Data miners have revealed the challenge list for Week 10, the final week of Fortnite Season 9 – here is what you’ll need to do before the season’s end.

Fortnite Season 10 is fast approaching, with an epic battle brewing to close the end of Season 9, as a massive robot is under construction at Pressure Plant, presumably to fight the sea monster that has roamed the map in recent weeks.

While we wait for more information regarding the upcoming Cattus event, players will need to focus on completing their remaining challenges in order to gain access to the Tier 100 Vendetta skin and the additional skin variants.

Week 10 challenges leaked

Data miner @Lucas7Yoshi has uncovered exactly what the challenge list will be during the final week of Season 9, thanks to game files being added to Fortnite already with the developers on summer vacation.

As always, these leaks should be taken with a grain of salt as they are subject to change when they officially go live in-game. However, last week’s challenges were exactly how the leak predicted, so this list should be spot on.

Fortnite Season 9, Week 10 challenges

  1. Use an Air Strike in 3 different matches – 5 Battle Stars
  2. Damage opponents with shotguns – 5 Battle Stars
  3. Search 7 Ammo Boxes in a single match – 10 Battle Stars
  4. Visit different public service announcement signs in Neo Tiled, Pressure Plant, or Mega Mall – 5 Battle Stars
  5. Stage 1 of 3: Collect Wood from a Pirate Ship or Viking Ship – 2 Battle Stars
  6. Stage 2 of 3: Collect Stone from a Fork Knife or Umbrella  – 2 Battle Stars
  7. Stage 3 of 3: Collect Metal from a Robot Factory – 1 Battle Stars
  8. Eliminate opponents in Pleasant Park of Paradise Palms – 10 Battle Stars
  9. Damage opponents with a pickaxe – 5 Battle Stars

The week ten challenges suggest an airstrike item will be coming to Fortnite in the next week, meaning you should be prepared to face an aerial bombardment from your enemy.

Although this is the final week of regular challenges for Season 9, it’s expected that there could be some ‘overtime’ challenges to follow, which will make up for the gap between the end of the current season and the start of Season 10.

Be sure to follow Dexerto’s challenge guides to gain those Battle Stars in the shortest time possible. 


Epic confirms long-awaited Fortnite pre-edit changes are coming soon

It’s been a long time coming, but now Fortnite players can be put at ease: Epic are working on pre-edit changes to make building easier after years of the community petitioning.

Pre-editing has been a contentious issue in the Fortnite community for years. They’re on for all players, and helps players quickly place a lot of edited builds.

However, most players don’t use pre-editing, so its existence ends up being a hindrance more than anything. It can leave players exposed due to a poor build, something they weren’t intending at the time.

Pre-edits have been the bane of Fortnite players across the world. Thankfully, Epic are working on disabling them.

A new rallying cry across the community comes across with every new season, pleading with Epic to at least give player the option to disable pre-edits. While they’ve been dodging the issue for quite some time, there’s finally been some solid news.

After a year of uncertainty with Epic stating they were “actively considering” it, they’ve now set their course on giving the community what they want.

“We don’t have an exact timetable, but we’re going to [add a disable pre-edit option],” community coordinator TheStevieT told players on Reddit.

It comes after more clips of players dying because of their pre-edited builds went viral across Reddit and other social media platforms. It’s quite the common occurrence, and with Epic now solidifying their stance, it’s got players excited.

That being said, it could be a little while before it’s added. They’ve started work, but without an exact timetable in mind, it could be seasons down the line. One can hope that it’ll be added in Chapter 2 Season 5 at the end of 2020 though.


Another Epic staffer, gstaffEpic, clarified that such a change isn’t in any of the Fortnite builds yet. However, it’s getting close, and it’s something they’re “working towards.”

It might not be the most explosive subject, but as far as quality of life changes go, this could completely transform the way Fortnite is played. We will update you once more information arises.
