It’s the final week of challenges for Fortnite Season 9. With giant monsters and robots on the loose around the map, this final week of challenges is your last chance to hit Battle Pass Tier 100 or nab those last few Fortbytes before the season finale hits. As usual, here’s our guide to the last week of challenges, which should make snagging that Tier 100 skin a breeze.
Fortnite: Season 9 Week 10 Challenge Guide
Use an Air Strike in different matches (3)
The Air Strike is a recently added weapon that brings a whole lot of firepower in a small package. Taking the form of a grenade, tossing this weapon will direct a massive airstrike to the area where this weapon lands. The trickiest part of this challenge is actually finding an Air Strike; their Legendary rarity means they can be pretty hard to find. We recommend looking for them in Supply Drops or in high traffic areas like Neo Tilted. Use one in three different matches to finish the challenge.
Damage opponents with shotguns (500)
We’re getting up close and personal again with yet another shotgun challenge. This time, you’ll be using shotguns to deal 500 damage to enemies. We recommend using this opportunity to take the new full-auto Drum Shotgun for a spin; it’s got pretty horrible accuracy, but can deal devastating damage the closer you get.
Search ammo boxes in a single match (7)
This one can be a bit of a tall order, as ammo boxes can sometimes be hard to find. We recommend heading to a larger named location such as Neo Tilted, where ammo boxes are more plentiful. You’ll need to find and open 7 of them over the course of a single match to mark off this challenge.
Visit different public service announcement signs (5)
These recently added Public Service announcement signs can be found in several locations around the map: Neo Tilted, Mega Mall, and Pressure Plant. Each location is home to several of the signs, so you should have little trouble finding the five needed to complete the challenge. They’re so plentiful that you can even finish this one in a single location.
This multi-tiered harvesting challenge has you nabbing resources from different landmarks around the map. Here’s the order:
- Stage 1: Collect wood from a Pirate Ship or a Viking Ship (100)
Most players are probably familiar with these two landmarks; the Pirate Ship sits at anchor in Lazy Lagoon, and the Viking Ship can be found at the Viking Village just south of Snobby Shores.
- Stage 2: Collect stone from a Fork Knife or an Umbrella (100)
The Fork Knife and Umbrella are easiest viewed from the air; you’ll see them in the form of some oddly shaped trenches outside of Fatal Fields and east of Pleasant Park. Drop into these trenches and start mining the rocks you find to collect the required amount of stone.
- Stage 3: Collect metal from a Robot Factory (100)
Finally, head to the Robot Factory at Pressure Plant to mine the final resource required, 100 metal. If you’re having trouble pinpointing these locations, check out the map below.
Eliminate opponents in Pleasant Park or Paradise Palms (3)
This elimination challenge is relatively straightforward; take out three enemies in either of the above locations to complete it. As per usual, Team Rumble matches are the best way to finish any elimination-based challenges.
Damage opponents with a pickaxe (200)
This final challenge is another up-close battle, this one tasking you with whacking your opponents with a pickaxe. You probably won’t get any kills and you’ll more than likely die a few times before finishing, but the challenge will be complete once you hit 200 damage.
Fortnite: Season 9 Week 9 Challenge Guide
Use a Chug Jug or Chug Splash in different matches (3)
Most players are probably familiar with the massive Chug Jug by now; this keg-sized jar of Shield Juice crops up fairly frequently in chests and other drops. The Chug Splash is newer, however, and takes the form of a throwable shield six-pack you can use to heal teammates. Of the two items, Chug Splashes seem to spawn with a bit more frequency; once you find one, simply toss it to mark it as “used” for the challenge. Do so in three different matches to finish this one off.
Visit a solar array in the jungle, desert, and snow
It’s time for another scavenger hunt, and this one has you seeking out different solar arrays scattered across the map’s biomes. You’ll need to find a solar array such as the one above in the jungle, desert, and snow biomes. For the jungle, search atop a low hill just east of the hot springs area. For the desert, look on a mesa between Paradise Palms and John Wick’s house. The snow array is the easiest to spot: it takes the form of a massive field of panels just outside the hangars at Frosty Flights. The exact locations of each set of panels are marked on the map below.
