Fortnite Battle Royale players around the world started their game on Tuesday, May 29th, to begin working on the new Challenges, but it looks like they will have to wait until May 31st.

While Fortnite Battle Royale is completely free to play for anyone that wants to play it, a “Battle Pass” can be purchased for 950 V-Bucks (approximately $10).

Each week, a number of new challenges go live for Battle Pass owners to try and complete. This is also the quickest way to earn experience points, rank up to Tier 100, and earn various cosmetics, outfits, and more in the process.

The weekly challenges have been going live every Tuesday for a number of weeks, but they were traditionally made available each Thursday and it looks like the game’s developers want that to become the norm once more.

Players around the world started up the game on May 29th in anticipation of the Week 5, Season 4 Challenges going live but were met with the countdown clock showing 0 seconds with no challenges actually being available.

It turns out, according to Epic Games, that this was entirely intentional. The developers took to Twitter to say that it is a “KNOWN ISSUE” and “This was an intended change to push back Weekly Challenges to Thursdays.”

The news hasn’t gone down particularly well with community members as players question the decision to wait until after the challenges were due to go live to inform people.

It seems likely that the Tuesday patch will also be pushed back to Thursday as challenges and updates tend to go live at the same time.

The expected Challenges for Week 5, Season 4, were leaked on May 26th and can be found here.

Fortnite’s Marvel-themed Season 4 takeover is almost winding down, but there’s still plenty of opportunities to grab some last-minute XP boosts with our guide on the Week 10 challenges.

Season 4 of Fortnite has seen tons of new content over the weeks. On top of the ample supply of cosmetic unlocks, Epic has deployed everything from new abilities to secret challenges.

With the ongoing storyline teasing major changes each passing update, time is of the essence to get everything done before we reached Season 5. Once the rare items are gone from the game, there’s no chance at claiming them anytime in the future.

So if you’re trying to make every minute count and get the most of your experience gains, weekly challenges are for you.

Things couldn’t be simpler this time around and we’ve got you covered with everything there is to know about the week 10 objectives.

You’ll need to prioritizing vehicles early on to tick the latest challenges off your list.

First up, all of the usual tasks are listed once again. You’ll need to search some chests, find some quick kills, and collect various resources. These can all be smashed out in the blink of an eye without any real difficulty.

Vehicles will be a big priority over the next few days as there are three unique challenges to tick off. One will have you racing from The Fortilla to The Authority in under four minutes. Meanwhile, the other simply asks you to stay in a vehicle for a long period of time and travel the map.

Arguably the most difficult of the vehicle-specific challenges, you’ll need to eliminate a few enemies with them. This means you may have to catch some opposing players by surprise. Be on the lookout for explosives that could end your run before it really begins.

You can blitz through a handful of these activities at the same time but others require a more focused effort. Below is the full list of challenges for the latest week in Fortnite.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 10 Challenges

  • Search Chests at Upstate New York
  • Eliminations at Lazy Lake
  • Collect Metal from Slurpy Swamp
  • Catch fish at Heart Lake
  • Eliminate opponents by hitting them with vehicles
  • Drive a boat from The Fortilla to The Authority in less than 4 minutes
  • Ride 20,000 meters in a vehicle
  • Deal damage to opponents at Sentinel Graveyard

Expect the Sentinel Graveyard to be a hot drop for the next week.

You’ve still got a few weeks left to finish up the Season 4 Battle Pass. Though you may want to start rushing through not only these weekly tasks, but the secret challenges too. 

Every scrap of XP will help as you look to unlock the final rewards in the Marvel-centric update.
