Fortnite Season 7 battle stars

Fortnite Season 7 has finally arrived and brought with it an overhauled Battle Pass where you earn Battle Stars to spend on cosmetic items of your choosing, so here’s how to earn and use them.

Aliens have taken over the Fortnite Island in Season 7, bringing significant map changes, flyable UFOs, and made the Loot Llamas come alive. As with every new season, there’s a new Battle Pass to make your way through, but this one comes with a twist.

As you earn XP to unlock skins for Kymera, Doctor Slone, and Rick Sanchez from ‘Rick and Morty,’ you’ll unlock Battle Stars.

Here’s how to earn and spend Battle Stars in Fortnite Season 7.

What are Battle Stars in Fortnite Season 7?

Battle Stars aren’t a new concept in Fortnite, but they have been revamped for Season 7. Previously, after completing missions or quests around the Fortnite island, you’d be rewarded with a Battle Star, which is essentially a Tier Skip.

In Fortnite Season 7, Battle Stars are a new form of currency that works with the revamped Battle Pass. As you earn Battle Stars, you can purchase items from the pass in any order you choose.

Luckily, earning Battle Stars is simple in Fortnite Season 7; every time you level up, you’ll earn five Battle Stars. Whether that’s by completing challenges or purchasing Battle Pass Levels with V-Bucks, you’ll still earn the five Battle Stars.

And you don’t need to own the Battle Pass to earn them either, Epic Games confirmed that “all players earn the same number of Battle Stars when they level, and each page of the Battle Pass has rewards available for all players to claim as you play.”

As we’ve said before, Battle Stars are used to purchase various items from the Battle Pass. Each page will have several rewards at different prices.

As you progress through the season levels, you’ll unlock more pages with different cosmetics. You don’t have to spend your Battle Stars immediately, you can save up to buy something from a later page. Each page also has an ultimate reward that you’ll get for buying everything on the page, so there’s an incentive to purchase everything from the Battle Pass.

And once you’ve got your hands on all 100 rewards, you can spend your Battle Stars on different outfit option for Doctor Slone and other characters through the Bonus Rewards pages.

The arrival of the Fortnite Season 7 update has brought a plethora of content for you to enjoy, including a brand-new Battle Pass that contains various characters like Rick Sanchez and Superman.

Epic Games are looking to do another Marvel crossover by having Thanos return to the game for the first time since Season 4. The mad titan will be part of a new in-game event, and here’s how you can unlock him.

Thanos will become available in the Fortnite Item Shop for the first time from June 26, 2021. The mad titan will come with his own Infinity Gauntlet Back Bling, complete with all six Infinity Stones. 

You can unlock the Fortnite Thanos skin and his cosmetics earlier by competing in the Thanos Cup on June 21. This will require you to complete a total of 10 matches in 3 hours to earn a point as part of a Duo.

The Fortnite Thanos skin and Back Bling will be the rewards for the top-performing teams in each region, and players that earn 8 total points will receive “Thanos Watches” spray. 

Infinity Gauntlet in Fortnite

If you wish to participate in this event, you’ll need to have an Epic Account at level 30 with 2FA enabled. Thanos was initially available as part of an LTM in Season 4, but now he is here to stay when players start to get the Fortnite Thanos skin.

The Fortnite Thanos skin is a cool-looking outfit, and you can cause some serious havoc around Fortnite Island using the Infinity Gauntlet. The mad titan’s arrival from outer space fits perfectly with Season 7’s alien theme.

Where to find Graffiti in Fortnite

There are brand-new challenges in Week 2 of Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 7, and here’s how you can complete the one that requires you to find graffiti-covered walls at Hydro 16 and Catty Corner.

There is a brand-new set of weekly challenges available for you to complete so that you can earn some XP, progress through the Fortnite Season 7 Battle Pass and unlock the Rick Sanchez skin.

One of the Week 2 Epic Quests requires you to search for a Graffiti-covered wall at either Hydro 16 or Catty Corner. Here’s exactly where you can find each of these locations and get this done.

To complete this Fortnite challenge, you’ll first need to complete another Quest that has you collect spray cans from warehouses around Pleasant Park and Dirty Docks. You should be able to find those easily enough.

Once that’s done, you can find a Graffiti-covered wall at the hydro plant known as Hydro 16, as well as in Catty Corner. Once you’ve located one of these, you’ll need to walk up to it and interact with it.

To make this easier, we’ve marked both of the Graffiti locations on the map below:

The Hydro 16 landmark is located near Slurpy Swamp, and you can find it by heading along the road east out of that area. The Graffiti will be on a wall around the front, right above the murky water.

Alternatively, you can choose to visit Catty Corner near the southeast corner of the map. Rather than finding the wall directly inside the area, you’ll need to make your way east along the road out of there.

The Graffiti will be on a wall that’s along the road next to a bunker. Interact with it, and this will net you a total of 30,000 XP.

Just be sure to drop directly into either of these areas after you jump from the Battle Bus. However, other players may also have the same idea, so it’s best to be ready for a battle.

That’s all you need to do to complete this weekly challenge in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 7. You can also check out our guide on how to level up the Season 7 Battle Pass as fast as possible.

New “Zero Gravity” POI leaked in Fortnite Season 7

Some new Fortnite leaks have emerged which point to the arrival of a new Zero Gravity POI in Chapter 2, Season 7.

Zero Gravity POI in Fortnite Season 7

Some leaked audio files are pointing at the arrival of a mysterious ‘Zero Gravity’ POI to Fortnite in Chapter 2, Season 7, set to be a brand-new location on the map.

Fortnite Season 7 is already proving to be an exciting new start with all the impressive content that’s being added, including UFOs, an alien invasion, new Exotic weapon locations, and a Superman skin.

There have also been some major map changes, and some leaks have revealed that another new location might be on its way. This new “Zero Gravity” point of interest will reportedly bring a unique feature to the game.

This leak came from notable Fortnite data miner HYPEX, who was digging through the battle royale’s game files. As the name implies, this new POI will reportedly create a “no gravity area.”

It will appear near the center of the new Season 7 map, and audio files in the game’s code give some credibility to the rumor. The data miner discovered unique audio cues that are specific to this new location.

These include sounds for jumping around in Zero Gravity, audio for entering and exiting, and a background sound for when you’re inside the new biome.

While we’ve seen low gravity in Fortnite before, the battle royale has never had a pure Zero Gravity POI in previous seasons. This sounds extremely exciting, but it’s worth keeping in mind that these are currently just leaks.

Epic Games haven’t officially announced another POI for Season 7 yet, so take this information with a grain of salt. If the rumors are true then the new mechanic will provide a unique gameplay experience.

We’ll keep checking for updates regarding this new POI, and will be sure to let you know once there are any new developments. For more Fortnite, stay tuned to Charlie INTEL, and check out how to level up the Season 7 Battle Pass quickly.
