Fortnite Week 7 Challenges not Working for Some Players [UPDATED]

Fortnite Week 7 Challenges not Working for Some Players [UPDATED]

Update: All lights are green!

[Update, April 5 at 12:50 p.m. ET]: Epic's given the Week 7 Challenges the All Clear. Go nuts!

Fortnite's Week 7 Challenges are live, but some players are complaining their Challenges haven't been unlocked. Epic has identified the problem and is working to fix it as quickly as possible.

"Some players may not see their Week 7 Challenges unlocked," Epic announced on its official status page for Fortnite's servers. "We have identified the issue and are working on a fix." At the time of this writing, the Game Services sub-category for Fortnite is at a yellow "Degraded," and the Stats and Leaderboards are "Under Maintenance."

Why not go for a nice glide in the country while you wait? Mind the stray bullets.

Unsurprisingly, the Fortnite subreddit is lit up with discussion about the problem. While the Challenges seem to gradually be re-appearing for some players, others are still in the dark. If you ever wanted to see a bunch of jokes about "'EPIC' fails" collected in one area, head over and look for yourself. It's a once-in-a-lifetime phenomenon, I guarantee it.

If you're one of the lucky ducks who aren't bogged down with server problems, you owe it to yourself to read our guide for Fortnite's Week 7 Challenges. We also invite you to take a look at our general hints, tips, and guides for Fortnite Battle Royale.
