More Fortnite challenges are now live, week Week 7 presenting players with another batch of seven different things to do while playing. A number of them are fairly routine, while one is essentially a tie-in to coincide with the start of the World Cup, and another has you dealing with a treasure map. Here’s how to complete them all.
With the challenges debuting in-game on the same day the World Cup begins, one challenge asks you to score a goal on different pitches. You’ll need to do this one five times, and it involves heading to one of the soccer fields scattered around the match and knocking the soccer ball into the goal. You don’t have to do all five in a single round of Battle Royale, and there are more than five total to come across. Among those are ones located in Pleasant Park, Risky Reels, Fatal Fields, and Flush Factory, as well as one southeast of Junk Junction.
Another challenge you might need some direction with asks you to follow the treasure map found in Pleasant Park. You can go there and secure the map, or, if you know where it leads, you can simply head right to the end point. This one takes you to the eastern edge of Tilted Towers. There’s a small mountain with a pair of trees on top; try to land there at the start of a match (or build your way up) and you’ll be able to collect the Battle Star icon.
The only other challenge that isn’t completely straightforward tells you to consume hop rocks, apples, or mushrooms. These are consumable items that are used immediately on pick-up that have been added during Season 4. They can be found in a variety of locations, but your best is to head to Dusty Divot, where you’ll find numerous hop rocks littered around the impact site, outside the fenced-in area.
As for the rest of Week 7’s challenges, they involve using the right weapons or being in the right place. Searching chests in Risky Reels is as simple as landing there repeatedly and grinding your way to the seven you need. To eliminate opponents in Shifty Shafts, you’ll want to do the same thing, starting out the match there and trying to beat other players to weapons. If it’s an assault rifle, all the better, as you can complete your assault rifle eliminations that way. For both of those, you’ll want to attempt this in a solo playlist, where you don’t have to deal with downing players and then having to finish them off. On the other hand, for the final challenge–deal 250 damage with a pickaxe to opponents–your easiest path is to play a in a team game, down an enemy, and then swing away.
