Season 7 of Fortnite: Battle Royale is now underway on PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and mobile. Developer Epic has introduced a load of new content to the game for this season with a big update, including new areas of the map to explore, as well as a plane vehicle, more pets, and of course, new challenges to complete and cosmetics to unlock.
As usual, Epic will release a new set of challenges for Fortnite every week throughout Season 7. These are once again divided up into two categories: those available to everyone, and those only for Battle Pass owners. Completing the challenges will reward you with XP and level your Battle Pass up, thereby allowing you to unlock the new Season 7 Battle Pass rewards.
On top of the standard weekly tasks, Epic has also added new Snowfall challenges this season. These are Season 7’s equivalent of the Hunting Party challenges from Season 6, meaning you can only complete them by finishing all of the challenges from a given week. Doing so will unlock a special loading screen that contains a clue pointing to a free item hidden somewhere around the island.
If you’ve completed all of the challenges from one week, you’ll unlock the loading screen above. It depicts Zenith–one of the two new progress skins you’ll receive automatically for purchasing a Season 7 Battle Pass–ziplining down the side of the snow mountain that was introduced to the island this season. If you look just left of the character, you’ll spot a a crashed submarine on one of the peaks in the background, above which is the faint silhouette of a Battle Star.
The submarine pictured above is the same one you need to dance atop as part of one of Week 1’s multi-stage challenges. It’s located on the mountain to the east of Frosty Flights. Head to the area at the beginning of a match, locate the submarine, and the Battle Star will appear above it. Collect it as you would any other item and you’ll level your Battle Pass up by one tier.
As was the case with Season 6’s Hunting Party challenges, this Battle Star won’t appear on the island if you don’t first complete the related Snowfall challenge and unlock the aforementioned loading screen. That means you won’t simply be able to go to the right location and collect it until you’ve finished enough challenges. If you need any help doing so, you can find tips and guides in our Season 7 challenges roundup.
