We're in the midst of Week 2 of Fortnite: Battle Royale Season 6, which means there are challenges for players to undertake on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, and mobile--albeit a batch that isn't especially exciting. As has been the case recently, the new challenges are divided up into two categories: those available to everyone, and those reserved for players who've purchased a Season 6 Battle Pass. Either way, completing them will earn you XP and help you to unlock some of the new Season 6 rewards, not to mention kill some time until the new gun arrives.

The challenge that requires the most legwork this week is to visit all of the Corrupted Areas, which began cropping up around the map after the locations were visited by the mysterious purple cube toward the end of Season 5. There are seven of these Corrupted Areas scattered around the island, and completing the challenge is simply a matter of heading to all of them over the course of several matches. You can see where all of them our in our dedicated Corrupted Areas challenge guide.

Beyond that, the rest of Week 2's challenges are fairly straightforward. One has you use a Shadow Stone in three different matches, which can be accomplished easily enough as you're traveling to different Corrupted Areas, as that is where the stones most readily appear. Most of the other challenges involve either eliminating or dealing damage to other players using a particular weapon. You can the full list of Week 2's challenges--and the rewards they bestow--below.

If you've already finished all of last week's challenges and complete this latest set, you'll also complete the Week 2 Hunting Party challenge. The reward for this is a special loading screen pointing to a free item hidden somewhere around the map. Rather than the usual Battle Star, however, the item this time is a free banner. If you need help finding it, be sure to check out our Week 2 Hunting Party challenge guide.

Season 6 of Fortnite kicked off last week, on September 27, and it's introduced a ton of new cosmetic items and other rewards to get your hands on, including adorable Pets that you can carry around on your back. You can see all of them in our Season 6 rewards gallery. These are unlocked as you complete challenges and level your Battle Pass up. If you need pointers, you can find tips for all of the challenges available thus far in our Season 6 challenge roundup.
