Those are all of the challenges available in Week 1 of Fortnite Season 7, then, but how do you complete them all? Good question, and in the rest of this article we'll go through each task one by one.
Pick up an item of each rarity
To complete this challenge you’ll need to pick up one item of each rarity.
So you’ll need to nab one item which fits into each of these rarities: Common, Uncommon, Rare, Epic and Legendary.
There’s no incredibly fast way of doing this, apart from going ahead and looting as much as you can. Focus on cracking open as many chests as you can, scouring the map for areas which haven’t been looted and stripping items from defeated enemies. If anything, this is a challenge you’ll complete over time, so don’t put too much pressure on yourself to get it done super fast.
Dance in different Forbidden Locations
For this one, you’ll want to keep an eye out for signposts which explicitly say that you shouldn’t dance in the area.
This challenge was featured all the way back in Season 3, and we’ve linked a video by HarryNinetyFour down below which showcases all the updated locations.
Play matches with at least one elimination
To get this challenge done and dusted, you need to play a total of 5 matches, having scored at least one elimination.
As long as you secure a kill or two, and survive as long as you can, you’ll begin gradually working towards challenge completion.
Stage 1: Dance on top of a crown of RV’s
As always, HarryNinetyFour has your back.
To get this challenge done, simply visit all three of the locations in order and bust a move
- Stage 1: Dance on top of a crown of RV’s
- Stage 2: Dance on top of metal turtle
- Stage 3: Dance on top of a submarine
We’ve linked his videos down below.
Deal headshot damage to opponents
This one’s pretty self explanatory. You’ll need to deal 500 headshot damage in total to opponents, so make sure you’re being as precise as possible in fights.
If aim isn’t your strong point, we’d highly recommend finding a mouse sensitivity which isn’t too high, and feels comfortable. Try and avoid pointing your cursor at the floor, and hold it in the middle of the screen as default. This way you’ll have less travel time between shots and you’ll have more time to line up a headshot.
We’d also recommend getting hold of weapons which are more accurate than most - Assault Rifles and Sniper Rifles are your best bet here.
Stage 1: Search Ammo Boxes in a single match
This is a multi-stage affair which will have you scouring the map for Ammo Boxes at first. They’re actually quite easy to miss, so make sure you search each room thoroughly for those pesky, green boxes.
Eliminate opponents in different Named Locations
To complete this final challenge you need to eliminate 1 enemy in 5 different Named Locations across the map. By “Named Location”, it means anywhere on the map with a name - a significant location, so to speak.
It’s worth landing at certain Named Locations as fast as you can, doing your utmost to get to the loot before everyone and attempting to bag an early kill before your enemies have had a chance to gear up.
For the kills to count, make sure you don’t leave the game early. Just play them out!
