Week 9 of the Snowfall challenge in Fortnite once again features a Battle Star, meaning all Battle Pass owners on PC, PS4, Xbox One or any other platform have a free Battle Pass tier just waiting to be collected. Here’s how to find it.

The Snowfall challenge is a bonus challenge that runs 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 was leaked by data miners after the release of the v7.30 patch.


*UPDATE* If you have kept up with all the weekly challenges, this is the week you will finally be able to unlock the Prisoner skin. This skin has four stages, and you will need to find keys to unlock each stage – the location of the first key has already been discovered.

The Snowfall challenge is very similar to the Hunting Party, Road Trip and Blockbuster challenges from past seasons; players that complete all seven challenges for a given week will unlock a loading screen that contains a hint for where to find a secret Fortnite Battle Star or Banner.


The loading screen for the ninth week of the season was leaked shortly after the release of the v7.30 patch on January 29, so we already knew exactly where we need to look in order to complete the Snowfall challenge when it went live on January 31.

The Snowfall loading screen for Week 9 of Season 7 can be seen below. The hint this week is pretty tricky to spot so we’ve circled it for you:

The Week 9 Snowfall loading screen also provides a glimpse at the Snowfall skin.

As you might have already guessed, the image scratched into the wall of the icy cave shows the Battle Star located on top of the wooden sleigh that can be found in the center of the D8 coordinate of that map.


The Battle Star will be located at the exact point marked on the map below, on the top of the wood sled.

Simply land on top of the sleigh once you’ve completed all of the Week 9 challenges.

Once you’ve completed all seven of the standard challenges for Week 9, the Snowfall challenge will be unlocked and the Battle Star should be available for collection.

You simply need to go to the location marked on the map and the Battle Star will appear.

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.
