Fortnite Challenges (Week 7): Destroy Trees, Skydive Through Floating Rings, And More (Season 6)
Battle Stars! Get your Battle Stars!
It's been exciting times in the world of Fortnite lately. The Halloween event, Fortnitemares, came to a close--and in quite spectacular fashion, with a one-time event that transported players into an alternate world. In the aftermath of the event, Kevin the cube has vanished, and a new land mass has appeared in Loot Lake. The full implications of this remain to be seen, but we expect developer Epic Games will be digging into the mysteries of the new location over the coming weeks. In the meantime, there are challenges to be completed, as well as a new patch.
At this point all of this should be second nature, but here's a quick primer for the newcomers: Each week there's a fresh set of Fortnite challenges for players to complete. By doing so, players earn Battle Stars which level up the Battle Pass and unlocks cosmetic rewards. Some challenges, and thus unlocks, are exclusive to those that have spent money on a paid-tier for the Battle Pass.
This week's challenges are pretty straightforward. On the free side, you'll need to get seven ammo boxes in a single match, deal 500 headshot damage to enemies, and--as part of a three stage challenge--deal 300 damage to opponents in a single match. Once you've done that, the next stage will reveal itself, and the same goes for the third stage.
For those that have paid for a Battle Pass, you'll need to do another multi-stage challenge which begins with destroying 50 trees. There's also a third multi-stage challenge that kicks off with consuming five apples. Other challenges in this tier involve skydiving through 20 floating rings and eliminating three opponents in Pleasant Park.

Epic recently rolled out Fortnite update v6.22 and introduced two new limited-time modes. The first LTM is Team Terror, which pits two teams of 32 against each other with the goal of wiping out the opposing side. However, Cube Monsters, the enemies that players had to battle against during the Fortnitemares event, will also be out for blood.
The second LTM is Blitz, which speeds up the Battle Royale formula by making the storm circle start to close in right from the start of the match. On top of that, it'll shrink more frequently than usual, so matches should last around 15 minutes.
The patch also introduces the new heavy assault rifle. Plus the update laid the groundwork for new NFL skins that are expected to be out later this week. If you've still got outstanding challenges from previous weeks check out our Season 6 challenge guide.
