Our Fortnite Battle Royale challenge guides for the first week of Season 4 for Battle Pass owners continue.

Another week, another set of challenges for Fortnite Battle Royale. This week is a bit more special, though, as Season 4 is now underway and players have 100 new Tiers to earn along with numerous skins and items.

As always, the game’s developers have made it so that the challenges range in difficulty, meaning that players of all abilities can complete at least some of them.

One challenge that should be possible for players of all levels to complete with relative ease is to “Search F-O-R-T-N-I-T-E Letters”.

The letters are dotted around the map and you can collect them in any order (the letter you need next will always be the one that appears) so the challenge really shouldn’t be too taxing. However, we’ve got you covered if you’re in a hurry.

Reddit user Strantjanet has compiled a list of all the known locations so far, giving you more than enough options to earn the 500XP reward in no time at all:

  • Dusty Divot – On the blue power line next to the right/East of the crater
  • West of the racetrack/GUS – Triangle of trees
  • Tilted Towers – On the clocktower
  • Haunted Hills – On the eagle grave near chest spawn
  • Risky Reels – On The projector
  • Pleasant park – Roof middle
  • Containers – Top of the big shipping container near tomato
  • Salty Springs – Top of tower overlooking salty
  • Greasy Grove – At the play area next to the burger joint
  • Moisty Mire – By the helicopter and big green screen, on a tree stump
  • Lonely Lodge – On the roof of the Mansion south of Lonely
  • Wailing woods – Top of the hut in the middle of the maze
  • Snobby Shores – The letter is at the lantern at the rightmost house (brown one)
  • Pallet Palace/Town – They changed the hangar at the unnamed location near flush factory (the industry zone) and you can find a letter at the top of the building.
  • Flush Factory – Near Flush on the top of the new dance floor

It is probably possible to get all of the letters in just one game if you’re good enough to stay alive that long (we’re not).

As long as you play out the game (get eliminated or win the match before returning to the main menu), any letters that you collect during a game will be automatically added to the challenge total.


How to do secret Cleanse Tanks & Escape Fortnite Season 4 challenges

Fortnite Season 4 might be new, but an old enemy, the infamous gnome, is up to his usual antics. This means there are more secret challenges to complete. Here’s how to do them.

Fortnite’s secret challenges might be a small addition, but they’re welcome ones that keep players on their toes. It’s always nice to get one-up on that pesky gnome, but more importantly, players receive a decent amount of experience for completing them.

Fortnite Season 4 introduced a lot of new things, but it also added two new more secret challenges. They offer a modest 10,000 experience each, which makes them a nice way to boost your level. 

If you want to complete them but aren’t willing to invest the time and patience to figure it all out, we’ve got you covered.

Fortnite Season 4’s Secret Challenges all revolve around this pesky gnome.

Cleanse Tanks

The first challenge is located in Slurpy Swamp, and it’s very easy to do. 

  • Naturally, the first step is to make your way over to Slurpy Swamp.
  • Once you’re there, make your way to the main building and look for the two large tanks lying around.
  • You’ll notice that their tops are missing, which is intentional.
  • Jump inside and take a dip to cleanse them. It’s as simple as that.

Luckily, the second challenge is in Slurpy Swamp as well. However, it’s a little trickier to spot than the first.

  • First, head to the northern side of the main building. It’s the same one you were in for the previous challenge.
  • Next, look for a wall with a conveniently-placed hole.
  • The insufferable gnome who has been playing games with us this whole time will be hidden inside. 
  • To draw him out, all you need to do is walk up towards him. If you get close enough, he’ll panic and launch himself into the distance.

That’s all there is to it. If you managed to complete them both, you’ll find yourself 20,000 experience points closer to a higher level.

Many players tend to stumble upon these challenges and finish them without even realizing it. However, others aren’t so lucky, and while they aren’t necessarily hard to do, they can be a pain to find.

Who knows where we’ll run into that pesky gnome next, but it’s inevitable that we will again in when the next series of challenges have been released.

Until then, you might want to go back and finish any of the others you’ve missed.
