Fortnite season 7 overtime challenge guide: Collect 15 coins in Creative mode

Get creative and collect 15 coins with our Fortnite overtime challenges guide

The first ever Fortnite overtime challenges are now available for players everywhere on all platforms. That’s right, we’re one week past the release of the week 10 challenges but season seven still isn’t over yet. Epic Games doesn’t seem to be ready to show off whatever season eight has in store, releasing it towards the end of this month.

In the meantime, though, you don’t have to sit around twiddling your thumbs in anticipation of all of the upcoming changes in season eight. In fact, you can still complete the challenges from season seven if you haven’t done that yet. But if you are done with those, then you will not want to miss out on these overtime challenges because they come with a special reward we’ve never seen before.

What are overtime challenges?

Like any good football game, these challenges take us into overtime for season seven. While we expected it to end following the release of the week 10 challenges, that isn’t actually the case. Season eight won’t be starting until the end of February. Whether or not this is intentional or Epic had to move things back because of unforeseen circumstances is unclear.

New overtime challenges will be added this weekend and next week in the place of typical weekly challenges. The rewards that you get from completing the overtime challenges mostly include experience, which is good for players who haven’t reached tier 100 in season seven yet.

You can find the overtime challenges by heading to the main Battle Royale lobby and tabbing over to the Challenges tab. If you complete thirteen, you’ll walk away with a free season eight battle pass, a unique reward that we’ve never seen before in Fortnite!

While most of the challenges are pretty standard like dealing damage and finding chests, there is one that is pretty unique and hasn’t been done before. This overtime challenge tasks you with finding and collecting at least 15 hidden coins in Creative mode. This can be really confusing for players who have never dabbled in Creative mode before.

Essentially, Creative mode is the free-for-all Minecraft-esque mode in Fortnite. You have your very own private and persistent island in the game that you can edit and create to your heart’s content, either by yourself or with a group of friends.

This island can then be shared with the rest of the world while you can also check out other players’ worlds. Some of the coolest and best worlds are featured for everyone to see. There are about three to five of these that are featured at one time.

This overtime challenge has you visit any of the featured islands in Creative mode and collect 15 coins in total. As of right now, there are around four featured islands but this could change in the coming days. We have some tips so you can collect the right number of coins and be one step closer to that free Battle Pass.

How to enter Creative mode

First and foremost, you will need to know how to enter Creative mode if you’ve never checked it out before. All you need to do is head to the main Battle Royale lobby and change your mode in the bottom right corner as usual. Select Creative and then enter. This will take you to an island hub of sorts. There will be many stone pillars around you.

The middle one will take you to your specific island while the others are currently featured islands. If you approach one of these rocks, you will see a quick description of the island. Not all of them feature coins so you will want to pay attention to the description. The ones you can get coins from right now are Kate the Cursed’s Battle Royale solos, Dungeon Prison 2, and Move! by Tollmolia.

Those are the three you should focus on. Approach the featured island you wish to jump into and you’ll see a button prompt. Ignore that because all it does is let you enter a specific island code to have that appear there instead. All you need to do to enter that island is run through the rift that is found right by the name of the island.

Dungeon Prison 2 seems a little buggy and confusing so we don’t recommend that one right now. We figured out the parkour segments but it takes a bit of time so we recommend passing on this one right now if you just want to complete this challenge. All three of these featured islands have 10 hidden coins in them but we only need 15 so there is some flexibility.

We do recommend Kate’s BR solos and Move. These two are relatively simple and have 10 coins for you to find. The coins on Kate’s island are a little bit harder to find but it’s a fun trip regardless. Move! is one we recommend to everyone. This featured island is on the far left side. It’s the easiest to collect coins from and there is a little cheat for it as well.

When you load into the Move! featured island, it’s sort of like a Frogger minigame inside Fortnite. There are obstacles and vehicles moving fast, and you have to navigate around them or die. There are 10 coins throughout the level that you can risk your life to collect as you avoid the vehicles. It’s a little tricky but you do have infinite respawns so don’t worry too much about dying.

Tips for collect coins fast in Creative mode

The first four or so coins in this level are extremely easy to get, as seen in our screenshots. However, it is worth noting that we experienced a bug with this featured island when we first entered it where we weren’t able to pick up any of the coins. If this happens to you, press start to open up the main menu and leave the match.

Another weird issue we had across all of the featured islands on console was starting these levels. You aren’t able to easily click on it and it won’t disappear so what you need to do is wait a few seconds then press start to open the main menu and manually select “start game”. If it doesn’t work the first time, try a couple more times and it will disappear from the screen.

You can actually use these strange bugs to your advantage. As we mentioned, the first four coins in Move! are extremely easy to get. The first is directly in front of you, the second takes a simple jump over the vehicles, and the third and fourth are roughly the same. However, you can currently farm these same four coins over and over until you complete this challenge.

All you need to do is collect the easy ones, press start to open up the main menu and leave the match. This will take you to the main Battle Royale lobby screen.

Reenter Creative mode and go back to that same featured island and you’ll be able to collect those same coins once again. We were able to successfully do this twice and complete the challenge in addition to the other coins we found on other islands.

Surviving in Fortnite and securing a Victory Royale takes skill and luck. Getting better at Fortnite requires a knowledge of the playing field and a drive to outlast your opponents, but none of that matters if you aren't picking up the right weapons. Building a loadout that suits your playstyle and managing your inventory as the match progresses is key to snagging a win. You don't want to be caught in a long-range battle against someone on a mountaintop without a solid rifle on hand, and you certainly don't want to find yourself inside a close-quarters building without an SMG or shotgun.

Our guide to the best weapons in Fortnite breaks down rarity types and what they mean, the most effective arms in each weapon category, and tips for how to use them. Chapter 4, Season 2 brought a lengthy list of changes to the Fortnite arsenal -- including new weapons and the return of some fan favorites.

Survival is key in Fortnite, and it all starts by picking the best landing spot. Even if you're an expert player, your likelihood of coming out on top is greatly diminished if you start off on the wrong foot -- whether it be at a barren location with no loot or a hot drop that could lead to a swift death. As part of Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2, there's no shortage of fantastic landing spots, but which one you choose comes down to your skill and preference.

In this guide, we'll show you six of the best Fortnite landing spots for veterans, beginners, and everyone in-between.

Fortnite Guardian Shield: locations and how to use
Guardian Shield in Fortnite.

In January, Epic Games introduced a handful of new changes, including the removal of many Christmas-themed items, and its first new item of 2023: the Guardian Shield, which adds another layer of strategy when used correctly. This new item is tied to a series of in-game challenges, incentivizing players to give it a try. But where can you find the Guardian Shield and how does it work?
Where to find the Guardian Shield

Unfortunately, there isn't a way to guarantee getting a Guardian Shield, as they appear as random drops from chests across the map. With that in mind, we suggest visiting high-traffic areas that contain lots of chests -- preferably spots with Oathbound Chests. These are the large white chests that contain rarer loot and can be found in main hubs that aren't covered in snow, such as The Citadel. Regular chests yield Guardian Shields, too, though. We had luck finding them at Lonely Labs, but other areas contain the Guardian Shield, as well. You can also pick one up from eliminated enemies.
