With many fans arguing Fortnite’s regular content drops are slowing down, here’s when to expect a Season 3 update, and when the current Season 2 of Chapter 2 will come to an end. 

It’s hard to believe that it’s nearly 6 months since the black hole swallowed Fortnite’s first chapter, and spat back out Fortnite Chapter 2. Despite initially being praised as the savior of Fortnite, many fans argue that the length of Chapter 2: Season 1 caused the game to lag back into uninspired.


Starting back in October of 2019, Season 1 finally came to a conclusion on February 20, nearly 5 and a half months after it started. In that time, many players argued that new content dried up, and the game became stale. However, as is customary, Season 2 brought with it new content and now, a month on, some players are thinking forwards to what Season 3 will bring, and when it will drop.

Season 2 released in February 2020 with a whole host of changes.

When does Fortnite Season 3 start?

Originally, the second season wasn’t set to last nearly as long as Season 1. Season 2 was set to end on April 30, 2020. However, on April 14, Epic announced that they would be extending it past this original end date.


Season 2 is now set to end towards the beginning of June, with the Season 3 start date officially pushed back to June 4.

In the meantime, Epic has promised fans “multiple game updates on the way that will deliver fresh gameplay, new Challenges, bonus XP, and a couple more surprises.”

Fortnite Season 2 introduced new locations, so we can expect the same in Season 3.

Given the current global situation, a delay to Season 3 was honestly not much of a surprise. It almost entirely depended on how well Epic Games were able to cope, in terms of staff attendance and other obvious factors that had recently become issues.


With Season 3 officially being pushed back, we can still expect some Overtime Challenges to be added as we approach the end of Season 2, though.

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)

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.
