If you’re struggling to complete any of the Season 9, Week 10 challenges, you can use our handy guides to help you earn some Battle Stars.

Fortnite Season 9, Week 10 challenges and how to complete them

Use an Air Strike in three different matches – Five Battle Stars

The first challenge of Week 10 is relatively straightforward, as players are tasked with using the game’s new Air Strike item in three different matches.


The good news is that you don’t have to find any eliminations with the weapon, or even deal damage to enemy players, so as long as you throw it, it will count towards your challenge. Remember, you can’t finish the challenge in a single match, as they must be used in three separate games.

Deal 500 damage to opponents with shotguns – Five Battle Stars

Shotguns are one of the strongest weapons in the game, so dealing damage to opponents while using them shouldn’t be too difficult.

The damage doesn’t need to be dealt in one game, but with shotguns acting as go-to weapons in close combat, it’s likely that you’ll be able to complete this challenge fairly quickly.

Epic GamesFortnite players will need to deal 500 damage with shotguns.

Search seven Ammo Boxes in a single match – 10 Battle Stars

Throughout a typical Fortnite match, you’ll constantly see the small green Ammo Boxes sitting around the map, and likely walk past them as you move across the island.

Well, for this challenge you need to make sure you’re opening every loot box you see, as you need to take the ammo from seven of these crates in a single match. If you get eliminated or can’t find the seven you need to finish this task, you’ll need to start all over again in the next game.


Visit five different public service announcement signs in Neo Tilted, Pressure Plant, or Mega Mall – Five Battle Stars

To complete this challenge, players will need to be on the lookout for the public service announcement signs that were added to the game at the start of the Doggus event.

These signs appear on the walls of buildings found in Neo Tilted, Pressure Plant, and Mega Mall, so you’ll need to keep your eyes peeled as you run around these locations. Some are smaller than others and are found on the inside of buildings, while others are massive screens that adorn the outside of structures.

Epic GamesPlayers will need to find public service announcements in some of Fortnite’s most popular locations.

Stage 1: Collect Wood from a Pirate Ship or Viking Ship – Five Battle Stars

The only staged challenge in Week 10 asks players to gather some materials from specific players, so be prepared to do some travelling if you intend on completing this challenge.

Players will need to head to Lazy Lagoon or the Viking Village above Snobby Shores to gather wood from the ships, the knife and fork or umbrella carved into the ground at The Block or Fatal Fields respectively to grab the stone, and Pressure Plant to find metal from a robot building factory.

Eliminate three opponents in Pleasant Park or Paradise Palms – 10 Battle Stars

Expect these locations to be busy, as players will start dropping at these spots in search of the three kills they need to complete this challenge.

Thankfully, you don’t need to find all three in a single match, so you can keep dropping at either Pleasant Park or Paradise Palms until you finally find all three kills.

Deal 200 damage to opponents with a pickaxe – Five Battle Stars

Put your weapons away for this challenge, as you’ll need to deal 200 damage to opponents with a pickaxe to earn these five battle stars.

Obviously, this will require you to be extremely close to an enemy player, so the easiest time to do this is probably right as they land, or another option is to stay on the Battle Bus right to the end, and hope to catch players who joined the game but are AFK, and eliminate them quickly.

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 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.
