Fortnite Battle Pass Challenges guide: How to complete the weekly challenges

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas as Week 1 of Fortnite Season 7 has arrived, which has also seen announcements that Epic plans to sell PC games through its own Fortnite launcher, and that Fortnite Creative Mode is here to let you build your dream island. A fresh season means a new set of Weekly Challenges to take on, including Free Challenges for all players to collect some Battle Stars, plus an extra four Battle Pass Challenges exclusively for Battle Pass holders to rack up even more Battle Stars and unlock the weekly reward item of 5K XP to boost you up the Tiers.

Most of the challenges are pretty straightforward, but a few require further information to figure out what you have to do. That's where this guide comes in to play, as we've cracked the trickier challenges and done the leg work to solve them so you don't have you. For Week 1 this involves dancing in different forbidden locations, and dancing on top of a crown of RV's (and two more locations). Read on, and you'll be racking up those extra Battle Stars in no time.

Pick up an item of each rarity

Hopefully by now you'll be aware of the rarity of the different types of Fortnite weapons and other items available, which is indicated by their colour. You only need to pick up one item of each rarity, and you can do this in any order over multiple matches. To confirm, these are the five rarities you're looking out for:

  • Grey - common
  • Green - uncommon
  • Blue - rare
  • Purple - epic
  • Gold - legendary


Dance in different forbidden locations

Week 1 sees the return of an absolute classic Fortnite challenge - dancing in different forbidden locations, marked by the iconic 'no dancing' signs. The map has been updated significantly for Season 7 - we've found a total of eleven Fortnite forbidden dance locations, are these are the confirmed boogie spots:

  • B1 - Next to the giant llama sculpture northwest of Junk Junction
  • C4/5 - On top of the mountain south of Pleasant Park
  • E4 - On a rocky island to the east in Loot Lake
  • F2 - In the seating area on the water northeast of Lazy Links
  • H3 - By some rocks, an RV and a car on an outcrop west of Wailing Woods
  • I2 - By an ice cream truck northeast of Risky Reels
  • G5 - On the northeast edge of Dusty Divot by a zipline
  • F6 - Southwest of Dusty Divot on top of the pillar mountain
  • I8 - Southeast of Paradise Palms, on a tall hill with cacti
  • B9 - On top of the peak southeast of Frosty Flights
  • A9 - On the southwest edge of the map


Stage 1: Dance on top of a crown of RV's

Another dancing challenge for Week 1, this one relies on your knowledge of Fortnite geography to dance on top of various landmarks around the island. The first one features a crown of RV's, with two more locations of a metal turtle and a submarine to follow, and these are the three of the places you need to dance:

Crown of RV's - H10

Metal Turtle - J4

Submarine - B8


Eliminate opponents in different Named Locations (HARD)

Season 7 has seen a huge overhaul of the Fortnite map, with the entire southwest section of the island being shrouded in snow thanks to the impact of the iceberg off the coast. For this challenge you need to eliminate an opponent in five different named locations, and there are now 21 different places you can do this as follows:

  • Dusty Divot
  • Fatal Fields
  • Frost Flights
  • Happy Hamlet
  • Haunted Hills
  • Junk Junction
  • Lazy Links
  • Loot Lake
  • Lonely Lodge
