Believe it or not, Season 6 in Fortnite Battle Royale is already entering its ninth week, meaning that the Week 9 are upon us and the time remaining to earn to reach Tier 100 and earn the Dire outfit is running out!

Week 9 will once again provide players with three free challenges and four that are exclusive to owners of the Season 6 Battle Pass.


The official Week 9 challenges went live on November 22 and are in-line with what we expected following the November 21 leaks.

You can see the official list of challenges for Week 9 in the image below:


The challenges look significantly more interesting than most of the weeks in Season 6, and the inclusion of Dynamite and the clown boards means there’s something fresh about them.

The challenges are as follows:



  • Deal damage to players with a Clinger, Stink Bomb or Grenade (300)
  • Deal damage to opponent structures with Dynamite (10,000)
  • Rocket or Grenade Launcher Eliminations (3) (HARD)
  • Stage 1: Deal damage with Grenades to opponents (100) (HARD)

The Week 9 Hunting Party screen seems to show the A.I.M skin hunting other characters.

The weekly Hunting Party challenge returns for its eighth installment and this week you’ll be looking for a Battle Star!

Get 30s of airtime in a vehicle

We’re assuming that you need to get a total of 30 seconds in different leaps, because one 30 second jump seems pretty far fetched!

Whether you need to accumulate all 30 seconds in the same vehicle, and during the same game, is currently uncertain.


Get a score of 10 or more on different Carnival Clown Boards

So, Carnival Clown Boards have been added to Fortnite, and your task is to find some of the minigames and get a score of 10 or more on them.

For more information, including a map with all the clown board locations, check out our in-depth guide.


Stage 1: Consume Mushrooms

As there are five stages to this challenge, we expect you’ll be asked to consume various other health/shield as the challenge progresses.

Deal damage to players with a Clinger, Stink Bomb or Grenade

This is a pretty straightforward challenge on paper, so don’t be surprised if the wording changes slightly when they are officially announced.

Deal damage to opponent structures with Dynamite

This definitely sounds like a realistic challenge due to the fact that the Dynamite was added to the game in the November 20 v6.30 Content Update.

Completing it should be a simple case of lighting the fuse on some Dynamite and throwing it at anything built by an opponent. 10,000 damage might take a while though!

Rocket or Grenade Launcher Eliminations

This is the sort of challenge that we wouldn’t be surprised to see switched out when the challenges go live. Check back later for confirmation.

Stage 1: Deal damage with Grenades to opponents

Check back for more information on each stage once the challenges go live!


Fortnitemares 2020 could be bringing back Zombie Husks with a twist

Fortnite’s annual Halloween event has evolved over the years though new leaks stemming from the 2020 iteration of Fortnitemares could hint at a return of controversial Zombie Husks.

Introduced back in 2017, Fortnitemares began as a Save The World event. It soon expanded as the spooky festivities took over the battle royale mode in 2018 as well. It was in this version of the annual event that players were forced to fend off hordes of Zombie Husks.


Cubes would spawn around the map as dozens of AI-controlled Husks would charge toward squads. It could often be overwhelming and outright end your run if they’re not taken care of instantly. This led to a rather drastic change in the 2019 event where individual Zombies would spawn at random while looting instead.

While certain emotes and various items have already leaked, we now have a new piece of intel on the upcoming Fortnitemares event. Nothing is set in stone though it appears the 2018 threat could be returning in some form.

Zombie Husks were quite controversial in the 2018 Fortnitemares event due to just how many spawned at once.

In Fortnite’s 14.30 update, plenty was changed on the surface and under the hood. As new content was added in, Epic Games also made some secret adjustments in preparation for the Halloween-themed event.

“A sound for the Zombies cube spawners was changed in 14.30,” prominent dataminer ‘Mang0e revealed. While this could be nothing of significance, it would be odd for the developers to make a change like this out of the blue.

There’s no telling exactly how these cube spawners will be adjusted, though it seems certain they’ll be back in some form. 


This means every player will need to be on high alert just like in 2018. You won’t have individual jump scares to worry about this year, but overwhelming swarms of AI could threaten your run.

We won’t have to wait long to see how the annual event evolves this time around. The 2020 iteration of Fortnitemares doesn’t yet have a date locked in. However, things typically kick off in the final week of October. 

Keep your eyes peeled over the next few days as the frightful update rolls around. In the meantime, be sure to get ahead of the upcoming event with our rundown on everything we know about Fornitemares 2020 so far.
