[Update: Epic has confirmed reports of issues with a Hard-difficulty Week 6 challenge, which asks you to deal damage with different weapons in a single match. After launching an investigation into the issue, it has identified that the problem occurs only in modes where respawns are allowed. It plans to fix this in a future update, but if you’re eager to complete the challenge now, you’ll have to do so in a mode without respawns.]
If you’re new to this, firstly, hello, how’s it going? What have you been up to? Secondly, let’s get you up to speed on how it all works. Challenge are split into two categories, with the first being available to any and all Fortnite players, while the second is exclusive to players that have spent V-Bucks to get the premium version of the pass. Naturally, you’ll still be able to get a few Battle Stars by doing the free challenges, but if you really want to get those cosmetic unlocks faster, the premium pass is the way to go.
In the free section this week, players will need to search fortnite v bucks generator seven ammo boxes in different named locations (which you should be very used to doing now), hunt down seven Chilly Gnomes, and take out enemies in either Lucky Landing or Tilted Towers.
Meanwhile, in the paid Battle Pass section, first up is a multi-stage challenge that begins with you visiting Polar Peaks and Tilted Towers in a single match. With that done, you’ll get two more locations to visit in the second stage, and then again in the third.
After that you’ll need to get yourself the Ice Puck emote (unlocked at Tier 28 in the Battle Pass), find an icy surface, and use the emote to send that bad boy off into the distance. There’s also another multi-stager that involves doing damage using SMGs and, after that’s done, you’ll find two further stages that task you with dishing out pain using specific weapons.