This weapon rarity challenge has multiple stages. Essentially, you’ll need to get an elimination with each weapon rarity in ascending order, starting at Common and ending on the Epic tier. The lower tiers of this challenge are actually a bit harder; since Common rarity weapons do less damage, it can be more difficult to get kills with them. We recommend searching out shotguns for this challenge so you can knock out opponents with their overwhelming fire rates and pellet spread, and we also recommend taking this on in a Team Rumble match so you can use the respawns to your advantage.
Deal headshot damage (500)
You’ll be following the advice of Thanos and aiming for the head in this damage dealing challenge. You’ll need to accumulate 500 points of headshot damage, which is actually a pretty tall order. We recommend grabbing a shotgun and aiming high: the pellet spread means you can usually snag a fair bit of headshot damage with each shot.
Search chests at Lazy Lagoon or Happy Hamlet
Both locations for this challenge have a pretty high rate of chest spawns, so you shouldn’t have too much of a problem finding chests to pop open. Head for whichever location is farthest from the flight path of the Battle Bus. Usually this means you’ll have fewer opponents to deal with while you search. Once you’ve opened seven chests, this challenge will be all wrapped up.
Eliminate opponents in different named locations (5)
Another classic elimination challenge, this one should be easy enough to finish in a match of Team Rumble. The matches should progress through a few different named locations as the storm circle closes, so you should be able to hit the 5 different locations required over the course of a couple matches.
Deal damage to an opponent within 10s of landing from a Volcano Vent
This challenge is a bit of a Season 8 throwback. Head up to the northeastern area of the map, in the jungles surrounding the volcano. There, you’ll find plenty of volcano vents erupting from the ground. The trick is then finding an opponent to take down. If you’re lucky, you can drop into a Team Rumble match that centers around the volcano area, which means you’ll have plenty of enemies in the area to hunt down. Launch into the air, and as soon as you land you’ll have 10 seconds to deal as much damage as possible to enemies. 10 seconds is actually longer than you might think, so take your time and don’t freak out and spray your shots wildly. You should be able to meet the required damage threshold with just a few launches.
Fortnite: Season 9 Week 8 Challenge Guide
Apply Shields (400)
We hope you’ve worked up a thirst, because you’ll be slurping down a lot of Shield Potions to complete the first challenge of the week. You’ll need to absorb 400 points of shield via whatever means necessary, whether it be munching mushrooms or downing potions. 400 shields is a lot, meaning you’ll essentially have to charge your shields to full four times to complete the challenge.
Visit different clocks (3)
Time to go for a scavenger hunt. There are a lot of clocks around the Fortnite map, but you’ll need to find three very particular timepieces to finish this challenge.
- Clock 1: Neo Tilted
The first clock is located in the south half of Neo-Tilted, where the old clock tower used to stand. It’s hard to miss: just look for the giant floating digital numbers to track it down. You’ll have to either land atop the clock or build your way up to it to mark it as visited.
- Clock 2: Junk Junction
Clock number 2 is tucked away amongst the piles of debris in Junk Junction. You’ll be able to find it right next to the main entrance gate. This one should actually be familiar: it’s the ruined remnants of the old Tilted Towers clock tower.
- Clock 3: Desert Mesa
The final clock is a bit trickier to track down. Drop in above the desert area, and you’ll be able to see it as you come down: it’s a giant sundial made of ruined cars, sitting atop a tall mesa. Simply land atop the sundial and you’ll have completed the challenge. If you’re having trouble tracking down the clocks, check the map below for their exact locations:
Eliminate opponents at Snobby Shores or Mega Mall (7)
Eliminating seven opponents is a tall order. We highly recommend doing this challenge in a map of Team Rumble so that it doesn’t take you ages to finish. The task itself is fairly simple: take out enemies in either of the above locations. Of the two, Mega Mall tends to be more high traffic, so it should be easier to get eliminations there.
Damage opponents with Assault Rifles (500)
Whatever your preference may be, simply grab your favorite assault rifle and get to work. We like the newly unvaulted Burst Rifle for this challenge; if only for the nostalgia factor. Once you’ve racked up 500 points of damage total, you’ll have finished the challenge.
