Skydive through floating rings for Fortnite Week 7, Season 6 challenge

The week 7 challenges are upon us for Season 6 of Fortnite Battle Royale, and an old favorite makes an appearance once again, tasking you with Skydiving through floating rings, twenty of them to be exact.

Unlike some challenges, you don’t need to complete this challenge in a single match, which is good, because you almost certainly wouldn’t be able to.

As any Fortnite player will know, you enter the map through the battle bus, and then immediately skydive towards the island map, ready to take the victory royale.

This challenge aims to spruce up the receptiveness of this skydiving by adding something extra to think about, with floating rings dotted around the sky.

There are two types of rings, purple and blue. These colors show how high or low the rings are in the sky, which will allow you to see at a glance what to aim for to head through two in a single dive.

Purple rings are higher, while the blue rings are lower – and low enough that you should be able to guide your way to a blue one after hitting a purple one.

When diving, you simply want to aim for the center of the ring at all times. Don’t try to get fancy and aim for the outer edge, because you don’t want to accidentally miss it, and you also want to make sure that the game registers you went through it.

Earlier iterations of this challenge sometimes had issues where diving through a ring didn’t immediately register. Although this bug was later resolved, you still want to make sure your dive counted.


Check out the full list of challenges for Week 7 here, along with tips for completing every one.

Fortnite Baba Yaga skin release date leaked

The release date of Fortnite’s Baba Yaga skin has been leaked ahead of time, and it’s not all that too far away.

With Halloween being just around the corner, Epic Games have activated their annual Fortnitemares celebrations. The yearly event has brought changes to the battle royale island, as well as the ability to play as a shadow while your teammate is still alive in a match. 

Though given its Halloween, and players want to dress in new skins, the devs have brought back some classic looks – including the Skull Trooper – while also releasing some brand new cosmetics like Party Trooper and the Bone Squad.

Yet, one of the spookiest skins, Baba Yaga, is still yet to hit the Item Shop. The skin takes its name and look from the classic eastern European folk tale about a terrifying-looking old woman.

The skin was leaked prior to the recent Fortnitemares update by a number of data miners, though, the wait has been on ever since, with players hoping to see it in the Item Shop.

Well, that wait isn’t going to last all that much longer, as leaker ShiinaBR posted that, according to their reliable source, it will be available as a part of the Item Shop rotation on Monday, October 26. 

In the leaks, the skin is labeled as being ‘Rare’ so, it should set you back around between 1200 and 1600 V Bucks. 

Obviously, while Shiina has posted tonnes of reliable information in the past, the final say, of course, goes to Epic Games and they could very well change their mind and put a different skin in the Item Shop.

That might seem like a bit of an extreme move, changing dates just because one has been leaked, but there are plenty of skins that have been leaked in the past that are still nowhere to be seen.
