Season 4 of Fortnite continues with yet another week of challenges. As we draw nearer to the tenth and final week of Season 4, we should see more and more clues as to what the next season holds in store.
In the meantime, however, there’s still the grind to Tier 100 and the Omega skin. Even if you’ve completed all 100 Tiers, there are still seven weeks of Blockbuster challenges to complete and a special skin that will be officially unveiled Thursday.
Meanwhile, even if you’ve gotten to Tier 100, you’ll still need to level up in order to unlock all the customizations for Carbide and Omega. Epic Games really makes you work for it these days.
In any case, here are all the challenges for Season 4, Week 7:
- Deal damage with a pickaxe to opponents (250)
- Search Chests in Risky Reels (7)
- Consume Hop Rocks, Apples, or Mushrooms (20)
- Score a goal on different pitches (5)
- Follow the treasure map found in Pleasant Park (1) (HARD)
- Assault Rifle Eliminations (5) (HARD)
- Eliminate opponents in Shifty Shafts (3) (HARD)
How To Solve Week 7 Challenges
Below we’ll look at the best ways to solve each of these, with links to individual guides for the more detailed stuff like the Treasure Map.
How To Deal Damage With A Pickaxe To Opponents – 5 Battle Stars
This is going to be such an annoying challenge, honestly. There’s nothing fun about whacking other players with a pickaxe. In order to do so without immediately being shot to death, your best bet is to go somewhere really crowded like Tilted Towers and just follow other players as they land. Then hit them a bunch before they can get a gun. You could try to do this in one round, but chances are you’ll need to spread it out over several. The pickaxe doesn’t do much damage, and by the time you’ve bashed one player enough you’ll probably be wounded and everyone else on the map (except those trying to complete the same challenge) will be armed.
Search Chests In Risky Reels – 5 Battle Stars
Risky Reels is a small area with lots of chests, so this shouldn’t be too hard. Look in the long building on the eastern side of the area and then up by the movie screen. Often there’s one or two in the center near the crater and one in the bathroom in the western building. Basically this is a tiny area and it shouldn’t take long to find all the chests, though you may encounter stiff resistance this week.
Consume Hop Rocks, Apples, or Mushrooms – 5 Battle Stars
You can find these consumables all over the map. Apples are near trees…for obvious reasons. Basically anywhere you can find trees, you can find apples. Wailing Woods might be a good place to start. Mushrooms are near swampy areas, so Moisty Mires is a safe bet. Again, you should be able to find both these items all over the place. Just keep your eyes peeled for red apples and blue mushrooms, which give you 5 health and 5 shield respectively. Hop Rocks can be found in or around craters all over the map. But the simplest way to solve this challenge is to simply go run around Dusty Divot and consume all the Hop Rocks you can find.
Score A Goal On Five Pitches – 5 Battle Stars
There are several soccer fields on the Fortnite map, but also a few other locations that let you score a goal. To find all of these, check out this handy guide.
Follow the treasure map found in Pleasant Park – 10 Battle Stars
To solve the treasure map found in Pleasant Park check out this guide and map.
Assault Rifle Eliminations – 10 Battle Stars
This one needs no explanation. Find an Assault Rifle and shoot people with it. Assault Rifles have decent mid-range accuracy so play some rounds of 50 vs 50 and just shoot at the other team. You should rack up damage quickly.
Eliminate Opponents In Shifty Shafts – 10 Battle Stars
Go to Shifty Shafts and may the odds be ever in your favor. Shotguns are your best bet here, as this area is designed around close-quarters combat.
That’s all folks!
