How to Complete All Week 7 Challenges
Damage Opponents in Vehicles
The legendary quest for week 7 is pretty straightforward. Simply shoot and damage opponents when they’re driving a vehicle.
The easiest vehicle to get these eliminations in will be boats, so we’d advise you head to the likes of Sweaty Sands, Craggy Cliffs, or Coral Castle where there are a number of these boats and players are likely to make use of them.
Visit Houses in Slurpy Swamp in a Single Match – Fortnite Week 7 Challenge Guide
For this challenge, you’ll need to visit three different houses in Slurpy Swamp. This location can be found in the southwest section of Fortnite’s map, and is a darker shade of green on the map.
The easiest way to complete this Fortnite week 7 challenge is to head to the area we’ve circled on the map above, on the far west side of the named location. Here, you’ll find a three houses grouped close together that you can quickly run in and out of to complete the challenge.
Collect Books from Holly Hedges and Sweaty Sands
For this one, you’ll need to head to either Holly Hedges or Sweaty Sands and collect books. We’re still awaiting confirmation on exactly what these books will look like, but as soon as we’ve got more information for you, we’ll update this section and run you through the locations.
Consume Shield Potions – Fortnite Week 7 Challenge Guide
This is a nice and easy challenge. Simply consume three shield potions over the course of as many matches as you’d like. These can be either the smaller potions that grant 25 shield, or the larger blue rarity variant that grant 50 shield. Pop three of these and the challenge will be complete.
Destroy Slurp Barrels
Slurp Barrels can be found all over the map, but they’re most commonly found in Slurpy Swamp in the southwest corner of the map. Land here, and use your harvester to destroy the barrels. Doing so will also grant you a bit of shield, too.
Slurpy Swamp is likely to be busy over the next few days from when Fortnite’s week 7 challenges go live, though, so be prepared to do this over the course of a few games.
Search 7 Chests in Slurpy Swamp – Fortnite Week 7 Challenge Guide
Another nice and easy quest. Simply search 7 chests in Slurpy Swamp and you’ll complete the challenge. We’d advise playing the Team Rumble mode, as this reduces the number of players that can eliminate you while you’re running around trying to get the chests.
Plus only 49 other players will be on the battle bus on that side of the map, further reducing your chances of being killed.
Gain Max Shields in a Single Match
There are a number of ways you can gain shields in Fortnite. These are:
Stand in the Slurpy Swamp river and your shield will slowly increaseUse Shield PotionsBreak Slurp BarrelsDestroy Slurp Truck ContainersUse Chug Splashes
Use any of the above methods to reach 100 shield in a match and you’ll complete this challenge.
Eliminations with Zero Shield – Fortnite Week 7 Challenge Guide
We’d advise doing this right at the beginning of a match. Land in a popular landing spot such as Pleasant Park, Salty Towers, or even Slrupy Swamp while these challenges are live and pick up a weapon. Immediately go to eliminate another player before picking up any shield items.
We’d advise trying to creep up on them, so there’s less chance of them eliminating you first.
