Our Fortnite Week 9 Season 7 Challenges guide contains a list of all the challenges available this week, as well as a number of tips to help you complete them easily.

We’re approaching the end of Season 7, but the challenges never let up. That’s right, there’s another set to complete this week, each rewarding you with a number of Battle Stars which will go towards levelling up your Battle Pass.

You’ll be tasked with hunting for Golden Balloons, dancing at three unique locations and even completing timed trials in an X-4 Stormwing.

Below we’ve listed all of Week 9’s challenges, along with some strategy advice for completing some of the toughest.

Tips and Tricks

Below we’ve compiled some tips for the toughest challenges in Week 9.

Golden Balloon Locations

To complete this challenge, you need to find 10 golden balloons across Fortnite’s map and pop them. They’re pretty small and deliberately tucked away in some pretty obscure locations, to the point where you could spend hours searching for them all.

We’ve put together an All Golden Balloon locations guide to help you out, so open it up in a new tab and get to finding them all. It contains a map, video and text descriptions too!

Stage 1: Dance on a sundial

For this challenge, you need to dance on top of three unique locations on Fortnite’s map:

  • Dance on top of a sundial
  • Dance on top of an oversized cup of coffee
  • Dance on top of a giant metal dog head

Make sure you check out our Where to dance on top of a sundial, oversized cup of coffee and giant metal dog head guide for a complete breakdown.

Complete three timed trials in an X-4 Stormwing plane

This challenge requires you to hop into an X-4 Stormwing plane, find three glowing hoops and complete their associated timed trial. It’s effectively just a case of finding the starting hoop, and once you’ve passed through it, you’ll just need to follow the designated route and pass through the rest of the hoops.

This video by HarryNinetyFour shows you where to find all the timed trial locations:
