Fortnite‘s seventh season is now live, and with it comes a slew of new content for fans to sink their teeth into, including snowy peaks, an ariel vehicle, and a brand new creative mode. As always, a new season also means new challenges, and the Season 7, Week 1 challenges are now available.
For players that do not own a Battle Pass, there are three free challenges:
- Pickup an item of each rarity 5
- Dance in different forbidden locations 7
- Play matches with at least one elimination (HARD) 5
The first and third challenges should be easily completed after playing a few matches, however, dancing in the seven forbidden locations will take a bit more work. This type of challenge was first introduced in Fortnite‘s third season, and it requires that players bust-a-move in front of signs depicting a crossed out dancer. Forbes has shared this handy map to help players find these locations:
While this is the full extent of this week’s free challenges, Battle Pass owners will have access to four additional challenges (two of which consist of multiple parts):
- Dance on top of a crown of RV’s; Dance on top of a Metal Turtle; Dance on top of a Submarine
- Deal Headshot Damage to opponents 500
- Stage 1: Search Ammo Boxes in a single match (HARD) 5
- Eliminate opponents in different Named Locations (HARD) 5
The second and fourth challenges are easy enough, but the remaining two multi-part challenges will require some more effort.
In the first challenge, players will need to find the three specified locations (in the order listed) and dance in them. Once again, Forbes has shared maps with these locations indicated:
Details on the third challenge (the second multi-part challenge) are still developing, however, it should not be overly difficult to loot five Ammo Boxes in a single match for players that are dedicated to doing so. This article will be updated when full details on this challenge are available.
There is a lot to explore and experience with today’s Fortnite update, and plenty of players are certain to be excited about the newly introduced cosmetics. Completing these first week challenges is a great opportunity to get a jump-start on acquiring them.
