Fortnite Challenges (Week 7): What To Do For Expedition Outposts Challenge And More (Season 7)
I smell Battle Stars.
We’re now in Week 7 of Fortnite Season 7. There's a new patch and a collection of challenges now available, so if you're planning on unlocking everything the Battle Pass has to offer you'll need to grind them out. Complete the challenges, earn the Battle Stars, level up the Battle Pass, and unlock the cosmetics--you know how it goes.
[Update: Week 7 challenges remain available, but you can also now take a stab at what Week 8 has to offer. The most challenging of the bunch includes a search between a mysterious hatch, giant rock lady, and precarious flatbed; you can get help tracking that down in our guide.]
As always, challenges are separated into two categories. The first is a free set available to anyone that has the game. The second set, however, is exclusive to those that have spent V-Bucks to unlock the premium version.
In the free category, players will need to visit seven Expedition Outposts that are scattered across the island; we've put together a map and video (above) to help you figure out where to go and what to do. Other free challenges include being asked to use a Rift or Rift-To-Go in three different matches, and also to score three pistol kills.
If you've got the paid Battle Pass, you can get yourself a few more Battle Stars. To do so, you'll need to complete a multi-stage challenge that begins with you landing at Salty Springs.Once you've done that, the next stage will reveal itself--there are a total of five stages. You'll also need to search seven treasure chests at either Loot Lake or Frosty Flights and destroy one X-4 Stormwing while it's in flight. The final challenge is another multi-parter which begins by asking you to do 200 points of damage in a single match.
Take a look below for a full breakdown of all the Fortnite Season 7, Week 7 challenges.

Things are getting weird in Fortnite once again. Kevin the Cube might be a distant memory at this point, but for those that miss having a giant, mysterious entity floating in the air, there’s something new to get excited about.
On January 16, as part of the 7.20 update, an icy orb appeared above Polar Peak. If it ends up being anything like dearly departed Kevin, it will lead to a world event. Interestingly, group of eggs also showed up beneath the castle, and a bunker has been found near Happy Hamlet--it was previously blocked by an iceberg.
The orb’s frosty nature fits with the winter theme for the season. At the start of Season 7 an icy chill swept through the island, giving certain areas a snowy makeover. It could be that the orb either expands the impact of this cold spell, or completely undoes it, changing the state of the island as setup for Season 8. The eggs and bunker are likely to play a part in what happens on the island next, but as of yet what that is remains unclear.
Fortnite's 7.20 update also brought back glider redeploy and introduced a new gun: the Scoped Revolver. You’ve still got a few more weeks to complete remaining challenges from Season 7, and you can use the tips in our complete Season 7 challenges guide to get it all done before the new season kicks off.
