Leaked Fortnite loading screens for Week 7 and 8 make the Ice King look seriously evil

For the first time in a number of weeks, Fortnite data miners managed to gain access to the game’s new files on January 15 and were quick to begin leaking upcoming content.

The v7.20 update for Fortnite Battle Royale introduced a number of major changes, including a new take on the Glider Redeploy system and an all-new ‘Scoped Revolver’.


However, data miners like @lucas7yoshi_ on Twitter were more concerned with finding what is coming next, and it didn’t take long for the Week 7 and 8 Snowfall challenge loading screens to be leaked.

Both of the loading screens, which will link in directly with the ongoing Season 7 Snowfall challenges, focus heavily on the Ice King – the tier 100 Battle Pass skin for Season 7.


First, the Week 7 loading screen shows the mysterious character sitting upon his throne in Polar Peak, clutching the armrests. We don’t know about you, but we’re not getting a friendly feel from this one! You can visit our secret Fortnite Battle Star for the Week 7, Season 7 Snowfall challenge guide if you want to know more about this loading screen.

The throne room in Polar Peak just got a lot more sinister.

If the Week 7 screen isn’t enough to convince you that the Ice King has some bad intentions, perhaps the Week 8 one will.

As you can see below, the Ice King is now show looking over the Fortnite map while he appears to be holding a ball of energy or ice in his hand, ready to strike.

The Ice King is almost certainly up to no good.

These loading screens are some of the earliest signs that Season 7’s story is beginning to move along towards its inevitable conclusion that will come when Season 8 begins in February.

Right now, the educated guess would be that the Ice King is going to be up to some serious mischief over the remaining weeks.

And let’s not forget, we still don’t  know what he’s hiding in those eggs under Polar Peak…

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.
