Fortnite Season 9 is now in its seventh week, which means there are new Battle Stars to be earned. To do this you’ll need to complete the latest set of weekly challenges–those for Week 7–which will score you those precious stars, level up your Battle Pass, and unlock some new cosmetic rewards. As always, challenges are split into two categories: free and paid Battle Pass-exclusive. All of this comes on the heels of both patch 9.30 and a subsequent update that irons out some nagging issues that have emerged in recent days. Here’s the rundown on what Week 7 challenges consist of and how to complete them.
For the most part, Week 7 challenges shouldn’t prove to be difficult, though they might take a bit of time to complete. The free set tasks players with searching chests at specific locations (either Junk Junction or Neo Tilted), finding ammo boxes in a bunch of different named locations (meaning any place on the map that has a name listed), and scoring eliminations using suppressed weapons.
For those with a paid Battle Pass, there are a few more challenges to undertake. These include doing damage while riding in a vehicle; visiting locations as part of a multi-stage challenge in a single match (starting with The Block and Loot Lake); using a chest, a vending machine, and a campfire; and then securing enemy eliminations within 5 meters (which can be done with any weapon, though something like a shotgun or pickaxe is your best bet). Take a look below for the full list.

Fortnite’s new update, 9.30, added a new item called the Chug Splash, which is a throwable that lets you heal yourself and other players. Anyone in range of the explosion will have 20 points of health or shield returned to them. The patch also vaulted the Boom Bow, Dual Pistols, and Dynamite.
