Fortnite: Battle Royale Season X, Week 7 began Thursday morning, bringing with it a new limited-time set of Summer Slurp challenges that includes the usual weekly loading screen, a clue, and access to a secret battle star. Despite being called Summer Slurp, there’s not really any coherent theme at play in the challenges themselves.
Like every other week, these challenges will unlock one per day at the usual 9 a.m. Eastern time, and once players are able to complete three of them, they’ll unlock the loading screen. Based on early data-mining leaks, we already know what the full list of challenges will look like.
- Explosive weapon Eliminations
- Use different trap slot items
- Search a Chest, Ammo Box, and Vending Machine in the same match
- Deal damage with Shotguns to opponents
- Land at Frosty Flights or Haunted Hills in different matches
- Deal damage with Pistols to opponents
- Search Chests at Greasy Grove or Sunny Steps
The earlier players will be able to access the secret loading screen is Saturday, when the third challenge unlocks.
The image is chock full of different horrifying versions of the Moisty Merman skin. Front and center is Swamp Stalker, a new skin that hasn’t been released just yet. Directly above her knee is a taco spray-painted on the wall rather than the silhouette of the secret battle star, a rather obtuse clue that players will have to visit the newly re-established Greasy Grove added recently to the game as a Rift Zone.
You can’t miss the perfect circle on grassy land in the middle of the snow biome these days, so head to Greasy Grove and look for the restaurant in the northwest part of the town.
Walk into the taco restaurant and head to the northeast corner of the interior. The secret battle star should be in a little nook between some booths.
Like all loading screen challenges this season, this one will only be available until “Summer Slurp” ends at the start of the next weekly reset on Thursday.
Players have until 9 a.m. Eastern on Thursday, September 19 to access “The Return” challenges, the loading screen, and the treasure that it leads you to.
