Believe it or not, the sixth week of Season 7 in Fortnite Battle Royale is upon us, and the Week 6 challenges went live on Thursday, January 10. Here’s everything you need to know.

Week 6 once again provides players with a total of seven challenges – three of these will be free-to-play and four that will be exclusive to owners of the Season 7 Battle Pass.


The official Week 6 challenges were leaked way ahead of time, which gave us a good idea of what to expect, but the official list has now been released and can be seen in the image below:

Epic Games have been known to switch some challenges out at the last minute in the past, so we wouldn’t have been surprised if some of the leaks didn’t make the final cut. In the end, though, the only difference was that one of the free challenges swapped positions with one of the Battle Pass ones. 


With that said, here’s the full list of challenges for Week 6, Season 7 in Fortnite Battle Royale:


  • Search an Ammo Box in different Named Locations (7)
  • Search Chilly Gnomes (7)
  • Eliminate opponents in Lucky Landing or Tilted Towers (HARD) (3)


  • Visit Polar Peak and Tilted Towers in a single match
    • Stage 1: Visit Polar Peak and Tilted Towers in a single match (1)
    • Stage 2: Visit Lucky Landing and Retail Row in a single match (1)
    • Stage 3: Visit Lazy Links and Shifty Shafts in a single match (1)
  • Slide an Ice Puck over 150m in a single throw (1)
  • Deal damage with SMGs to opponents (HARD)
    • Stage 1: Deal damage with an SMG to opponents (200)
    • Stage 2: Deal damage with an Assault Rifle to opponents (200)
    • Stage 3: Deal damage with Grenades, Clingers or Stink Bombs to opponents (200)
  • Deal damage with different weapons in a single match (HARD) (5)

Only Battle Pass owners will be able to complete all seven challenges.

The challenges look like they will be fairly straightforward, but the Chilly Gnomes and Ice Puck ones should give players something new to try. We’ll have in-depth guides for both of these challenges soon.

Here’s everything you need to know about completing the Week 6 challenges!


Week 6 Snowfall challenge

The Snowfall challenge returns once again for Week 6 of Season 7. This week, you’ll be looking for a hidden Banner instead of a Battle Star.

Check out our guide on how to find the secret banner and complete the Week 6 Snowfall challenge if your’re struggling.

Search Ammo Boxes in different named locations

This one’s nice an simple – just find Ammo Boxes in any named location – Tilted Towers, Retail Row, Paradise Palms etc.


In fact, it’s so simple that we expected it to be changed or reworded slightly. That’s not the case, though, so just open a total of seven ammo boxes and you’ll be finished! You can find them just about anywhere

Search Chilly Gnomes

If you’ve spotted any gnomes dotted around the map recently, this challenge explains why.


All you’ll need to do is find seven Chilly Gnomes and interact with them. Once you’re close to one, you’ll hear a giggling sound that should make it easier to pinpoint.

If you’re struggling, we’ve put together a guide with all of the known Chilly Gnome locations in Fortnite.

Eliminate opponents in Lucky Landing or Tilted Towers

All you need to do to complete this challenge is kill a total of three enemy players in either of the locations named.

Lucky Landing and Tilted Towers are both popular landing spots, so try to some good loot early and then concentrate on eliminating opponents. You don’t have to get all three eliminations in one match, so this should be rather straightforward.

If you’ve already unlocked the Crackshot loading screen, you should be able to complete the Ice Puck challenge.

Stage 1: Visit Polar Peak and Tilted Towers in a single match

The second of this week’s stage challenges will involve visiting different locations in a single match. There are three stages in total and you’ll need to complete them in this order:

  1. Visit Polar Peak and Tilted Towers in a single match
  2. Visit Lucky Landing and Retail Row in a single match
  3. Visit Lazy Links and Shifty Shafts in a single match

Slide an Ice Puck over 150m in a single throw

Mini games like this are always fun but this one has a catch. Unless Epic Games have decided to make the Ice Puck free for everyone, you’ll have to unlock it in the Battle Pass before you even begin worrying about throwing it.

Once you’ve done that, you’ll need to add the Ice Puck to your main emote wheel and throw it. Check out our ‘Slide an Ice Puck over 150m in a single throw’ Fortnite challenge guide for more information.

