How Fortnite Season 7’s Battle Star system works

Fortnite’s Season 7 is switching up the Battle Pass. Players can earn Season 7 Battle Stars to purchase the BP cosmetic in the order they want.

For those new to Fortnite, you may not be familiar with Season 7’s Battle Star system. Here’s how players can earn and use Fortnite Season 7 Battle Stars to unlock skins.

During a normal season of Fortnite, players would complete challenges and earn XP to climb Battle Pass tiers. Tiers would corelate with the player’s level, and each tier has specific rewards. However, the Battle Star system makes a drastic change to how players earn seasonal items.

The Fortnite Season 7 Battle Stars are earned by leveling and spent on Battle Pass items. They gives players a bit of freedom to choose which items they want to unlock. Players can buy the level 100 skin right from the start, but they can choose the order in which they get there.

Understanding Battle Star and the Battle Pass

The Season 7 Battle Pass isn’t a tier list. Instead, it’s more like a catalog of items players can choose from. They will have to unlock a certain number of items or reach a certain level before they can move to different tiers of the catalog. But they are still able to choose how they get to that next tier.

The easiest way to get to the next tier is by purchasing the required number of items using Battle Stars. These are a form of currency that a player earns every time they level up. With each level, a player will earn five Battle Stars. They can then use these stars to purchase any of the Battle Pass cosmetics available to them.

Players can still purchase levels using V-Bucks, and in return they will be rewarded with five Battle Stars for every level they purchase. Each level costs 150 V-Bucks. This won’t auto unlock items like in the past, but will reward players with Battle Stars to spend.

With all of the great cosmetic items in Fortnite Season 7’s Battle Pass, it’s hard to choose what to buy first. Do you save up your stars until you reach a certain level, or do you spend them as you earn them? There’s plenty of time to earn enough stars to buy every item in the Battle Pass, so get out there and start earning those stars.

Where to find the Grab-itron in Fortnite

Here’s where you can find the Grab-itron in Fortnite to fight your opponents with gravity. Pick one up before one picks up you!

The newest weapon to come to Fortnite is a gravity-defying portable UFO. Here’s where to find the Grab-itron in Fortnite.

When Fortnite Season 7 started, players were having a blast with the UFO’s many tools and weaponry. The Saucer Cannon would rain down plasma balls to decimate opponents. And the tractor beam could pick up players and throw them long distances.

The tractor beam could also be used to pick up large objects like boulders, cars, and semi-trucks. These objects could be hurled at enemy players, but hitting them required accuracy and timing that most players might not have. Now, with the Grab-itron in Fortnite, hitting opponents with cars is a whole lot easier.

This piece of IO Tech is extremely powerful if players can get their hands on it. Luckily, it’s not too hard to find. The Grab-itron can be found in chests all around the map. But, being an Alien weapon, it’s easier found inside chests on the Mothership or on Abductors.

The Grab-itron has a multitude of uses starting with the obvious. You can now pick up heavy objects and fling them at opponents with better accuracy. However, you can also use the heavy objects as a shield to protect you from incoming fire.

This weapon is also a great counter to rockets and explosives. Incoming rockets can be grabbed out of the air and thrown back at players. The same goes for grenades, firefly jars, and recon scanners. Don’t want your builds getting destroyed? Just throw the hazards back where they came from.

Clark Kent aka Superman has finally made his way into Fortnite following various other DC characters. Here’s how players can get the Superman skin in Fortnite Season 7.

Superman is part of the Fortnite Season 7 Battle Pass which means players will have to work a little bit to get him. Luckily, players who have an active Fortnite Crew subscription will already have access to this season’s Battle Pass.

However, he is easier to unlock than you’d think. Since Fortnite Season 7 features the return of the Battle Star system, players only need to earn enough stars to unlock him. The Battle Star system allows players to unlock Battle Pass items in the order that they want. While other skins can be unlocked in a timely manner, Superman is locked behind a countdown timer and quests.

Superman set and costs

August 12 is almost here which is when the Superman quests are set to go live in Fortnite. While the rest of the Battle Pass items for Season 7 were purchased with Battle Stars, all of the Superman cosmetics are unlocked via challenges.

As seen below, Superman’s entire set consists of 11 different pieces. Like the Tony Stark skin, Clark Kent is the base skin players will need to unlock. Afterward, they can unlock different styles including the Superman costume. The second Superman style is called Shadow Superman.

There are nine quests that players will have to complete to unlock all of the Superman cosmetics. These quests aren’t in-game yet, but they have been leaked early by HYPEX on Twitter. The leak also reveals that Clark Kent, Armored Batman, and Beast Boy will be coming to Fortnite as NPCs.

While players have to wait until August to claim their Superman cosmetics, its exciting to see another one of DCs main heroes make it into Fortnite. With the addition of The Flash, Batman, and Aquaman, it was only a matter of time before Superman made it onto the roster.
