Another week, another set of challenges. The new Thursday schedule means there is plenty of time to prepare for the coming week’s tasks in order to get those sweet Battle Stars.
Data mining site Fortnite Tracker leaked the Week 7 Challenges for Fortnite: Battle Royale. Unlike last week’s combat heavy missions, this week seems to have a bit more gathering and exploring. Don’t let your guard down though, as there are plenty of players who will take anyone out at a moment’s notice.
As usual, there are two unique tasks for this week. “Consume Foraged Items” refers to the mushrooms and apples now scattered on the map that will increase a player’s shield and health, respectively. The other “Score a goal on different pitches” is a little interesting. The challenge says three goals, but there are two soccer fields known in the game, one in Pleasant Park and the other located in a building near Tilted Towers. So where is the third one? Will Epic Games make one magically appear for the week or is there possibly one place in the game that no player has found yet? Or it could be an error, which can happen.
The other challenges are par for the course. “Deal damage with a Pickaxe to opponents” is tricky, but if you make this a priority to use the pickaxe at the very beginning of a match, it can be done although it’ll take a few tries. There will be another treasure map although this time there is no location on whether the map will be. This could be an error or maybe Epic is upping the difficulty on these challenges. “Search Chests in Risky Reels,” “Assault Rifle Eliminations,” and “Eliminate opponents in Shifty Shafts” are all self-explanatory and will depend on a player’s skill to determine how quickly these tasks can be completed.
Fortnite: Battle Royale Week 7 Challenges will take effect on Thursday. Considering there are some questionable challenges this week, expect a slight modification when they go live.
For Season 4, Epic added Blockbuster Challenges once all the Weekly Challenges are completed. The Week 6 Blockbuster Battle Star can be found at the Fork Knife food truck in Greasy Grove.