The landing challenge seems to be pretty popular this season, so you should probably know the drill by now. Simply drop in at the following locations in this order:
- Stage 1: Land at Paradise Palms
- Stage 2: Land at Neo Tilted
- Stage 3: Land at Mega Mall
- Stage 4: Land at Pleasant Park
- Stage 5: Land at Junk Junction
Use a volcano vent, air vent, and a zipline in a single match
This one might sound easier than it is. To get to all of these locations in a single match, you’ll have to cover some serious ground… or, simply head to the area around Lonely Lodge and Mega Mall, where you’ll be able to find all of these items gathered fairly close together. Mega Mall is home to plenty of air vents waiting to send you skyward. Once you’ve hit one, head north to Lonely Lodge to hitch a ride on a zipline, then delve into the depths of the jungle and find your way to a volcano vent to finish the challenge off.
Eliminations outside named locations (5)
Yet more eliminations await in this week’s final challenge. Take down five opponents anywhere that isn’t a named location. Be careful, as the official “areas” named locations take up can extend a bit further than you might realize. Make sure you’ve put some good distance between yourself and any nearby settlements to be sure your kills will count.
Fortnite: Season 9 Week 7 Challenge Guide
Search chests at Neo Tilted or Junk Junction (7)
Alright, you know the drill for this one. Head to one of the two locations above and search 7 chests to complete the challenge. Of the two locations, Neo Tilted has way more chest, but it’s also more dangerous. If you want to play it on the safer side, we recommend heading to Junk Junction.
Search ammo boxes in different named locations (7)
These little green ammo boxes are the subject of this week’s second challenge. You’ll have to find and open seven of these boxes, but the catch is you’ll have to do so in seven different named locations to net your Battle Stars. This means you’ll probably be completing this challenge over the course of several matches, or you could snag a vehicle and try to get it done in one go.
Suppressed weapon eliminations (3)
First thing’s first: you’ll need to find a suppressed weapon. We recommend the Suppressed Pistol. It’s easy to find, and capable of rapid fire, so it should be easy enough to use this weapon to snag those three eliminations.
Deal damage to opponents while riding a vehicle (200)
For this challenge, we highly suggest getting your hands on a Driftboard. It’s the only vehicle that allows you to drive and shoot at the same time, making it easy to get to the 200 damage required to complete the challenge.
For this standard-issue location challenge you’ll have to get to multiple locations over the course of a single match. Here’s the order:
- Stage 1: Visit The Block and Loot Lake in a single match
- Stage 2: Visit Fatal Fields and Neo Tilted in a single match
- Stage 3: Visit Snobby Shores and Mega Mall in a single match
Search a chest, vending machine, and campfire in a single match
You’ll have to luck out a bit to get this one finished. While chests and campfires are easy enough to find, Vending Machines tend to be a bit harder to track down. Look for them in Named Locations; we’ve found they spawn pretty consistently around Loot Lake and Paradise Palms.
Eliminations from 5m or less (3)
Time to get up close and personal. Using a Combat Shotgun should make short work of this challenge: just get right up in your opponents face before you blast them. Do this three times, and you’ll have completed Week 7.
Fortnite: Season 9 Week 6 Challenge Guide
Here’s the order for this week’s landing challenge. You know the drill: simply drop in at each of the locations in order to mark it off the list.
- Stage 1: Land at Lucky Landing.
- Stage 2: Land at Loot Lake.
- Stage 3: Land at Shifty Shafts.
- Stage 4: Land at Frosty Flights.
- Stage 5: Land at Haunted Hills.
Deal damage with SMGs to opponents (500)
This week’s main damage-dealing challenge puts the spotlight on SMGs. You’re tasked with using any SMG to deal 500 cumulative damage to your opponents, which is probably easiest to do in a Team Rumble match. We personally like the new Burst SMG for this challenge; it’s accurate and capable of doing some devastating damage, which makes this challenge that much easier.
