Once again, Fortnite‘s Battle Pass challenges have been data-mined ahead of the weekly reset on Tuesday, giving the more enterprising members of the player base plenty of time to prepare themselves for obtaining those precious Battle Stars.
Challenges are available to complete for all owners of Season 4’s superhero-themed Battle Pass, and offer easily the best method of obtaining Battle Stars and receiving tier-based cosmetic rewards. With this week we have passed the halfway mark of Season 4, meaning Fortnite players have just over 4 weeks left to progress to Tier 100 and unlock the highly sought-after Omega skin.
Coming from FortniteTracker, the image above lists all of the challenges for the week. It looks like the standard “Search 7 chests” and “Eliminate opponents” are making a return, so Loot Lake and Retail Row will likely be extremely busy for at least the next 7 days. Meanwhile, the “Search between” challenge this week seems to be pointing to somewhere close to Greasy Grove.
Also making a return are the weapon-specific challenges, requiring players to rack up kills with the SMG and deal damage with the Shotguns. These should be pretty straightforward (especially given that shotguns are arguably the most widely-used weapons on the game), though it might be wise to jump into the more hectic 20vs20 and Blitz modes to speed things up a bit.
The most interesting challenge this week is undoubtedly the one requiring players to spray paint over 7 different posters dotted around the map. Epic Games usually throw in at least one unique map-changing challenge – such as when they added floating rings for a skydiving challenge – requiring players to get out there and explore more of the island’s nooks and crannies.
Finally, perhaps the hardest challenge this week is to search 3 Supply Drops. This one sounds pretty simple, but Supply Drops are pretty rare in the regular game mode. It’d be a wise move to play Blitz where drops are much more common, or 20vs20 where they spawn in clusters of 5 – though even in these game modes, the areas surrounding the drops are often hotly contested.
All in all, it’s a very achievable week of challenges. Most players should be able to complete Week 6 without much trouble, getting them well on the way to maxing out the Battle Pass with plenty of time to spare before the end of Season 4.
Fortnite Battle Royale is free to play on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Mobile.
