This winter theme and snowmobile concept would look incredible in Fortnite

With the Halloween themed Fortnitemares event now all wrapped up in Fortnite, the player-base is turning its attention to the next major season – winter. 

It’s clear that fans have high expectations for what Epic Games may have in store for the winter season, with many speculating that there could be numerous themed map changes.


As is usually the case, the creative minds on Reddit have already come up with several concepts for what winter could look like in Fortnite.

User ‘statum12’ suggested that Lonely Lodge should be filled with snow for the month of December, and a fast travel ski lift be added as a way to get to and from the location.


According to this concept, the snowy terrain would only be in a specific location, and not spread to other places throughout the map.


If a winter theme like this were to be applied to Fortnite, it would also make sense for there to be a snowmobile type vehicle added as well.

Reddit user ‘snowy6191’ came up with this concept image for the ‘Snowcrasher’ vehicle, and it would likely be found in areas of the map where there would be snow.

The Snowcrasher can either be a new, standalone vehicle or be a temporary replacement for the Quadcrashers that were added in recent months.

Despite its design and name, the Snowcrasher would likely also be able to operate on the map’s other terrain, not just snow. While this may not make much sense, not everything in Fortnite has to be ultra realistic. 

Whether or not any of these ideas get added to the game remains to be seen, but players can rest assured in their expectations that there will be themed changes of some sorts made to the map.


Last winter, the Battle Bus and many of the pine trees on the map were adorned with Holiday lights and ornaments, and the Grenade Launcher was adjusted to shoot exploding snowballs rather than grenades.

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

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.
