One of Fortnite’s most popular Limited Time Modes has returned to the battle royale title, with the Getaway LTM ushering in a new batch of High Stakes challenges for players to complete – with some awesome rewards as the prize.

Epic Games rotates Limited Time Modes in and out to give players new ways to play the game, while making sure fans don’t get sick of one game mode too quickly.


Now, for the first time since Season 5, the Getaway LTM is back, and brought with it seven new challenges for players to complete alongside the Fortnite Season 8, Week 3 challenges. 

The Getaway LTM returns for the first time since Season 5.

Players have until Tuesday, March 19 to complete the seven challenges, at which point they will be locked and the Limited Time Mode will go back offline once again.


In Getaway, players race and battle each other to find the Jewel which has been hidden somewhere on the Fortnite map. Teams then attempt to escape in one of the getaway vans which are dotted around the island, with the first four squads to grab their Jewel and get away declared the winners.

Win matches of The Getaway

There are three challenges that require players to win matches of The Getaway, with players earning different Crystal Llama backblings for winning one, three or five matches respectively.


Use a Grappler in five different matches of The Getaway

Simple enough, pick up a Grappler from floor loot or a chest and use it. Repeat this in five different matches to get your hands on a special loading screen.

Pick up a Jewel in three different The Getaway matches

This challenge will require players to play the objective of this mode, as they will need to grab one of the four Jewels in three different matches to nab a special Cashflow Contrail.

Players will recieve the Cashflow Contrail for picking up a Jewel in three different matches.

Deal 200 damage to Jewel carrying opponents

Another easy challenge, hunt down an enemy player who is carrying a Jewel and fire your weapon at them. Deal 200 damage, and you receive a special commemorative spray.


Complete two The Getaway challenges

Finally, complete two High Stakes challenges to get your hands on the Crowbar harvesting tool. It doesn’t matter which two of the six you complete, so you can pick and choose what you want to do.

We’re now in the seventh week of Fortnite’s Marvel-themed season meaning that there’s not long to go until the current battle pass items are locked away for good. Here’s everything you need to know about the latest challenges to help with your experience gains.

As with every other season, XP is vital in Fortnite. Whether you’re trying to unlock one of the 100 base tiers in the Season 4 Battle Pass, or you’re pushing beyond that for ultra-rare skins, there’s always something to pursue.


Challenges are often the best way to help boost your XP gains. Most can be knocked off in a matter of minutes for some of the biggest XP dumps possible in the battle royale. If you’ve already been ticking objectives off each week, you’ll feel right at home this time around.

From searching chests to tallying eliminations, the Week 7 challenges couldn’t be simpler. Here’s our complete overview of the eight unique tasks on offer.

Be on the lookout for enemies near Doom’s Domain this week.

You’ll be jumping around the map quite a bit this week as almost every challenge will take you to a new location. Finding eliminations at Craggy Cliffs should be a breeze as this is sure to be a hotspot over the next few days. Just be prepared for an immediate fight every time you drop here in Week 7.

The same can be said for Doom’s Domain as players will be looking to enter the vault for easy XP. Make sure you have a decent loadout before heading in as you’re sure to face some opposition here.

One rather unique challenge this week asks you to deal damage in a very specific way. First, you’ll need to find and equip Storm’s Whirlwind Blast ability. Once you’ve got an enemy in your sights, use this ability to knock them back. Once they’re pushed off course, you’ll then need to swap your weapons and deal 1,000 damage.


To tick off multiple challenges at once, you could always find Storm’s ability, then head to Craggy Cliffs, or even Coral Castle. The full list of objectives for Week 7 can be found below.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 7 Challenges:

  • Search Chests at Catty Corner (7)
  • Eliminations at Craggy Cliffs (3)
  • Enter the Vault in Doom’s Domain
  • Destroy Cobwebs at The Authority (3)
  • Discover Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House laboratory
  • Drive a car from Sweaty Sands to Misty Meadows in less than 4 minutes without getting out
  • Deal damage after knocking an opponent back with Storm’s Whirlwind Blast (1,000)
  • Deal damage to opponents at Coral Castle (500)

Stark Industries will be swarmed by teams looking for the secret Lake House

If you’re struggling with the unique tasks this week, here’s a few quick pointers. Storm’s ability can be used to knock enemies off high ground vantage points. Any fall damage will count towards your weekly objective.

Additionally, Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House can be found just North of the Stark Industries POI.
