Week 7 of the Snowfall challenge in Fortnite Battle Royale sees everyone’s favorite secret Battle Star return once once again, meaning a free free Battle Pass tier is available, whether you’re playing on PC, PS4, Xbox One or any other platform.

The Snowfall challenge is an ongoing bonus challenge that will run throughout Season 7. If players complete enough of the challenges before the end of the season, they will be rewarded with the mystery Snowfall skin, which should be revealed within the next few weeks.


The challenge is much like the Hunting Party challenge from Season 6 (or the Road Trip and Blockbuster challenges from seasons gone by) – players that complete all of a week’s standard challenges will unlock a loading screen that contains a hint for where to find a hidden Battle Star or Banner.

The loading screen for the seventh week of the season was actually leaked after the v7.20 patch on January 15, meaning we already had a very good idea of where you would need to look in order to complete the Snowfall challenge when it went live on January 17.


The Snowfall loading screen for Week 7 of Season 7 can be found below. We’ve highlighted the hint for you:

The throne room of Polar Peak will be your destination

This clue means that the Battle Star can be found at Polar Peak, one of the icy locations that was added to the map after the v7.00 update at the start of the season.

The exact location is next to the Ice King’s throne inside the main room of the castle. We’ve marked the spot on the map below for you:


Polar Peak has been one of the most popular additions to Fortnite’s map in Season 7.

Once you’ve completed all seven of the standard challenges for Week 7, the Snowfall challenge will be unlocked and the Banner should be available for collection.

The Week 7 challenges went live at 14:00 GMT (09:00 EST, 06:00 PST) on January 17. You can find the full list of challenges, and guides on how to complete them, by visiting our Week 7, Season 7 Fortnite challenges hub.

If you’re still struggling, HarryNinetyFour on YouTube has uploaded a video tutorial that will show you exactly where you need to go.

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)
  • Enter the Vault in Doom’s Domain
  • Destroy Cobwebs at The Authority (3)
  • Discover Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House laboratory
  • Drive a car from Sweaty Sands to Misty Meadows in less than 4 minutes without getting out
  • Deal damage after knocking an opponent back with Storm’s Whirlwind Blast (1,000)
  • Deal damage to opponents at Coral Castle (500)

Stark Industries will be swarmed by teams looking for the secret Lake House

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.
