Wrapping up Season 7

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 7 will be wrapping up starting September 9, 2021 with the Bargin Bin Wild Week, with discounted items from NPCs and Vending Machines.

There will also be Legendary Quests for spending Gold Bars.

An important note for players is that all Battle Stars, Gold Bars, and Alien Artifacts must be spent before Operation: Sky Fire, or they will be lost when the Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 8 starts.

Superman Quests must also be finished by that time.

Where Will The Mothership Crash?

Leaks suggest that the Mothership will be crashing at Misty Meadows.

Given the size of the ship, Misty Meadows probably won't survive the aftermath.

It is also possible that the Mothership will split into several pieces, with multiple POIs affected by its fall to the earth.

As per the Fortnite weekly challenges, we've been placing warning signs at almost every major POI in Fortnite. So there's a chance that more than one POI may be affected by the falling debris.
