The Fortnite island has been full of players frolicking in the snow over the last few days–and by frolicking we mean desperately trying to not get killed by other players and the hordes of ice monsters. Still, it’s good times. We’re now in Fortnite Season 7, Week 9, and the fun is set to continue with a new batch of weekly challenges. As always, get these done and earn the Battle Stars to upgrade your Battle Pass. As you level the pass up, new cosmetics will be unlocked for you–easy as ice pie.
In the free category, the week’s challenges involve using the Sneaky Snowman item in three different matches, eliminating three enemies at Junk Junction or Retail Row, and completing a multi-stage challenge that begins with landing at Retail Row.
However, if you want to maximize your Battle Star earnings, you’ll need to have a premium, paid for with V-Bucks Battle Pass. For those that have one of those, the extra set of challenges will require you to pop 10 golden balloons, get three kills with a shotgun, and complete two timed trials in an X-4 Stormwing Plane. Additionally, there’s a another multi-stage challenge that involves dancing on three specific items on the island.
- Use a Sneaky Snowman in different matches (3) — 5 Battle Stars
- Stage 1: Land at Retail Row — 1 Battle Star
- Eliminate opponents at Junk Junction or Retail Row (3) — 10 Battle Stars
- Pop 10 golden balloons (10) — 5 Battle Stars
- Stage 1: Dance on a sundial — 1 Battle Star
- Shotgun eliminations 3 — 10 Battle Stars
- Complete timed trials in an X-4 Stormwing plane (2) — 10 Battle Stars
