*UPDATE* Following the release of the V5.40 patch, some data miners have leaked leaked a slightly different list of challenges to the one originally found on Fortnite Tracker.

The changes include a switch to one of the “Stage” challenges for searching chests, a task of visiting seven Stone Heads (instead of the Loot Lake dance off challenge) and a task for getting “trick points” in a Shopping Cart or ATK.

The newly leaked image can be found below. As with the previous leak, all of the challenges are subject to change and unconfirmed. The Fortnite Tracker challenges are currently unchanged from the original leak.


If you’re unable to see the image, the challenges are as follows:


  • Deal damage with Explosive Weapons to opponents (500)
  • Get trick points in a Shopping Cart or ATK (All Terrain Kart) (1)
  • Follow the treasure map found in Shifty Shafts (1) – HARD


  • Stage 1: Search a Chest in Haunted Hills (1) [the later stages are currently unknown]
  • Visit Different Stone Heads (7)
  • Assault Rifle Eliminations (5) – HARD
  • Eliminate opponents in Tomato Temple (2) – HARD

Season 5 in Fortnite will be ending in September, but data miners are still hard at work looking for new information to leak, and now it looks like they’ve found the Week 9 challenges.

The leak has appeared on Fortnite Tracker, a website that is known for its accurate database and tracking network, so there is a strong likelihood that it is accurate.


If Fortnite Tracker is correct, the Week 9 challenges, which have been delayed until Friday, will feature four Battle Pass exclusive tasks, and three that are free to play (as has been the norm throughout Season 5).

As has also become the norm in recent seasons, the challenges seem to become significantly easier as we reach the final few weeks. Week 9, the penultimate week in Season 5, looks set to be the easiest of the season by quite a large margin.

If you can’t see the image above, the leaked challenges for Week 9 of Season 5 are as follows:



  • Deal damage with Explosive Weapons to opponents (500)
  • Use an ATK (All Terrain Kart) (1)
  • Follow the treasure map found in Shifty Shafts (1) – HARD


  • Search Chests in Pleasant Park (7)
  • Dance Off with another player near Loot Lake (1)
  • Assault Rifle Eliminations (5) – HARD
  • Eliminate opponents in Tomato Temple (2) – HARD

While Fortnite Tracker is a trusted source, there is always a chance that Epic Games will make some last minute changes to the challenges so take leaks like this with a pinch of salt.

The official release of the challenges is expected to come at 14:00 BST (09:00 EDT) on Friday, September 7.

The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) is back for Chapter 2 Season 4, with a return to the beloved Trios format that fans have been clamoring to see make a return. With the action kicking off on October 9, here’s everything you need to know to make sure you catch all of the action.

FNCS is making its return to trios in Season 4 for the first time since the inaugural Season X event. While it’s been a pretty poorly kept secret, there are some changes to the format from when it last appeared in August 2019.


With qualifiers now completed, we’re heading into the main stage of the FNCS Season 4 event, with a full month of competitive Fortnite on the way featuring some of the biggest names in the game competing for their cut of the prize money.

FNCS Season 4 format

FNCS Season 4 returns to the Trios format that has been used in the past, and is arguably the most popular competitive format in the tournament’s history, with past events filled with massive plays and huge battles that make for the ultimate Fortnite viewing experience.


As always, FNCS runs on a points-based scoring system, with your final placement in matches contributing to your overall score at the end of the weekend. Those who manage to win a game will receive 25 points as their reward, with the values decreasing incrementally down to 17th place, with anyone finishing below that scoring nothing. There are points for finding eliminations though, so players will be on the lookout for enemies to wipe out and add to their tally.

FNCS scoring system

  • Victory Royale: 25 Points
  • 2nd: 20 Points
  • 3rd: 16 Points
  • 4th: 14 Points
  • 5th: 13 Points
  • 6th: 12 Points
  • 7th: 11 Points
  • 8th: 10 Points
  • 9th: 9 Points
  • 10th: 8 Points
  • 11th: 7 Points
  • 12th: 6 Points
  • 13th: 5 Points
  • 14th 4 Points
  • 15th: 3 Points
  • 16th: 2 Points
  • 17th: 1 Point
  • Each Elimination: 1 Point

FNCS will be running in all the same regions it has been for the last few seasons: NA-West, NA-East, South American, EU, Middle East, Asia, and OCE, with the competition running on PC and consoles.


FNCS Season 4 will feature three weeks of qualifiers, with the top 15 teams from each week qualifying for the Grand Finals, who will be joined by the 87 teams with the highest cumulative points over the three qualifying rounds, with up to 132 teams competing in the Grand Finals on October 29.

FNCS stream

As always, Epic Games will be hosting their own broadcast for the FNCS Season 4 events, complete with commentary and analysis to make sure you catch all the action as it happens. You can check out the official Fortnite FNCS stream on their official Twitch channel, which has been embedded below.


FNCS Season 4 dates

FNCS Season 4 will run across four weeks ⁠— three weeks of qualifiers, and one week for finals. If you want to sign yourself up, these are the dates you need to know.

  • FNCS Week 1: October 9 – October 11
  • FNCS Week 2: October 16 – October 18
  • FNCS Week 3: October 23 – October 25
  • FNCS Finals: October 29 – November 1

The first day of each week will be an open qualifier. If you make the top 33 teams, you’ll be invited to play in the next two days for a chance to make it to the Finals.


FNCS isn’t the only competition coming to Fortnite Season 4. Weekly Cash Cups for Solos and Trios will be returning, while the Dreamhack Online Open (Solo) will also take place across NA and Europe.

With players set to earn up to $111,000 for winning the whole tournament, you can rest assured that there will be plenty of action when the action kicks off.