Hot Spot Challenges
A new feature to Battle Royale, you may have noticed Hot Spots appearing on the minimap in recent weeks. These locations are noted by a yellow highlighted name, and spawn flying Loot Carriers that were the subject of one of the season’s earlier challenges. This is a multi-stage challenge that has you heading to Hot Spots to search out certain items. Here’s what you’ll need to do to finish this one:
- Stage 1: Search chests at a Hot Spot (3)
- Stage 2: Search ammo boxes at a Hot Spot (3)
- Stage 3: Elimination at a Hot Spot (1)
Deal damage to a vehicle driven by an opponent (200)
Just like it says in the name, you’ll want to keep a sharp eye out for any vehicles your opponents might be using. Usually, you’ll be able to hear them before you see them. Since most are fairly slow and make for easy targets, you can potentially get this challenge done in a single burst of gunfire.
Use a Storm Flip in different matches (3)
The Storm Flip is a newly added item with a pretty interesting function. Looking like some kind of ethereal molotov, throwing the Storm Flip will do something different depending on where you use it. If you use it while inside the storm, it’ll create a temporary bubble that protects you from taking damage.
Using it outside of the storm does the exact opposite: it essentially creates a mini-storm, damaging anyone unlucky enough to be caught inside. This challenge tasks you with using this new item in three different matches; that said, the Storm Flips are fairly difficult to find, so you’ll probably have to do a lot of searching to get your hands on one.
Use different vehicles in a single match (2)
Whether it be a Driftboard, Baller, or Quad Crasher, you’ll need to hop on two different vehicles over the course of a single match to mark off this challenge. Keep an eye out for the yellow RVs scattered across the map, like the one pictured above. Usually, they spawn a few different vehicles nearby, such as the Driftboards and the Quadcrasher pictures. If you find one, it’s easy enough to quickly hop in the two different vehicles.
Eliminate opponents at The Block or Fatal Fields (3)
Finally, a standard elimination challenge rounds off Week 6. Take out 3 opponents at either The Block or Fatal Fields, and you’ll be finished with this week’s challenge set.
Fortnite: Season 9 Week 5 Challenge Guide
Deal damage to opponents with Grenades, Dynamite, or Stink Bombs (200)
This explosive challenge is a little tricky; try to throw your grenades at clusters of enemies for maximum effect, and throw as many grenades as possible to basically carpet-bomb the area and prevent any escape. We recommend steering away from Dynamite for this one; its long fuse gives enemies plenty of time to escape before it explodes.
Search chests at Salty Springs or Frosty Flights (7)
The classic chest search is back. This time, head over to Salty Springs or Frosty Flights and pop open 7 chests to finish this one. We recommend Frosty Flights, as there are a ton of chest spawns and it’s usually less popular with enemies.
Eliminate an opponent in different matches (5)
Take out five enemies to finish this one; the catch is you’ll have to do so in separate matches, so this one may take a bit longer to complete than some of this week’s other challenges.
Race Track Challenge
One of this week’s more interesting challenges, you’ll be heading out to the races for this one. In the case of all tracks, you merely need to finish a single lap to mark off the challenge. Get ready at the track’s starting line, then move through the glowing checkpoints in order to finish the lap.
- Stage 1: Complete a lap of a desert race track
This one shouldn’t be too hard to find, as the track in question is easily visible on the map north of Paradise Palms. Vehicles here tend to be a bit sparse though; keep an eye out for Driftboard and Quad Crasher spawns near the buildings on the outskirts of the track.
Stage 2: Complete a lap of a snowy race track
Players might be familiar with this track from a similar challenge in Season 8. It’s located just on the outskirts to the northwest of Happy Hamlet. One important detail: you’ll need a Baller to finish this track, as one of the checkpoints is floating in midair. A few usually spawn at the track’s starting line.
Stage 3: Complete a lap of a grasslands race track
The final track is in the map’s northern area, midway between Junk Junction and The Block. It’s pretty easy to spot, with lots of brightly colored cones and barriers surrounding the track. Vehicle spawns here are also plentiful; you should easily be able to find a Quad Crasher that you can use to finish the challenge.
If you’re having trouble finding the race tracks, check out the map below for their exact locations:
Place trap items in different matches (5)
Like this week’s elimination challenge, you might find this challenge taking longer as you’ll have to do it over the course of five matches. As far as the trap items, any will do, whether it be a campfire or a damage trap. Traps tend to be easier to find in Team Rumble games, where they are guaranteed to spawn in Supply Drops.
