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.

How to get The Mandalorian skin in Fortnite Season 5 with Baby Yoda

Fortnite Season 5 is upon us, and it’s got some very exciting things in store – but the one thing fans are most looking forward to is the leaked crossover with The Mandalorian.

Following the success of Season 4’s Nexus War, which introduced skins and weapons based on some of Marvel’s most beloved superheroes and villains including Storm and Venom, Fortnite seems to be once again teaming up with another Disney-owned franchise, Star Wars.

Recent posts from a number of leakers including ShiinaBR and others have suggested a crossover with The Mandalorian is imminent, with bounty hunter Din Djarin and the adorable viral sensation Baby Yoda both being a part of the major Season 5 update.

There’s even been a leaked advertisement for the Battle Pass, which shows off the incoming Mandalorian skin accompanied by a little Baby Yoda, which is presumed to be another Back Bling cosmetic like Rocket Racoon, from Guardians of the Galaxy.

How to get The Mandalorian Fortnite skin

We won’t know exactly how to unlock the new Mandalorian secret skin and accompanying Baby Yoda Back Bling cosmetic until Season 5 drops on December 2, but we can definitely speculate.

In previous seasons, featured skins have been unlocked when players complete Battle Pass challenges. It’s likely that The Mandalorian skin will be acquired through a similar unlock method. It will look something like this:

  1. Load up Fortnite Battle Royale.
  2. Head into the Battle Pass menu.
  3. Access the Battle Pass challenges screen, and wait for the relevant challenges to appear.
  4. Once they’ve been made available, it’s down to you to complete them.

We’ll update this page as soon as we know how to unlock these new cosmetics, so keep an eye out.

When does Fortnite Season 5 start?

Fortnite has a lot to live up to after Season 4. It saw the introduction of a number of Marvel heroes as well as the Devourer of Worlds, Galactus, for an epic Nexus War finale event.

Season 5 will kick off on December 2, although an exact time hasn’t been confirmed. It’s also been hinted by dataminers that there will be another Black Hole style blackout to bridge the gap between the end of Season 4 and the beginning of Season 5.

It’s not expected that the whole season will be themed around The Mandalorian, unlike the previous Marvel-focused Season 4, but it looks like it will likely feature enough Star Wars content to keep fans of the galaxy far, far away happy.

Season 5 also brings with it the arrival of the new Fortnite Crew membership, which includes the Battle Pass, V-Bucks, exclusive skins, and other monthly benefits for a set price.

We will continue to update this guide as new information becomes available.
