Completing two challenges will unlock the Believer Beach loading screen, and completing six gets you the icy pop wrap for weapons and vehicles. Finally, successful completion of 12 quests grants you the Lil’ Treat emote.

You’ll notice that these Fortnite Cosmic Summer quests are all based on different Community Creation LTMs, and many of them are fairly straightforward.

The first one requires you to deal 100 damage to opponents in the Bios Zone Wars Trios game mode. This will net you the Brain Freeze Slurpberry as a reward.

If you score ten headshots in the same mode, you’ll complete another goal but will receive no additional reward. You can apply 500 shields or health in it to get the Firecracker Freefall contrail.

50 assists from allies will help you earn the Cloud Coral Board, and you can spend ten coins at the vending machine in the Pro 100 minigame for the Brain Freeze Slimeberry.

Dealing 100 damage with a rocket launcher in Pro 100 gets you the Beach Blast music, and you can do 20 revivals for the Cloudy Cat Board reward.

Freaky Flights is a mini-game that takes the battle to the skies. You’ll need to fly 5000 meters in a X-4 Stormwing for the Brain Freeze Orangeberry reward. You can get this done by flying in circles around the area.

During this mini-game, you can spend 50 coins at the vending machine to get the Ka-Bang! wrap. Successfully eliminate 25 players with your X-4 to win the Cloud Crew Board.

In the Pit, you can build 500 structures through the in-game construction mechanic to get the Brain Freeze Whirlberry. Once you’ve finished building those structures, you can destroy them all for the Stellar Sipper emote.

Keep 5 different weapons on you, and use them all to eliminate players in a single match of The Pit to get the Marshmallets pickaxe. If you manage to land 50 headshots while doing this, then you will also get the Golden Wave Board.

Believer Beach disappears in the Fortnite Cosmic Summer Celebration

There’s was theory floating around that the Believer Beach event will cause the total destruction of Coral Castle. A leaked image from data miner TheFoundoFN_7 showed a completely different POI in its place.

Then on the morning of June 22, the whole area disappeared from the Island. Players noticed that a few buildings at Holly Hedges also mysteriously vanished around the same time.

The official Fortnite Status Twitter account then tweeted that they were “investigating” this, but it’s likely that this was an intentional change to build-up hype for the Cosmic Summer party.

The Fortnite Cosmic Summer Celebration event will take place right before the Epic Games offices close for their annual two-week Summer break. We’ll be sure to update this article with more details as they’re announced.

There’s also another event planned for this week in the form of the Thanos cup. This will bring the mad titan back as a new skin, years after his LTM debut in the battle royale.

Where to find Riot in Fortnite Season 7

There are various NPCs scattered across Fortnite Island, and each one serves a different purpose, such as selling weapons or protecting the player. Riot will fire at you on sight, so be ready for a battle.

You can find this NPC on the west side of the Yellow Steel Bridge between Misty Meadow and Catty Corner. Make sure you collect some solid weapons and gear before going to battle against Fortnite Riot, as he will be hostile.

We’ve marked this location on the map below.

Simply take cover as much as possible by building structures or using your surroundings. Once he stops firing at you, you can take your opportunity to shoot him down. Luckily, he isn’t too difficult to bring down.

We recommend keeping a few shield potions on you just in case since the aim of Fortnite Riot is deadly. Once he’s down, you’ll be able to loot him for gear, and the game will reward you with 30,000 XP, so it is definitely worth it to take the time to find Fortnite Riot and defeat the NPC.

After the Alien invasion arrived, many changes came to Fortnite Island. Holly Hedges has been changed to Holly Hatchery, and it’s the area that you’ll need to visit for this Legendary Quest.

This location has changed into a farm for Alien Eggs in Season 7, and there’s a low gravity biome in the area. Head over there, and look for little green orbs that are sprouting out of the ground.

You can also check the southwest portion of the purple crater in the center of the map.

You only need to mark one Alien Egg so make your way to either one of these locations. After you come across one, you can mark it by pinging its location on your map. So use the mouse scroll, or the left D-pad button.

Once that’s done, you’ll earn a total of 30,000 XP. You can also complete the rest of the weekly challenges to earn some extra XP and Battle Stars.

All NPC locations in Fortnite Season 7

Here are the locations for each of Fortnite Season 7’s NPCs who you can duel, hire, and pay to turn you into a prop.



Fortnite Season 7 NPC Locations

Fortnite Season 7 features various wacky NPCs you can visit around the island, so here are all of the Fortnite NPC locations for whenever you might need to find these individuals.

Along with the beginning of Fortnite Season 7 came map changes and the introduction of some new NPCs such as Guggimon and Rick and Morty’s Rick Sanchez. By spending Gold Bars, these NPCs can be hired to fight for you, duel you for some great loot, or turn you into a prop.