Visit different Wind Turbines in a single match (5)
Another of this week’s location challenges, you’ll want to head to the area surrounding Pleasant Park. Once there, you should have no problem spotting the turbines in question, as they dot the hillsides in the surrounding area. You’ll need to visit five of these turbines in the same match to complete this challenge, so put on your running shoes and get moving.
The exact locations of the turbines are marked on the map below:
Eliminations at Sky Platforms (3)
This final challenge takes us back to the Sky Platforms, which were already the subject of a challenge earlier in the season. The best way to get the three required eliminations is in a match of Team Rumble. With any luck, the match will end up centering on an area with a Sky Platform, and enemies will be plentiful and easy to eliminate.
The map below shows the locations of all Sky Platforms:
Fortnite: Season 9 Week 4 Challenge Guide
Deal damage with Sniper Rifles to opponents (500)
The week’s first challenge will be putting your marksmanship skills to the test. You’ll need to do a cumulative 500 damage to opponents using any Sniper, and since most do high damage per shot, you’ll probably only need a few dead-on shots to get this one done. We recommend the newly unvaulted Semi-Auto Sniper for this task; though it does a bit less damage than other rifles, its high rate of fire makes it easy to land multiple shots on an opponent.
Dancing Signs Challenge
Definitely this week’s hardest challenge, you’re going on a multi-stage, riddle solving scavenger hunt.
- Stage 1: Dance inside a holographic Tomato head
The first stage of the challenge will take you to Mega Mall, where you’ll see the giant holographic tomato head in question. Here’s the catch: it’s floating over empty space, so you’ll need to build your way over to it in order to dance inside the hologram. Be careful: if you destroy the holograms emitter, the hologram disappears and you’ll need to try again in a different round.
- Stage 2: Dance inside a holographic Durr Burger head
The Durr Burger head is hard to miss: it’s one of the central landmarks in Neo-Tilted. Getting atop this building can be difficult, as it’s one of the taller ones in Neo-Tilted. The easiest way to get inside the hologram and bust a move is to drop directly on top of it, and land on the emitter. Once again, destroying the emitter will also destroy the hologram.
- Stage 3: Dance on top of a giant dumpling head
No hologram required for this final task. Simply head down to Lucky Landing, where you’ll see this giant dumpling rotating atop a building. Land on it or build your way to the top and dance your heart out to complete this challenge. If you’re having trouble pinning down these landmarks, check out their locations on the map below.
Legendary weapon eliminations (3)
You’ll have to hunt down a Legendary weapon to finish this challenge; make sure to look for that distinctive orange glow. Like all elimination challenges, this should be easiest to complete in a match of Team Rumble. That rule goes double for this challenge: loot crate airdrops are more plentiful in Team Rumble, and they have a higher chance of containing Legendary loot.
Destroy a Loot Carrier in different matches
You may have noticed these little drones floating above certain areas of the map in recent weeks. These are Loot Carriers, and shooting them down will make them drop their precious cargo for you to claim. To find them, look for named locations on the map that are highlighted with gold lettering. Loot Carriers spawn in the highlighted areas only, and you’ll need to shoot down 3 carriers in separate matches to finish this challenge.
Yet another classic landing challenge, here’s the order for this one:
- Stage 1: Land at Polar Peak.
- Stage 2: Land at Lazy Lagoon.
- Stage 3: Land at Salty Springs.
- Stage 4: Land at The Block.
- Stage 5: Land at Lonely Lodge.
Visit different named locations in a single match (5)
Finally, you’ll need to cover a lot of ground for this week’s last challenge. Five locations in one match is a tall order, but here are a few tips to make this one easier. First, we recommend taking this on in a Team Rumble match. Longer match times and the ability to respawn make it easier to visit multiple locations in one match. Also, try landing near the center of the map. Named locations are closer together in that area, making it easier to move between them.
Fortnite: Season 9 Week 3 Challenge Guide
This is a multi-stage challenge that will have you completing certain tasks with different vehicles. Here’s the order:
- Stage 1: Land a trick with a Driftboard
The easiest way to finish this task is to get some airtime and start spinning. The simplest trick to land is a 180 or a 360, so try for those to get this stage of the challenge done quickly.
- Stage 2: Get 3s of airtime with a Quadcrasher
There’s a catch to this challenge: you can’t use Volcano Vents or Slipstreams to get that airtime. It needs to be done by launching off a ramp of some kind. We recommend heading to the volcano and launching off the top to get plenty of air.
