Fortnite Challenges Of Week 6: Mountain Peaks, "Search Between," And More
Week 6 will take you to the top of some mountains.
Alongside a new update, Epic Games has released the Week 6 set of challenges in Fortnite: Battle Royale. As is typically the case, there are a total of seven new objectives for Battle Pass owners to complete on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and mobile; you can see how to complete them in the video above. One important note to be aware of before diving in is that the new limited-time mode, Sniper Shootout v2, is not granting rewards, XP, or progress at the time of this writing, but Epic is working on the issue.
A fair number of this week's challenges are pretty straightforward, though they may require some time and patience. For instance, you'll need to place a Cozy Campfire, which, of course, first requires you to actually get your hands on one. Be sure to throw it down as soon as you come across one to ensure you get the credit for this.
Other challenges are simply a matter of being in the right place or using the right weapon. You'll need to deal damage with SMGs, open chests in Anarchy Acres, secure eliminations with explosive weapons (such as the new Guided Missile), and take out enemies in Retail Row. The latter two are labeled as Hard, but spend enough time in those locations and you should eventually have no trouble racking up the 10 Battle Stars offered as rewards for each.
There are two others that are slightly more involved. The first asks you to summit 10 different mountain peaks. In other words, you simply have to reach the top. You can either climb mountains individually or, if you don't care too much about your starting location, simply land on top of a mountain at the start of each round 10 different times. Take note that you'll primarily find mountains around the western half of the map.
The other more complex challenge is a Hard one that asks you to "search between a Metal Bridge, Three Billboards, and a Crashed Bus." As with past objectives like this, it's simply a matter of tracking down the Battle Star icon that's hidden in between the stated objects. In this case, you'll find it on a small mountaintop in the E7 section of the map (marked in the image below). We've got a more complete walkthrough here or you can check out the video above.
You can see all of the Week 6 challenges below. As always, you'll need the Battle Pass to take part in these (except for the existing set of free challenges), and you have the full season to complete them, which gives you through the end of April to do so. Completing challenges rewards you with Battle Stars, leveling up your Battle Pass and giving you a quick route to unlock Season 3's cosmetic rewards. You can see all the Season 3 challenges here.