Stage 1: Deal damage with SMGs to opponents

The first of the stage challenges for Week 6 will ask players to deal out a total of 200 damage with various types of weapon. After dealing 200 damage with SMGs, the second stage will be to do the same with Assault Rifles and the final stage will be with Grenades, Clingers or Stink Bombs.

Of course, Clingers are currently vaulted, but reports suggest that Dynamite will work instead.

Deal damage with different weapons in a single match

With one challenge already requiring players to deal damage with weapons, we expected this one to be a placeholder that would be changed out for something a bit more interesting when the challenges went live.

We were wrong, though. This one is more difficult than it might seem though, you’ll have to survive long enough to hit opponents with five different weapons in order to complete it. We’d advise dropping somewhere with good early game loot but moving on quickly! One point of damage is enough to count for each weapon.

We’ll be updating this post throughout the day with guides and information on how to complete each and every Week 6 challenge. You can also follow @Dexerto on Twitter for everything Fortnite related.


How to watch Fortnite FNCS Season 4: Stream, schedule, format

The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) is back for Chapter 2 Season 4, with a return to the beloved Trios format that fans have been clamoring to see make a return. With the action kicking off on October 9, here’s everything you need to know to make sure you catch all of the action.

FNCS is making its return to trios in Season 4 for the first time since the inaugural Season X event. While it’s been a pretty poorly kept secret, there are some changes to the format from when it last appeared in August 2019.


With qualifiers now completed, we’re heading into the main stage of the FNCS Season 4 event, with a full month of competitive Fortnite on the way featuring some of the biggest names in the game competing for their cut of the prize money.

FNCS Season 4 format

FNCS Season 4 returns to the Trios format that has been used in the past, and is arguably the most popular competitive format in the tournament’s history, with past events filled with massive plays and huge battles that make for the ultimate Fortnite viewing experience.


As always, FNCS runs on a points-based scoring system, with your final placement in matches contributing to your overall score at the end of the weekend. Those who manage to win a game will receive 25 points as their reward, with the values decreasing incrementally down to 17th place, with anyone finishing below that scoring nothing. There are points for finding eliminations though, so players will be on the lookout for enemies to wipe out and add to their tally.

FNCS scoring system

  • Victory Royale: 25 Points
  • 2nd: 20 Points
  • 3rd: 16 Points
  • 4th: 14 Points
  • 5th: 13 Points
  • 6th: 12 Points
  • 7th: 11 Points
  • 8th: 10 Points
  • 9th: 9 Points
  • 10th: 8 Points
  • 11th: 7 Points
  • 12th: 6 Points
  • 13th: 5 Points
  • 14th 4 Points
  • 15th: 3 Points
  • 16th: 2 Points
  • 17th: 1 Point
  • Each Elimination: 1 Point

FNCS will be running in all the same regions it has been for the last few seasons: NA-West, NA-East, South American, EU, Middle East, Asia, and OCE, with the competition running on PC and consoles.


FNCS Season 4 will feature three weeks of qualifiers, with the top 15 teams from each week qualifying for the Grand Finals, who will be joined by the 87 teams with the highest cumulative points over the three qualifying rounds, with up to 132 teams competing in the Grand Finals on October 29.

FNCS stream

As always, Epic Games will be hosting their own broadcast for the FNCS Season 4 events, complete with commentary and analysis to make sure you catch all the action as it happens. You can check out the official Fortnite FNCS stream on their official Twitch channel, which has been embedded below.


FNCS Season 4 dates

FNCS Season 4 will run across four weeks ⁠— three weeks of qualifiers, and one week for finals. If you want to sign yourself up, these are the dates you need to know.

  • FNCS Week 1: October 9 – October 11
  • FNCS Week 2: October 16 – October 18
  • FNCS Week 3: October 23 – October 25
  • FNCS Finals: October 29 – November 1

The first day of each week will be an open qualifier. If you make the top 33 teams, you’ll be invited to play in the next two days for a chance to make it to the Finals.


FNCS isn’t the only competition coming to Fortnite Season 4. Weekly Cash Cups for Solos and Trios will be returning, while the Dreamhack Online Open (Solo) will also take place across NA and Europe.

With players set to earn up to $111,000 for winning the whole tournament, you can rest assured that there will be plenty of action when the action kicks off.

Who is competing in FNCS Season 4?

While each of the FNCS Qualifying Heats are open to any player who has reached the Champion League divisions in Arena or higher, we know some of the big names who will be competing in the tournament, and their teammates for the event.
