The 14 days of Fortnite event has a daily challenge every day in Fortnite Battle Royale, with a free reward for every one, with the final challenge revealed on January 1.

These challenges were only revealed one at a time, but with the final challenge going live on January 1, we now have the complete list, in order.

You will have a limited time to complete these challenges after the event ends, estimated to expire on January 3 or January 4.

You can see every reward in order for the 14 Days of Fortnite here – which includes items like a pickaxe, glider, weapon wrap and pet.

  • Challenge 1: The first challenge, for December 19 couldn’t be more straightforward. All you need to do is enter a Creative mode game.
  • Challenge 2: For December 20, you will need to travel to the hill west of Fatal Fields where you will see the first Candy Can. There is another just north of Frosty Flights.
  • Challenge 3: The third 14 Days of Fortnite challenge for December 21 is another simple one, as all you need to do to earn your reward is play three matches with friends. 
  • Challenge 4: For the fourth challenge on December 22, you will need to hit 4 players with snowballs. This can be a slightly tougher task, but if you’re lucky and can make some accurate throws, you should be able to get it done in a match or two.
  • Challenge 5: Challenge number 5, on December 23, requires you to fly a X4-Stormwing plane through 5 golden rings. These rings can be spotted around the sky on the Fortnite map, so you will need to find a plane and simply navigate your way through.
  • Challenge 6: For challenge number 6, you will need to find 6 total ‘Waterside goose nests’. The hint for this one is in the name of course, but we will have a full map guide for all the nest locations soon to help you get them faster.
  • Challenge 7: For the seventh day’s challenge, all players have to do is use a Boogie Bomb or Presents seven times. To get this done quickly, players should land in locations where chests are most likely to spawn to increase their chances of getting the items they need for the challenge.
  • Challenge 8: All you need to do for the Day 8 challenge is damage opponents with eight different weapons – so remember to switch weapons regularly in gunfights!
  • Challenge 9: This challenge will require a bit more traveling around the map as players are tasked with dancing in front of nine different Holiday Trees that are spread around. If you’re looking to get this one done quickly, landing in the southeast section of the map looks to be the best method. 
  • Challenge 10: The tenth 14 Days of Fortnite is another one that will require you to move around the island, although you’ll need a vehicle to complete this one. Players must land tricks in a vehicle at 10 different named locations around the map. To give yourself the best chance at completing this quickly, it’s probably worth landing at the racetrack at the southeast corner of the map and grabbing a Quadcrasher there. 
  • Challenge 11: For Day 11, Epic has given us a break from the tougher challenges. All you’ll need to do is thank the bus driver in 11 different matches. If you don’t how to thank the bus driver, check out our guide here.
  • Challenge 12: A bit of a tougher challenge for Day 12, as you will need to find and destroy 12 snowflake decorations. Luckily, we’ve got all the locations to find them marked on this helpful map.
  • Challenge 13: To complete the penultimate challenge, players will need to make their way back to Creative Mode for the first time since Day 1, and place 13 Devices on one of the islands. 
  • Challenge 14: For the last challenge, you simply need to search 14 different chests on the map. It couldn’t be any simpler – except it can, with our handy chest locations map.

Every challenge for 14 Days of Fortnite has now been revealed.

With all the challenges now live, you can jump in and start earning any of the free rewards which you haven’t already.

If you don’t manage to complete them all in time, before the event ends, don’t panic, as they will still be available for a few days after the event is over. An Epic Games employee stated they will expire on the 3rd or 4th of January.

Along with all the challenges, a new Limited Time Mode (LTM) also went live every day, with the final day launching the brand new ‘One Shot LTM’ – combining low gravity, low health and snipers only.

Players will be hoping Epic Games has plans for more of these limited time challenges in the future, as the daily tasks and excellent free rewards made for some exciting Fortnite action over the holiday period.


Why Fortnite players want “trash” vehicle challenges removed

Fortnite players are getting frustrated with vehicle challenges, with some of them asking Epic Games to remove them from the popular battle royale entirely – here’s why.

Vehicles have become a staple of Fortnite, and The Island wouldn’t be the same without them. Whether you want to cruise the roads in a car, take to the waters in a motorboat, or even zoom around the skies in a plane, you can do that (unless they get vaulted, that is).

But while they may be fun to ride, they’re not necessarily going to help you win; there’s no respawning in Fortnite’s battle royale mode, so driving a noisy vehicle that will get the attention of all your opponents isn’t always the best idea.

Despite this, vehicles often feature in the game’s challenges, which are essential to earn that all-important XP to help level up the Battle Pass – and it’s something players are getting frustrated with.

Most recently, the Season 5 Week 7 legendary challenge requires players to ‘Damage Opponents in Vehicles’, with quite a few tiers to tick off. Completing this challenge in full requires a total of 2,500 damage to opponents in vehicles, which is no easy task.

In a Reddit thread titled “Can we stop with the vehicle challenges please?” several Fortnite players have left comments airing their frustration about the constant vehicle-based quests and how hard they are to finish.

“The vehicle challenges are absolute trash,” wrote one player, while another added: “The game’s just becoming more and more of a grind, the legendary challenges have been a joke this season.”

The main problem people seem to have with vehicle challenges is that once they go live, no one wants to drive as they’ll become a target for other players wanting to complete the challenge. As a result, you have 100 players waiting to damage vehicles, and no one actually driving them.

Besides this frustration, other players have argued that there aren’t enough vehicles located around the map to be able to complete the challenge in the first place, and to make matters worse, there are no vehicle-based LTMs to get easy damage in either.

Players are calling for vehicle challenges to be removed from Fortnite.

“Just this challenge existing means people are not going to drive vehicles as much because everyone is going to be waiting for someone else to get in a vehicle so that they can shoot them,” wrote one player.

Another added: “I thought the mission was to deal damage WHILE riding in a vehicle. But since it’s to deal damage TO people in a vehicle, I’m thinking ‘Who the hell would make themselves a target like that?'”

A third pointed out that many vehicles are riddled with bugs and glitches, which makes having to use them even more frustrating: “No one’s riding in them unless they have to because they’re really buggy currently.”

Whether Epic will take heed of these concerns remains to be seen, although it seems unlikely right now.

They did recently promise to ‘look into’ claims that the customizable superhero skin was “unfair” and effectively “pay-to-win” as it allowed players to hide at night, so they are definitely listening when needed.
