived, with Midas reappearing for the first time since his Device experiment backfired badly, flooding the entire island at the end of Season Two. Midas has regained control of The Agency, and his army of Shadow Henchmen are ready to cause chaos.

Of course, the overarching Season 4 storyline is all about superheroes, with Marvel characters invading the island. The evil Galactus is on his way, and heroes like Tony Stark, Dr. Doom, and Wolverine have made Fortnite their home as they prepare for battle.

With these characters, new POIs and locations have appeared, and to complete this specific challenge you’ll need to head to Upstate New York. While this may sound like a strange request, it actually exists as a landmark inside the game. If you aren’t sure where to find it though, we’ve got everything you need to complete this task.

When Stark Industries arrived in Fortnite Season 4, you may have noticed that the POI is located inside what appears to be a massive bubble, which covers a large portion of the north-east corner of the island. It’s easy to spot, as the area is marked on the map for you, and the trees inside it are lovely shades of yellow and orange, compared to the normal green trees elsewhere.

Fans of Marvel Cinematic Universe will know that Stark calls New York his home, with the Stark Industries tower planted in the middle of New York City. Even the Avengers base in later films is located in Upstate New York. It shouldn’t come as a huge surprise then that his location in Fortnite was originally planted in the state of New York, which has now been transported to the island.

Thankfully, once you know where Upstate New York is, it’s easy to complete this Week 10 challenge, as all you need to do is open seven chests inside this landmark. They don’t even have to be opened in the same match, so just pick them up as you see them and you’ll finish this task eventually. If you’re still not sure where to go, we’ve included an image below.

It may take a couple of visits to Upstate New York to finish off this task, as there will be plenty of other people attempting it too. While Stark Industries has the most chests, it may be easier to head to some of the smaller buildings located in the zone, as they will be quieter and make you less likely to face enemies.

It’s well worth completing this task if you’re ranking up your Season 4 Battle Pass, as this offers a massive 25,000 XP reward, which will help you unlock new skins and cosmetic items.
