Believe it or not, we’ve already passed the halfway point of Season 6 in Fortnite Battle Royale, a point that is highlighted by the release of the Week 6 challenges on November 1.

As has been the case throughout the season so far, Week 6 provides players with three free challenges and four that are exclusive to owners of the Season 6 Battle Pass.


The official Week 6 challenges have now gone live. They differ slightly to the ones that were leaked earlier in the week, but mostly in wording.

The official challenges are as follows:


The challenges are fairly vanilla overall, asking players to complete simple tasks like dealing damage and placing Chiller traps.

In fact, the only exciting challenge from the leak seems to be the one that asks you to ‘find a stand with Sheet Music in Pleasant Park’. As this is a multi-stage challenge, we won’t know more about it until we’ve had a chance to play it through.

The official challenges are as follows:


Free Challenges

  • Place Chillers in different matches (3)
  • Search a Chest in different Named Locations (7)
  • Shotgun eliminations Eliminations (3) – HARD

Battle Pass Challenges

  • Stage 1: Land at Shifty Shafts (1)
    Stage 2: Land at Risky Reels
    Stage 3: Land at Retail Row
    Stage 4: Land at Haunted Hills
    Stage 5: Land at Leaky Lake
  • Deal damage with a Pickaxe to opponents (250)
  • Stage 1: Find the Sheet Music in Pleasant Park (1) – HARD
    Stage 2 – Play the Sheet Music at the piano near Pleasant Park 
    Stage 3 – Find the Sheet Music in Retail Row 
    Stage 4 – Play the sheet music at the piano near Retail Row 
  • Stage 1: Elimination with a common weapon (1) – HARD
    Stage 2: Elimination with an uncommon weapon
    Stage 3: Elimination with a rare weapon
    Stage 4: Elimination with an epic weapon
    Stage 5: Elimination with a legendary weapon

Hunting Party Challenge Week 6

The ongoing Hunting Party challenge returns for Week 6 of Season 6. This week, you’ll need to find a secret Banner after completing all seven of the standard challenges. For more information, check out our in-depth guide.


Place Chillers in different matches

You won’t need much help from us for this one! Simply find some Chiller traps and use them. As there is a limit on how many you can place per game, you’ll need to play at least three matches.

Search a Chest in different Named Locations

Easily one of the most boring challenges we’ve seen this season, all you’ll need to do is search a chest at any point of interest that is named on the map (Pleasant Park, Tilted Towers etc.)


Shotgun Eliminations

Elimination challenges are a fairly common theme throughout Fortnite seasons. Picking up a kill with a shotgun isn’t exactly difficult, so we’d advise you to not concentrate on this one, just play through your games and it should be completed fairly quickly.

Stage 1: Land at Shifty Shafts

The first of this week’s ‘Stage’ challenges and the fist of the battle pass tasks will ask you to land at various different locations as time goes on.

After landing at Shifty, you’ll need to land at Risky Reels, Retail Row, Haunted Hills, and finally Leaky Lake.

Deal damage with a Pickaxe to opponents

Another fairly boring challenge, dealing damage with pickaxes can take quite some time. Your best bet for completing this one quickly will be to finish off opponents that have been knocked down with your pickaxe.

If damage only counts when an opponent is up, you might be grinding away at this one for a while.

Stage 1: Find the Sheet Music in Pleasant Park

This is a pretty interesting challenge and involves a total of four stages!

Check out our in-depth guide for a step-by-step tutorial.

Stage 1: Elimination with a Common weapon

As we predicted from the leaks, this task turned out to be another multi-stage challenge. After picking up an elimination with a common weapon, simply work your way up through the rarities (uncommon, rare, epic, legendary).

You don’t have to complete this challenge in one game, so completing it over the course of the week shouldn’t be too taxing.

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.
