We’re nearing the end of Season 7 of Fortnite, but Epic still has plenty of challenges in store for players before Season 8 arrives. Week 7’s challenges are now available across all platforms, giving everyone another opportunity to score Battle Stars and unlock some Season 7 rewards. This week’s objectives are fairly straightforward, although perhaps the trickiest of the bunch is to visit seven Expedition Outposts.
On top of leveling up your Battle Pass, there’s an extra incentive to complete as many challenges as you can this season. If you manage to finish all of the tasks from a given week, you’ll complete a related Snowfall challenge, which will reward you with a special loading screen. These screens typically feature some cool artwork, but what makes them particularly worthwhile is they also contain a clue that points to a free Battle Star or Banner–depending on how many weekly sets of challenges you’ve completed–hidden somewhere around the map.
If you’ve completed seven weeks’ worth of challenges, you’ll unlock the loading screen pictured below. This one features the mysterious Ice King sitting ominously on his frozen throne. While the clue each loading screen hides is typically subtle, this week’s is easy to spot. Look on the left side of the image and you’ll notice a Battle Star peering out between the ice surrounding the throne, giving you a clear indication of where you need to go.
The Ice King’s castle can be found atop Polar Peak, the snowy mountain that appeared at the beginning of Season 7. Chart a course to the area at the start of the match, make your way into the throne room, and the Battle Star will appear next to the throne, just as teased. Collect it and finish the match, and you’ll level your Battle Pass up by one tier.
If you need help finding the Battle Star, you can watch us collect it in the video above. As usual, however, this Battle Star will only appear if you’ve completed enough challenges and unlocked the above loading screen, so you won’t simply be able to go to the right location and find it if you haven’t put in the necessary work.
Season 8 of Fortnite is approaching, and some strange new objects have started to appear in the game, most notably a mysterious ice sphere. We’ll likely learn more about its significance in the coming weeks, but in the meantime, you can still complete any remaining challenges from this season. We’ve put together tips on how to do that in our complete Season 7 challenges guide. You can also peruse the guides below to see where to find this season’s other free Battle Stars and Banners.
