Is Fortnite’s Ice King going to die this season? Here’s why it might happen

Fortnite has changed a lot already in Season 7, but the latest arrival of a huge ice ball dangling over the map has led some fans to believe that things are falling into place for one character’s impending death.

The latest season has brought so many different features to the game, with the controversial Infinity Blade and the X-4 Stormwing planes coming in at the beginning and the latest addition of an ice ball hovering over the map for all to see. 


Fortnite has built a reputation of being incredibly unpredictable of late, but one fan believes that the developer is working towards the climax of a rather epic storyline. If this theory is correct, things could be about to heat up. 

The Ice King featured heavily in Fortnite’s Season 7 promotional material at the beginning.

A recent post to the FortniteBR subreddit from ANattyLight seems to have garnered strong interest from the game’s online community, as their take on the current situation on Fortnite draws interesting comparisons between the arrival of an ice ball in the sky and an old Arthurian tale. 


The Reddit user has suggested that the current story being developed by Epic Games is in fact following the tale of Mordred, and they believe that it will end with the upcoming death of the Ice King. 

u/ANattyLightFortnite fan spots similarities between leaked Malcore skin and the Arthurian tale of Mordred.

“There are five chairs at the round table. Ice Queen, King, Knight, Ranger, Raven. The Ice King’s son, Malcore, betrayed him and his seat was taken away – hence the absence of chair. This follows the story of Mordred and looks nearly identical to him. The Ice King will die this season” the user explained. 

‘Malcore’ was one of eight Fortnite skins which were leaked on January 16 and this fan seems to think that it will prove to be a prominent figure moving forward, by killing the Ice King. 


The Ice King was first introduced to Fortnite players at the very beginning of Season 7, on December 6, and was the centrepiece of the game’s advertising at that stage. The buzz around the character, though, had seemingly started to quell, until the arrival of a brand new set of Ice Storm challenges and a whole bunch of new characters were leaked.

Will the character be killed? We’ll have to wait and see.

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 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.