- Stage 3: Destroy opponent structures with a vehicle (3)
Finally, though you can technically use any vehicle, we recommend a Quadcrasher again for this one. In Team Rumble matches, enemy forts tend to get huge and intricate. Point yourself towards one and ram it to finish off this set of challenges.
Search chests at Lonely Lodge or Polar Peak (7)
The classic chest search is an old standby. Head over to one or both of the above locations and pop open 7 chests to complete this challenge. We recommend Polar Peak, as it tends to have way more chest spawns than the Lodge.
Deal damage to an opponent within 10s after using a Slipstream (200)
Once again, this challenge is ideally finished in Team Rumble. If you’re lucky, the storm will close in around an area that has a Slipstream passing through; if that’s the case, you can simply hop in and out of the Slipstream at will and easily find opponents to take out. If not, you’ll simply need to ride the Slipstream and keep your eyes peeled for opponents below. As you’ll need to do 200 total damage, that probably means taking down more than one opponent.
Another multi-stage challenge, this one tasks you with visiting multiple locations over the course of a single match. Here’s the order:
- Stage 1: Visit Happy Hamlet and Shifty Shafts in a single match.
- Stage 2: Visit Sunny Steps and Dusty Divot in a single match.
- Stage 3: Visit Salty Springs and Haunted Hills in a single match.
Throw the Flying Disc toy and catch it before it lands
This is one of the week’s trickier challenges. First, you’ll need to actually unlock the Flying Disc by getting the Battle Pass Tier 35. Once you’ve done so, try to get atop an elevated position. Then, instead of tossing the disc and running after it, simply throw the disc straight up. It should come straight back down, and all you need to do is position yourself underneath it to catch it.
Explosive weapon eliminations (3)
Yet another elimination challenge, grab any explosive weapon and take out opponents to finish this one off. We recommend a Rocket Launcher, but anything from Dynamite to Grenades will do the trick. If you’re lucky, you can hit a cluster of opponents and finish this challenge with a single explosion.
Deal damage with different weapons in a single match (5)
You’ll have to stock up on guns to finish this challenge. It doesn’t matter what weapons you take, just so long as they’re different guns. This is easiest to complete in Team Rumble, but there’s a catch. You only have four available inventory slots in that mode, so you’ll have to damage an opponent and then pick up a new weapon at least once to finish the challenge. Otherwise, simply fill your inventory with different weapons and cycle between them to finish the challenge easily.
Fortnite: Season 9 Week 2 Challenge Guide
Launch off Air Vents in different matches (5)
Continuing a theme from last week, this challenge will introduce you to one of Season 9’s new mechanics. Air Vents can be found in any of the game’s new futuristic locations, such as Mega Mall or Neo-Tilted. Air Vents, pictured above, essentially act as a mini jump pad. Stepping on one will send you bouncing skyward. Jump on an air vent in 5 different matches to complete this challenge.
The good old reliable landing challenge makes a return. Drop in at the following locations in this order to finish this challenge.
- Stage 1: Land at Snobby Shores.
- Stage 2: Land at Fatal Fields.
- Stage 3: Land at Sunny Steps.
- Stage 4: Land at Dusty Divot.
- Stage 5: Land at Happy Hamlet.
Eliminate opponents at Sunny Steps or Shifty Shafts (3)
Another straightforward and classic challenge, this one will have you taking out opponents at either Sunny Steps or Shifty Shafts. Neither location tends to be particularly high traffic; that said, we recommend jumping into a Team Rumble match to work on this challenge. Depending on where the fighting is centered, it’s possible to complete this challenge in a single match.
Deal damage with Pistols to opponents (500)
This damage dealing challenge will have you using Pistols. While you can use any Pistol to finish the challenge, we recommend either the Hand Cannon or Dual Pistols to do so. Both of these weapons deal much higher damage than the game’s other pistols, so it will be much easier to handle this challenge by using one or the other. You’ll have to deal 500 damage total to complete it.
Visit an oversized phone, a big piano, and a giant dancing fish trophy
One of this week’s more interesting challenges, you’ll be heading to some pretty unusual landmarks around the Battle Royale map.
