The 14 Days of Fortnite event is beginning to wind down, as Day 11 is now upon us, which means a new daily challenge and reward is now live.

14 Days of Fortnite brings new challenge and reward becoming every day, giving players the chance to unlock some impressive cosmetic items completely for free over the holiday period.

If you haven’t completed any of the challenges for the previous days – such as the land tricks at different named locations from day 10 – you can visit our handy 14 Days of Fortnite challenge hub.

Day 11 features possibly the easiest challenge in Fortnite history – simply thank the bus driver in 11 different matches.


Thanking the bus driver was a feature first added to the game in Season 5, after a Reddit post demanding that the ability be added gained a lot of attention.

When inside the battle bus, all you need to do is press ‘Down’ on the D-Pad if you’re on Xbox, PS4 or Nintendo Switch, or press B if you’re on PC. If playing on mobile, simply tap the emote button in the top right.

When you’ve thanked the bus driver, it will show up in the kill feed.

Once you’ve done this 11 times – which means you’ll need to play at least 11 matches to complete the challenge – you will unlock the Day 11 reward.


For such an easy challenge, the reward is actually pretty impressive, as you will receive the rare ‘Frozen Axe’ pickaxe.
