Season seven’s special overtime challenges are live in “Fortnite,” and that means new ways to earn Battle Stars and experience. By collecting more Battle Stars and upping their tier, up to a season maximum of 100, players can earn limited-time rewards like cosmetic outfits and XP boosts. (Collecting 10 Battle Stars will unlock one additional tier.) Weekly challenges are available for anyone who purchases the Season 7 Battle Pass, which can be had for 950 in-game “V-Bucks,” or roughly $10.
Most of the special overtime challenges, which are a new feature to the game, are free for those who didn’t purchase last season’s Battle Pass. According to Epic’s latest patch notes, players who complete 13 of these new post-season “overtime” challenges (from now until Feb. 27) will also receive the full Season 8 Battle Pass for free. As always, remember to finish out the match you’re in once you’ve completed one or more challenges in order to be sure you get credit for them. Additional overtime challenges will go live in the coming days.