Some players will remember the giant phones from one of last season’s challenges. They’re in two locations: a grove of trees between Lazy Lagoon and The Block, and atop a hill to the north of Lucky Landing.
The piano may also be familiar, as it was involved in a Season 7 challenge. You’ll find it along the coastline to the south of Lonely Lodge.
Finally, the fish trophy is a new one. You’ll need to head to an unmarked house between Mega Mall and Dusty Divot, where you’ll find it sticking out of the roof. Check out the map below for the exact locations:
Search a Chest in different named locations in a single match (3)
A variation on the classic chest searching challenge, you’ll need to put on your hiking shoes for this one. You’ll be searching three chests, but the catch is that they need to be in different locations to count towards the challenge, and you’ll need to do so in a single match. Try to land in an area where locations are clustered together; the map’s central area is probably your best bet.
Ranged Elimination Challenge
Polish off your sniper rifles, because you’ll need to go long for this challenge. It’s hard to gauge distance for challenges like this, but as a general rule, the further the better.
- Stage 1: Eliminate an opponent from at least 50m away.
- Stage 2: Eliminate an opponent from at least 75m away.
- Stage 3: Eliminate an opponent from at least 100m away.
Fortnite: Season 9 Week 1 Challenge Guide
The Slipstream challenge is a great introduction to one of Season 9’s new mechanics. It’s a two-parter:
- Stage 1: Ride the slipstream around Neo-Tilted.
- Stage 2: Ride the slipstream around Mega Mall.
To get to the Slipstream in question, you’ll want to look for the giant purple rings floating around the locations in question. These rings contain guided air currents that allow you to quickly traverse between locations simply by jumping into them. To ride the Slipstream, you can find various “stations” that will allow you to jump into the current and go for a ride. The challenge should mark as complete as soon as you enter the Slipstream.
Visit all Sky Platforms (7)
Another intro to one of Season 9’s new mechanics, the Sky Platforms are exactly what their name implies. These floating research stations are scattered across the map, held aloft by four giant turbines. You can also use these turbines to boost you skyward and get to the top of the platforms themselves. As soon as you set foot atop the platform, you’ll see it marked as “visited.” There are seven platforms you’ll need to visit to complete the challenge. Here’s a map to their locations:
Deal damage to opponents within 10 seconds of using a Shadow Bomb (200)
This challenge can be harder than it seems at first. One of the hardest parts is finding a Shadow Bomb in the first place, as they tend to be rare items. Once you do, use the Shadow Bomb to enter your spectral form, then hop out to attack any nearby enemies and start dealing damage. This one is easiest to complete in a match of Team Rumble, where you can use a Shadow Bomb in crowds and find easy targets to deal damage to.
Pick up a Legendary item in different matches (5)
Unlike the previous challenge, this one sounds harder than it is. Any legendary item will do, from Chug Jugs to Assault Rifles to the elusive Bush camo. Just look for the orange glow, and snag the item as soon as you see it. You can also use vending machines to grab legendaries, if you can find one. There’s usually a Legendary vending machine that spawns near Loot Lake, next to the entrance to the excavation pit.
Search chests at Lucky Landing or Loot Lake (7)
A classic chest search, you’ll need to head to either Loot Lake or Lucky Landing and search 7 chests to complete the challenge. Which location you choose is up to you: Lucky tends to be less crowded, but chests aren’t as plentiful as they are at Loot Lake.
Scoped Weapon Eliminations (3)
Whether it be a Sniper Rifle or Scoped Assault Rifle, you simply need to grab a weapon with a scope on it and pick off three opponents to mark this challenge as complete.
Deal damage at certain heights
This final challenge is probably the hardest of the week. It has a few tiers:
- Stage 1: Deal damage to opponents from at least two stories above (300)
- Stage 2: Deal damage to opponents from at least four stories above (200)
- Stage 3: Deal damage to opponents from at least six stories above (100)
The hardest part of this challenge is judging your height. A safe rule of thumb is the higher the better, and if you can, use nearby buildings to estimate how high up you are. This is easiest to complete by building your own structures, so you’ll want to gather plenty of supplies for this one. As usual, any elimination challenge is easiest to complete in a Team Rumble match.
